Pathologic Wiki

The Capital is a location in both Pathologic and Pathologic 2 that is often referenced by various characters, yet very little is actually known about the place. The Capital is likely the central city in the country where the game takes place (likely one paralleling Moscow in Russia). The Powers That Be, the ultimate representation of the Law, seem to reside there.

The characters that are from or have visited the Capital appear to be well-educated, suggesting that higher and superior education is available there. Victor Kain lived in the Capital when he was very young. It's where he met his future wife, Nina Kaina, an aristocrat, who later left there to live in the Town with Victor, implying a level of stratified wealth and power beyond that available in the Steppe. The Olgimsky family moved from the Capital at some point in the past. Mark Immortell used to perform in the Capital before fleeing to Town.

The Bachelor attended university there for medicine, and the Stamatin brothers for architecture. Aglaya Lilich and Yulia Lyuricheva also studied there in some capacity. Alexander Block either resides here, or has merely come from the Capital with the Army.

Characters who came to the Town from the Capital, including former residents:


Throughout the events of both Pathologic and Pathologic 2 the Town is visited by two organisations hailing from the Capital: the Army and the Inquisition. The Army, lead by Commander Alexander Block, arrives with orders to combat the Sand Plague through military means and the Inquisition, lead and primarily comprised of Inquisitor Aglaya Lilich, arrives with orders to solve the crisis through any means necessary. Both arrive on the orders of The Powers That Be.


  • Although Victor Kain did spend much of his young adulthood in the Capital, he was born in The Town.
  • Mark Immortell's former residency in the Capital is only confirmed in Pathologic - his nature in Pathologic 2 allows for a more mysterious origin, and it is unclear just how he arrived in the Town.
