If you have the Fiery Defender (epic 1.0) or have done the pre-quest:

If you have the Fiery Defender or have completed the pre-quest, speak with the version of Irak Altil in the Halls of Honor. He may be found in a temple near the zoneline to the Temple of Marr, at +5, -1365, +25.

You say, 'Hail, Irak Altil'

Irak Altil says 'Ah ______, it is so good to see you again. I hope my sword has been treating you well. What [brings you here], friend?'

You say, 'What brings me here?'

Irak Altil says 'Yes, what is your purpose here? Perhaps you are curious as to how I've gotten here? Would you [like me to tell you]?'

You say, 'I would like you to tell me.'

Irak Altil says 'Let us start at the beginning. I, in my mortal form, was a follower of Quellious. As a young paladin, my tutors early on noticed my talents at spell-casting and my skills as a swordsman. I surpassed all of my mentor's expectations but I still had a [lot to learn].'

You say, 'A lot to learn?'

Irak Altil says 'My knowledge grew quickly, to the point where I could not learn anymore from my mentors. One day, I was given the choice of learning from a new master, one that rarely teaches knights. To be taught by him, I was given a series of rites that I had to pass. The path was long and difficult, but I was able to [impress my new master] and convince him to teach me.'

You say, 'You able to impress your new master?'

Irak Altil says 'Oh yes, I apologize if this sounds like boasting, but my master was both impressed and surprised with my progress. He took me as his student. Years later I had gained all the knowledge I could acquire from my master and I was able to craft a great sword, the Fiery Defender. At this point in my life I decided to on a mission to help people in need, to promote the paladin ideals to those that wished to listen, and spread the word of my Lady Quellious. However, this is not [where the story ends].'

You say, 'Where does the story end?'

Irak Altil says 'A few years after I set out on my own, I met a man named Kirak Vil. Despite being a dark elf, I welcomed him as an equal. Though I was cautious, I decided to teach him the ideals of paladins; courage, honor, truth, as well as all of the other ideals that encompass our lives. One day something [bad happened].'

You say, 'What bad happened?'

Irak Altil says 'Kirak one day turned on me. We set on an expedition deep inside Old Paineel to save a kidnapped child, when a creature named a Thought Tormentor attacked us. Kirak did not help defend me and our small expedition. Last thing I remember before blacking out was a being named the Keeper of the Tombs drawing the life out of me. I [remember little after that].'

You say, 'What little do you remember after that?'

Irak Altil says 'I have intermittent memories of being tormented and imprisoned in the Fear plane. I was stripped of my dignity and honor, and all that was left was a shade of my former self. Most of my vivid memories of that time consisted of unbearable flashes of pain. With whatever cognitive thought that remained, I prayed to Quellious to give me strength. That is when you came to my side and [saved me].'

You say, 'I saved you?'

Irak Altil says 'Yes, by giving me the honor of wielding my sword, shield, and armor, I was set free from my torment in that wretched place. I was still not whole, however. I journeyed to many places in Norrath, looking for a place to sacrifice myself upon the spear of pain. I eventually found my way to some of the [outer Planes].'

You say, 'What outer Planes?'

Irak Altil says 'As I stepped foot into the Plane of Tranquility, my soul began to yearn to be complete. This must have been a gift given to me by my Lady Quellious. I ventured into the Plane of Valor and this is when the Lord Mithaniel Marr found me and felt my suffering. I was summoned to the Temple of Marr and upon arrival, I was greeted and welcomed by every knight there. While I commanded respect in my former self, nothing I had ever experience was as intense as this. For the first time after the betrayal, I had felt complete. Lord Mithaniel and his priests gathered around me and chanted for three straight days. What happened next was [unbelievable].'

You say, 'What was unbelievable?'

Irak Altil says 'My soul and the lifeless bones that were my body began to burn like fire. It felt both painful and soothing at the same time. Energy poured out of my body and then a flash of light occurred, I passed out shortly thereafter. During my slumber, the Goddess of Love nurtured my mind and kept me company. I awoke a week later to find myself still in the Temple of Marr. The priests of Marr took care of me during my [transformation].'

You say, 'Transformation?'

Irak Altil says 'Indeed, Lord Mithaniel endowed me with this body and spoke to me, he said "My brother, while you are not a follower of Marr, I offer you a place of brotherhood here in the Halls of Honor. Your courage and perseverance are extremely commendable and I would like you to serve in my army." Honored by the ascension Lord Mithaniel had given me, I still had to take time to [consider] the offer.'

You say, 'Consider?'

Irak Altil says 'Yes, I was afraid my Lady Quellious would be saddened if I stayed in Mithaniel's realm. So I prayed to her and asked for guidance. My Lady appeared to me in my dreams and praised me for my loyalty. She then gave me approval to serve as a Soldier of Marr and offered me a place in her realm once my services to Lord Mithaniel were over. I was most [honored] and grateful at the same time.'

You say, 'Honored?'

Irak Altil says 'Honored is an understatement. I was overwhelmed by the fact that the god of Valor and Honor chose me to serve in his army. I was also overwhelmed by my own god's offer to serve her after my tour was done in this plane. I try to be very humble about this honor, for that is a virtue held dear to all paladins. Now that my story is over, I [require something of you].'

You say, 'What do you require of me?'

Irak Altil says 'When I ascended to this plane and was transformed, Mithaniel gave me a specific purpose. I was graced with the ability to sense others who were like me, others who were tortured and tormented. I have a sensitivity to other poor beings that have been tormented the same way as me. I would like you to find these beings who were being tortured, and perhaps that may shed some light on my past. I have had a few [visions] on what may help you find these other tormented beings.'

You say, 'What visions?'

Irak Altil says 'I have had visions recently of various beings who have been captured by some foreign minion and tortured. The visions all were similar in nature. Very horrible things were done to these beings, very gruesome things. As the being kept fighting the pain and anguish, more torture was applied to break them...it was a horrible vision. A spell was casted mid-way though this ritual and the tormented being was held in a stasis. I felt a tugging at my soul, and I saw that the being's soul was being pulled from their body. The soul was removed from the being and imprisoned in a crystal of foreign origin. My only guess is that whoever is behind this ploy has been stealing the souls of various races of Norrath for some dark purpose. Help those that are tormented, find the crystals, and this will help you find the minions behind this plot. Go now noble
Crusader!'

Head to the Abysmal Sea and use the Find function (Ctrl-F) to locate Lovine Lemise at -185, +195, +130.

You say, 'Hail, Lovine Lemise'

Lovine Lemise says '______, I am glad you are here. My name is Lovine and the poor soul lying on the bed over here is my good friend Reiya. My friend could use some [assistance].'

You say, 'What assistance?'

Lovine Lemise says 'I should probably begin by telling you what happened. Reiya was found a couple of days ago on the shore in Natimbi, face down in the water. The Wayfarers that found him were not sure if he was dead or not, until they brought him here to Abysmal. It appears he was unconcious at the time, since he later awoke on this bed. Something is terribly [wrong] with him though.'

You say, 'What is wrong?'

Lovine Lemise says 'I'm not sure what is wrong with him, though he constantly fades in and out of consciousness. His speech is erratic when he is awake, and his thoughts do not appear to be in this world. I have a feeling that he is being tormented in some way, but I do not know how or why. I would like you to gather a few things for me, to make a concoction that may awaken Reiya. I will tell you what the [ingredients] are.'

You say, 'What are the ingredients?'

Lovine Lemise says 'I am looking for the following things: a Potameid seaweed strand, blood from a Mastruq Havocblade, the tail of a Noc Fleshfeaster, and the jawbone of Ra'Tuk Screambringer. Place the items in this enchanted potion bag, and return it to me so that we can attempt to awaken Reiya. Please be dilligent in your search, ______.'

You receive Lovine's Potion Bag, a 4-slot GIANT container. Potameid Seaweed Strands drop from an entrapped potameid in Natimbi. You can find a Noc Fleshfeasters Tail in Riwwi off a noc fleshfeaster. Mastruq Havocblade Blood drops from a mastruq havocblade in Qinimi. Ra`Tuk Screambringer's Jaw drops in Barindu from a ra`tuk screambringer. Combine the four items in the bag to craft a non-container Lovine's Potion Bag. Bring this back to Lovine. NOTE: Make sure you have spoken to Irak Altil before this and have either Couragebringer (pre-quest) or the Fiery Defender (epic 1.0), or else Lovine will eat the hand-in.

Lovine Lemise says 'Thank you for gathering these items ______. This potion will help him very much, however, Reiya will need one more potion to help him gain conciousness. I will need you to bring him a potion of Breathless Mist. Go now and bring this quickly, friend.'

Breathless Mist is crafted through alchemy. Give it to Reiya the Pained (/loc?).

Reiya the Pained says 'Aauuuugh. Ferubi. . .Ferubi is where I was taken. . .' In a bright flash, Reiya has withered away.

You receive Reiya's Soulstone, a 2-slot GIANT container that identifies as "This appears to be missing shards." Head to Ferubi. On zoning in, you see this:

The Shade of Reiya the Pained shouts, 'Fool, you think you can come here and try to defeat me? Try as you may, you will fail.'

Shade of Reiya the Pained spawns near the Qinimi zoneline (/loc?). Bring 1-2 groups, as it flurries and is not enchanter-slowable. When it dies:

Shade of Reiya the Pained's corpse says 'My master and his followers in Vxed shall avenge my death, mortal!'

Loot A Soulstone Shard, which identifies as "One of two shards for Reiya's Soulstone."

Unsolved from here. Need all dialogues; faction hits if any; names, /loc, zones (including instance names as you zone in), levels and fight information for quest mobs; quest items; any additional relevant information.

Congratulations on your 'Redemption'!
