Plot

After Cornelius revealed they'd discovered Ophelia Blackwood, the mysterious Lady Nightshade's, hideout, they hurried into the woods during a full moon for more answers about her life and death. After venturing into the woods, they approached the treehouse, before finding cult leader Damien Whitmore dead by the ladder, his body clawed and his guts spilling out. Pedro then examined the slashes in the trees, confirming they came from a large, powerful, wolf. As the ever-sceptical Lawrence insisted werewolves didn't exist, they suspected occultist Reya Crowe, freelance artist Willow Wolf, and animal trainer Alexandro Fang, who was in Mystveil in search of a legendary wolf. As the team heard howling through the night, Pedro insisted he was overjoyed to find proof of werewolves, much to Lawrence's annoyance. Then, gleefully, Hope told them she'd discovered the wolves' den.

They entered the wolves' den, eventually finding scratch marks across the wall. There, inside the cave, they found reason to suspect Draco's grandfather and grandmother, Hercule and Wilhelmina respectively. They also discovered Damien was hunting down the legendary wolf in Mystveil, named Lupus, rumoured to be larger than the average wolf, with sharp claws, angry eyes, and a howl that scattered the birds. This angered Alexandro and Willow, who both wanted to protect Lupus from Damien and his hunting collection. Amethyst then revealed she'd discovered more information on Damien, revealing him as a devoted supporter of Mayor Osborne. They soon questioned Hercule and Wilhelmina, knowing the Blackwood family were long-standing friends of the Osbornes. They then admitted to knowing Damien, lying about it earlier. They also discovered Reya feuded with the victim, as she supported the Rose Movement. Finally, the killer was revealed as Reya.

The pair then confronted Reya in her home, where she was enjoying one last drink of freedom. Lawrence then presented the evidence and demanded she confess, prompting Reya to admit the truth. She told them how her loyalties were with the Rose Movement, making Damien and her enemies instantly. Reya then snapped angrily, smashing her glass, saying she followed Damien through the woods in hopes of changing his mind, but when she found him in the wolf den, he'd killed Lupus. Angered, Reya told them supporting the Mayor was one thing, but killing a legendary animal for a trophy was another. Reya then took Lupus' claws, and, in an act of revenge, slashed Damien to death, explaining the claw marks. Suddenly, Reya's eyes began to fill with fear as she pointed at a dark hallway. Reya then screamed that she wasn't a sinner, before a gunshot ringed out, a bullet from a revolver landing in her skull. Reya dropped to the floor, dead, as Lawrence spotted a bridal figure from the window, fleeing into the woods.

Lawrence hurried into the woods after her, jumping over logs and bushes, but eventually, he lost the woman, who disappeared like thin air. He then returned to the treehouse, where Moira was bagging Reya's body. Meanwhile, Draco requested to search the treehouse for more information on Ophelia Blackwood. After searching through the old knick-knacks and herbal objects, they found an old photo from Ophelia's witch trial. Per Amethyst, it was revealed the witnesses at Ophelia's trial were ancestors of the Blackwood family. With this news, Draco confronted his grandmother, former stage actress, Wilhelmina, once more. Wilhelmina tried to deny it, but eventually cracked, admitting Ophelia's trial was the darkest stain on Blackwood history. She revealed the Blackwood family were called to testify at Ophelia's trial, and could've saved her and her daughters, but instead chose to send her and her daughters to death. Draco, unsure how to handle the news, then hurried into the woods.

Meanwhile, Lady Nightshade expert Lyra Payne requested to meet with the team to discuss the recent events. She then revealed Mystveil had changed massively since Ophelia and her daughters' murder, but wanted to help them any way she could. Lyra then directed them to the bridge, which was a favourite site for Ophelia. As they returned to the bridge, Sienna reflected on Ophelia's life; black sheep of the family, widow, rejected her entire life, only to die at the hands of villagers after her family turned their backs on her. Eventually, they discovered an old crate of Ophelia's under the ground, which they sent to occultist Antoinette Blackwood to analyse. Antoinette then revealed Ophelia was a herbalist, with connections to many of Ravenedge's societies which still existed today. Antoinette then revealed one of the societies' leader, Raven Hecate, was in Ravenedge, and that she would arrange a meeting between the two.

Later, the team helped Alexandro recover the cubs of Lupus in the wolf den, who were hiding. Alexandro then coaxed them out and promised to nurse them back to health. Finally, Sienna and the player recapped near an old town, still stuck in the ways of the past. As Sienna recounted their discoveries, villagers grabbed her by the arms. An angry Antonio then hurried to rescue her, but it was too late, as she was gagged and dragged away, the villagers plotting to trial her for witchcraft!
