Valerica unlocks the chest and lets J’Zhirr takes the Elder Scroll.
J’Zhirr is surprised that Valerica is staying back in the Soul Cairn. She says, “I have no choice. As I told you before, I’m a Daughter of Coldharbour. If I return to Tamriel, that increases Harkon’s likelihood of bringing the Tyranny of the Sun to fruition.”
J’Zhirr promises to return for Valerica when all these is over. She says, “I appreciate your concern for me, but Serana is all that I care about. You must keep her safe at all costs. She’s the only thing of value I have left.”
