Losing one's Geo is a terrible thing and it's so much more likely if you carry it about on yourself.
-Millibelle the Banker
Dialogue Bottom

Millibelle the Banker is a merchant in Hollow Knight. She provides banking services for a single fee.

Despite the lack of activity in Hallownest, Millibelle opened a bank in a recluse and safe area in Fog Canyon, next to the abandoned Queen's Station. Instead of a vault, she uses her shell to store Geo- a detail she tries to brush off.[1]

However, behind her kind and polite facade, Millibelle is a thief whose purpose of using her shell to store Geo is so she can simply run off with it easily. If she gets enough Geo and when she gets the chance, she'll abandon her position with all the stored earnings.


Millibelle can be found in her bank at the base of Fog Canyon. For a small starting fee of Geo100, she provides a service to keep the Knight's Geo safe. Geo deposited in her bank is retained upon death and can be withdrawn at any time, up to a maximum of Geo4500.

After she holds Geo2550 or more and the Knight has rested at a bench or used the Stagway, Millibelle abandons her stand. Hitting the empty stand will reveal that it was a 2D cutout. The bank sign will also fall to the ground on the way out.

After this, Millibelle the Thief can be found at the Hot Spring in the Pleasure House in City of Tears. Here she can be bounced around harmlessly, causing Geo to fall out of her. The amount of Geo that can be reclaimed is exceeding the amount of Geo deposited times roughly 1.5.

Dialogue

First Encounter Hello there dearie. I was about to close up shop and run, till you came along. I provide a banking service if you're interested.

Losing one's Geo is a terrible thing and it's so much more likely if you carry it about on yourself.
My vault is much more secure. In all my time as a banker, I've never lost a single Geo!
Maybe you'd considered opening an account?

Refusing to open an account I understand. It's difficult to part with hard won Geo. I'll be here if you change your mind.
Not enough Geo to open an account Oh, hang on. You don't have enough Geo to buy an account, sadly. Once you've collected 100 Geo, come straight back and we'll get your account opened up.
Listening again after refusing Have you reconsidered opening an account? Losing Geo is a terrible thing. You'll be much more confident out there in the big, dangerous world, knowing it's safe with me.
Refusing again Still not interested? You're far too hesitant. Make bold decisions and follow them through, that's the trick to seeing your Geo grow.
Opening an account You're a smart one. Next time some dreadful beastie gets the best of you, you'll be glad to know your Geo's safe within my shel- errr...my vault. Now let's do some banking.
Dream Nailed ...When next to return to that delightful spa?... The waters so ease the tension in my shell...

Greeting Hello dearie! Keen to do some banking?
Depositing Well done dearie! I'll keep your Geo safe.
Withdrawing Thanks for the withdrawal. Don't go spending it all at once!
Canceling Changed your mind? Well, come back any time.
Farewell Goodbye then. Stay safe.

First encounter Oh...A-ah, hello again d-dearie. Fancy running into you he-here.

Is it your Geo you're after? We-ll you see, it's ahhhhh. It's a sad thing, but...It's gone. All spent.
The cost of running a bank can be high, so I had to charge a somewhat large service fee to your account.
Perfectly legitimate, of course. Just part of the whole banking deal...ah ha ha...ha.
But...ahh..thank you so much for visiting me, and run along now won't you. If you allow me some privacy, I'll be done here soon. Then you can have the spa all to yourself.
...No h-hard feelings, okay?

Greeting Wah? Oh... you- you're back. I just thought, when you left, that was the last I'd... ahh... see of you.

It's just... ahh... your Geo issue. You should know, it was a big stress on me as well. Such a stress in fact, that I've left the banking game for good.

No Geo left I--I've nothing left...I ahhh, I suppose, ahh, you might be on your way now then?

Y-y-yes, I think that would be b-best...
...I think I might j-j-just rest right here a little while. Yes I think that would be best

Dream Nailed ...Oohh no... Leave me be, creepy, little thing...

Location

Trivia

  • Fragile Greed / Grimm Troupe Icon Unbreakable Greed has no effect on the amount of Geo the Knight gets back from her shell.
  • The Geo100 the Knight deposits when opening the bank account is not returned.
  • At the Hot Spring in the Pleasure House, she will be called Millibelle the Thief.
    • She can be bounced out of screen through the room exit but does not change room. Exiting and re-entering puts her back as usual. This decreases how much how much Geo she can drop.
  • Grimm Troupe Icon Grimmchild, Grimm Troupe Icon Weaversong, and Glowing Womb will treat Millibelle in her bank as an enemy and attempt to attack her, making her cower and not interact.
  • Grimm Troupe Icon Dreamshield "tinks" off of the bank stand as if it was an enemy or damageable object.
