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]].

*Aranea Lenith speaks of ''"a fort threatened by water, but not yet touched by it."'' She thinks this description applies to the College of Winterhold, but it also partly applies to Ilinalta's Deep, since it is also a fort threatened by water. However, Illinalta's Deep has obviously been damaged and, thus, touched by water indicating that Aranea spoke of the College of Winterhold.
