    This task is the third in a series of three. It follows the task 'Battling the Shissar' and begins with Guard Captain Parvus at location -604, -7, -31 in Katta Castrum (inside one of the tents just south of the central pyramid).

    You say, 'Interesting?'

    Guard Captain Parvus says 'I thought you'd never ask! The Shissar you've killed so far were merely the underlings and easily replaceable. If we really want to slow down the Shissar army, we'll need to cut it off at the [head]!'

    You say, 'I'll cut it off at the head!'

    You have been assigned the task 'Beheading the Snake'.

    Guard Captain Parvus says 'Our intelligence reports that the attacking Shissar scouts are coordinated by a commander by the name of Zzarishazum. It certainly won't stop the Shissar attacks completely, but killing their commander will certainly slow them down and perhaps cause some confusion in their ranks. Take the worms head from his shoulders Aldius!'

    Kill Commander Zzarishazum 0/1 (Katta Castrum)

    Commander Zzarishazum spawns at loc 2804, 3040

    Speak with Guard Captain Parvus 0/1 (Katta Castrum)

    You say, 'Hail, Guard Captain Parvus'

    Guard Captain Parvus says, 'Well done, you have slain Commander Zzarishazum and slowed the shissar attacks for now. The Castrum Praetorians are in your debt.'

    Your faction standing with Combine Empire Merchants got better.

    Any idea what you do with the 3 items you get for the 3 tasks? The usage of the Dusty pottery Fragment, Smooth Um Handle and the Dusty Pottery Splinter?

    Can get this task by saying INTERESTING then HEAD. Not sure if completion of #1 and #2 are required or not .. I got a yellow text on completion of #2 with the word (interesting) noted.
