Talk to Lehr – or Reil as the game now shows, contrary to the other descriptions – a couple of times, until he asks you for an Assorted Soup. Enter your Masterchef cookbook and select the Assorted Soup recipe, or go to Free Cooking and add the ingredients if you still don't have the info. The Assorted Soup recipe is the following: 1 egg, 2 cabbage, 3 radish, and 3 mushroom.

Go to a cooking table and make the soup, then return to Reil. The Useless Man Encounter ends right after, giving you 60 diamonds and the Chicken Salad recipe.

Completed: Pension is still not enough. The retired veteran Lehr will keep his “useless” guarding job, but your kindness did give Lehr some comfort.

Chest Clue (require Lv. 2 and above lightsaber): By the bridge south of Cannan Mountains.

Analysis: Search for the retired veteran Lehr.
