London is the home of the London Rats: Halley, Chris, Joshua and Sharon who live in an abandoned house on Old Castle Street since their parents abandoned them. It is implied that they used to live with a lot of other children, but those ones were captured and taken away to the orphanage that is run by Jack and these other children were never heard of again.
Jack also lives in London, but further North in the residential district. It was in the main City of London that Jack first encountered a man calling himself Roger Bacon who was able to help him with his experiments. This was 3 years prior to the beginning of the game.
In 1913 Yuri arrives in London with Alice, Zhuzhen, Margarete and Keith searching for Cardinal Albert Simon. They were told by the late Father Doyle that Cardinal Albert Simon had moved from Italy to London and owns a mansion there.
When the party arrive, Zhuzhen and Keith check in at the inn while Yuri, Margarete and Alice search for information about Cardinal Simon. As they are searching they see Joshua being harassed by a man wearing all back who claims to be trying to take him to the orphanage. The party chase the man away and Margarete checks to see if Joshua is okay. They offer to walk him home when his older sister Chris arrives and thanks them for saving Joshua before taking him home herself.
As the party decide to ask around some more, Margarete realises her wallet is missing – Joshua must have stolen it. They go to the pub and find out that Joshua is a member of the London Rats who have a hideout nearby. Yuri, Margarete and Alice return to Zhuzhen and Keith to report the missing money and after being scolded search for the London Rats’ hideout which they find in an old abandoned house.
The party confront Joshua and Chris (who are now back with Sharon) about the wallet and they confess – though Chris says that it was only because they hadn’t eaten in 3 days. They return the wallet and Joshua gives Margarete a crucifix as way of apology. Alice asks them why they’re here all by themselves. The kids tell them that they’re afraid to be taken to the orphanage because nobody ever comes back. Sharon claims the kids taken there are turned into monsters. Just as soon as explanation is provided, their leader: Halley appears.
Halley tells the party they should have been more careful around Joshua, but thanks them for helping him. He agrees to helps them if he can. They explains that they’re looking for Cardinal Albert Simon. Halley doesn’t know of this person, but thinks that Old Man Carl next door might know – so the party accompany him there. Old Man Carl explains that Cardinal Simon has a mansion just North of the town in the residential district.
The party (still accompanied by Halley) go to the mansion to find it has now become Jack’s orphanage. They return but do not know they are being followed by the man in black who is now able to figure out where the London Rats hideout is. While the party are back at the inn talking to Keith and Zhuzhen, the man in black is able to abduct Chris, Joshua and Sharon and take them to the orphanage.
When Halley discovers that the other kids have been taken he gets angry and this makes the walls and floor shake. When he calms down he explains that this is his power and the reason his mother abandoned him. Yuri agrees to help Halley find the other kids and sends one of the girls back to tell Keith and Zhuzhen where they have gone.
After travelling to the orphanage, Halley and Yuri go to Calios Mental Hospital to find Halley’s mother. They return to London unsuccessful, she has been taken by Albert Simon to Nemeton Monastery. Yuri and Alice travel there and are able to take her from Albert Simon.
Koudelka and Halley return to the London Rats’ hideout where she is able to catch up on much rest. After resting for a little while, Halley is able to speak with his mother properly for the first time in 3 years. She tells him that he is beginning to look a lot like his father and she is very proud of him. Halley asks Koudelka if he can continue to travel with Yuri – as he wants to see this quest through to the end. She says yes – on one condition – he promises to come back. Halley promises to come back and tells Koudelka that when they come back, they can to together with the London Rats to America to seek Halley’s father.
Alice and Yuri come up to speak with Koudelka, where she thanks them both for saving her. Yuri is impressed that the voice in his head turned out to be such a beautiful woman, but asks why he must always get headaches. Koudelka tells him that is is because he is a Harmonixer – all the souls of all the monsters became afraid when they heard her voice, resulting in Yuri having a headache.
She tells Alice that she is proud of her, that due to all the danger she faces – the curse she is under – that she still persists. Alice says she couldn’t have done it without her companions. Koudelka wishes them the best of luck in the final encounter with Albert Simon and thanks them for coming to talk to her.
