5. Leave the mansion grounds and speak to Gossip outside, ask him questions about the Sinclair family and after asking him about Anna, he will tell you she is being held in the Seers' Village courthouse.

6. Head into Seers' Village and enter the courthouse, speak with Anna and she will claim that she did not murder her father, her brother set her up. She tells you that she knows nothing of her family's whereabouts, so you tell her your leaving, she will stop you before you leave and tell you that she will confide in you in return for a favour. She asks you to help her to be given a 'not guilty' verdict and she will give you instructions to speak to the servants around the mansion, before you leave she will also give you a thread from one of her sibling's clothing.

7. The next stage is optional you can either go straight down into court or head back into the Sinclair Mansion and speak to the following servants to get some information on the case;

  • Butler - Ask about the dagger
  • Dog Handler - Ask about the poison
  • Maid - Ask about the night of the murder
  • Then ask any of the three about the thread.

12. You will now arrive inside the jail, speak to Merlin and ask him every available option, to the north of the room there is a vent, reach for it and merlin will escape by climbing on a human pyramid, if you have forgotten your lockpick or telekinetic grab runes, you can use this method to leave and get them.

12. To get out, use your lockpick on the door, if you have brought telekinetic grab runes instead of a lockpick, then use a telekinetic grab on the hair clip in the guards hair. Now use either the lockpick or hair clip to open the puzzle.
