Nosferatu: The Wrath of Malachi Wiki

Dr. Gerald Patterson

Location: Main Castle, fixed location
Rescue Reward: Garlic (if you haven't already rescued Mrs. Patterson)
From the Manual: Your father is retired from his trade, but still holds significant respect among his peers back in England. His main concerns nowadays are his financials, the primary reason for giving his blessing to this distant marriage proposal.

Although your relatives tell you that only Lord Belmore and Rebecca are being held inside the Main Castle, your Father is also a hostage inside there. He usually inside one of the large, open dining-hall type rooms. Rescuing him can be difficult, especially with all the dangerous enemies that appear inside the Main Castle. Additionally, he doesn't reward you with anything special if you bring him back to the Sanctuary, just a bushel of Garlic that you will already have if you saved Mrs. Patterson previously. Only go out of your way to rescue him if you're a completist.

BE CAREFUL! As soon as the 14th family member is saved or dead, the game will automatically skip to 6:00 a.m. for the final battle. The 15th family member will automatically die when this happens. Since your Father and Lord Belmore are normally the last two relatives, rescuing one will usually kill the other. The only way to save them both is to locate both of them inside the Main Castle and bring them to the Sanctuary at the same time. The best way to do this is to find your father, then go to one of the rooms on the 1st or 2nd floor where Lord Belmore may appear, quicksave outside, go in, and keep reloading your quicksave until Belmore appears inside.
