Agree to form a task force
It is well that you are here. I have sensed a disturbance in the mystical fabric of this city. I cannot tell what is causing it, but my protege, Infernal, senses something unusual in a nearby cave network. Go to the caves and tell me what you find.
The winds of fate are blowing, Task Force Malakim. Change is in the air.
I believe the code name Task Force Malakim suits you very well.
Sewer @ Founder' Falls (Devouring Earth )
You could sense from Numina's tone that locating the cause of the disturbance quickly is the primary goal of this mission.
Mission Complete: You located the source of the mystical disturbance.
It is well that you freed Fatespinner, but I am still sensing the disturbance. It seems that whatever is causing this has something to do with one of Paragon City's defenders.
I must admit, you are a fine group of heroes.
Investigate facility in Crey's Folly and determine what is going on there
I have sensed a confluence of heroes and negative energy. It is somewhere in the Folly of Crey. I suppose it is not surprising that somethign like this would be connected to those defilers.
Search well and swiftly.
This Facility looks state of the art in terms of technology and security.
Objective: You found a clue!
Mission Complete: You discovered the purpose of the Crey facility.
This is most troubling. We must determine more about this unknown hero. I will call to Manticore, for suggestions on where to seek him.
Investigate the disappearance of Scout
manticore has suggested that we look into the disappearance of a Hero called Scout, who operated in Paragon City, in the early part of the twentieth century. He believes that Nemesis may have more information and has suggested a place to investigate.
It was a long time ago that Scout vanished, I cannot see the connection, but I have learned to trust Manticore on such matters.
Although his name has not been spoken often of late, Scout was one of the first heroes Paragon City ever knew.
Mission Complete: You have uncovered the fate of Scout.
I...thank you. I have dreamed of this for many years, and welcome the peace of death. I must ask you one last favour, a final request. You must find Woodsman. He is trapped somewhere in the city, I know it. I was trying to find him when Nemesis captured me and turned me into this monstrosity. Something...old...took him, tok him from the woods long ago. you must find him, this is my last request...do...not...fail...
Such cruelty! That poor man has been trapped in that living prison for a lifetime. His passing is a blessing upon him. His dying words ring true in my ears, it is the Woodsman we seek. We must find him, but I cannot seem to pinpoint his location.
Task Force Malakim, you are truly a boon to Paragon City.
Talk to Azuria in Atlas Park
We must find a way to pinpoint the location of the Woodsman. Go and speak with Azuria at MAGI. I believe she knows of an object that will help us in this quest.
I am sorry that my senses are being confounded, and I fervently hope that Azuria may aid us.
There is a mystical object known as the Shard of Kalak. It can be attuned to locate and contain the essence of a specific individual by a powerful mystic, such as Numnia. We believe it is currently being held by the Circle of Thorns. Go to the location I will indicate, retrieve the Shard, and then return it to Numina.
Smoke and sulphur interweave to form a pungent odour.
Mission Complete: You retrieved the Shard of Kalak!
Thank you. I will attune the Shard so that you may use it to search for Woodsman. It should not take long.
Scan Paragon City using the Shard of Kalak. Combat opponents to power the artifact.
The Shard of Kalak is ready. You will need to make your way around the city in a specific pattern in order for it to be used appropriately. Start in Perez Park and then work your way around the city, first widdershins and then deosil. Moving in this counterclockwise and then sunwise pattern will build power within the Shard. The Shard will take a few moments to scan, and legend has it that conflict is required to power it. The more enemies of Paragon City you can defeat while carrying it, the likely it is to work.

Defeat x @ Eden
Woodsman is somewhere in Eden then. So close, all this time. I am sorry that your travails have been so burdensome, but since you have performed the pattern, the Shard should lead you to him and allow you to help him. Tread carefully, only destiny herself knows what lies before you.
Find the place where Woodsman is trapped
Go back into Eden, and find the place where Woodsman is trapped. The Shard is now attuned to follow his current location.
This is a dark matter, Task Force Malakim, be prepared for a great battle.
This building is slowly being torn apart by the ravages of nature. Someday soon, there will be nothing left of it.
These caves remind you how much longer than man the earth has been here.
The giant monster was dubbed Jurassik by a hero some time ago, and the name has stuck (though the hero has regrettably disappeared). It appears that Jurassik has been mutated by the many pollutants and chemicals in Crey's Folly. Now, it is a creature of pure violence.
Mission Complete: You have defeated Jurassik and found a clue!
Awarded for completing the final mission of the Task Force.
The Shard now has his essence. I vow to you this day, that I will find a way to make him corporeal again. Paragon City needs him now, more than ever.
You have done a great thing today. I am glad to call you companions. Long shall the city remember the heroic battles of Task Force Malakim.
Souvenir: Soul of the Woodsman
Numina. the greatest mystical heroine of our city spoke to you of a disturbance she had sensed somewhere in Paragon City. Her protege Infernal suggested a possible location. and there you were able to free the hero Fatespinner from the Freakshow.
Still sensing something amiss. Numina locked onto a confluence of energy at a Crey facility. Traveling there you discovered records indicating that Crey had been searching for a hero designated only as 'Generation Zero'.
At somewhat of a mystical impasse. Numina contacted Manticore who pointed you at a Nemesis facility. There you discovered a true horror. A young hero called Scout had been captred by Nemesis a generation ago and turned into one of their Warhulks. You freed him from a living death and he implored you with his dying breath to seek the Woodsman.
With a specific target in mind Numina suggested that you speak to MAGI about a locating device of some kind. That lead you to recover the Shard of Kalak from the Circle of Thorns.
After attuning the Shard. Numina set you upon an arduous path to try and locate Woodsman. The Shard tested your resolve greatly. but you managed to locate the area where Woodsman was abiding.
Following the trial. you ended up in a huge cave network where the Devouring Earth was returning the city back to nature. Within these caverns you encountered Jurassik. a huge legendary beast. Defeating this titan enabled you to gather the essence of Woodsman into the Shard. freeing him from the Devouring Earth's grasp.
