The Bastard of Loran is a material in Bloodborne.
- Special Material used in a Holy Chalice ritual.
- Remains of Loran infant infected by the scourge. A harbinger of curses and symbol of defilement.
- The additional rite Curse defiles dungeons in which hunters' HP is greatly eroded, but what better place to seek cursed blood gems but in the midst of defilement?
- Found in Chalice Dungeons, usually as rewards from chests.
- Can be drop by Silverbeasts (Only Silverbeasts encountered in the chalice dungeons can drop Bastards of Loran)
- In NG+, can be bought from the Insight Bath Messengers with 7 Insight.
- It is unknown why it is called a "Bastard", though it is possible it alludes to it being a failed attempt to produce an infant Great One.
