The chief's house is a far larger house than any of the other houses in the village, complete with a back door garden and even a shed and well for the chief.
The house back entrance had a sign post, and the path was rigged with explosive tripwires and traps. The back door require a puzzle solving to enter. Inside the house, a framed picture of Osmund Saddler and Bitores Mendez, along with a painting of the church and a lake can be seen. The Insignia key can be found here. This house also filled with various furniture along with an proper eating table, urinal and a kitchen. The entrance is guarded by a villager with a chainsaw. The room also contain bookshelves that are apparently written in English.
At the start of the area, three crows sit in the path to the house. The crow closest to where the player stands has a high chance to drop Handgun Ammo, but drops money all other times. The two crows in the back drop money, and can both be taken out with a shot of the explosive tripwire they sit below. To the left is a well that has the Brass Pocket Watch hanging over it. Shoot the board support, then the Watch to have it fall safely and cleanly into your possession. The small shack next to that contains a crate and a barrel, both containing random items. The next obtainable items are in the Chief's room. A box of Handgun Ammo sits in the desk, and a box of money in the wardrobe. After picking up the Insignia Key and leaving the room, the Chapter 1-2 Ending scene will play where Bitores Mendez attacks Leon and warns him that he is one of them, knowing Leon was infected by Las Plagas and the chapter ends. If during Chapter 1-3 the player goes back into the room that had the Insignia Key, Chapter 1-3 scene 1 will be triggered where Mendez attacks Leon once more and is rescued by a woman in red who shoots the chief through the window. After the scene, the window will be shattered.
In the cupboard behind the player's 1-3 starting position is a Green Herb. Downstairs in the kitchen, located in the oven is a Brown Chicken Egg. At the back of the house on the ground floor is a cabinet containing an Incendiary Grenade and a cupboard with a box of money. Outside, a Chainsaw Man and his cohorts wait. The Chainsaw Man drops a Ruby upon death, worth a hefty 10,000₧. Just about where those villagers stand on the path is a bird's nest in a tree above the path, which will drop a Spinel when shot. In the shack mid-way down the path, a box with a Red Herb sits. Just a little ways more down the path is another bird's nest. This one contains TMP Ammo. Remove the bar from the door at the end of the path and Open it to proceed.
