Speak with Mislav.
Depending on your dialog choices, he may tell you an interesting story about his partner from the stables.
Geralt: Do you know him?
Mislav: We served at the lord's manor together, where the black army's encamped now. He was a stable hand, I was the lord's hunter. But that was before... well, a long time ago.
Geralt: Before what?
Mislav: Before they drove me from the village
Geralt: What'd you do?
Mislav: Nothin' I'm a freak. Sorry, I'd rather not talk about it.
Geralt: I'm a freak, too.
Mislav: Aye, but of another kind.
Geralt: If it's lycanthropy, I can help.
Geralt: Lycanthropy. Werewolves? Handled a few cases in the past. It's usually a simple curse that...
Mislav: The lord's son, Florian. And I... we loved each other. Dieter walked in on us in the stables. They drove me away... Florian hanged himself. Lord started drinkin, and the estate fell into ruin. That's the long and short of it.
Geralt: I'm sorry.
Mislav: Ah, ancient history now. I was to show you where I found the Nilfgaardians. Come.
- If you previously did not agree to help the hunter kill the Wild Dogs, he kills them on his own. You will have to wait a bit until he finishes killing them all before getting the chance to talk to him.
