With the letter in hand, head to Cydonia on Mars in the Sol System to find Haddie.

You need to make your way into the Mining Colony of Cydonia near the ramp and find the Cydonia Residential entrance on your left.

It is an orange-colored door, opposite The Trade Authority Outpost you may remember visiting during the Delivering Devils and Runaway missions.

You will find Haddie Gustavsson alone, near the coffee table or the gym in the open hall down the stairs. She has short blonde hair with half braids and is wearing an orange shirt with blue overalls.

Find Haddie in the Cydonia Mining Colony.

Talk to her and hand over the letter Zawadi tasked you with. She will be happy to hear about it and wishes she could meet her in person but she came here to Cydonia to find peace after her son’s passing. With the letter delivered, A Parting Gift side mission will be completed in Starfield.
