Shadow Hearts: Covenant

Shadow Hearts: Covenant

Shadow Hearts: Covenant is a direct sequel to Shadow Hearts. The story starts a year and a half after the first part, in the middle of the First World War. It centers on Karin König, a lieutenant in the German army who helps exorcise a man who can turn into demons, Yuri Volte Hyuga. However, after learning that Yuri has a caring nature, Karin goes on a quest with him to save him from a spell inside him, and they are drawn into a conflict with demonolatry demons.


The game begins with Karin Koenig, a lieutenant in the German army during World War I, traveling to the town of Domremy with a Vatican inquisitor, Nicolas "Nicolai" Conrad, to exorcise a demon. When they get there, it turns out that the demon is Juri from the previous game. Nicolai places a curse on Juri that greatly weakens Juri, but also exposes Nicolas as a member of Sapientes Gladio, a faction of dark sorcerers who seek world domination. Yuri flees with Karin and they form a small group of allies to thwart Nicolas' plan. Nicolai, an illegitimate son of Tsar Nicolas II, hopes to take control of Russia with the help of Rasputin, the current leader of the Sapientes Gladio. Yuri manages to regain his powers with the help of former Sapientes Gladio sorcerer Jovis, although his memory is still affected by Nicolai's curse. The group then finds and defeats Rasputin and Nicolai. Before Nicolai can be finished off, however, he is rescued by Kato, a Japanese envoy and old friend of Yuri's, and taken to Japan. In Japan, the group tracks Nicolai to a research lab where he is possessed by a demon. After finding out where he is, the group pursues him, but not before Kato's wife is killed. In desperation, Kato tries to recreate the world with his own magic, forcing Yuri and his group to hunt him down. The game has two possible endings. In the "bad" ending, Yuri's personality and memories are erased by Nicolai's curse and he spends the rest of his life in the care of Roger Bacon, his old friend. In the "good" ending, Yuri chooses to die so that he will not lose his memories and personality to the curse. He then finds himself at the beginning of the previous game. In both endings, Karin travels back to 1887 and turns out to be Anne, Yuri's mother.
