The Study is one of the side rooms branching off from the Back Hall. It is located at the top of the stairs, next to the Guest Room. It bears a resemblance to the Archives.

InformationEdit

Reached from the Back Hall, the Study is an area of Brennenburg Castle designed for research, study, and tutoring. It is a very gloomy place, but also one of the few areas that contain clear windows, and is also the only area where Daniel goes outside the castle. The study is where Alexander performed anatomical studies and experiments on animals to extract vitae. This is observed in a flashback when Alexander is heard sawing open a dog. In the end, he gave up his study on animals to focus on humans, as dogs didn't produce sufficient amounts of vitae.[1] Occasionally,  the miserable barking of a dog can be heard. On low sanity, the portrait of Alexander will appear horribly disfigured.[2]

As Daniel walks down the corridor, the Shadow roars and the resulting tremors fractures one of the windows.

The cycle flow control rod for the Machine Room is kept in the study. Unfortunately, a cave-in has blocked the room with the rod, so Daniel must break the weakened window on the far left and hop along the edge of the building to get there. The Shadow, aware of him, will immediately overtake the nearby forest and consume the area, felling pine trees and frightening Daniel. In this remote section of the Study, one of Alexander's memory capsules can be found. On low sanity in this room, three sides of meat can be seen hanging in the dark corner over the fallen bookshelf.[citation needed]

The phonographEdit

In an earlier version of the game, there was a phonograph in one of the rooms, containing a recording of a woman accusing Daniel of killing her, but also offering him redemption in exchange for answers. As of version 1.2 with Justine completed, the phonograph isn't present.

"Daniel, you killed me! You took my life away! If only you realize what you've done, what violence you have forced upon history! You have to make it right, you selfish little boy! I am offering you redemption, but I need you to give me the answers. Rid yourself of guilt, tell me at once! The man who escaped death in Grenoble, who is he? Who is hunting you, and who is the banished one? You laughed when I told you I would call on Gabriel for help.You know him! Where did you meet him? You are slipping, your mind is questioning my existence! My request is sincere Daniel, this is all real! Where did you leave your sister? Daniel, you are going mad! Go home, call on her, bless her name, and let her bring you home to England! Listen, if there is any will in you left, answer my questions and let them make a name for yourself."

Trivia Edit

  • Whenever Daniel is near or in the dissecting room, he can faintly hear the sounds of dogs whimpering or crying. These sounds are possibly residual hauntings of the dogs that were killed by Alexander during his experiments in search of vitae.
  • There are skulls in the closet in the inner room behind the dissecting room where Alexander tortured the dogs. They will roll out of the closet when it's opened, and will lower Daniel's sanity.
  • All the skulls found in Brennenburg are missing their lower jaws, like Agrippa is missing his. If there are more people who have gotten their jaws sawed off, or if someone had simply removed the lower jaws from the skulls, is unknown. But it would be pointless to rip off the jaw of a skull. It could be possible that Alexander and his servants (or Daniel) sawed the jaw off a person, in order to get vitae.
