Hoooooly!!! Many thanks, deliciuous, many thanks!
[spoiler]Regarding the "Two urchins in a trench coat" mysterious benefactor and Heart's Desire qualities, what are the exact requirements?
I don't even know about Two urchins in a trench coat.

[/spoiler]
Same for Flute Street. What quality or level is required?

Think The Old Man is talking about Location of an Underground Organ.

Two urchins in a trenchcoat are your mysterious benefactors if you chose the persuasive route/weapon at the very beginning of the game.
Don't tell me that I had to travel to Flute street... I had the route, but I got the impression it wasn't needed, and the trip being so long, I didn't take the risk.

The precise requirements might be "A Bag of Fierce Mint Humbugs" (the Persuasive benefactor item) and "the Protégé of a Mysterious Benefactor 8" (indicating you've finished the story).

I don't have Heart's Desire, but my understanding was that you only need to have the Ambition.

If I recall correctly, it needs Visiting Flute Street 5. What that means, I don't know. The associated text says, "Don't fink I 'aven't seen you sneakin' down to Flute Street", which would imply that you need to have visited at least once.

[spoiler]The branch I played required no Bag of Fierce Mint Humbugs, so presumably the other option required them.

IIRC, Visiting Flute Street 5 is the point in the story where you actually embark for Flute Street. Possibly there could be another branch for Visiting 1-4, implying your character is aware of it but hasn't been there, but I doubt it.[/spoiler]

There also seems to be a bit of text only for Rat-Catchers (seeing every other profession in an unlock condition).

The option to [spoiler]tear down all the walls of your lodgings to find more of the rat nest[/spoiler]
is 'Unlocked when Profession - is: ...'
In the list that follows you can find every possible and impossible Profession, from Minor Poet to Unibishop,
with the exception of Rat-Catcher.

I haven't played the story, but if there are no other option, it sure means that there's an invisible one requiring Rat-Catcher.

Thanks!

Correct. I don't think either branch requires the Mysterious Benefactor quality at all, just the Bag or its absence.

I'm going off memory, but the branch I encountered checked both the Bag and the Mysterious Benefactor, since the revelation about the benefactor's identity (which is referenced) isn't until the end of the story.
