  • The Guard will mention that a Shade has managed to enter the village but no one has seen it except for a few key witnesses, including a kid that suddenly runs up to them claiming to of just seen it!
  • The Shade is apparently over at the river
  • So lets head on over to the Northern side of the village and to the bridge, this here is the river that the kid is referring to. Unfortunately though on closer inspection the Shade is not here
  • Return back to the girl who is still standing with the Guard you spoke to earlier
  • She will now claim that she saw it by the Library
  • After inspecting the Library courtyard you once again fail to notice anything out of the ordinary, hmm..
  • After being sent on a wild goose chase twice now, it is suggested that we try and ask someone else instead. Thus enter the village once again and speak to the Guard by the entrance exit nearest the water fountain
  • The Guard will tell you that he did indeed see the Shade and that it was being accompanied by a child.
  • There will also be a woman sitting by the water fountain that you can talk to, she will mention that the Shade was no bigger than a child. Curious…
  • Finally speak to the villager by the other entrance exit, she will mention that the Shade was spotted by the shopping district and only looked like a Shade if you squinted
  • After acquiring all of the necessary hints Grimoire Weiss will tell you to speak to the child once again
  • If you head to the North West you should be able to now find the mysterious Shade. It would seem that the child was trying to befriend it and protect it from harm
  • Return to the original Guard to end the quest
