Find Matthius

Azriel Odin

Head right and talk to the vendor. Return left and try to use the terminal, then kick it and try to use it again. Go to the right and talk to the vendor to get his ID card. Go left once more and use the ID card on the terminal. Search for "Matthius Howard", then read the entry that is found. Next search for "Hibiscus Highrise" and look at both entries. Click on the map in the terminal screen to see 4390 Brookview is to the east. Leave the terminal and walk right. Return the ID card to the vendor.

Continue right several screens and open the door to number 4390. Talk to the receptionist about Matthius Howard, say you are with the Boryokudan, and that you don't have to prove it - you will end up with Matthius' room number. Ignore the elevator, and instead go through the door to the right. Climb up top the top floor and go through Stair master.

Walk to the left and use the elevator control then head inside. Press button 4 on the controls in the elevator, then exit on the 4th floor. Knock on door 4E but there is no answer.

Try to open the balcony door, then pick up the stick blocking it and try again. Head outside. Climb the ladder, climb over the railing, walk along the ledge, then climb over the other railing and down the ladder. Try to open the balcony door but it is locked. Use your stick on the door, then kick the stick and reach through the crack. Now open the door and go inside.

Walk over towards the console, but then the Boryokudan will arrive. Quickly head back out to the balcony and all the way back to room 4C. Go out to the corridor to see the Boryokudan leave.

Leave the apartment building via the stairs or elevator. Go all the way to the left where you started the game and talk to the Cowboy Bebop character (1/4). Now go all the way back to number 4390.

Return the gun to the pedestal, then go and take the food ticket from the wall printer. Go back into the first room, then wait until the other door opens, and go through.

Continue down the ramp to the left and through another door; after the woman takes some cloth from you, go left and through the door at the end. Use the right elevator control, but it won't work. Try the other control, then use the box on the floor - move it to the far right by holding D, then stand on it by pressing W. Use the wire hanging above you to fix the elevator. Climb down from the box and head inside. Use the controls to go to level 4, then exit the elevator.

After getting beaten up, go through the door on the right, then walk down and sit at the table next to the girl. Talk to her, then walk down again and leave the mess hall. Go to the elevator, use the controls and get inside again. This time use the controls to go to level 2. Exit the elevator and look at the eye scanner next to the left door. Go through and use the scanner next to room D-6. Go into the room and use the bed.

Escort Matthius

Azriel Odin

Kill two men without taking any damage in your first gun fight (1/6), then have Matthius climb on the box and over the wall. Now use the box yourself, dragging it to the left then climbing on. Use the drain pipe to get over the wall. Use your gun on the lock, then open the gate and head right. Quickly head into the back alley when you can, then continue right Diplomacy. Continue right twice more to reach Hibiscus Highrise.

Open the door and go inside. Now select either one of the characters to move first. As soon as the guard leaves to the right, head across to be behind the far right wall. Repeat this with your other character. Open the door here and go through to the stairwell. Head upstairs to the next door, then open it and go through. Head left, use the elevator control and head up to level 6.

Go right and kill the guy without taking any damage in another gun fight (2/6). Once in the next stairwell, close the door and use the lock. Use Matthias on the door at the top, getting him to push against it. Now kick it yourself to open it and head through.

As you get out of bed, you will gain the ability to switch characters, although you don't need to use it yet Geminis.

Leave your room and go right, then use the left elevator. Pick up the note (1/4) from the floor, then use the control to reach level 4. Enter the mess hall on the right and go to the other end of the room, then sit down and talk to Balder. Leave the mess hall and take either elevator up to level 5. Head right and look at the eye scanner next to the third (blue) door, then go through. Go all the way to the right and pick up another note (2/4). Look at the eye scanner next to door 2 and go through. Wait here to be scanned, then continue through the door on the right.

Save your game. Go and pick up the gun and go through a slightly more complex training exercise in 2 segments. There is an achievement for completing both segments perfectly Grade A Student.

Look at the eye scanner on the left and head through the door, then enter room D-6 again. Kick your toilet, then use the tank interior and take the metal pipe.

Next use your screwdriver on the grate in the floor and drop the pistol down the drain. Return left, through the scanning area, down to the left and to the elevator, then go down to level 4.

Enter the mess hall and go to the dispensers. Use your screwdriver on the grating beneath the left dispenser, and use the metal pipe on the opening and then the flap to dislodge the gun. Use the elevator to go to level 3 and enter the gym. Get Balder to move the shelf unit on the left, then open the grate here with your screwdriver and dislodge the gun with your metal pipe again.

Inside, try to get over to the crates, but you don't fit through the hole beneath the fallen beam. Return outside and left to the screen with the vendor, then go down the back alley. Talk to the girl at the dumpster and ask her for a favor, but she won't help until you get her security card. From here go right and then down. Look in the dumpster and use it to see there is a hole at the bottom. Follow the water to the right until you are outside 4388. Kick the muck at the drain and pick up the security card.

Head left and talk to the doorman - say you need information and were sent by Winston Lucas. Give him any name for yourself, then give him your pistol and head inside. Say you are an assassin, then knock on the door, open it and go through. Answer any way you want here and you will end up out of the room again.

Use your phone to call Kenneth; keep calling until you get the option to offer him a job as a pilot, and offer to pay enough to buy him transport here and back to Taurus. After he agrees, go outside, then head right and through the door to Hibiscus Highrise. Use the elevator to go up to level 3, then knock on the door at the far end of the corridor. After the conversation, pick up the photo from the floor, then get into the elevator and head back down to the lobby. Go outside and head left twice, then use the photo on the terminal. Zoom in on the ship at the top right until you can read the red serial number on it Give me a Hard Copy. Now use the mafia ID card on the terminal and search for "32635", then click on the match on the left. Next search for "Paul Erickson" and click on the entry.

Use your phone to call Paul Erickson, but there is no answer. Head down the street and go left into the back alley. Move the crate to the right so it is under the fire escape ladder. Climb on to it, then stand on the horizontal pipe (use the foot icon) and climb up to the ladder above. Kick out the window and climb inside. Go left and through the door to the stairwell, then head downstairs to the lobby. Read the paper on the front desk and the note in mailbox 2A.

Instead go back down to the lobby and enter the stairwell. Walk up one flight and then walk to the far right. Step in the hole in the wall, then use your lock picks on the conduit above. Head left and talk to the agent to knock him out - you will end up receiving the meds. Go back to the stairwell, and go downstairs and back outside.

Walk left 3 times and give some meds to the beggar Good Samaritan. Head into the back alley, climb up the fire escape and go through the window. Walk through the open door over to the left and give Paul the rest of the meds. After talking to him, go and use the console on the right. Keep talking to Paul until you learn the name "Barry Adama".
