Madame Olivia

From Sea of Thieves Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Madame Olivia is a representative for the Order of Souls on Plunder Outpost.

Olivia is the founder of the Order of Souls. She is one of the most ardent mystics of the Trading Company due to an undefined event in her past where the skeletons took something or someone from her. She also has a certain penchant for alliteration, her voice lines including "wreck some ribs", "smash some skeletons" and "crack those clavicles" among others.

Madame Olivia also is the quest giver of The Cursed Rogue Tall Tale.

Official description

Madame Olivia is descended from a long line of conjurers and fortune-tellers who were united in their wish to harness ancient magic for themselves. A brush with one such artefact from the Sea of Thieves showed Olivia her destiny – she would travel there and establish the Order of Souls.

The Order has since developed incantations and rituals to extract secrets and knowledge from the bones and relics of those who came before; specifically, the locations of long-lost treasure hoards, which are traded to the Gold Hoarders. As a performer, Olivia enjoys playing into the occult elements of her work[1].

My name is Madame Olivia of the Order Of Souls. Our business is the breaking of bones.

Whose bones do you want to break, Madame Olivia?

The Skeletons of course!
Seek them out with the information we give you, then smash them to pieces!
Bring back their skulls as proof of their destruction.

There must be more to this than just smashing bones. What about rewards?

There is nothing greater than fracturing femurs!
Than mashing mandibles, trashing tibias and hammering humeri!
Do this and I will reward you handsomely, with gold and other prizes equal to your achievements.

What is an Emissary? (After 2.0.14)

A pirate like you who has a gift for smashing skeletons would be wise to consider becoming an Emissary.
In return for upholding our values and bringing in skulls, you will earn greater rewards.
Essentially, you'd be showing the other Companies that we are a force to be reckoned with. Your devotion would be remembered, I assure you.

I'm guessing the Skeletons aren't your favourite shipmates, then? (Before 2.0.14)

I struggle to put it into words how much I despise those rattling monstrosities.
They took away everything I ever wanted, all I ever loved!
I will not rest until I see every last one of their craniums ground into dust.

During The Cursed Rogue


Madame Olivia

Pray, enter and take respite.
I am Madame Olivia of the Order of Souls, and your arrival was foretold to me...
As was your quest to seek out and destroy the abomination once known as Briggsy.
As you may know, the Order offers bounties for the skulls of those undead wretches who roam the Sea of Thieves.
Yet even I am not permitted to send pirates in pursuit of a Skeleton Lord, for that would be sending them to oblivion.
In life, Briggsy was a flamboyant adventurer who thrived on danger and excitement.
How could she not seek out the fabled Shores of Gold? But now she has been consumed by evil's thrall and is a fearsome foe to all she encounters.
And yet, if the whispers on the wind are true, you have already claimed the Shroudbreaker.
Perhaps there is a chance you might prevail...
Very well. These papers hold fragments of memories of those who pledge allegiance to the Skeleton Lord.
If you can decipher their meanings, they may lead you to artifacts - relics of Briggsy's life.
Bring all that you find to me and I will shine a light into the darkness that awaits you. Go now! I must prepare the ritual ready for your return...


Madame Olivia

Are those Briggsy's precious treasures? Let me see..
Ah, the tools of an adventurer.
I spend so much of my time surrounded by bones, it is sometimes easy to forget that they were once people too..
Tell no-one what you're about to witness! There are some secrets that even we, the Order of Souls, are forbidden to share...
By recall's light and wisdom's might, the past shall point towards the future...
Behold! The true power of the Order of Souls.
There are few left with the knowledge to create an artefact with such... potential.

(Madame Olivia adds the artefacts and some ingredients into a transmutation box, which processes them into an Enchanted Compass)

Imbued with the Order's magic, this compass will point the way to Briggsy, no matter where upon the Sea of Thieves she may be lurking.
Once again, I implore you to be cautious. Death has only made her more formidable.
Should you triumph, return to me with the skull of your enemy.
In exchange for such a valuable prize, I will do all that I can to help you onwards along your journey.


Madame Olivia

The skull of a Skeleton Lord! Oh, I've waited years for this moment...
So few people stop to wonder what the Order of Souls does with the bounties once we have them.
Each skull holds many secrets, memories of old hoards and old encounters, long forgotten.
If Briggsy truly did possess the Shroudbreaker, the missing pieces should lie somewhere within her recollection.
But be warned, such visions are not always easy to interpret.

(Madame Olivia peppers the skull with glowing dust, then inhales the dust to blow onto the skull. She whispers an incantation to activate the skull, then inhales the memory-filled dust.)

Such a long life... There are many memories to sift through, but I can make out a few names...
Tasha, a girl in a tavern, staring in awe as the firelight flickers and great tale are told...
Sudds... A dear friend who threads his way across the wildest oceans by the light of the stars...
Salty... trembling before a blade, revealing the lair of a Trickster.
Wild Rose... True love shining like a beacon that calls across the waves...
Fate has bound you to meet with these wanderers, for they alone know of the precious stones you seek.
I can offer you nothing more than my gratitude and faith that you have the strength to reach the Shores of Gold. Farewell.
