Manmariana Island

Manmariana Island is a level in Shadow Hearts: Covenant. It is the location of a flower that Carla has requested the party fetch for her.

Plot Significance

Manmariana Island is an island with a mansion that is owned by Carla. Carla raised Lucia on Manmariana Island until they eventually moved to Florence. Carla and Lucia are frequently approached by members of Sapientes Gladio and Carla instructs Lucia to take them to Manmariana Island to have André eat them. When the party meet with Carla and ask for her help, she says she will help them if they find a flower located on Manmariana Island – a hint to Lucia that she wants them killed.

Lucia brings the party to Manmariana Island, where she is trapped in a cage. They manage to free her, but there are other problems in the manor – a hoard of monsters, and puzzles to prevent them from moving forward. Lucia deliberates in helping them. For example there is a door that cannot be opened unless it is by someone with AB blood (in this case, Gepetto is able to open the door) and several doors that cannot be opened without keys in the shape of tiles with engravings of the zodiac on them.

Once the party make their way through the mansion to the greenhouse garden at the back, Lucia releases André with the intention of letting him eat them. However, André doesn’t recognise Lucia and tries to eat her instead. The party agree to help her and fight him until he can no longer do battle and is able to be restrained again.

Lucia explains that there was no flower and why she had taken them there – now she believed they weren’t a part of Sapients Gladio and she guides them off the island.
