|Quest Giver||Vicente Valtieri|
|Prerequisite||My Brother's Keeper|
After several successful quests proving the Hero of Kvatch's loyalty to the Dark Brotherhood, Vicente Valtieri will offer them the "gift" of immortality, in the form of Vampirism.
Note that if the Hero has forfeited the bonuses of several Dark Brotherhood contracts, Valtieri will not offer the quest.
Simply talk to Valtieri and ask to become a vampire. He will instruct the Hero to sleep anywhere in the Dark Brotherhood Sanctuary. When they do, they will awake with Porphyric Hemophilia, the the disease that eventually causes vampirism.
Refusing the offer will not fail the quest. It will remain in the journal, permanently available as long as Valtieri is there to offer it.
Note that continuing the Dark Brotherhood quest line will eventually lead to a quest called The Purification, which requires the Hero to kill all Dark Brotherhood members in the Sanctuary, including Valtieri. Of course, there are other methods of contracting Porphyric Hemophilia, but Valtieri is unique in that he can infect the Hero even if they have previously cured themselves of vampirism.
- Before choosing to become a vampire, players, especially on PS3, should be aware that the cure quest is significantly bugged, and it may be difficult to return to mortal form after transformation. See quest page for details.
- If Vampire Cure is active when completing this quest, it will cause the game to glitch, stating that the Darkness Eternal has not been completed.
