Well, thank you. I'm enjoying this conversation as well.
As for Harkon, I do not know. Perhaps Dawnguard will explain the inconsistency between the description of Skyrim's vampires in Immortal Blood and in the game. Speaking of which, I was happy to find out the identity of the vampire lord in the Laid to Rest. Since they tied in their vampire mythos from Oblivion I'm encouraged that they will handle Dawnguard's vampire narrative well.
We shall see
Laid to Rest was an interesting quest. Movarth's presence was awesome. It further supports the theory that the Order or at least those of the bloodline, are in Skyrim. And the fact that blending in, feeding on sleeping people and the worshipers of Clavicus Vile all points fingers to the Order. Not to mention Sybille Stentor fitting the description of one.
I hope Bethesda adds ingame books to support some of the lore. Harkon's castle is named Castle Volkihar, so something is a bit off. There was a theory that the true Volkihar were hiding away over the centuries, and the Falmer(which are rumored to be involved) were mistaken for the Volkihar because of their vampire-esque qualities of paleness and urge to live in the darkness, further twisting the concept of what is truly a Volkihar and what is not.
I wonder if Harkon will comment on the player's vampirism, there needs to be at least some tweaked dialogue such as when Alva spoke to you if you are a vampire or Arnbjorn if you are a werewolf.
