Enter the Thalmor Headquarters, the building that houses the Mages Guild and the Fighters Guild, in Woodhearth, and talk to Treethane Fariel.
- “From what you’ve discovered, it’s unquestionable at this point — the Veiled Heritance is planning something here, something even worse than killing the queen. I just hope it’s not too late for us to stop them.”
She thinks questioning Asteril will be key to figuring out their plans. She might be in the Thalmor Residence, or you might find some of Pelidil’s plans there. You take Oromin along with you. He doesn’t believe Asteril is a traitor. The Thalmor requires its agents to prove their loyalty.
The Thalmor Residence is southeast of the Thalmor Headquarters. The entrance is on the opposite side. In front of the fire, you find Asteril’s long dead corpse on the floor.
Talk to Oromin. He is overjoyed at finding her body since it proves she could not have possibly been the person you saw in the Imperial Tunnels. When you ask him about his apparent lack of grief or shock, he replies that her death is troubling to him, but the Thalmor’s reputation is more important. He suspects the same person who tried assassinate the queen killed Asteril. He directs you to Razum-dar, who has found a secret passage behind the bookshelf. Enter the trapdoor to the imperial Underground.
The Imperial Underground
Read the Letter to Laryaril on the desk to the left. Make your way past the Heritance soldiers to the ladder to the Imperial Prison.
Defeat the Veilmistress to the right to access the room where Laryaril sits, mortally wounded. Pelidil lured her to the prison to be assassinated. His armies are storming Seaside Sanctuary. From there, they will take all of Valenwood. He made a treaty with the Maormer and will use the Staff of Magnus to raise an army of undead. She doesn’t regret killing and impersonating her twin; she always felt like a failure while her sister had a successful career with the Thalmor.
Make your way back to Woodhearth, and talk to Treethane Fariel in the Thalmor Headquarters. She gives a reward.
