Will you join the ancient order of the Dawnguard? Or will you become a Vampire Lord yourself?
The Elder Scrolls have foretold of an ancient prophecy, predicting the eternal obfuscation of the sun using a magic ritual with a mythic bow and a special blood sacrifice. A legion of vampires known as the Volkihar Clan, lead by Lord Harkon, seek to actuate the prophecy by performing the ritual; the Dawnguard, a faction of crossbow-wielding vampire hunters aim to counter them. The Dragonborn chooses whether to join the Dawnguard and prevent Nirn from being plunged in irrevocable night, or to assist the vampire coven with realizing their malevolent ambition.
