The Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Stench of Treachery choice we will cover in this guide is a key moment in the video game developed by Ubisoft, and even though I said there is no such thing as good or bad Quest Choices, this time, if you don’t pick the correct one, you will lose a very good opportunity to recruit a Viking.
The story will continue, obviously, but you will miss an event that you’ll never recover from; therefore, I suggest learning about what happens if you don’t pick the correct answer at the end of the AC Valhalla Stench of Treachery quest.
This quest, just like The Seas Of Fate, comes with an opportunity for Eivor, but to seize it, you’ll have to figure out the correct answer.
So let’s start from the beginning.
The Stench of Treachery quest is a part of The Song of Soma, the story arc that takes place in Grantebridgescire.
The whole chapter revolves around Soma and one of the Vikings who betrayed her.
As you play the chapter, you’ll find out that there are 3 possible suspects: Birna, Lif, and Galinn; and even though all of them have a reason to betray Soma, just one is guilty.
At the end of the Stench of Treachery quest, Soma will ask you who is the traitor.
The answer you give is a choice, and since there is only one traitor, there is only one correct answer.
Let’s take them one by one and see how each choice affects the story after this quest.
What Happens If You Say Birna Is The Traitor
As you’ll find while playing The Song of Soma story arc, Birna is in love with Soma, yet Soma has some other plans for her life.
Obviously, this is a good reason, and on top of that, Birna was also a smuggler in the past.
Should you pick her as Soma’s traitor, Soma will be very disappointed in you because you made the wrong choice.
Birna is not the traitor, and she will not join Eivor.
What Happens If You Say Lif Is The Traitor
Lif is also a possible suspect, especially because he wants to take Soma’s place.
He’s a very jealous type of guy who doesn’t like how Soma rules, and the yellow paint you’ll discover while playing the story arc, is also a good clue.
Should you pick him as Soma’s traitor, again, you would be wrong, and Soma will be disappointed, while Birna will not join your clan.
This leaves us with one possible suspect who is also the traitor.
What Happens If You Say Galinn Is The Traitor
Besides the fact that Gallin is a traitor, he is also a bit crazy.
He constantly talks about his visions, and he will do anything to fulfill them.
I mean, he even put his life at risk, so you can only imagine that betraying Soma is not a big thing.
If you pick him, you’ll make the correct choice for this quest, and Soma will be indeed upset to find out that she was betrayed by the man she saved.
But she will be grateful that you found him.
On top of that, Birna will join the Raven Clan and will soon move to your settlement once you complete the story arc in Grantebridgescire.
So now you know who is the traitor in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Stench of Treachery quest. Make sure you act accordingly and don’t make false accusations.
