Vampire Faction -- Protecting the Bloodline

When you talk to Garan Marethi -- the elf -- he tells you that one of the brood has joined with necromancers, and this is simply not a good thing.  He orders you to destroy what amounts to a boss-level vampire (it will either be a Master Vampire or a Nighmaster Vampire), and they will appear in some random location -- usually a camp, cave, or ruin.

This was one of the quests that was located at a place I had not visited before -- kind of cool that -- so I had to fast travel nearby and hoof it in.  The world of Skyrim is so huge that it really is not all that surprising that there are places we have yet to visit.

Disposing of a Traitorous Vampire Necromancer

You end up battling more than a few of the necromancers as well as the target, but the challenge should not be too daunting, and it brings you one quest closer to resuming the story line, so cool that!

When you return and report your success you are rewarded with a random item that has a random enchantment, and when you talk to Garan and ask about helping out he tells you to return to Feran, who has something for you.  This ends the quest PROTECTING THE BLOODLINE.

I'm having an issue. The vampire elf Marathi (dawn guard doc) gave me a quest protecting the bloodline. It sent me to Orotheim. I killed everyone in that cave and the arrow is still pointing to the ground and it won't finish the quest. I know it's a bug bc I looked up all the random places the quest can take you and Orotheim is not even on that list. Plz help. Idk what to do
