Yharnamites are characters in Bloodborne.

Description

Yharnamites are citizens, native to Yharnam.

The Moon Cycles will greatly affect the interaction with them during gameplay.

Lore

Yharnamites are citizens, native to Yharnam. They worship the Great Ones and their miraculous old blood. The chant "bless us with blood" can still be heard here and there in the foggy alleys. People in Yharnam prefer blood to alcohol, as the former is more intoxicating.

The church supplies the citizens with blood, treat the sick with Blood Ministration and hold the highest position in the society. Unbeknownst to them, the very same blood was the source of the scourge of beasts.

At first, the church would cover the incidents and deploy hunters to sneakily dispose of the transformed. This was the time of the first generation of hunters. But when Gehrman, the First Hunter disappeared, the beasts freely roamed the street and the church could not hide the scourge any longer.

Mob

In response, the church formed their own workshop and appointed Ludwig the first official hunter of the church. Ludwig decided to arm and train the mob to fight the beasts. Following his call, many Yharnamites joined the hunt, which soon became a monthly event. The mob, led by the church's black doctors and church servants, roamed the street and hunted down the beasts and the infected. Anyone who showed symptoms of the plague and their family would be purged indiscriminately and without care for how it would look to the public. Those who had lost family and friends started to show resentment towards the hunters and the hunt.

Beast BBQ

The mob that had arisen to join the hunt were poorly armed. Armed with pitchforks, axes and wooden shields, all of which are ineffective against a single beast, let alone the hordes of beasts that run rampant. They often bring torches and Molotov Cocktail, for fire is thought to cleanse impurity. The only advantage the mob held against the beasts are their shear numbers, an advantage they soon lost as the hunt progressed.

The miraculous blood of the Healing Church attracted all sort of sickly travelers to Yharnam to seek treatment. Many outsiders, like Father Gascoigne and Eileen, became citizens of Yharnam and joined the hunt themselves, sometimes as a form of payment for the treatment they recieved.

After the incident that struck Old Yharnam, the Church closed the Great Bridge, abandoning the citizens outside Cathedral Ward to their fate. Blinded by the Church's propaganda, the mob now hunts beast and outsiders alike, believing outsiders to be the source of the scourge. These huntsmen, however, are afflicted themselves and slowly turn into the creatures they hunt. Their beastly transformation is apparent even as the night begins.

The few who still retain their sanity locked themselves inside and use incense to ward off beasts. Some of them can be interacted with from their candle lit window. Some of them might even ask for shelter while providing information to the Hunter, provided the hunter knows of such places.

Because of their xenophobia towards outsiders, their fear of beasts and their resentment towards the hunters, many Yharnamites believe the Hunter wants to trick them to open their door. Due to this, many of them remain in their so called "safe" homes, only for the either the beasts to break in, or for them to become beasts themselves.

Notable Yharnamites

These Yharnamites can be interacted with and serve as side quest givers in the game.

Dialogue during night phase

After the death of Vicar Amelia, either a message "no response" will pop up or some maniacally inhuman screeches and screams will be heard upon interacting with many dwellers, suggesting they have either been slain by the beast or transformed into something inhuman themselves.

Some dwellers can still be interactable

Trivia

  • Arianna and Oedon Chapel Dweller states that Yharnamite use incense to ward off the beast. "Oh, thank goodness. You're a hunter, right? Might you know of a safe place? The night is long and I've very little of the incense left... Please, there must be some nice place to run off to?" Arianna ran out of incense so she pleads The Hunter to find her a safe haven. This might suggest some Yharnamite are dead after night fall due to incense shortage.
  • Many Yharnamites, mostly woman and children, are petrified at Yahar'gul, Unseen Village. They can be mistaken for statues but the express on their face and their behavior reveal their true nature.
  • The woman in Forbidden Woods is in fact infected with the plague of blood and beast and already transformed . She, along with Vicar Amelia, are a few woman who are transformed.
  • Many people believes that the red lantern outside these NPCs' doors are filled with incense. In fact, incense is stored in pot, which are visibly abundant in Oedon Chapel.
