Return to Shadow Hearts: Covenant Locations

Le Havre

Le Havre is a level in Shadow Hearts: Covenant. It is a coastal town that the party travel to in the hopes of getting a boat to the UK without being intercepted by the
German Army. Le Havre is where the party first encounter Joachim Valentine.

Plot Significance

Yuri has suggested travelling to Wales to ask Roger Bacon to seek advice about the cursae of the Holy Mistletoe. Karin suggested travelling to Le Havre to get a boat, as is it not yet overrun with German Soldiers.

In Le Havre, they speak to the boat captain, and he says that they need money in order to sail to Southampton and suggests they speak to The Mayor about joining the brigade of vigilantes that patrols the town at night, as Le Havre has a problem with a bandit at night time.

The party decide that this is the best course of action for now, is to patrol with the vigilantes. They are assigned the South side of town, which is home to a Tavern called Mouette de Mer (French for Seagull), but it is very quiet. They hear shouting coming from the North side of town. The vigilantes are being attacked by the Bandit – Grand Papillon. Grand Papillon claims to be fighting for justice, truth and honour, and attacks the party. They are able to force him to retreat, however he turns into a Golden Bat before doing so. Yuri is convinced they have met before.

After successfully scare Grand Papillon away, the Mayor asks for one further task from the party. They meet him near the tavern in the morning, and the Mayor gives them some money in return for capturing Grand Papillon who is currently outside the tavern, playing with some children. The party take the money, but debate among themselves whether or not to agree to the mayor’s task – if some children are playing with Grand Papillon, is he really a bandit?

Yuri decides to approach him to speak with him. Inside the tavern, the two children are hiding behind Grand Papillon, shouting at Yuri that Joachim (Grand Papillon) isn’t a thief or a bandit. Granny Lot, who owns the tavern, appears and tells Yuri that he has been tricked by the Mayor. Joachim is trying to protect the tavern from the vigilante group, who are trying to overthrow it for some treasure buried underneath. Granny Lot was told recently that there is a treasure buried under the store, but she isn’t sure it even exists. Even so, the Mayor has been bullying her to give up the store.

Gepetto decides that they should return the money to the Mayor, and they attempt to do so. However, the mayor is unhappy with their decision and sends some thugs to attack them. The party dispatches the thugs quickly, and returns to the tavern only to find the children – Yuma and John – have been kidnapped and taken to the Wine Cellar as hostages, in exchange for the deed to the tavern.

Joachim joins the party to help rescue the children.
