Alcaire Castle is a castle in northwestern Stormhaven.
It is ruled over by Duke Nathaniel and is where he and his wife, Duchess Lakana, make their home. Many Knights of the Flame also reside here as the protectors of the Duke and Duchess. The Dukes of Alcaire have been ruling over western Stormhaven since the late First Era.
Just outside of the walls, a few buildings can be found surrounded by the Redguard army camp. To the complete south, some Fighters Guild members can be found camping by the castle stables as well as a Mages Guild camp. On the south side within the walls is the inn with the castle itself sitting just north of it. The market is located directly to the east of the castle.
With the arrival of a large Redguard force, many residents of the castle and the surrounding area fear an attack by King Fahara’jad’s men and an end to the Daggerfall Covenant.

– Detailed Walkthrough –
Duchess Lakana is concerned that Dame Falhut may not be acting alone in her attempted assassinations. She refuses to run though, and asks that you talk to Sir Hughes to root out the assassin before she succeeds. At this point, the quest will start, but you can talk to Lakana for more information. The fact that it is a Breton attempting to take Lakana’s life makes the situation more volatile and could destroy the fragile alliance between Lakana’s father, King Fahara’jad, and her brother-in-law, High King Emeric. She wants the Knights of the Flame to handle the situation to avoid any more diplomatic errors.
Head downstairs to the room directly below Lakana’s, where Sir Hughes awaits your report. Tell him about the Dame, and he will be shocked before remembering that Falhut openly opposed the marriage. However, it might not work to send a Knight of the Flame to arrest her and bring her in, so again, you’ll have to volunteer. He’ll come with some men right on your heels, he says.
Dame Falhut’s house is on the west side of the keep, north of the Old Goat Inn. Head inside and be ready for a fight. Dame Falhut stands at the back of the room and will immediately attack once you get close. She fights with an axe and shield, and has a charging attack that will knock you down.
Once you have killed her, exit the house and find Sir Hughes at the bottom of the hill. He will ask you if she ran, and when you tell him the truth, will be saddened but figure it’s prove enough of her guilt. He will give you 88 Gold, and talking to him further will start the next quest, The Safety of the Kingdom.
