Velvet Glove, Brass Fist is a Quest in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire. A Vailian named Bertenno stole Rokowa's Fingers, a pair of expensive gloves belonging to the wizard Arkemyr. Fassina, the clerk at the Dark Cupboard, needs the gloves returned before she gets in deep water with her master. There's no telling where Bertenno will try to fence the gloves, but he has an appointment to keep at the Brass Citadel docks.

Walkthrough

  • In The Dark Cupboard of Periki's Overlook area, you will find Bertenno steals Fassina's gloves. She asks you to find Bertenno and get back the gloves.
  • Bertenno, the man who stole the glove from The Dark Cupboard can be found at the dock area of The Brass Citadel. Help him pay his debt (400cp) or deal with Hamuto to get back the glove.
    • You can offer to buy out Bertenno's debt, which constitutes 400 cp.
    • You can let him take Bertenno away for "indentured servitude". Note that Hamuto will take the gloves, unless you buy them back (100 cp) or use Streetwise 1 / Arcana 1 / Insight 1 / Wizard / Rogue to convince him that taking Arkemyr's property is unwise.
    • You can fight for Bertenno, which will result in a moderate drop in reputation with the RDC.
    • Alternatively, you can pickpocket the gloves before you speak to Bertenno.
  • Return to Fassina. You can give her the gloves, ransom them back, or lie and keep them.
