Gabrielle Benele (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Gabrielle Benele was a prominent Breton author and Mages Guild member of first rank active during the time of the Three Banners War. Before her tenure with the Mages Guild, she was part of the University of Gwylim, which she left and later rejoined through the Antiquarian Circle, the University's most prestigious historical society, whose members scour the continent for lost antiquities to collect and catalogue. There she became the most accomplished antiquarian and their leader. She participated in the Tamrielic Invasion of Coldharbour, where she played a major role in aiding in the defeat of Molag Bal and ending the Planemeld. Gabrielle had a sister named Sara who was also in the Mages Guild, though they were not very alike.

Blademaster Gaiden Shinji (1E? b - 970)Edit

Gaiden Shinji was a Redguard hero of the First Era and the leader of the Order of Diagna, who was killed during the Siege of Orsinium. He also founded the Arena in the Imperial City, and was its original Blademaster. He is best known for his famous proverbs such as "the best techniques are passed on by the survivors" or "honor wears the face of your next opponent". The combatants of the Arena refer to him in a manner most would reserve for gods, often saying things like "by Shinji", "Shinji be with us", and "for Shinji's sake". He is believed to have taken influence from Akaviri culture, in addition to his own.

Galana Septim (fl. 3E 1st century)Edit

Daughter of Emperor Uriel II, sister to Pelagius II and Amiel. According to the historical fiction, The Wolf Queen, she was originally promised to King Mantiarco of Solitude, but secretly married the Duke of Narsis instead. This prompted her father to promise Galana's niece, Potema to the King in order to avoid bad feelings between the kingdom of Solitude and the Imperial family.

Galathil (fl. 4E 201)Edit

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.

Druid Queen Galen (?b - ?d)Edit

Druid Queen Galen was possibly a mythological figure revered among the Druids. According to some stories, she was the first Archdruid and one of the very first Nedes to channel the songs of the Singer and the leader of the first Druidic circle in the deep woods of the High Rock. Some stories claim that the island of Galen was named in her honor.

Gallivere Lariat (fl. 3E 2nd century)Edit

A Breton nobleman of the Lariat Family, he was the Imperial consort of Katariah after the death of Pelagius Septim III. With her, he was the father of Uriel Septim IV, also known as Uriel Lariat.[1] Lariat's lack of a close connection to the Septim bloodline led to lingering sedition against his son's 'illegitimate' rule.[2] His surname is spelled "Lariate" in one source.[3]

Gallus Desidenius (?b - 4E 176)Edit

Gallus Desidenius was an Imperial thief who became Guild Master of the Thieves Guild in Skyrim during the Fourth Era. He purportedly maintained strong ties with many influential families in Skyrim, which allowed the Guild to operate relatively safely. He was also a member of the Nightingale Trinity, along with Karliah, with whom he had a romantic relationship, and Mercer Frey. The three of them swore an oath to Nocturnal to protect the Skeleton Key, which holds the Ebonmere portal open at the Twilight Sepulcher. Gallus was the author of The Nightingales.

Over time, Gallus became suspicious of Mercer's behavior. Mercer, in turn, became aware of Gallus' scrutiny. Though he was unable to find hard proof, Gallus became convinced that Mercer was responsible for desecrating the Twilight Sepulcher and stealing the Skeleton Key. Before he could dig any further, Mercer arranged a meeting, where he betrayed and murdered Gallus. Gallus' spirit became the last of the Nightingale Sentinels and defended the Sepulcher alone for about 25 years. For more information, see the lore article.

Galur Rithari (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Galur Rithari was a member of the Buoyant Armigers before he was infected with Vampirism. He is known for his manuscripts detailing a possible cure to the curse, whose contents are deemed heretical by the Tribunal Temple.

Galyn the Shelterer (fl. 4E 201)Edit

Galyn the Shelterer was a Dunmer Clockwork Apostle within the Clockwork City. At some point in time Galyn became the leader of the Clockwork Apostles of Sotha Sil. Galyn and the Apostles were aware of the death of their god at the hands of Almalexia in the late Third Era. Despite Sotha Sil's death, Galyn and the Apostles continued to inhabit the city, which continued to function and in fact thrive thanks to Sotha Sil's Mechanical Heart contingency.

In 4E 201, Galyn and his Apostles would face adversity when a former Apostle and apprentice of Sotha Sil Mecinar returned to the Clockwork City. Mecinar was previously banished from the city by Sotha Sil for profane experiments Mecinar had committed. Mecinar used Barilzar's Mazed Band to access the realm. Pursuing Mecinar into the realm was the Forgotten Hero who intended to stop Mecinar's nefarious plans to overtake the Clockwork City.

Galyn and the Apostles realizing the common enemy they shared with the Forgotten Hero would help the hero in their quest to take down Mecinar. The Forgotten Hero would ultimately defeat Mecinar although it’s unclear what the fate of the Clockwork City was following these events.

King Gardner (2E? b - 2E 563)Edit

King of Wayrest in the Second Era, and the last member of the Gardner dynasty, descended from a merchant prince who was first proclaimed king.[4] He expanded the city's walls and fortifications, allowing it to survive a 57-day siege by Durcorach's invading hordes in 2E 541. Wayrest's forces were instrumental in defeating the Reachmen, and in the aftermath, King Gardner joined with several other Breton kingdoms in signing the first Daggerfall Covenant, a pact of mutual defense.[5] Wayrest thrived for many years afterwards, until the king was suddenly felled by the Knahaten Flu along with his entire family, ending the Gardner dynasty.[6] He was succeeded by Emeric, of the Cumberland Dynasty, who would go on to form the second Daggerfall Covenant which vied for the Ruby Throne during the Interregnum.[4]

Gargrell Sorick‎‎ (2E? b - 2E 578)Edit

Gargrell Sorick was an alchemist of mixed Reachfolk and Breton heritage. Gargrell was not only an accomplished herbalist but also a former assassin, skilled swordsman, and the author of Notes on Alchemical and Enchanting Ingredients‎.

Garridan Stalrous (fl. 3E 5th century)Edit

Garridan Stalrous, Knight-Errant of Farmantle Glens, was a famous knight who lived some time in the late Third Era. He is best known for his failed quest to retrieve the Everflow Ewer, which resulted in his death and the creation of Garridan's Tears.

Gauldur (fl. early 1E)Edit

Archmage Gauldur was a powerful and renowned Breton conjurer who lived in Skyrim during the "dawning days" of the First Era. His aid and counsel were sought by many. A major source of his power was his magical amulet.

Though Gauldur was wise, wealthy, and honorable, his sons Jyrik, Mikrul, and Sigdis Gauldurson resented living in their father's shadow. They killed Gauldur in his sleep and split his amulet between them. Consumed by power, the three brothers laid waste to the surrounding villages until High King Harald sent Archmage Geirmund and a company of battlemages to stop them, which they finally did after a great effort and many casualties. Because of the destruction caused by Gauldur's family, King Harald ordered the Gauldur name struck from all historical records. But despite this age-long campaign to wipe out all mention of Gauldur, whispers of the legend survived, although bards still refused to tell the tale four thousand years later.For more information, see the lore article.

Gedna Relvel

Gedna Relvel (?b - 3E 427)Edit

Gedna Relvel, also known as the Lich of Mournhold and the Crimson Witch of Mournhold, was a powerful sorceress who was condemned for studying and practicing forbidden magics. She was laid to rest in the ruins of Old Mournhold, but she cheated death and became a lich. She is associated with the artifact, the Robe of the Lich.

During the Planemeld, Relvel served as a general to Molag Bal, and was summoned from her tomb to protect a Dark Anchor. However, she was banished back to her tomb by the Fighters Guild and the Anchor was lifted.

Centuries later, in 3E 427, her tomb was unsealed by a curious adventurer. She then attempted to spread the Crimson Plague, a disease which was thought to have been stamped out in the Second Era, throughout the city of Mournhold by infecting rats. The lich was destroyed by the Nerevarine before the disease could spread to more than a few people.

Archmage Geirmund (fl. early 1E)Edit

Archmage Geirmund was an Archmage of Windhelm and Personal Battlemage to High King Harald. He doesn't appear in the history of the First Era until after the sons of Archmage Gauldur killed their father, stole his powerful amulet, and began terrorizing Nordic villages across Skyrim. They caused so much havoc that Harald sent a company of battlemages led by Geirmund to stop them. The battle was devastating, but eventually Geirmund and his company forced the brothers to flee and tracked them down, one by one. Geirmund's forces suffered great losses in each encounter, but finally, only the middle child, Sigdis, was left standing. When he could flee no more, Sigdis challenged Geirmund to a duel in the fields near Ivarstead, a challenge which Geirmund was honor-bound to accept. Geirmund was slain, but he managed to take Sigdis with him, bringing an end to the Gauldursons' rampage.

To commemorate his courage, Harald ordered a tomb built for Geirmund, and had Sigdis interred there, as well, so that he would be forever guarded by the one who slew him. The tomb was built on an island in Lake Geir, which takes its name from the fallen Archmage. Then King Harald began an age-long campaign to erase all knowledge of the Gauldur tale so that his powerful amulet would not be reforged and used to threaten Skyrim once more. He did not succeed fully, as in the mid-Second Era, bards still sang about Geirmund's sacrifice, and there was even a festival to his memory, regularly held on the site of his tomb. In time, however, the story became gradually forgotten, and by the Fourth Era, it was known as the obscure "Forbidden Legend" and very few sources mentioned it. In 4E 201, the Last Dragonborn learned of the legend and disturbed Geirmund's tomb in order to retrieve Sigdis' portion of Gauldur's amulet. Geirmund did not seem to mind, although the draugr Sigdis took great exception.

Crown Prince Geldall Septim (3E 377 - 3E 433)Edit

Geldall Septim was the eldest son of Uriel Septim VII and Caula Voria and crown prince of the Empire. An able heir to his long-ruling father, he had taken over many administrative responsibilities in the years leading up to the Oblivion Crisis. Following the Restoration in the late Third Era, rumors circulated that Geldall and his two brothers were actually doppelgangers placed in the household during the Imperial Simulacrum, leading to riots in the Imperial City. For decades, Geldall and his brothers had not taken wives, which is attributed to fear of showing favoritism to the province their spouse would be from, thereby alienating the others, and marrying someone from Cyrodiil would be a missed opportunity for a good alliance. He eventually became engaged to a Breton woman named Tamrialle, and they held an engagement ball with many royal guests in attendance, including Queen Elysana. It would turn out that Tamrialle was secretly a Mythic Dawn agent, and Geldall was assassinated by her at the age of 56, in a coordinated strike against the Emperor's family.

Knight-Paladin Gelebor (?b - ?d)Edit

One of the last known Snow Elves to exist. He and about a hundred other Snow Elves took refuge from the Falmer and Nords in the massive yet well-hidden Chantry of Auri-El, but time and Falmer attacks dwindled their numbers to only two, Gelebor and his brother Vyrthur. Gelebor believed his brother had been taken and corrupted by the Falmer. However, Vyrthur had actually contracted vampirism from an initiate, and had started a plot to cause Auri-El as much suffering as he could. Gelebor's duty as Knight-Paladin was to guard the wayshrine at the Chantry of Auri-El in the Forgotten Vale, and he stayed there for millennia. When the Last Dragonborn and Serana went to the Vale in search of Auriel's Bow, Gelebor agreed to help, but first demanded that they kill Vyrthur. After the deed was done, he helped them with the bow and stayed in the Inner Sanctum of the Chantry, determined to continue his service to Auri-El for the rest of his days.[7]

High King Gellir (fl. early 1E)Edit

Gellir was a High King of Skyrim in the First Era. Little is known about him or his reign, except that he ruled at least several decades after King Harald, whose reign ended in 1E 221. He led the Nords to conquer several Dwemer city-states, including Mzulft, though the Dwemer would retake them about a century later.

Nordic chroniclers have ascribed his surprising success to inspired tactics and the blessings of Shor. Others assert the Dwemer were in a weakened state due to an ongoing civil war, which paved the way for Gellir's subsequent conquests.

Grandmaster Ghelin-Brol (fl. 1E 2703 - 2734)Edit

Ghelin-Brol was an Akaviri warrior who helped Emperor Reman Cyrodiil establish the Dragonguard and the first Grandmaster of the order. He was remembered as one of the four greatest Grandmasters the Dragonguard have ever known. He served as the Grandmaster from 1E 2703 to 1E 2734.

Patriarch Gherig Bullblood (?b - 2E 582)Edit

Patriarch Gherig Bullblood of the Dreadhorn Clan was a Reachman Blood-Forged clan leader active in 2E 582. He made an alliance with Domihaus the Bloody-Horned and led Dreadhorn to an ancient Nedic site - the Bloodroot Forge. The Reachfolk and Minotaurs soon began to work it, capture nearby settlers and force them to mine nirncrux to feed the forge. One of his ambitions was to conquer the province of Skyrim with the power granted to his clan by the nirncrux and weapons and armors forged in the ancient forge. He was also a knowledgeable smith and armorer, and penned instructions for his clansmen for crafting their arms and armor.

Master Gilvas Barelo (fl. 3E 427)Edit

Master Gilvas Barelo, Abbot of Holamayan, was the head of the secret order of Dissident Priests circa 3E 427. In other words, during the fruition of the Nerevarine Prophecies, he was the most prominent skeptic of the Tribunal Temple's explanation of how the Tribunal gained their divinity and the events surrounding their rise to power.

The Nerevarine came to him to learn more about the crisis Morrowind was facing. Barelo helped the Nerevarine find and interpret the Lost Prophecies of the Ashlanders in order to understand how to fulfill them and defeat Dagoth Ur. Gilvas saw the return of Saint Nerevar as the last and best hope of ending the threat posed by Dagoth Ur, and he understood that helping the Nerevarine do this was the only way to end the persecution of the Dissident Priests and advance their beliefs. Following the defeat of Dagoth Ur, the Temple attempted to make amends with the Dissident Priests and re-integrate the estranged order. With the disappearance of the Tribunal and the events of the Red Year, the Dissident Priests seized power in the early Fourth Era and formed the New Temple, although it is unknown what role Barelo played in these affairs.

Giraud Gemane (fl. 4E 201)Edit

The Dean of History at the Bards College in Solitude in and around 4E 201. He researched and taught musical history at the College, and was reportedly instrumental in saving the annual festival known as the Burning of King Olaf when Jarl Elisif the Fair planned to have it discontinued. Giraud compiled the popular song book Songs of Skyrim.[8]

Girgun the Colossus (?b - 4E 171)Edit

Girgun the Colossus was a Nord chieftain of Thirsk who lived in the second century of the Fourth Era. It is possible that he was chieftain when The Great War erupted between the Empire and the Aldmeri Dominion, although Solstheim was unaffected by it.

He became Chieftain of Thirsk after slaying Thjold the Ill-Minded and presenting his brains as a battle trophy. He would rule Thirsk for six years.

Gisl Round-Gut (?b - 3E 357)Edit

Gisl Round-Gut was a Nord chieftain of Thirsk who lived in the fourth century of the Third Era.

He became Chieftain of Thirsk after slaying the previous chieftain Einarr and presenting his sword as a battle trophy. He would be killed after two months by Einarr the Younger.

Gjadil the Keel-HaulerEdit

Gjadil the Keel-Hauler was an ancient Atmoran explorer who sailed from Atmora to Yokuda. She was said to have discovered new lands and cultures, but at the cost of half of her crew falling mad along the way. Her greatest adventure was supposedly raiding the palace of King Orgnum himself. According to legend, after she fled Pyandonea with the treasure the whole Maormer fleet chased her to a cove on Summerset Isle. She buried a single chest of treasure and enchanted it so that only her descendants could open it, before she made her way back home. Gjadil settled down and the story of her hidden treasure was passed along to her descendants.[9] During the mid-Second Era one of her descendants, known as Igeke Rat-Bite, searched for the treasure and eventually found it. Instead of great riches the chest contained a scroll that spoke of family being the most precious treasure of all, much to Igeke's dismay.[10]

Personal Secretary to the Emperor Glabrio Bellienus (fl. 3E 427)Edit

Glabrio Bellienus was the Personal Secretary to the Emperor during the reign of Uriel Septim VII, circa 3E 427. He was seemingly charged with dispatching orders to localized agents of the Imperial Order of Blades on behalf of the Emperor.

King Glinferen (fl. 1E 198 - 242)Edit

King Glinferen was the last known monarch of Atatar, an Ayleid city-state in northern Blackwood. Glinferen was a Daedraphile and fought against the Aedra-worshipping Barsaebics in what would become known as the Narfinsel Schism. This conflict culminated in the Scouring of Wendelbek in 1E 198, when King Glinferen led a combined force of Daedraphile warriors against the traditionalist Barsaebics. His victory drove the Barsaebics out of the Heartlands and into inhospitable Argonia, effectively ending organized Ayleid opposition to Daedra worship in Cyrodiil.

In 1E 242 the Alessian Slave Rebellion began when Alessia made Covenant with Akatosh to gain the favor of the Aedra. In desperation, King Glinferen sent an envoy to the Barsaebic city of Twyllbek in Argonia seeking aid against the Alessians. The Barsaebic king, still stininging from the humiliation of exile, bluntly refused to help. These events ultimately led to the downfall of Ayleid civilization and the abandonment of Atatar.

High Shaman Glynroch (fl. 2E 582)Edit

High Shaman Glynroch was the head priest of the cult of Hircine in Markarth during the Three Banners War in Second Era. He was the first High Shaman of the Shrine of the Hunt-Father, which was established during the rule of Ard Caddach and keeper of the Symbols of the Five Aspects.

King Golkarr (1E? b - ca. 1E 980)Edit

Golkarr was the Igrun ruler of Orsinium during the great siege in 1E 950. After bolstering his army with fleeing refugees from Hammerfell, he attempted to broaden Orcish holdings. He sought to capture the Bjoulsae River and force the kingdom of Wayrest to provide compensation for its services. Naturally, this did not settle well with their neighboring kingdoms, especially the Kingdom of Daggerfall. King Joile of Daggerfall allied with Gaiden Shinji of the Order of the Diagna and mounted a joint attack on Golkarr's kingdom. Eventually, after a 30 year siege, the allied forces breached Orsinium's Smelter Gate and overran the city in 1E 980.

Legend says Gaiden Shinji himself killed Golkarr, however, Shinji himself fell in combat with Baloth Bloodtusk prior to Joile's own death in 1E 973 and the final sacking of Orsinium in 1E 980. Bloodtusk had initially refused to come and defend Orsinium because he believed Golkarr to have done much to provoke and earn the wrath of the Bretons. Golkarr lived long enough to welcome Bloodtusk's belated support, and was still alive when the duel between (and assassinations of) Shinji and Baloth took place. Golkarr was also a name of a settlement only found on certain maps of Stormhaven.

Gor Felim (fl. 2E 670)Edit

Gor Felim, using the pseudonyms Marobar Sul and Anthil Morvir, was a playwright known for writing "penny dreadful romances", light entertainment for the elite of the old Imperial capital. He lived in Cyrodiil during the Interregnum, and very rarely left the capital. With the invented identity of Dwemer scholar Marobar Sul, in 2E 670 he published a series of seven books about the Dwemer. The series was presented as serious scholarly work, but in fact featured very few genuine Dwemer tale, being mostly just recast Ashlander, Argonian, or Nibenese peasant tales.[11] The series was debunked during the scholarly renaissance of the Third Empire, as early as the reign of Empress Katariah, but it still greatly influenced the popular image of the Dwemer in the eyes of the common folk of Tamriel.[12]

Gordhaur the Shaper (?b - 1E 242)Edit

Gordhaur the Shaper was one of the Ayleid Kings. He was leader of the city of Ninendava. In 1E 242, he was challenged to a duel by Pelinal Whitestrake, who smashed his head on a goat-faced altar at Ninendava and killed him. Pelinal also used a plague spell to prevent him from reforming by welkynd-magic.

He was named alongside other Ayleid Kings such as Fire King Hadhuul, Haromir of Copper and Tea, the Flower King Nilichi, and legendary Umaril the Unfeathered by members of the Wooded Eye, a Bosmeri cult of the Hermaeus Mora.

Emperor Gorieus (1E 461 b - 1E? d)Edit

An emperor of the Alessian Empire. His coronation in 1E 461 was a somber ceremony, in accordance with the rules of the Order, but still attended by most famous figures of the day. One of the guests, High King Kjoric the White of Skyrim, would later rebel against him, and Gorieus' forces killed him in the Battle of Sungard. His military defeat at the hands of King Rislav Larich of Skingrad in 1E 478 began the downfall of the Alessian Empire.[13]

Ambassador Goronwy (fl. 2E 582)Edit

Ambassador Goronwy was a Reachfolk diplomat and a mage in the service of Ard Caddach of Markarth. He was the Reach envoy to the city of Vashabar in the region of Dawnwood, a Bosmeri-controlled territory in southwestern Cyrodiil.

Goris the Maggot King (?b - 3E 427)Edit

Goris the Maggot King was a Dunmer necromancer operating on the island of Vvardenfell in the late Third Era. He appeared to be brutish, being responsible for summoning many undead and sending them to extinguish his perceived adversaries to whom he simply owed payment. At some point he came into possession of the Bow of Shadows, an artifact of Nocturnal which has historically been in Dunmer hands; notably, the infamous assassin Dram once possessed the Bow. Circa 3E 427, the Nerevarine plundered Goris' base of operations in Venim Ancestral Tomb in pursuit of the Bow. It is believed Goris did not survive the encounter.

Gormlaith Golden-Hilt (fl. late Merethic Era)Edit

Gormlaith Golden-Hilt was an Atmoran hero and Tongue in the Merethic Era. She was an accomplished warrior; at least four dragons fell to her blade during the legendary Dragon War. Gormlaith, Felldir the Old, and Hakon One-Eye were the leaders of the rebellion against Alduin, and the first mortals to learn how to wield the Thu'um, apart from the Dragon Priests. They were taught by Paarthurnax. During the Dragon War, Hakon and his allies sought the help of Miraak, the First Dragonborn, in defeating Alduin, but Miraak refused to help. Undeterred, together, they fought against Alduin atop the Throat of the World. Finding that they had no means to achieve a final victory, the companions successfully sent the wyrm forward through time using an Elder Scroll, though Gormlaith was killed before they could banish him. Thousands of years later, the spirits of Gormlaith and her compatriots assisted the Last Dragonborn in the final battle against their nemesis in the realm of Sovngarde. She also aided the Last Dragonborn in their other battles, when called to their aid with the Call of Valor.

Gortwog gro-Nagorm (fl. 3E 399 - 433)Edit

King Gortwog gro-Nagorm, Warlord of the Orcs (also titled Lord of Orsinium and King of Orcs and Warlord of the Subterranean Realms) was the ruler of the Orcish people in High Rock in the late Third Era and chieftain of the Minat Orc tribe. He is remembered as a skilled diplomat and a political genius.

The Orcish race had been homeless for centuries when Gortwog founded the independent kingdom of Nova Orsinium in 3E 399. Gortwog set about gathering dirt on his rivals to bolster his political situation, and in the process bought a stolen letter written by Emperor Uriel Septim VII. It had been sent to the then-Queen Mynisera of Daggerfall, but had never reached her. The release of this letter contributed directly to events which culminated in the Warp in the West.

Following the "Miracle of Peace", his kingdom had expanded to control much of the Wrothgarian Mountains as well as valuable coastline along the Bjoulsae River. By 3E 433, the Elder Council recognized Gortwog as king, and Orsinium as a county of High Rock, though portions of the kingdom extended into Hammerfell.

Archmagister Gothren

Archmagister Gothren (?b - 3E 427)Edit

Gothren was a powerful Sorcerer-Lord and a high-ranking and influential member of House Telvanni. By the late Third Era, he had become the Archmagister of the House, and led the Telvanni council from his tower in Tel Aruhn with an iron grip.


Gothryd (3E 381 - ?d)Edit

King Gothryd (sometimes Gothryd fitzLysandus) was born in 3E 381 to King Lysandus and Queen Mynisera of the Kingdom of Daggerfall. He became king upon the death of his father during the War of Betony. Gothryd was married to Princess Aubk-i of Sentinel following the war, though contemporary accounts paint drastically different pictures of his actions during the Battle of Cryngaine Field and relationship with Aubk-i. During King Gothryd's reign, the kingdom's borders expanded greatly due to the Warp in the West, and he was directly involved in events leading up to the phenomenon. Note: The following references are considered to be unofficial sources. They are included to round off this article and may not be authoritative or conclusive.


Lord Graddock (3E? b - 3E 403)Edit

Ruler of Reich Gradkeep in High Rock. As a neutral party, he attempted to negotiate a peace treaty between Sentinel and Daggerfall during the War of Betony. The treaty was rejected, however, and in the violent aftermath Graddock and nearly his entire family were killed.[14] His cousin was elevated to the throne, and renamed the lordship Anticlere, after his ancestral home.[15]

Grahkrindrog (DE b - 2E 184)Edit

Grahkrindrog is a high dragon whose name means "Battle-Courageous-Lord" in the Dragon Language.

Grahkrindrog was slain by the Dragonguard in 2E 184, after perpetrating great slaughter in Winterhold and Eastmarch in northeast Skyrim. The dragon's name was supposedly confirmed to the Dragonguard with assistance from mages of the College of Winterhold. His death was later documented by the Dragonguard in 2E 373. In 4E 201, he was resurrected by Alduin and caused havoc across the Holds of Skyrim. The Sheathed Blades chased down and defeated the colossal dragon, which was said to have plagued Skyrim for centuries in ancient times. Due to the nature of dragons, Grahkrindrog may not be truly dead and therefore could rise again.

The Gray FoxEdit

The Gray Fox, a mysterious master thief, had been the leader of the Thieves Guild in Cyrodiil for three hundred years by the time of the Oblivion Crisis. Although some doubt his existence, it was commonly believed that he was a single person, while in fact a series of different people had actually held the title throughout the years. The persona of the Gray Fox is created by the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal, which was originally stolen from Nocturnal by Emer Dareloth, the first Gray Fox. Nocturnal cursed the cowl to steal the identity of the wearer. Once a person dons the cowl, the curse transforms them into the Gray Fox and their original identity is lost. The cowl had been passed from one guildmaster to the next, preventing the guildmaster from appearing in public due to the infamous reputation of the Gray Fox.[16]

In 3E 433, Hieronymus Lex, a Watch Captain of the Imperial Guard, began a personal vendetta to bring the Gray Fox to justice, although the Thieves Guild eventually conspired to put an end to his hunt. The current Gray Fox, previously Count Corvus Umbranox of Anvil, had spent 11 years attempting to break Nocturnal's curse, and eventually succeeded. His best thief stole an Elder Scroll from the Imperial Palace, and used its power to re-write history. Without the curse, the Thieves Guild had flourished, and the Cowl's power to hide one's identity could be fully manipulated. The persona of the Gray Fox continued to lead the guild, with the Cowl being passed down from the redeemed Count Umbranox to the master thief who aided him.[16]

Great Knight (fl. 3E 405 - 417)Edit

Lord Magnessen was Great Knight of the Blades in the Iliac Bay during the late Third Era, serving as their leader.

The Green LadyEdit

The Green Lady is one of the two spiritual leaders of the Bosmeri people, also known as the Hunter, the Protector, the Vengeance of the Green,, Vengeance of the Woods, and Her Verdant Highness. Her existence as the embodiment of the primal ferocity, health, strength, and physicality of the Bosmer is comparable to that of a demigod. The Green Lady and the Silvenar are profoundly linked in both story and reality, and there must always be a pair. When one perishes, the other will soon follow.

Viridian Sentinel Greenward (fl. 1E)Edit

Greenward was a legendary Breton figure in the lore of northern Bangkorai, and the first Viridian Sentinel.

Prince Greklith (3E 392 - ?d)Edit

Prince Greklith of Sentinel was the son of King Camaron and Queen Akorithi, and brother of Aubk-i and Lhotun. Greklith became heir to the throne of Sentinel following the disappearance of their eldest sibling, Prince Arthago. Greklith died of a plague near the end of the Third Era.

Greywyn Blenwyth (?b - 3E 433)Edit

Greywyn Blenwyth was an infamous Altmer vampire and the founder of the Crimson Scars, a splinter faction within the Dark Brotherhood. He sought to eventually infect the entire Brotherhood with vampirism, but he was betrayed and the Crimson Scars were destroyed. Greywyn went into hiding, but was eventually tracked down by the Dark Brotherhood and assassinated. He was devoted to the worship of Sithis, and was likely a member of the Cyrodiil Vampyrum Order. Before his death, Greywyn gave ownership of his lair, Deepscorn Hollow, to the Hero of Kvatch, a long-lost relative.

Grimkell (fl. late Merethic Era)Edit

Grimkell was a powerful Atmoran sorcerer in the Merethic Era. As a member of Ysgramor's Five Hundred Companions, he took part in the Return, driving the Snow Elves from Skyrim. He searched for the hidden path to Sovngarde, the Nordic afterlife, betraying his fellow Companions in an attempt to create one for himself.
