Seeking Sanctuary throughout Chapter 3: The Lower City, Kain was told by the Cabal Contact news vendor that Sanctuary was hidden underneath the Blue Lady Curios shop in the Eastern part of the district.
Kain could see the Blue Lady Curios shop shortly after he passed the City Reformatory, but was unable to reach it due to high fences. After encountering (and briefly pursuing) Sebastian, Kain was able to approach the shop, but had to retreat to the sewers to deactivate a set of Ward gates to allow him to enter the shop.[BO2]
Inside the shop was typical of many of Meridian's businesses - few products are seen and there is only a fenced in counter for a shop assistant. (The name of the shop suggests it sold "bric-a-brac" type items. Kain could pass by unmanned counter and proceed to the basement, Sanctuary.[BO2]
- The presence of Sanctuary behind several Ward Gates and in streets patrolled by Sarafan Guard seems unusual; this may be a 'double bluff' to fool the Sarafan, or evidence that vampires teleported or had another secret entrance.
- Blue Lady Curious features several large signs to the shop, only one has any text, the others depict a lady in a Blue (and white) dress.
- Just before he enters the shop, Kain can activate his first blue Lore Coffer, from behind a deactivated Ward Gate.
- ↑ Vendor: "You’re looking for Sanctuary, then?"//Kain: "Correct."//Vendor: "It’s hidden under the Blue Lady shop in the eastern part of the district. The guards have blocked most of the streets tonight, so it won’t be easy getting there. The rooftops, back allies, and even the sewers are friends to those who wish to avoid attention. However, those that inhabit them may not be friends to you. First thing you’ll have to do is to get past the gate man down that ally. Give him the password, “evernight”. He’ll let ya through"//Kain: "My thanks" Crystal Dynamics. Blood Omen 2. (Eidos Interactive). PlayStation 2. (March 19, 2002) Transcript.
