Adella Information

A nun of the Healing Church, kidnapped from outside the Cathedral Ward and taken to Yahar-Gul by the sack-toting beasts known as Snatchers on the night of the Hunt.


  • Hypogean Gaol
  • If the Hunter wishes to meet Adella, they must get themselves kidnapped and taken to Hypogean Gaol themselves. Snatchers will spawn after killing the Blood-starved Beast.
  • Just outside the cell where the Hunter wakes up, to the right, there is a small nook where Adella is crying and begging not to be taken. The beasts captured many girls along with her, but none of them remain: only their distant, unending moans.
  • Adella is inconsolable unless the Hunter speaks to her while wearing a chestpiece representing the Healing Church, such as the White or Black Church Set, Gascoigne's Set, Choir Set, Tomb Prospector Set or the Executioner Garb. If this is done, she will calm down, offer some lore, and ask if there is any place safe where she can go. The hunter can then choose to send her to the Cathedral Ward or Iosefka's Clinic (after speaking to the resident NPCs of those two areas).


  • If sent to the Oedon Chapel:
    • She teaches the Church Bow (Female) gesture, and offers vials of Adella's Blood, which heal more than normal blood vials and have an additional replenishment property, continuing to heal over time. You cannot accept Adella's blood if you already have Arianna's, simply use Arianna's blood if you wish to receive Adella's.
    • Adella will kill Arianna if you choose the Arianna's tainted blood over her own out of jealousy. (The trigger for this event is not the fight with Rom, the Vacuous Spider, Confirmed that she killed Arianna with last boss being Vicar Amelia, once you accept Arianna's blood more than 3 times, she will kill her on next load in.)
    • Eventually, after the moon turns red and if she killed Arianna because you accepted Arianna's Blood, she'll be found outside the church and turns against the hunter out of her insanity.

  • If sent to Iosefka's Clinic:
    • She will be turned into a Celestial Mob, and Iosefka will reward you with 1 insight and 2 Numbing Mist.
    • If you enter the clinic and kill the blue creature standing in the main hallway with folded hands, it will drop the Oedon Writhe rune. It isn't hostile to Hunter; Hunter will have to attack it.

  • If you choose to withhold information:
    • After you warp away from the area she will leave the prison. She can later be found dead, on a staircase up the street of Yahar'Gul, near a pack of dogs. The Oedon Writhe rune can be found on her corpse.

  • "The healing church nuns are chosen for their merit as vessels for blood, and groomed as Blood Saints. The mere chance of being treated with their blood lends legitimacy to the Healing Church and communion." -Blood of Adella

Other Notes:

  1. Is unavailable anytime after the paleblood moon occurs. ( Before the one reborn boss fight )
  2. She is known to kill other rescued NPCs, such as Arianna, if you accept Arianna's blood more than 3 times while Adella is in the church, just kill the nun after she gives you the gesture to be safe because glitches have been reported with this NPC, she no longer contributes and eventually goes mad and attacks the hunter for being "impure" anyways.
  3. When ever you talk to Arianna while Adella is also in the Chapel Adella will look over to the two of you talking.
  4. Adella may suddenly disappear from Oedon Chapel after sending her there. It is currently unknown why this can happen.
  5. Requires healing church clothes to send to Oedon chapel but if you sell, do not fear Gascoigne clothes also work
  6. Adella will disappear from the game entirely after killing Rom, therefore missing out on a potential caryll rune and gesture. Make sure to talk to her/kill her BEFORE killing Rom.
