One of the cult's Places of Darkness. The history of this old Mardi Gras warehouse should hold clues about their plans.
After finding the newspaper clipping on the altar at Nuit Blanche, Lincoln pays a visit to Welty Storage in Barclay Mills. He walks through the pitch black warehouse with nothing but his Black Light to see with. After finding his way through the maze-like stacks of crates and Mardi Gras decorations, he comes to a candlelit room where The Ensanglante are performing a cleansing ceremony. As the victim begs for his life, the cultist recites aloud:
I stand before you, Pere Sanglant, with this offering marked as the Filth.
May I be cleansed and remembered upon your arrival.
Come quickly blessed one.
Group chant: The mind ascends. The flesh consumes. The mind ascends. The flesh consumes.
Guide my blade, Father. Let it bleed in your name.
I give myself for the blessing.
Group chant: All for the Blessed. All for the Blessed. All for the Blessed.
Thank you Pere Sanglant. Guide me. Mold me.
The time of the Blessing is soon. Come quickly, Father.
As the man dies, the cultist is congratulated, saying it was beautiful and now he walks with them, cleansed in his eyes. The group then notice Lincoln and attack, but he quickly takes them out. He examines the body and determines that they must have dosed him with Sky to get him back there. Upon a closer look at the man's chest, he sees a symbol carved into his chest like the one he saw at Sammy's Bar. They called it the Filth, to represent the ones they sacrifice. His wrists had also been tied in case he tried to struggle. As Lincoln leaves, a group of cultists enter the warehouse looking for him. After he deals with them a second group arrive as he's about to leave, but Lincoln takes them out as well.

- One note found at the investigation zone reads: "With the slicing of the Well-Born's palm, the Filth devours our sins even as its own stained flesh is consumed."
- Another note reads: "Anna's not yet purified. We need to get her back and complete the ceremony. The Ensanglante have no future without that girl. Find her. Now!"
