"Despite being a place for children, you sense no joy..."

St. Domek's Orphanage is a location in Fear & Hunger 2: Termina. It is a large, imposing building where many of Prehevil's children were raised and educated.

Lore

St. Domek's Orphanage was founded by Father Domek as a place where Prehevil's clergy could watch over the city's orphaned youth, while also functioning as a regular school for those that still lived at home. Levi grew up here after being taken away from his parents. Marina, being Father Domek's daughter, also has troubling ties to the location.

Though the orphanage was used to house and educate children, it was also the center of extreme abuses levied at the orphans by its priests. Not only were the orphans (and students) treated badly by the staff, there were rumors that some of the orphans disappeared without a trace.[1] Chained shackles, blood-stained bowls and even a child's skeleton can be found in the building's basement, suggesting these orphans were murdered or sacrificed. One of the head priests, Father Hugo, was rumored to be a vampire due to his long life and apparent affinity for blood, which was likely used in rituals to the Old Gods.[2] Even the children who grew up and left the care of this place did not escape the watchful eyes of the priests, who kept extensive, intrusive documentation about their lives.[3]

After the events of the Termina festival, both the children and the priests at the orphanage have presumably moonscorched, transforming them into Fallen cherubs and Decrepit Priests, respectively. Shadowy figures haunt the hallways, presumably being the ghosts of children who had previously died under the orphanage's roof.

Location

The orphanage can be found in the north of Prehevil - North-West. If trying to get there while coming from Prehevil - West (News Agency), there will be a locked gate in the way that can only be opened if destroyed or unlocked from the other side. If entering the area from the Department Store's west exit, you will be able to unlock the gate and reach the Orphanage.

Gameplay

The Orphanage contains a lot of bookshelves and locker, most of which can be looted for books or other items. It also contains the Hunger effigy, a key item required for one of the ways into the Temple district.

The main area of the Orphanage has a lot of loose spots in the floor, indicated by their different texture, which when stepped on will initiate a Coin flip. Failing the coin flip will drop the player into the basement,

The yard in the middle of the Orphanage can be accessed from the northern section and contains a shed with a pre-made circle leading to the Rher dimension. Accessing the shed will require either failing the Talking board puzzle or using a Purifying talisman.

                • Marina: "It really does. I don't want any of this shit."
                • Marina: "This is a miserable place. Even if you exclude all the nightmarish stuff we've seen so far."
                • Marina: "I'm glad it's over now."
                • Marina: "There's nothing for me in this place anymore..."

            • You read her mind... "..."

                • Marina: "Sucks to be you."
                • Marina: "Must have been horrible."
                • Marina: "I only saw this place once or twice, but everyone talked how bad it really was..."

                    • Marina: "Look at the two of us."
                    • Marina: "My father sure had a great legacy. He ruined the lives of everyone who were unfortunate enough to be in contact with him."
                    • Marina: "Let's just forget that horrible man. The sooner we're out of here, the sooner this is all over."

                    • Marina: "..."

                    • Marina: "But you know what? He's gone now."
                    • Marina: "No more of his bullshit."

              • Marina: "What makes you say that?"
                • Player (Levi): "I'm from this orphanage. He visited the place often..."
                  • Marina: "Oh really?"
                  • Marina: "How didn't this come up sooner?"
                  • Marina: "That makes sense actually. You looked grim when we first stepped inside."
                  • Marina: "Sucks to be you."
                • Player (Levi): "I knew him too. I knew him too well..."

        • Levi: "..."
        • Levi: "I grew up here..."

        • Abella: "I see."
  • If Karin is in the party:
    • (School - Level 1)
      • Karin: "Some school lessons ring true, no matter the age."
      • Karin: "If someone bullies you in school, you answer with extreme force. Throw a chair at them. Kick their teeth in. That'll stop the bullying."
      • Karin: "We wouldn't even have this shitshow called 'The Great War' if the bullies had their teeth kicked in when it mattered the most!"
      • Karin: "Another lesson that rings true to this day - No one liked this one teacher in our class. So one day we all skipped the class, what could he have done? Flunk everyone?"
      • Karin: "I don't think so. That would only make himself look bad."
      • Karin: "Again, we wouldn't have this shitshow if everyone from the armies just went home and stopped listening to their superiors."
      • Karin: "What are the old men at the top gonna do!? Fight the wars themselves?"
      • Karin: *Pft* "I wish, would have a few lunatics less in this world."
  • (Outside Orphanage)
    • Karin: "This school building seems to remain scot-free in the midst of all this destruction..."
    • Karin: "I've travelled across Europa these past few years and no matter where I go there are orphanages like these that are booked full..."
    • Karin: "They've come to represent war to me."
    • Karin: "So many war orphans."
    • Karin: "It's not enough that many of them lose a parent on the frontline, but they also have to deal with the mental burden that comes with these times."
    • Karin: "They are the true scars of war."
  • If Daan is in the party:
    • Daan: "..."
    • Daan: "I... I briefly stayed at an inn like this when growing up..."
    • Daan: "That didn't last long... I say kids are better off on the streets than in facilities like these."
      • If Karin is in the party:
        • Karin: "That's a crazy thing to say."
        • Karin: "At least the children got a roof over their head, they get an education and something to eat."
        • Karin: "How is that worse than living on the streets?!"
        • Daan: "These places often attract the worst kind of people. People whose main priority definitely isn't to help children."
        • Daan: "I'm sure there are some decent places too, but for every one of those there are probably ten bad apples around as well."

  • If O'saa is in the party:
    • O'saa: "The western world spoils their children too. Where I come from, the younglings start working the moment they can hold a hoe in their hands."

      • If Abella is in the party:
        • Abella: "Isn't that a bit too harsh? It's the children we're talking about after all..."

      • If Olivia is in the party:
        • Olivia: "Oh I didn't know you had a sister..."
        • Olivia: "Come to think of it, you barely mention your previous life."

          • If Marina is in the party:

      • If Daan is in the party:
        • Daan: "Don't look too intesely, just so you don't get any ideas."
        • Marcoh: "Huh, what?"
        • Daan: "You were really staring at the thing."
        • Marcoh: "Oh. Don't worry."

        • Daan: Good. Just checking up on everyone..."
