While in the Moon Curser Village, Bayek came across a merchant and a priest in a hut.
- Dennu: A little sunstroke will not stop me, I must have justice!
- Priest: You must rest, neb!
- Dennu: And every minute I keen like a sick infant, that cheat has my father's ring.
Bayek approached the merchant.
- Dennu: They fuss like clucking hens!
- Bayek: How did you end up here, neb?
- Dennu: A fisherman on the road to Swenett, said I tore his nets and set the soldiers on me! They took everything I owned.
- Bayek: The soldiers stole from you?
- Dennu: Recompense for the injury. As if nets are worth my father's ring! The Steward should do something, but I waited all day in the sun to see him.
- Bayek: A suspicious scheme indeed.
- Dennu: And the road is busy, many head to the desert west of the village. More will fall foul of it!
- Bayek: I will talk to this so-called fisherman.
- Dennu: And I will go again to the Steward. One way or another justice will be done.
Bayek headed north, where he found a couple of fishing nets. He overheard a voice.
- Hagiel: No! My nets! You've ruined my livelihood. Will no one give me justice?
- Soldier 1: Another troublemaker.
- Soldier 2: Pay for the damage, neb. Or face the cells.
The soldiers attacked Bayek, who eliminated them. Bayek approached the fisherman.
- Hagiel: Please, it's not what you think! Please!
- Bayek: I think that you and the soldiers are working together. Extorting travelers on the road.
- Hagiel: Ah, so it is what you think. But I am as mnuch as a victim as the merchants.
- Bayek: How so, a ratty little thief like you?
- Hagiel: Ratty? No, the steward is to blame! He holds my family captive, threatened to kill them if I did not go along with his scheme.
- Bayek: Your family?
- Hagiel: My cat! Lord Furface is all the family I have. Most pay up without a fuss, those that don't the guards convince. And the steward takes all.
- Bayek: I do not want to see you here again.
- Hagiel: No! No, you won't. A man can always get a new cat.
The merchant left the area.
- Bayek: The merchant puts his head in the lion's mouth, I must find him first.
Bayek travelled north to the estate, where a man nearby commented on a murder that had taken place.
- Man 1: The steward goes too far! I turned a blind eye to his corruption because he let me be, but this is murder.
- Man 2: Dennu was no threat, he just wanted his father's ring returned.
Bayek approached Dennu's body.
- Bayek: Why would they do this? He was no threat.
He investigated the merchant's body and found a threatening note.
- This is your doing, meddler:
This man is dead because you meddled in affairs that do not concern you. I will face you at the shipyard if you have the balls to try and come for me.
- Bayek: This man was murdered as a warning to me?
Bayek headed to the shipyard. With the help of Senu, he identified the steward amongst his guards.
- Bayek: The steward's oppressive reign is about to end.
Bayek assassinated the steward.
- Bayek: You should have protected these people, now you will answer to Osiris.
Bayek investigated the steward's body and recovered the merchant's ring.
- Bayek: His father's ring. Perhaps if ever I venture into his afterlife, I can return it.
Bayek assassinated the steward behind the plot to steal from the Egyptians.
