In Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Griseld is an NPC and a woman you’ll need to save for a Mystery you can complete while exploring Suthsexe.

This specific quest featured in the latest Assassin’s Creed video game developed by Ubisoft; is very short, but in case you need help completing it, the following guide or walkthrough; explains what you have to do.

The Mystery is named Aflanc The Terrible, and as usual, this World Event must be completed in order to get 100% completion in Suthsexe.

Your goal is to save Griseld before she is drowned by her father, who goes by the name of Bad Father. The reason is pretty obvious.

By stopping Griseld’s sacrifice, you’ll also solve the mystery behind Aflanc The Terrible, who (according to Griseld’s dad) is a satanic sea beast.

Where To Find Griseld & Her Bad Father In AC Valhalla

In order to start this Mystery, first, you’ll want to find Griseld.

As you can see, she is located northeast of Guildford and south of Briggworth. This is the location where the mystery starts.

When you get to the spot on my map, you’ll find Griseld, who is about to be sacrificed by her own father in order to please Aflanc, the satanic sea beast.

This sacrifice should stop the floods Aflanc sent, so the next thing you’ll want to do is to stop this madness and free Griseld.

Once you do that, you’ll find more about Aflanc, Griseld, and the Bad Father, who is clearly nuts. And a very rude fellow too.

While talking to them, Griseld’s father will show you that Aflanc is in the lake behind you, so your next goal is to end this nonsense by finding out what is going on.

Who Is Aflanc The Terrible

While standing close to Griseld, look at the lake behind her, and you’ll see a floating platform.

Jump into the lake and dive all the way down to spot a Viking shipwreck.

Scan the area, and you’ll be able to see several items you can loot.

The most important one (or the item you’re looking for) is a Viking Ship Rope like the one pictured below.

Grab it, then return to the surface and talk to Griseld. Now, you’ll trigger a very interesting cutscene that should answer all your questions.

The long story short is that Griseld’s father knew that Aflanc is just a story, but he used it in order to get rid of his daughter. So basically, he wanted to kill her and use Aflanc as an excuse.

Truly a crazy fellow.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to apply the justice this guy deserves, but the good thing is that you saved Griseld, and her father will never bother anyone again. Hopefully.

That’s how you save Griseld from drowning for the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Aflanc The Terrible quest, so let’s focus on the Mad Monk next.
