Timedquest This quest will expire after the decision to move to Colony 6.

After this quest is completed, Matryona may offer another quest. See Imaginations Tempered.

A Dash of Colour is a Timed Quest in Xenoblade Chronicles. It can be received from Ewan in the Refugee Camp on Bionis' Leg. As with all the quests in the Refugee Camp, it will expire after the residents migrate to Colony 6. If Sharla is in the active party, she will comment.



"Thanks to Ewan's newly-found drive, he and Matryona's relationship is much improved."


Upon completion of the third objective, by giving the paints to Matryona, the Affinity Chart will change:

Unique Comments

Sharla: "You need to stop being so hard on yourself, Ewan. Not a single person here hates you for the decision you took."
Ewan: "Hearing that from you makes all the difference, Sharla. Maybe it is time to move on... But I'm feeling more positive now. I once again feel the desire to put quill to paper! I've written a few lines since Matryona gave me an idea. Things are a little...awkward between us, but it's getting better. Which brings me to the favour I need to ask you."
