While exploring the Constantine district, north of the Romani HQ, but south of the blacksmith's shop I found a small courtyard with a well wherein a drunk man is... well, being drunk. Every time I approach this courtyard, there he is, being drunk. The problem is he's got a red target on top of his head, which usually means he's part of some mission.
I first noticed him during the Master Assassin mission, "The Trickster, Part 2" where I was tailing a rogue Romani. I poisoned him then, thinking he was related to the quest. However, I still had to kill the Romani in order to complete the quest.
I've poisoned him, stabbed him a dozen ways, arrowed him, bombed him, called assassins on him, grabbed him and thrown him, tripped him, etc, and I can't seem to figure out what he's for and why he's on my radar as a target. Every time he dies, if I leave the area he resets. Killing him is worth about 20% awareness as well.
It's been several saves/reloads since I first encountered him, and there he is, enjoying his wine and staggering about. What's the point of this guy?
Is this just a glitch, or is there some mission I need him for?
