Related Quests[edit]


Daughter of Giants[edit]

You first see Sai in a projection while rescuing Lyris:

Lyris Titanborn: "Sai! What's happened to you? What have they done?"
Sai Sahan: "Lyris! Lyris, I can see you! Are you really there?"
Lyris Titanborn: "Sai, it's me! We're seeing some kind of vision of you. Do you know where you are?"
Sai Sahan: "I... I don't know. They're torturing me. They... want the Amulet of Kings. Want me to tell them where it's hidden. But I haven't broken. Not yet."
Lyris Titanborn: "We'll find you! Somehow, we'll get you out of there! Sai? Sai! No! Bring him back, you bastards!"

The Tharn Speaks[edit]

Projection of Sai at Knife Ear Grotto:

Sai Sahan: "You will not break me, King of Worms!"
Manimarco: "I can, and I shall! Where is the Amulet of Kings?"
Sai Sahan: "You cannot break the will of a son of Yokuda! I spit on you!"

Halls of Torment[edit]

Sai Sahan: "Have I been here two years, or two thousand years? I can no longer tell. But I will never break! Never!"

Meeting Sai in person for the first time:

"I do not know you. Why are you here? Who sent you?"
Varen sent me. I'm a friend.
"The Emperor? He lives? This day is filled with wonders."
Did they force you to reveal the location of the Amulet of Kings?
"They tortured me for many months―years, perhaps―but I did not break my vow. The amulet is hidden, and safe."
Can you walk? We need to get out of here.
"My strength is returning. Lead on."

After his rescue:

"I owe you my life. My Lord calls you Vestige? A strange name. Is it true your soul was taken from you?"
Yes, it's true.
"Stranger still. My people say that bravery and honor are the hallmarks of a great soul, yet you have both of those things in great measure.
I had begun to think that honor was a relic of the past. You give me hope."
How are you feeling?
"I hid the Amulet in a sacred catacomb, protected by magical wards. The means of lifting these wards are in the keeping of my old mentor, Kasura.
As soon as I am able, we must meet with her."
We will, as soon as you're well. You should rest now.
"I will try to rest, but I am a warrior. We cannot sit still for very long.
And I should certainly bathe before we meet with Kasura. I am unpleasantly fragrant, and if she happened to be downwind of me, I would never hear the end of it."
As you say, Sai.
"The path ahead of us is a dark one, but it pleases me to know that I shall walk that path with friends. May we all rest a little easier tonight. I know I shall."

Valley of Blades[edit]

In the Harborage:

"Honor and faith to you, my friend. We are nearly ready to depart. My Lord Varen requested that Tharn and Snow Lily join us, for safety's sake, though I have seen fewer places as tranquil as the Valley of Blades."
Why do we need to go to the Valley of Blades?
"An old friend, Kasura, dwells there. Before I was captured I placed an enchanted ring in her keeping. The ring is a key of sorts. Without it, we will not be able to open the secret chamber where the Amulet of Kings lies hidden."
I'm ready to travel to the Valley of the Blades. (ends the conversation)
Tell me about Kasura.
"She was my first mentor and instructor, a true master of blades. She still trains young swordsmen in the valley. Those she deems worthy of her instruction."
What does she teach?
"Swordsmanship, but much more than that. Her teachings revolve around a trinity of body, blade, and brilliance. The sword-singers of old were said to be masters of all three. Look, there will be time for questions later. Are you ready to depart?"
Yes, I'm ready.

At the Valley, you can speak to Sai.

"Do you smell the scent of burning embers in the air? We may be in for a treat if Kasura is teaching the firewalk!"
Do all Redguard swordsmen shave their heads?
"It is tradition for Redguard men to shave their heads following a time of great trials. I shaved mine long ago, when I failed in the task to restore the lost tradition of the sword-singers.
Also, long hair gets in the way during battle."
But you didn't shave your beard.
"There is an old Redguard proverb. A man is only as great as the beard that wears him.
A full and healthy beard carries with it a sense of great honor and wisdom. Also crumbs."
Couldn't it be grabbed in battle?
"Oh, a few have tried, but a fool and his fingers are quickly parted."
Which way are we heading?
"The abbey is just down the path. We're fortunate that my Lord Varen opened a portal for us. This landslide appears to have blocked the valley's only approach."
What could have caused it?
"I cannot say. I've never known these mountains to experience earthquakes. Strange."
Let's go
Sai Sahan: "It is strange to return to these mountains. Memories of youth flood my mind, each one bringing its own sorrow, or its own smile."
Abnur Tharn: "Oh, joy. We've been here less than five minutes and Sahan is already getting maudlin and weepy."
Lyris Titanborn: "Shut up, Tharn! Don't let him get to you, Sai. Let him roll his yes. Maybe he'll find a brain back there."
Sai Sahan: "Kasura often said that rudeness is a weak man's imitation of strength. She is wise beyond her years. You will like her, Snow Lily."
Sai Sahan: "What is this? The abbey burns!"

Find Kasura.

Sai Sahan: "Kasura! There!"
Kasura: "Sai Sahan! Intruders... cultists... they attacked the abbey. So many of my students have fallen...."
Sai Sahan: "The abbey is in ruins, Kasura! How could they...?"
Kasura: "A gigantic beast... like nothing I've ever seen! The cultists... they're opening rifts to Oblivion!"
Sai Sahan: "Save your strength, Kasura. We will make them pay, I promise you!"
Lyris Titanborn: "What do you think? Trap?"
Abnur Tharn: "It's only a trap if you don't know about it. I assume everything is a trap. Therefore, it's a challenge."

After defeating the Daedric Titan:

Kasura: "Follow me. The hidden entrance will not be obvious."
Lyris Titanborn: "Why would a crypt need a secret entrance?"
Abnur Tharn: "It's a wonder there's an unplundered crypt in all of Skyrim! You Nords could learn a thing or two from the builders of Hammerfell."
Sai Sahan: "Perhaps Hammerfell could also teach Nibenay the virtue of good manners."
Kasura: "Here we are. Watch your step as you descend."

Within the crypt:

Sai Sahan: "Tread lightly. Few living have been permitted to walk among these honored dead."

Speaking with Sai here:

"I can feel the presence of my ancestors whenever I come here. I am burdened with a great responsibility to honor their sacrifice and uphold their legacy."
Your ancestors are interred here?
"Aye. Along with some of the most renowned sword-singers who ever lived. We must tread carefully and with great respect."
Why did Kasura hide the ring here?
"We both thought it would be well protected in the Valley of Blades. The most gifted young swordmasters of Hammerfell are invited to train with Kasura. The town was bristling with strength and steel before the Titan showed up."
How did Mannimarco find out about this valley?
"I cannot say. Perhaps someone told him of my past. Perhaps he pried the memory from me during my time in the Halls of Torment. Either way, I am to blame for the valley's destruction. No one I love will be safe until Mannimarco has been dealt with."
We'll stop Mannimarco.
"Then I shall need a proper weapon. Kasura said that my father's greatsword lies with the ring. It seems proper that I should wield it in his honor."
Let's go.

He begins introducing the heroes who are interred here.

Sai Sahan: "Divad Hunding, son of Frandar do Hunding Hel Ansei No Shira, the greatest of the Sword Saints. The hearth of every household in Hammerfell has small alcove containing a copy of his father's greatest work, The Book of Circles."
Sai Sahan: "Ra Abah was a warrior of great renown. He fought alongside Frandar Hunding in the seven great battles against the Armies of Hira, and survived. At the final battle at Hattu Mountain, more than three hundred thousand gave their lives."
Sai Sahan: "The twins of sword and spear, Ra Hasa and Ra Huzar, and their mother, Ansei Satameh the Tigress of Dragonstar."
Sai Sahan: "It seems fitting that the Ring of Stendarr's Mercy lies with my father's greatsword. We will need both for the battles that lay before us."

Sai takes his father's greatsword.

Sai Sahan: "By the sword of my father, Nazir Itaf Sahan, I pledge myself to the destruction of Mannimarco and the liberation of Tamriel from the tyranny of the God of Schemes, Molag Bal!"

Mannimarco appears:

Mannimarco: "I knew you would lead me to the ring, eventually. Give it to me!"
Sai Sahan: "Your presence defiles this place, Mannimarco!"
Mannimarco: "Give me the ring and I might spare your pathetic lives!"
Lyris Titanborn: "We struck down your Titan and we'll strike you down soon enough!"
Mannimarco: "The Titan was a prelude of what's to come if you continue to defy me!"
Abnur Tharn: "Defy you? Your delusions of godhood are laughable, your ignominious corpse-herder!"
Mannimarco: "Very well, then. I'll simply take the ring from your corpses."
Sai Sahan: "Blasphemy! How dare you raise the honored dead to fight your battle!"

After defeating Ansei Kalam an Ra Adia:

Sai Sahan: "Hold the line! They must not get the ring!"

After defeating the last of the honored dead:

Sai Sahan: "Rest in peace, honored dead."

After defeating the undead Sword Saints:

Sai Sahan: "The Abbey of Blades will rise from the ashes. If I survive the dark path we must walk, I will return to help Kasura shape a new generation of blademasters."

Speaking with Sai after defeating the undead:

"The ring is ours for the time being. Guard it well."
I'll guard it with my life.
"You must return to the Harborage and give it to Lord Varen. It will remain safe in his keeping until it is time to travel to Sancre Tor. Lyris, Abnur and I will remain here, to help Kasura bury the dead, and tend to the injured."
How will I return?
"Lord Varen has been observing our progress. He will open a portal for you to return. There it is, at the top of the stairs. Go, quickly!"
I'll tell him what happened.

Shadow of Sancre Tor[edit]

In the Harborage:

"The time has come for us to enter the catacombs of Sancre Tor. Do not underestimate the dangers that await us. In ages past, Sancre Tor was a place of light, but I fear that is no longer the case. We must be prepared for anything."
Have you fully recovered from your wounds?
"I have been through much, but this body is tougher than the great oaks of Valenwood. I go with neither hope, nor fear. It is useless to guess at a future that has yet to be written. You may hope if you wish, my friend. I will not judge."
What's our plan?
"My Lord Varen will open a gateway to Sancre Tor. The amulet lies in a vault protected by powerful magic: a ward of Stendarr, the God of Justice and Mercy. Also, a God of Well-Earned Luck. I thought this could not hurt."
How do we break the ward?
"The catacombs contain two shrines dedicated to the Divines. We must consecrate them in Stendarr's name. When that is done, the Ring of Stendarr's Mercy should open the vault doors."
Tell me more about Sancre Tor.
"It is written that Alessia received the divine inspiration for her slave rebellion at Sancre Tor, and so, built her holy city there. But that was long ago. The city is a ruin, now. It has become a dark place, with areas best left undisturbed."
What sort of areas?
"We should avoid the Crypt of Heroes. I saw enough angry dead there to fill nine lifetimes. Kasura and I barely escaped with our lives. We will enter through the inner courtyard and avoid it entirely.
Now, come. Time waits for no man."
Let's go!

A dubious choice of hiding places:

Lyris Titanborn: "You could have hidden that amulet anywhere in Tamriel, and this was your first choice?"
Sai Sahan: "It seemed like a good idea at the time."
Abnur Tharn: "Brilliant. Why is it that the people with the most ridiculous ideas are always the ones who are most certain of them?"
Sai Sahan and Lyris Titanborn, simultaneously: "Shut up, Tharn."

Mannimarco appears:

Mannimarco: "What brings you to Sancre Tor, old friends? Looking for an amulet, perhaps?"
Sai Sahan: "Mannimarco? How did you find this place?"
Mannimarco: "Do you really think I'd allow you to escape the Halls of Torment if I couldn't track your every movement?"
Lyris Titanborn: "Sai, no! Mannimarco, stop! You're killing him!"
Mannimarco: "Where is the Amulet of Kings? My master, Molag Bal, demands it!"
Abnur Tharn: "Your master. Please! You would use the amulet to betray Molag Bal!"
Mannimarco: "Fool! When I ascended, you could have been at my right hand, Tharn. Instead you chose to allign yourself with mongrels and imbeciles. Now you'll die with them!"
Abnur Tharn: "You won't get away with this. Do you really think you can betray a Daedric Prince?"
Mannimarco: "With the Amulet of Kings, all things are possible! Nations will tremble and bow before me! I will be a god!"
Sai Sahan: "The Amulet of Kings will never be yours! It is protected by a ward of the Divines!"
Mannimarco: "You mean your ward of Stendarr, God of Merciful Forbearance, patron of gutless, law-abiding dimwits? It won't even slow me down!"

After listening to Mannimarco's projection:

"Mannimarco has been watching our every move. We led him right to the amulet!"
We must reach the Amulet of Kings first.
"Mannimarco may be powerful enough to break through Stendarr's ward eventually. If we can get to the shrines quickly and receive Stendarr's blessing, we can pass through the ward, but leave it in place. He may not be able to follow for some time."
How do we get to the shrines?
"We must make our way to the Inner Courtyard. From there we can access the chambers where the shrines are located."
Let's go.
Lyris Titanborn: "Sai, are you well enough to continue?"
Sai Sahan: "Have no fear, Snow Lily. I am Redguard. We are like mountain bamboo: far stronger and more flexible than we might appear."
Abnur Tharn: "I find it hilarious that Mannimarco chose such a massive projected appearance. He's obviously overcompensating for something."

Speaking with him at the Crypt of Heroes:

Sai Sahan: "Through that gate lies the Crypt of Heroes. We can enter, if you wish. But it is a foul place, where the dead are restless and angry."

Sai needs a break:

Sai Sahan: "Please. A moment, my friends. I ... I must rest before we continue."
Lyris Titanborn: "Sai? Are you all right? That bastard really hurt you, didn't he? I swear to the gods I'll take his head off!"
Sai Sahan: "I'll be fine, Snow Lily. I just need a moment to catch my breath."
Lyris Titanborn: "Take all the time you need. I'll keep watch. If there's anything I can do, just name it."
Abnur Tharn: "An enchanting moment. I'll be over here, bringing up my lunch."

Speaking with Sai here:

"Zeht's tears, I thought I could handle this! Mannimarco's sorcery brought back all of the pain and doubt I felt inside the Halls of Torment."
Are you going to be all right?
"I have pushed my body much further than this. It is my mind that pains me. Mannimarco filled my head with shattered memories. They are like broken glass. With every beat of my heart, they stab into me."
Take a moment. Catch your breath.
"That voice ... Mannimarco's voice ... it tauned me over and over in an endless cycle, for years on end. He never broke my will, but he broke ... something."
Will you be able to make it through this, Sai?
"I will make it through this, my friend. I did not endure years of torture in the Halls of Torment, only to give up now! My pain has subsided. Let us make haste, and finish this."
Where do we go from here?
"We must consecrate the two shrines with Stendarr's blessing before the vault can be opened. The first shrine rests in the Dragonguard Tomb, where so many of my fallen comrades were interred. We must take care to respect their resting place."
Let's go.

Mannimarco raises the Dragonguard:

Sai Sahan: "The shrine is on the far side of the room. Quickly, we must find our way across!"
Mannimarco: "I've a surprise for you, Sai. Do you remember your fall comrades from the Dragonguard? I've taken the liberty of raising them, and they're quite anxious to see you."

Prayer at the shrine within the Dragonguard Tomb:

Sai Sahan: "Stendarr―God of Mercy, Charity, and Justice―empower us with your wisdom and vision. Help us to right the wrongs of this world through your grace and with your guidance. Encourage us as we smite the wicked and punish the unjust! Now, we have only to consecrate the second shrine before we can enter the vault."

Upon entering the Reman Tomb:

Sai Sahan: "The second shrine is in the chamber beyond. There is a trick to reaching it, a puzzle of sorts, but I do not recall its solution. The altar is on the far side, but to reach it, the drawbridge must be lowered."

Praying at the Reman Tomb shrine:

Sai Sahan: "Stendarr, God of Mercy, Charity and Justice, by your grace and through these consecrations, we beseech you to lower your wards and grant us safe passage into the Vault of Kings."
Sai Sahan: "I do not like Mannimarco as a mortal. I think I will like him even less as a god."

An enchanting conversation:

Abnur Tharn: "Dank corridors, crumbling walls, nauseating smells. This place has all the charm of a Riften brothel. It must feel very much like home to you, Titanborn."
Lyris Titanborn: "You mean a crypt filled with the rotting corpses of inbred kings and failed statesmen. Must be what it's like at a Tharn family reunion."
Sai Sahan: "It is more pleasant in the summer months."

Speaking at the approach to the Vault of Kings:

"There it is. The door to the Vault of Kings."
What do I need to do?
"The shrines have been consecrated in Stendarr's name. Now, you must use the Ring of Stendarr's Mercy to open the vault doors!"
"Stand in the casting circle and direct the ring at the doors to life the ward. The doors should open wide!"
I'm ready.

Having opened the Vault door:

Sai Sahan: "Look! The Amulet! I can see it from here!"


Council of the Five Companions[edit]

"The greatest of the Sword-Saints, Divad, tells us that destiny is a chain, forged one link at a time. Our chain is nearly complete. There is but one link remaining."
What is this link?
"It is you, my friend. You are the link.
I will not bore you with effusive praise, but state it plainly. You are a great warrior and a trusted friend and we would like to extend you an offer."
What offer?
"When Emperor Varen first brought the Five Companions together, he did so in the hope of creating a Tamriel where all men could live freely and safely beneath one banner."
Go on.
"The Five Companions failed, betrayed from within by one of our own: The Worm King Mannimarco. All that came after was the result of one man's treachery.
Now four of the five are reunited to right that great wrong. But destiny requires a fifth."
What are you suggesting?
"We want you to join us as our fifth member. You are the champion we should have had with us back then.
Don't look so grave. This is largely symbolic. But please... humor an old soldier."
I am honored to join you as the last member of the Five Companions.
The Five Companions failed. Let's not risk repeating history.

Sai Sahan: "My lord, with your permission."
Varen Aquilarios: "You needn't call me that anymore, Sai Sahan. We are equals now."
Sai Sahan: "All those years ago, when we fought beneath our lord's banner to free the Empure from the Longhouse Emperors, we did so with a dream of freedom and peace in mind- not just for the Empire, but for all of Tamriel."
Sai Sahan: "Together we forged a fellowship stronger than any blade, only to see it shattered upon the rocks of deceit by one of our own."
Sai Sahan: "The fellowship is no more, yet we four have assembled here, united by a single purpose. It is not vengeance that drives us, but truth and loyalty and justice."
Sai Sahan: "I, Sai Sahan, steward of the Abbey of Blades, call for the Five Companions to be reforged this day."
Sai Sahan: "By the light of Stendarr, and the heart of Lorkhan, may our blade of fellowship be forged anew. And may the Vestige, our mutual friend and ally, become its tip, that we may thrust it straight into the heart of a Daedric Prince."
Lyris Titanborn: "Sai Sahan is right. You are the member that we should have had all those years ago."
Varen Aquilarios: "It is as the Scrolls foretold. The soulless one will become the brightest of five stars, and they shall guide us to the coming dawn."
Abnur Tharn: "Oh, please. You melodramatic sots! Fine, fine. If seeing one of your foolish prophecies com true will help to ensure the safety of the Empire, I'll play along."
Sai Sahan: "We stand united once more- the Five Companions are reforged, and together we will strike down the God of Schemes!"

After the conversation with Tharn:

Abnur Tharn: "Of course it is. The fact of the matter stands, however. One of the Five will need to give their life to fuel this attack, when the time comes."
Lyris Titanborn: "So you said before the Vestige arrived. And I've already thought it over. I'll do it."
Sai Sahan: "Snow Lily, no! You should not need to give your life this way. This is my duty- penance for my numerous failures. This is my chance to make things right."
Varen Aquilarios: "The Scrolls said nothing of this moment, and so I am not bound to their dictates. Vestige, I ask that you let me do this one thing. All that has happened was because of my hubris. I shall be the one."
Lyris Titanborn: "Sire, you've done enough. This was Mannimarco's doing, not yours."
Lyris Titanborn: "I don't see you leaping to volunteer, Tharn. Saving your own backside again?"
Abnur Tharn: "Had as it may be, Lyris, don't be an idiot. I am the only one who knows the ritual and we don't have time to teach anyone else."
Varen Aquilarios: "That's enough. It won't be decided here and now. Vestige, come here. I have some final words for you."

God of Schemes[edit]

When you speak to him inside the Harborage:

"When Lord Varen revealed his true identity, you felt betrayed, and rightly so. In The Book of Circles it is written that when you forgive, you set a prisoner free, and quickly discover that the prisoner was you. Consider that, Vestige."
Sai Sahan fighting with Lyris at Heart's Grief

When spoken to without need at Heart's Grief:

"Courage, my friend. That is the most important of all virtues. Courage is not a lack of fear, rather, it is the realization that there are things more important than fear."

Inside the Vestibule, if you have spoken to the Duchess of Anguish:

Duchess of Anguish: "You! You did this to me! Sai Sahan, my love... let me out, would you? I promise you an eternity of delights..."
Sai Sahan: "Vile seductress! You have earned your place here!"

Arriving at the Seat of Tyranny:

Varen Aquilarios: "Molag Bal is here. I can feel his presence. Sense his foul breath upon the wind."
Varen Aquilarios: "There. That place should serve us well. Let us assemble and prepare the ritual."
Lyris Titanborn: "What do you suppose this place was?"
Sai Sahan: "A temple of some kind. The Dark Anchors may have pulled it into Coldharbour. Or, perhaps it was created by the Daedra to mock the Divines."
Abnur Tharn: "What does it matter? We can't wait any longer. We must perform the ritual. Vestige, it is time for you to make your decision."

You can then speak to Sai, and have the option to choose him as the sacrifice:

"I see that look in your eye, Vestige, and I wonder―am I to be the one? Know that I would consider it a great honor. It would be a fine death."
You sound very confident.
"When you live each day as if it were your last, as I have, eventually you will be right.
I was born to die a hero's death. I have always known this, and I have always been prepared for it."
Do you really want me to choose you?
"I once swore to protect my Emperor and failed. I cannot allow him to sacrifice his life in my place. Nor can I ask this of Lyris, my Snow Lily. She is more important to me than she will ever know.
Please. Give me this honor."
Very well. I choose you, Sai Sahan. (Sai Sahan is sacrificed in the ritual)
I need more time to decide. (You exit dialogue and can speak to him again, or to others)

Once you have made your decision on how to sacrifice, Abnur Tharn will bring out the Amulet of Kings and say:

Abnur Tharn: "Position yourself over there, Vestige. And brace yourself."
Sai being sacrificed for the ritual

If you have chosen to sacrifice Sai Sahan:

Lyris Titanborn: "Sai, I... I'll never forget you. And we'll finish this, I swear it."
Sai Sahan: "I am honored to make this sacrifice. When you think of me, I hope you remember me fondly, and sing songs of this day while you toast to my memory."

If you have chosen to sacrifice Lyris Titanborn:

Sai Sahan: "Snow Lily, no... don't do this. Please."
Lyris Titanborn: "Death is simply life's next great adventure, and I am prepared to make the journey. I hope to see you all again one day, in Sovngarde. Until then, it has been my greatest honor."

If you did not choose to sacrifice Sai and speak to him, he will say:

"No time for words now! Get moving!"

Back at the Harborage, events will turn out differently depending on the sacrifice that was made:

If Varen was sacrificed:

Lyris Titanborn: "What... what happened? How did we get here? I remember being overwhelmed, but then..."
Cadwell: "Right. Sorry about that. I called in a bit of help to pull you out of there. I do hope I didn't overstep my bounds."
Sai Sahan: "Snow Lily, I..."
Lyris Titanborn: "I know, Sai. It's over. It's all over."
Cadwell: "Well then! Happy endings all around! Smashing! Who's got the brandy?"
Sai Sahan: "Wait, where is Tharn? Did he survive?"
Cadwell: "He vanished. Ran off, I think. And he took the amulet you chaps found, with him."

You can then talk to him.

"So, this is where our roads diverge."
You and Lyris are going back to the Abbey?
"For a time. There is much to rebuild there, and I owe it to Kasura to bring her the news of our victory personally.
Snow Lily and I, well … maybe we shall finally have some time to ourselves."
Aren't you going to chase after Tharn?
"To what end? No, let him return to his Imperial City. He played his role, and that is enough. Grudges are like poison to the spirit.
But perhaps, once the Abbey of Blades has been rebuilt..."
"I have never been content to remain in one place for too long. It is not my nature. Eventually I am overcome by the need to endanger myself. Between comfort and adventure, I always choose adventure."
Then perhaps we'll meet on the road, some day.
"I would like that. It has been a singular honor, Vestige. Although I suppose that name is no longer appropriate, is it?
Varen would be proud of you. I know we are."
Farewell, Sai Sahan.

If Lyris was sacrificed:

Sai Sahan: "How have we returned? The last hing I remember was being overwhelmed!"
Cadwell: "Right. Sorry about that. I called in a bit of help to pull you out of there. I do hope I didn't overstep my bounds."
Varen Aquilarios: "He is gone! Molag Bal no longer touches my mind! I am finally free of him!"
Sai Sahan: "My Lord Varen, are you injured?"
Varen Aquilarios: "I'm fine, Sai. But where is Tharn? I do not hear his steps nor his breath."
Cadwell: "He vanished. Ran off, I think. And he took the amulet you chaps found, with him."
Sai Sahan: "I cannot believe Snow Lily is gone. Why did she do it, My Lord?"
Cadwell: "Here now, my good man! Lyris Titanborn is a good hero! She gave her life for a noble cause!"
Varen Aquilarios: "Sir Cadwell is right, Sai. We will all mourn her, but it was her choice. her sacrifice to make."

You can then talk to him, though he will you blame you for Lyris' death.

"Honor and faith to you always, my friend. My part in this is over."
What will you do now?
"Snow Lily is gone, and I will mourn her passing, but my duties are not yet finished.
My Lord Varen and I will travel to the Abbey of Blades to help rebuild. Then I will devote myself to the creation of a new generation of blademasters."
Will we meet again?
"Who can say? I do know that I need time to heal. I cannot help but blame you for Snow Lily's death. Perhaps that is unfair—it was her decision as much as yours—but it is the truth."
I'm sorry. Things will be all right, in time.

If Sai Sahan was sacrificed:

Varen Aquilarios: "The scents of the Harborage fill the air. But what happened? How did we return? Lyris? Lyris, are you there?"
Cadwell: "Not to worry, not to worry! Lyris is fit as a fiddle, and you all seem quite intact, as well."
Lyris Titanborn: "I'm here, sire. But where's Tharn?"
Cadwell: "He vanished. Ran off, I think. And he took the amulet you chaps found, with him."
Lyris Titanborn: "That bastard! Sai died for that Amulet!"
(?) "The Amulet's power is expended for generations to come. It will be of no use to him, now."
Varen Aquilarios: "Things feel different. Molag Bal's hold on my mind has been lifted. I am finally free of him!"

Afterwards, when you talk with Cadwell, he will deliver a eulogy and you will catch a glimpse of Sai's spirit.
