Tikiwara Questline: Beza VTC

Question

So why does the soul of Beza in level three of the Engwithian Substation fail to be mentioned or 'reaped' by Xoti?  She doesn't even wave her lantern around.

it could be explained better, but anything you see with the purple visual effect is only for the Watcher and is usually a memory of some kind. from the perspective of your party you're just standing their gazing off into nothing. 

this is also why everybody freaks out when you manifest those spirits in Neketaka.

Then why does Xoti pass "wisps of essence" by the by, bit the ash statues she has to perform her rites on?... "just to be sure" telling her their souls are obliterated by Eothas seems to fail to have any effect on that.

That was a "wisp of essence", not a soul in lvl 3 area. Its like a tiny fragment of memory. Her soul is stuck in the corrupted adra. That's why Xoti was silent probably. 

Instances where there are purple balls and she sucks them up with her lantern.  The purple energy may be invisible to her but she evidently trusts the watcher enough to know that they are seen by him, and the physical mannerisms exhibited when the Watcher is communing with one.

For example... the soul down in the Ancient City below the Gullet in Neketaka...  The dude that was trying to smuggle a young Ropara woman and some Ropara children.  More examples can be given of this exchange...

On a side note, it also seems silly that the Ropara Woman is willing to abandon her home, culture, and beliefs in the Deadfire;  Yet, that is the only option to save them.  There are a number of other options that would save them from their fate as the unemployed in a growing big city, think do I. 

 

Kind of like that Nobleman's daughter that was to be sacrificed to Skaen... Why would a watcher, Lord of Caed Nue, not have the option of offering her protection...?...  Cause she thinks it's a better option to go on the run without money, skills, food, or supplies...?...

I understand your concern regarding the contradictory behavior of Xoti. In my opinion if she just swung her lantern in lvl3 and couldn't pick up the soul, cause it is stuck in the adra piller would have made more sense. 

 

From a graphical and technical point of view, the whole conversation starts with clicking the soul/body which is probably considered as one entity/model. So if xoti's lantern movement would remove the soul graphical effect, it would also remove the interactive feature of the body resulting the items in her body inaccessible if you didn't pick those in the initial dialogue chain.

 

This is an ambiguous scenario, let's hope the devs will shed some light.
