Yulia, the High Priestess of the Immortal Empire met you at the waystation and assured you that your goals aligned with her own: the defeat of the Emperor.
When you arrived at the Citadel, It appeared that Yulia had betrayed you! She stood on the Emperor’s side and had turned on Alric. It was a ruse, however, intended to catch the Immortal Emperor off guard. When the Emperor attacked, she called upon you to use something you've never heard of, the Lance of Heorot, to strike him down. Once she saw your confusion, Yulia froze the Emperor with her magic and pleaded for you to escape. The Epoch ripped open a rift that you used to get to safety.
