A Familiar Face Walkthrough

If you saved Delorus at Fort Joy (the Magister being beat up in the prison), he will join your team here in hopes of finding his fellow Magisters. Not too far north from where you find him, there are some dead Magisters that he will identify as his friends and you will have a chance to encourage or beat him down over his dead friend Magister Pearst. Encouraging him to take revenge on the Black Ring when he next sees them will grant him a permanent Enrage buff, while encouraging him to honor Pearst's memory will grant him a permanent Encourage buff.

Simply escort Delorus to the Altar of Tir-Cindelius, where his colleagues are taking refuge. It is located north-east, where the Temple of Tir-Cendelius waypoint is.
You are rewarded Delorus's Bow upon completion.

Delorus is extremely weak, so he should not be brought into combat as he will die easily. (As of DE, he levels with your party and is not nearly as much of a liability).

Serious Bug: If at any point in time you decide to tell Delorus to stay put and wait for you, there is a chance that when you tell him to rejoin your party, he won't. To rectify this, you will need to hire a mercenary at the Lady Vengeance and have them ask Delorus to rejoin the party instead. Because of this bug, it is highly recommended to split the party member he is attached to from your team instead of telling him to stay put.

Alternatively, it seems that if you have already killed Alexander before ever talking to Delorus, you can then escort him to the temple and complete the quest as normal.  Rather hilariously he does not seem to notice that Alexandar is dead, and will remark that it's good to be back with his comrades when spoken to.

Tips & Tricks

  • If Delorus dies at any point in time, resurrecting him does not restore the quest. The quest will still close and record him as being dead. 
  • If you did not convince Gareth to give up his quest for revenge, Gareth will be in the middle of confronting Delorus' colleagues upon arrival. It is possible to avoid this encounter entirely, by using the waypoint to make Delorus complete his quest and leave. You will have a persuasion check (43 in stat + 5 persuasion will fail, possibly not a check you can win) to attempt to convince him against attacking Alexandar. Unless Gareth does not attack, Delorus will immediately turn against you regardless of weither you take his side or not.
  • Peace of Mind will remove his enraged buff until Enrage is cast on him again, upon which he will regain his permanent enrage buff.
  • Killing him gives 20,075 (tested level 17).

      If you want to kill Alexander but don't want to kill Delorus, you can have Delorus follow a henchman and leave him away from the fight until it's over. He'll behave as if nothing is wrong.

          I didn't convince Gareth to give up his quest for revenge. I helped him get revenge. I didn't see him on Nameless Isle, though.

            I teleported a wooden barricade so I could get past. For some reason, Delorus took that personally and attacked me.

              On Honour Mode the game will auto save if he dies in battle. And given he is level 9... good luck with that. It's a horrible design to make him so weak yet have him be treated as a party member.

                Talk to him to leave him in a spot so he does not die. When you get to the elvan temple (with him back), talk to the knight and ask where Alexandar is. He will leave and give you a pretty good level appropriate bow.

                  He died, I resurrected him. Journal says he is dead. Quest won't complete even when Delorus is right in front of Alex. 5th party member?
