- Tolfdir has heterochromia iridum. His right eye is hazel and his left eye is green.
- During the College quest The Staff of Magnus, Tolfdir is made Master Wizard, replacing the late Mirabelle Ervine.
- Despite being named Arch-Mage of the college by completing The Eye of Magnus, Tolfdir is effectively in charge of the college after that point, and you have no more power or influence over the NPCs of the college than you did before. Tolfdir is also the one you have to answer to if you steal, assault someone, or otherwise break the college's rules and end up being forced to complete the quest Rejoining the College.
- When explaining the existence of the Augur of Dunlain, he does it in a different voice than how he normally speaks.
