* If Yuri did really go back in time to save Alice after the good ending of Shadow Hearts 2, what happens to the world at that timeline when he does save Alice? The only reason there was a second game because Alice died and Yuri was moping, ending up in Domremy where his adventure starts around because of her death. Does that mean he dooms the world just to save Alice? Does that mean he doomed Anastasia since he wasn't around to stop Rasputin (or she ends up doomed to be killed along with her family on that fateful since I believe that Kurando would at least tried to save her if that happens if they end up as a couple, but since time is reset and Yuri doesn't really have a reason to go on a journey, Anastasia and Kurando won't meet.) [[spoiler: Also if Karin is really supposedly his mother, than she won't able go back in time to fulfill her destiny since and wouldn't that mean Yuri was would never be born born?]] I am confused.

*** And the Anastasia that he knows there might not be the same Anastasia he and Alice meet again - because when everyone dreamed of the world they wanted, they could have gone to alternate timelines entirely.

** The games are set in the 1910s. Photographs were uncommon back then, and someone like Ben would ''not'' have likely owned one. This would make it seem pretty likely that Yuri would have not made the connection behind "Red-headed caucasian" and "Mother - who was a redhead." Not only that, but Yuri could have blocked out some memories due to Dehuai sending monsters after him.

** I actually thought that the reason why he shield Karin from the blast in the beginning of Shadow Hearts 2 because she resembles his mother but eventually brush it off as a conidence or he didn't think much of it after.

** It could have always been that Will was a little more easy to keep under control than Malice.

* While it's likely that Yuri might not have realized that [[spoiler: Karin is actually his mother]] because of how out-there the idea is, shouldn't he have at least noticed the similarities in their appearance? Surely meeting a girl who looked exactly like a younger version of [[spoiler:his mother]] would warrant SOME surprise and confusion. Did he really just not notice, or what?

* What is the origin of Anne's Cross? If we are to believe what we are led to from Shadow Hearts Covenant [[spoiler: and Karen is really Yuri's mother, Anne, then wouldn't the cross have no origin at all?]] We learn in Shadow Hearts that Ben received the cross from his wife and it eventually found its way to Yuri. We find out in Shadow Hearts Covenant that Yuri gave it to Alice [[spoiler: but due to Alice's death he left it at her grave until he returned with Karen. Yuri then gave the cross to Karen at the time.]] Finally, with the ending of Covenant we are led to believe that [[spoiler: Karen will end up giving it to Ben as she is really Anne.]] Where does it come from? Or is it some kind of fixed point in time to use Doctor Who terms.
