Hi there! Just wanted to say that I love your blog. The lore, the art. It's amazing, keep up the good work! Also wanted to ask what your thoughts are on Djura, what his story is etc. His quest was super short and kind of pointless, but he's still my favourite NPC. From his dialogue and armour set I managed to put some pieces together, but I love to hear what you got. Thank you :) & stay awesome!
Thank you so much >////v////
About Djura, I agree with you! He is a really interesting character both design-wise (I love his set) and as far as his personality goes but sadly there’s very little to be said about him.
We know he is one of the last remaining Powder Kegs and was most likely present when Old Yharnam got burned to the ground. His set has high frenzy resistance which may indicate that he was able to resist blood drunkness enough to stop himself from taking an active part in the slaughter.
Djura is known through his contact with the Powder Kegs, the heretics of the workshop. He is said to have been both uncommonly kind and dreadfully foolish.
“uncommonly kind and dreadfully foolish” sound like two extra good reasons why what he witnessed/took part in would affect him to the point that he decided to retire from the Hunt completely. It would be interesting to understand if he became a Hunter of the Dream after or before that happened but as far as I know nothing in the game provides any sort of real indication.
He never mentions any of the other hunters (unlike Eileen who knew both Gascoigne and Henryk) but he doesn’t protect Old Yharnam completely on his own since we can find his ally there. So well, at least we know he did not completely exile himself from human society XD
Some people suggest there may be a connection between him and Paarl since crossing Yahar’gul and getting to Old Yharnam from the other side is a requirement for befriending him but killing Paarl isn’t an actual requirement which makes the whole thing even more confusing @_@
His quest not only is really short, but also pretty weird and convoluted if you ask me and smells of cut content just like the Altar of Despair :(
