Detailed WalkthroughEdit

As you cross over the Weeping Scar, you'll notice two Khajiit having a confrontation. The male disappears, and you're left to speak with the female, who is standing over a weakened Khajiit named Shiluk. Speak to the woman. She introduces herself as Yushiha, and explains that she's a member of the Tenarr Zalviit, a vampire clan. The clan has gone downhill since the old clanmother died. The clanmother had the clan live in harmony with mortals, only feeding on offerings of willing blood from nearby Orcrest. After the flu destroyed Orcrest, the clan resorted to feeding off of animals. The clan's new leader, Rakasza, disagrees with the late clan mother's way of life, and is encouraging the Tenarr Zalviit to kidnap travelers to feed off of. They've recently kidnapped an entire caravan, and Shiluk is the only on Yushiha managed to save. She asks you to check up on the caravanr's camps, which were set up around the canyon.

Save the caravaners

Enter the Ossuary and head north, then east. A set of kennels is located in the northern chamber, and a Khajiit named Zayrah is locked inside. She begs you to free her, as the vampires have been taking people out and dragging them further into the ossuary to feed on them. She saw one of the vampires put the key in a chest across the nearby bridge. Cross the bridge, take the Kennel Key from the chest, then head back to Zayrah and free her. Yushiha appears and tells you to find the other caravaners before leading Zayrah to safety.

Head south, deeper into the ossuary. A caravaner named Ra'kardru is being harassed by the Tenarr Zalviit. Kill them, and more vampires attack you. A third wave of vampires will attack you once the second is eradicated. With all three waves of vampires defeated, Yushiha appears to lead Ra'kardru out of the ossuary.

Head southwest, up the tunnel to the second floor. The last two caravaners, Kuhari and S'zaram, are trapped in a cage together. Free them, and Yushiha once again enters the scene to lead the innocents out of the ossuary. With all of the remaining caravaners set free, you now need to find Rakasza. Push forward until you reach a large chamber. There, Rakasza is standing on a ledge, speaking to Yushiha. He warns her that he's prepared to fight before retreating to his den.

Speak with Yushiha. She asks you to deal with him, and says that you may have to kill him. Proceed west and enter Rakasza's Den and kill him, then meet Yushiha outside. After you exit the ossuary, you'll end up above the Weeping Scar. Yushiha and the surviving caravaners are right in front of you. Jump down and climb the hill, then speak to Yushiha for your reward.
