— Retired Hunter Djura

Retired Hunter Djura, is a character in Bloodborne.


Djura is a legendary Hunter who, despite his old age, still displays a vast amount of skill when facing the beasts and seems to be strong enough to use his signature chain gun.

Djura has long, laid back gray hair and sports an old Dutch gray beard. He is apparently one-eyed, since he uses a bandage as a makeshift eyepatch for his right eye. Djura is dressed in tattered, silver clothes and wears a tricorn similar to the one from the Hunter Set.



Djura is an old veteran hunter who is said to possess amazing skill. No one has seen him in many years, since he ventured into Old Yharnam, deserted and burned to the ground after the plague of the beast took its toll there long ago. Some of his dialogue suggest he still sees the beasts as sentient, intelligent beings, and so has a problem with their slaughter and is hell-bent on keeping hunters out.


Djura is comparable to a skilled human invader in terms of difficulty, and the small combat area does little to help the situation.

  • When approaching his rooftop perch he will attack the approaching player with a constant volley from his mounted Gatling Gun.
  • Once confronted Djura will switch to a Stake Driver and Hunter Blunderbuss while tossing the occasional Molotov at his opponent. Djura is an incredibly aggressive and quick opponent giving players very little time to heal or counter his attacks and will do a quick dash attack, which has a very brief charge time, an explosion attack from his Stake Driver or repeatedly fire his Blunderbuss at players who attempt to gain distance or heal. Healing will often lead to Djura using his dash attack.
  • Quick attacks or poorly timed gunshots will cause Djura to respond with a gunshot of his own, staggering the player and giving Djura an opportunity for a Visceral Attack. Djura can also be staggered.
  • Djura can be shot off the rooftop. Reloading the area will make it possible to go back and loot Djura. Baiting him to run towards the player and then climbing down the ladder can sometimes cause him to fall off, but if timed poorly, can lead to a quick shot in the back, knocking the Hunter over the edge.

Upon killing Djura, players can loot his body for the Powder Keg Hunter Badge, and his trademark Ashen Hunter Set will be purchaseable from the Insight Bath Messenger.


While most new players will just outright get to Djura and kill him so that they are no longer shot at with the chaingun, it is possible to befriend him, but only through a very contrived and time consuming method.

Befriending Djura requires only two things:

  1. Enter Old Yharnam from the back, as entering through the front will always cause him to be hostile.
  2. Do not kill any beasts.

Here, the player is given a dialogue choice, where both options result in a neutral Djura. Sparing the beasts will reward the player with the Powder Keg Hunter Badge and the "Brush off Dust" gesture.

Attacking any beasts in Djura's vision will cause him to become hostile and mount the gatling gun once more.

  • It is advised to befriend Djura as it allows players to acquire his gesture. Killing him after befriending him is also reccomended in order to acquire his trademark Ashen Hunter Set.
    • If players befriend and then decide to kill him, there is a rather easy strategy to deal with as he can be pushed off the tower with the Beast Roar without aggroing. This is due to the fact that this Hunter Tool does not deal any damage.
  • If players are keen on killing Djura easily, then equip a pistol-type firearm, climb the stairs, and immediately spam-fire Djura relentlessly. Djura will fall from the edge and die instantly. Reloading the game makes the Powder Keg Hunter Badge spawn where he stood on the tower.


  • Djura claims that although once a hunter, he does not partake in the dream or the hunt.
  • Djura wears his eyepatch over his left eye in the game. However, he can be seen wearing the eyepatch over his right eye in his concept art.
  • In his artwork, he can be seen wielding a dagger, but it is currently unknown if he uses it in battle.
  • Item descriptions state that the Hunter Hat is modeled after his cap.
  • If the player has entered Old Yharnam through the back, after performing the necessary requirements to befriend Djura, when climbing the ladder to Djura's gatling gun spot, he will walk forward, almost to the center of the area, instead of standing near the gatling gun itself when he is hostile.
