I recently received word from William Allerton, a family friend, that my brother enlisted here in Valiance Keep on the same day he did. Thing is... my brother's been dead for years.
I sold everything I owned to come looking for Thassarian, only to be stonewalled by the local bureaucracy. I've even been threatened with arrest if I keep snooping around.
I need someone in the good graces of the higher-ups... someone like you. If you can help me, I heard that William's stationed at the Farshire mine.
The corpse matches the description that Leryssa gave you of William Allerton. Oddly enough, there are no bite or claw marks on him.
