    The following solution was taken from PowerPyx's trophy guide - full credit to PowerPyx.

    This achievement is earned during the main quest The Demolished Woman on Byzantium. To get this side quest you must attempt to turn in Phineas to the board through Udom Bedford. After getting his seal back from Gladys he’ll get you to go to Byzantium to meet Sophia Akande, who will then give you this main quest to prove yourself to her.

    Sophia asks you to “deal with” a cartographer named Rachel Lockwood. If you head to her office and break in, you can find out that she is hiding in the maintenance tunnels under Byzantium. Head down there and “deal with her” however you see fit which will unlock the achievement. You can then return to Sophia when you’re finished to complete the quest.

    Apostle92627Just as a warning, you need 8,000 bits for the seal in addition to the 10,000 for the NavKey for Stellar Bay.

    NOTE: I had to buy the NavKey even after returning the secrets to her.

    I believe you always need to buy the NavKey, you just collect secrets to sell to her to give you money towards it.

    - To get this Side-Mission you must make this decision during the main quest:

    [ Attempt to turn Phineas in to The Board through your conversation with Udom Bedford in the Halcyon Building on The Groundbreaker ]

    - Doing this will get him to tell you that you must get his "Seal" from Gladys for just over 5000 bits I believe. Once you do that he will tell you to go to Sophia on Byzantium.

    - She will then ask you to "Deal with the Cartographer" which caused Felix to get taken off of my squad (by choice lol)

    - Following the quest you'll find she's hiding in the Byzantium Maintenance Tunnels... go down there (shown in the video) and take out that loose end to acquire this achievement :)

    To get this achievement you must complete The Demolished Woman on Byzantium. To get there you must attempt to turn in Phineas to Udom Bedford when you first land on the Groundbreaker.

    After attempting to turn in Phineas, Udom Bedford will ask you to to retrieve his seal from Gladys. This will cost 8000 bits. At this point in the game you probably don't have enough to pay this so Gladys will send you on the mission The Distress Signal as a way to get some.

    The first step for The Distress Signal is to get ADA to play it back the signal on your ship. Then you will be sent to Roseway. In Roseway talk to everyone you can. You should have 3 different objectives to obtain schematics for different people. When you find the schematics you'll have to lie that you didn't find them so you can sell them to Gladys for bits.

    After completing the mission return to Gladys, and sell the schematics to her. You will now have around 9000 bits and can buy back the seal. Udom Bedford will now send you to Byzantium to meet with Sophia Akande. She will give you the quest The Demolished Woman. All you have to do is murder (or spare) Rachel Lockwood, the cartographer.

    Upon dealing with her the achievement will pop.

    Bungling NinjaYou don’t have to kill her. Any of the 3 options available will net you the achievement.
