General Talin Warhaft served as the General of the Imperial Legion[1] and the personal bodyguard to Emperor Uriel Septim VII in the Third Era.


The Emperor & the General came back from Oblivion

During Jagar Tharn's betrayal of Emperor Uriel Septim VII, he not only banished the Emperor to Oblivion, he also sent General Warhaft there as well.[1] When The Eternal Champion defeated Tharn and reclaimed the Dragon Throne for Emperor Uriel Septim VII, not only did Emperor Uriel Septim VII come back from Oblivion, but General Warhaft came back as well. After the Emperor thanked The Eternal Champion for rescuing him, Warhaft said, "It seems, [character name], that I am quite in the way. Not only have you managed to save the Emperor, but my life as well. I cannot be but proud of one who has truly earned such renown, and my deepest respect...".

A few years after Tharn's defeat, Warhaft retired and lived out the rest of his days in an unknown location.
