Red Dead Wiki

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


The Hermit Woman can be found living in her home in northwestern Big Valley, West Elizabeth. If the player comes too close to her cottage, they will be attacked by her mangy dogs, and she herself will shoot at the player with a shotgun.



  • One half of a treasure map can be obtained by searching her cottage. The other half is located in Manito Glade. This suggests that the two hermits are related since each of them possesses a part of the map.
  • Hermit Woman is one of the many points of interest that can be found across the map.
  • The woman's appearance and items seen throughout her shack may suggest that she is a witch; Arthur himself wonders if she is one.
  • It's possible that the Hermit Woman is the wife of Otis Miller.[1]
