Seattle Day 1 - Hostile Territory (Dusk)
When you start off for the aquarium, keep going until you hit an alley lined with connected storefronts, including a bakery, a pharmacy, and a bar. You can explore a couple of the stores by breaking windows, but you'll find the ones on the other side of the street are locked. To get into them, you'll need to cross between the two buildings on the second floor.
Enter the Red Dragon bar and look for a staircase to reach the second story. Jump across the alley to get into the far building. You should see stairs that go up to the roof, and a room you can enter nearby with a hole in the floor. Don't drop down; instead, look to the right of the door to find the Strange Relic artifact on a desk.
The relic is a Precursor Orb, a reference to Naughty Dog's Jak and Daxter series. Nabbing it unlocks the Relic of the Sages Trophy.
