The Prophetic Hermit is a side quest in Fable III.


Talk to Karen in Aurora once you have completed Do the Ends Justify the Means? in order to start this quest. You will be given a brain in a jar and told to visit a hermit who lives in the desert. Travel to The Veiled Path and battle your way through any enemies that stand between you and the large stairway at the end of the area. The hermit lives at the top of these stairs, on the left. Once you reach him, you simply need to hand him the brain and wait while he humorously consults it.

After the quest is finished you may listen to his predictions for your future, which mostly consist of vague descriptions of things you have already done. One of his predictions is Hobson declaring to the hero for everyone in Albion to meet the him/her in the throne room.


A follower of an Auroran prophet wants you to deliver a package into the desert.


By delivering the brain, you have gained some of the hermit's followers, and earned his gratitude. The brain is grateful as well.
