|Chapter 2-3||Victors Hollow||4,800 Leaves, Refreshing Jam|
In the southern section of Victors Hollow, there is a Listless Gladiator in front of the tavern. His passion for fighting has waned, but a child admires him greatly and he wants to dissuade the child from following in his footsteps. There are two solutions to this Side Story, although one is a lot easier than the other. For the first one, you can simply defeat the Gladiator in a duel (Challenge/Provoke), although this is definitely the more challenging of the two options. The reason for this is because the Gladiator has a strength of nine, packs a punch with some physical attacks, and is only weak to elements (fire, ice, wind and darkness).
Since rewards don't differ depending on the solution done with these Side Stories, it's best to go with the second option. For this one, you will need either Cyrus or Alfyn in your active party. Once you have either of them, Inquire/Scrutinize the Doting Aunt to the immediate west of the Gladiator, to obtain the Father and Fighter information. Share this information with the Gladiator to complete the quest.
