The Darkbeast is a deadly monstrosity created by the bloodborne pathogen ravaging the town of Yharnam known as the Scourge of the Beast. It appears to be ancient, and this may mean it is the origin of the pathogen outbreak itself... Or perhaps it is a descendant of the plague-ridden city like the others.
Those afflicted with the Scourge of the Beast sooner or later transform into unspeakable abominations, creatures without familiar shape or form. After roaming the streets night after night to rid the streets of beasts, even the denizens themselves eventually take on a crazed and demented look. Peer deep into their clouded eyes and you will find it impossible to tell the difference between hunter and beast any longer.
The long, sinuous body of this beast is comprised almost entirely of bones. It attacks its victims with jerky, erratic movements, while discharging electrical currents through its twisted, ancient body. With its bony form and a wrinkle-covered skull, people say this beast must be very old, very ancient.
