I finished the subquest "Bridge Ablaze" by defusing the bomb under the bridge, talking to Waidwen and taking his soul with me. After I left the location through the starting portal, the paladin girl in the "hub" area approached me and made a comment about "an ember clinging to my cloak", thus recognising that I have contacted Waidwen. However, Waidwen didn't show up in the final fight against the dragon, I also don't see him in the hub area after defeating the dragon. He also disappeared from his original location at the Burning Bridge itself (where he stands in front of the soldiers moments before the explosion), and I can't do anything new in terms of interactions with his blown-up and torn body when I use his medallion on the pools of light. The quest progress in the journal is stuck on this entry:

Salutations SkyofSteel, 

 

From what you describe this is not a bug, all the spirits inherently have 3 choices, Help Fight Dragon, Join Player's army of Spirits, or Cast them into Oblivion. With Waidwen, the 2nd option that mentions your mission to confront Eothas is him joining your army of spirits. If you wanted him for the dragon encounter, you have to select the 1st option to have him "lend a hand against a dragon."

 

Hope this was of some help for you, my recommendation is if you want him for the dragon fight to go back to a save before making one of the three choices.

Alright, thanks for the comment. I thought it might have something to do with the choice regarding the soul, but was confused by the journal entry that didn't update to reflect Waidwen's fate and my choice.

 

No further questions, then.
