You! You're that guest Master Matoya was telling us about. Please, you have to help me!

I've searched high and low, but I can't find my friend Karnes anywhere. I fear he's run off to Fort Gohn again.

It's where we grew up, but it was abandoned years ago after the sin eaters attacked.

The place is teeming with all manner of beasts now, and Master Matoya has expressly forbidden anyone from setting foot there.

I don't know what's gotten into him lately, but we have to find him, before he gets hurt. If you should find him first, you'll want to tell him our password─tuktu. He's the skittish sort, so don't delay in telling him so he'll know you mean no harm.
S-Stay away! I beg of you!

You... You're from Slitherbough? Varthon must have sent you, then.

I was fine until that damned beetle. It's only a scratch, but I'm starting to feel numb, and my vision's grown clouded.

Worst of all, I dropped my only vial of serum somewhere in these damned woods. Could you find it for me?

The vial should be somewhere close by.
So you came back after all.
There you are. Did you find it?
Thank you. I should be fine now after a bit of rest.
What were you thinking coming back here? You could've been killed!
I had to, Varthon. For my father...
