Criers are old short women wearing glasses who are met along the roads of Hamlyn Village. As their name suggests, they scream to alert nearby Bobbies and Wellies, if they realize the player is a Downer. Unlike Wellies, Criers can't fight and, as an addition to screaming, they will try running away from the player.
The player can give them bouquets to cool them down.
A red variant of the crier can be found inside the House of Curious Behaviors; she's the owner of the House and she also takes part of the secondary quest "Madame's Lost Key".
