The Chimerist’s Last Experiment Walkthrough
This quest is obtained after finishing The Ice Palace ans speaking to Lilya Hagen on Groundbreaker.
Head to Dr. Chartrand’s house in Byzantium within the Estate District and use the Byzantium Estate Key to open the door and enter Dr. Chartrand’s Home. Once inside use the terminal to read her logs and notes, some of which talk about you checking the lab terminal on Cascadia and your takeover of HS-1084. Use the same terminal to open the lab and head down the elevator. Head forward and speak to Dr. Eva Chartrand. You can tell her that Lilya Hagen sent you to kill her, and she will say she does not know Lilya and wonder if she’s from The Board.
You can Lie (1) to her to get her to tell you what she is doing, which is finding a new way to feed the colony, as the crops that humanity brought from earth are not reacting well to local soil and not giving humans the needed nutrients to survive. She will tell you that the colony will starve unless she can alter humans to thrive on the nutrients found in Halcyon, and dissuade your fears that there’s any alien takeover. She will also reveal that they didn’t want to experiment on humans, so they instead experimented on each other, and the concerning fact that they contacted Earth about this years ago and never heard back.
Important: You need to be on decent standing with The Board or you won’t be able to persuade the guards to let her go. If you’re falling into aggro or don’t get options, go do some quests for The Board and come back later.
