Another batch of Code Vein screenshots is here! Not like the previous one, though, the screenshots now detail about Blood Tears, Blood Tear Spring, Blood Code, and two more characters, Rui and Yakumo. Check all of them here now!
Blood Tears & Blood Tears Spring
In this universe, a Revenant needs to regularly drink human blood to maintain their humanity. Losing their humanity means they’ll warp into the Lost. Blood Tears, a mysterious fruit, contains liquid that can fill Revenant’s hunger for blood, preventing them turning into Lost.They grow on plants called Blood Tear Springs. However, it becomes harder to obtain Blood Tears as the plant is damaged by miasma. The protagonist is able to restore the Blood Tear Springs to life by dripping their blood on the husks.
Blood Codes act similarly to a job system. They become usable after Blood Crystals, which are crystallized memories, are obtained and repaired. When the protagonist touches a Blood Crystal, he is able to see memories of the person whose the memory belonged to.
Rui is a researcher studying Blood Tears in order to save Revenants from the hunger for human blood. He is looking for the “Fountainhead”, the origin of the Blood Tear Springs, in order to look for enough Blood Tears for powerless people as well. The wheel of fate starts to turn when Rui meets the protagonist, who has the power to restore the Springs. He asks to help the protagonist and joins them as a companion in their travels. Rui is a righteous person, and cannot leave people in trouble alone. He is very experienced in dealing with Lost with his speedy one-handed sword attacks and his Blood Veil, “Ogre”.
Yakumo is a former mercenary turned Revenant. When he first awakens as a Revenant, he nearly succumbs to the hunger and turns into a Lost, but is saved by Rui and the protagonist. He then joins you on the journey. While he is very wary around unfamiliar people, once he recognizes the protagonist as an friend, he becomes a staunch ally. He fights with a two-handed sword and a close range Blood Veil, “Hounds”.
As Revenants do not feel hungry so long as they feed on blood, eating is actually unnecessary for them, but Yakumo believes that there is meaning in eating normal food. Perhaps it has to do with some forgotten memory from before becoming a Revenant, but he argues that this is what makes them “human-like”. He carries a picture of his close friends from his mercenary days, but the fate of his friends is unknown.
