Return to Shadow Hearts: Covenant Locations


Florence is a level in Shadow Hearts: Covenant. It is where Roger Bacon was being held by Sapientes Gladio. It is where the party first meet Lucia.

Plot Significance

After Roger is kidnapped from his home in Wales, he is brought to Florence by Lenny. He is eventually moved elsewhere.

The party travel to Florence to speak with Carla to see if she knows anything about Sapientes Gladio. They watch a dance by Lucia, who is employed by Carla and afterwards request to speak with Carla. Carla says there’s a waiting list, but after Yuri asks nicely, she agrees to help them if they help her. She asks them to retrieve a flower for her, and instructs Lucia to show them the location of the flower.

After Lucia and the party return from Manmariana Island, Carla explains that she assumed they were from Sapientes Gladio so send them with Lucia to be killed, however they managed to prove by protecting Lucia that they were not a part of the secret society. Carla gives the party details as to the location of their headquarters where they then go.

The party reconvene in Florence after being unable to find Roger in the HQ.
