Galerius is the man you absolutely must be chosen into The forgotten city. Without his help, there is no way to get an important character out of prison – a character who is holding an item that you need to access the Great Temple. The only way to get into this locked cell is to put Galerius in a position of power, and nobody really likes this guy. He only has one chance if he solves everyone’s problems. And he can’t do it alone. Getting Galerius chosen is basically the most complex and laborious task in the game, and when you do you will get the Greek badge – one of the four badges and by far the hardest to get.
If you’re struggling to choose Galerius and free Duli, here’s a full step-by-step breakdown and everything you need to do. That is much.

How to choose Galerius & Free Duli
Galerius is the hardest character to choose The forgotten city. In order to choose it, you need to follow the required steps below.
- Make malleolus to be eliminated from the election.
- Convince 3/5 Voters vote for Galerius.
Galerius will not run until Galerius is eliminated. By completing various quests, you can send Galerius on errands the first time you enter town at the start of a time warp.
- How to turn out malleolus:
- Before you can convince Galerius to stand for election, Malleolus must be eliminated. To begin, you have to find out its identity – look Ulpius commits suicide on the high temple to gain access to the villa.
- Accuse Malleolus of being Quinctius. Take the key in the front and go upstairs to speak to Claudia. Give her the bottle of wine in exchange for the love letter.
- How to get wine: Go to the big cave in town and collect a bottle of wine out of the building. This does not count as theft.
- Now that you have the love letter, you can tell Malleolus to get off. Also, tell him to release his servants.
Next we need to complete some helpful quests around town. By helping people, you learn how to help in future cycles – and you can direct Galerius to do these tasks for you to make him more popular. You will need to complete the following quests yourself before you can instruct Galerius to complete them in subsequent loops.
- Save Julia:
- To save Julia you need Silicon resin. Speak to Lucretia in the market to begin this quest. There are two ways to get the Siliphium from Desius’ booth – you can pay for it, or you can just steal it and trigger the Golden Rule.
- You can get 4,000 denarii from the cave near the slums. Usually a golden statue blocks this path. When you trigger the Golden Rule, the statue will move so you can make a lot of money.
- Bring the resin to Lucretia to heal Iulia.
A NOTICE: You do NOT have to pay Ulpius’ debts to win the election.
- Heal Rufius:
- To help Virgil, you must first help Rufius. Talk to Virgil in the market and later sneak into Rufius’ house to read his note. You will find out that he has rheumatism.
- Talk to Lucretia at the Shrine of Apollo. Discuss “What is your story” and learn more about the rheumatoid patient. Tell her the treatment – find her in the locked chest next to the entrance.
- If you tell her the treatment, she will give you the cure. Bring it to Rufius and give it to him, then tell Virgil that you convinced him to stop bullying.
- Save Fabia:
- To save Fabia from the assassin near the bathhouse, you have two options. There is a note near the shrine informing you that the building is about to collapse. If you send Fabia to hide in the shrine, she too will be crushed.
- Either way, you will find out that the shrine is collapsing. Tell Fabia to hide somewhere else, then lie to the assassin and tell him to check the shrine. If it collapses, he will be killed and Fabia will be saved.
Now that you have completed three out of five tasks, you can instruct Galerius to do these tasks for you. All four indeed! It can be chosen all by yourself while you do other things. You just have to wait another cycle to bring this information with you.
