"I fear she's been eaten by nix-hounds. I'm terrified of them. She made me a flute. Said it would calm them. To prove her point, she went up the trail behind me. A pack of beasts lives up there."

WalkthroughEdit

The quest is initiated from Bishalus, at the east end of the Bal Foyen Dockyards, near the supply tunnel used during "If By Sea."

Bishalus II

Bishalus, desperairing at the trail's foot.

"You look brave... brave like my Gena. Please. Help me?"

What's wrong? "I fear she's been eaten by nix-hounds. I'm terrified of them. She made me a flute. Said it would calm them. To prove her point, she went up the trail behind me. A pack of beasts lives up there."
I can try to find her. "Or what's left of her. Whatever state she's in, please bring her back."
I will. "How could I have let her do this? Oh, Gena!"
Why did she want to prove herself? "Sometimes, Gena's a strange girl. She's a master crafter. In fact, she thinks she's one of the best woodcarvers on the coast. I think she wanted to show off for me. Silly girl."

Follow the path up the mountain behind Bishalus to the southeast. Gena will be found sitting leaning against a tree on the right side of the path, with a tame Nix-Hound named Puddin.

Gena Omarys II

Gena, laying wounded under a tree.

"It just ignored the flute. If this nix-hound hadn't saved me, I would have been eaten."

What happened? Bishalus is worried about you. "I must have worried her terribly. Please, the hound that attacked me it's... sick. It's rabid."
Where did it go? "Further up the path. If it wanders down to the docks... My wound might be infected. If you can take care of the hound, I'll limp back to Bishalus."
I'll kill it.

"Please, kill it quickly." (New greeting.)

After the Vestige defeats the rabid nix-hound, they may return to Gena and find Bishalus kneeling beside her. Speaking to Bishalus will then end the quest.

Bard of Hounds II

Gena and Bishalus, reunited.

"She's alive... hurt and frightened, but alive."

Good to see she's safe. "I have little to offer by way of reward, other than my thanks. I doubt you'll remember two simple fishermen, but we'll never forget you."
