Reward  3000 gold

Thieves in Training is one of the Side Quests in NieR Replicant. Side quests are optional tasks or quests usually requested by NPCs that players can choose to complete in order to obtain rewards. Some quests rewards are required for certain endings. 


The item shopkeeper needs your help finding the culprits that robbed his store. Begin by asking around for clues.

Apparently the culprits work as a pair.

Apparently the culprits are children...

The robbers were a pair of children. You need to talk to their father. Try the tavern.

The father is useless. Report back to the client for now.

Your client says he'll search for a guardian for the children. Hopefully he'll find someone good.

Can anyone take care of these kids?

Thieves in Training Walkthrough


He will talk about some thieves stealing food from him

Grimoire Weiss: " Do you have a  plan, or are we going to walk up to every person we see and shake them until stolen vegetables fall from their pockets?"

  • Speak to the people around the Shopping District to gather more information to solve the case

Clues from Villagers:
Villagers will mention that it is two thieves working as a team 
The Guard mentions he saw the thief, and he looked really young

Grimoire Weiss will recall the pair of brothers that loiter near the waterwheel.

  • Reach the young brothers at the waterwheel from the top of the Village wall, and speak to them

The brothers will admit they have been the one's stealing, but only because their father told them to. 

  • Speak to their father at the Tavern

Their father will be too drunk to have a proper conversation. 

  • Speak to the Item Shopkeeper to inform him of what you know. This will end the quest
