The Caretakers' Riddle is a quest in Torment: Tides of Numenera.


The Memorialists have placed a whisperlock on the Necropolis' teleport terminal. It's impossible to enter the tombs beneath until the lock is removed.


  • Speak to Motley in the Necropolis. Next, inspect the corpse on the floor. Close their eyes for a quick Gold tide boost and influence with Talira Kyo. Check the pockets to find a scrap of paper with the number 4135 and the name Najma.
  • Talk to Talira Kyo in the Necropolis about the passcode. If you are Gold-dominant, she will believe your claims that you want to protect them and save the people in the Valley from the Endless Gate and tell you the code.
  • Otherwise, you will need to see if there are other Memorialists who know the code. Head back to Ronos Cai'sul and he will mention that a backup plan was for them to find the name of the ceturl prince. Interact with the giant black cat idol enough times to learn it (Guni).
  • Open the whisperlock.
