DetailedLeave Mercurio's apartment building and head down the street towards the Medical Clinic.
The Medical Clinic has two entrances, one in the very front and another in the alley around the back. Depending on clan or preference, taking the back entrance will avoid any unwanted sightings, especially for the Nosferatu. When choosing the front door, the clinic receptionist will demand a reason as to why the fledgling is simply walking in. With at least two points in Persuasion, the fledgling may convince her they are either fixing the building's network or retrieving personal items.
There are several areas of interest in the Medical Clinic, including an important one in Room 1, on the first floor. A wounded woman lies on an examination table covered in blood. Speak with her to obtain the quest Trick or Treatment, which may result in the fledgling receiving their very own ghoul.
Continuing down the hallway on the first floor, find a room marked "Dr. Malcolm St. Martin." Getting inside this room is the primary objective for this quest. There are a couple different ways of getting into this room, but the easiest is to use a lockpick, which can be obtained from the tutorial or purchased from Trip's Pawnshop. This will only work with a rank of four in the Lockpicking Feat, however — if needed, use Bloodbuff to increase the required feat. There is also a key to the office, though somewhat tricky to obtain.
To get Malcolm's Office Key, head to the second floor of the clinic and into the Security room. Here, find a Maintenance Room Key which will open the door marked "Maintenance." Now, climb up into the air ducts and drop down the tunnel to the right. Open the next duct opening to drop into a previously inaccessible room that contains Malcolm's Office Key.
Regardless of which way used to get inside, grab the three Morphine Bottles on Malcolm's desk and bring them back to Mercurio. ( Humanity Gain, 1XP, quest complete)
- If the fledgling is a Malkavian, an alternate way to obtain the key to the second floor is to use Dementation with the receptionist at the front desk.
- If the fledgling is a Ventrue, an alternate way to obtain the key to the second floor is to Dominate the receptionist at the front desk.
