Tigger

Posted by: RedMan

This is a seperate section of the Darkness II walkthrough where we have shown you'll how to find all 29 relics in the game. If you need videos for each relic then they are present in the main walkthrough section itself at this page - here

Note: It's probably best if you buy the RELIC HUNTER ability as early as possible in the game, after which you should see a white cross on your screen when you get within a few meters of the relic.

There are a total of 29 relics in the game and the following are all the locations and the meanings of all the relics in the order they appear in the game.


1) ROANOKE'S BANE

Chapter - Dinner Out

Location - You will meet your Darkling in a cafe of sorts after an explosion. Just outside the cafe (you need to tear down the door to go out) you will see the relic infront out you on the ground.

Meaning - The Angelus had once tracked the Darkness to the little village of Roanoke. In order to destroy it, the Angelus possesed a maid in the nearby village and sent her to massacre everyone in Roanoke. The weapon the maid used was called Roanoke's Bane. But needless to say, the darkness survived since it's host was not in the village at that time and when he returned, he took revenge of his oen on the maid's village.


2) YHWH'S LAMENT

Chapter - Payback

Location - You will come down some stairs during the beginning of this place, go behind the stairs to find this. 

Meaning - A long time ago, when the Darkness was gettin increasingly powerful, God decided to destroy it, but he could not do so directly. So, he decided to destroy the food of Darkness - Humanity. God flodded the earth and that was how Noah's Ark became popular. After that, God breathed his remorse into the first seashell he saw, that shell is YHWH'S LAMENT. It is said that only a truly insane person can hear what God said thru the shell. (YaHWeH is God's herbrew name and is written as YHWH in roman).


3) THE TRUE REVELATION

Chapter - The Family

Location - Straight across the elevator is a stair well. Go up and turn left at the top and you will come to a room to the right. As you enter this room, look to the left and you will find this on top of a table.

Meaning - One of a kind revelation of John (Bible's finale). The True Revelation is said to be written in code and whoever can decipher it will be able to read the actual Revelations. This is a copy which the Brotherhood deciphered and reveals their descent into craziness. This dictated the Brotherhood's actions since over a century, this is like their Bible.


4) SISTER OF LIGHT

Chapter - Q and A

Location - In the beginning you will enter the pool parlour by tearing down the back door and you will come into a room full of pool tables. Just as you enter this room, look to the right and you will see a videogaming room. The relic is in here to the right of the room.

Meaning - Metatron's Stele was a stone slab carried down from heaven by Enoch and was made from the Seat of Creation. On it was inscribed every revelation that Enoch witnessed in heaven, but the actual slab was lost and this is a piece of the copied slab. Here we see the will of the Angelus to destroy the Darkness.


5) THE DARKMAN

Chapter - Q and A

Location - You will come out ot the Junkyars and fight with enemies who are behind a car across you. Get near there and you will see a shrine, go left (to the left of the mentioned car) and you will come to this relic.

Meaning - This is a figurine of one of the first and most significant hosts of the Darkness. The significance lies in the fact that, this host actually killed and ate Moses's heart (which is why he never got to see the Promised Land) after a 40-year war. 


6) THE TRINITY

Chapter - Q and A

Location - After destroying the crane in the boos fight, go up the crane and you will come to a door which leads to the next area, look to the right here and you will find a trailer. Go in and grab this.

Meaning - The Trinity was made of three nails which was use to pin Christ to the cross. It's a type knife called Phurba which pins a Demon to the spot where it cuts them. A normal Phurba whold not have been powerful enough to harm the Darkness but this one is not normal. 


7) THE GRAVEN IMAGE

Chapter - Q and A

Location - You will fight the enemy is a room with conveyor belts and stuff (there's the control room to the left far corner of this room which will open the gates to the next area), In the middle of the room to the right is another small room, you'll find this in there.

Meaning - After Moses came down from the holy mountain carrying the Ten Commandments, he saw that some of his people had started worshipping a golden cow. The real name was not known since God struck that name from man's tongue. We just call it The Graven Image and this is the head.


8) CHIME OF DELIVERANCE

Chapter - Q and A

Location - At the end of this mission, you will come to a large store room of sorts. The relic is in the first room to the left (nearby is a light generator and you will need to climb a few steps to get here).

Meaning - The Chime of Deliverance was carried by Moses's army in it's fight against the Darkness. It is said that when the Chime is struck (every 153 steps), it literally pushes back the night and in out case, if it was struck now, it would disintegrate the Host.


9) THE BROTHERS OF MEN

Chapter - Strong Silent Type

Location - At the start of the mission you come out of a car to a parking area. Go to the right far corner of the parking area and jump up to take this.

Meaning - This was a once magical mask which belonged to a group called The Brothers of Men who were from China (back when the Darkness manifested itself in China). It was said that the Angelus had appeared before the brothers and forged 15 masks for them. Also, these masks would reflect whatever light fell on them by a hundred fold.


10) THE KEY OF MICTLAN

Chapter - Strong Silent Type

Location - After you control the Darkling (who helps cut the power to a light) you will fight with enemies who come from a room across a narrow hall way. Go there and you will see this to the left.

Meaning - This is an Aztec totem called the Key of Mictlan, Mictlan being the underworld of the Aztecs - also another form of the Darkness. Men and women wold go to war knowing the Mictlan awaited for them. (Hence a natural fear of the dark...)


11) THUMB SCREWS

Chapter - Deal with the Devil

Location - After you unbind your hands from the cross in the beginning of the level, look behind you and you will see this. 

Meaning - This particular set of Thumb Screws gives out Dark Energy and is thought to have been used by the Brotherhood on one of the hosts of Darkness about 400 years ago and the vibes it gives out may be the taint left behind by the Darkness.


12) THE FOOL'S PHYLACTERY

Chapter - Deal with the Devil

Location - You will come to the roof tops and just as you climb down your first set of stairs, look to the right and you will see this across you. You cannot go there by you can grab them by using your left Demon hand.

Meaning - A Phylactery is a box which can hold evil but in reality one does not exist. This particular one was made by a monk (get rich quick...) in the 1600 and he sold it to the first fool he saw. That guy actually went on and tried to capture the Darkness but instead, got eaten and so have hundreds of others after him. Which is why it's called the Fool's Phylactery.


13) WINGED DEMON

Chapter - Home Invasion

Location - After you fight thru the parking lot, you will enter your home, when you do, you will see two guys shoot each other to the right (one of the mis Dolfo). Go to the left here and you can tear down a door, do so and you will find this inside.

Meaning - The WIned Demon is the first interpretation of the Darkness. 12 of these statues were made by Cain (son of Adam who first walked the Earth) and given to 12 monks who were to carry around the statue warning people of "He who comes with the night". But the Darkness did not like publicity so it hunted and killed all of these monks.


14) THE BLINDING SUN

Chapter - Home Invasion

Location - You will initially fight outside the home, moving on, you will go inside the house and come to a hall way which is lit with a generator light. As you move on this hall, there's a room to the right which has the relic (after you move ahead you will meet Jimmy)

Meaning - The Brotherhood had been after the Darkness for a very long time. Each time, they did their research to capture the Darkness and a long time ago, they correctly predicted the host in who the Drakness would manifest itself and swapped the child with one of their own. After the child had come of age, the Brother hood chaines him and started to torture him. The Blinding Sun was pushed into the eye socked of the host and was slowly expanded till it cracked the skull and the cheek bones of the host.


15) CAIN

Chapter - Saying Goodbyes

Location - Standing infront of your aunt's grave, look left and go to the wall. Look left again near the wall and you will see this behind a grave.

Meaning - This is a box which contains the ashes of the first son of Adam - Cain. One of the theories on how Cain died was that he wandered the world for a hundred years in search for the Darkness but heard of a "Sister of the Light". So he seeked out the sister (Angelus) to seek aid in fighting against the Darkness. But, Cain was ofcourse the first murder who also commited Fratricide. So, even after a hundred years, the stench of Abel's blood (he was Cain's younger brother) was not washed from him, so the moment Angelus smelled this, she burned him to crust and that is where the ashes are from. 


16) ENGRAVED SKULL 

Chapter - Saying Goodbyes

Location - In the middle of this mission in the graveyard, you will need to travel into the graveyard to kill the generator to a light which is shining on the gate that leads ahead.

Go on and this path continues to the right, go left instea and you will find this behind a grave house.

Meaning - This is the Skull of Enoch - the only human who had visited Heaven and walked with God himself. Upon his death, Angels came down and inscribed something in their laguage on his skull and these are the markings. It is said that when kept in absolute darkness, the skull with the markings emits a faint singing sound.

Meaning - The outer casing of this lantern is only 80 years old, but what's inside is over 1000 years old. The Angelus had seeked a never ending light in her fight against the Darkness and it entrapped a hundred souls of childern who were devoured by the darkness in a glass sphere - which is inside the lantern. But, the lantern was abandoned by the Angelus since it was known to be fickle like the mind of a child. After a long time, St.Anthony - the patron of all lost things found this and thought it was a light that led people into safety and gave it to travellers. But overtime, this light actually led hundreds of travellers to their death from over a cliff or into a Bog.
