After taking Mia back to the Home Base, the party continues to search for the source for blood beads by following the bloodveins from a bloodspring.
After defeating the Invading Executioner back at the Howling Pit, the team takes Mia back to the Home Base. She then joins the party and can be chosen as your companion that you can bring during your exploration.

Locating the Cathedral
In order to find the cathedral, teleport to the Park Ruins mistle at the Ruined City Center. You'll notice that there is a ladder that you can climb down, simply head down and walk towards the statue of an angel that's shown above - interact with it and the ladder next to it will descend.
Now, climb up the ladder and a cutscene will begin once you approach the bloodspring - after the cutscene, simply head inside the cave and go through the long path until you reach another ladder.
Continue through the path after acquiring the items where you'll now find yourself outside the cathedral.
Head straight until you reach the Cathedral of the Sacred Blood Entrance Mistle and activate it.
Now, start your exploration by heading down the stairs. You'll find an open arena and an Armored Female Lost in the middle of the arena - kill it and pick up the item it dropped which is 1x Queen Steel.
Continue going straight, then make a left at the end, then right, you'll encounter another enemy patrolling, a Sword-wielding Lost.
Go straight after killing it and make a right at the end, you'll find another arena-looking room. The Trial of Blood will then commence and enemies will spawn from behind. You'll face a group of Female Axe-wielding a Stone-Crusher wielding a heavy axe and Assassin Lost for a total of 7 waves - surviving the onslaught and killing the enemies rewards you with 1x Loss Crystal (S), you can also obtain various items such as 1x Queen Steel and 1x Loss Shard (M) that are dropped by the enemy.
After the trial, head back to where you entered the arena and this time, go straight, up the stairs at the end, then a left at the end. You should find another Armored Female Lost patrolling the gazebo-looking structure ahead - kill it and continue through the path.
Next, you'll want to make right and then left until you reach yet another open arena that is being guarded by another Armored Female Lost. Kill it, climb down the ladder that's on the right side of the arena, then drop down onto the surface below - you'll find 1x Queen Steel at the edge.
Kill the enemies and you'll find a chest containing 1x Rubellite Piercer +4 - continue your exploration and head outside the other exit after acquiring the weapon.
Drop down to the bottom and purify the rotten mistle next to the corpse of a Lost to map the surrounding area.
After that's done, head inside the tower and go all the way to the top, you'll find 1x Ichor Concentrate at the side - there's also a lever by the door, you can pull it to unlock a shortcut that will take you back to the Mistle of the cathedral entrance.
Next, go through the exit that's in front and make a right at the first intersection, you'll find another chest containing 1x Impulse Anchor +4. Continue going straight until you reach a dead-end and then drop down to the surface that's on your right - you'll find 1x Curious Novelty that you can pick up once your drop.
The doors ahead are locked, so near the mistle, you'll find a path that you can drop down to - you'll find 1x Awake MJ212 on the ground.
Next, go the opposite side and climb up the ladder. You'll find yourself in a tower that has a lever, pull it to open the locked door that's on your left.
Head back down and proceed into the unlocked room, you'll find another Armored Female Lost by the stairs and another at the top that is guarding an item, kill it and pick up 1x Queen Steel. Afterwards, continue through the path until you find yourself inside an indoor arena with 2 more Armored Female Lost - kill the enemies to acquire Haze and some items it may drop.
Once that's done, head out the other exit and drop down below the surface. You should find 1x Loss Shard (M) that you can pick up.
Next, head inside the room where you'll fight another Armored Female Lost, kill it and pull the lever to unlock the door that's in front of you - this unlocks the other door that was locked earlier near the Mistle. From here, head back to the exit you came through and drop down onto the surface that's on the left side - you'll find 1x Queen Steel on the ground that you can pick up.
Next, proceed into the room where you'll fight a Stone-Crusher, kill it and pick up the vestige that's nearby: Isis Vestige Part C. Afterwards, go out the other exit and climb up the ladder until you reach the top.
You should now find yourself at the top of which seems to be an open area and another Stone-Crusher that is blocking your path, kill it then proceed further and fight the next enemy, an Armored Female Lost.
Once that's done, head over to the next path that's on the left side until you reach the end - you'll find 1x Classic Camera that's on the side.
After activating the Mistle and have made further preparations, continue towards the path and then make a right. You should find yourself in a tower looking room with a couple of flight of stairs leading down. Head down, and then make a left. You will see a black knight kneeling in the center of the room, & upon killing it you will receive a Regen Activation Factor. Now turn back around & go straight into the tower ahead.
You'll find yourself inside another room where an Armored Female Lost is standing next to a pile of boxes. Kill it then destroy the boxes to find 1x Mark of Honor - head up the stairs and you'll encounter another Armored Female Lost.
Now, head outside, make a right, then left until you reach a dead-end, and follow the path ahead. You should find yourself on the other side of the cathedral where you'll see a rotten mistle across a broken path.
Since you can't cross, go left, straight, then right until you reach another room - head inside and go up the stairs.
Next, if you go right, you'll find 1x Queen Steel by the edge of the stairs. Pick it up and head in the opposite direction.
Continue following the path then make a left and then a right, you should find the lever that will unlock a shortcut that will take you back to the path you took earlier.
Now, go back from where you came from and drop down onto the ledge that's on your right. From where you dropped, go straight, make a left and follow the path. You should find yourself inside a tower, kill the Armored Female Lost on the first floor, then head up the stairs where you'll find an Axe-wielding Lost guarding an item. Kill it then pick up 1x Drain Activator - you should also notice that there is a ladder above, you'll need to find the switch to pull the ladder down.
After obtaining the item, head back down and go through the other exit where you'll see another Armored Female Lost patrolling the area. Kill the enemy then climb down the stairs - you'll find a rotten mistle that you can purify to map the area and 1x Mobility Enhancer that's on the edge.
Next, you'll need to find the lever that will cause the ladder in the tower room to drop. To find the lever, retrace your steps back to the path where you found the tower and you'll have to drop down twice onto the path below.
Eventually, the path you'll take will lead you into another room that has a lever that unlocks the door next to it. And the exit opposite of the lever is where you'll find the rotten Mistle that you couldn't get to earlier. As you approach the Mistle, a Mutated Lost will climb up to your left. Kill it, purify the rotten Mistle, pick up 1x Anti-Inhibit next to it, then drop down onto the ledge where the Lost was climbing earlier.
You should now find a room with two levers, pull the one in the middle to lower the ladder in the tower then pull the other lever to unlock the door next to it. From here, make your way back to the tower and climb up the ladder to reach the top - you can easily reach the tower by heading out the unlocked door, make a left then drop down at the end. You'll find yourself back to the rotten mistle near the corpse of a Lost that you purified earlier, then climb up the ladder to reach the tower.
Upon reaching the top, follow the path and you'll find the another Mistle that you can activate - use it to rest and make further upgrades or preparations.
After activating the Mistle, you'll notice that there's a door with wings ahead of you that's locked, ignore that for now and head towards the path where a Armored Female Lost is patrolling - the door ahead of the enemy is also locked, so after you kill the enemy, there's a ledge on the right side of the path that you can drop down to.
Follow the path leading to another tower and head up the stairs. There's a ladder at the top, a Stone-Crusher wielding an axe ahead and another path to your left.
First, go left, you'll come across another path where you'll encounter 2x Sword-wielding Lost and a Armored Female Lost that's guarding a lever, pull the lever and the door below you will open - you'll find yourself back at the tower Mistle.
Next, make your way towards the unlocked path then make a right. You'll notice that there's a ladder that leads to a lever that unlocks a shortcut, you can drop down from the ledge but you'll take some damage from the impact since it's too high - once you've dropped down, climb up the ladder and pull the lever to unlock the door next to it, this serves as a shortcut for your exploration.
Now, continue your exploration and go straight towards the patrolling Armored Female Lost, kill it then make a left towards a dried-up bloodspring. You'll find an item next to it that you can pick up, but as soon as you approach it, 4x Assassin Lost will ambush you - after killing the enemies pick up 1x Vivifier from the bloodspring.
After acquiring the item, drop down the nearby ledge that's on your right and follow the path ahead. There will be 2x Female Spiked Lost along the way - simply go straight then drop down again from the ledge that's on your right.
Follow the path through the towers until you reach the top where you'll find a Stone-Crusher blocking the path ahead - kill the enemy and proceed forward into another tower that leads down towards 2 levers that unlocks the doors.
The lever to your left unlocks a shortcut that can take you back to the Mistle while the opposite lever unlocks a new room.
Inside the new room, you'll have to fight 2x Armored Female Lost if you step inside. You can deal with them one at a time by heading back for now.
Head back up from the tower that you came from and drop down from the ledge that's on the left side of the tower exit
Go through the short path, climb up the ladder and you'll see a lever to your right that unlocks the door below you. Before you head down, turn around and climb up the ladder that's ahead of you. You can find 1x Awake MJ212 at the top- now, don't jump down from the switch, but instead, go around and you'll find a ladder that you can kick down to open up a shortcut you can take if needed. Be careful, as an Armored Female Lost stands guard at this ladder. It is one of the two you would have faced had you entered the circular room from before. Defeat it, then drop down and defeat the one standing in the room you saw earlier. (This one, however, has an extremely small positioning window for backstab attacks. Unless you know exactly where to stand, the chances of landing it are rather slim.)
Continue forward through the door that you unlocked and you'll now encounter a boss, the Argent Wolf Berserker, that you'll have to defeat in order to proceed further.
Boss: Argent Wolf Berserker
After the battle walk up to the unlocked section where you'll find a "special vestige" - interact with it and you'll be teleported to the next area Memories of Player.

After absorbing the "special vestige", you recovered a memory where you were dispatched on a mission that did not end quite well. Your journey continues as you awaken back at the cathedral to find the source.

You'll find a chest at the top containing 1x Nagimukuro +4. A Stone-Crusher will ambush you from above as you open the chest, so be prepared to kill it - after dealing with the enemy, head back down and go through the room where you'll find another Armored Female Lost patrolling the area.
Trial of Blood
From the tower, climb down the ladder, head towards the room ahead and the trial of blood will start once you step inside - you'll be surrounded by enemies from both sides so it's recommended that you have a companion with you if you want to complete the trial.
You'll face a total of 6 waves of Stone-Crusher, Female Spiked Lost, Assassin Lost - surviving the onslaught and killing the last enemy rewards you with 1x Loss Crystal (S) - you can also find 1x Pure Blood inside the other room.
Into the Cathedral
After the trial, head back up the ladder and the stairs until you reach the top of the tower.
You'll find yourself in another room where an Armored Female Lost is guarding the area - kill it then go to the left side exit and climb down the ladder.
Enter the bottom tower and climb up the ladder first until you reach the top.
Upon reaching the bottom, you'll come across a locked door - simply pull the lever next to it to unlock the door.
Eventually, you'll find yourself at another tower where you'll find a vestige.
To get this vestige, go back and head up the stairs that will take you to the top of the tower, you should find a Female Spiked Lost and a Armored Female Lost at the top - at the other side, you'll encounter a Stone-Crusher and another Armored Female Lost.
Next, you'll want to head back to where you dropped from to get to the vestige and head up the stairs to reach the top tower and find an opening that you can drop onto.
You'll find a Rotten Mistle under the stairs of the tower - after purifying it, head up the stairs to reach the top of the tower.
The path will lead you to another Miste: Inner Tower - activate it to rest and to map the surrounding area.
Once the Mistle is activated, head towards the exit to your right and climb up the ladder.
You'll find a locked door that requires the Shoddy Key to open, before you open the door, make sure you've kicked the other ladder down to open up a shortcut. Since you've already acquired it earlier, you can go on ahead and pull the lever - there will be 2x Armored Female Lost at the other side.
After you've killed the enemies, go on ahead and jump down the next path below where an Assassin Lost will try to ambush you. Then jump down again onto the path below where you can pick up 1x Awake MJ212 next to a Lost corpse.
From where the corpse is, make a right towards the other tower where you'll find another Rotten Mistle that you can purify to map the surrounding area.
Next, climb down the ladder and follow the path where you'll find a chest containing the Ornate Key - with the key in hand, you can go back and unlock the door.
Now, go back and try to kill the Rotten Armored Female Lost you saw earlier to further map the surrounding area and make sure you destroy the boxes that are behind the enemy to find the Isis Vestige Part A - you can now go back to the locked door that requires the Ornate Key, either drop down the bottom for a shortcut and survive the trial of the blood or use the long way by taking the same path that you took earlier until you reach the locked door.
To identify the area that you need to reach, the path leading to the locked door will have bodies of the Lost on the ground.
Follow the path and you'll find the Cathedral Front Mistle that you can activate to rest and to map the surrounding area - congratulations! You've finally made it out of the maze!
After you've activated the mistle and made preparations, head towards the front of the cathedral and a cutscene will trigger where you'll find a woman named Leda who looks like Io. She'll provide you with a vestige, Isis Vestige Part D.
Before heading through the path ahead, speak to Leda to restore the Isis Vestige I and Isis Vestige III - after you've restored the vestiges, approach the shielded door where a boss awaits and choose "Yes" if you are prepared.
Successor of the Ribcage
Upon entering the room, you'll now find yourself inside the crypt of the cathedral's guardian, the Successor of the Ribcage.

A cutscene then triggers after killing the boss and you'll be ported into a memory where you'll see Aurora. You'll also acquire Isis Vestige IV which will allow you to use Aurora's Blood Code, Isis after the cutscene.
Once you've regained control of your character, proceed to the door that has wings, unlock it, and head to the bottom of the crypt where you'll find the "source" - after the cutscene make sure to approach the source to obtain 1x Pure Blood.
