Return to Shadow Hearts Locations


Dalian is a level in Shadow Hearts. It is under the curse of Li Li. Here the party reunite with Zhuzhen.

Plot Significance

Not long ago, Li Li – a young girl in Dalian lost her father to a fishing accident. The events that followed caused her to take her own life, but now her spirit haunts the town. The town spiritualist, Sea Mother sends for Zhuzhen to help rid the town of this curse which has killed 10 people so far.

Coincidentally, the plane that Margarete found in Fengtian fails to keep flying, and the party crash land in Dalian.

The party find an Inn to stay in, and come across Sea Mother praying for a man named Yen Yen who is dying of Li Li’s curse. When the party next go outside, they encounter Li Li’s ghost who sets a curse on Alice. Sea Mother then brings the party inside the tavern and tells the story of Li Li.

It turns out that the Blue Dragon God, worshipped by the people of Dalian has been sealed away by Dehuai and this causes the appearence of monsters in the village, and is the reason Dalian is haunted by Li Li. Through the eradication of Wind Yamaraja ceases these appearences.

Enemies Encountered

Yamaraja: Wind (boss)

Origin & Trivia

Dalian is a rather large town in China about a third of the way (if travelling by air and sea) between Fengtian and Shanghai. In fact, if Margarete’s plane had stayed in the air for a little longer, but given out between Dalian and Shanghai, the party probably would have been stranded at sea as there is nearly 1,000km of sea between them (this is the most direct route – if Margarete wanted to go over land, it would have taken much longer).
