The Haruspex's base of operation.
The Haruspex's Lair is home to Isidor Burakh's alembic in which to make tinctures, a locker to store items in, a brewery to mix painkillers and antibiotics in, a bed where the Haruspex may rest, and a clock to save at.
On Day 2, the Haruspex will be directed to a factory warehouse. As he enters the building, he will be greeted by Vlad the Younger who explains that the place was once used by Isidor Burakh, and that it is now the Haruspex's to use. Within the lair, the Haruspex will be required to create a twyre infusion, having received a request from the Bachelor to do so.
On Day 7, the Haruspex will ask the Changeling to deliver five bottles of Twyrine to a family who helped him. They can be found in the Lair.
On Day 11, the Haruspex will be in the Lair. He will inform the Changeling of his intention to fight Foreman Oyun.

People who need me will sometimes wait around this place.

On Day 2, the Haruspex is able to find a note in Isidor Burakh's House with a factory key and a note marked with V.O. If he arrives too late (past midnight but before morning on Day 3), the door will be locked but the Bachelor will give the Haruspex the key with the note. Whether the Haruspex chooses to speak to Big Vlad or Vlad the Younger about the note, he will discover that the factory was given to Isidor Burakh by Vlad the Younger. If the Lair has not yet been unlocked by morning of Day 3, a messenger will come to give the key to the Haruspex, saying it has been left by his father for him.
Upon entry the Haruspex will find Sticky, who claims he helped Isidor Burakh with his work. After speaking with Sticky, the Haruspex will be confronted with a vision of his tumbler toy, who teaches him the three layers of the body and how to correctly perform prophylaxis and administering immunity boosters and antibiotics. Later, the mysterious Herb Bride that has been following him around will be found waiting inside near the entrance.
On Day 3, if the Lair still has not been unlocked, Vlad the Younger in the Broken Heart will give the Haruspex the key and point him there. After helping the Soul-and-a-Halves, three people will be waiting outside of the Haruspex's lair, each with their own requests for the Haruspex. One will ask him to discover a way to open the Termitary, one will ask him to "release [his] brother of evil meat", and the other will ask for help on his sisters behalf as she is about to give birth. Aspity will be waiting within the Lair as well.

|On the morning of Day 4, upon entering the Lair, the Haruspex will be confronted with a distressing hallucination of the children on his List hanging from the ceiling. A mysterious figure in an Executor's cloak will taunt him before disappearing, returning the Lair to its usual state. Murky will be found waiting outside of the Lair. She will ask the Haruspex to search for herbs with her, and later, the Haruspex may offer for her to stay at the Lair with him instead of in her abandoned train car. On the evening of Day 4, two Worms will be waiting outside of the Lair. They will provide the Haruspex with a bottle of blood, a kidney, a liver, and a heart as he needs them to create medicine.
On Day 6, Murky will ask the Haruspex to meet her friend in the evening. After meeting her friend, the Haruspex looks for Murky in the Lair, only to find she is not there. Murky will instead be found in her train car.
On Day 10, Sticky can be found infected within the Haruspex's Lair.
On Day 11, a Military Courier can be found dead against the door of the Haruspex's Lair. The Haruspex will then be tasked with determining the fate of the Town.
