The Essence Emporium might be the most pretentious place in Neon City, but no one deserves to be threatened with violence and blackmailed. Help out Tevin Anastas in the quest Mob Mentality.
How to Unlock Mob Mentality
You unlock the Mob Mentality quest by getting the 'Talk to Tevin Anastas' activity by overhearing people in Bayu Plaza in Neon City or by walking into the Essence Emporium and speaking to him.

Speak to Tevin Anastas
Speak with Tevin Anastas at the counter, and he'll tell you about the trouble he has recently been having with some thugs from the Ebbside. They're threatening him with violence and extorting protection money. Offer to help him out with the thug named Headlock. Hopefully, your version of the Essence Emporium won't be filled with corpses.
Ask Frankie about Headlock
To learn about Headlock's hideout, you need to get the information from Frankie, who runs Frankie's Grab and Go. She'll be reluctant to help, and you'll have a couple of options to get the information.
- Use Persuasion to convince her to let you know the location.
- Use the Neon Street Rat trait dialogue to get her cooperation.
- Pay her 500 Credits to get Headlock's location.
Go to Warehouse 04
Frankie will tell you that Headlock is hanging around Warehouse 04 with the rest of the goons from the Seokgyuh Syndicate.
Deal with Headlock
Once inside, you'll see Headlock hanging around with other thugs. He'll try to act tough, but you can quickly shut down this upstart rookie. Here are the methods you have to deal with Headlock:
- Use the Space Scoundrel trait to threaten him.
- Use Persuasion to convince him he won't make it out of this alive.
- Simply attack and kill Headlock and the rest of his cronies.
Return to Tevin Anastas
You can return to Tevin Anastas at the Essence Emporium and tell him you have dealt with his problem. He'll be pleased and give you your reward.
