The Blood-Starved Beast, also known as the Thirsty Beast, is a deformed, quadrupedal creature whose skin is peeled off and hanging from its back. Much like the Cleric Beast, it also has a malnourished, skeletal appearance. Although it may look like a weak creature, at first sight, its erratic and nimble movements make it a formidable foe for hunters. It is suggested that the Blood-Starved beast was a person receiving blood healing as a part of rituals performed by Healing Church members in Old Yharnam in order to learn more about the Great Ones and the effects of blood healing.
