Vampyr Districts Guide – District Pillars, Citizens, Hints (Pembroke Hospital, Whitechapel, The Docks)

The Vampyr Districts Guide is for the various districts and regions you can discover in London. Moreover, you can also find a list of NPCs you can interact with to possibly acquire their side missions or embrace them for blood.

Vampyr Districts

The four Districts that London is divided into for the story purposes goes like The Docks, Pembroke Hospital, Whitechapel, and West End. Each district holds up to 16 NPCs that you can speak to and delve deeper into their background through quests. Each district also holds at least one safe house, the locations for which you can check at our Safehouses Guide.

Of course, you could go all greedy and embrace these important citizens for XP and thus leveling up. However, you need to keep in mind that once you’ve sucked the blood out of citizen, they’ll not make an appearance later in the game.

Moreover, too many killings lead to the district being more hostile and thus the difficulty Level of that region goes up.

Additionally, if you sleep too much in the safe house, you’ll see citizens start getting sick and requiring a cure. All of this, along with the number of fatalities mentioned above, contributes to the health status of the district which you can view in the Citizens menu if you’ve discovered that specific district.

This has ramifications like the prices going up at a merchant’s shop and some limited items being available and so on. It’s best to keep these citizens safe until you’re done with all their quests and Investigations so you can embrace them only later in the game.


Each District holds around 16 Citizens that you can cure, embrace or head Investigations for. Within each District, you’ll have an important figure, a central character or the ‘Pillar’ of the district as called by in the game. Again, you can head to the Citizens menu to point out the Pillar of a specific district.

Pillars have the most priority when it comes to story and how they’re affected by your choices. These are connected and related to other citizens. Killing them off marks a drastic reduction in the health status of the district.

However, Pillars will also have a high Mesmerizing Level and so they award a lot of XP when you embrace them. It’s your choice really if you’re going for the greed or just being a good person! The pillars are mentioned below for each district:

  • Dr. Swansea: Pembroke Hospital
  • Sean Hampton: Docks
  • Dorothy Crane: Whitechapel
  • Aloysius: West End
