Fengtian

Fengtian is a level in Shadow Hearts. It is where Yuri and Alice first meet Margarete.

Plot Significance

After walking from Zhaoyang Village all night, Yuri and Alice arrive in Fengtian.

Alice is asleep, and A puppy approaches Yuri. He sends it off as Alice is waking up.

Alice tells Yuri about her nightmares about a woman crying and alone in a hospital. Yuri brushes it off.

They head to a pub in the town. While inside, an alluring spy, known as “Malkovitch” is on the roof, planning to set off two bombs. One in Fengtian, and one on the South Manchurian Railway in hopes of delaying the Japanese army.

While in the pub, a transmission is heard on the radio saying that the Japanese army are looking to take hold of a caucasian female who has set a bomb in Fengtian.

This being heard Yuri and Alice come out of the pub, when a bomb explodes – knocking them down and alerting the Japanese Army. They mistake Yuri and Alice for terrorists (as Alice matches the description given for the spy who set the bomb). They see said spy climbing down into the sewers and decide to follow her.

In the sewers, Yuri and Alice are unable to find their way out and encounter the spy who introduces herself as Margarete. While trying to find their way out, they encounter the puppy from earlier.

The party find a man-hole cover blocked with a Taoist seal, similar to that in Zhaoyang Village. Margarete explains that it probably wasn’t set by the Japanese Army, so they would need to find the guardian of the seal and defeat it.

A second bomb goes off, and this creates a hole in a wall where Yuri finds a Jewel known as the “Sealing Stone”. This is able to fit into the seal, and summon the guardian. Once it is defeated, the party are able to escape to a plane hanger.

They run towards the hanger, where the Japanese Army are waiting for them. They defeat the Japanese, and make their way towards a plane which blows up.

It is revealed that the puppy that has been following them is actually controlled by Dehuai. He has been following them since the incident in Zhaoyang. The puppy then transforms into a monster which the party defeat in order to be rid of Dehuai.

As Margarete looks for another plane, it becomes obvious to Yuri and Alice that Dehuai is after Alice for reasons yet unknown.

Margarete finds them an old plane which they can fly towards Shaghai with. Lt. Col. Kawashima appears with more of the Japanese Army in tow and announces that she will be going to Dalian.

  • Origin & Trivia

    Fengtian is the first place where the player encounters the Lottery Members and the Pedometer Sales Man.

    In reality, Fengtian is over 3000km from Zhaoyang. If Yuri and Alice were to walk that distance, it would take 1 or 2 months rather than a night.

    Margarete placing a bomb on the South Manchurian Railway is a reference to the Mukden Incident which happened in 1931. The incident involved Japanese soldiers placing a bomb on the South Manchurian Railway in Mukden (which is in or near Fengtian). This was a Japanese ploy to increase Japanese Military presence in China.
