...

 

ScreenShot884_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

Waiting for Serana?

 

ScreenShot885_batch2.jpg

 

!

 

ScreenShot886_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

I guess Lord Harkon doesn't trust you enough to let you into the inner court. 

 

ScreenShot887_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

Veris and Veska!?

 

ScreenShot888_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don't worry we're not up to anything.

 

ScreenShot889_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

We just wanted to have a friendly chat.

 

ScreenShot890_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

Ahh shit.

 

ScreenShot891_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

What do you two want?

 

ScreenShot892_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

My my, you're suspicious.

 

ScreenShot893_batch2.jpg

 

 

We only have a gift for you...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A gift?

 

ScreenShot895_batch2.jpg

 

Spoiler

 

*Clang*

 

ScreenShot896_batch2.jpg

ScreenShot897_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

Woah.

 

ScreenShot898_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

She thought this would pique your interest.
It's called Soul Cutter, curtesy of Aria Bal.

 

ScreenShot899_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

Master Aria thinks you'll need it sometime soon.

 

ScreenShot900_batch2.jpg

ScreenShot901_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

*Shing*

 

ScreenShot902_batch2.jpg

 

 

It's so sleek. It's a beautiful sword.

 

ScreenShot903_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

Aria says you're Serana's protector now. 

 

ScreenShot905_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

But why are you giving this to me? What's your true motive?

 

ScreenShot904_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

Oh dear, must we always be scheming? 

 

ScreenShot906_batch2.jpg

 

We're just following orders... Master wants Serana alive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, it's just a gift?

 

ScreenShot908_batch2.jpg

 

Why don't you want it?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have no use for such archaic weapons.

 

ScreenShot912_batch2.jpg

 

 

You're welcome to return it if you don't want it.

 

...

 

ScreenShot911_batch2.jpg

 

Spoiler

 

 

 

How about this one?

 

ScreenShot913_batch2.jpg

 

 

It's called An Accounting of the Scrolls.

 

ScreenShot915_batch2.jpg

 

Oh sweetheart,
I've read every book The Empire has on the scrolls, and many more.

 

ScreenShot916_batch2.jpg

 

Then have you read Dwemer Inquiries by Thelwe Ghelein or The Battle of Red Mountain?

 

 

ScreenShot917_batch2.jpg

 

Ah yes, I have.

 

 

 

I must say I'm surprised to meet a brilliant mind like you here!

 

ScreenShot919_batch2.jpg

 

No offense but I expected The Dawnguard to be more barbaric.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well, some of us are. 

 

ScreenShot918_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

Regardless, it seems the elder scroll is in safe hands.

 

 

ScreenShot920_batch2.jpg

 

Indeed.

 

 

Anyway, I was going to ask you if you think an elder scroll was involved at the Battle of Red Mountain...

 

ScreenShot921_batch2.jpg

 

Ahhhhh, the Battle of Red Mountain. A mysterious day.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The day that simultaneously led to the disappearance of the Dwarves, and the creation of the Dark Elves.

 

ScreenShot923_batch2.jpg.4850a252c66af9cd6b522d1591b795a5.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

But do you think an elder scroll was involved?

 

ScreenShot922_batch2.jpg

 

Clearly some powerful magic was at work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

...

 

ScreenShot924_batch2.jpg

 

The Dark Elves have three main deities that they worship.

 

ScreenShot925_batch2.jpg

 

Boethia, Azura, and Mephala;
all figures of darkness, deceit and tracheary.

 

ScreenShot926_batch2.jpg

 

I believe what transpired that day...

 

...was the work of gods.   

ScreenShot927_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dexion, Isran is getting impatient.

 

ScreenShot928_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

He wants the scroll reading to be done at least a day earlier.

 

ScreenShot929_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

What!

I already told him.

 

ScreenShot930_batch2.jpg

 

Reading an elder scroll is precarious. It requires elevated magical energy. 

 

ScreenShot931_batch2.jpg

 

 

Without an ancestor glade, even a moth priest like me will definitely need the full moon to read it.

 

ScreenShot932_batch2.jpg

 

 

Fine. But Isran says he will be busy that night.

 

ScreenShot933_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

You're going to have to read it without him present.

 

ScreenShot934_batch2.jpg

 

What!? What in Oblivion could be so important?

 

ScreenShot936_batch2.jpg

 

Spoiler

ScreenShot937_batch2.jpg

ScreenShot938_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

Hey Sofia, are you in there?

 

ScreenShot939_batch2.jpg

 

 

*Exhale*

 

ScreenShot941_batch2.jpg

ScreenShot940_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

Come in, Gunmar.

 

ScreenShot943_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

The healers say you'll be fully recovered in a couple weeks so I...

 

ScreenShot944_batch2.jpg

 

By the gods! Put some clothes on!

 

ScreenShot945_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hmph. It's nothing you probably haven't seen.

 

ScreenShot947_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

Still, thanks for helping me recover, Gunmar.

 

ScreenShot956_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well...

 

 

 

ScreenShot949_batch2.jpg

 

How do I look?



 

 

 

 

 

My injuries are almost gone.

 

ScreenShot950_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


!!!!!!!

 

ScreenShot953_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

You look like you've never seen a woman before.

 

ScreenShot948_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Come on,

 

ScreenShot951_batch2.jpg

 

Help me get into some new clothes.

 

ScreenShot952_batch2.jpg

ScreenShot954_batch2.jpg

 

Spoiler

 

You're finally here.

 

ScreenShot957_batch2.jpg

 

 

Sorry to keep you waiting. The meeting went longer than I expected.

 

ScreenShot958_batch2.jpg

 

 

So... Who is it? Who is Harkon sending after the scroll??

 

ScreenShot959_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

That's the thing.

 

ScreenShot960_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

I've never heard of her.

 

ScreenShot962_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

She must be a relatively new member of the clan. Of course, I was asleep a long time so I'm sure she's still powerful.

 

ScreenShot963_batch2.jpg

 

 

So, it's a woman, but we don't know anything about her?

 

ScreenShot964_batch2.jpg

 

 

No, I suspect she's a magic user,
but I don't even know if she lives in the castle.

 

ScreenShot965_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

Maybe you could ask someone about her?

 

ScreenShot966_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

I could, but I'd rather not arouse suspicion.

 

ScreenShot968_batch2.jpg

 

I think it's time we return to Fort Dawnguard.

 

ScreenShot969_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

Right.

 

ScreenShot970_batch2.jpg

 

This is probably our last night here.

 

ScreenShot971_batch2.jpg

 

 

I'm going to miss it. The garden is calming.

 

ScreenShot978_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

By the way, that girl Harkon is sending, what's her name?

 

 

ScreenShot974_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

Her name is Luna Lenith.

 

ScreenShot973_batch2.jpg

 

Spoiler

ScreenShot870_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

There you are. I knew you'd be in a tower somewhere, you recluse.


ScreenShot869_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

Lord Harkon has a task for you.

 

ScreenShot872_batch2.jpg

 

Luna.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A task? From Molag Bal's lapdog?



It's been decades.

 

ScreenShot876_batch2.jpg

 

What could be so important that he needs help from a dark elf like me?

 

ScreenShot878_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

Vampire hunters have the Lord's elder scroll,
and their moth priest will read it soon. Your task is to stop them.

 

ScreenShot871_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

I thought Lord Harkon keeps his elder scroll hidden.

 

ScreenShot8771_batch2.jpg

 

And why would he choose a widow like me for this task?

 

 

 

 

This is a different scroll. A new scroll.

 

ScreenShot880_batch2.jpg

 

The Lord choose you because he doesn't want an outright slaughter. 

That would only get the attention of the Jarls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I see. He wants an infiltration.

 

ScreenShot881_batch2.jpg

 

My skills are certainly a match.

 

 

 

Good.
 

If you succeed, Lord Harkon will offer you a place in the inner court.

 

ScreenShot879_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

...

 

ScreenShot873_batch2.jpg

 

 

 

 

I will not fail him.
