Benedict Fox and the Demon Companion
You then head to the Library where a piece of paper with ancient language catches your attention. Studying it closer reveals that the note talks about a Forgotten Ritual, and to understand it further, you will have to retrieve the corresponding pages as well.
Going back to your companion, he will not only provide you with demonic skills in addition to your weapons but will also grant you the ability to travel to Limbo to peer into the minds of the dead. Doing so lets you venture into your father’s subconscious to assume the role of a detective – Benedict Fox himself. His death has led you to investigate the secrets that he kept from you all of these years. In one of the trailers, you literally read the last case of Benedict Fox involving a certain “James Marvin Lloyd” with the description written as, “Possible relationship to subject (Father)”.
