— The Doll

The Doll is a character in Bloodborne.

Description

In-Game Description

An ordinary doll, but as the story progresses, something might change.

The Doll is found outside the Workshop, in the Hunter's Dream, as an inanimate porcelain doll. She later comes to life and serves as the Hunter's means of leveling up. She is a key character in the game's plot.

Awakening The Doll

One Insight is required to initially interact with the Doll. If Insight drops back down to zero, she will become inanimate again upon zoning into the Hunter's Dream, although it will still be possible to interact with her in order to level up.

Lore

The Doll was tenderly made by Gehrman as a means to keep him company and to also to serve the many hunters that would come to the Hunter's Dream.

The Doll is based on a student which Gehrman held affections to, Lady Maria. After Maria's disappearance, Gehrman sought to obsessively replicate her in the form of the Doll. The Doll herself has exactly the same size and appearance as Maria, as well as the same voice. However, Gehrman soon became indifferent towards the Doll's presence, possibly due to the latter lacking Maria's personality.

The Doll is soft-spoken and polite. She holds the Hunter in high regards and treats the Hunter with deep respect. Having been made by humans, she loves the Hunter, but is unsure whether her affection is real or artificial; a thought she ponders incessantly.

The Doll is very loyal to the Hunter. She accepts her role to serve, believing it to be her purpose. This is seen in all endings, as she serves the Hunter in some way or wishes the Hunter well.

Dialogue

Unused Dialogue

Notes

  • The Doll can help you level up even if she is inanimate, however, players must have 1 Insight at any point in the game and talk to her at least once before being able to level up at her inanimate body.
  • The Doll will respond to certain gestures. Gestures of bowing will often make her bow herself, and the Approval gesture will make her applaud as well. Most often, however, she will not know how to respond to them, and will instead tilt her head sideways in confusion.
  • The Doll can be killed and will revive after returning to the Hunter's Dream.

Trivia

  • The Doll will sometimes fall asleep or move to the gravestone near the house.
  • Her blood appears white, perhaps being the Pale Blood mentioned in the game.
  • Interestingly, the Doll stands about a foot taller than the player.
  • Evetta Muradasilova, who voiced the Doll, also voiced the Maiden in Black from Demon's Souls, and she also voices Lady Maria from The Old Hunters DLC.
  • Winter Lanterns appear disturbingly similar to the Doll, possessing a malformed version of the Doll Set.
  • Her connection to Lady Maria, aside from just her outward look and voice, is exhibited by the themes of her clothing, since Maria wore a broach of a lumenflower and favored the symbol as her own, Gehrman reproduced this motif in the Doll's attire by depicting lumenflower patterns and even a lumenflower necklace.
    • The Doll Set also reads: "Discarded doll clothing, likely a spare for dress-up. A deep love for the doll can be surmised by the fine craftsmanship of this article, and the care with which it was kept. It borderlines on mania, and exudes a slight warmth." This suggests that Gehrman's obsessions may be more than just Maria.
  • She hums a Russian lullaby[1] which is similar to Huntress Anna's hums (Dead by Daylight).
