Dealing with criminals jades a man's soul.

Oublek is the local "vital relations link". He pays bounties to adventurers who complete side quests for him.

When you first speak to him, he assumes you are the bounty hunter Greywolf, come to collect your reward. How you deal with this mistake affects your future interactions with Oublek.

Note: In the original Baldur's Gate and in the Enhanced Edition before the 2.5 update, this only happens if at least one party member is male.

When killing him after getting him the emeralds, he correctly have them in inventory while also having 300 gold less in his inventory.
