- "My flock seems bothered by something lately. Afraid's more like it. Might be there's some monster lurking nearby." —Carefree Shepherd
Travel west through the flats and use the Inquire/Scrutinize Path Action on the Trembling Merchant to glean the information Where the Direwolf Prowls. It's mandatory to initiate the fight with a story boss.
Enter the Forest of Purgation and take the first path north and then head east. Reaching the end will trigger the boss battle with Mánagarmr. Defeat Mánagarmr to obtain the Direwolf Fang and give the item to the Carefree Shepherd.
The direwolf was driven away from its territory, allowing the sheep to live on peacefully.
- Trembling Merchant appears after completing Ophilia's Chapter 4.
