A Solitary Mark is an off-screen companion adventure in Pillars of Eternity.

In-game description[edit | edit source]

The pitch:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
From the Eastern Reach to Aedyr to Old Vailia, people of all ages are manifesting a strange and distinctive mark somewhere on the inside of their left thigh. There appears to be no common link between the individuals, nor has any of them reported any ill effects from the mark, but few think that it is a herald of good things to come.

Some well-traveled Vailians have claimed that a not-so-secret society has taken an interest in the marked people and may have something nefarious in mind for them.

The conclusion:

Items in italics are quoted directly from the game.
It was difficult for [Companion Name] to track down the cult that had taken a special interest in the marked people over such a large area. Eventually, [Companion Name] managed to rout a small cell of the cultists and discovered a wealth of incriminating documents.

The group called themselves the White Flame and believed that the marked individuals were meant to be vessels for a "reincarnation" of Eothas. The cult had started kidnapping marked people and taking them to holding areas for observation and experimentation. A map that [Companion Name] discovered laid out several of these cells as well as new locations that they intended to target.

With the assistance of the Shieldbearers of St. Elcga, [Companion Name] was able to raid one of their strongholds in the Cythwood. It is unclear if the power of the White Flame is truly broken, but the abductions stopped shortly after [Companion Name]'s intervention.
