|Behind the Scenes|
The Hunter Mobs are a deadly mutation of mankind created by the bloodborne pathogen ravaging the town of Yharnam known as the Scourge of the Beast. However, as a whole they do not realize they have even been infected yet. Due to the infestation of the scourge, this is what the mob that has risen for the beast hunt have become.
The fever-like urge to hunt remains, but they themselves have already been infested with the scourge of the beast. Unaware of this fact, they continue to search for prey to hunt and kill. Perhaps through their murky eyes, humans are seen as the true beasts. Within the swarming hunter mobs, there are also a few elderly men in wheelchairs that have been spotted from time to time. Elderly men, especially rich elderly men in wheelchairs, are common in Yharnam, and many of them continue to carry guns for self-defense.
Those afflicted with the Scourge of the Beast will sooner or later transform into unspeakable abominations, creatures without familiar shape or form such as the Cleric Beast or Darkbeast. 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.
