This page contains all of Agrippa's dialogue from Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

Real-time dialogue[]

Nave[]

Strained[]

These lines will be spoken when first approaching Agrippa in the Nave.

Help me... Pull the switch... Next to me... Please...


Introduction[]

These lines will be spoken after pulling the lever next to Agrippa.

Thank you, you have my gratitude. My name is Agrippa. Who might you be?

...Daniel? Like the prophet thrown into the lion's den? [Laughter]

Tell me – are you among the lions, Daniel? You want to stop Alexander? Oh, my... so Babylon shall fall, you say? [Laughter]

You worry too much. Alexander is toothless without an orb...He has one? That's... that's not very promising at all. The Sanctum is basically impenetrable while guested by an orb. It could be breached by another, but Alexander broke his, I mean my orb, a long time ago.

...Really? Well, if you tell the truth, by all means. Seek out the pieces of the broken orb and mend away. I believe he uses them for torture now. They practically leak madness, which is quite useful I understand.

There should be six of them. Look around the Choir and the Transept, you should be able to find them there.


Tonic quest[]

These lines will be spoken the next time Daniel enters Agrippa's room.

Daniel – I hate to bother you further, but...If you are really going after Alexander, would you consider...taking me with you?

I know it sounds ridiculous – I mean look at me. But if you find anything concerning a man named Johann Weyer, would you please bring it to me? I believe he was working on a way to help me. A recipe for some sort of potion – a tonic to free me from this husk of mine.


Doors[]

These lines will be spoken while investigating various things around the Nave.

So, the laboratory is locked. That is unfortunate. But it can wait. Find the orb pieces and the ingredients for Weyer's tonic. We'll have to deal with the laboratory door later.

After examining the locked door to the laboratory.

What lever? Oh, that one. So many of Alexander’s things are breaking down. Look around, maybe the other room. There are machine parts hidden all over this place. You’ll find a way to fix it.

After examining the broken lever upstairs in the Nave.

You got the doors open? Good going. I knew you could do it.

After fixing the lever and opening the doors leading to the Transept and the Choir.


Weyer's note[]

These lines will be spoken after finding the note containing Weyer's recipe in the Nave.

Incredible – you found Weyer's recipe. Then there still might be a chance.

Listen carefully. Alexander is working on opening a gate – a door to another world. It is where he wants to go. If you could put your anger aside, let him open the portal before you take your revenge.

Let me pass the gate, Daniel. Please, find the ingredients and prepare the tonic Weyer describes. And do so before you assemble the orb. The barrier keeping you from the inner sanctum will only be breached for a short time. Unless everything is taken care of before, you won’t be able to save me.


Orb pieces[]

These lines will be spoken when returning to the Nave from the Transept or Choir with orb pieces in the inventory.

I see you have found some orb pieces, but there should be more. Alexander would most likely keep them close to torture contraptions. Check the Choir and Transept for more.

After finding at least one orb piece in either the Choir or the Transept.

You seem to have found all the orb pieces used in the Transept. Go to the Choir and find the rest.

After finding all the orb pieces in the Transept.

Looks like you cleaned out the Choir. Head for the Transept and find the rest of the orb pieces.

After finding all the orb pieces in the Choir.

I see you have all the orb pieces you need. I know I have no right to ask anything of you. But if you could find it in your heart to gather the ingredients for Weyer's tonic before attempting to mend the orb, there might still be a chance for you to save me.

Please, my fate is in your hands.

After finding all six orb pieces.

You have everything. What are you waiting for? Head towards the Chancel and find a way into the laboratory. Inside, you should be able to produce the tonic Weyer talked about.

When having gathered all the orb pieces along with all required ingredients for the tonic.


Greetings[]

Agrippa will begin his dialogue with one of these phrases when returning to his room in the Nave.

Daniel, good to see you...

Was there something else...?

Ah, you again...

How are things coming??


Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa[]

These lines will be spoken when returning to his room in the Nave, and he has no other mission-critical dialogue.

Who, me? I am Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa. I was once quite important, you know. Baron Alexander has sustained my soul in this dead husk for years. Who knows how many... hundreds I presume.

Alexander is quite impressive in many ways. But he has grown impatient.

Why me? I'm the next best thing. Alexander really wanted none other than Johann Weyer...You never heard of Johann Weyer?! My God, boy! He is probably the greatest man in history and you don’t know him?! Or is it the world who has forgotten him? [Sigh]...

Weyer was my pupil – my pupil. Yes, I do take pride in that fact. Is it so wrong?


The Orbs[]

These lines will be spoken when returning to his room in the Nave, he has no other mission-critical dialogue, and he has exhausted the dialogue from the previous heading.

I found a Mithraeum once. One which had not been plundered. Do you know of Mithraism? I suppose it doesn't matter.

It's an old faith – building temples out of caverns. The dark walls being the universe and inside are its followers... humans watching the sky slowly turn.

But the followers do have one thing to allow them a real sense of connection to creation... the Orbs.

Not many orbs are left. They sometimes consume themselves or break when used by an uninitiated.

I was lucky. The Orb I found spared my life and returned to where I had found it. I know, because Alexander took it and brought it to Brennenburg.


Johann Weyer[]

These lines will be spoken when returning to his room in the Nave, he has no other mission-critical dialogue, and he has exhausted the dialogue from the previous heading.

Weyer was a brave man and dared to proceed where I did not. He unearthed a number of cavern temples and gathered a whole collection of Orbs. But unlike every other finder since the fall of the Mithraic faith, he was able to unshackle the horror you and I connect with the Orbs. He used them and was able to travel far and wide. Beyond the world itself.

Me, powerful? Not in the way I had hoped for. I have done all that I can to escape this prison, but now I use all my strength merely to stay alive.

My pupil, Johann Weyer, said he had found a way to take me with him beyond the stars. But I was too afraid to come along. Silly really...

And now all I can do is regret it. I always hoped Weyer would return and give me a second chance. But so does Alexander, that's why he keeps me here...as a hostage, hoping Weyer will reveal himself.


No more dialogue[]

These lines will be spoken whenever he has run out of other dialogue.

You are a good boy, Daniel, and I appreciate your company, but I believe you have more important things to take care of.

You should hurry, Daniel. No time for sitting around.


Nave Redux[]

Return[]

These lines will be spoken when returning to his room, after escaping the cells.

Daniel! I thought I had lost you. The castle trembled and I could hear the Chancel collapse...The laboratory might be accessible now. Make haste. You are more than ready to make the tonic.

Go on, you should find everything you need in the laboratory.

What are you doing? Time is running short. Hurry, you'll find everything you need in the laboratory.

When lingering too long in the Nave without making the tonic.


Finished tonic[]

These voice lines will be spoken after returning with the completed tonic.

You did it. Thank goodness! Now, pay attention.

First feed me the tonic, and then use the saw to remove my head. As the tonic begins to work you will be able to cut off my head without taking my life. Then take my head and bring it with you as you enter the gate Alexander is opening in the Inner Sanctum.

...What do you mean? Why wouldn't you enter the gate?

We can't argue now – you need to act.

Spoken when returning to Agrippa with the finished tonic.

Don't get ahead of yourself. First we need the tonic.

Spoken if Daniel attempts to cut off Agrippa's head before feeding him the tonic.


Consumed tonic[]

This voice line will be spoken after feeding Weyer's Tonic to Agrippa.

Quickly! Off with the head! And Daniel, whatever happens – get me through that gate.


Ending[]

These voice line will be heard during Agrippa's Ending.

There he is. Do you see him, Weyer? He deserves so much more. Please help him, I know you can.

Don't worry, Daniel. It will be alright.


Memories[]

This is for dialogue the can be heard in the flashbacks of Amnesia: The Dark Descent.

Agrippa[]

This flashback is heard in the Nave, when passing the Laboratory.

Alexander
"Agrippa? I need you to stay awake. Can you feel the syringe?"
Agrippa
"No, I can’t feel anything. Alexander?"
Alexander
"Yes?"
Agrippa
"Soon, I won’t even be able to move, will I?"
Alexander
"Your life is safe."
Agrippa
"I don’t doubt that – but will it be worth living?"
Alexander injecting Agrippa with vitae to maintain his life.

Documents[]

This is for all Agrippa lines in writing from Amnesia: The Dark Descent, i.e. from notes and such.

Regarding Explosive Mixture[]

In the Storage – This note can be found on a table in the room to the right after going down the stairs to the "Equipment" section of the Storage.

Alexander,

I have prepared the explosives you needed for clearing the flood drain. I can't stress enough how important it is that the mixture is handled with care. Please try to tell your featherbrained servants this before you go ahead with your plans. The liquids are not by themselves explosive and should be kept separated to avoid further mishaps. I have arranged two large vats in the next room for the ingredients. All you need to do is to mix the liquids and you are ready to go.

Agrippa


Letter Regarding the Discovery of an Orb[]

In the Study – This note can be found on a small table in the first room to the left after entering the study.

To my most trusted student and friend Johann Weyer.

The most remarkable thing happened as I was traveling through the Prussian woods this summer. I finally found one of the orbs I have been looking for the last twenty odd years. It is as inexplicable as the Heliodromus described it in the Hortus Conclusus. It was as it was told about, an underground Mithraic temple crowned with the unearthly artifact. The orb was big enough to fill my cupped hands and the texture was smooth and jagged – its color washed while rich. Contrast is not enough to describe its nature. It was an impossibility, an artificial paradox captured within stone.

I was staying in a nearby village called Altstadt, investigating one of the antiquated trails, when I finally found the cavern. I went inside and suddenly I could verify the truth of these enigmatic artifacts – they were real.

As you can understand, this is the most important discovery of my life, but it has also become my greatest fear. As I entered the underground chamber I could feel that I was trespassing. Because of my curiosity I did my best to fight these instincts and fetched the orb from its place. I scrambled out of the chamber and into the woods. I could sense something was following me, it bayed loudly as it closed in. The beast, this guardian of the orb, was relentless in its pursuit.

I made my way to a nearby ravine where I stumbled upon some men fishing in the lake. I tried to warn them as I passed, but fortunately they remained as I continued my escape. When I heard their cry of pain echo through the valley, I felt such a tremendous sense of relief, thinking I would be spared.

Suddenly a blue shimmering light engulfed me and the colors of the forest were washed away before my eyes. I kept running through the bleak surroundings, the trees had turned charcoal black with leaves of cinder, the ground covered in murky water. I pressed on through the drenched land as the glowing ember gave way to the rising wind and rained on me. I could hear pleading screams in the distance and I joined in as pain and fear overtook me. I fell to the ground gasping for air.

This certainly must sound strange, but I had been carried miles away across the Alps to a grassy field outside Genoa. The guardian had taken the orb from me, but still until this day I fear its return. Sometimes I lay awake at night listening for the howling cry I heard in the forest. It has been nearly a decade since that day and I still haven't been able to write about the incident.

The last time we spoke you told me about your interest and ongoing research into the mythic orbs and I realized I owed you the truth about my visit to Altstadt.


Your friend and mentor,

Heinrich Cornelius Agrippa.
