I know with others that is the case. Does that hold true for the Principi too with Serafen?

Serafen doesn't really care either way. He's a pirate first and Principi second. Obviously, he doesn't like if you mess with the Principi because he's in it, but he won't just leave ya, at least he never left me when I had -5 Principi rep.

I sided with the Vailians and the Huana, brought Serafen along each time and he was good as gold. None of the other factions really require you to fight the Principi, so I think as long as you're not antagonising them he's chill.

Nope, I double-crossed the Principi and killed both their leaders, Serafen didn't bat an eyelid. I think he only cares about slavers.

You can also probably antagonize him into leaving by being a cruel jackass or specifically dumping on him, but his loyalty to the Watcher is not reliant on the Watcher's loyalty to the Principi.

He left me because I helped the slavers twice, but... uh... one of the times was because I "bought" a slave in order to set him free lmao!

Yes, there were a few moments I had to pretend to support slavery in order to find out about Furrante's plans or set someone free. And Serafen didn't understand. But in most cases I didn't lose reputation with him.

The problem is you can only "help" the slavers twice before he leaves you.

I think I messed a bit these quests. I wanted to help Aeldys, but also to get kill the leaders of the tribe and get whatever reward the slaver boss would give me. For roleplaying reasons of course. I had already maximized experience and I had more than enough money.

 

In the end I couldn't set the prisoners free (not a problem, since they were disrespectful and my character didn't care about them) and Aeldys wasn't pleased, but I could still progress supporting her.

 

The way I did it, Serafen had the satisfaction of dealing with the slaver and even though Aeldys doesn't mention it (like Furrante), I assume I got a seat in the Principi council. Onekaza was displeased too, since I failed her quest even before she gave it. But who cares right? ;)
