Ugly Baby is a Quest in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

"Geralt knew Uma currently resided at Crow's Perch. The baron's bandits, hungry for a bit of unrefined entertainment, had made Uma their jester. Geralt knew he would have to put an end to this farce, take the unfortunate being from Velen and, with Yennefer's help, try to lift the curse that held him.

It turned out to be Avallac'h - a powerful elven Sage whom Geralt had encountered during his previous adventures. Breaking his curse proved extraordinarily difficult and, though the treatments suceeded, they had deposited the elf on the brink of death.

Luckily, he still had a sound mind in his tattered body and was able to pass on the message they had waited so long to hear - Ciri was alive. Avallac'h had hidden her from the Wild Hunt on the Isle of Mists, a plae tucked outside of time and space.

Yet even there she was not truly safe and, sooner or later, the wraiths would find her. It was clear to everyone that fleeing and hiding once more would only delay the inevitable. Geralt thus decided to fetch Ciri from the Isle of Mists and, with her and his friends at his side, give fight ti her pursuers.
Before this could happen,however, Geralt once again had the honor to face the emperor of Nilfgaard. Emhyr had run out patience and demanded that Geralt report back on any progress he had made in his search for Ciri. Geralt presented Uma to the emperor and explained the unsightly fellow's role in the investigation. The emperor had hoped Geralt would return with someone other than a demented monstrosity, but ultimately recognized the creature as a solid lead in the search for his daughter Cirilla and handed over a portion of the reward he had promised the witcher. Geralt never revealed exactly how much that amounted to - he never did place much value on coin - but i wager, dear reader, it considerably exceeded the standard fees witcher received.

During the audience Yennefer hit upon an idea for lifting Uma's curse - though, not for the first time,she refused to share any details with Geralt. She merely told him to ride as fast as possible for Kaer Morhen, the famous keep of the witchers from the School of the Wolf - the home Geralt had not seen for some time, save in his dreams."

This quest begins automatically after completing Family Matters, The Ladies of the Wood, Nameless and The Plays The Thing. If you completed Last Wish and told Yennefer your desire to be with her, additional romance options are available during No Place Like Home.

This quest is a tracking quest that occurs throughout a series of other quests. The quest tracks when each are completed. Return to Crow's Perch in Velen.

If you have not yet completed Family Matters, head to the Baron's study and tell him that getting Uma may be the key to finding Ciri. You will then be directed to the stables. If you have completed the quest, head to Crow's Perch and speak with the sergeant in the castle who will send you to the stables. Head to the courtyard and speak to the stablemaster about Uma. Head out through the forest where you will be stopped by a group of soldiers where you will be told to ride to Vizima.

At Vizima, report to the emperor however you wish. Uma may be his daughter under a curse. You're given half the prize with the other half promised when Ciri is returned. You can answer how you wish. Speak to Yennefer about the curse and you will make for Kaer Morhen.

Uppon arriving in Kaer Morhen, Vesemir will welcome you. You can comment about a bed being thrown from the window, and find what's left of said bed in the main courtyard. You can use your Witcher senses to find one of Triss' earrings which you can take and give to her when you next see her.

This quest now comes to an end and you may now begin any of these 3 quests: Disturbance, To Bait a Forktail, and The Final Trial. After these 3 finish, this quest will resume again.
