Vampyr Walkthrough

17. Pembroke

Pembroke Citizens

Beatrice Goswick

She can be found in the hospital room in the middle of Pembroke Hospital’s patient wing. She is in her own room, along with her son Mortimer. They never leave this room. Beatrice is worth a maximum of 4000 XP, and you have to be Mesmerize 4. Embracing her actually causes Mortimer to make a significant recovery if he’s still alive. In addition, you’ll gain a small key to open the safe in Mortimer’s flat, which contains 350 shillings.

Hint 1: Speak with Beatrice and select “Your life in London?” followed by “Complaints about your reception here?”

Hint 2: After completing the “Burn After Reading” investigation, select “Personal Questions,” then “Your son could try to kill himself again!” You have to choose “He is lucky to have you.” The other two answers will cause you to lose the hint.

Hint 3: After completing the “Burn After Reading” investigation, select “Personal Questions,” then “You son wished to die.”

Investigation: Burn After Reading

Clay Cox

During the tutorial, you have the opportunity to kill him. If, however, you choose to spare him, he will relocate to the medical tents outside the Pembroke … at least until you max out his blood quality and Mesmerize him again. He is worth a maximum of 1000 XP and only requires Mesmerize 1. His loss is not a significant impact on the district, and you pick up 50 shillings, a wedding ring, and Clay’s hatchet, which is a decent starting weapon.

Hint 1: Speak to Clay after learning Hint 4, and ask “Personal questions,” then “Your wife’s letter pissed you off?”

Hint 2: Ask “Your life in London?”, “About the man you pushed in the water?”, and then “Did he want revenge?”

Hint 3: After learning Hint 2, select “Personal Questions,” “How long can you avoid the law?”, and then either “We must all pay the price,” or “Prepare to die, soon…”

Hint 4: There is a Crumbled Note in the southernmost of the medical tents in front of the hospital, next to the river.

Investigation: Tools of the trade

Corcoran Tippets, Dr

He mostly wanders around the ground floor of the hospital, as well as the outer courtyard with the patient tents. He is worth a maximum of 2000 XP and has a Mesmerize of 2. Embracing him allows Swansea to promote Branagan, which is awesome … although not really allowed in 1918. You’ll gain a key to the doctors’ office, as well as another small key to open Tippets’ chest in the doctors’ office (the chest on the right side of the office). This chest contains Tippets’ drug stash (2 Opium) and a tiny key. This key opens a chest down in the basement morgue next to Connor’s corpse. Inside this final chest are 12 shillings and Samuel Connor’s mace.

Hint 1: After finding Hint 5, speak with Gwyneth and then Corcoran. In the latter conversation, assure him that “I will cover for you.” You’ll receive 100 shillings. (If you agree to cover for Dr. Tippets with Branagan, you’ll lose this hint)

Hint 2: In conversation with him, ask “Your life in London?”, “Tell me about the staff.” and finally “Positive Characters?” (also unlocks Hint 1 for Gwyneth Branagan)

Hint 3: Observe Citizen’s action - He spends a lot of time on the ground floor of the hospital, but will occasionally wander up to the first floor of the hospital. When he starts heading this way, you’ll want to make your way out into the back garden, where you can access a scaffolding outside the window of the doctors’ office. Stand in the red shimmer until you can observe his actions

Hint 4: When speaking with Gwyneth Branagan, ask “Your life in London?”, “Tell me about the staff.” and then “Anyone that stands out?”

Hint 5: While investigating the morgue during Chapter 2’s Night Shift mission, you’ll find a corpse on the operating table. Picking up the clipboard next to the corpse gives you the Death Report quest item, and begins the Investigation “The harder they fall.” Now inspect the body, going through all the investigation options.

Investigation: The harder they fall

Edgar Swansea, Dr

He is the pillar of Pembroke and is typically found in his office on the first floor of the hospital. He starts out at 6000 XP and requires Mesmerize 6. Unlike other characters, his XP doesn’t increase when you find hints about him.

Hint 1: After attending the funeral at the beginning of Chapter 3, an "!" symbol will appear at Pembroke Hospital. Return to Pembroke and speak with Swansea before going to the church in Whitechapel. During the conversation, ask “Have you ever lost a relative to a vampire?”

Hint 2: At the finale of Chapter 5, when you are speaking with Dr. Swansea, tell him “This is no coincidence!”

Hint 3: At the beginning of Chapter 4, speak with him in his office: “Help in the West End?” and “Where is the Brotherhood?”

Gwyneth Branagan

She can be found tending the patients in the medical tents in front of Pembroke Hospital. She is worth a maximum of 5000 XP and requires Mesmerize 5. Embracing her gives you Gwyneth’s surgical knife, as well as several treatments for fatigue, bronchitis, and neuralgia.

Hint 1: While talking to Dr. Tippets, ask about “Your life in London?”, “Tell me about the staff,” and then “Postive Characters?”

Hint 2: During “The harder they fall” Investigation, Select “Personal Questions” and then “Tippets’ medical error.”

Hint 3: After finishing the “Missing Ingredients” Investigation for Dr. Strickland, you'll receive the key to the doctors’ office. Inside the office, on the left desk in the middle of the room, you'll find a Letter to Doctor Swansea, and receive this hint.

Investigation: The harder they fall

Harvey Fiddick

A patient in the hospital, he is in the north wing of the ground floor. He is worth a maximum of 1000 XP and requires Mesmerize 1. He may seem like an easy target, but only gives 4 ferrous tartrates, 3 sodium hypochlorite solution, and a pretty cameo which can be sold for 9 shillings. Killing him prior to Strickland and Ackroyd will get them to treat you suspiciously, although this is not a significant impact.

Hint 1: At the beginning of Chapter 2, you’ll find an Unfinished Letter sitting on the desk next to his bed.

Hint 2: After obtaining Thoreau Strickland’s Hint 1, speak to Strickland about “Personal Questions,” “About your blood transfusion techniques?” and then “Tell me Mr. Fiddick’s story.”

Hint 3: After reading Harvey’s letter (Hint 1), ask Harvey “Personal Questions,” and then “You seem worried about your family?”

Milton Hooks

He is usually in front of the hospital. He’s one of the first merchants you’ll encounter. He is worth a maximum of 2000 XP and requires Mesmerize 2. If you embrace Milton before Pippa, she leaves the hospital to join the Priwen. You’ll find her on Whitechapel Street as a 27 Priwen Rookie (and she’ll only be worth 1500 XP, along with her key). Killing Milton will also give you Milton’s shotgun, plus most of his shop inventory.

Hint 1: Ask Pippa Hawkins “Your life in London?”, “How is the staff coping?” then “Why is Milton so grumpy?” Maximum of 2000 XP and requires Mesmerize 2. While you lose his shop, you gain a massive amount of inventory, including Milton’s Shotgun, if you didn’t purchase it from his shop. If, however, you embrace him before Pippa, Pippa joins the Guard of Priwen and becomes a Level 27 Priwen Rookie.

Hint 2: Complete the Investigation “Midnight in the garden of good and evil.”

Hint 3: In the northern area of the hospital is an area being used as a makeshift morgue. There’s a wooden shed with a row of bodies inside. One of these bodes contains a Crumpled Letter.

Investigation: Midnight in the garden of good and evil

Mortimer Goswick

He can be found in the hospital room in the middle of Pembroke Hospital’s patient wing. He is in his own room, along with his mother Beatrice. They never leave this room. He is worth 1000 XP and requires Mesmerize 2 and gives 4 Potassium permanganate and Mortimer’s watch (11 shillings). Embracing him prior to Beatrice will enrage her and cause her to protest in front of the hospital.

Hint 1: Investigate Citizen’s actions - While this pair never leaves the room, every so often Beatrice will close the door and lock it. With your blood sense active, run outside to the front of the hospital. You should spot the glowing red eavesdrop spot to the left of the entrance.

Hint 2: During “Burn after reading” investigation, you will find Mortimer’s letter inside his flat.

Hint 3: After completing “Missing Ingredients” investigation and being able to access the doctors’ office, you will find this M. Goswick’s medical file on a small desk near a window.

Investigation: Burn after reading

Newton Blight

He wanders around the dock area near the Pembroke Hospital. He is worth a maximum of 3000 XP and requires Mesmerize 3. Embracing him will earn you Newton’s saber, a war medal and a large key which opens the gate to the enclosed area beneath Pembroke Hospital’s wharf. Inside, there are several boxes of various crafting materials. (It’s interesting that Newton will go bonkers if you embrace Oswald first, but Oswald handles Newton’s absence pretty well, staying in the area and going about as normal. Maybe because Oswald doesn’t have a weapon?)

Hint 1: Unlocked automatically when first conversing with Newton, before entering the sewers. (Alternatively, you can ask “Your life in London?”, then “Why do you stay here?”

Hint 2: Speak with Oswald Thatcher: “Personal questions,” then “Your fear of being enclosed.” Choose “You got buried,” as the other two choices will lock this hint.

Hint 3: After learning Hint 4, ask Newton “Personal questions,” then “How do you feel about Oswald Thatcher?”

Hint 4: Investigate Citizen’s actions: Newton and Oswald wander the wharf area outside Pembroke Hospital, and will occasionally duck into a secluded (locked) area beneath the street. When this happens, you can observe them through the bars on the south-west corner of the wharf. (If you don’t want to wait, after learning Hint 2, you can ask Oswald “Personal questions,” “What happened when you were buried?”, and then “Shameful thoughts?”)

Investigation: Claustrophobia

Oswald Thatcher

He wanders around the dock area near the Pembroke Hospital. He is worth a maximum of 1000 XP and requires Mesmerize 1. Embracing him gives you a war medal and a large key which opens the gate to the enclosed area beneath Pembroke Hospital’s wharf. Inside, there are several boxes of various crafting materials. Embracing him prior to Newton will cause Newton to go missing and reappear in the sewers as a 27 Beast with a couple of Skal attendants. (Guess he got over that claustrophobia)

Hint 1: Speak with Oswald Thatcher: “Personal questions,” then “Your fear of being enclosed.” Choose “You got buried,” as the other two choices will lock this hint.

Hint 2: Ask Oswald “Your life in London?”, “Why were you locked up?”, then “Claustrophobia?”

Hint 3: Investigate Citizen’s actions: Newton and Oswald wander the wharf area outside Pembroke Hospital, and will occasionally duck into a secluded (locked) area beneath the street. When this happens, you can observe them through the bars on the south-west corner of the wharf. (If you don’t want to wait, after learning Hint 1, you can ask Oswald “Personal questions,” “What happened when you were buried?”, and then “Shameful thoughts?”)

Investigation: Claustrophobia

Pippa Hawkins

Can be found wandering the ground floor of Pembroke Hospital. She is worth a maximum of 3000 XP and requires Mesmerize 3. Small key looted from her unlocks her locker in the northeastern corner of the ground floor. It contains 350 shillings. If you embrace her prior to Milton, he’ll stay at the Pembroke, but will no longer be a merchant.

Hint 1: While talking to Beatrice, ask “Your life in London?”, “Complaints about your reception here?, and then “Tell me about your arrival?”

Hint 2: After learning Hint 4, ask her “Personal questions,” “Leaving this hospital?” and in the Y decision either select “Be proud of what you’ve achieved,” or “Patients need you.”

Hint 3: Complete Milton’s investigation “Midnight in the garden of good and evil”

Hint 4: In the small area in the east wing of the ground floor of Pembroke are two lockers. The right-most one contains a Long letter.

Rakesh Chadana

Spends his time at the north end of the hospital at the makeshift morgue. He is worth a maximum of 5000 XP and requires Mesmerize 4. Embracing him causes you to lose him as a merchant, but has no other impact other than district health. You’ll also gain a key to enter the locked area with the corpses, although there are only some shillings back here. The key also unlocks the chest in his tent, where you’ll gain Rakesh’s surgical saw and a good amount of crafting materials.

Hint 1: Ask Rakesh, “Your life in London?”, “Not afraid of the dead?”, and “Most people fear dead flesh.”

Hint 2: Rakesh often ducks into the wooden enclosure that houses the dead bodies. If you observe him during this time, you will usually get an Eavesdrop opportunity. Enter the hospital’s east wing and observe Rakesh through the window that looks out into this enclosure.

Hint 3: When you first gain access to Swansea’s office at Pembroke, check the desk on the left-hand side of the office to find a letter regarding Rakesh Chadana.

Thelma Hawcroft

She can normally be found near her bed in the west wing, although she also wanders the central area of Pembroke Hospital. She is worth a maximum of 2000 XP and requires a Mesmerize of 2. Embracing her also gives you a small key to open a box in Stonebridge Cemetery, in the tomb you meet Hsiao Shun. The box contains 10 screws, 9 rivets, a silver mirror, and a gold bracelet. If you embrace her prior to Thomas Elwood, Elwood will leave the hospital and wind up in the basement morgue as a 24 Beast.

Hint 1: Ask her “Your life in London?”, “You are a vampire?”, then “Ever heard of Cotard’s Syndrome?”

Hint 2: After unlocking Hints 1 and 3, ask “Personal questions,” and “Tell me about vampires?” Your response here doesn’t matter.

Hint 3: During “Wrong Target”, when you investigate the Priwen observation post, you’ll find Survey Mission note on a table to the left of the windows.

Investigation: Wrong Target

Thomas Elwood

He can be found on the ground floor of the hospital, in the east wing set of rooms. He is worth a maximum of 1000 XP and requires Mesmerize 1. Killing him only nets you a handful of medical components. Embracing him prior to completing “Wrong target” will get Thelma abducted by Priwen; embracing him after this will cause some pretty ridiculous dialogues with Thelma, who is now fully convinced she’s a vampire.

Hint 1: Read Thomas’ medical file, which is located on a shelf in the operating room on the hospital’s second floor west wing.

Hint 2: After learning Hint 1, ask “Your life in London?”, “Real cause of your injury?” and then “Why the lie?” You must then respond “You can’t hide forever” or lose the hint.

Hint 3: After learning Thelma Hawcroft’s Hint 1, ask him “Personal questions,” then “About Miss Hawcroft’s disease?”

Thoreau Strickland, Dr.

He can be found in the north wing of the hospital’s ground floor. He is worth a maximum of 4000 XP and requires Mesmerize 4. Embracing him gives you a small key, which unlocks a medical cabinet in the doctor’s office. This cabinet contains 100 shillings, a Thoreau’s surgical knife. If you embrace him before Ackroyd, it ends the deadlock between the two doctors and Ackroyd performs the surgery on Fiddick, who makes a recovery. (Unless you embrace both doctors at once; then Fiddick loses his arm … unless he’s also dead)

Hint 1: Speak to him about “Your life in London?”, “Tell me about yourself?”, then “Tell me about your experiments?”

Hint 2: When you first gain access to Swansea’s office at the Pembroke, check the right side desk to find a Warning Letter.

Hint 3: During Investigation “Missing Ingredients”, after returning with the pharmacy order to Dr. Strickland.

Investigation: Missing Ingredients

Waverly Ackroyd, Dr.

He can be found in the north wing of the hospital on the ground floor. He is worth a maximum of 4000 XP and requires Mesmerize 4. Embracing him will give you a small key to unlock one of the medical cabinets in the back of the office. Inside, you’ll find 200 shillings and several treatments. If you embrace him before Strickland, Strickland will perform Fiddick’s surgery and mess it up, causing Fiddick to lose his arm. (If Fiddick is still alive, that is)

Hint 1: Speak to him about “Your life in London?”, then “About the Pembroke hospital?”

Hint 2: When you first gain access to Swansea’s office at the Pembroke, check the right-side desk to find a Note to Dr. Swansea.

Hint 3: After learning Thoreau Strickland’s Hint 3, ask Ackroyd “Personal questions,” then “Strickland’s chance to cure the flu?”
