If Morrigan is permitted to research in Serault...

Morrigan takes up residence in Chateau Serault while she conducts her mysterious research. She occasionally encounters the Marquis of Serault and the two develop a limited rapport.

Morrigan leaves Serault two weeks prior to Divine Justinia V's arrival after completing the repairs on the Eluvian. As she departs she offers the Marquis of Serault her aid in gratitude.

If Morrigan is turned away by the Marquis of Serault...

Morrigan seemingly leaves Serault immediately, but the glassworks become haunted, hinting she works on repairing the Eluvian there regardless. Every attempt to investigate the source of the haunting fails, until one day the Marquis has a chance to send their soldiers in. Should they do it and the action succeeds, soldiers report they saw a figure changing into a spider. They shoot at the spider when it tries to flee, wounding it and finding a staff in the glassworks, which the Marquis claims as a trophy.

Description Edit

The Empress' 'occult advisor' is rarely seen about the château. She spends most of her time conducting her mysterious research at the glassworker's guild, but occasionally your paths cross.
