Proof of Justice is a side quest in Octopath Traveler 2 that unlocks after you complete Proof of Guilt and Proof of Innocence. Judge Astell has been murdered, and it’s rumored that Meylan is being framed for the crime. Speak to the Spectator in the court in Timberain, Leaflands, to initiate the quest and find justice.

    Gather Clues

    There are two other NPCs that you can interact with in the courthouse aside from the Spectator: the Clerk and the Court Reporter. Use a Path Action on the Clerk and talk to the Court Reporter to glean important information that will act as clues.

    You’ll learn from the Clerk that Meylan is a sincere guy that was taken in by his aunt who lived in the backstreets of New Delsta. The Court Reporter tells you what he’d do if he were the criminal. Take notes of this information and prepare to head out.

    Southern Timberain Trail

    Head to the Southern Timberain Trail by taking the southern exit in Timberain. Cross the bridge and then take a right. You’ll see a dock in the foreground. Use the dock and take your canoe to the dock that’s just to the north. You’ll notice an item glinting on the ground. Pick it up to acquire the Stolen Sword, the weapon used to murder Judge Astell.

    It seems the Spectator knew what he was talking about. With that out of the way, it’s time to head to New Delsta.

    New Delsta

    Fast Travel to New Delsta and then go to New Delsta: Backstreets. Take the alley toward the Game Parlor and you’ll see the Dour Elderly Woman to the right. Use a Path Action such as Scrutinize on her to learn the killer’s motive.

    Now it’s time to bring the evidence to the court and watch the story unfold.
