Taheritae (?b - ?d)
A sage quoted by Psijics to explain the apparent dichotomy between remaining faithful to both their rulers and their training: "In Mundus, conflict and disparity are what bring change, and change is the most sacred of the Eleven Forces. Change is the force without focus or origin". For lengthier quotes, see The Old Ways.
Nephew of and presumed successor to King Athyn Llethan of Morrowind. Purportedly died in a hunting accident close to the time of Llethan's own death, though some suspected King Hlaalu Helseth of involvement in both deaths.
 Talin (?b - ?d)
- The true name of the Eternal Champion.
- The Eternal Champion's father.
- The first name of General Warhaft.
These three people having the same name might simply be a coincidence, but it is possible that Warhaft and the Champion may be one in the same, and that the Champion may have been named after his father.
 Tansal (?b - ?d)
Taris Rendil was an Arch-Mage of the Mages Guild who constructed Frostcrag Spire. Rendil was dissatisfied with living in the Arcane University, so he constructed the Spire in the lofty Jerall Mountains of Cyrodiil to escape his colleagues' prying eyes. 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 Champion of Cyrodiil, 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 Champion of Cyrodiil, who compensated Aurelinwae and returned Rendil's possessions to the tower.
Taron Dreth is a Dunmer mage who claimed to be the "world's foremost expert" in Dwemer metallurgy and forging techniques. He is supposedly the author of The Aetherium Wars, but he actually plagiarized the work from a colleague, a secret he was willing to kill to protect. At last report, he was traveling in Skyrim during the Stormcloak Rebellion, most likely looking for evidence to support his stolen theories on Aetherium. He was killed in the wilderness in 4E 201.
The last Empress of the Reman Dynasty. In 1E 2899, her husband Reman III had her imprisoned in Gideon, Black Marsh, fearing that she was plotting a revolution against him. She was a character in the popular historical fiction 2920, The Last Year of the First Era.
 King Thagore (?b - ?d)
The last 'High King' of Hammerfell, member of the Crowns or Na-Totambu. Upon his death by the treacherous hands of Forebears, Sentinel was retaken by the Forebears.

 Thonica (?b - ?d)
 Councilman Thoricles Romus (?b - ?d)
Thoricles is believed to be the Argonian who hired the assassins who claimed Queen 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.
Tiber Septim, also known as General Talos, Hjalti Early-Beard, the Dragonborn, and Ysmir, was an emperor of Nordic descent who became one of the most famed figures in Tamrielic history, reigning as Emperor Tiber Septim from 2E 854-3E 38. Believed to have been born in the Nordic continent of Atmora in 2E 828, Tiber Septim started his career in service under the Cyrodiilic king Cuhlecain and 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 is also responsible for declaring the onset of the Third Era at the end of the same year. He ruled for 81 years and is considered by many to be the greatest emperor throughout history. Tiber Septim gave his name to the lineage of Cyrodiilic Emperors, the Septims. Tiber is now revered as one of the Nine Divines under the name of Talos, which means "Stormcrown".

 Provisional Governor Titus Alorius (?b - ?d)
Titus Alorius was one of the few Colovian officers who answered only to Tiber Septim, directly ruling the more rebellious of the newly conquered regions as provisional governors. In 2E 864, he was the civil and military administrator of the Western Reach, posted there to quell "banditry and lawlessness".
 Emperor Titus Mede (?b - ?d)
Emperor during the Fourth Era who came to power after the Oblivion Crisis. He was father to Prince Attrebus Mede. Before his reign as Emperor, Titus Mede had been several things: Colovian warlord, a soldier in an outlaw army, and a king in Cyrodiil. He took the Imperial City with less than a thousand men and seized control of the crumbling Empire.
Titus Mede II, Emperor of Tamriel during the Fourth Era. Soon after his coronation, he was pulled into the Great War by the Thalmor. He was visiting Skyrim aboard his personal transport vessel, The Katariah, in 4E 201. Some report that he was assassinated by the Dark Brotherhood, although conflicting reports claim the Dark Brotherhood was wiped out.
One of the finest sages of the University of Gwilym and a rare civilized Ayleid (Wild Elf). His published work on Wild Elves suggests a lively, vibrant culture. Fyrre is one of the very few Ayleids to speak freely on his people and religion, and said the nature of the tribes of Ayleid are multi-hued, their personalities often wildly different from their neighbor tribes (Fyrre, T. "Nature of Ayleidic Poesy" p. 8, Univ of Gwilym Press, 2E 12).
 Master Wizard Tolfdir (?b - ?d)
The pre-eminent scholar on Alteration and Master Wizard of the College of Winterhold in the Fourth Era. The somewhat forgetful mage was promoted after his predecessor, Mirabelle Ervine, was killed during an attempt by the Thalmor wizard Ancano to gain control over the Eye of Magnus in 4E 201. Although he was not made Arch-Mage, Tolfdir handled the day-to-day affairs of the College.
 Topal the Pilot (?b - ?d)
Topal the Pilot (also known as Torval the Pilot) was an Aldmer explorer who discovered the Niben River and charted Tamriel's sea lanes in the Merethic Era. 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 beastfolk natives how to read and write in exchange for the Eight Islands (the site of the Imperial City and White Gold Tower). Father Of The Niben was an epic describing Topal's exploration, but only fragments of this poem have survived. He is the patron saint of Leyawiin, where a statue of him can be found in the southwest corner of the town.
 Torasa Aram (?b - ?d)
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.
Torradan ap Dugal, "Scourge of the Abecean Sea, Terror of the Gold Coast, Cutthroat of Hunding Bay, and Lord Captain of the Red Sabre" was the infamous captain of a pirate fleet known as the Red Sabre, who preyed on unescorted supply ships along the Gold Coast during the Camoran Usurper.

High King Torygg was the Jarl of Solitude and High King of Skyrim until his death at the hands of Ulfric Stormcloak some time around 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 murder, due to the fact that Torygg was of a young age while Ulfric was at his prime, and that Ulfric had not exhausted his diplomatic solutions. According to his court wizard Sybille Stentor, Torygg had held Ulfric in high regard, and he may have been persuaded if Ulfric had simply asked Torygg to stand firm. Upon his death, his beloved wife Elisif the Fair became Jarl of Solitude.
 Emperor Tosh Raka (?b - ?d)
Tosh Raka was an emperor of Ka Po' Tun (or the "Tiger-Dragon Empire"), believed to have ruled some time towards the end of the Third Era. Through unknown methods, he purportedly transformed himself into a Dragon. Tosh Raka plans to conquer Akavir, and then set his sights on Tamriel.
 Tracizis (?b - ?d)
 Trechtus (?b - ?d)
 General Tullius (?b - ?d)
General Tullius was an Imperial General of the Legion and the military governor of Skyrim. Originally from Cyrodiil, he was sent to Skyrim to crush the Stormcloak Rebellion. A very taciturn and serious man, Tullis 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. Amongst supporters of the Empire, Tullius was commonly regarded as their best hope for victory. 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. 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. For more information, see the lore article.
 Turala (?b - ?d)
A character in the historical fiction 2920, The Last Year of the First Era. In the series, the Dunmer woman is banished from House Redoran by Duke Brindisi Dorom (her former lover), becomes a witch of the Skeffington Coven in Phrygias, then summons Mehrunes Dagon to destroy Old Mourhold as an act of revenge after being led to believe the Duke was responsible for the coven's destruction.
