Suggested Level: 11
This quest - like the previous ones - can be found southwest of the Great Library, in an otherwise non-descript house. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you hear a woman shouting about somebody named Aristo. Head on inside and talk to the woman, who will spill her grievance, which centers around a bit of plagiarism - and subsequent legal action - taken by a man named Eudoros. Your job? Rescue her husband Aristo so they can flee this wretched city.
After Bayek is done chatting with the woman, make your way southeast to the search area. Send Senu up into the air and scan for your target, which in this case happens to be mobile, as Aristo is currently be carted around in a cage drawn by a chariot. The difficulty of this next part is variable, as like in the quest “A Tithe By Another Name” random guards on patrol may complicate matters. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a break in their patrols and you’ll merely have to deal with one guard (level 11) standing on the back of the chariot, who can be easily shot down with a Light Bow while mounted. If there are more guards present… well, still focus on the chariot first, to stop it (it’ll stop when the guard onboard is killed), then deal with the other guards.
Once the coast is clear, dismount, get in the cage, and talk to Aristo, who claims to have a broken hip. It’s just an excuse to keep the NPC sedentary so you have to grab him, put him on your mount, and take him to the get-away ship, which can be found at the southern docks. With any luck the rest of the trip will be uneventful, in which case simply ride Aristo to the boat, take him off your mount, carry him onto the ship, and set him down. Talk to him to end the quest. Easy experience.
