And how do people know the lich who doesn't attack you in the stronghold is Tavara? And where is his journal? Is that what says it?
As far as I can remember, Tavara ruled Abydos and was also the founder of the Cult of Scylla; he was the leader of the six mages who governed the cult. There are also six seats in the meeting room in the first stronghold that seem to indicate that it is the secondary HQ for them, and there are a few books and notes in the Cult's HQ and the first stronghold that help connect the various plot holes surrounding the whole Cult incident. His journal should be somewhere in the first stronghold, it states that he served and betrayed the Undine to his own ends. This casts doubt on the theory of the Scylla being Undine, as they are in the second stronghold, unless they happen to be a devolved or half-breed race of the Undine that can be controlled by people who have served the Undine at some point.
