The Murderous Gheist is a Quest in Divinity: Original Sin II

Magister Yarrow of Fort Joy wants to find a missing inmate named Migo.


Important NPCs



  1. Find Migo, the missing inmate, and report to Yarrow.



On the wall of Fort Joy is Magister Yarrow, she is searching for a missing inmate named Migo. Migo is at southside of Fort Joy on the beach past Doctor Leste. He has transformed into some kind of monster and attacks you after you speak with him. You can give him Yarrow Flower (found around the island) and he will give you a ring, or you can kill him and take the ring.

Report to Magister Yarrow and confirm the status of Migo, giving her the ring as proof. If you did not kill him, you can follow her to the beach and speak with her again and she will give you a key that opens the locked door above the ladder you must kick down after teleporting to in Fort Joy Ghetto, allowing you access to Fort Joy.

Completing the quest will reward you with 600 party Experience.

Tips & Tricks

  • Migo is actually the father of Magister Yarrow. Give him a Yarrow flower to get his ring.
  • Migo's Ring provides a permanent Restoration skill (restores vitality) while worn.
  • If you give the ring to Yarrow, she will run to the beach where Migo is (or his corpse if you killed him). She can then be killed to retrieve the ring from her corpse.
  • Killing them after completing the quest results in 1000 party Experience from Migo and 800 party Experience from Magister Yarrow.
  • Killing Migo and Magister Yarrow will drop 2 unique items: Migo's Breastplate (from Migo) and Migo's Ring (from Yarrow).

    • Located on Migo's character. Killing him will give you this item. Migo is located on a beach a little further from where the Doctor is

    • This is located on Migo's body. To get this ring you can either kill Migo or give him a Yarrow flower which grows near the coffins. You have to give Magister Yarrow the ring as proof so she believes you on the location of her father. You can get the ring back by killing Magister Yarrow.

      I love how people who comment on this RPG's wiki are probably the least RP friendly people of any community I've ever seen. Like, no kidding you'll find a hundred times more role-players in a Skyrim forum, a supposedly bad RP game. Hell, if you look in the comments of any Dark Souls wiki you'll find more roleplayers. I say this cause otherwise I have to assume most players roleplay as deranged autists lol

        Tried this 3 different ways in DE. Always killed them both in the end. If you kill Migo first you get quest completion when you first talk to Yarrow. If you don't, you have to let her talk to Migo, and only then get quest completion.
        1. Kill Migo, talk to Yarrow, let Yarrow find Migo, kill Yarrow
        Key, Ring, Plate, 2100 xp (1000 Migo, 300 Quest, 800 Yarrow) - no full quest reward
        2. Pacify Migo, talk to Yarrow, kill both as Yarrow reaches Migo
        [Hero] Key, Ring, Plate, 1800 xp (1000 Migo, 800 Yarrow) - no quest reward
        3. Pacify Migo, talk to Yarrow, let Yarrow talk to Migo, kill both
        [Hero], Key, Ring, Plate, Reward, 2400 xp (600 Quest, 1000 Migo, 800 Yarrow)

        I'm doing an evil run so I'm sticking with option 1 - lose out on 300 xp and some cheapo quest rewards to avoid the Hero tag.

            Killed Migo, then gave the ring to Yarrow, went back to the beach and found Yarro, attacked her and got her poisoned for 2 turns, she triggered a conversation and told me to stop so I did, turns out she kept the poison, supposed to be only for 2 turns but we were not in combat anymore aaaaand she died from the poison eventually hehe looted the key and the ring without having to actually fight

              I gave the flower to Migo, then the ring to Yarrow. Ran back to Migo and attacked him. Yarrow got there in the middle of the fight and engaged. I killed them both. The quest doesn't close.

                Killed the magisters as a show of dominance before even meeting him, Dallis cursed me by locking this quest up cause of it.

                  First kill migo and get the ring and the armor, then after you have your collar removed you can find yarrow and kill her for the key.

                    Well, i killed Migo, took the ring and the breastplate, went back to Yarrow with a helmet-less Fane, started a fight with magisters, Yarrow joined and died in the literall cross-fire... I'm not a smart man...
                    So... Is there ANY way to get rid of the quest now? :D

                      if you give back the ring to the daugther without killing the father (at thee end of the discussion) you can have the particularity "hero" to use in discussion (like human, mystic and such)

                        If you give migo the flower, get the ring, don't kill him, give it to the daughter, then follow her back, you speak with her, and you get the key, and various other rewards, you can then kill them both (tougher fight), and get the ring back, as well as migo's armor.
