Shadow Hearts opens on the Trans-Siberian express. Before the events of the game, Alice was kidnapped by Japanese soliders, and taken upon the train. The game starts in South Manchu, China where Albert Simon boards the train, calling himself Roger Bacon. It is here that Albert Simon attempts to attack Alice, who is being defended by the soliders that kidnapped her. He kills them, but is interrupted by Yuri. Albert Simon sends a Wind Shear to attack Yuri, while he escapes with Alice. Yuri then follows Albert Simon to the roof of the train and confronts him. Albert Simon is abnout to kill Yuri when the cross that Alice is wearing begins to glow. This gives Yuri time to take her off the train to the reletive safety of the plains.

Origin & Trivia
The Trans-Siberian Express is a rail service that runs from Russia to China. It has never stopped in either Changchun or anywhere within Fengtian (now called Liaoning). However, the Trans-Manchurian line, which also used the Trans-Siberian line, does stop in Changchun. There is also no such place as “Manchu” – most likely this is a mistranslation of “Manchuria”.
