Can't complete quest due to incompatible traits

So I'm doing the legendary fountain thing with my spy.

I randomized his traits, and he ended up with Solitary and Eloquent, plus the Insecure fatal flaw. I'm supposed to make him get lonely before returning to the fountain, and now my quest performance is tanking because Solitary and Insecure are incompatible.

The Solitary trait gives a bunch of positive moodlets (+15 for "I can do it on my own" and +15 for "Enjoying solitude". I'd maxed my quest meter to platinum, but it just keeps degrading because the Solitary trait won't allow him to get the Lonely moodlet he needs to progress with the quest.

Seems like a major oversight by EA. And, for a game-breaking glitch, there's zero information on this issue anywhere... Am I really the only one who's encountered this bug? is there a cheat I can use to fix it?

    Do you have cheats enabled? (it's kind of a hassle in this game, but there are how-tos online). If you do, I believe you can use those to change your Hero's traits, which would be the only way forward from this glitch. Ordinarily, incompatible traits don't allow you to choose them at the same time, but it sounds as if someone missed flagging these as "do not mix" in development.

    Good luck sorting it out!

    I don't use cheats in Medieval beyond rerollQuests. But I looked everywhere online and couldn't find any information about this issue.

    I was eventually able to complete the quest though. I found out, by randomly clicking around the screen, that there's a self-interaction you can do to get the Lonely moodlet. It's not mentioned anywhere in the quest instructions, or in the description (when you hover over the step), so definitely an oversight on EA's part.

    That's how The Sims Medieval has been made. If you make a hero like that, the only way "out" is to feed him to the pitmonster and make a new.

    Thankfully I didn't have to resort to that, though I was almost desperate enough to consider it.
