The City was the last settlement of humanity in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver.


"The humans’ citadel -- its towering walls and deep moats engineered to keep Nosgoth’s vampire plague at bay."
―Raziel — Listen (file info)[src]

During the early years of Kain's empire, humanity was 'thoroughly domesticated', leaving only a few feral human groups. By the time of Kain's empire, this had fallen to a solitary Citadel. Surrounded by high walls and deep moats, it was designed to keep out Nosgoth's vampire masters.

When Raziel returned from the Abyss, he was able to breach the City (which was not fortified against winged creatures) and gain access. Within its bowels he was able to find the Water Glyph. It is a large area without a storyline purpose and can be skipped entirely such as the Glyph shrines.

The City can be divided into several main areas - the moat area, the inner walls, the Water Tower area, residential courtyard area, upper street and the sewers.

Inside Water TowerEdit



  • The City is a large area, which houses one health power-up and the Water Glyph. However, in the original Soul Reaver storyline, the climbing section above one of the staircases would have granted Raziel access to an underground city complex, the Undercity and Temple areas, populated by the Vampire Worshippers (in the retail version found only in the Silenced Cathedral) and vampires. The head leader of the worshippers was the Priestess who would have gift of Possession. The battle with her would have included waves of enemies; and upon her death granted to Raziel the possession ability.
