Last Edited: 15 May 2021 6:16 amThis quest is available as early as after the Council hearing on Saren, and can be acquired in one of two ways. Paragons can simply walk up to Chorban near the rock garden North of the Council Chambers and talk to him, using the left-hand dialogue options to accept his task.
Renegade players however will want to ignore Chorban entirely. This is because this quest ties into the Jahleed’s Fears Side Quest, and you can get more Renegade Points during it if you’ve never met Chorban before then. After, you can accept Jahleed’s offer to Scan the Keepers at the very end of that Side Quest.
However you acquired this Side Quest, we’ll be starting at the Citadel Tower, going to C-Sec, the Docking Bays, the Lower Wards, the Upper Wards, and finally the Presidium, with a brief detour into the Wards Access corridor (there are no Keepers in Chora’s Den or the Lower Markets). This route provides the most efficient way to get all the Keepers with minimal backtracking.
All the Keeper location sections on this page are accompanied by maps for ease of use, with the numbers matching up with the text below. The image above is all the maps grouped together in a single image.
There are 4 Keepers in this section of the Citadel.
advertisementKeeper #1Keeper #1 is the one Chorban was scanning, located between the staircases up to the Council Chamber and the rock garden overlooked by the Rapid Transit terminal
Keeper #2Keeper #2 is East-South-East of Keeper #1, on a balcony overlooking a water fountain. You may pass by Rear Admiral Kahoku on the way over to it.
Keeper #3Keeper #3 is at the Southern-most point of the Citadel Tower. It’ll be found in the back corner just West of the back of the Council Chamber.
Keeper #4Keeper #4 is in the large enclosed area running along the West side of the Citadel Tower’s plaza, specifically in the Northern corner.
Once you have all four Keepers here, take the Rapid Transit to C-Sec.
C-Sec and Docking BaysThere are 3 Keepers in these two sections of the Citadel.
Keeper #5Keeper #5 is located in the Requisition Office on the East side of C-Sec. Head downstairs and, when you get to the bottom and enter the room, look to your immediate left to find it.
Keeper #6Keeper #6 requires a slight detour; enter the central C-Sec elevator to go up to the Docking Bays where the Normandy is. Go all the way to the end of the main large ramp and look in the right-hand corner to find it.
Keeper #7Keeper #7 is back in C-Sec, and is found in the Traffic Control room. From the Academy Atrium in the middle of the area, head upstairs to the C-Sec Offices, then continue forward and upstairs to make it to Traffic Control. Here go to the rail on your right to find this Keeper just past it.
Lower Wards, Upper Wards, Flux and Wards AccessThese sections of the Citadel have 6 Keepers in them total. Interestingly, the Lower Markets, Chora’s Den and Fist’s Office don’t have any at all.
Keeper #8Keeper #8 is found in the small room of the Lower Wards where Eddie Lang is hanging out. to get there from Keeper #7, return to the Academy Atrium and enter the elevator down the South stairs (the one behind the main elevator up to the Docking Bays).

Keeper #12Keeper #12 is in the red Alleyway, which is where you find the quarian towards the end of the Expose Saren Mission. Despite the map it’s actually impossible to get there from the Upper Markets. Instead, return to the central plaza and go through the door just East of the stairs to Flux. In this small corridor, take the left-hand door to enter the Alleyway; you’ll find the Keeper in the corner of the alcove on your right.
Keeper #13To get to Keeper #13 from Keeper #12, return to the small corridor and take a left into the elevator. At the top you’ll be in the Wards Access: face West down the corridor, then look to your right for a small room with some servers in it. The 13th Keeper will be in here.
