50 XP / 3,000 Credits

Meet with Grizz

After completing the dossier missions on Omega (The Professor and Archangel), pay a visit to Afterlife. Grizz, one of Aria’s bodyguards will speak with you and ask you to get the Patriarch into hiding. The Patriarch is a cranky old Krogan who can be found in the VIP section of Afterlife (go through the door beneath Aria’s lounge and follow the path).

Help the Patriarch

As you enter the VIP area, head around the bar to the left; there is a door in the left wall and another straight ahead. If you go through the left-hand door, you’ll find the Patriarch inside. Speak with him and either convince him to leave or tell him you’ll protect him. Afterwards you’ll need to go and hunt down some thugs.

As you leave the Patriarch’s room, turn left and go through the door immediately in front of you to initiate a scene with the thugs on the other side. Once the scene has played out, return to the Patriarch and speak to him again. Now that everything has been resolved, return to Grizz who will direct you to Aria. Speak with her to complete this assignment.
