Detailed WalkthroughEdit

Bishalus can be found standing behind some buildings on the east side of the Bal Foyen Dockyards. When spoken to, she will ask for your help, telling that she is terrified of nix-hounds and that her friend Gena made her a flute that was supposed to calm them down. To prove her point, Gena had headed up the path to the east, to play the flute to a pack of nix-hounds living on the cliffs there. Bishalus asks that you bring Gena back to her, whatever state she's in.

Head up the path and you'll come across Gena, who is injured and slumped down against a tree. She tells you that one of the hounds just ignored the flute and tried to eat her, and that she was only saved by the friendly nix-hound next to her. She says that the hound that attacked her has gone rabid and worries what would happen if it were to wander down to the docks. She asks you to put it down while she limps back down to the docks to Bishalus.

You can find the Rabid Nix-Hound further east along the path. It's slightly stronger that regular enemies, but shouldn't be too much of a challenge to kill. Afterwards, head back to the tree, where you'll find Bishalus kneeling next to Gena. Bishalus remarks that Gena is alive, even if injured, and gives you her thanks, along with a small amount of gold, to complete the quest.
