Nika in Bukdek Byway
This quest leads you to become Weh no Su (Closer To The Stars).
After completing this quest, Nika and the Off-Duty Guards will continue to spawn in Bukdek Byway, repeating their dialogue from this quest when you approach them, until the follow-up quest, Closer to the Stars, is accepted.
Exit Dragon's Throat into Shadow's Passage and talk to Brother Mhenlo. Then make your way to Nika in Bukdek Byway. You can either go to Bukdek Byway from Shadow's Passage or map travel to Kaineng Center, The Marketplace or Vizunah Square (Foreign Quarter) (if you're playing a foreign character) and start from one of those.
Either way, proceed to the map marker giving Nika's location; when you approach her, she will begin her scripted dialogue with the Off-Duty Guards who are harassing her. Be careful when you approach her, as there are a number of patrolling Jade Brotherhood groups close by. Careful pulling should enable you to dispatch the groups individually, although you will probably find that Nika begins talking while you are fighting.

- Messenger Gosuh
- "Excuse me. I have a message from Master Togo and Brother Mhenlo. They said you should meet them in Shadow's Passage."
- Accept: "Thank you. I'm on my way."
- Decline: "Maybe later."
- Ask: "I don't know anything about an Oracle. I think my sister has mentioned an oracle [sic] or something before, but she is always saying crazy things. Why are you asking me though? I am just a messenger. Your friends Mhenlo and Togo are waiting for you in Shadow's Passage."
- Brother Mhenlo: "You must see the Oracle of the Mists and become Weh no Su."
- Master Togo: "The Oracle can be elusive, but I imagine some of my recent students may know where to find him now. Many of them seek to become Weh no Su after leaving the monastery."
- Brother Mhenlo: "I heard that Nika saw the Oracle not long ago. I think I know where she can be found."
- Brother Mhenlo
- "Nika was just starting at Shing Jea my last year there, but I got to know her fairly well. She's an Assassin with the Obsidian Flame now and spends her time in Bukdek Byway, I believe. If anyone can help you find the Oracle of the Mists, she can. The only trick will be getting her to help you. She can be a bit willful, and believe me when I say you don't want to make her mad. Just tell her Master Togo sent you."
- Nika: "Get your hands off me, pongmang! You are unfit to touch me!"
- Off-Duty Guard: "Such harsh words. We only want to talk."
- Off-Duty Guard: "Careful, you saw what she did to the boss's guards."
- Nika: "I said...get...your...kai sang...hands...off...me!"
- Off-Duty Guard: "Or what, princess? Or what?"
- Nika: "Or my friends here will have to have a talk with you."
- Off-Duty Guard: "Oh, you can put those away...we were only joking, princess...."
- Off-Duty Guard: "Maybe we should just go. The Obsidian Flame will get what is coming to them."
- Off-Duty Guard: "Fine, we will go. The others can deal with her."
- Off-Duty Guard: "Come...this little apple is probably rotten, anyway."
- "That's right. I'm Nika the Assassin and I am a member of the Obsidian Flame. It does not surprise me that you know my name. Nor even that you have heard of my exploits becoming Closer to the Stars. But what I am wondering is why is it any of your affair? Well, are you ready to explain yourself?"
