Afterward, travel to Quicksand Caves in the same location and find the Suspicious Man at the end of the cavern. Interact with him to start the boss fight, revealing the Snake Charmer and Giant Python. When both enemies are defeated, Wellspring guards will enter the caves and conclude the quest.

- Suspicious Man is present in Quicksand Caves from the beginning and after finishing the story permanently disappears from the game.
- Upon completion of the side story Injured Scout is relocated to Wellspring.
