After being sent to investigate the goings on in Dimhollow Crypt by Isran, the Dragonborn discovers a strange guarded sarcophagus, inside of which is a vampire woman named Serana. Unlike other vampires, she is not hostile. She is also carrying an Elder Scroll. After a bit of catching up on world events, she realises that she has been away for far longer than she initially anticipated and asks the Dragonborn to take her home to Castle Volkihar.

Lead Serana to her home[edit]

The Dragonborn then leads Serana home, using a boat at Icewater Jetty to reach the castle.

Speak to Harkon[edit]

Once inside, the party proceeds to a large banquet hall where Lord Harkon greets them. Harkon thanks the Dragonborn for returning his daughter and offers his own blood as a reward, explaining that taking the blood will transform the recipient into a vampire. He also mentions that should the Dragonborn refuse the gift, he/she will be banished from the castle and be considered prey forever after.

Return to Isran[edit]

If the Dragonborn chooses to stay loyal to the Dawnguard, he/she must then return to Fort Dawnguard and report the findings at Dimhollow Crypt.
