Southampton is a level in Shadow Hearts: Covenant. It is where Kato is encountered for the first time in Shadow Hearts: Covenant.

Plot Significance

The party travel to Southampton from Le Havre in order to continue on to Wales. However, the road to Cardiff has been blocked by a landslide, due to a large storm. The party take refuge in the Hope and Anchor inn.

In the inn, there is a bar fight, but it is put to a stop by Kato who is also staying nearby. Kato and Yuri are surprised to see each other again, they last spoke over a year ago in Shanghai. Yuri discovers that Kato has been promoted to Special Agent and now works as a diplomat. Kato was on his way to London but was also prevented from continuing due to the storm.

A local tells Yuri and the party a way to reach Wales, and that is through the Rhondda Mine. Karin is concerned that it is haunted and worried about attacks from monsters, however Gepetto argues that it is the quickest want to get to Nemeton Monastery.

Joachim and Blanca retire to bed. Karin and Gepetto stay up drinking together, and fall asleep at the bar. Yuri goes to catch up with Kato.

It has been over a year since they have spoken. Yuri explains about how he lost Alice, and remembers that Kato lost Lt. Col. Kawashima. Yuri tells Kato about his encounter with Sapientes Gladio and the curse of the Holy Mistletoe. Kato appears to know nothing about them, but promises Yuri that he will keep an ear out.

Before leaving for the mines, the next day, the party visit a Wrestling Ring that has been set up by The Great Gama. Joachim greets him with enthusiasm, as the Great Gama is his wrestling teacher. He challenges his teacher to a match, but is defeated quickly, as he has much still to learn.
