"Indeed, my mood hangs heavily today. I've not seen my love for many months. I've told very few of my predicament, but you seem very trustworthy. You see, I'm in love with Aria, princess of Cumbria. Against my father's wishes, I sent a ship, the Elizabeth Dane, to retrieve Aria three months ago. It took the southern route, around Razors Pointe. I've heard no word since.”
-A Conversation with Prince Auguste Farad


Prince Auguste Farad can be found in the royal palace of Caladon.


The Prince will initially brush off the player if they have not taken on the quest to Find King Praetor's Daughter.


  • If the Princess Aria quest is active, then also Prince Farad will ask the player to look for her
  • If the player has already found her body and told King Praetor that Farad killed her, then Farad becomes the target for Praetor's assassination quest
  • If (or also) the player tells Farad that Praetor imprisoned and is torturing Aria, then Farad states that he will assemble his generals to go to war with Cumbria
  • If the player tells both parties the truth, then they will receive a modest reward from Praetor and Farad

Prince Auguste Farad was in a Romeo and Juliet romance with Princess Aria of Cumbria. Both fathers disapproved, but the star-struck lovers were determined to stay together. Tragedy struck when the ship sent by Farad to carry Aria from Dernholm to Caladon was wrecked in a storm on the way back, with all hands lost. The player has much leeway on how the politics of this play out.
