The Friar's Niece[edit]

Before The Friar's Niece is bestowed:

  • Friar Renau: Pardon, good <sir/lady>. I am Friar Renau. You are not with the Church of the Silver Flame, are you?
  • Friar Renau: I could use the assistance of someone from outside. It is my niece, Marguerite. Of late, her letters have grown strange. Now they have stopped altogether!
  • Friar Renau: She is in the Sanctuary, inside the Silver Flame Catacombs. Marguerite's room is at one of the ends of the Northern Wing. Find her and see that she's safe, I beg you!
    • You: I will go to this Sanctuary and ask after her. (Bestow chain)
    • You: What is this Sanctuary?
      • Friar Renau: Marguerite is... "touched," as they say.
      • Friar Renau: But the Sanctuary is falsely named. The Silver Flame Church puts people there to forget them.
        • You: I will go to this Sanctuary and ask after her. (Bestow chain)
        • You: She is mad, you mean.
          • Friar Renau: No, no.
          • Friar Renau: Marguerite's mind is strong, but fragile. It is difficult to explain, but she is no raving madwoman.
          • Friar Renau: She is different. Special.
            • You: All right. I'll go to this Sanctuary and ask after her. (Bestow chain)
    • You: Can't you get help from the Church?
      • Friar Renau: It's... complicated.
      • Friar Renau: Marguerite is in the place they call the Sanctuary. But it is falsely named. The Church puts people there to forget them.
      • Friar Renau: Marguerite is... "touched," as they say.
        • You: I will go to this Sanctuary and ask after her. (Bestow chain)
        • You: She is mad, you mean. (See above)
        • You: You believe that someone in the Church has harmed her?
          • Friar Renau: No, no.
          • Friar Renau: I am sure she is fine, but... I would prefer if someone could make certain.
            • You: I'll go to the Sanctuary and ask after her. (Bestow chain)
    • You: Can't you go, yourself?
      • Friar Renau: The Sanctuary is forbidden to me.
      • Friar Renau: I would need the permission of Archbishop Dryden, and I would not get it.
      • Friar Renau: I am afraid I am not in his favor right now.
        • You: I'll go to the Sanctuary and ask after her. (Bestow chain)

After The Friar's Niece is bestowed but before completion:

  • Friar Renau: The Sanctuary is on the first level of the Catacombs.
  • Friar Renau: Such a strange place to help the feeble-minded, but a good place to lose them...
    • You: I'll return when I have word of Marguerite. Good day.

Return to the Sanctuary[edit]

After completion of The Friar's Niece:

  • Friar Renau: You found Marguerite? She was there?
    • You: I found a note from her addressed to her father. Everyone else was killed by undead.
      • Friar Renau: Undead? The Catacombs are consecrated by the Silver Flame! How is this possible?
      • Friar Renau: Wait, Marguerite wrote a note to her father? To my knowledge, they have not spoken in years. Why now?
      • Friar Renau: I must ask another favor of you. Marguerite's father is the Archbishop Dryden. Go to Dryden's Chamber inside the Catacombs, and tell him what has happened. Warn him about the undead!
        • You: All right, I'll go warn the Archbishop. (Advance chain)
          • Friar Renau: Dryden's Chamber is on the highest layer of the Catacombs.
          • Friar Renau: When you meet him, think carefully before you speak. He has the wit of a magewright and the memory of a confessor.
        • You: Why can't you go yourself?
          • Friar Renau: Dryden and I are well acquainted, I'm afraid. His guards have standing orders to throw me out.
            • You: All right, I'll go warn the Archbishop. (Advance chain)
        • You: I have no time for this. Let the Silver Flame handle its own affairs. (Walk away)
          • Friar Renau: What of the innocents in the Sanctuary? What of Marguerite? Please, reconsider!

In case you refuse, if you talk to him again, he will say:

  • Friar Renau: You have changed your mind?
  • Friar Renau: Will you go to Dryden's Chamber and tell the Archbishop about Marguerite, about the undead?
    • You: Yes. I will warn Archbishop Dryden. (Advance chain)
    • You: Tell him yourself. Good day. (Walk away)

After To Find a Witness is bestowed but before completion of To Find a Witness: Archbishop Dryden:

  • Friar Renau: Go quickly to Dryden's Chamber in the Catacombs. The Archbishop should be told about the undead... and about his daughter, even if he has not seen fit to speak to her in years.

After completion of To Find a Witness: Archbishop Dryden but before completion of To Find a Witness: Return to the Sanctuary:

  • Friar Renau: You spoke to him, to Dryden? Is he sending soldiers to find Marguerite?
    • You: No. He is sending me.
      • Friar Renau: You? You alone?
      • Friar Renau: But... forgive me. I'm sure you're formidable, but that is very strange.
        • You: Dryden must have his reasons. ]
          • Friar Renau: Of course. Of course, he must...
        • You: Don't worry. She'll be fine.
          • Friar Renau: I will pray for you, my friend. May the Flame light your way, and the Voice guide your steps.

After completion of To Find a Witness: Return to the Sanctuary but before returning to Archbishop Dryden:

  • Friar Renau: You have been in my prayers, <name>. Have you... have you heard anything more of Marguerite?
    • You: She has learned to use a power called the Duality.
      • Friar Renau: Oh no... that is terrible news.
        • You: What do you know about the Duality?
          • Friar Renau: Almost nothing.
          • Friar Renau: But I remember Gerard Dryden -- the Archbishop's uncle. I remember the terrible things he preached, and the even more terrible things he did.
          • Friar Renau: I thought that Gerard's secrets were buried with him ...
            • You: Marguerite never spoke of this?
              • Friar Renau: Never! This is so unlike her!
              • Friar Renau: Marguerite had... a rich inner life, you might say. It was the little things that mattered to her. My letters. Her father's love and approval.
              • Friar Renau: Not magic or power!
            • You: They weren't buried deep enough, apparently.
              • Friar Renau: Marguerite never even knew Gerard. How could she have learned of the Duality? It is so strange ...
        • You: Yes. But I have no more time for talk.
          • Friar Renau: May the light of the Flame go with you.
    • You: No, and stop pestering me.
      • Friar Renau: I'm sorry my faith offends you. The bishops have warned me not to speak so openly to strangers.
    • You: Nothing yet. But I will find her, I promise.
      • Friar Renau: It is no accident that led you here. I will pray for your safety, and for Marguerite's.

The Old Archives[edit]

After Duality is bestowed but before completion of The Old Archives:

  • Friar Renau: You have been in my prayers, <name>. I pray you can save Marguerite.

After completion of The Old Archives but before returning to Archbishop Dryden:

  • Friar Renau: You have been in my prayers, <name>. I pray you can save Marguerite.

The Crypt of Gerard Dryden[edit]

Setting the Wards: The Lower Cathedral & The Patriarchs' Crypt[edit]

After The Patriarchs' Crypt is bestowed but before completion of Setting the Wards: The Patriarchs' Crypt:

  • Friar Renau: Do you have news of Marguerite? I have heard nothing from the Catacombs. No rumors, no mutterings...
    • You: Marguerite may be using the corpses of long-dead priests to feed her power. We are trying to stop her.
      • Friar Renau: I'm afraid such things are beyond me. But if you confront her... be merciful.
      • Friar Renau: Marguerite is not evil. You must believe that, no matter what else you hear.
    • You: I think the Archbishop is trying to keep things quiet.
      • Friar Renau: That has always been his way... to hide troubles and to deal with them alone. His career is everything to him. I cannot understand it.
      • Friar Renau: But then, I suppose that is why he is an Archbishop, and I am still a simple friar.

Endgame: Marguerite[edit]

After Archbishop's Daughter is bestowed but before completion of Endgame: Marguerite:

  • Friar Renau: What is wrong? Has something happened?
    • You: The undead have broken into the main Catacombs. Dryden asked me to go and confront Marguerite.
      • Friar Renau: Please be merciful!
      • Friar Renau: I cannot believe that Marguerite has turned to evil -- something else is at work here. May the Flame light your path....

Endgame: The Archbishop's Fate[edit]

After completion of Endgame: Marguerite but before returning to Archbishop Dryden whether or not you chose to fight Marguerite:

  • Friar Renau: Marguerite was here! Her spirit is still in this world!
    • You: I can't talk now. I'll return when I've dealt with Dryden.

After completion of Endgame: The Archbishop's Fate whether or not you chose to fight Marguerite:

  • Friar Renau: Marguerite was here! Her spirit is still in this world.
  • Friar Renau: And with Arkasic destroyed, the Archbishop will recover. You are a hero, though the Church will never speak of it. The Flame guards its secrets at all costs.
  • Friar Renau: I have been entrusted with a sizable reward for you. But if you ever speak of these events to anyone, the Church will deny them.
    • You: I'm not concerned with fame. I know I've done what's right.
      • Friar Renau: Do you? It seems absurd to me, hiding the truth while professing to be a beacon of righteousness.
      • Friar Renau: But I am no Church elder. They have their reasons, I expect.
      • Friar Renau: What matters to me is that you saved Marguerite. For that, no reward is large enough.
        • You: I'll take that reward then, and be on my way.
          • Friar Renau: You have my thanks—and Marguerite's as well. May the Flame light your path.
        • You: There are still some things I don't understand (See below)
    • You: Is it wise for the Silver Flame to simply pretend this didn't happen?
      • Friar Renau: I am no Church elder, but they have their reasons.
      • Friar Renau: What matters to me is that you saved Marguerite. For that, no reward is large enough.
        • You: I'll take that reward then, and be on my way.
          • Friar Renau: You have my thanks -- and Marguerite's as well. May the Flame light your path.
        • You: There are still some things I don't understand. (See below)
    • You: There are still some things I don't understand.
      • Friar Renau: Of course! Marguerite explained much to me.
        • You: Where has Marguerite gone?
          • Friar Renau: There are hiding places, far from here.
          • Friar Renau: Her condition is terrible, but she might be restored, with the Flame's grace. I pray she will learn to control and overcome her new power.
            • You: I have another question. (See above "There are still some...")
        • You: What did Arkasic Dryden want with the Duality?
          • Friar Renau: Arkasic was the Archbishop's own brother.
          • Friar Renau: He believed he'd been denied advancement because of his family name. Perhaps he was right.
          • Friar Renau: When he exhausted all legitimate means, he turned to the very thing that had stained his family -- the Duality. He pursued it even after death through the Archbishop.
            • You: I have another question. (See above "There are still some...")
        • You: Why did Arkasic experiment on Marguerite?
          • Friar Renau: She was easy to manipulate and she could move about the Sanctuary unnoticed.
          • Friar Renau: And who listens to the ravings of a madwoman?
          • Friar Renau: But Marguerite was too clever for that. When she realized she was being used, she embraced the Duality. It made her into a wraith.
          • Friar Renau: She tried to ruin her father, not knowing he was a puppet as well. She was out of control, so Arkasic hoped that you would destroy her. Fortunately, you did not act as he anticipated.
            • You: I have another question. (See above "There are still some...")
        • You: Why did Arkasic send me, with all the Silver Flame soldiers at his command?
          • Friar Renau: If he used Church soldiers to pursue Marguerite, he could not hide what he was doing.
          • Friar Renau: You were unknown. He could send you to destroy her and then kill you, and no one would ever know what happened.
          • Friar Renau: I'm sure that Arkasic had no idea how dangerous of a <class> you are.
            • You: I have another question. (See above "There are still some...")
        • You: I'd like to take my reward now, and I shall be on my way. (See above)
          • Friar Renau: You have my thanks -- and Marguerite's as well. May the Flame light your path.

After taking the chain reward for The Catacombs story arc:

  • Friar Renau: You look well, my friend! It is good to see you again.
