Caretaker at the Graveyard

The Caretaker is a non-playable character in the Darkest Dungeon who's visible at the Graveyard, Provision Window, Glossary window, the Activity Log, and the Stage Coach.

He affects game play by occupying one of the different stress reliever locations in the Tavern or the Abbey, blocking one random slot every week.

Trivia[ | ]

  • It is possible that the Caretaker was the one driving the stage coach taking the player character to the hamlet in the Old Road cutscene, and his madness causes the stagecoach to crash.
  • The Caretaker has a permanent grin. He seems to have little control over it, as he covers his face at serious moments (such as when he is in the Graveyard), his twisted smile still visible underneath. His abnormal behavior resembles a condition known in the modern time as Pseudobulbar affect, which can cause uncontrollable and exaggerated displays of emotions such as laughter or crying, especially when the sufferers are in distress.
  • In Darkest Dungeon 2, the Caretaker (now known as "The Hoarder") reprises his role as a merchant.
