Many years ago, [[Malyn Varen]] was exiled from the [[College of Winterhold (Skyrim)|College of Winterhold]] for pursuing questionable research with [[Soul Gem (Skyrim)|soul gems]]. Malyn was trying to find a way to prolong his spirit, and he believed that storing his soul inside the [[Daedric Artifacts (Skyrim)|Daedric artifact]], [[Azura's Star (Skyrim)|Azura's Star]], would prevent him from dying. Unfortunately for him, one of the properties of the Star was that black souls—the souls of sapient, mortal beings—could not enter it. As such, he began experiments to modify the Star's properties so that it would accept black souls.

The further Malyn progressed toward this goal, the more [[Azura]] tormented him. The artifact slowly drove Malyn insane, causing him to hear voices and see people that were not there, and eventually murder one of his students. After this, he was exiled from the college, collected a band of followers, and continued his research at [[Ilinalta's Deep]], an abandoned [[Imperial Legion (Skyrim)|Imperial]] outpost that had mostly collapsed into the [[Lake Ilinalta|adjacent lake]]. There, he continued his work, eventually succeeding in capturing his own soul inside the modified Azura's Star and achieving a state of immortality.

To receive this quest, the [[Last Dragonborn|Dragonborn]] must first talk with [[Aranea Ienith]] at the [[Shrine of Azura (Skyrim)|Shrine of Azura]], south of [[Winterhold (Skyrim City)|Winterhold]]. She will say that Azura has chosen the Dragonborn as her champion, and that they must find "an elven mage who can turn the brightest star to the darkest night."

After entering, the Dragonborn should go past the shackled skeleton and enter a flooded room with a partially open doorway on the left. They must go through the doorway and down the subsequent hallway. Following the hallway is a small room containing a [[Skeleton (Skyrim)|skeleton]] and the first of many [[Conjurer (Skyrim)|conjurers]] ([[Necromancer (Skyrim)|necromancers]] at higher levels) found throughout the dungeon. In the next room are two more conjurers, and a skeleton lurks in the room on the left, which contains some [[Food (Skyrim)|food]] and a [[Potions (Skyrim)|potion]] of [[Waterbreathing (Skyrim)|waterbreathing]].

The door on the right leads to the next area, with a conjurer, a skeleton, and a dead [[Wolf (Skyrim)|wolf]], which will be raised from the dead if the mage is alerted. The underwater passage behind the waterfall on the left leads to a hidden room with a [[Containers (Skyrim)|chest]] and the [[Alteration (Skyrim)|Alteration]] [[Skill Book (Skyrim)|skill book]], ''[[Breathing Water]]'', floating near the ceiling.

Speaking to the desired person, with the Broken Azura's Star in hand, will begin this final step. Whichever option is chosen, the Dragonborn must enter the Star to cleanse it of Malyn Varen's soul. The former is warped out of the Star several seconds after defeating the latter's soul inside, regardless of the status of Malyn's three [[Dremora (Skyrim)|Dremora]] henchmen.

Once Malyn's soul has been defeated, the Dragonborn is pulled out of the Star, thanked, and given either a working Azura's Star by Aranea Ienith, or the Black Star by Nelacar. The former can trap only white souls (those of non-sapient creatures) while the latter, according to Nelacar, can trap only black souls (the souls of sapient beings). In reality, however, the Black Star can hold either white or black souls, just like a [[Black Soul Gem (Skyrim)|black soul gem]].

Additionally, bringing the Star to Aranea makes her available as a [[Follower (Skyrim)|follower]]. While giving the Star to Nelacar does not provide a companion option, the Black Star has the advantage of a much more abundant source of grand souls, as all black souls are of the grand level. Meanwhile, only white souls from exceptionally powerful monsters such as the [[Mammoth (Skyrim)|mammoth]], are grand souls. Giving the Star to Nelacar also opens up another merchant, as he will afterwards sell [[Mage Robes]], [[Spell Tome (Skyrim)|spell tomes]], [[Soul Gem (Skyrim)|soul gems]], and the occasional [[Staves (Skyrim)|staff]].
