dropped off percy blythe in the wood... help?

the inner mechanics of traitor’s wood and percy blythe seem to have vexed me once again, so here i am, curious about what exactly i’ve missed.

so, i went through the expeditions into traitor’s wood, then took my scholar of choice to the grave and volunteered my captain for the year and a day of work. we got back, the year commenced, the summerset camp was emptied, and &quotentering the regent’s grave&quot was marked as completed. i thought that was that, but apparently not? i just took percy blythe to the wood, but instead of giving me that slightly happier ending i got him shuffling off into the woods like i hadn’t tamed it. does anyone know what i’ve missed/done wrong?
