Dear Mother,

We finally find Serana’s mother, Valerica, trapped in the ruins. At first Valerica views this one with suspicion, but Serana vouches for J’Zhirr. She says, “This ‘stranger’ has done more for me in the brief time I’ve known him than you’ve done in centuries!”

Of course this makes Valerica angry. She shouts, “How dare you! I gave up everything I cared about to protect you from that fanatic you call a father!”

Serana retorts, “So to protect me you decided to shut me away from everything I cared about? You never asked me if hiding me in that tomb was the best course of action, you just expected me to follow you blindly. Both of you are obsessed with your own paths. Your motivations might have been different, but in the end, I’m still just a pawn to you too. I want us to be a family again. But I don’t know if we can ever have that. Maybe we don’t deserve that kind of happiness. Maybe it isn’t for us. But we have to stop him. Before he goes too far. And to do that, we need the Elder Scroll.”

Serana’s speech opened her mother’s eyes and Valerica apologizes, “I’m sorry, Serana. I didn’t know… I didn’t see.”
