What the old man says is quite believable for everyone, even though Chell doesn't like him his concern is real, when he speaks of the servants. "Of course...I want my people back." He emphasizes. "I'll pay you 500 gold to do so. Several of my workers have disappeared over a couple week - many of them children. Tulita children. I thought it was that slaver that you caught but Commandant Boneduece assures me the is not the culprit." He shakes his head, "No tracks were left and I sent a few of my overseers out with our very best hounds, they found nothing....nothing." He stops to catch his breath. "Up until just a few days ago these disappearances were occurring nightly, I suspect it's local and coming form the Blacksink Marsh...I mean this is the closest plantation to the marsh."
He suddenly stops and straightens up, "Regardless of what you think of me, I know how jealously and rumors happen, I am a first and foremost a keen business man. I want to pull the source of the disappearances out by the roots before something big happens."
"I've questioned the other workers myself they know nothing but they are scared but you are welcome to question my overseers Mugg, Clayne, and Barran they were the ones I sent out with the hounds." He turns around and goes back behind his desk. "I was told by the Commandant that you are good...find the source and weed it out. Master Quynn will show you to the them." he looks back down at some papers on his desk clearly done with the conversation.
