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.

      The voice isn't saying "so call out to your sister." Its the brick troll saying "so cold, dear sister"(Vicar Amelia).

        I can safely say that you can have BOTH ribbons in your inventory at the same time. Right after I spoke to the older sister I went down and killed the pig. It dropped the Red Messenger Ribbon. After that, I went to the Hunter’s Dream and then teleported back to Yharnam. I went down the ladder and picked up the White Messenger Ribbon. Now I have both.

          "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...". Not exactly true. The phrase is "So cold, dear sister" and is spoken from time to time by the brick trolls around Yharnam. In this particular case, by the troll down the ladder from the girl's location. And he does that regardless of the girls quest.

            Think of it like this ... you complete the full quest, every family member dies and reunites in the afterlife to be together for eternity!

              I choose to believe she escaped the pig into a small crevice or alleyway just barely avoiding her head getting bitten off by the pig, but the pig did snag her bow in the attempt. She spends the rest of the night hiding.

                The best solution is to honestly just not give her what she asks for. She's a kid, she shouldn't go out at all during the hunt for any reason. Nor be given a reason to. And unlike most NPC's, her sister seems rather unaffected by the Blood Moon appearing, so it's not like anything bad will happen to either of them. Sometimes the best moral decision is to simply do nothing at all.

                  There is apprently rumors and "supposed" cut content where the girl actually does make it to th chapel and was another way to get the Formless Oedon rune and dialog where she says along the lines of how she sees you like her dad was, a brave and fearless hunter to those you care about. which honestly they cut it because a child model was probably too much for some reason, but i'd of loved to of seen this content (that is if the rumors are true on this being cut content) but she'd still of died like most the other NPCs when they deal with the bloodmoon.

                    If you talk to her, it shows that in a world of chaotic blood lust that there is still empathy, residing in at least one hunter. If you avoid her, you're still ridding the areas of blood thirsty beasts being her silent guardian. Either way the "gods" are still watching a selfless act coming from a killer. Either way, the hunter would fight to save at least one little girl.

                      There is a man speaking instead he says to go to the ancient shrouded church hidden to the right of the main cathedral and that the god head will grant me strength.

                        Hey btw the dialogue section on this wiki is incomplete, if you accept her quest then come back after advancing the night she says the following: "Mum, come home..." "I'm alone...I'm scared" "It's not fair..."

                          Why does this article say the player kills both parents? At what point in the game does the player kill Viola?

                            Hey you shouldn't use a picture of the blood moon for this article. Since people most likely will see or at least start this quest before it happens. You're spoiling for no reason

                              Every time i stand in front of that window i realize how *****ing much i hate that Pig and punch the living***** out of it with my magical Boxinggloves called Kosparasite. -Leotox

                                If you don't want them dead, don't start the questline. Not even one dialogue line. Avoid that window like a Winter Lantern. It's the only "solution" that doesn't give the pig a blood ribbon at any point in the game or turn her into a celestial. What happens then is anyone's guess, but headcanon is way preferable to any of the alternatives.

                                    It's very unlikely Henryk is related by blood to either Gascoigne or his wife. Henryk is black, whereas Viola, Gascoigne and the presumable older daughter are white. (You never see the little girl from the beginning, but considering her family she must be white as well. )

                                      i tried to save the girl but couldn't maybe using the red jeweled brooch on the altar of despair and her mum revived and everyone was happy . maybe using the red messenger ribbon will have a similar effect?

                                        The voice talking about the sister is definitely the troll at the bottom of the ladder, if he's dead the line doesn't play, and it gets louder if you sneak up to him.

                                          I was thinking If I kill the giant pig and (just to be sure) the brick troll, and then talk to the girl whiteout reloading the area, could be possible for her to reach the Chapel?

                                            In the dialogue section it says that idling after turning in the brooch causes a man's voice to say "so call out to your sister" but that's not true. That actually comes from the brick troll at the bottom of the ladder, because they occasionally whisper "it's so cold... dear sister". I think whoever put that in made a mistake

                                              I killed wet nurse and went back to the house where the little girl was. I’ve completed her entire quest line so the house was empty. As soon as I approached the area i heard the tune of the music box/Mergo’s lullaby. Has someone experienced this too?
