Inside the Black Forge, I found Vanus Galerion. At least, I found a part of the Great Mage. I should talk to the essence of the mage.

Vanus divided himself into three fragments so that the Daedra couldn't use him to power the Great Shackle. To free the first fragment, Galerion's Health, I need to kill vampires and recover his stolen health.

I recovered the health the vampires stole from Galerion's essence of health. I should talk to the mage's essence and return the health energy
