      The kid that takes you from fort joy underground with a boat to marshes has a similar doll for sale... might be a clue?

        She gave you a doll in this quest... did anyone notice a similar doll can be bought from the kid under fort joy that can take you to marshes with a boat?

          Is this quest broken? I have visited her as a human, talked to the husband or friend, whatever the hell he is, and told the woman that the child is dead and blahbity blah blah and nothing...

            If you are an elf, just pick option: "Say your kind aren't cannibals in the way she thinks" And she'll continue speaking with you and give the quest.

              I had a wooden figurine in my inventory that I can't remember where I picked up but that seemed to move the quest forward a little more. Still looking for the daughter though and there aren't any updates in the journal.

                I don't know if it's important to the quest, but if you pickpocket Jeth, he has a pair of panties you can steal. Scumbag.

                  I used the shapeshifter mask to turn my undead lizard into a human. This allowed me to accept the quest from her.
                  After talking to Jeth and getting the quest from her you'll be able to complete the quest by saying that you heard she died in a Voidwoken attack.

                    Actually, I think the daughter is "Coral" who is in a camp above the Hidden Cove.

                    Fara says in her conversation that Erma doesn't like lizards (if you speak to her as a lizard) and has fair hair and dark eyes. Coral has both of these and standing near her she sometimes say, "Mmm... mama." while she cries. Speaking to Coral can lead to her telling you that she misses her mama (and pa) and she doesn't like her Master who is a Lizard.

                    The npc near Coral is an Elf which is another race that Fara will not talk to you if you are one. Speaking to her as an Elf can lead to her telling you she is waiting for Magister Atusa. One conversation path says she found the child in the camp and that the child is hers now.

                    I'm still in the process of seeing if anything leads anywhere. Unfortunately most conversation paths lead to not being able to talk to someone again. So it's requiring a lot of reloads!

                      I've noticed a couple graphics glitches that show the dark haired girl (beginning with W) at Griffs Kitchen walking to the mother when loading a save game after accepting the quest in front of her, but before talking to Jeth.

                      This makes me think that she is actually her daughter, and kidnapped by Griff, as she also fits the description but as yet I've yet to find dialogue options or interaction with the doll that can open the completion of the quest that way.

                        Fara won't let you help her if you are an elf. Talk to her with a non-elf character until she gives you a doll, and then talk to the guy with the same character so he tells you their daughter is dead. Now that you know it, convince Fara and the quest will be completed

                          I don't see why they made this quest at all in this state since you can't go back to Fort Joy apparently and in order to be able to do it you would have to visit the village where they lived in and speak with Ermas Ghost. Problem is if you complete the quest Erma will not speak to you or even be tehre in teh first place, and if you don't finish it, the quest auto closes on leaving the area because you can't return. There's another problem with the Imprisoned Elf quest that completes on leaving the area when you are supposed to tell their tribesmen Sahila is in Fort Joy. I was unable to complete the quest. I reported this to Larian, maybe they will fix this because I honestly see no point in this.

                            Seems like another unfinished quest. Doubt picking up a quest from one person and finishing with the person standing right next to them is the intended design.

                              You can complete this quest as an elf if you have a non-elf party member. You just switch to that character by clicking their portrait, and then have them speak to her.
