She cannot however find him and has since then moved onto London.

She however strikes up a residence with a peasant woman who is secret travel bound back for Manhattan.

The woman then reveals herself to be a sister of Walt's and the two venture off to his former residence before his disappearence which she informs the princess of.

The residence still contains the two enchanted skull companions of Walt's who kept him company all those years he spent as an adult.

From there they are able to make contact with Walt through the old clocktower residence he possesses and then learn through the herb he used to heal people he can be brought back from the dead.

In the end the spirit of Walt's father strikes a contract with both god and the devil and makes them equal surmounted godfather's of Walt as Walt's oldest sister, the princess and the two enchanted skulls succeed in proclaiming him back from purgatory.

From there Walt marries the Princess and builds a castle out of his former residence clocktower.

In the end a teaser sequence proclaims that Godfather Death is in purgatory himself trying to communicate through the same large clock Walt did.
