25 (Optional) Retrieve Nystrom's Journal
30 Follow the Pilgrim's Path
Within the Twilight Sepulcher, I happened upon the spirit of Gallus, the Nightingale murdered by Mercer Frey. He warned me that removing the key from its resting place has corrupted the other resident Nightingale Guardian Spirits, distorting their morality and making them incredibly hostile.

70 Choose Nightingale Role
200 I've returned the Skeleton Key to its proper resting place within the Twilight Sepulcher and encountered Nocturnal herself. As a reward for my actions, she allowed me to become a true Nightingale Agent and imbued me with the appropriate ability befitting my station.
