The Secret People Walkthrough
You will get this quest by talking to Velma Ballard at the warehouse in Stellar Bay, Monarch. She will mention Braxton has been skipping work and is likely using drugs, and ask you to look into it. Accept to begin the quest.
Head to the apartments on the southern portion of Stellar Bay and go to the second floor. You’ll meet Laura, and you can ask her about Braxton. She will initially deny any knowledge then say that she’s after his stash. She will reveal that he’s delivering to a family that has fallen sick in a house in the ruins south of the town. Alternatively you can read an “Out for Deliveries” note to the left of Laura. You’ll get 4500xp and an updated objective.
Leave Monarch and head south toward a bridge. You’ll have to fight several Raptidon in this area. Eventually you’ll come by a house with some nice plants on the front, this is Mather Residence. Head inside, and you’ll discover this 3-floor building is inhabited by many. You’ll first meet Edgar Mather, who will welcome you in and invite you to join for dinner if you accept his hospitality without mentioning Braxton. Nearby, Levi Mather and Martha Mather can also be talked to. If you mention Braxton, none of them know him. Upstairs, you can meet Lizzie Mather, who will ask you if you have “Rocket Candies”. You can lie (1) and she will mention someone else used to bring the candies. Apparently Martha and Edgar got into an argument with Braxton over the deliveries.
You can also read Levi Mather’s Poetry Journal in his room for some insight. On the third floor, there’s a locked door that can be opened with Mather House Key (pickpocketed or looted from Edgar) or lockpicked. Open this door to find a headless corpse within, which has been dismembered and likely prepared for “dinner”. Loot the body to obtain Braxton Hecht’s Work ID, Supper Time and obtain 4500xp.
Head downstairs and Edgar will stop you, realizing you are aware of the truth. You can Lie (35) that you’ll send more meals his way, resolving the conflict for 4500xp. Alternatively you can intiate combat or be rude to them, and kill them all for 4500xp. Your companions will likely approve of killing them.
You can also unlock the 2F door to exit the house without ever having to talk to Edgar.
Once you’re out, you can head back to Velma to report your findings, but while you’re here, you are near an objective for BOLT with His Name so check on it first if you haven’t done so yet.
Return to Velma and giver her Braxton Hecht’s Work ID, you’ll get 4500xp for the step and 15000xp for the quest, 625 Bit Cartridge and Monarch Stellar Industries Reputation.
Now that you’ve completed this quest, you can Persuade (20) Velma to give you the poster for The Grimm Tomorrow.
