Bought from Bath Messengers.

The Hunter Chief Emblem is a Key Item in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

A cloth emblem that belonged to the captain of the Church hunters long ago. Opens the main gate that leads to the round plaza of the Great Cathedral.
The main gate is shut tight on nights of the hunt, and could only be opened from the other side with this emblem. In other words, the captain's return, and this emblem, determined the end of the hunt.


The Hunter Chief Emblem can be purchased from the Bath Messengers for 10,000 Blood Echoes after defeating the Cleric Beast.


The Hunter Chief Emblem unlocks the gate in the Cathedral Ward, which leads to the Grand Cathedral.


  • With 50 or more Insight, Messengers can be seen crowding around the lever that opens the gate. They are the ones who pull the lever when shown the emblem.
  • This item's design greatly resembles a Talisman from the Dark Souls series, catalysts for miracles, and used by clerics. This is fitting as it is meant to having belonged to Ludwig, the very captain of the Church hunters.
  • The symbol within the emblem represents the Communion rune.
