Ser Otto will tell the Warden that he can sense an evil presence in the Alienage, and asks The Warden to look out for strange things. There are four signs that can be found. In front of the orphanage there is a pool of blood, a dead rabid dog, a feral dog and a deranged beggar. Interact with at least two of them and return to Otto. He will then accompany The Warden to the old orphanage. It is now haunted, and rabid Mabari and shades all attack. After fighting through these a demon appears. Once defeated, Otto will initially think that this will solve the problem. Yet another, more powerful demon awaits. This demon kills Otto before The Warden has a chance to defeat it. With the powerful demon sent back to the Fade, the threat is finally over.
Before leaving the orphanage, check in the chest of the last room to acquire an amulet which you can use to complete the mini-side quest Hearing Voices.
- If the Warden is a templar, you can say that you feel something too. This may depend on the previous dialog options.
- The title of the quest is almost certainly a reference to the Ray Bradbury novel named "Something Wicked This Way Comes". It is also a reference to Shakespeare's Macbeth (Act 4 scene 1, line 45) where the second witch declares, "by the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes."
- After defeating the Tormented Woman, she becomes clickable for a moment. Repeatedly clicking on her will cause her to say: "I cannot die!" over and over. If the player waits a few seconds after she is done talking, she will then vanish.
