Detailed WalkthroughEdit

After completing Kindred Judgment, Garan Marethi or Fura Bloodmouth in Volkihar Keep may offer this quest. You will be asked to kill the leaders of the Dawnguard to "avoid an all-out war". Upon nearing Fort Dawnguard in Dayspring Canyon, several Dawnguard members will turn hostile and attack you. Make your way into the fort. It is best to try and kill the leaders as stealthily as possible because in groups they can be difficult to defeat. Isran also uses a powerful spell called Stendarr's Aura that will drain your health if you come into melee range, but only if you are a vampire. Once you have defeated the leaders of the Dawnguard, return to Garan or Fura for your reward. He or she will congratulate you on killing the leaders of the Dawnguard, but comment that the Dawnguard will still remain active even with its leaders dead.



  • Both Garan and Fura refer to Fort Dawnguard being in the Reach, when it's actually in the Rift.
  • Isran's "essential" flag might not get removed, meaning he can't be killed.
    • Use the setstage console command to bypass this.
