She was a witch of Reach origins known for her remarkable prowess in air magic and her ill-fated rivalry with her sister Ulecia, a water mage of comparable power. Tancia and her sister were once revered as two of the greatest Reach witches, but their unquenchable desire for power ultimately drove them toward a perilous and destructive journey. The tale of "The Sister Who Turned Her Skin Red," named after Tancia, tale served as a cautionary tale about the perilous pursuit of power and the devastating consequences consorting with the Daedric Princes can unleash.

Singer Tansal (fl. before 1E 973)Edit

Tansal was a master swordsmith and sword-singer from the early-mid First Era. He forged a sword first wielded by Makela Leki's father, which bore a serpent's crest.

He was the creator of the Spire's Atronach Altar, and also collaborated with Sinderion of Skingrad to develop the Frostcrag Apparatus Table. He was in some way associated with Lennasaan and Rindsey, two great adventurers who were buried in an ice cave that served as the underground vault of the Spire.

When age began to overwhelm Rendil, he entrusted many of his belongings to Aurelinwae of the Imperial City. A long-lost relative of Rendil's, the Hero of Kvatch, was his sole heir and successor and inherited the Spire in 3E 433. Rendil wrote the Frostcrag Spire Memoirs on his deathbed, leaving instructions on how to restore the Spire to its former glory. His dying wish was granted by the Hero of Kvatch, who compensated Aurelinwae and returned Rendil's possessions to the tower.

Following the end of the crisis, he was succeeded by his pupil Llevule Andrano as the Archcanon of the High Fane.

Tarvyn Othren (fl. before 2E 582)Edit

Tarvyn Othren was a pioneer conjuration mage. He is accredited with the summoning of the first Iron Atronach guar in history.

At some point before 2E 582, on a drunken dare, he decided to perform the conjuration. The summoned guar immediately killed his companions. Consumed by grief, Othren sought redemption for his heinous act. Ever since then, he only rode on that guar as a reminder of his mistake.

Despite the morbid origins of his discovery, by 2E 582, the art of conjuring Iron Atronachs shaped like guar was popularized among conjuration mages.

Saint Terilde was a revered figure among the Altmer.

Terilde died at some point before 2E 582. Their fingerbone was kept as a holy relic inside the Torinaan, among other prized items of religious and cultural value such as The Sceptre of Aldarch Salinsoril, The Silvered Skull of Aldarch Castaarie, Syrabane's Sacred Medallion, The Broken Blade of Pamenya, Circlet of Saint Ohmandil, Golden Lute of the First Monastic, and Lockmaster's Sigil of Xarxes.

Thadon, Duke of Mania (?b - 3E 433)Edit

Thadon was a Bosmer madman and Duke of Mania at the beginning of the Greymarch of 3E 433. He resided in the House of Mania in the Shivering Isles. Thadon was known for his extreme debauchery and self-indulgence. This hedonistic lifestyle eventually led to a deterioration of his mental faculties, resulting in the Duke spending much of his time in a drug-fuelled haze. He is associated with the Diadem of Euphoria, an enchanted crown.

At some point, Thadon had a forbidden affair with Syl, the Duchess of Dementia. When this affair came to an end, Syl stole the Chalice of Reversal from Thadon as an act of revenge and hid it in Dunroot Burrow; without the Chalice, Thadon could not negate the harmful effects of Felldew, a cripplingly addictive drug. In 3E 433, Sheogorath sent the Hero of Kvatch to Thadon's court to become a courtier of the House of Mania. Thadon tasked the Hero with retrieving the Chalice from Dunroot Burrow, a root tunnel which cannot be entered without first ingesting Felldew.

The Hero later began the Ritual of Accession to become a Duke or Duchess of Mania or Dementia, although it is unknown if the Hero chose to replace Syl or Thadon. Regardless, the surviving ruler promptly defected to Jyggalag and became a Priest of Order, betraying the Army of Sheogorath and ultimately perishing within the tunnels of the Fountainhead.

Tharanus Ye Redde-Hand (fl. 1E 3rd century)Edit

Tharanus Ye Redde-Hand was a contemporary of Alessia, Morihaus and Pelinal Whitestrake and one of the earliest known Nedic ancestors of the modern noble Imperial family, House Tharn of Cheydinhal.

Tharanus Ye Redde-Hand was mentioned in the Tamrilean Tractates by Khosey. He was described as a slave overseer employed by the Ayleids of Fanacas, the mining hold in the hills north of modern-day Cheydinhal. According to House Tharn historians, he was probably literate and employed in some clerical capacity, due to the fact that Ayleids were known to have kept their business records in red ink.

According to Lady Euphemia Glaber's theory Tharanus and notorious Tharhan, the Mutilant of the Gradual Massacre in 1E 227 were the same person. This theory was disproved by the text of the "Scroll of Precursor Saints" discovered in the vaults below the White-Gold Tower by Chancellor Abnur Tharn in 2E 541. According to Chancellor Abnur the theory was coined by dishonest scholars who distorted the few texts that remained from the times of the Alessian Slave Rebellion for slanderous political purposes. The rare texts found by Abnur revealed that Tharanus was a critical supporter of Alessia's cause. Tharanus was responsible for the disruption of supply routes through forged logistical orders and even leading his own battalion into some of the war's bloodiest conflicts.

Tharhan the Mutilant (fl. 1E 227)Edit

Tharhan the Mutilant was a notorious historical figure who took part in the Gradual Massacre in 1E 227. Some historians speculated that he and Tharanus Ye Redde-Hand, a presumed ancestor of the noble Imperial House Tharn of Cheydinhal were one and the same person. Lady Euphemia Glaber's theory identified Tharhan with Tharanus. According to Chancellor Abnur Tharn this equation was based on questionable interpretations of obscure and questionable footnotes with the intention of distorting them for slanderous political purposes. This connection was disproved by the Chancellor, who discovered the text of the "Scroll of Precursor Saints" in the vaults below the White-Gold Tower in 2E 541, which contained more details regarding the deeds of Tharanus.

King Thassad II (?b - 2E 862)Edit

Thassad II was Crown High King of Hammerfell until 2E 862. Though it was traditionally a Forebear city, the High King of the Crowns sat in Sentinel's palace. Thassad strook a truce with Baron Volag during his reign. N'Gasta set up a tower on his island during Thassad's reign.

Upon his death by natural causes, Sentinel was taken by the Forebears, led by Volag. His son, Prince A'tor, attempted to recapture the city but was eventually defeated by combined forces of the Forebears and Tiber Septim's fleet at the Battle of Hunding Bay near Stros M'Kai.

King Thian (fl. late 3E)Edit

Thonica (fl. 3E 285 - 307)Edit

Thonica was an empress regent of the Septim Empire. She was the imperial consort of Emperor Uriel Septim V. In 3E 285, Thonica gave birth to their son, Uriel. In 3E 290, Uriel V was killed in Akavir at the Battle of Ionith, leaving Thonica a widow. Uriel VI was too young to rule in his own right, so following her son's coronation in 3E 290, Thonica was given a restricted regency until he reached his majority. The Elder Council held the true power in the imperial government during Thonica's regency, including the unlimited and unrestricted freedom to make laws. She reportedly enjoyed her time as empress regent and was reluctant to allow her son to assume full power. Uriel VI began slowly taking over the reins of the imperial government until, in 3E 307, he was finally allowed to rule on his own, ending Thonica's regency.

Councilman Thoricles Romus (fl. 3E 339)Edit

Thoricles is believed to be the Argonian member of the Elder Council who hired the assassins who claimed Empress Morihatha's life in 3E 339. He was rumored to be furious at her refusal to send troops to his troubled lands. Romus was tried and executed, though he protested his innocence.[9]

Thorormr Storm-Killer (?b - 3E 385)Edit

Thorormr Storm-Killer was a Nord chieftain of Thirsk who lived in the fourth century of the Third Era.

He became Chieftain of Thirsk after slaying the brothers Ani and Ali and presenting their enchanted hammers as a battle trophy. He's one of the longest serving rulers in Thirsk history, ruling for sixteen years.

Emperor Thules the Gibbering (fl. 4E 1st century)Edit

Thules the Gibbering was a Nibenese witch-warrior who assumed control of the weakened Empire at some point during the Stormcrown Interregnum in the early Fourth Era.

Thules was not a well-liked ruler, and he was known for having various perversions. Nonetheless, the Elder Council favored Thules over the Colovian warlord Titus Mede. Hierem, who came from an old and well-connected Nibenese family, served as a minister to Thules. In 4E 22, Titus Mede captured the Imperial City with a force of less than a thousand men, and Thules was deposed. After Thules' deposition, Titus Mede was crowned Emperor of Tamriel.

Tiber Septim (sometimes enumerated as Tiber Septim I or Septim I, and also known as Talos Stormcrown, Hjalti Early-Beard, and Tiberius Imperator, among many other titles) was a military leader who became one of the most famous figures in Tamrielic history, reigning as Emperor Tiber Septim from 2E 854 to 3E 38. Tiber Septim started his career in service under the Cyrodilic king Cuhlecain, where he was known as General Talos. In this role, he fought to unify Cyrodiil and finally all of Tamriel, an effort that culminated in 2E 896 with the birth of the Third Empire. He declared the onset of the Third Era at the end of the same year.

Tiber Septim ruled for 81 years and is considered by many to be the greatest emperor in history. He gave his name to the lineage of Cyrodilic Emperors known as the Septims. In the centuries following his reign, Tiber became revered as a god and saint, and is worshipped as one of the Nine Divines under the name of Talos (meaning Stormcrown in the language of the ancient Ehlnofey).

Sage Tirora (?d 2E)Edit

Sage Tirora was the sage of the Companions in the mid-Second Era. She lived in Fallowstone Hall in the town of Shor's Stone. She was responsible for compiling An Accounting of Enemies, a reference to threats commonly faced by Companions.

Tirora was killed in 2E 582 when Reachmen stormed Fallowstone Hall. The surviving Companions burned her ashes to summon her vengeful spirit, allowing her to aid them in retaking the hall. She was succeeded by Sage Svari. However, in death Tirora's soul was claimed by Molag Bal, and she was transformed into a Soul Shriven to spend eternity as a slave in Coldharbour. She was then imprisoned in a cell at the Great Shackle. Tirora was later freed by Vanus Galerion to help destroy the Great Shackle. With Molag Bal's defeat at the hands of the Vestige, her soul was released from servitude, allowing her to move on.

Provisional Governor Titus Alorius (fl. 2E 864)Edit

In 2E 864, he was the civil and military administrator of the Western Reach, posted there to quell "banditry and lawlessness".[10]

Emperor Titus Mede I (fl. 4E 22 - 48)Edit

Emperor Titus Mede I, a prominent figure during the early Fourth Era, came to power after the Oblivion Crisis. Before his reign as Emperor, Titus I had been a Colovian warlord, a soldier in an outlaw army, and a king in Cyrodiil. In 4E 22, after the seven years, he captured the Imperial City with less than a thousand men, seizing control of the crumbling Empire from Thules the Gibbering, thus ending the Stormcrown Interregnum. Although the Elder Council had preferred the rule of Thules because he was Nibenese, they were ultimately persuaded to accept Titus I as a liberator rather than a conqueror. He proved a shrewd and capable leader, and the province of Skyrim endorsed him as Emperor.

Not long after seizing control, Titus I successfully routed the army of another rival for the Ruby Throne, Eddar Olin. He founded the Mede Dynasty, fathered Prince Attrebus Mede, and had an unidentified brother who was carefully monitored by the Penitus Oculatus to ensure that he made no attempt to usurp Titus I. Titus I continued to reign as of 4E 48, the year of the Umbriel Crisis.

Emperor Titus Mede II (fl. 4E 168 - 201)Edit

Titus Mede II was an emperor of the Mede Dynasty during the Fourth Era. Three years after his accession, Titus II was pulled into the Great War against the Aldmeri Dominion. After four years, Titus II and the Imperial Legion defeated the Aldmeri Dominion's main army in Cyrodiil, but the Empire was in no shape to continue the war, forcing Titus II to sign the controversial White-Gold Concordat. The Concordat outlawed the worship of Talos and forced the Empire to cede a large section of southern Hammerfell to the Dominion. The ban on Talos worship caused discontent and eventually led to the Stormcloak Rebellion in Skyrim.

Sage Tjurhane Fyrre (1E 2790 - 2E 227)Edit

Tjurhane Fyrre was considered one of the finest Sages of the University of Gwylim, which he founded in the province of Cyrodiil. He was one of the few known remaining Ayleids, being born in the late First Era and dying at the age of 357 in the late-early Second Era. Tjurhane Fyrre studied the history of his people, when it was the Ayleid Empire, to when it became the tribal people of Tamriel. He was one of the few to publicly speak about his people and their religion, describing them as follows: "the nature of the tribes of Ayleid are multi-hued, their personalities often wildly different from their neighbor tribes."

Captain Tobias (2E 807 - ?d)Edit

Captain Tobias was a Cyro-Nordic ship's captain and mercenary. Being a close friend and ally of the hero Cyrus, having known the boy since he was young. He was born during the late-Second Era in the Colovian West, near the battlefield of Sancre Tor. His Nordic father, Borgas, had served as the captain of the House Guard of Far Falkreath Estate, a merchant family with ties to the Holds of Skyrim. Borgas eventually married a Colovian daughter, but she died in the Sack of Old Hrol'dan scarcely two years later. Tobias grew up with stories and romantic notions of his "father's fair Skyrim," a land of savagery and battle far different than the relatively civilized Colovian West. As soon as he could, he traveled to Haafingar to serve as a marine in the Longboat Legions of the Wulfharth Heirs. Ultimately, he deserted the ranks and became a smuggler, working the runs of the Iliac Bay. At Sentinel he met Cyrus, a Redguard who had long dreamed of leaving Hammerfell to sail the seas. When Cyrus killed his sister Iszara's husband, Hakan, Tobias took him in.

Tobias and Cyrus would continue on as mercenaries. Going on many adventures throughout Tamriel.

At some point in time, the Khajiit crime boss, S'rathra sent his band of brigands to a plantation outside of Tear to free his kinsmen from the Dres slavers. Tobias and Cyrus were among the brigands. Cyrus was able to free some of the slaves and it caused a giant revolt across the plantation. In the end, the Dres slavers were freed and the slaves were liberated.

After the Raid on Tear, Tobias and Cyrus went their separate ways, keeping in touch only through their mutual fixer, S'rathra. Tobias took up a merchant profession after the raid, given his increasing lack of "fight" with age. In 2E 864, Tobias' sent a letter to Cyrus asking to meet him at the Draggin Tale Inn, in Stros M'kai, explaining that Iszara had relocated there after Baron Volag's Purge in Northern Hammerfell and had gone missing. When they reunited, Tobias gave Cyrus all the information he knew of Iszara to help him find her.

Claims of unknown origin suggest that Tobias inspired Cyrus with his stories to take command of the legendary ship Dead Man's Dread and set sail north to the Sea of Ghosts.

Master Wizard Tolfdir (fl. 4E 201)Edit

Tolfdir is a Nord mage who serves as a Master Wizard of the College of Winterhold in the Fourth Era. Despite seeming foolish or forgetful at times, the professor is actually one of the best Alteration scholars in all of Tamriel.


Topal the Pilot (fl. Merethic Era)Edit

Topal the Pilot (also known as Topal the Explorer and Torval the Pilot) was an Aldmer explorer and poet. He was the first known Aldmer to explore Tamriel, charting Tamriel's sea lanes in the Merethic Era on his ship the Niben, after which the Niben River was named. Topal sailed into Topal Bay (which was subsequently named after him) and up through the Niben River until he was deep in Cyrodiil. Here he taught the native Bird Men how to read and write in exchange for the Eight Islands, the future site of the Imperial City and White-Gold Tower.

He made wide-ranging voyages, penetrating even into hostile environments such as Black Marsh, where he made some of the first recorded observations of Argonians: "manlike reptiles, fleet of foot and running the length of this great mire". The Udhendra Nibenu (Aldmeris for "Father of the Niben") is an epic describing Topal's voyages, but only fragments of the poem have survived. He supposedly also kept a record of his voyages named The Southern Coast as Far as the Eastern Sea, which were later kept in the Library of Dusk in Coldharbour. By the late Third Era he was recognized as the patron saint of Leyawiin, where a statue of him could be found in the southwest corner of town.

Torasa Aram (fl. 3E 427)Edit

Torasa Aram, curator of the Museum of Artifacts (Morrowind)

Torasa Aram was a wealthy Dunmer noblewoman who lived during the late Third Era. She used her wealth to establish the Museum of Artifacts, a museum in the Godsreach district of Mournhold. By offering large sums of money to adventurers, she was able to collect a significant number of artifacts, items of great and often divine power.

Her museum's collection was expanded greatly in 3E 427 due to the patronage of the Nerevarine, who sold many valuable artifacts to Torasa. In return for several donations made by the Nerevarine, Torasa parted with an ancient Dwemer Battle Shield from the Battle of Red Mountain. This shield contained a piece of Trueflame, the fractured blade of Nerevar which was later reforged by the Nerevarine.

As is the nature of great artifacts, many of the items from the museum's collection were not content to stay with one owner for long. Even by the time of the Oblivion Crisis in 3E 433, several artifacts had been reclaimed by their respective Daedric Princes, or had vanished to reappear elsewhere on Tamriel.

High Lord Torinaan (fl. early Merethic Era)Edit

High Lord Torinaan was a Legendary Merethic Era folk hero of the Altmer. Called "the Foresailor", he is said to have been the first Aldmer to set foot on the Summerset Isles at a site called Nine-Prow Landing on the northern coast of Auridon. When the Aldmer settlers were threatened by beasts known as Gheatus, Ilyadi, and Welwa, Torinaan used the spells of his ancestors to slay them and render the land safe. He is credited as the founder of Firsthold, the first and oldest Elven city in the Isles. A complex of ruins bearing Torinaan's name, standing just southeast of Firsthold, is dedicated to worship of the Divines and is a traditional ritual site for Altmeri rulers.

Captain Torradan ap Dugal (?b - c. 3E 286)Edit

For more information, see the main article.

Chieftain Torug gro-Igron (fl. 1E 9th or 10th century)Edit

King Torug gro-Igron was an Orcish chieftain who founded the first Orsinium in the Wrothgarian Mountains of High Rock. It grew from an armed camp into a kingdom under his rule in the early First Era, though objective details on that kingdom are not known. Chronicles of the time paint Orsinium a fortress ruled by savage law, leading raids on its neighbors along the Bjoulsae River. Orc historians call it a utopia, a peaceable land of agriculture and commerce. The truth is likely somewhere in between, but all written and archeological evidence was destroyed in the thirty-year Siege of Orsinium. Torug had died long before the time the siege began in 1E 950, as Orsinium was then ruled by King Golkarr. The exact date of Orsinium's founding is unknown, but it is known to have grown powerful as early as the ninth century of the First Era. Though some sources place the founding of Torug's Orsinium in the tenth century.

TorvesardEdit

Torvesard was a Dremora who began in service to Ithelia long ago. When being wiped from history, Ithelia saved Torvesard and preserved just enough of his memory so that he could one day save her in return. He bore unique tattoos on his body, wields a maul, has illusion-based duplication abilities, as well as the odd skill of showing up anywhere near undetected.

High King Torygg (?b - 4E 201)Edit

The spirit of Torygg in Sovngarde

High King Torygg was the Jarl of Solitude and High King of Skyrim until his death at the hands of Ulfric Stormcloak in 4E 201. Torygg's father Istlod ruled as High King for almost twenty-five years, and upon his death, the Moot formally named Torygg his successor (despite the disruptive presence of Ulfric, who used the forum to voice his desire for Skyrim's independence). Torygg found Ulfric's calls for independence moving, and respected him for voicing such a bold, borderline treasonous opinion. That is why when Ulfric came to see him in Solitude, Torygg intended to hear more of his arguments for independence with an open mind; neither he nor his court suspected that Ulfric was there to challenge Torygg until it was too late to stop it.

According to Ulfric, he challenged Torygg for the right to be High King, knocked him to the ground with the thu'um, then dispatched him with a sword. Some others say Ulfric "shouted him to pieces" or "ripped him asunder". The Empire and a number of the Jarls, however, viewed the killing of Torygg not as the result of an honorable duel, but as regicide, due to the fact that Torygg was young and had only limited martial training, while Ulfric was a war veteran wielding the power of the thu'um, and moreover, that the duel had been Ulfric's first choice of action, rather than diplomacy. According to his court wizard Sybille Stentor, Torygg had held Ulfric in high regard, and he might have been persuaded if Ulfric had simply asked Torygg to stand with him. Upon Torygg's death, his beloved wife Elisif the Fair succeeded him as Jarl of Solitude, and sought to claim the title of High Queen, with the Empire's backing.

Emperor Tosh Raka (fl. late 3E)Edit

Tosh Raka was an emperor of Ka Po' Tun (or the "Tiger-Dragon Empire"). Through unknown methods, he purportedly transformed himself into a Dragon. Certain sources claim that this transformative process also turned him into a god, with some sources going as far to state that he could be an Akaviri avatar of Akatosh and possibly holds a grudge against his “mirror brother”. He is allegedly the largest dragon in the world. Tosh Raka plans to conquer Akavir, and then set his sights on Tamriel.

Vateshran Tosmorn (fl. after 1E 1030, before 2E 302)Edit

General Tullius (fl. 4E 201)Edit

General Tullius (Skyrim)

Tullius is an Imperial General of the Legion. Originally from Cyrodiil, he was appointed Military Governor of Skyrim and tasked with crushing the Stormcloak Rebellion. Tullius firmly believed that Ulfric Stormcloak and his rebellion were a threat to the Empire which had to be eradicated, and that Ulfric was nothing more than a power-hungry usurper. Among supporters of the Empire, Tullius was commonly regarded as their best hope for victory. A very taciturn and serious man, he initially held little interest in Nordic culture, viewing it as nonsense, but eventually he learned to respect it. Tullius also despised the Thalmor, and believed the Stormcloak Rebellion was a mere interlude in the Empire's real conflict with the Aldmeri Dominion, even going so far as to remark that they almost made him want to throw in with the Stormcloaks. He believed the entire rebellion could be blamed on the Thalmor, who stirred it up to force the Empire to waste precious resources and soldiers.
