|Main Quest Name||Description|
|An Interesting Prospect||Auryen will have you prove your worth by collecting 5 random artifacts. Once these are turned in, he will invite you to join the museum as the relic hunter.
Note! This is not available with the Live Another Life Relic Hunter start, as you are already the museum's relic hunter.
|Night at the Museum / The Haunted Museum||
The quest starts when you have completed the introductory museum quest 'An Interesting Prospect' to become the museum's relic hunter (not needed with the Live Another Life Relic Hunter start, as you are already the museum's relic hunter) and have reached a display count of 300. When returning to the museum after fulfilling these prerequisites, Brother Ikard will speak to you before you can enter.
|Shadows of One's Past / Museum Heist||The quest starts when you have completed 'Night at the Museum' and have reached a display count of 400.|
Once he sees you in the world space, he'll run up to you and hand over a shard and then die. Three Morag Tong assassins are chasing after him and attack you. This will activate the quest in the quest log. In order to speed up the process simply travel to any area outside of Whiterun and wait for Byron. The sword itself does not have to be carried and can be left on display in the museum.
