You are asked to retrieve the crystal bass. You can get this by fishing in the Spring on the east end of Jugner Forest (J-9). Or you can usually purchase it at the bazaar. Bring him the fish and he sends you to San'Doria Castle to deliver it. This leads to a cut scene. Talk to one more NPC (Chalvatot (F-7)) and you are finished.
--Area Southern San d'Oria-- Endracion: Welcome back! I have an important mission for you this time. Recently, land is eroding due to crystal formation...and it's getting worse. Endracion: There's a small spring on the eastern edge of Jugner Forest, called Crystwater Spring. We must know what effect crystal formation has on the wildlife there. Endracion: I want you to get me a fish from the spring. And not just any fish! You need to get a crystal bass. Endracion: That is all. You'll take the mission then? Endracion: Ah, that reminds me--have you any fishing gear? You'll need some for this mission. Endracion: There are people about that know a thing or two about fishing, should you need help finding and choosing your gear.
After getting your crystal bass.
Endracion: Hello there. Now's not the time for missions; Chateau d'Oraguille has been visited by bandits! Endracion: You must make haste to Chateau d'Oraguille! Find Lady Curilla, general of the Temple Knights!
--Area: Chateau d'Oraguille-- Halver: So, you're saying nothing was actually taken? Curilla: That is right, Lord Halver. I can see ransacking our treasure vaults, but the chambers of Leaute I d'Oraguille? What could they have been after? Halver: The chambers are as they were when the queen passed away. Might she have left something of importance? Curilla: Her jewelry all went untouched. It is possible that the thieves mistook the queen's chambers for another room. Halver: Hmm. However, it has come to my attention that a copy of the castle floor plans has been circulating outside the castle. Halver: If the thieves possess these floor plans, then perhaps they have motives other than just stealing treasure. Curilla: That may be true. But even with a copy of the castle floor plans, it would take a skilled thief indeed to hide from all the guards in the chateau. Curilla: And according to the gardener, our visitors were a party of two Elvaan...
Shamonde: It has come to my attention that thieves have ransacked the queen's chambers. Inform me immediately of what was stolen! Halver: Please be at ease, Your Holiness. The Temple Knights have determined that the thieves stole nothing from the chateau. Shamonde: Preposterous! If so, why did the thieves ender in the first place? Maybe the queen had something hidden... Curilla: Pardon me, Your Holiness, but what do you mean by "something"? Shamonde: If I knew, I wouldn't be asking you! But thieves would not enter without a purpose! Halver: Of course, Your Holiness! I will order the Temple Knights to continue their investigation, and have them inform you if they find anything. Shamonde: I shall be waiting for your report. Hmph! Not even the Goddess Altana will forgive such a crime! Curilla: Hmm? It seems as if we have a visitor.
Curilla: You were sent to stop the thieves? Well, as you can see, they have already escaped. Curilla: Considering we know nothing of the thieves, it would be futile to send out a search party. Curilla: However, an adventurer such as yourself would have connections in many places than we. Curilla: Inquire with the gardener. He is the only one who saw the thieves. He many tell you something of importance.
Chalvatot: Ah, I know you. You're the adventurer ____. You want to know about the thieves that broke into the queen's chambers? Chalvatot: Well, I didn't see anything special. All I saw was two suspicious lookin' Elvaan. When I yelled at 'em, they ran off. That be all. Chalvatot: But I swear I seen me one before... The one with blue armor... Claidie: Chalvatot, what has happened in my mother's chambers? Claidie: When I went to give some water to the flowers, I pssed by some Temple Guards. Chalvatot: I am so sorry, Your Highness! Last night, some thieves broke into the late queen's chambers! Chalvatot: And to make matters worse, the scoundrels are still on the loose! Oh, what has become of the once mighty Chateau d'Oraguille? Claidie: I--I do not know what to say... Claidie: I knew something was wrong when I found mother's diary in a strange place... Chalvatot: Your Highness? You say you saw something out of the ordinary? Claidie: Chalvatot, something is amiss... Could you please come to my chambers later? Claidie: Farewell, Lady ____. May you find the thieves that disgraced our great kingdom.
