Olivia Darque is a villain in need of rescue. She belongs to the Arachnos faction.
In the mission "Secure Olivia Darque from the Longbow ambush", she must be freed from her Longbow captors and escorted back to the mission exit. Once free, she will aggro on everything nearby, and her aggro radius is fairly big, so she may get in trouble if you don't keep an eye on her. She may be in danger if you didn't clear the path before freeing her, as waves of Longbow ambushers (including a boss-level hero) will come after her.
Olivia Darque spawns as a Pet of the level of the mission owner plus one. She must survive for the mission to be successful.
She's a central figure in the Story Arc "Alone in the Darque", where Efficiency Expert Pither will have to learn what has happened with the now vanished Olivia, which she can be found finally in the Shadow Shard.
During this SA she's mentioned to be "The governess of Aeon City", which is strange, taking into account that Dr. Aeon is the governor of Cap au Diable. Her relation with Dr. Aeon hasn't been clarified yet.
Villains may find her:
- in the Secure Olivia Darque from the Longbow ambush mission from Peter Themari, as a Pet and an Ally.
- in the Find Olivia Darque mission from Efficiency Expert Pither as an NPC.
- in the Architect Entertainment buildings of the Rogue Isles as an NPC
