Talk to the lady
To start the quest, you need to find the lady in Yamu.

She’s in the market area.
Talk to her and she’ll tell you that her husband is missing.
Her husband is Klaudios and you have to find him. His location is shown in the map below.
You can grab one of the boats at the dock. Use it to row all the way there.
As you get closer, you can use Senu to pinpoint his location.
You will then find him on a small platform in the lake.
Kill the crocodiles
Surrounding him are three crocodiles. You can kill all of them using bow and arrows.
Aim at the head for slightly higher damage.
Return Klaudios to his wife
Talk to Klaudios. He will obviously be drunk.
Bring him back to his wife. You can use the same boat and he’ll follow you.
The wife’s location is shown below.
Defend Klaudios from the bandits
After reaching the wife, Klaudios remembers why he ran away. Apparently it was a set up by his new wife to get his property.
Kill the bandits that are in the area.
The quest completes after talking to Klaudios again.
