Yulia Lyuricheva (Юлия Люричева) is one of the Town's residents and the architect of the road system. Both a rationalist and a skeptic, she is regarded as quite a fatalist among the locals in town.

Description

Calm-tempered. Very clever. Slightly absent-minded. A heavy smoker (comes with being a heavy thinker, and a nervous one at that). Her speech is slightly automatonlike, as if her mind’s somewhere else, deep in the midst of frenzied calculations unrelated to the conversation at hand.

She moved to the town from the Capital and worked as a road planner. It is to her that the town owes its fences and its peculiar layout. She reinvented the very idea of roads and the circulation of people along them, as she got close to perceiving the town as a living body. She’s a “scientific mage” in the same sense that the Stamatins are architectural mages. Ironically, Yulia walks with a limp.

From the game's design documents

By Yulia's nature as an observer, she prefers to listen rather than talk. She draws attention to the hidden connections between events and formulates a theory about the effect of fate. While her theory has not been proven, Yulia often manages to anticipate events and tries to see the hidden motives of other people.

Background

Hired by the Kain family to plan out the roads of the Town, Yulia arrived ten years ago and has stayed in town ever since. She lives and works with a friend in the Trammel, a library in the Chine.

Plot

Haruspex Route

My path was called "Tripwires of Fate." I built the roads of this town such that humans became red blood cells in its veins. And I laid bare the logic of immanence.

While not directly involved in any of the early days' events, Yulia can be found on Day 2 seated on the balcony in Capella's Wing of the Lump, and will discuss her part in designing the Town's streets layout for the Kains.

She isn't seen again until Day 6, when she will be found at the hospital set up within the Theatre offering to help. If not spoken to on Day 2, she will have that section of dialogue in the hospital before proceeding as normal. In the evening, Yulia will reach out to the Haruspex to speak with him at her home in the Trammel regarding the arrival of the Inquisitor the following day. She states that she has worked with the Inquisition before, and suggests she knows Aglaya Lilich personally. She warns him of the Inquisitors' methods, and tells him that he will be a pawn in her game.

Yulia can be seen outside of the Cathedral with Mark Immortell on Day 7, waiting to be interrogated.

When the Army arrives, she can be found in the Town Hall along with Victor Kain and the Bachelor, all three facing Alexander Block and a map of the Town. She cannot be spoken to.

In the Diurnal Ending, she can be found in the Broken Heart, sitting with Andrey Stamatin, Peter Stamatin and the Bachelor. If spoken to, she says she knows the Haruspex to be responsible for the way things have unfolded, and suggests he come with her to the Capital as a research assistant.

In the Nocturnal Ending, she flees the Town with many of the Utopians and Humbles.

The Marble Nest

In The Marble Nest Yulia is still alive. Her location and status are marked as being in danger in the Trammel, though the description says that Clara has declared her to be "beyond the threat of the plague, being the only person to understand the true logic of what's unfolding".

Yulia Lyuricheva (Юлия Люричева) is one of the few residents of the city who can be called a rationalist and a skeptic. She considers herself a fatalist.

Description

Appearance: Yulia is thin and phlegmatic. She wears her blonde hair short. Yilia smokes a lot, her arms are lean and the skin is almost translucent with her veins visible. Yulia is always a bit disheveled, she doesn’t pay much attention to her appearance. There’s a dreamy look on her face, vacant eyes and subtle smile.

Pose: Seated on an old armchair while hugging the back of the seat, head resting on her arms as if she’s about to fall asleep.

Personality: Yulia reads a lot and thinks a lot as well. She’d rather listen than talk. It feels like she emits beams of light from her body; there’s always some spiritual inner process going inside of her. Yulia is a welcome guest to many families. Usually she sits in the corner and silently observes others. She is known for her observance. A few years ago she started a diary. The diary begins with her memories of meeting Lara and her circle of friends. During these years they had their ups and downs and in the end the bounds that held them together began to break. While researching this phenomenon, Yulia extracted some principles out of it. Gradually she came to a rather symmetrical conclusion about the relation between the movements of those people in town and the seemingly random events happening afterwards.She developed a sort of playful and derisive theory: there are invisible strings that cross every road in town (collectively — a Path); cutting them will result in a series of harmful accidents. Now Yulia is preoccupied with the question whether these patterns are just a coincidence.

From original Pathologic character concepts [1]

Yulia is the creator of the ideology of Humility. By Yulia's nature as an observer, she prefers to listen rather than talk.

She draws attention to the hidden connections between events and formulated a theory regarding the effect of fate, which she calls the "trip wires of fate". While her theory has not been proven, Yulia often manages to anticipate events and to see the hidden motives of people. She emphasizes that she does so not through intuition, but with her mind.

Background

Yulia came to the Town-on-Gorkhon with an engineering team during the modernization of the town. She worked on the laying of the roads and served as a logistician. She decided to stay in town, stating that cause-effect relationships are particularly evident there, which she wished to observe.

Portrait Quotes

Yulia is a very smart person. I could never match her intelligence. She's quiet and humble... and perfect. She also possesses a very unique kind of spiritual austerity and purity; she sets the bar higher for herself than for the rest. Yulia has a very intricate way of thinking. I could never learn to think like she does...
Eva Yan's take on her
I find Yulia very nice, but I can't stand the way she thinks. This fatalism of hers is depressing and crushing, and it's appalling to see a mind that bright base its theories upon a false foundation. I believe that any predetermination is an insult to the freedom of choice. I guess it all goes back to the past, when she worked with the Dream Party.
Lara Ravel's take on her

Notes

  • In the original English translation of the game, her name was written as "Julia Lurichev" (in conversation) and "Julia Luricheva" (on the map).
  • Yulia is a well educated woman and often considered to "have the intellect and willpower of a man", such as by Daniil Dankovsky[2]. Though stereotypical, this opinion - combined with her short haircut, Bohemian fashion, design notes, and close fondness for other women - suggests that Yulia is a lesbian.
  • Yulia holds a deep fondness and affection for Eva Yan[3][4] that is indicative of romantic feelings.[5][6]

  2. Block: I fear only one woman in this town. And if she chooses to try for my life, So long me. But I don’t think she would use such extravagant means to achieve that end.
    Daniil: This woman has the intellect and willpower of a man. The owner of the Trammel manor, on the bluff in the Chine district. - Bachelor Route, Day 9
  3. Daniil: Do you like Eva Yan?
    Yulia: Very much. It wouldn't be much of a stretch to say I absolutely admire her.
    Daniil: Weird. I expected you to have a different opinion of her.
    Yulia: She dons the mask of absent-minded promiscuity. But this pose has nothing to do with what she really is. I’d be happy to be friends with her. But she does not understand me - and rightfully so, considering her eminence. - Bachelor Route, Day 1
  4. Katerina: Remember what I told you about Yulia. She is intelligent… Very intelligent. Be careful with her too… I don’t know her very well but she seems like a worthy woman. And very fond of Eva…
    Clara: Yes, mother. - Changeling Route, Day 3
  5. "Eva has yet to be converted. Her heart is pure, yet the arrogance of Scarlet Nina’s ideas have ignited a very dangerous fire inside of her. I will have to extinguish it, lest the greatest powers hold the whole town responsible for this impertinence. Yulia is the keeper of the hooks I may use to take hold of Eva’s soul." - Changeling Route, Day 3 questlog
  6. Clara: But how can I get closer to that Yulia? She’s clever and, I think, has an iron peg for a heart… There’s no hook with which to catch her.
    Saburov: She is fond of Eva. And Eva, it seems, is fond of her. Try talking to Eva. - Changeling Route, Day 6
