The Cave Hermit is a minor character featured in Red Dead Redemption 2.



The Cave Hermit is an individual who can be encountered in the Hidden Tunnel northwest of Pronghorn Ranch in Big Valley, West Elizabeth.

After the player enters his "lair", he appears on a platform above the player and tells them to leave immediately, further informing them that he left society long ago and therefore society should leave him alone as well. Despite claiming at first to be the Devil, he later admits that he isn't, but states that he wants to be.



His general appearance indicates that he has been in the cave for quite a while once the player encounters him.


  • If the player is able to get to the higher part of the cave where the Cave Hermit is camping, he will not interact with the player or move whatsoever. However, if the player stands directly in front of him and aims their gun in his direction, he will bemoan that this is why he hates humanity.
  • Interestingly, a glowing red pentagram can be found near him as well, possibly indicating that while not himself the Devil, he is in fact being manipulated by demonic forces.
