- Enter the keep and kill General Serien.
After they destroy the ward, make your way into the keep. Serien is inside along with two Covenant guards. The Indorils and Holgunn will join you for this fight. At around 50% health, General Serien's flesh beguns to bloat, and he transforms into a flesh atronach.
Serien dies, and a spirit appears where he was kneeling when you first enter the keep. The general refuses to fail. In a last ditch effort to get an edge over the Pact, he channels a spell that envelops Garyn Indoril. The man falls over, convulses and dies. Tanval is distraught by his son's death. Holgunn pleads with him, saying that the Coral Heart is too dangerous. Tanval hits Holgunn with a burst of magic and steals the Coral Heart from him. He and swears that he'll destroy the Daggerfall Covenant for killing his son. Tanval Indoril flees Fort Virak, and Holgunn tells you to meet him outside.
Holgunn is outside, and he bears a grim expression. He says Tanval is planning to use the Coral Heart to release Sadal.
