Corruption is an Oath Memory Caryll Rune in Bloodborne.

It is associated with the Cainhurst Vilebloods.


In-Game Description

A secret symbol left by Caryll, runesmith of Byrgenwerth.
Several runes contain a nuance of "Blood," including the rune of "Corruption," associated with the oath of the corrupt.
Pledgers to this oath are Cainhurst Vilebloods, hunters of blood who find dregs for their Queen in coldblood, particularly in that of hunters.
Yet the corrupt are heretics in the eyes of the Church, and thus subject to the wrath of the Executioners.



"Corruption" rune. Symbol of the Vileblood oath.


  • This oath rune is considered to be of lesser worth, especially when compared to the others. If a player is at "near death", it is highly unlikely that they will utilize the almost unnoticeable ability. The player will likely just heal to prevent death, therefore making it pointless. Even when out of Blood Vials, depending on this oath rune does not sound like a viable strategy.
  • Equipping an Oath Memory Caryll Rune signifies the Hunter's oath to be a member of the group it is associated with. This means that they will be in conflict with the Executioners, hunters who equipped the Radiance Rune.


  • It is the same symbol players can get over their heads if hit by the projectile of the servants of Cainhurst, which makes the ghosts far more aggressive towards them.
