Yharnamites are characters in Bloodborne.

Description

Yharnamites are citizens who are 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 blood. Their chant, "bless us with blood", can still be heard here and there in the foggy alleys. Yharnamites prefer blood to alcohol, as the former is more intoxicating.

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 received.

The Healing 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-up the incidents and deploy hunters to discretely dispose of the afflicted. This was the era of the first generation of hunters under Gehrman, the First Hunter of the Hunter's Workshop.

But then, the Paleblood Moon first appeared. This greatly accelerated the beast transformation. The beasts became more numerous and prowled the streets. The Hunters were no longer capable of quietly containing the threat. The Healing Church could not hide the scourge any longer.

Mob

In response, the Church formed their own official workshop to replace the former and appointed Ludwig as the first official hunter of the Church. Ludwig decided to arm and train the citizenry to fight the beasts as his Church Hunters. Following his call, many Yharnamites that lacked his training also joined the hunts, which soon became a regular event. This mob, led by the Church's black-garbed doctors and church servants, roamed the streets where they cut down the beasts and the infected. Anybody who showed symptoms of the plague would be purged indiscriminately. The Church now operated without care for how they looked 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. Equipped 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 brought torches and Molotov Cocktail, for they believed fire can cleanse impurity. The only advantage the mob held against the beasts were their shear numbers, an advantage they soon lost as the hunt progressed and the plague transformed more people.

After the incident that struck Old Yharnam, the Church closed the Great Bridge leading to Cathedral Ward abandoning the citizens outside to their fate. Free of the Church's direction, the mob now hunted beasts and outsiders alike, believing that outsiders were the source of the scourge. These huntsmen, however, were afflicted themselves and slowly turned into the creatures they hunted. Their beastly transformation is apparent to the Hunter even as their night begins.

The few sane Yharnamites locked themselves inside and use incense to ward off the beasts. Some of them can be interacted with from their candle lit window or through their doors. 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 general resentment towards the hunters, many Yharnamites believe that the Hunter wants to trick them to open their door in order to rob or slaughter them. Due to this, many of them remain in their so called "safe houses". They generally don't last for long, as either the beasts break in, or they become beasts themselves.

Notable Yharnamites

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

Dialogue of Yharnamite Dwellers During Evening Phase

Red lantern npc

Only the Yharnamite dwellers that still retain their sanity can be interacted with. A red lantern located on their wall or at door step will indicate that the owner of the house can be interacted with. The only exception to the rule is the house with a wooden ribbon carved on its door (where is it?).

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.
  • There is a woman who was tied to her bed and left to die in Hemwick Charnel Lane.
  • There are many body bags in Hemwick Charnel Lane. They appeared to be people who were kidnapped and put into bags to transport easier to the Hemwick for organs harvesting.
