 Detailed Walkthrough
 My Brother's Keeper
The mini-quest "My Brother's Keeper" instructs you to speak with Ocheeva to receive your next contract. She wants you to find and kill a High Elf named Faelian, somewhere in the Imperial City. She suggests speaking to your fellow Brothers and Sisters for advice. She also warns you not to arouse suspicions with Adamus Phillida, an Imperial Guard Captain and sworn enemy of the Brotherhood and says you must do this killing in a secure indoor location with no witnesses to receive your bonus.
 Tiber Septim Hotel
Vicente Valtieri will reveal that the Elves of the Imperial City are a rather close-knit community and that at least one of them will know Faelian, so travel to the Imperial City and speak with any Elf with a disposition of 50 or more about Faelian to learn that he lives at the Tiber Septim Hotel, in the Talos Plaza District. Speak with Augusta Calidia at the Tiber Septim to learn that Faelian was once a wealthy nobleman, but he's squandered his fortune on skooma. His wealthy girlfriend Atraena lives at the hotel as well and he visits her at night, perhaps she has more information. If you run into Faelian inside the hotel and speak with him, he will think that you are a fellow addict and will ask you to meet him later, outside the hotel. The hotel is a very public place; killing Faelian inside the hotel means you won't get your bonus for the contract.
 Dealing with Faelian
 Method 1
If Atraena's disposition is above 50, she will tell you that Faelian visits Lorkmir's house in the Elven Gardens District during the day to enjoy his skooma because the house is abandoned. In fact, he heads for the house at 11am and stays there until 5pm. Go to the house during that time, pick the lock, or steal the key from Faelian, and kill him in any way you see fit. If you search the basement you'll find Lorkmir's dead body, apparently killed by Faelian, which explains why the house is abandoned.
 Method 2
Talk to Faelian outside of the hotel and you'll quickly see that he is under the influence of skooma. After listening to his rantings ask him about skooma and he will get even more excited. If you happen to have some already you can offer it to him then and there. Otherwise, he will tell you about his supplier, Nordinor in Bravil; other places where skooma can be obtained are listed on the skooma article. Any source of skooma will be acceptable to Faelian. It is also possible to pickpocket it from Faelian himself, as he doesn't care. Once you have obtained one bottle of skooma, return to Faelian. In return for the skooma he'll give you the key to Lorkmir's house. Use the key to get in, wait for Faelian to arrive and kill him.
Either way, return to Ocheeva for a level dependent gold reward (up to 600 gold) and a single Infamy point. If you were not detected, you will receive Shadowhunt as a bonus: a leveled bow with Damage Health and Damage Magicka enchantments. If you failed to properly complete The Assassinated Man quest, Ocheeva will now promote you to the rank of Eliminator and give you the Sanctuary Well Key.
- If you don't want to do all this detective work, just be at Lorkmir's house at some time between 11am and 5pm. He will arrive no matter how the quest develops.
- Nordinor will still sell you skooma whether you've already killed Faelian or not, provided you meet him after midnight in the alley.
- Faelian never eats and so cannot be killed with a Poisoned Apple.
- An achievement will be unlocked upon completing this quest if you failed The Assassinated Man.
 Journal Entries
- Not all Journal Entries may appear in your journal; which entries appear and which entries do not depends on the manner in which the quest is done.
- Stages are not always in order of progress. This is usually the case with quests that have multiple possible outcomes or quests where certain tasks may be done in random order.
- If an entry is marked as "Finishes Quest" it means the quest disappears from the Active Quest list, but you may still receive new entries for that quest.
- On the PC, it is possible to use the console to advance through the quest by entering
setstage Dark06Wanderer stage, where
stageis the number of the stage you wish to complete. It is not possible to un-complete (i.e. go back) quest stages. See SetStage for more information.
