Opening Cutscene: Blood Minister:
"Oh yes… Paleblood. Heh. Well you've come to the right place.
Yharnam is the home of blood ministration, you need only unravel its mystery. But where's an outsider like yourself to begin? Easy, with a bit of Yharnam blood of your own.
But first… you need a contract.
Good, all signed and sealed. Now let's begin the transfusion. Oh don't you worry, whatever happens you may think it all a mere bad dream."
Bandage worn upon awakening to the nightmare of blood

Gilbert dialogue: Upon speaking with him (Second time)
"Paleblood, you say? Hmm… Never heard of it. But if it's blood you're interested in, you should try the Healing Church.
