It is believed that Galaeron was a member of the party of adventurers that originally discovered the Godmaker as well as Harktaz’s Journal over 1000 years ago. They attempted to destroy the Godmaker but were unable to, and so the various members of the party took the separate pieces of the artifact to the far corners of Faerun to be buried and hidden forever. Galaeron took the Journal himself and studied it extensively. Around 400 years ago, he was called away from Candlekeep due to an emergency of some kind to the north and never returned. He is presumed dead.
