Harless Mansion (Mission) 2

The Well-Borns

After finding the photograph of Braxton Harless on the altar at Nuit Blanche, Lincoln pays a visit to the Harless Mansion to investigate. Upon arrival he comes under attack by a group of cultists. Once he deals with them he enters the mansion through the attic and makes his way to the main floor. He begins to feel the effects of the drug and starts to hallucinate again. He sees vines grow rapidly and stretch across the floor of the room. Lincoln shakes it off, knowing it can't really be happening, and investigates the items there.

He listens to a recording of Braxton Harless describing how he first encountered Pere Sanglant, and then he examines a uniform and other relics belonging to the General. One of note was a medal he had been given for slaughtering a bunch of runaway slaves. Across the room he finds a watch and Rebel uniform belonging to Harless as well. When he finishes there he makes his way down to the basement to investigate further.

Lincoln finds the long dead remains of General Harless in a chair, sitting in front of an idol of Pere Sanglant. He takes a photograph of the idol, then picks up a book sitting on Harless' lap. Inside he finds a symbol of the Well-Borns, which matches the one he found on the body at Sammy's Bar. He plays a recording that describes how the Harless bloodline will bear Pere Sanglant into flesh, and that incarnation will be known as The Blessed. Having seen all he needs, he leaves the mansion.
