  1. Leave the tavern

  3. Go back to the tavern
  4. Talk to Diluc


(Talk to Diluc)
Venti: You're here.
Jean: Wait, you're... (Traveler)?
Icon Dialogue Talk.png ...Jean?
Icon Dialogue Talk.png Why is the Acting Grand Master here?
Diluc: Well, first of all, I contacted more than one person.
Diluc: Secondly, she came here as "Jean" herself, not as the Acting Grand Master.
Diluc: A Jean you would never see, even as an Honorary Knight.
Jean: What a surprise.
Jean: I heard about the Holy Lyre, but I never suspected it was you.
Jean: So, the sound of the Holy Lyre can purify Stormterror and return it to normal... Is that true?
Venti: That's right! (Traveler) is putting themselves on the front line to try and resolve this Stormterror issue.
Venti: Now that's the hotshot of the Knights of Favonius I'm talking about.
Paimon: Feels like we're breaking the law though...
Diluc: I understand this kind of absurd explanation is hard to believe.
Diluc: But, we can ask the bard to play the song again to try and persuade—
Jean: I believe you.
Diluc: To persuade our stubborn comman— Wait, what?
Jean: I can't think of any reason for Dvalin's betrayal, given it was once one of The Four Winds.
Jean: However, if it was poisoned in the battle over Mondstadt all those years ago...
Jean: And then corrupted by the Abyss Mage after it woke up — we can't really blame it.
Jean: But as Acting Grand Master I obviously cannot make such a statement publicly.
Jean: Diplomatic pressure from the Fatui makes it hard for us to seek a peaceful resolution to the Stormterror issue.
Jean: People would think I've lost grip on the gravity of the situation. That's why I can only do this in private.
Diluc: Hmph.
Diluc: That's one of the reasons I don't like the Knights of Favonius.
Diluc: What surprises me is that you would believe an outlander so easily...
Jean: My cautious and meticulous superior, even you trust (him/her). Don't you, sir?
Diluc: I already told you not to call me sir... Never mind. We don't often get to work together after all.

Jean: ...
Diluc: ...
Paimon: Wow! Um... This is really awkward...
Jean: I have a rough idea of where the Holy Lyre der Himmel is.
Venti: (Nice recovery! She's really talented at changing the subject...)
Jean: The conflict between Mondstadt and Snezhnaya stems from the conflict between the seven nations and their respective gods.
Jean: The Cryo God's Fatui seem to be after the Anemo God's power.
Venti: ...
Icon Dialogue Talk.png So are they going to take over the defense of Mondstadt?
Icon Dialogue Talk.png So they want to kill Dvalin?
Jean: Right.
Jean: If the Knights of Favonius publicly prevented an attempt on Dvalin's head, then...
Jean: The only other way to affect the Anemo God's power is to take the Holy Lyre.
Diluc: The number of Fatui that have come to Mondstadt is far from limited.
Diluc: I've already managed to... coerce a few reports out of them.
Jean: Diluc has determined that the Holy Lyre is not being held in the Goth Grand Hotel.
Jean: I imagine they don't want to leave something stolen in a place where it could be so easily found.
Paimon: Paimon gets it. If too much of a scene gets made then it becomes a big diplomatic issue.
Diluc: Hmph, such is the diplomacy between the seven nations.
Diluc: Outlander, ready to go?
Icon Dialogue Talk.png Let's go!
Icon Dialogue Talk.png Wait a second. (doesn't progress the quest)
