Young Yharnam Girl

General Info
Location Drops
Central Yharnam -


Young Yharnam Girl is a non-player character in Bloodborne. You will meet two girls depending on your choices, they are both the daughters of Viola & Father Gascoigne


This character can be found in Central Yharnam, behind a window. reached by going around the sewers and climbing back up a ladder past a Troll, she is next to a gate that returns you to the first Brick Troll you met. She asks that you find her mother, Viola, who has gone to look for Father Gascoigne.


Quest Progression

1. Return to her after defeating Father Gascoigne and picking up the Red Jeweled Brooch. It can be seen on the rooftop. Just go up the stairs and drop on the roof.
2. Choose whether to give her the Brooch or withhold it (withholding means use it for yourself, don't pick it up, or store it in the Hunter's Dream).
2a. If you give the Brooch to her she will no longer talk to you. Eventually she will leave her home. Defeating the pig in the sewers will yield a Red Messenger Ribbon.
2b. If you don't give her the Brooch, and have visited the Oedon Chapel about it being a safe haven, you can tell her to go there for safety. If you choose the Chapel the blood soaked ribbon will still appear on the pig.
3. Her Older Sister will appear in the window after you either gave the Brooch or told her about the Chapel, and have killed Rom the Vacuous Spider. She will ask you to find her younger sister who has a White Ribbon. Turn in the Red Messenger Ribbon.
3a. Walk away from her window and past the gate will trigger a dialog of the sister talking to herself.
4. Reload the area and go down the ladder from the window to find the White Messenger Ribbon.

Alternative options:

1a. If you have visited Iosefka after defeating Father Gascoigne and been told about it being a Safe Haven you can direct her to Iosefka's Clinic. The next time you visit the clinic you will receive a Lead Elixir, but the red ribbon will not appear on the pig in the sewers, which also prevents you from getting the white ribbon. But if you now enter the clinic's back door, from the Forbidden Woods, the young girl can be found inside, transformed into a celestial being. She's the one walking back and forth in the main hallway, near the room with the Cainhurst Summons. If you kill her she will drop the Formless Oedon rune.
1b. You may also opt to never interact with her again any time after receiving the music box (or just never talking to her at all) and she will eventually disappear from the window on her own, causing a similar premature end as sending her to the clinic, but with no rewards.


First interaction with window:

Who... are you? I don't know your voice, but I know that smell... Are you a hunter? Then, please, will you look for my mum? Daddy never came back from the hunt, and she went to find him, but now she's gone, too... I'm all alone... and scared..."

  • Find Girl's Mother: "Really? Oh, thank you! My m-mum wears a red jeweled brooch. It's so big and... and beautiful. You won't miss it. Oh, I mustn't forget. If you find my mum, give her this music box. [Receive Tiny Music Box] ... It plays one of daddy's favorite songs. And when daddy forgets us we play it for him so he remembers. Mum's so silly, running off without it!"
    "My mum wears a red jeweled brooch. It's so big and beautiful. You won't miss it. Oh, and if you find her, give her this music box. Please, I know you can do it."
  • Refuse: "Oh, alright... Well th-thanks mister hunter, for talking, at least. Take care, on your hunt."
    "Thanks for chatting. Please be careful out there!"
    • After reloading: "Are you that hunter? Can you look for my mum?"

After refusing to help:

If you refuse to help and talk to her after beating Vicar Amelia and triggering nightfall, she cries: "Mum, come home... I'm alone... I'm scared... It's not fair... "

After accepting quest to find her mother:

"Hello mister(miss) hunter. Still cant find my mum?"

  • [If Brooch is in inventory]
    • Give: "Miss Hunter... was it really her?...Mummy...mummy... Don't leave me alone..."
    • Do Not Give:
      "Yes, okay. I can wait. Mum knows I'm very brave, and you're very kind. I'll be a good girl. I promise"
    • No:
      "Oh, okay. But isn't there something I can do? Maybe mum and dad are stuck out there, waiting for me to come to them. What do you think, mister(miss) hunter?"
      • Tell of Oedon Chapel: "Yes okay, thank you very much mister hunter! I love you almost as much as mum and dad, and grandad!"
      • Tell of Iosefka's Clinic:
      • Withhold Information: "Yes, i see... I can wait, I won't be afraid. I know, I do. The morning always comes."
  • After turning in the Brooch, idling outside the window for several moments will elicit the whispers of a man, saying "So, call out to your sister...".

After directing her to safety, and picking up the ribbon:

(From this point on, it's the Little Yharnam Girl's older sister speaking)"Oh, you haven't by chance... seen my little sister, have you? I told her to look after the house, but she's run off somewhere. She's still quite small, and wears a big white ribbon. Have you seen her out there anywhere?"

  • Give Red Messenger Ribbon: "Oh, how did this happen... Why would she ever go outside? At least... I'll have something to remember her by.
  • Do Not Give: "Oh, okay then. But if you do see her, would you give me word? She's a small girl, with a big white ribbon. My dear little sister..."
  • After not giving Ribbon and talking again: "Oh, back again? Any news of my sister?"

Later heard outside while near window, but without interacting with it:
"What a perfect ribbon, and now it's mine. I can't wait to try it on."
Interacting with the window at this point:
"Oh, it's wonderful..."


  • Young Yharnam Girls are Gascoigne's daughters and, very likely, Henryk's granddaughters.




Other Notes

  • If you progress too far in the story before completing the quest, it becomes impossible to complete as checking the window will yield "[No Response]" like many other windows and door around Central Yharnam.
  • A rumor states that the Yharnam Girl can reach the Cathedral Ward if the player avoids picking up her mother's brooch. This has been tested proven false.
  • To initiate this quest, seems like she must be talked to before advancing the night (Killing Vicar Amelia), else she'll say a generic line of where her mother is, followed by "No Response" if you go away and come back.
  • If she hasn't give you the Tiny Music Box yet, you can hear it playing when you are in the area nearby her window.
  • The White Messenger Ribbon is actually the very same ribbon as the Red Messenger Ribbon, the older sister only washed off the blood, which is why you can't hold both ribbons at the same time.
  • For Cannon users, it is highly recommended to send the little girl to Iosefka's Clinic due to the Formless Oedon rune, by stacking all three runes, one can fire the Cannon for up to 4 times.
  • Even if you withhold information from the little girl she (presumably) still dies. If you kill the boar in the sewage tunnel after reloading the game you will find the Red Messenger Ribbon. So it is speculated that she tried to run away from home after hearing her parents were both killed by you.
  • It is possible that the older girl is not in fact Gascoigne's daughter, as the younger girl never mentions her and the older girl hesitates before asking if you've seen "[her] little sister". The older girl seems much more concerned about acquiring the younger girl's ribbon than her well being as well. Additionally the voice heard talking about the sister may just be the troll at the bottom of the ladder.

      Its easy to see why devs made the quest this way. If the child went to the OC the player would b able to kill her. And that is taboo in games

        I got the music box but forgot to return to her before beating Vicar. Now I get the "its not fair" dialogue even with the music box in inventory. Did I ruin the questline?

          So, going through the comments it's evident that every single option when interacting with the girls leads to the same result - the older one killing herself and the other serving as dinner. Just for the sake of exhausting all possibilities, what happens if you don't even start a conversation with the girl in the first two moon phases? No one to my knowledge wrote about it.

          Also, the "So cold, dear sister." line is absolutely unrelated to the girls. I clearly heard the troll that sends the flaming ball rolling down the Yharnam bridge say it.

            Wtf, is that really how it ends? A greedy sounding older sister going "yay, I got the ribbon, who cares that my little sister is dead"? damn it, bloodborn... tug at my heart strings then snip them with a pair of rust scissors. -Dakuu75

              Wait, then she has to kill her father, right? Using the music box he gave her as a little girl...

                  Ok, so I talked to her after beating Amelia. She disappeared after that. Then I went to the pig..... Yields no red ribbon. I checked the ward but she's not there either. I am gonna try inside the clinic next.

                  If she isn't there, maybe I found a way to spare her of the pig?

                    In my opinion this quest has three endings. Either letting her get killed by the pig and letting her sister die from suicide, sending her to the clinic (Which the drop is actually from Adella the nun, so might not be her) or... not letting her to either the chapel or the clinic, and hopefully she sleeps during the night, for the windows aren't broken and no signs she would turn to a beast.

                    And, I do wonder if there is more dialogue from her hidden in the unused files.

                      This was a sad fate for the young girls, ‘‘tis why I like this game very much, no happy endings and very dark consequences for some characters.

                        Soulsborne games never have been known for uplifting NPC stories, but this one really broke my heart. So much so I made a character as young as I could named "Amelia Gascoigne" just so in my own head cannon she survives that horrible night and becomes a hunter.

                          Responding to the reply I got from Anonymous. What happens, let's say, she somehow survived the pig. she would be at the places of death for both her mother and father, and possibly grandpa (the Henryk theory), so.... I doubt she would go back to the pig, but wouldn't go to the chapel, but who knows.

                          Another theory I have is that the Night of the Hunt is a "shared" nightmare, where everyone dreams it at the same time, and if you die you wake up. So if THIS is true, like both the guy at the beginning and the ending scene (execution) states, then maybe they are all alive and well?

                          I hope either one of the theories are true...

                            I'm not so sure the girl dies. The red ribbon states that it was from the organs of some victim. It doesn't say if it was the girl or not. Again, my theory was that the pig grabbed her ribbon and ripped it off. And if that were the case she could have survived.

                              The fact that she drops the oeden rune if you send her to iosefkas clinic is wrong. it's not the little girl dropping the rune, it's instead the nun who drops it. she also drops it if you kill her in oedon chapple. the little girl gets eaten by the pig instead

                                Just getting around to playing this game. I'm curious, has anyone tried killing the pig first then going and talking to the little girl? Does this change the outcome at all for the Chapel option? Seems odd she would show up as a celestial being in the clinic and not at the chapel if you cleared a path.

                                    I cant see it on this page but if you dont have the broche (i used it up) and you talk to her during the night she says "Mum come home... I'm alone...I'm scared ...It's not fair..." Didnt see this dialog on the page so i just thought i would share it.

                                      I just tested this and it seems false, or at least it might've been patched out. Witheld information, came back to see the "no response" message and killed the pig. No ribbon. Went back to the Hunter's dream and killed the pig again. No ribbon. Went back to the Hunter's dream, reloaded the game, killed the pig again
                                      No ribbon.

                                      P.s.: In my headcanon, the sister came back and they just went to sleep.

                                        Is it possible that the dialogue "Call out to your sister" is the brick troll's secret dialogue of "So cold, dear sister"?

                                          After i found the red ribbon by the pig, she said her sister left, then i found her dead by the big creature with a white ribbon but had already given her the red one, is there a way to give her the white one? also if she died by the pig why is she in there and her sister dead near by?

                                            I'm going to leave a suggestion on how there may be a chance the girl could live. I hope someone tries it, I'm still very early in the game so it's going to take me a while to get back to this part because I have already messed up. Simple, talk to her and get the music box. Go fight her father and use the music box during the fight near him, near him when he's in his second form and lastly near the mothers body, make it to the chapel and do not pick up the brooch. Talk to the chapel NPC and head back to to her window killing everything in that area, everyone accept for one enemy. That one enemy being the big guy with the big club that stands down the ladder beneath her window. The same guy that whispers ("So cold, dear sister...") and ("It's all your fault!"). Something tells me that he might actually help the little girl get to the chapel. He might also be the man's voice you hear if you stand idle by the window who says something along the lines of "so call out to your sister". If this fails there is only one other thing I recommend be done differently and that's to kill the chapel npc before you send her there. You never know, he might eat her or something, we never particularly figured out why he seems sketchy at the end of his speech. Good hunting.

                                              i actually was able to progress the quest up to the point oftelling her her mom died, but ithe pig nevr dropped anything and her crying was the last dialogue of that window, i picked up the carillon right after killing gascoigne and the brooch after killing henryk, which i killed after amelia iirc.

                                                So do the brick trolls change what they say after you meet the sister? It always sounded to me like they say "so cold" but in a recent playthrough I noticed after I returned to see the sister that they all seem to say "so cold, dear sister" and I sort of figured it is in some way related to the young Yharnam girl and her "sister"
