This quest is unavoidable. If Scarlett visits the Skullbreak Tavern first, and speaks with the exiled Juma Tribeswoman upstairs there, she will explicitly ask her to warn Akbah that Princess Chiamaka has arrived in Venice and will be looking for him. Alternatively, Scarlett we'll get this quest automatically the first time she enters the Dockyards in the Arsenal District.
- Access to the Arsenal District.
- Abandoned Honor quest - Deal with two corrupt Guardsmen to get into the Dockyards area.
Maybe surprisingly, Akbah is a competent fighter and can take care of himself. Even if Scarlett doesn't intervene at all, he will manage to defeat his two attackers by himself. And, he will still be grateful to Scarlett for saving his life, even though she just watched. (Of course, then Scarlett misses out on the extra experience points for killing hostile Juma Warriors.
Also, Akbah will owe her a favor.
