|The Trail Of Vincent Perez|
Complete this Mystery
The Trail Of Vincent Perez is a Mystery in Uncharted: Golden Abyss which, when completed awards a trophy of the same name. The Mystery has 11 components, which are scattered through the game.
Vincent Perez spent the last twenty years of his life investigating the mysteries found in the dig site and surrounding ruins.
This mystery focuses on Marisa Chase's grandfather, Vincent Perez, who disppeared while searching for the solution to the mystery of the Spanish grave site. Perez was a noted expert in the ancient civilisations of Panama, and a member of the International Antiquities Office (IOA).
When the Odessa Mining Company discovered the Spanish grave site, the IOA took over and sent Perez in to lead an excavation. The excavation continued for years, until Roberto Guerro's revolution broke out and the site was subsumed into his territory. Diagnosed with terminal cancer nine years later, Perez became obsessed with solving the mystery, and became partners with Jason Dante to negotiate with Guerro for access to the site. Three months later, he disappeared, leaving his granddaughter desperate to discover his fate.
Coponents of the Mystery
Archaeologists use trowels like this one to carefully excavate artefacts from the soil. This one evidently belonged to someone named Vincent Perez. One of Guerro's men must have taken it and dropped it here.

Precusor Orbs are mysterious objects which remain enigmatic even today. The Ancients were rumoured to use them to defy gravity. Proponents of 'Ancient Astronaut' theories believe they are depleted power cells. Vincent Perez believed them to be important components of sacred rituals involving hidden objects, not unlike ancient easter egg hunts
