1. It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.

Galen Arkenesis

Head Sculpt:
Normal (Urethane)
UB-01 (60cm)
  • Face-up artist(s):
    Date of acquisition:
    February, 2015 (Made in 2005)
    CoA and papers, Original box; Purchased through Doll Peddlar
    Reason for choice:
    The facial sculpt. Unidoll sculpts have great profiles. I wanted a face that was older and with a prominent, hooked nose.
    Best Points:
    *Smooth, realistic sculpting
    *Good range of head motion
    *Aged look to face
    Worst Points:
    *Bad posing
    *Terrible stander
    This exact UH-08 was one I considered when saving for my first. I looked at the price and thought, "There's no way I can afford that!"

    ...Six years later, I happened to browse Doll Peddlar...and he was still there. I'd narrowly missed snagging an Ark and was frustrated. Why not buy a ten-years-neglected doll instead?

    Professor Galen Arkenesis is a high elf from Achelon, a sister planet to Verdenil. He is an accomplished magus, diplomat, and the foremost expert on arcane theorem. This he teaches at his country's most prestigious school. A deep thinker and passionate heart, he is always trying to invent ways to improve the quality of life.

    Unfortunately he is also the bearer of an incurable disease. It saps his strength to the brink, wracking him with pain. Still he has not allowed it to stop him. A Shard with a talent for dreaming, he infrequently hosts offworld visitors. It was he who designed and oversaw the creation of cross-world portals.

    Of his past he speaks little. He is a longtime friend of Thaévyn's, with whom he had many adventures. He always wanted to sail the sea, but his service was cut short by the sudden death of a woman he loved. At some point he was in an intimate, abusive relationship from which the majority of his problems stem.

    He suffers PTSD and erratic depression. In between the highs and lows, he enjoys company, building model ships, and brewing his own tea. He is a great lover of children, and often visits the local orphanage.
