It seems some villages out near Fódlan's Throat have been having some trouble with thieves lately. Holst asked for help dealing with the problem. You mind coming along?
You've received a request from Balthus concerning thieves near Fódlan's Throat. He would appreciate your help in dealing with them.
  1. Seek out and subdue the thieves.
  2. Report to Balthus.
Sorry for dragging you along on that, pal. But hey, would you like to meet Holst sometime? I think he's really interested in you. Maybe we all can meet up the next time we're in his neck of the woods?
