Completing this quest concludes your initiation into the Order of Whispers and displays the appropriate account medal on the character selection screen.

Walkthrough[edit]

Travel south of Lion's Arch to Stormbluff Isle in Bloodtide Coast and enter the story instance (be careful, the instance is in a 45-50 zone, so to get there, you might have to run through level 45 drakes).

Speak with Tybalt and Demmi to learn about the plan. Eventually, Commander Landon will arrive with allies and attack after a brief conversation. Kill him and his allies to complete this part of the quest. They are not very difficult foes in the first place, but Tybalt's "apple barrels" explode after a certain amount of time, dealing enough damage to kill all of the ordinary foes on their own.

Leave the instance and travel to the back of the nearby cave where the next quest instance is. This takes you to the Chantry of Secrets where you must speak with the Preceptors. After a dialog, speak with Riel Darkwater to choose a tribal race to assist. (The choice of tribal races depends on your character's race, and is detailed under racial sympathy)

Dialogue[edit]

At Stormbluff Isle[edit]

Upon arrival at Stormbluff Isle:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Landon's still following us. Are you sure you want to do this, Demmi?
Demmi Beetlestone: Absolutely, Never been more sure of anything in my life.

Cinematic with Demmi and Tybalt:

Demmi Beetlestone: Commander Landon won't give up, will he? He'll keep searching for me until I'm dead.
Demmi Beetlestone: The Order of Whispers can protect me, but only if they lock me up like a prisoner.
Demmi Beetlestone: I'm tired of being someone else's pawn. I can't live like that. It's time to stop running.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: The Order is willing to relocate you, Demmi. We can give you a new life.
Demmi Beetlestone: Do you really think there's anywhere in Tyria that my father can't reach? He even has spies in the Black Citadel.
Demmi Beetlestone: Anyway, what good would a new life be while the dragons destroy Tyria? I can't just sit idle while the world burns.
<Character name>: So what are you going to do, Demmi?
Demmi Beetlestone: I know I could go into the Chantry and vanish anyway. Or, the order could bring a hundred agents out here to kill Landon and his men.
Demmi Beetlestone: Neither of those things will set me free. I have to stand up to Landon myself. I have to show my father that he can't manipulate me.
<Character name>: I think you're right, Demmi. It's time for you to make a stand. Tybalt and I will help you.

Talking to your allies:

Demmi Beetlestone: I've made my choice. I'm going to join the Order of Whispers. I can't just sit idly by anymore.
Talk quest option tango.png
You've seen a lot of bad things, Demmi. I'm glad you're taking a stand.
(Sylvari only)
Talk quest option tango.png
I don't know what having a father would be like, but...I empathize.
My father taught me more than he knew, and I'm going to turn all of those lessons to benefit the Order.
Talk quest option tango.png
Do you think we can defeat him? Save Queen Jennah and Kryta?
I hope so. The queen is a good woman, and we humans are a strong folk. We just have to take it one challenge at a time.
Talk quest option tango.png
Speaking of challenges: are you ready to confront Landon?
I am. I'll start with him--and when I'm done, Kryta will be free of my father's influence. You'll see.
Talk end option tango.png
Then the Order will stand beside you.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Thanks for being so understanding. I know that our partership is new, but...this has really been great.
Talk quest option tango.png
I agree. We work well together, Tybalt.
I hope...I mean, if you wanted to... Oh, nevermind.
Talk quest option tango.png
To work with you again? I'd love to.
Oh yeah? Really? That's great! Hey, wow. That's great of you. So, was there anything you needed to know?
Talk more option tango.png
Sure. What's our plan?
An ambush that Landon and his crew won't forget. You'll see.
Talk back option tango.png
Okay. I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png
I look forward to it.
Talk more option tango.png
Why all the apple barrels? Are they part of the plan?
They look real, right? Totally scrumptuous? Good, good.
Talk back option tango.png
Okay. I have another question.
Talk end option tango.png
I'll just wait and see, then.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm ready when you are.

Preparing for the ambush:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Hey, Demmi? Got a moment?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: If you're fighting, you'll need a weapon. Take my rifle. Ever fire one?
Demmi Beetlestone: Benn tried to show me once, and I nearly shot his ear off.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: (laugh) You're going to be just fine, kiddo.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Here they come. Commander Landon and his bully boys.
Demmi Beetlestone: I...I'm ready.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Don't be frightened. When you stand with the Order of Whispers, you never stand alone.

When Commander Landon arrives:

Ministry Commander Landon: There's nowhere left to run, Lady Beetlestone. Surrender or die.
Ministry Commander Landon: Did you think you could hide from me on some remote island? You're under arrest, Lady Beetlestone.
Demmi Beetlestone: Tell my father I'm not his little girl anymore. I'm free, Landon. Free of him - and free of you.
Ministry Commander Landon: Lady Beetlestone, if you think a few apple barrels will stop me, you're going to be disappointed.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Landon, you've got two disappointments coming. First, Demmi's not going back with you. Second...
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: These aren't apple barrels!

During the fight:

Ministry Commander Landon: These spies have had a terrible influence on you. Especially ones like this filthy, crippled charr and his flunky.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: My name is Tybalt Leftpaw, Lightbringer of the Order of Whispers, and that's Agent to you!
Demmi Beetlestone: Landon, you dog, tell my father that you failed. I'll never let you capture me alive.
Ministry Commander Landon: I die... for Kryta.

Cinematic after the fight:

Demmi Beetlestone: I can't thank you two enough. You saved my life - and you've given me purpose. I'll never be a pawn again.
Demmi Beetlestone: I'm going to join the Order of Whispers, and become a real operative. In time, I'll do what you do - help to save the world.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: You'll be a great agent someday, Demmi. For now, the information you can give the Order will save a lotta lives.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Head into the cave. There's a lightbringer inside waiting for you. Maybe we'll meet again someday.
<Character name>: Tybalt, I think I still owe you an apple cider.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: That you do, buddy. But we've got one last thing on our agenda. The Preceptors have asked to see you.
<Character name>: The Preceptors? Who are they?
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: The three preceptors lead the Order. They work for the Master of Whispers. His identity is kept secret, to protect us all.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: If they want to see you, it must be big. But don't worry. I'll be by your side.

Advancement


Savant,

It's become very obvious to me that you're rapidly advancing your chosen Order. As it should be. You were always the brightest student in your college, you'll do no less well there.

I've heard a most interesting rumor that some of Snaff's technology has been sold in Kryta; to a ridiculous human named Uzolan. He's going to unveil it as his own at some sort of party, at the Legate Minister's estate in Beetletun. I plan to stop him. Of course, this means I'll likely run afoul of that fool Logan, who has gone back to his Queen, but who cares? At least Rytlock and Eir are off in Ascalon, searching for the ghost of some dead king's sword. More power to them on their waste of time.

In any case, I'll see what I find in Kryta, and get back to you. Feel free to meet me there, if you find yourself hoping for a little change of pace.

Debriefing


Centurion,

I've received a report that you've done well within the Order. I knew you would. Victory is engineered into your bones, your very blood. It is why we are such good friends. We are very much alike.

You may have heard that I've intercepted Eir, advancing into their ghost-filled city of Ascalon. Zojja still fights for Snaff's legacy, while Caithe roams the Caledon Forest, keeping her own counsel. As for Logan...the fool's returned to Kryta. To his Queen. The Legions have sent an ambassador to meet with Jennah and work towards the peace treaty. I wish them well, but I cannot pretend that any peace will last, so long as the dragons continue to rise.

There is more to do, if we are to save the world, and very little time to accomplish our task. You will hear from me again. Soon.

—Rytlock

Logan Thackeray

Congratulations


Word is spreading that you're quickly making yourself invaluable to your Order. I'm pleased to see that you're having so much success outside Kryta. I've heard that Rytlock and Eir have been investigating the Ascalonean
[sic]
catacombs. Zojja still fights for Snaff's legacy, while Caithe roams the Caledon Forest, keeping her own counsel. Perhaps this whole thing was a mistake. I've spent my time considering what to do about Destiny's Edge, and to be honest, I'm not sure the situation can be salvaged. I made a choice to save Jennah; a choice I don't regret. So long as she needs me, I have to be there for her. If you need me, I will be attending a party at Legate Minister Caudecus's estate near Beetletun. The Queen may be in danger from that old spider, and I don't intend to allow him to succeed in stealing her throne.

—Logan

Eir Stegalkin

Hail, my friend!


Tales of your recent deeds have reached as far as Hoelbrak, and the servants of your Order speak highly of the many things you have done. Already you prove that my faith in you is well-placed.

As for myself, I have been traveling. I've been investigating the legend of a powerful sword, the match to Rytlock's, that may yet exist within the catacombs of Ascalon. Zojja still fights for Snaff's legacy, while Caithe roams the Caledon Forest, keeping her own counsel. I hear Logan's returned to Kryta. I suppose I should not be surprised. He fears for his Queen's safety, and rightly so. There are many who seek to destroy the treaty between the charr and the humans. We must stop them if we are to succeed in saving Tyria from the dragons.

You are doing well, Slayer. Continue on your path, and you will hear from me again very soon.

—Eir

Caithe

Whispers in the Dream


Valiant,
I've intercepted reports that you are doing well. Your Order praises you highly. This is for the best. We must unify. We must unify, or Tyria will blacken and die.
Eir and Rytlock search the catacombs for lost power. Zojja still fights for Snaff's legacy, while Logan falls back to Kryta—and to his Queen. I do not understand why they cannot move forward, why they are so obsessed with the past. How can we make them focus on the future? If they do not, it will soon escape us forever, and the dragons will succeed.

I must follow them. I have to watch, and understand. There is too much at risk for us to fail.

—Caithe

Approaching the Whispers Agent:

Whispers Agent: Greetings, Initiate. The Preceptors are expecting you.
Whispers Agent: You're free to enter the antechamber. Your friend Tybalt is waiting for you there.
Whispers Agent bows to <Character name>.
Whispers Agent bows to <Character name>.

Cinematic upon approaching the Preceptors:

Halvora Snapdagger: Welcome to the Chantry of Secrets, Initiate.
Halvora Snapdagger: My name is Halvora. Doern, Valenze, and I are the Preceptors. We guide the Order of Whispers.
Halvora Snapdagger: Riel is our attache, and of course, you know Lightbringer Tybalt. He speaks very highly of you.
<Character name>: Our operation succeeded, Preceptor. Demmi is safe, and soon we'll have enough information on Caudecus to keep him under wraps for good.
Halvora Snapdagger: You've both done exceptionally well. Tybalt, we've decided to keep you on field duty.
Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: Really? You mean it? I'm going to keep working in the field? I'm going to keep working in the field! Yeah!
Halvora Snapdagger: As for you, Initiate, we're promoting you to full agent, and permanently assigning you and Tybalt as partners. Congratulations.
Halvora Snapdagger: And with that in mind, it's time for your next assignment. Riel, give the agent a quick briefing.
Riel Darkwater: Some of the lesser races have asked for assistance. I'll show you the dossiers, and you can choose where you'd like to investigate.

Talking to allies before making a decision:

Lightbringer Tybalt Leftpaw: That was great. Our first mission, completed successfully. Wahoo!
Talk end option tango.png
Something to be proud of, Tybalt.
Demmi Beetlestone: Hello, <Character name>! Look! We're finally here. Finally safe...and all because of you.
Talk more option tango.png
So this is the heart of the Order of Whispers? Amazing.
It's a little overwhelming, but between telling them about my father's plans and my own training, I feel like I'm part of a team.
Talk more option tango.png
What are your plans? What do you want to focus on in the Order of Whispers?
Right now, I'm sharing my knowledge of Krytan politics. I love political intrigue. I think I'd make a good analyst.
Talk end option tango.png
That sounds like a great plan. Good luck, Demmi.
Talk end option tango.png
That's great to hear. Take care, Demmi.
Talk more option tango.png
Now that Commander Landon's dead, what will your father do?
What can he do? Not much. The chantry's location is a well-guarded secret, and Landon only found us because he followed us the whole way.
Talk more option tango.png
So, if you stay here, Minister Caudecus can't find you?
Exactly. I'm perfectly safe-and I think sending Landon's body back to Divinity's Reach is exactly the kind of message my father needs.
Talk end option tango.png
You are your father's daughter, Demmi.
Talk end option tango.png
I'm glad I could help you. Good luck, Demmi.
Halvora Snapdagger: Best in luck in your endeavors, young <Character name>. Our order will be watching you closely.
Talk end option tango.png
I look forward to proving myself, Preceptor.
Doern Velazquez: What can I do for our newest agent?
Talk more option tango.png
Excuse me, but who are you?
My name is Doern Velazquez. I'm one of the preceptors of the Order of Whispers.
Talk more option tango.png
Are you from Kryta?
Kryta? No, no...I mean, yes! Of course. The human nation, right? Kryta. Yes.
Talk more option tango.png
That sounds mighty suspicious. Cantha? You don't look Elonian...
That information is classified. Maybe we'll talk more about it one day.
Talk more option tango.png
Fine, I suppose. Can I ask something else?
Talk end option tango.png
All right, then. Thank you.
Talk back option tango.png
I see. May I ask you something else?
Talk more option tango.png
What's a "preceptor"?
We three lead by passing on the Master of Whisper's orders on to agents who take those tasks into the field.
Talk more option tango.png
The Master of Whispers?
The Master of Whispers is the shadowy individual who leads our order. You're not cleared to know more.
Talk back option tango.png
Understood. May I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
Very well. Thank you, Doern.
Talk back option tango.png
Understood. May I ask you something else?
Talk more option tango.png
Were you ever a field agent?
Yes. Yes I was. Until my wi...er, partner...was killed in the line of duty. I've worked here at the chantry since then, training others.
Talk more option tango.png
Were you about to say "wife?"
That's none of your business, Agent. I'd drop this line of questions, if I were you.
Talk more option tango.png
Ah, I see. May I ask you something else?
Talk end option tango.png
Yessir, Preceptor. I'm sorry.
Talk back option tango.png
May I ask you another question?
Talk end option tango.png
Nice to meet you, as well.
Valenze: Greetings, <Character name>. I'm the order's primary research analyst. Is there anything you need to know?
Talk more option tango.png
What can you tell me about the other members of the order?
Well, that depends. Some information is classified. Whom do you wish to know about?
Talk more option tango.png
Tell me about yourself, Valenze?
I'm a Preceptor, focusing on research and information. I also study illusions and other mesmer magic.
Talk back option tango.png
Very interesting. Can you tell me about another member of the order?
Talk back option tango.png
What can you tell me about the tribal cultures I'm to investigate?
Talk end option tango.png
Thank you for the information.
Talk more option tango.png
Who is Riel, and what does she do here?
Riel is a Lightbringer, and our primary agent in Lion's Arch. She's also the order's most accomplished sniper.
Talk back option tango.png
Very interesting. Can you tell me about another member of the Order of Whispers?

What can you tell me about the tribal cultures I'm to investigate?
Talk end option tango.png
Good to know, thanks.

Can you tell me about Doern and Halvora?

What can you tell me about the tribal cultures I'm to investigate?
Talk end option tango.png
They sound very capable.

Which race do you want to know more about, Agent?
Talk more option tango.png
I'd like to hear more about the grawl. (if asura, charr, or norn)
Grawl are violent and primitive. They live in caves, and utilize only simple tools and weapons. Their magic is very shamanic.
Talk back option tango.png
Will you tell me about another of the tribal cultures?
Talk back option tango.png
Very interesting. Can you tell me about the members of the Order of Whispers?
Talk end option tango.png
Thank you. We'll talk more later.
Talk more option tango.png
I'd like to hear more about the hylek. (if asura, human, norn, or sylvari)
The hylek are a race of froglike creatures. They revere the sun as a god! They also create alchemical potions and poisons.
Talk back option tango.png
Will you tell me about another of the tribal cultures?
Talk back option tango.png
Very interesting. Can you tell me about the members of the Order of Whispers?
Talk end option tango.png
That is very interesting. Thank you.
Talk more option tango.png
I'd like to hear more about the ogres. (if charr or norn)
Ogres are brutish creatures. They are not particularly social, even with their own kind, and they treat their pets like family members.
Talk back option tango.png
Will you tell me about another of the tribal cultures?
Talk back option tango.png
Very interesting. Can you tell me about the members of the Order of Whispers?
Talk end option tango.png
How interesting. Thank you.
Talk more option tango.png
I'd like to hear more about the quaggan. (if asura, human, or norn)
Quaggans are a race of intelligent creatures that live in the sea. They're amphibious, and...whoo, they have serious tempers.
Talk back option tango.png
Will you tell me about another of the tribal cultures?
Talk back option tango.png
Very interesting. Can you tell me more about the members of the Order?
Talk end option tango.png
Thank you for the information, Valenze.
Talk more option tango.png
I'd like to hear more about the skritt. (if charr, human, or sylvari)

Perhaps we'll talk more later. Thanks.
Talk end option tango.png
Not right now, I think.
Riel Darkwater: Which of the tribal cultures of Tyria would you like to investigate, Agent?
Talk more option tango.png
I've always been curious about the skritt. (if charr, human, or sylvari)
The skritt are a race of rodent scavengers. Good-hearted but light-fingered, if you know what I mean.
Talk quest choice tango.png
I choose to investigate the skritt.
Talk back option tango.png
I'll need to think about this a little longer. What were my choices again?
Talk more option tango.png
I've always wanted to swim with the quaggans. (if asura, human, or sylvari)
The quaggans are an amphibious race. It's said they once lived in the deep ocean, but something drove them toward land.
Talk quest choice tango.png
I choose to investigate quaggans.
Talk back option tango.png
I'll need to think about this a little longer. What were my choices again?
Talk more option tango.png
The hylek are an enigma. Do we know much about them? (if asura, human, norn, or sylvari)
They worship the sun, they make potions, and... that's about all we know. We could definitely benefit from knowing more.
Talk quest choice tango.png
I choose to investigate the hylek.
Talk back option tango.png
I'll need to think about this a little longer. What were my choices again?
Talk more option tango.png
I could learn a lot by studying the psychology of the grawl. (if asura, charr, or norn)
The grawl are extremely primitive, and exceptionally ferocious. You're very brave to consider dealing with them!
Talk quest choice tango.png
I choose to investigate the grawl.
Talk back option tango.png
I'll need to think about this a little longer. What were my choices again?
Talk more option tango.png
It's said the ogres are an ancient race. I want to know more. (if charr or norn)
The ogres are one of the most ancient races, and yet we know so little about them--other than their dedication to their pets.
Talk quest choice tango.png
I choose to investigate the ogres.
Talk back option tango.png
I'll need to think about this a little longer. What were my choices again?
Talk end option tango.png
I'll need to think about this a bit longer. Give me a minute to decide.

If you speak to Riel Darkwater after making your decision:

Talk end option tango.png
I look forward to proving myself.

My story[edit]

An Apple a Day.jpg

Tired of running from her father's thugs, Demmi finally stood up for herself. She joined the Order of Whispers, and together, we faced down Commander Landon—and defeated him.

Due to the success of my first mission, I've been promoted to full Agent! Tybalt and I were assigned a mission to infiltrate and influence members of one of Tyria's tribal cultures. I chose my favorite, and now, we're back in action!
