SUBSTORY QUEST: The Spitfire Town Protector
CHAPTER: Chapter 6 – The Ikedaya Incident
QUEST GIVER: Timid Woman and Callous Man
REWARDS: 3 Ryo, 300 Virtue
LOCATION: Umekojicho (Rakugai)
Head to Umekojicho, east of the Chicken Racing. Here we will find a Timid Woman and a Callous Man
Upon inspection the Timid Woman will ask the Callous Man about the money she gave him earlier. To which he will mention that he somehow blew it all. Yikes.
Instead of apologizing the ‘Callous Idiot’ simply asks for another 20ryo. We also learn that the woman is known as Okiku.
The man (Bunkichi) will then introduce Okiku to a bunch of men, who will apparently, give them a loan. Yes, they do not look shady at all. Bunkichi will demand that Okiku takes the loan. That they need to in order to afford their ‘dream’.
An apparent ‘Badass Lady’ then comes in to stop anything deals being made. Her name is Yae. She confesses that Okiku is a client of hers. It is then summed up that Yae’s full name is actually Miss Tatsu. A debt collector.
We will then need to fight and defeat the Lowlife samurai. They clearly were never really going to help let us be honest here.
