  • Lyse has never been one to ignore her conscience.
  • Though you saved Wercrata from a grisly end at the hands─or more accurately the jaws─of the Qiqirn, you barely had a moment to speak with him before he fled the Ziggurat, exclaiming that he had to deliver the tributum in his care to the imperials. Needless to say, Lyse is reluctant to let him go, and insists that you follow the poor man─not to interfere, but simply to see that he makes it safely to his destination.
  • You spy a feather in the dirt, which Meffrid confirms is from Wercrata's chocobo. By his reckoning, the villager headed west past a collapsed bridge. Fortunately, there are plenty of places from which you should be able to observe Wercrata discreetly...
  • From a distance, you observe Wercrata meeting with the Skulls─a unit of Ala Mhigan conscripts, judging by their accents. The encounter soon turns violent, with the soldiers beating the prostrate villager while simultaneously berating him for defying the imperials and giving them reason to mistrust all Ala Mhigans. Unable to bear the injustice, Lyse rises to intervene but is stopped by Meffrid, who tells her that saving the man would only invite reprisals against his family, if not his whole village. For a mercy, the Skulls' commander eventually orders them to stop, as they are needed elsewhere. Wercrata will live to see another day.
  • It sickens Meffrid to the soul to see his countrymen doing the bidding of the viceroy. But they have made their choice, and he is prepared to cut down every last one of them if it comes to it.

Listen, Forename, Meffrid... I think we need to go after Wercrata.
Wait─you had better not be thinking of stopping him! You heard what he said─if they don't pay one way, they'll pay another!
I know that, I do, and I don't want to interfere! I just...I just want to see that he makes it there safely.
...If that's the sum of it, then fine. Let's head down and see if we can't pick up his trail.
Quest Accepted
Aan like him are barely considered people under imperial rule. They're to work hard and pay their taxes, and if they don't, there'll be seven hells to pay. Beatings, imprisonment, enslavement─and as for your womenfolk, well...

In the dirt, you spy a chocobo feather...

Any luck?

A chocobo feather, is it? Aye, by my reckoning, it came from Wercrata's bird, in which case...

There's a collapsed bridge just around the bend. Hug the rocks and stick to the shadows. We'll find him soon enough.

Upon closer inspection, you find nothing of interest...

Upon closer inspection, you find nothing of interest...

Any minute now, I expect he'll come thundering 'round the bend and─ Hear that? Get to cover, quickly now!

Can they really see us all the way up there in the tower?

I'd heard their commander was keen-eyed but gods, that was a near thing...

It tears me up inside to see our own kinsmen doing the bidding of the viceroy. But they made their choice, and if it comes to it, I'll cut down every last one of them myself.
Quest Completed
We...we could've done something, instead of just...of just letting it happen...
