After witnessing the beheading of the fledgling's Sire, and the outburst from Nines Rodriguez, Prince LaCroix sends the fledgling to Santa Monica, wherein they will meet an agent of his named Mercurio. The player is provided with their first haven above Trip's Pawnshop. Before leaving the apartment, there is a note next to the computer which will trigger the side quest The Regent's Riddle.

Once the email has been read, pick up the:

  • $100 in the desk drawer
  • Watch on the bathroom floor
  • Pill bottle in the medicine cabinet
  • Three Blood Packs in the refrigerator. (If you're a Ventrue they will be blue blood packs.)

After leaving the room, examine the newspaper down the hall. This will activate the Carnival of Death questline. Once outside, a short cutscene will show an injured Mercurio crawling into his apartment building. Enter the building.

A trail of blood leads the fledgling to apartment #4, where they'll find Mercurio lying broken and battered on his couch. Speak with him to learn that he was jumped by some thugs down by the beach while trying to purchase some Astrolite explosive. He'll then ask the fledgling to retrieve both the explosive and his money, which will trigger the Surf's Up quest. Speaking with him further, specifically about his injuries, will trigger the side quest The Pain of Being Mercurio.
