Received from: Sir Gilmore [Cousland Castle]
Description: Make your way to the kitchen area (M15, 2) before you end the first quest and you're going to be stopped by Sir Gilmore. He'll tell you that your mabari is running around the kitchen and wreaking havoc. Go to [Cousland Castle - Kitchen] and talk to Nan (M15, 3). During the conversation you'll be informed about the problem and you can now focus on solving it or you can talk to Nan again and use intimidation to calm her down.
Use a nearby door to enter [Cousland Castle - Pantry] (M15, 4). Here you'll be presented with an opportunity to "talk" to your mabari, as well as to give it a name. You'll soon find out that your animal was in fact helping, because giant rats can be found in the pantry. Start attacking the rodents and don't be surprised to see more of them appearing in a short while. Once it's safe return to [Cousland Castle - Kitchen] and report to the Nan. Sir Gilmore will now leave your team, but thankfully the dog will remain as your faithful companion.
