To start this side quest, you will first have to complete Temenos the Cleric’s story. Then, embark on this thrilling journey by making your way to Flamechurch Cathedral, where you will meet a character called Ort, a Sanctum Knight who you met earlier in Temenos’ story. Upon engaging with him, he will open up about his emotions and share how he started his own inquiry following the pontiff’s assassination.

Despite having a nagging suspicion that other forces were responsible, Ort admits he carries immense guilt for his past actions. Vowing never to misplace his faith again, he discovers a vital clue: Vados the Architect, the mastermind behind the string of murders at the heart of everything. Hidden within Vados’ well-guarded records was astonishing evidence pointing to an accomplice whom Ort is determined to expose with your help.
