Return to Shadow Hearts: Covenant Locations


Paris is a level in Shadow Hearts: Covenant. The party travel to Gepetto‘s apartment in Paris to decide on further actions.

Plot Significance

The party decide to travel to Gepetto’s apartment in Paris as the German Army have taken the villagers of Domremy and may well come for them too. They need to think of a plan. When they reach Paris, Gepetto gives Karin some of Cornelia‘s old clothes, and while she is changing, tries to research Sapientes Gladio and the Holy Mistletoe.

Gepetto is able to find that the Holy Mistletoe is an artefact used to try and guide the soul, but is unsure what kind of effect it would have on Yuri, who seems unconcerned. After Karin has changed, Yuri suggests travelling to Wales to find Roger Bacon. Karin suggests they get a boat from Le Havre, but first they must find a way there.

Before they can make a plan, they are chased out of Gepetto’s apartment by Claw Soldiers. They flee through some train tunnels and into a nearby bar, where Gepetto’s friend Louis works. Louis suggests they find Dr. Gautier if they want to know more about train tunnels that lead out of Paris.

The party travel to the Champ Élyeés where Dr. Gautier is staying. Before going to see them, Gepetto picks up a dress he commissioned from Pierre Magimel for Cornelia. Pierre and his brother Gerard run a travelling item shop.

In the hotel, they meet with Dr. Gautier who agrees to give them information on how to get out of Paris unnoticed. He says that there is an old subway tunnel near the Champs Éyleés station they could use to get to Le Havre. He writes them permission from the engineer working in the area.

The party travel to the tunnel, but they are followed by Lenny. They travel through the tunnel for a while, where Yuri meets The Ring Soul who speaks briefly to him and Karin about destiny before disappearing.

Lenny manages to catch the party in a mine cart, however they are on separate tracks and Lenny is separated from the party, who go on to encounter Veronica, who summons some monsters to battle them. Once the monsters are defeated, she vanishes.
