Both girls escape to the main hall where they are contacted by an unnamed woman who speaks poetry referring to Franz Kafka's works. The woman explains about the bracelets that they now wear which measure the wearer's fear as part of an experiment. After defeating the monsters in the prison facility and exiting, Claire and Moira are again contacted by the woman who introduces herself as the Overseer and tells them to go to Wossek.
