Bloodborne is an amazing phenomenon from a worldview and narrative perspective; A phenomenon that exists only in the structure of video games. The World that Bloodborne puts in front of its audience consists of many layers and understanding it requires analysis of different symbols and points; Tips that are not clearly presented to the audience. Bloodborne's unique narrative structure is formed without dependence on dialogue and interlude, and relies on elements such as environmental storytelling. In order to analyze and study the vast and deep World of Bloodborne, in the series of articles on "Bloodborne's cosmology", we will deal with the beliefs, beliefs, gods, city and environments and personalities of Bloodborne. Join us in the Bloodborne World Series.
- Bloodborne's Geography (Part 1): The Hunt for Pale Blood
Chapter Two: The Healing Church, Our Lady of Mary, Joseph and Abrites
"If you are looking for blood, you must go to the Healing church. The Church has complete control over the knowledge associated with blood transfusions and their types. On the other side of the valley, east of Yarnam, is the city of the Healing Church, known as the Cathedral. In the depths of this area is the old cathedral, the birthplace of the special blood of the Healing Church or, according to rumors, its birthplace. The people of Yarnam are not very hospitable. They usually do not allow you to get close to this place but hunting is done tonight. This may be the best opportunity for you </</p>
First The mission of the hunter character after the start of the game is to go to the Healing Church and seek the answer. The Healing Church is an institution that does not formally rule Yarnam, but is the foundation and cornerstone of the city. The Healing Church is the founder of the art of the Blood Ministry, an art that Yarnam later became famous for doing. Using the special blood of the Healing church, they succeeded in curing every kind of disease and forming a religion around themselves that was dedicated to the worship of gods and blood.
Those suffering from incurable diseases often traveled to Yarnam to test their last chance in this place. The player hunter character was one of the sick, according to information released before the release of Bloodborne. He travels to Yarnam in search of blood that can cure any disease. But what is a Healing church? Where did it come from? And most importantly, what is the secret behind their special blood?
Note: To begin with, I will only use the information and evidence found in the game. I will share my personal impressions and beliefs at the end so that you, dear readers, can reach your conclusion based on the evidence presented.
The first wise member of the Healing Church that the hunter encounters is Alfred's prison . Through Alfred, the hunter learns more about the origins of the Healing church: The Healing Church is the foundation of blood healing. Well, I'm a simple hunter, and I'm not very familiar with the intricacies of the institute, but I've heard that the holy mediator of blood Healing is revered in the main cathedral, and the old Church agents reside in the upper town of the cathedral.  The tomb of the gods dug under the name must be a familiar place to any hunter. Once upon a time, a group of young Bergenworth scholars found sacred mediators deep inside the tomb. "This discovery led to the founding of the Church of Healing and the establishment of the Blood Healing."
Found. The ancient blood and knowledge of foreign-born thinkers led to a revolution in theories and experiments conducted at the university. But Professor Willem, president of Bergenworth University, opposed the idea of using the ancient blood of the saints for the evolution of humanity.
Fear the ancient blood. The dispute led to the Bergenworth schism, in which a group of scholars led by Lawrence Bergenworth left and founded the Healing Church. There are four people we know who were the founders of the church, but it is possible that their anonymous founders also played a role in shaping the History of the Church and the church. The names of these members are: Lawrence, German, Mikolash, and Maria. . A note in the cathedral reads: "The heir to the cult of blood, the ambassador of the emirate. "Put your hand on the sacred covering of the altar and engrave on yourself the wise sayings of Master Lawrence." Lawrence and his Blood Emirate heralded a new era in Yarnam and promoted a culture of bloodshed among the people.
Spread. Those who received old blood transfusions were more susceptible to the plague. In response to this dilemma, German, one of the people who sided with Lawrence in the Birgnorth fissure, set up the Workshop. The workshop, located in a secret location at the top of the cathedral, was the training ground for the best warriors sent by the Church to hunt down demons and prevent public panic.
"One of the standard hunter clothes sewn in the workshop," reads the game's Hunter Attire. An efficient hunter who is a stable guard for those who face the monster threat of Yarnam. It allows the hunter to chase the demons in the night cover. "
The last sentence is very important . "Allows the hunter to chase demons under the cover of night." Originally, the workshop was most likely a secret institution. The hunters wore no symbols or uniforms except the Saw Hunter medal, which they each possessed to identify their counterparts: "The medal was made in the workshop in the past and testified to one's abilities as a demon hunter. "The workshop is gone, and no other group recognizes this meaningless medal."
Awareness of the fact that the blood they have injected turns them into horrible monsters.
But what about Maria? According to the description of Maria's hunter's robe: "One of the first hunters, all German students, was Maria's hunter's lady. "Maria has a distant blood relationship with the immortal queen, but she had a lot of respect for German, no matter how unusual she was." Although she was a Queen's relative, this kinship did not mean much to the Kinehurst aristocratic royal family, as each of these aristocrats also liked to tell anyone who came their way about their family relationship with Annalise. Not particularly important.
On the other hand, Maria used He was not interested in weapons that worked with blood. Rakuyo's explanation states: "This sword does not feed on blood and instead requires a great deal of skill. "Lady Maria cherished Rakoyu's quality because she did not like bloody weapons, despite the fact that she was a distant relative of the Queen." did not have. "One day, when he and Orphan could not find him, he threw Maria Rakoyu into Hamlet's well.
We first hear about Lady Maria from patients at Nightmare Research Hall as role players. They call him and speak of him in a mixed tone of respect and even affection. They ask him to hold their hand or help them or take care of them.
"The key to the first floor balcony of the research hall. Lady Maria from the Astral Clocktower gave this key to Adeline's patient. "Maria hoped that Adeline would calm down in the gentle breeze that accompanied the scent of flowers, but Adeline did not understand what he meant." - Balcony key
Maria seems to really care about patients undergoing Church trials because she tries It made the situation better and more tolerable for patients like Adeline. Although the nature of these experiments was appalling, there is no evidence that the patients themselves had bad intentions. In addition, it seems that these patients may have voluntarily accepted the tests in the absence of mental health, and even apologized after failing them. Finally, Maria died. His death marked the end of a period and the beginning of the transformation from the Church and the hunters, from the old to the new, to the people with whom we now find ourselves struggling.
But how did Maria die? When we find him, he is clearly not alive or at least consciously dead. Evidence suggests that his throat was cut because blood had flowed down his neck from his neck. . This move could indicate Maria's suicide. Now let's take a moment to reflect on someone other than Maria and German who left with Lawrence Bergenworth: Mikulash. Little is known about Mikolash and the school of Mensis, which was undoubtedly set up to continue research in Bergenworth. From there, Mikolash was able to secretly continue his research and report to Lawrence. The description of the key to the upper part of the cathedral reads: "The higher levels of the Healing Church are the school of Mensis, which is located in the unseen village (Unseen Village) and the choir that operates from the upper part of the church."
school Mencis is probably the first sub-branch of the Healing Church because its research is more closely related to Birgenworth, and its covert research is consistent with the original strategy of the Healing Church, which was often limited to behind-the-scenes activities. Everything changed with the old name. Gray blood disease (Ashen Blood) was a terrible pandemic that spread like wildfire. Naturally, to cure the disease, the emirate of blood multiplied and was done on each of the victims.
In the matter of blood, it led to what we know as the plague (Scourge). The plague is described in the description of antidote pills: "Small medicine pills that neutralize the poison. They were used to treat gray blood, a miraculous disease that devastated ancient Yarnam in the distant past. These pills were just short-lived painkillers. "Gray blood disease eventually led to the outbreak of the plague."
After the old name, the plague could no longer be hidden from the public. The workshop was disbanded and replaced by a new group of Church healers led by Ludwig Hunter. There was no need for another workshop, so it was completely abandoned. It was probably during this period that the Healing Church gained more control over Yarnam and actually expanded its activities as the city's governing body. With the Church firmly established its position of power in the role of saviors given to the people of Yarnam by the Emirate of Blood, a choir (poets) was formed.
Who came to work after them. Kerr ruled the church, and Ludwig hunters, on the other hand, filled the newly formed ranks of the church's military force. The school of Mensis remained, but over time it became more and more detached from the church. It is possible that Kerr, due to dissatisfaction with the progress of the research that took place after the separation of the Church from Birgenworth, began to work on the blood of the benefactors.
"The members of the choir are both the highest ranking members of the Healing Church and the scholars who continued the project that began in Bergenworth." It is not clear how much of the religion promoted by the Church was used only ceremonially. And it is not clear whether Kerr really believed that they were God's providers or whether they only abused that belief to legitimize their research. They undoubtedly believed that the wise were very similar to God if they were not. The degree of attention paid to the sacred symbols and carvings in the Church can only reflect the degree of reverence and praise that has been given to the evangelists as supreme beings, especially the formless eunuch, Oedon.
To get a closer look at the motives and research of the choir, let's turn to Dr. Yusefka, a character the hunter encounters early in the story. Bloodborne begins when the hunter wakes up on the first floor of Dr. Yusefka's clinic after receiving his first blood sample.
Yusefka is the first non-playable character the hunter meets in Bloodborne; After the player is killed by the game's first enemy, he becomes a hunter by going to the Hunters Dream and returning from it with a gun. If the player climbs the stairs and returns to the clinic, he finds himself locked in it, but through the gap in the clinic we see a woman in white with whom we can talk. "Are you going hunting?" If so, I'm very sorry but I can not open this door. I am Yusufka. Patients in the clinic should not be exposed to infection. I know you are hunting to save our lives and our city, but I'm sorry. you're welcome. "That's the only thing I can do." Yusufka helps the hunter by donating the blood he has condensed. This blood has the ability to completely heal the hunter.
"This rare blood, the result of gradual and precise purification, seems to be the original blood specific to the clinic." The hunter can return to Yusufka at any time and receive more blood, but can only carry a small glass at a time. However, this situation changed with the death of Gascon's father. This time, when Hunter visits Yusefka, he is not given any blood. Instead, the doctor asks the hunter to take anyone he sees on his way to the clinic so that they can be treated. Has been voiced. Yousefka's voice actor is Jenny Fannel, but there is another fake doctor on the list of voice actors who has been voiced by Lucy Briggs-Owen. After this incident, Yusefka constantly asks for more people to be admitted to the clinic and ensures that they are well cared for. As a reward for the hunter, if he starts directing people to the clinic, Yusufka will give the player Blue Elixir.
The blue elixir in the game is described as: "Suspicious medicinal liquid used in strange experiments by high-ranking emirs of the Healing church." An item that a low-blooded prince has access to is largely strange and questionable. The truth of the matter is revealed only when the hunter finds the back of the clinic. Access to this entrance is possible by climbing a neighboring building that connects to the Forbidden Woods.
Here the results of Yusufka's research are revealed. All the non-playable characters that the hunter sent to the Yusufka Clinic have become creatures called celestials. Kin's blue relatives. If the hunter does not send anyone to the clinic, the player will find only one planet in the patient's room. At the time of his death, the planet left behind one of Yusufka's blood glasses, probably the glass left behind for the hunter to return. These are probably the remnants of the real Yusufkai that the player meets at the beginning of the game. As the hunter climbs the stairs to the upper part of the clinic, one of the two events embedded in this section will occur.
If the hunter goes to the upper floor of the clinic before the Blood Moon phase arrives, he is attacked by a fake Yusefka. He has a Threaded Cane and a Repeating Pistol in his hand, and if his health bar is reduced enough, he attacks the hunter with the item A Call Beyond. A Call Beyond is the Church's ultimate Healing tool.
"One of the hidden rituals of the church." Failed to communicate with the distant borders of the universe. The ritual failed to achieve its intended purpose, but instead created an exploding little star that is now a powerful part of the deaf weapon. "Sometimes, the failure of the mother is innovation." Fake Yousefka is one of four unplayable characters who use A Call Beyond. The other three include Mikolash, the Forgotten Madman, and Yuri, a member of the choir present at Birgenworth's mansion.
The cathedral has been set up at the Yusufka Clinic to continue its research, probably because with the widespread outbreak of the plague of demons, the Church is no longer a safe place to conduct its activities. By killing the fake Yusefka, he leaves a powerful edon Ode Writhe. Interestingly, the hunter can obtain a weaker version of Oedon Writhe by killing the nun's idols or the planets she becomes if the hunter sends her to the Yusufka clinic. This alone reinforces the fake Yusufka's relationship with the Church and the fact that he was a more important nun, but this is just one of two possible events at the Yusufka clinic.
If the hunter goes to the upper floor of the clinic after the arrival of the bloody moon, he will find him sitting on four legs on one of the operating tables. "God, I'm nauseous Have you ever felt that way? It is getting worse. I can see things I knew I was different. I'm not a monster I oh God, what a horrible feeling But, it proves that I am chosen. do not you see? How they roll by themselves, in my mind they roll by themselves right that is mesmerizing
Yusufka has begun the ascent process with enough time to complete her research. Killing him leaves an item that I believe is an orphan umbilical cord that was recovered by Kerr. But what was this research about? What has Kerr done? How did he do it? These questions lead us to the final subject of the present analysis: Abritis, the daughter of the universe.
