A feathered mantle
This shoulder-mantle of white feathers belonged to the heroine Swan, until you captured her. She'd foolishly tried to help out a group of renegade Arachnos who might have grown into a real threat. Too bad for them they crossed your path in an escapade you remember simply as:
Westin Phipps had heard rumors going around among the wretches who frequent Haven House that a group of Rebel Arachnos from Warburg had left Marshal Blitz's service and struck out on their own. According to the word on the street, they were now hiding in Grandville, right under Lord Recluse's feet. Phipps had learned a likely location for one of their leaders, and had come up with a plan to catch the rest. First, he sent you in defeat one of the Rebels, a Fortunata named Amyelee, and steal her ID. Once that was done, Phipps could have another Fortunata impersonate her to draw out more of the Rebels and learn who was helping them.
It wasn't long before Fortunata Millia's impersonation of the Captured Amelee paid off. She'd learned who was helping the rebels, but needed your help to get out. It turns out that Rebels were getting assistance from Longbow and Swan of the Vindicators in exchange for information on Weaver-1, Arachnos' chief engineer. You got her out with the information all right, but her fate after that sounded grim. Westin Phipps has no qualms about keeping his secrets.
The remaining rebels tried to make a break for it and hid out with Longbow. Too bad for them Phipps knew where to send you. You made a clean sweep of it. Both of the remaining Rebel leaders, the data, and you even captured the heroine Swan. They let you keep her feathered mantle as a trophy before Arachnos guards took her away.
