    I never knew there was any controversy. I always thought Yulia was his katana by what he says. I wouldn't think that anyone in Lordran could have kept a cute cuddly little pet alive. I don't think that his "stroking" of a bucket is evidence that Yulia is the bucket or in the bucket. If he muttered "Yulia... whilst stroking his bucket, that would be a pretty decent link. But his dialogue seems to me to be indicative that Yulia is his sword. Also, naming weapons is quite common (Excalibur, Masamune, Gugnir, Ole Betsy, Sting, Glamdring, etc). Even today, many soldiers in armed forces across the world name their guns.

    Here's the relevant lines of dialogue for Yulia:

    I trade for souls, everything is for sale.

    I've got Yulia... and nobody pelts me with stones anymore.
    Ah, this one? Ain't she lovely?
    Her name is Yulia. She's plumb in love with me.

    You'd never leave my side , now would you, Yulia?

    Ah, you can forget it. I'm all that she needs.
    Careful, she'll bit your little fingers off!
    Be kind, Yulia, be kind!

    Attacking: pulls weapon from right hand.

    You've gone mad, have you!?
    I'll teach you! You lousy rat!
    Yulia! Yulia!
    Why... me... Little Yulia...


    OK: So we know:
    1) He has Yulia, and no one pelts him with stones anymore. I doubt this is because he has a bucket.
    2)
    Ah, this one? Ain't she lovely?
    Her name is Yulia. She's plumb in love with me.
    You'd never leave my side , now would you, Yulia?
    Ah, you can forget it. I'm all that she needs.
    Careful, she'll bit your little fingers off!

    So, the player character is interested in "Yulia" and it's one of many (one of many pets? Buckets? Weapons seems by far the correct one).
    The character wants it (Ah, you can forget it.) and this merchant that sells everything won't sell that.
    And that Yulia can bite your little fingers off.

    It's quite obvious it's the Katana.

    Actually, japanese swords like the katanas CAN bite. When we say a sword can bite the fingers is that, in order to put the sword back to the sheath we need to use one of the fingers as a guide-line. If you are not well-versed in swords you can have you finger bitten between the sword blade and the sheath.

    I know that because I'm red-belt in Ninjutsu and we use the expression "bite" for that kind of injure made by a sword. (and I also have a Wakizashi and a Ninjato at home)

    Western terminology also refers to swords as "biting" occasionally. It's a turn of phrase.

    I think Yulia was his wife or loved one, who went Hollow, he took her Souls and infused them into the katana to reinforce it. Similar to how you get souls from random enemies, and then take the same souls and use them as currency as well as to strengthen armaments. Because Yulia would have had a normal soul, the weapon looks normal to most people. Similar to how the knight you meet in the beginning of the game in the Asylum kills himself and because you are nearby, you absorb the souls automatically (you probably don't even remember what you used that portion of souls to reinforce because it was so low).

    Pff... Yulia is the Undead Merchant's personal Bubble Maker shaped like the chinese Luck cat, Maneki-nico. But due to copyright infringement issues between America and China, they had to change the Kitty into a bucket and not have the floating bubbles in the area. Shame really... I like bubbles...

    Maybe it's the mop. There is a mop next to the bucket. (o.k. I'll get me coat).

    I always thought Yulia was just a name given to his katana. It kind of makes me think of the Magic Sword Makoto from DeS. Makoto is a person's name, but it is given to a weapon...

    Those are my thoughts about it anyway.
