Framed for Murder is an evil side quest in Fable III.


You can find Russell next to the clump of three or four stalls in Bowerstone Old Quarter. He tells you to kill Thomas Kaidkin, a painter whose paintings Russell always buys hoping for a huge profit, however no one else wants to buy them because the painter is unknown. Russell wants you to kill the painter so that he becomes famous and his paintings will sell. The painter should be painting in the Brightwall Village town square.

Moral Outcomes
  • 15 Evil for completing the quest.

  • The man Russell wants to eliminate is named Thomas Kaidkin, an obvious reference to the artist Thomas Kinkade.
  • It is possible to kill Thomas without being caught by getting between him and the picture he is painting and moving him over to the bridge.
