This is part of a first-playthrough guide using the Faerie story arc. It covers both the original PSX version and the 2021 HD remaster, though some place and item names differ slightly in the latter. You can find an overview of the Faerie% path here.
The Quick Version
Place the Broken Doll Artifact you got from your previous quest. Now return to Gato Grottoes and speak to Matilda in the Dreamweaving Room of the Temple of Healing. Agree to look for Daena and the quest will begin.
To find Daena, go to Lake Kilma and travel to the cliff to speak with Tote the Turtle. On your way back from the cliff, you’ll encounter Daena. Hear what she has to say, then follow her to learn more about the mysterious Lord Irwin and the realm of the Faeries. Lots of dialogue / backstory in this one, but no new Artifacts.
The Details (May Contain Spoilers)
When you first get to Lake Kilma for this quest, you’ll be following the same route as you did in The Gorgon Eye. That’s
- left to the Southern Woods
- left, then upper right to the Southern Shore
- right, then lower right to In the Woods (HD: Wooded Paths)
- right, upper right to the Eastern Shore
- right, upper right again to Northern Shore
- upper left, left to the Cliff Overlooking the Lake (HD: Lakeside Cliff)
Now talk to Tote. It doesn’t matter how you answer his question, but keep talking until he mentions “a lady” (that’d be Daena) who came to the lake asking about the Faeries.
Backtrack right, right to meet Daena. Again, it doesn’t matter what you say here; eventually she’ll wander off. Follow her to the lower left, down, left and you’ll witness a scene with Irwin.
After the scene, go lower left, left to encounter a boss (Boreal Hound) and conclude the quest.
