Go to the stairs where the worshippers are and look for the person who matches the description of having tied back hair and wounded right arm. This person can be found on the right side of the stairs (facing upwards) wearing dark blue robes; you can also try to hail him to make him talk, revealing his name as Herman. Once you have spotted the assassin, use the Grab action to apprehend him; make sure that the Hail option shows up to know that you have targeted him correctly for the grab. Spot him before Nadinia’s ceremony finishes or the assassin will make his move.

After apprehending the assassin, Menella, Irmhild, and Nadinia will thank you for your effort. You will then complete the quest and receive 3,500 XP, x5 Jasper, and 18,000 G.
