Dialogue[edit]

During Collect fur samples for Linnea
I don't care if everyone else thinks I'm crazy. There's a yeti out there, waiting to strike. Prove it is out there so I can stop it from attacking others, like poor Bjarni here.
Talk give option tango.png Look at this strange fur I found.
Hare's whiskers! The yeti is now real. Now, where is it? Quick, find more of its fur.
Talk end option tango.png I'll help you find it.
Talk more option tango.png People think you're crazy?
It's because I follow Hare. Others mock me for it, saying Hare isn't a true Spirit of the Wild. But Hare will help me find the yeti, even if no one else believes me.
Talk more option tango.png I can see why they don't. Yetis haven't been seen here for a long time.
True, but Bjarni swears he saw one. His mind may be addled, but he's never lied to me. Maybe it's the same yeti. Maybe it's hunting all of us. We have to find out.
Talk more option tango.png What do I have to do?
Search for fur that doesn't belong to any of the animals around here. Bring what you find back to me. Hare will help me track down the yeti.
Talk end option tango.png I'll look for unusual fur.
Talk end option tango.png I'm not chasing a bunch of shadows.
Talk more option tango.png Why follow Hare?
Hare may not be revered as a Spirit of the Wild, but have you ever seen one? Fast as Snow Leopard, hardy as Bear, and as sharp-eyed as Raven. We would be wise to follow Hare.
Talk more option tango.png Spirits aside, can I help with the yeti? (Same as "What do I have to do?")
Talk end option tango.png That's a bit of a stretch. Good-bye.
Talk more option tango.png Who's Bjarni? (Same as below.)
Talk more option tango.png What can I do to help? (Same as "What do I have to do?")
Talk end option tango.png Hare? Yetis? I'm out of here.
Talk more option tango.png Who's Bjarni?
That's a sad story. He used to be a great warrior, but he was attacked by the yeti and left for dead. It broke his mind, I think. I do what I can to care for him.
Talk more option tango.png Wait. There haven't been yetis around here for a long time. (Same as "I can see why they don't...")
Talk more option tango.png How can I help? (Same as "What do I have to do?")
Talk end option tango.png Not interested. Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png I'll hunt for yeti evidence.
During Protect Linnea while she chases the jackalope
No time to chat. I have to catch the jackalope!
Talk end option tango.png I'm right behind you.
During Protect Linnea as she hunts for the yeti
Stay close and we will defeat the enemy of Hare.
Talk end option tango.png Okay.
After completing Protect Linnea as she hunts for the yeti
A jotun in animal skins. Such deception! But no matter, Hare guided me to the truth. Thank you for joining me and for protecting us all.
Talk Merchant.png Hare didn't guide you to any bunny-related items, did she?
Talk more option tango.png Why would a jotun dress like an animal?
The wilds must have damaged his mind. It happens. A norn hunts so much that he becomes an animal. Keep your wits about you, or you will lose them in the ice and snow.
Talk more option tango.png With a jotun that big wearing animal skins, it's no wonder Bjarni thought he saw a yeti.
You have Raven's eye, my friend. I should get back to Bjarni and tell him the threat is gone. Good hunting.
Talk end option tango.png Thank you. Good-bye.
Talk end option tango.png I understand. Thank you.
Talk end option tango.png You're welcome. Take care.

Trivia[edit]

  • Linnea still mentions Bjarni in her dialogue when the norn reacting to her news has been Igmar since the changes made in the New Player Experience patch. This is likely due to the fact that Bjarni and Linnea are a reference to the characters George Milton and Lennie Small from the John Steinbeck novel Of Mice and Men. George was the caretaker of Lennie, a mentally handicapped giant who dreamed of being able to care for rabbits.
