Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The quest "Lost Relic" is the counterpart to this quest when allied with the Dawnguard.
  • The quest can be given randomly, so it may take doing several other radiant quests for Feran, Fura Bloodmouth, and Garan Marethi before it will be given again until all the Ancient Vampire parts have been recovered.
