The Recluse desires you to self-care. After leaving the battle, you encounter a solitary Fae, floating gracefully ahead. He appears to be in a meditative state but is aware and acknowledges your presence. He shares that he is applying techniques of self-care, not due to a recent battle, but to balance himself and sort through any traumatic experiences he may have had to endure over his existence. He says he is like The Free Spirit but where there is joy, there is also pain and sadness. He prefers to not dwell in any one emotion but rather acknowledge its existence and keep himself balanced by using techniques of rest, meditation, exercise, chanting, and relaxation. Recognizing the need to care for oneself is essential, especially when we spend much time caring for others.
