With Vox's wards shattered, the path to her lair is open. Aspera the Forgotten suggests this creates an opportunity to defeat Vox, but I'm not sure I can trust this strange projection.


Quick Walkthrough[edit]

  1. Watch three scenes from Vox's past.
  2. Talk to Aspera the Forgotten.

Detailed Walkthrough[edit]

In order to defeat Vox, you must learn more about her. Aspera tells you to use Anima Crystals to watch scenes from Vox's past.

Meram and Urili argue

The First Scene[edit]

The first scene is at the western Anima Archive. Aspera says Vox once willingly served the Tribunal. Her only son, Meram Vox, grew distant and more radical. He broke Vox's heart. Urili Vox and Meram Vox are fighting about the Daedric Princes and the Tribunal. Meram welcomes the Daedric Princes as true gods and leaves. Urili Vox collapses to her knees, fearing her son will be hurt.

The Second Scene[edit]

The next scene is at the eastern Anima Archive. Aspera tells you Meram tried to steal Veloth's Judgment for Boethiah and killed many of the Tribunal faithful. However, Meram was caught and punished. Magistrix Vox witnessed her son's punishment and was powerless to intervene. Almalexia questions Meram, but he renounces her as a false god. In response to this, Almalexia kills Meram, while Vox begs her for mercy.

Boethiah speaks to Urili Vox

The Final Scene[edit]

The final memory is in the central Anima Archive. Vox vowed revenge on the Three. Boethiah spoke to her, and Vox turned from a trusted servant of the Tribunal and betrayed them. She spread the plague and stole the hammer her son sought so the Daedra could return. However, Vox's power is growing, and she sees you in her memory.

Aspera says you are finally ready to face Vox.
