    try tinkering with your graphics in game.... I had a similar thing for a while and now I can't recall how I finally got past it.
    Tenesi Faryon of Telvanni - Dunmer Sorceress who deliberately sought sacrifice into Cold Harbor to rescue her beloved.
    Hisa Ni Caemaire - Altmer Sorceress, member of the Order Draconis and Adept of the House of Dibella
    Broken Branch Toothmaul - goblin (bosmer template) Templar, member of the Order Draconis and persistently unskilled pickpocket
    Mol gro Durga - Orsimer Socerer/Battlemage who died the first time when the Nibenay Valley chapterhouse of the Order Draconis was destroyed, then went back to Cold Harbor to rescue his second/partner who was still captive. He overestimated his resistance to the hopelessness of Oblivion, about to give up, and looked up to see the golden glow of atherius surrounding a beautiful young woman who extended her hand to him and said "I can help you". He carried Fianna Kingsley out of Cold Harbor on his shoulder. He carried Alvard Stower under one arm.
    ***
    Order Draconis - well c'mon there has to be some explanation for all those dragon tattoos.
    House of Dibella - If you have ever seen or read "Memoirs of a Geisha" that's just the beginning...
    Nibenay Valley Chapterhouse - Where now stands only desolate ground and a dolmen there once was a thriving community supporting one of the major chapterhouses of the Order Draconis

    before you format try loading sweetfx on your machine . I'm not sure if we are allowed to link to modding sites and im quite new , liking the game and do not want to get a ban haha. But there are some easy manuals for it and should modify your textures. makes a huge difference in colors.

    Update video card drivers and/or try using TRUE full screen mode (not windowed mode or windowed fullscreen)

    Really we do it without like, the musical instruments. This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

    This is not caused by SweetFX, your textures, graphics card etc. Repairing wont help because that is not the issue. This was a bug in the past the was "fixed" in a prior patch but appears to have come up again in the latest updates.

    Here is a link to an old thread about it: forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/comment/1303983/#Comment_1303983

    In which I state:

    Repentance is a morph of Restoring Aura, an ability in the Templar's Restoring Light skill line. It "consumes the essence of corpses" to restore health and stamina from defeated enemies within it's range when activated. This burnt effect is then applied to the corpses to show that they can no longer be consumed again. When the effect is applied to players, the effect does not always get removed when you resurrect.


    And from this thread the supposed fix: forums.elderscrollsonline.com/en/discussion/139784/patch-notes-v1-5-4

    which states:
    Templar
    Restoring Light
    Repentance (Restoring Aura morph): Fixed an issue if you were affected by this ability, you would still have dark textures appear on your face and body.

    Do an in game /bug and include a screenshot so that ZOS is aware this is happening again.

    As for a work around, many have said if you do an in game action to force retexturing it may fix it, but it does not work every time. Actions such as an emote, putting on a disguise, or logging out. Even quitting the game and restarting will once in a while not fix the issue.

    This happens when a Templar uses this ability on you, doesn't matter what you are.

    I reread your post, I missed this the first time; You said all of the characters around you look like this too, is this all of the time? If that's the case I would submit a ticket on the Support page.
