After accepting the quest, visit Clara at Svarog’s Base in the Robort Settlement area and ask her about the problem. She will brief you on how a thief has begun stealing machine parts in their locality, which the vagrants had worked hard to obtain. The thief had managed to remain undetected until they passed by a patroller.


That said, you will be tasked with investigating the situation at Vagrant Camp. Interrogate the witness to learn that the thief is armed with a metal weapon.

Continue down the path and search for more clues at the marked location, which will take you to a malfunctioning Automaton Spider. To prevent it from running away, enter into combat with the robot. Taking him out should be easy with any Wind or Lightning character in Honkai Star Rail.

The Automaton Spide will stop functioning, and Clara will decide to repair it. Meanwhile, you will be teleported to Svarog’s mansion to listen to their conversation on how to fix the robot.

Now, take the elevator to the Machine Graveyard and talk to a robot named Toby. It will lead you to an Automaton Direwolf’s body, followed by an Automaton Beetle, where you will learn about both their characteristics.

After picking up the second machine, hand it over to Clara, back in Svarog’s Base. Once the repair is complete, it will show signs of trouble, which will fade away after you defeat it in battle, concluding the end of the companion quest.
