Ludwig, The Accursed was the founder of the Healing Church Workshop, and the first hunter of the Church. He is also known under his official title; Ludwig, The Holy Blade. Ludwig was the first of those affected by the old blood. His name has fallen into legend, and now adorns their holy blades. Ludwig was the first of many Healing Church hunters to come, many of whom were clerics. As it was, clerics transformed into the most hideous beasts.
While he was originally human, Ludwig was used in an unhallowed experimentation by The Healing Church. The exposure to the old blood transformed Ludwig into a grotesque and warped Beast, barely retaining some of his humanity as he is mostly consumed by animal instinct and madness. Regardless, Ludwig's service to the Healing Church paved the way for clerics of the Healing Church to become hunters to the point that many Yharnamites attribute modern hunters with the Church.
