"Just tell me what you desire - beauty or hideous deformity, nothing is beyond my skill." —Galathil[1]

Galathil was a Bosmer master of Flesh Sculpture. She extensively studied this art in Summerset and Hammerfell. Renowned for her adeptness in altering appearances, she gained fame among the nobility of Tamriel.[1][2][3]

The early years of Galathil remain shrouded in mystery. Her journey into the magical art of flesh sculpture began with an interest that led her to study under the masters of this craft, including the Faculty of Chirurgeons in Cloudrest. At an unspecified point before 4E 201, she dedicated three years to "walking with the Hollow-Faced Men of Nohotogrha," further enhancing her skillset. Eventually mastering her art, Galathil practiced her skills in the salons and manors frequented by Tamriel's elite, boasting a clientele that included nobility from both the Empire and the Aldmeri Dominion.[1][2]

In 4E 201, for reasons unknown, she found herself in the Thieves Guild base located in the sewer system beneath the city of Riften, the capital of the Rift hold. There, in the criminal underbelly of Skyrim, lamenting that the outlaws of the region were now her only clients, she continued to provide her magical services for the living. Details about her fall from grace and further fate were unclear.[1][2]
