Damrod accompanies Kynor to meet the elf. If the party is marching the prisoners to the cell, Damrod will ask the elf if he recognizes any of the prisoners. Someone may be an influential person here in Specularum, and it's wise to know when you've made a powerful enemy.

Sorry for the delay had health issues and personal issues to deal with.
The passage heads south and then turns east for about 40 feet. Ahead light is coming from another open secret door. There is arguing and shouting coming from the chamber within. One man is saying " you killed our father." The other says "I did what has must be done." Another smoother voice says "we need to make this quick and leave to get back to the sacred city." The first man says " my role is for our secret organization to take over the city, not your cult priest." Kynor who is sneaking ahead sees four men.
One man is dressed in platemail and shield and has a glowing sword. Another man is dressed in chainmail carrying a shield and glowing sword. A third man is dressed in chainmail carrying a sword and a fourth man dressed in chainmail, carrying a mace and wearing a fox mask. They are unaware of the party presence.
