Blood of the Fold Edit
We are first introduced to Galtero when he encounters Richard Rahl by accident, and almost takes him in for questioning before Richard is rescued at the last minute by his D'Haran guards. He later attends a meeting, alongside Brogan and Lunetta, which Richard called to proclaim the dissolution of the Midlands. After the meeting, Brogan and Lunetta to a nearby midden heap, where Lunetta cast a circle spell that would force the Duke and Duchess Lumholtz to wait for them. Galtero grabs the Duchess's arms and pins them behind her back, after Brogan grabs the white lace at her bosom and rips her dress down to her waist. This makes her as helpless as her husband, who was frozen by Lunetta's magic. Galtero holds Duchess Lumholtz in place, while Brogan slices her nipple and Lunetta casts possession magic upon her, until the ritual is done, and the Duchess has become Brogan's minion. Brogan wants to kill the Duke by disemboweling him to make it look like a Mirswith did it. Galtero immediately offers to do it, but Brogan decides to do it himself. Instead, he asks Galtero if he would like to 'entertain' the Duchess, while he sees to the Duke. Galtero eagerly takes this offer, but does not want the Duchess to be compelled into cooperating by the possession magic. Brogan tells Galtero to be quick, since he wants to give her new tasks and cast another when Galtero is finished with her. He then grabs the Duchess, and forcefully drags her off to the midden heap, where he rapes her. When the trio are escaping Aydindril, Brogan and Lunetta are attacked by Berdine, but Galtero manages to knock her out, which allows the pair to take control of her. When Lunetta kills Brogan, Galtero kills her in revenge. He is subsequently killed almost immediately afterwards by Kahlan.
