- Speak to the Guard near the southern entrance of the Village
He wants to discuss a sensitive issue. People are saying that a shade has managed to enter the village. Track it down, and kill it.
A child will run out and say she saw a really scary monster by the river.
- Look for the Shade by the river (walk towards the river from where the pigs are grazing), the Shade will not be there.
- Wait for NieR to examine the river, then ask the child again.
She will say instead that it was at the square in front of the library
- Inspect the courtyard in front of the library. No Shade there either.
- Ask the other Villagers for more information.
A villager will say he saw it was accompanied by a child.
A villager will say she saw it a few days ago, but it wasn't much bigger than a kid
A villager will say she saw something near the shopping district that kinda sorta looked like a Shade if you squinted
- Question the child again. She will say she saw it near the northern gate or the hill to the west.
- Look for the Shade near the northern gate on the hill to the west, (up the staircase from the market). There will be a small Shade.
They found out the little girl had been trying to protect the Shade after all
- Kill the Shade and return to the first Guard and this will end the quest.
