The Willows (Вербы) is a home located in the Hindquarters. It previously belonged to another family, but now Anna Angel resides in the mansion.

Description

The Willows is a sizable home, located in the Earth Quarter, near the Gullet. The home is presumably named after Willow, the girl who lived there before Anna Angel took residence. Prior to Anna Angel, the home was said to be the happiest house in its part of town. Now, the home has an unsettling aura, being said to possess walls that "ooze blood and tears".

Pathologic

The Willows houses a bed where all three playable healers may rest.

Pathologic 2

The Willows contains a number of cabinets where items may be stored indefinitely, as well as a bed where the Haruspex may sleep, and a clock to save at. Upon first inspection, the Willows' cabinets will contain mostly food and other items.

Plot

Pathologic

Bachelor Route

On Day 1, the Bachelor will be told by Yulia Lyuricheva that there is something amiss at the Willows. Upon arriving at the home, he will find a corpse on Anna Angel's floor; she will ask for the Bachelor's aid in disposing of the body. If the Bachelor assists Anna Angel, he will be rewarded with several pieces of jewelry and money.

On Day 2, while in search of the "Silent House", the Bachelor may ask Anna Angel in the Willows for aid. Having heard children speaking of the house, Anna Angel will direct him to Capella to learn more.

On Day 4, Anna Angel has been tasked by Vlad the Younger to test a number of medications. Should the Bachelor choose to test the medicines himself, he may approach Anna Angel in the Willows to receive the collection of pills from her. After finishing the tests, he can return to the Willows and receive a reward from her.

On Day 5, the Bachelor will receive a letter from Anna Angel, who asks him to meet her in the Willows. Upon the Bachelor's arrival, Anna Angel will ask him for aid in blackmailing Var, one of her previous partners in the Ace of Diamonds Caravan, as he once promised her money but did not deliver on his promise. If the Bachelor agrees, he will later return to the Willows with more information about Var and question Anna Angel about the whereabouts of Willow Mellow, Var's adopted daughter.

On Day 6, the Bachelor will discover that the quarantine he placed on the Cathedral has been broken by a mysterious woman, and several hundreds of people are now dead. As Anna Angel is one of the suspects, the Bachelor will be required to gather a sample of her blood. Despite putting on a performative dramatic reaction to having her blood drawn, Anna will cooperate.

On Day 8, the Bachelor may choose to verify with Anna Angel that she was able to purchase a Panacea from Vlad Jr. at a reasonable price.

On Day 9, the Bachelor will be asked by Anna Angel at the Willows to deliver a pistol to Lara Ravel. As a reward for this task, she will give away her Panacea.

On Day 12, as Anna Angel is one of the Changeling's Bound, there is a chance that an Executor will be stationed outside of the Willows with Anna being infected inside. If the player wishes for the Changeling to attend the Cathedral meeting, they must give Anna a Shmowder or a Panacea to cure her.

Haruspex Route

On Day 5, the Haruspex receives a letter from Anna Angel and meets her at the Willows. She will request that he kill someone named Willow Mellow. The Haruspex can choose to accept Anna's request and return to the Willows for a reward.

On Day 6, the Changeling can be found at the Willows. There, she will ask the Haruspex to speak to the Rat Prophet.

On Day 12, as Anna Angel is one of the Changeling's Bound, there is a chance that an Executor will be stationed outside of the Willows with Anna being infected inside. If the player wishes for the Changeling to attend the Cathedral meeting, they must give Anna a Shmowder or a Panacea to cure her.

Changeling Route

On Day 1, the man wounded by the Haruspex can be found at the Willows, alongside the Bachelor. A crowd has gathered in the corner of the mansion and may function as witnesses for the Changeling's healing powers. While at the Willows, the Changeling may speak to Anna Angel, who will ask her to discover what side the Haruspex is on, the Soul-and-a-Halves or the thieves. After finding the answer, the Changeling returns to the Willows for a reward.

On Day 2, the Changeling will be asked by Vlad the Younger to confiscate Anna Angel's medicine stock. Anna Angel will tell the Changeling about the Haruspex's brewing and tincture making abilities, which the Changeling can investigate and return to the Willows later to take Anna's medicine.

On Day 3, Alexander Saburov will ask the Changeling to investigate if Anna Angel is responsible for the outbreak of the Plague. Anna will tell the Changeling she had nothing to do with it and then says she's being blackmailed. After investigating who is blackmailing Anna Angel, the Changeling returns to the Willows and uses her powers to hypnotize and question Anna Angel.

If the Changeling tells Saburov that Anna Angel is guilty of committing a crime, Anna will become infected at midnight and an Executor will be found standing in front of the Willows every day until the end of the game, unless she is cured with a Shmowder or Panacea.

On Day 6, the Changeling can find the Bachelor here from the morning until 14:00.

On Day 11, as one of the Changeling's Bound, Anna Angel may be chosen to be spoken to in relation to the main quest.

Day 3
On Day 3, the Haruspex will be asked by Peter Stamatin to check on Anna Angel, a mysophobic ex-circus performer who lives in the Willows. When he arrives at the Willows, the Haruspex will be tasked with providing prophylaxis to her.
Day 4
During Act 3 (which starts at 07:30 on Day 4, and ends at 07:30 on Day 7), if the Haruspex visits the Willows to speak to Anna Angel, he will be told of her haunting past in the Ace of Diamonds Caravan.
Spoiler warning: Significant plot details follow.
Day 7
After 07:30 on Day 7, the Haruspex will be informed by townsfolk that they have seen Anna Angel attempting to drown rats in the Gullet. Should the Haruspex choose to check on Anna Angel in the Willows, he will learn that she has been cursed by a false steppe haruspex who cut a body he was not allowed to. The curse details that she will forever be haunted by a Heart, and be unable to dispose of it. The only solution to the curse is to trade it for an object specific to the cursed individual - in Anna Angel's case, a Spindle. Should the Haruspex have a Spindle to trade her, he will receive the Heart in exchange.
Significant plot details end here.


The residents of the Willows will be under threat of infection on Day 3, Day 9, Day 10, and Day 11.

Located in the condemned part of town, the Willows is inaccessible during The Marble Nest. When checking the map, Anna Angel will be noted, surprisingly, as alive.

Notes

  • In Pathologic Classic HD the soundtrack that plays within the Willows is Indoor Main.
  • In Pathologic 2 no soundtrack plays while within the Willows.
  • In original Pathologic English translation the Willows were called Verbae.
  • A Willow, Sallow or even Weeping Willow is a type of tree, which often is characterized as depressingly sullen, as its leaves hang and creep downwards. This correlates to the story of the Willows house well, considering its horrifying past.
