Glistel is a Dark Elf agent living at Malintus Ancrus' house in Chorrol. You may hear many rumors from townspeople expressing their disgust at the relationship. It is possible, however, that this relationship is merely a front; as they are in fact both Thieves Guild members, and the only representatives of the guild living in the city. She offers basic Sneak training.

She wears upper-class clothing consisting of a highwayman's shirt, a green silk garment, and a pair of green velvet shoes. She is armed with an iron dagger and carries her key and a modest sum of gold.


Glistel will introduce herself when first spoken to:

"I'm Glistel. What do you need?"

Asking her about the city will prompt her to talk about her housemate:

"My housemate, Malintus Ancus [sic], and I are well-known in certain circles here. But, you don't travel in those circles, do you?"

When asked about Chorrol, Malintus will provide a hint:

"Glistel and me, we keep an eye on things here in Chorrol for certain interested parties... as a public service, like."


The townspeople are quick to speak rumors about the situation between Glistel and Malintus:

"I can't believe that Glistel would live with that Malintus Ancrus. Shameful, and her being such a lovely girl."
"I don't understand what Glistel is doing with Malintus Ancrus. I mean, have you seen her? And have you seen him? I just don't get it."
"I'm sure you've heard that Glistel and Malintus Ancrus are living together. Simply shameful."
"Have you seen Glistel and Malintus Ancrus together? Isn't it awful?"

Though not everyone shares the same outlook on the relationship:

"The whole thing is a big shame. She's such a nice young girl."
"I don't see a problem with it. Perhaps they're in love."
"You're right. It's shameful. Still, what is anyone supposed to do? It's her life."

Others will reply:

"It is awful. Her poor mother. What is Glistel thinking?"

While some will be more forgiving:

"I don't see a problem with those two. It's a bit odd, but that's their business."


  • It is never specified as to why exactly Glistel and Malintus' relationship is so controversial to the townsfolk. In the final game, it appears that Glistel is of a higher class than Malintus, based on their clothing, but this is never elaborated on.
    • A likely explanation for this, is that Malintus was originally an Orc by the name of Murgakh gro-Ushag. The name of their key in the final game is a leftover of this, and multiple internal names also confirm this fact. The rumors about Glistel and Malintus were also re-recorded, as seen by attached notes, so it is possible that the townsfolk were originally meant to be outraged at the fact that she was in a relationship with an Orc, which is a lot rarer than mer-man relationships.
