Prague

Prague is the first location in the Europe half of Shadow Hearts. Alice and Zhuzhen travel there after the events in Kuihai Tower

Plot Significance

5 months after the events at Kuihai Tower, Alice and Zuzhen travel to Prague and offer their services as exorcists. They hope they are able to hear word of Yuri by travelling around Europe. They reside at the inn in the centre of town.

One month after they arrive, the town is visited by Terry, a shop keeper from Bistritz – a nearby village. Terry comes to Alice and Zhuzhen for help, as Bistritz has been attacked by monsters every night for the past month. They agree to help him, but only once Margarete returns to Prague.

Later that night, Terry is attacked by monsters an killed near Prague’s castle walls. This is witnessed by a mysterious old woman who swiftly disappears. Zhuzhen declares that she had an evil aura around her. Him and Alice feel that cannot wait for Margarete and go directly to Bistritz.

Once the Alice and Zhuzhen investigate Bistritz and Blue Castle they return to Prague with Keith and Yuri, hoping to find Margarete there. However, in the time they have been away she has briefly been to Prague only to move onto Rouen in a hurry.

While the party are talking, one of the girls at the bar – Yuria – disappears into the women’s toilets for an extended period of time. Alice goes to investigate to see if she is alright. However, Alice inspects the stalls and cannot find Yuria anywhere.

When Alice is about to leave the bathroom, she sees her reflection in the bathroom mirror move of its own accord. Alice looks for Yuria once more and this time, her reflection turns into that of the Old Woman they saw in Prague before. Alice takes one final look in the stalls, but this time she comes out in the body of the old woman – she sees herself in the mirror, and the old woman appears in Alice’s body. The old woman tells Alice that she would like to keep her body and then fights Alice.

Alice defeats her and sees Yuria’s unconscious body on the floor – the old woman had evidently possessed her before possessing Alice. Just as the battle is over, Yuri barges in to see if Alice is alright and the old woman acknowledges him, giving her name as Arcane Olga and tells them she is serving Roger Bacon. She then disappears.

Together in the inn, the party agree that they need to find Margarete – and they arrange a carriage journey from Prague to Rouen.
