The Latin Paper is a story item which contains lore about the Peninsula.


The Latin Paper can be found in Cave 1 - Dead Cave near the sinkhole entrance.

The contents of the paper is written in graphite, and include a drawing of a crucifix, notes in Latin, and a top-down drawing of the sinkhole. As per the rough translations found below, the notes seem to suggest Christian Missionaries attempted to fend off Virginia and mutant baby creepy mutants with crosses and traps, to no avail.

As such, the paper also suggests that the mutants and the sinkhole predate Sahara Therapeutics' activities on the Peninsula.

The paper may be related to the Virginia Sketch as both are sketched on paper with graphite, and both seem to belong to the Christian Missionaries, lending credence to the theory.
