"Ulfric Stormcloak. Some here in Helgen call you a hero, but a hero doesn't use a power like the Voice to murder his King and usurp his throne. You started this war, plunged Skyrim into chaos, and now the Empire is going to put you down, and restore the peace."
―General Tullius, at Helgen to Ulfric Stormcloak[src]

TES5 Tulius putyoudown

General Tullius is the Imperial commander of the branch of the Imperial Legion in Skyrim and military governor of the province. He can be found inside Castle Dour, in Solitude. He wears a unique piece of armor and carries an Imperial Sword.

BackgroundEdit

Tullius is an Imperial originally from Cyrodiil, who has been sent to Skyrim by Emperor Titus Mede II to quell the uprising of the Stormcloaks.

General Tullius is first seen at Helgen, presiding over the attempted execution of Ulfric Stormcloak for his rebellion against Imperial authority and the murder of Torygg, Skyrim's High King. However, the World-Eater's attack on the garrison of Helgen allowed Ulfric and the other captured rebels to escape back to Windhelm to reorganise.

Political viewsEdit

Tullius is said to be opposed to the White-Gold Concordat and to resent the Thalmor, which he ironically has in common with his nemesis, Ulfric Stormcloak. This becomes apparent during the quest Season Unending, when Ulfric expresses a vehement indignation about the Thalmor being present at the negotiations in High Hrothgar, and Tullius shows a thinly veiled agreement with Ulfric right in front of Elenwen.

Despite being the commander of the Imperial Legion in Skyrim, Tullius often displays ignorance and disinterest about the history and culture of the Nords. However, if the Dragonborn completes the civil war questline in favor of the Empire, Tullius will mention that even though he "will never understand these Nords," he has come to foster much respect for them, stating that "The harshness of Skyrim has a way of carving a man down to his true self."

InteractionsEdit

The Dragonborn first meets General Tullius in Helgen where he prepares to execute a captured Ulfric Stormcloak. His execution was disrupted by an attack by Alduin.

Missing in ActionEdit

The Dragonborn can find an Imperial Missive which details Tullius being aware that the Thalmor kidnapped Thorald Gray-Mane and has tasked clan Battle-Born to inhibit any inquiries regarding his disappearance. Should the Dragonborn pursue diplomatic means to negotiate Thorald's release, the Thalmor guards of Northwatch Keep will deny having him as a prisoner and furthermore would refuse to release him unless by order of the Imperial Legion. The Dragonborn can ask Tullius to order his release, but he will deny them the request, stating it would cause far too many problems.

Imperial LegionEdit

Tullius Elenwen Helgen

Tullius and Elenwen at Helgen

If the Dragonborn sides with the Legion, Tullius is involved in most of the Legion's quests:

Battle for WindhelmEdit

Tullius will deliver a speech in an attempt to bolster his troops' courage and lead the siege on Windhelm. He and Legate Rikke will follow the player across the city, until they reach the Palace of Kings. Once there, the general demands Ulfric and Galmar surrender. Immediately after, a fight ensues and, once the enemy is defeated, Ulfric will tell Tullius to let the Dragonborn kill him, saying it will make for a better song. The player may refuse and let the general have the honor. Following this, Tullius and Rikke step out and the former delivers a second speech to his troops, reassuring that the war is over and they can return home. In addition, he promises higher wages for the Legionnaires in Skyrim and pensions for the families of the fallen. If interacted with, the Imperial soldier will comment on his newly-developed respect for the Nords and claims he will not return to Cyrodiil for quite some time, claiming that, despite his discomfort with Skyrim's cold weather, he has come to see the province as a home.

StormcloaksEdit

Battle for SolitudeEdit

If the Dragonborn joins the cause of the Stormcloaks, General Tullius is defeated alongside his second-in-command, Legate Rikke. After a brief exchange of words, the Dragonborn is offered a chance by Ulfric Stormcloak to personally execute Tullius. Whether the Dragonborn defers to Ulfric to kill Tullius or ends the general's life themself, Tullius will be killed one way or another. Before his death, Tullius concedes Ulfric and the Stormcloaks had a point regarding the decadence of the Third Empire and the uncertain future Skyrim faces, but with his last words he claims the Imperials are not the villains and warns Ulfric that the Civil War ultimately benefited the Thalmor the most.

DialogueEdit

Show: Diplomatic Immunity
At the Thalmor Embassy:

"I need another drink"
This must be awkward for you. "That's putting it mildly. The Thalmor invited me here to remind everyone that they can tell the Empire what to do. I would refuse, but I don't want to jeopardize the peace between us."
What do you know of our host? "Elenwen is a formidable woman. She lacks for neither cunning nor ambition. Now that I think of it, she would have made a fine Imperial general."
"Keep an eye on these Thalmor. You never know..."

Show: How goes the war?
In Castle Dour, prior to participation of the Civil War questline:

How goes the war?

  • "By holding onto Falkreath, we control acces to the Reach, Whiterun, and the Rift. Ulfric will try for it soon. We'll be there to stop him."
  • "Hjaalmarch is an important buffer zone between the rebel forces and the capital. Ulfric will try to break through at some point."
  • "Ulfric will want to take Whiterun from us. But we will hold fast. We can't give the rebellion free reign through the center of Skyrim."
  • "Controlling the Pale gives Ulfric a port town and takes the pressure off of Windhelm. But it's only a matter of time before it's back in our hands."
  • "There's not much up there, but if we can regain Winterhold, our proximity to Windhelm should keep Ulfric wary and wasting troops garrisoned at home."
  • "We will oust Ulfric from Windhelm soon enough. And when we do, I'll have his head on a plate."
  • "We need the Rift. We need to regain control of it before we can march on Windhelm without worry about our rear guard."
  • "It's good we hold the Reach. Were the rebels to gain control, the silver mines would give them coin to hire more thugs and expand their violence."
Show: Joining the Legion
In Castle Dour:

"In joining the Legion, you'll be taking an oath binding you to the service of the Emperor and thus to every citizen of the Empire."
Actually, I'm not sure. I need to think about it. "I see... Well, the Legion will still be here when you change your mind. Rikke believes in you. And I'm starting to see why. Consider this. What greater glory than to serve the Emperor and his citizens here in Skyrim, in these days of greatest need?"
I'm ready to take the oath. "Well then. Repeat after me. Upon my honor I do swear undying loyalty to the Emperor, Titus Mede II... (or simply "to the Emperor..." if Mede has been killed in the Dark Brotherhood questline)"
"Upon my honor I do swear undying loyalty to the Emperor, Titus Mede II..." (or simply "to the Emperor..." if Mede has been killed in the Dark Brotherhood questline) "...and unwavering obedience to the officers of his great Empire."
"...and unwavering obedience to the officers of his great Empire." "May those above judge me, and those below take me, if I fail in my duty."
"May those above judge me, and those below take me, if I fail in my duty." "Long live the Emperor! Long live the Empire!"
"Long live the Emperor! Long live the Empire!" "Welcome to the Imperial Legion, soldier. Just remember, we take care of our own. Once you're in the Legion, you're in it for life. Speak to Beirand, he's normally out by the forge. He'll get you outfitted. Now, if I'm not mistaken. Legate Rikke has a special assignment for you."

Show: The Jagged Crown
In Castle Dour, after obtaining the Crown:

Here's the Jagged Crown. Legate Rikke sent me to deliver it to you. "Excellent work, soldier. I have to admit, I had my doubts it even existed. Did you run into any any trouble?"

Nothing I couldn't handle. "That's what I like to hear. I'll get the full report from Legate Rikke."
We lost a lot of good men. I hope it was worth it. "That's not for you to decide. Soldier. I wouldn't have sent you in the first place if it wasn't going to be worth it."
The Stormcloaks were there ahead of us. "Yes. Well, I didn't respond as quickly to the Legate's suggestion as perhaps I should have. But at least we ended up with the damn crown."

"Now then... I need someone I can trust to deliver a message of great import to Jarl Baalgruf of Whiterun. We have it on good authority that Ulfric has raised enough men to attack the city of Whiterun. The Jarl, however, refuses the Legion's support. This missive should convince him. Be aware soldier, these documents contain sensitive intelligence for the Jarl's eyes only."

Show: The Battle for Whiterun
In Castle Dour, after the battle:

"By defeating Ulfric at Whiterun we have solidified the allegiance of the Jarl. Perhaps the Stormcloaks will soon lose heart for this little rebellion of theirs once and for all. I'm promoting you to Quaestor. Take this blade, a symbol of your new station and responsibility. I'll keep an eye on your progress. The Empire rewards excellence, and so do I."
What are my new orders, sir? "You'd be wasted as a regular soldier. I have special plans for you. You'll be of greater use to me with greater flexibility. Make your way to our hidden military camp in the Pale. Rikke will have important tasks for you, and will need you when we reclaim the capital."

What will I be doing in the field? "You'll be doing whatever Rikke tells you to do. And I expect you to find creative ways to disrupt the Stormcloaks along the way."
Understood. "For the Emperor!"
Show: The Battle for Fort Dunstad
In Castle Dour:

"Taking the Pale gives us another port in Dawnstar, and puts us within striking distance of Windhelm. That should make Ulfric a bit more cautious, eh? Battles are won by trained and disciplined men. Wars are won by talented and exceptional individuals. I'm raising you to Praefect. Take this blade, as a gift and symbol of your new rank. You've earned it."
What are my new orders, sir? "Make your way to our camp in the Rift. We have a few surprises for the Stormcloaks lined up."

What will I be doing in the field? "You'll be doing whatever Rikke tells you to do. And I expect you to find creative ways to disrupt the Stormcloaks along the way."
Yes sir. "For the Emperor!"
Show: The Battle for Fort Greenwall
In Castle Dour:

"Taking control of the Rift was a great victory. Ulfric must be rather nervous with us so close to his door step. You've come a long way. I don't think we could do without you. I'm hereby raising you to Tribune."
What are my new orders, sir? "You're needed in Winterhold. Report to our hidden camp there."

What will I be doing in the field? "You'll be doing whatever Rikke tells you to do. And I expect you to find creative ways to disrupt the Stormcloaks along the way."
Yes sir. "For the Empire!"
Show: Rescue from Fort Kastav
In Castle Dour:

"Now that we have Winterhold, I can garrison some troops there until I'm ready to march on Windhelm. I have come to rely heavily upon you. It is only fitting that you join the upper echelon. I am hereby elevating you to the rank of Legate. On behalf of the Empire, and myself, please accept this gift along with your new rank. Congratulations."
What's next? "You've little time to glory in your accomplishments. We're gathering for our final assault on Windhelm. Report to our camp in Eastmarch."

Show: Post-Civil War dialogue
In Castle Dour:

Is there anything more I can do for the Legion? "Ulfric is dead and his army destroyed. There's not much more I could ask of you. The gods, however, I suspect, may have plans for you elsewhere. That said, Stormcloak true believers are still operating out of hidden military camps in the hills. If you encounter any on your travels, kill them. With luck, they'll soon lose heart and return to their homes and families. If not, we'll be forced to put them all to the sword."
Will you return to Cyrodiil? "No, I suspect Skyrim to be my home for many years. Can't say I'll ever get used to the damn cold, or understand these Nords... but I've come to respect them. The harshness of Skyrim has a way of carving a man down to his true self."
Now that Ulfric is dead, will there be peace? "The fiercest of the remaining rebels will continue to harass us, but by and large, the people here desire peace. What I'm not so sure about is the peace we've made with the Thalmor. But we'll keep that between the two of us, alright?"

Ralof: "Look at him, General Tullius, the Military Governor. And it looks like the Thalmor are with him. Damn elves. I bet they had something to do with this. This is Helgen. I used to be sweet on a girl from here. Wonder if Vilod is still making that mead with juniper berries mixed in. Funny, when I was a boy, Imperial walls and towers used to make me feel so safe."

Hadvar: "Captain. What should we do? He/She's not on the list."
Captain: "Forget the list. He/She goes to the block."
Hadvar: "By your orders, Captain. Follow the Captain, prisoner."
Tullius: "Ulfric Stormcloak. Some here in Helgen call you a hero. But a hero doesn't use a power like The Voice to murder his king and usurp his throne."
Ulfric: "[muffled grunts]"
Tullius: "You started this war, plunged Skyrim into chaos, and now the Empire is going to put you down, and restore the peace."

Show: The Jagged Crown
In Castle Dour:

General Tullius: "Tell me again, why I'm wasting men chasing after a fairy tale."
Legate Rikke: "If Ulfric gets his hand on that crown, it won't be a fairy tale. It'll be a problem."
General Tullius: "Don't you Nords put any stock in your own traditions? I thought the Moot chose the king. We're backing Elisif. When the Moot meets, they'll do the sensible thing."
Legate Rikke: "Not everyone's agreed to the Moot. You've been here long enough to know that Nords aren't always sensible. We follow our hearts."
General Tullius: "So what - Ulfric gets this crown and then suddenly he's High King?"
Legate Rikke: "No, it's not as simple as that, but the Jagged Crown would be a potent symbol for his cause to rally around. But, if we found it first..."
General Tullius: "And we gave it to Elisif?"
Legate Rikke: "In the absence of the Moot, it would further legitimize her claim."
General Tullius: "Perhaps... I'm entrusting you with what resources I can spare. But I'm warning you, if this turns out to be a waste of time and men..."
Legate Rikke: "It won't be a waste."
General Tullius: "Make sure you take the Auxiliary here. You can send him/her back when you get there and find nothing but old bones and cobwebs."
Legate Rikke: "The Stonefist's no fool. He's found the Crown. But we'll get to it first."

Legate Rikke: "I'm telling you, Ulfric's planning an attack on Whiterun."
General Tullius: "He'd be insane to try. He doesn't have the men."
Legate Rikke: "That's not what my scouts report, sir. Every day more join his cause. Riften, Dawnstar, and Winterhold support him."
General Tullius: "It's not a cause. It's a rebellion."
Legate Rikke: "Call it whatever you like, General. The man's going to try to take Whiterun."
General Tullius: "Jarl Balgruuf..."
Legate Rikke: "Balgruuf refuses the Legion's right to garrison troops in his city. On the other hand, he also refuses to acknowledge Ulfric's claim."
General Tullius: "Well, if he wants to stand outside the protection of the Empire, fine. Let Ulfric pillage his city."
Legate Rikke: "General."
General Tullius: "You people and your damn Jarls."
Legate Rikke: "Sir? You can't force a Nord to accept help he hasn't asked for."
General Tullius: "If Ulfric's making a move for Whiterun, then we need to be there to stop him. Draft another letter with the usual platitudes, but this time share some of your intelligence regarding Ulfric's plans. Embellish if you have to. We'll let it seem like it's his idea."
Legate Rikke: "Yes, sir."
General Tullius: "You Nords and your bloody sense of honor."
Legate Rikke: "Sir."

Show: Battle for Windhelm
In front of the gate into Windhelm:

Tullius: "All right. It's time to deliver the final blow to the Stormcloak rebellion. You have all fought bravely, and sacrificed much to bring us to this point. Ulfric thinks he can hide behind the walls of his castle. But we will fight our way in and drag him out through the rubble to face justice. Because this is the end for them, the Stormcloaks will fight like cornered rats. They will be fierce and crafty. But they are no match for Legionnaires. You are the best and the brightest warriors in Tamriel. Professional soldiers, fearless and devastating. The Emperor will be paying close attention to what happens here today. Men who distinguish themselves will be well rewarded. Ready now! Everyone, with me! For the Empire! For the Legion!" </div> In the Palace of the Kings:

Tullius: "Secure the door."
Rikke: "Already done, sir."
Tullius: "Ulfric Stormcloak! You are guilty of insurrection, murder of Imperial citizens, the assassination of King Torygg, and high treason against the Empire. It's over."
Galmar: "Not while I'm still breathing, it's not."
Rikke: "Step aside Galmar. We're here to accept Ulfric's surrender."
Ulfric: "I'll never surrender Skyrim into the hands of a corrupt and dying Empire."
Rikke: "Skyrim doesn't belong to you, Ulfric."
Ulfric: "No... But I belong to her."
Tullius: "Enough! You are traitors and will die traitors' deaths. Stand down and face public execution, or advance and face summary execution by my hands. It matters little to me. Either way I'll be sending your heads back to Cyrodiil."
Galmar: "Well? What are we waiting for?"

After Galmar is killed and Ulfric is on his knees:

Tullius: "Well Ulfric, you can't escape from me this time. Any last requests before I send you to... to wherever you people go when you die."
Rikke: "Sovngarde... sir."
Tullius: "Right. Well?"
Ulfric: "Let the Dragonborn be the one to do it. It'll make for a better song."
Tullius: "Song or not, I just want it done."

After deciding who gets to kill Ulfric:

Rikke: "Talos be with you..."
Tullius: "What was that, Legate?"
Rikke: "Nothing. Just saying goodbye."
Tullius: "Well, the men will be expecting some kind of speech. And we'll need to hand the city over to that Free-Winter fellow."
Rikke: "Brunwulf. Yes, I've sent men to protect him and bring him here. Windhelm will need a government quickly if we are to prevent more violence."
Tullius: "The Legion will be staying here for quite some time. I don't expect there to be any further violence."

After leaving the palace:

Rikke: "Attention! General Tullius has an announcement!"
Tullius: "The rebellion is over! Ulfric Stormcloak is dead!"
Imperial Soldiers: (Cheer)
Tullius: "His head will be sent to Cyrodiil where it will adorn the walls of the Imperial City! Let this day be a final warning to those who still call themselves Stormcloaks! We are turning the city over to Brunwulf Free-Winter, an honorable and faithful man! Many of you will be staying in Windhelm to aid the Jarl in restoring order and stamping out any embers of rebellion that may still smolder here! In appreciation for your exemplary service, I am doubling your pay and compensation for the widows of your fallen comrades!"
Imperial Soldiers: (Cheer)
Tullius: "I am proud of all of you! All hail the Emperor! All hail his legionaires!"
Imperial Soldiers: (Cheer)

After the speech:

Tullius: "I hate giving speeches."
Rikke: "It wasn't so bad."
Tullius: "I hope we haven't just created a martyr."
Rikke: "There's bound to be resistance. There are still Stormcloak camps, tucked away in the hills. They'll no doubt strike wherever and whenever they can. But, without Ulfric to inflame their passions, they'll settle down and return to their homes eventually."
Tullius: "I pray you're right, Legate. In the meantime, we'll continue to root them out and put them to the sword. We couldn't have done this without you. The Empire glories in your accomplishments. (Speaking to the Dragonborn.) Come Rikke, there's still much to be done."

Show: Battle for Solitude
In Castle Dour:

Tullius: "Enough... enough..."
Ulfric: "This is it for you. Any last words before I send you to Oblivion?"
Tullius: "You realize this is exactly what they wanted."
Galmar: "What who wanted?"
Tullius: "The Thalmor. They stirred up trouble here. Forced us to divert needed resources and throw away good soldiers quelling this rebellion."
Ulfric: "It's a little more than a rebellion, don't you think?"
Galmar: "Heh."
Tullius: "We aren't the bad guys you know."
Ulfric: "Maybe not, but you certainly aren't the good guys."
Tullius: "Perhaps you're right. But then what does that make you?"
Ulfric: "You just said it yourself."
Galmar: "It makes us right."
Tullius: "And if I surrender?"
Ulfric: "The Empire I remember never surrendered."
Galmar: "That Empire is dead. And so are you."
Tullius: "So be it."
Galmar: "Just kill him and let's be done with it already."
Ulfric: "Come, Galmar. Where's your sense of the dramatic moment?"
Galmar: "By the gods! If it's a good ending to some damn story you're after - perhaps the Dragonborn should be the one to do it."
Ulfric: "Good point."

(At this point the Dragonborn can choose wether they want to kill Tullius themself or not, following this the Civil War ends.)

TriviaEdit

  • General Tullius is voiced by Michael Hogan. Hogan also voiced Doc Mitchell in Fallout: New Vegas, another Bethesda publication. Hogan is also notable for his roles as Saul Tigh, the XO of the Galactica, in the sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica, and as Captain Bailey in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
  • It is possible to meet Tullius walking with Elenwen below Helgen immediately following the attack. He is heading west, so it is necessary to go to the left of the Guardian Stones until you reach another road heading that way if one wishes to meet him. His dialogue is the same as if he is standing inside Castle Dour.
  • Tullius's coffin can be found inside the Solitude Catacombs, along with Legate Rikke's, if the Dragonborn sides with the Stormcloaks in the Civil War.
  • His character model seems similar to the famous bust of Julius Caesar, Roman general and statesman.
  • After the battle, General Tullius says that he suspects that a second war with the Aldmeri Dominion may happen sometime in the future as he talks about how he is "not sure about the peace with the Thalmor".
  • Although he wears a unique piece of Heavy Armor, Tullius wears Imperial Light Bracers and Imperial Light Boots, which are Light Armor. This is most likely so that the bracers and boots match his armor's color scheme.

  •  PC   360   PS3   If Tullius promotes the Dragonborn to Praefect, he says "Take this blade, as a gift and symbol of your new rank. You've earned it." However, sometimes Tullius gives a shield instead of a blade.
  •  PC   360   PS3   During "Reunification of Skyrim," Tullius may give the reward for rallying a hold, but afterwards his script acts as if the deed was not completed, preventing further objectives from being obtained.
  •  PC   360   PS3   In the "Battle for Solitude," during the scripted interaction between Tullius, Rikke, Ulfric, and Galmar, Tullius can be "killed" before he is supposed to be. He will lay on the ground and, like any dead body, can be moved, but he continues to blink and continues dialogue with Ulfric and Galmar after Rikke is killed. After Ulfric gives you the honor of killing him, the slightest damage will kill him and the quest will show as completed and can be continued.
  • Occasionaly, immediately after "Unbound," he and Elenwen can be found wandering the woods near Riverwood.
  •  360   If, during "Battle for Windhelm," Tullius was using a bow before entering the Palace of Kings, he may not sheathe the weapon, and when he asks the player if they want to kill Ulfric and they refuse, Tullius will do nothing but stand there with his bow in hand. Killing Ulfric will cause Tullius to then continue on as if nothing happened.
  •  360   If Tullius is told to kill Ulfric at the end of "Battle for Windhelm," he will use a power attack as if he was dual-wielding swords, though he only uses one.
