Deliver Shorleck's letter to Shawster. Report to Shorleck and discover the truth. Shorleck has solved the case. Give his letter containing the truth to Shawster.
Shorleck announced that he had solved the case. He asked you to take a letter containing his findings to his client, Shawster.
When Shawster read the letter, he behaved very oddly. He told you to give Shorleck a cryptic message. When you returned to Shorleck, he confirmed that Shawster was behind his wife's and assistant's disappearances.
He thanked you, and also told you that the area mentioned by Shawster had to be searched for signs of the missing couple.

Now, it's time to bring down the curtain on this little drama.
I shall write a letter to Shawster explaining my deductions, and what I think should be done next.
While I'm doing that, do you have any thoughts on this case?
Ah, very intelligent. I also dislike speaking of my deductions before they're confirmed.
Here's the letter. Please deliver it to Shawster personally.
Oh, and be sure to let him know Centurion Brynhild will contact him soon.
I would like to request you not open the letter. Wouldn't want Shawster to think it'd been tampered with, now do we?
Return here after you make the delivery. On your way back, muse on the case. I'll explain all when you come back.
There are lives at stake here. Please fly as fast as your wings will take you.
Ah, young Daeva! You're back already!
Has Shorleck solved the case? Does he know what happened to Iliene?
My concern grows with each passing hour! Please tell me you have good news.
A letter? Oh, yes, yes! Now let's see.... What? This is outrageous! This is...is...Centurion Brynhild? Then...I see.
Heh. Hahahahaha! I knew I shouldn't have underestimated him! So his reputation truly is deserved!
I suppose there's no use hiding it anymore. Give Shorleck my congratulations, and tell him it's where Skraw dwells.
I see you understand the truth now. Yes, Shawster is responsible for Iliene's disappearance, and Maron's as well.
An old man with a young wife and a handsome assistant about her age.... A volatile combination. His story was a lie, of course.
That is what gave him away. The grass was trodden on, not by a woman's foot, but by something much heavier...like an artificial leg. And the stains he left behind resembled blood but were actually an herbal dye made from plants only found near Shawster's home.
Where Skraw dwells.... The fiend! That is where he is keeping his wife and assistant!
The Gryphu there will rip them apart. Centurion Brynhild must be told to search that area at once.
All in all, Shawster's biggest mistake was hiring me in order to divert suspicion. And turning to you to be his messenger. I thank you for your able assistance.
