The Better Man

Location Port Maje
Reward 1200cp, reputation

The Better Man is a Task of Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. 


Important NPCs



  1. Find Galian
  2. Convince Galian to leave
  3. Return to Thorel



  • When you reached Kraken's Eye, keeper Thorel tells you he has no spare rooms left. However, if you help him to get away an unpleasant customer, he will let you settle in that room along with some rewards.
  • Find Galian at the second floor of Kraken's Eye. Intimidate him (require 2 points of Intimidate), call for his sense of reason or force him to leave. If the problem was solved without a bloodbath you will get 1200cp from Thorel and the room will be available for rent. If you killed Galiant, you won't get money, but still will be able to rent a room.


Tips & Tricks

  • If you didn't manage to end the dialog peacefully and the combat starts, but you kill only Galiant's companion Baru, then Galiant stops combat and asks for mercy. So you'll have a second chance to leave him be and to get a reward from Thorel.
  • Room rest bonus differs if you solved the problem peacefully or not. If Galiant stayed alive and just left, the room will be named "The Skipper's Stay" and give you +2 Diplomacy, +2 Bluff, +2 Intimidate. If you killed Galiant, the room will be named "The Bloody Mess" and give you -1 Diplomacy, +10% Damage.
