- "A study? Though it's practically an entire library."
- — Mira, after entering the room
The Study is an escape room that is found within the Triangle fragment for Q-Team. It is a spacious room containing two floors full of books and elaborate furnishings. It is searched by Q, Mira and Eric.
The room is so full of books that it's practically a two-story library. It also contains multiple safes, and a revolving chair that allows someone to reach books on the second floor without climbing the spiral stairs.
Eric stumbled upon the entrance to the study while examining the walls in the shelter. The room is not marked on Q-Team's map of their ward. As it appears that someone was just there, Q-Team decides to search it for clues to Zero's identity.
