The Caged Jotun is an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla NPC; you will find close to a Jotun female who is trying to free him. The Caged Jotun’s name is Skami, and you must decide his fate. When you find the Jotun female, if you accept to help her, you’ll trigger The Puppeteer World Event.

Your objective in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla The Puppeteer is to free the Caged Jotun, thus helping his lover or the female outside the cage. All you have to do is find the key to his cage, but things are trickier here.

AC Valhalla The Puppeteer World Event Location

Look for the Jotun female and the Caged Jotun in Jotunheim at the location marked on my map. As you can see, the event occurs southwest of Skrymir’s Mitten, northwest of Ymir’s Altar, and northeast of Heart Of The Wood.

Where To Find the Hunter House Key

To complete the AC Valhalla Puppeteer World Event, first, you’ll have to talk to the Jotun Female. When you approach the location on my map, go around the small house near the pond, and you’ll find the Caged Jotun and the Jotun Female.

Talk to her; she’ll tell you that a hunter caged the Jotun or the female’s lover. She also mentions a key you must find. Now, go around the house, and while standing in the pond behind it, shoot the red locker on the door. Next, open the door, and you’ll see that, basically, this door is placed on a wall. Doesn’t make too much sense. Well, once you pass through the door on the other side, you’ll be able to spot two totems like those in my image below.

Pass through them, wait for the door behind you to close, then open it again. When you do, you’ll find a hidden room. Inside is the hunter mentioned by the Jotun woman. The next step is to loot the place because there is also a chest containing one of the Ymir’s Stones you don’t want to miss.

The Caged Jotun Choices

Also, read the Letter to a Secret Lover, which reveals that the hunter inside this house is the husband of the woman you just met. And that she cheated on him. Furthermore, the letter outlines that the hunter beat the woman when he found that she cheated. This is a classic case of domestic violence, don’t you think?

What you want to do next is to look for the woman’s hairbrush on the table. When you pick it up, the hunter will most likely wake up, and you’ll have to defeat him. After the fight, you’ll have several choices. If you kill him, you’ll get the cage key from his dead body. If you threaten him, he’ll give you the key.

All these choices will help you end this mystery, but who is right?

None of them. The Jotun woman cheated on his husband, and she is a liar because she “forgot” to tell you this.

The husband beat the woman, which is not acceptable. Leaving the area without making a choice is also unacceptable because, basically, you agree with both of them.

So, if you kill the hunter, you’re a murderer. If you don’t, he’ll find the woman and kill her. If you don’t act, you’re an accomplice, even if you disagree. This is one of those quests that don’t have a fair solution, so you’ll have to decide for yourself.

Have Something To Add? Do It Here:

  1. I think it best to kill the husband. Not far from where the house is, there is a tower where Skami hides out at. There’s a note to his “treasured one” saying that he will kill her husband if he can. That he won’t be able to hurt her anymore. The reason she cheated is because her husband abuses her. I feel he is in the most wrong here.
