|Rank||Master Alterer |
Tolfdir is a mage at the College of Winterhold, where he teaches. An old, wise and friendly mage, Tolfdir is adept in defensive and Alteration magic, such as Greater Ward and Ebonyflesh. He serves as the Dragonborn's teacher and guide at the college.
Wares and routineEdit
As well as offering Master-level training in Alteration, Tolfdir sells Alteration-based items such as jewelry, staves, spell tomes, and mage robes. When not teaching in the Hall of the Elements, Tolfdir may be found sleeping or eating on the lower level of the Hall of Attainment.
Despite his age and apparently absent-minded nature, Tolfdir is a very powerful mage; however, he is never boastful, nor does he abuse his influence at the college.
InteractionsEditDuring the Dragonborn's first lessons at the College, Tolfdir instructs the apprentices about the proper use of wards. He also provides a lesser ward spell, free of charge, if it isn't already known. Thereafter, he serves as the Master-level trainer for Alteration, staying in the Hall of the Elements studying the Eye of Magnus while it is there.
Tolfdir's second lesson takes the apprentices to Saarthal, where the Dragonborn stumbles upon a secret passageway while collecting magical artifacts. Tolfdir accompanies the Dragonborn as a companion from this stage until the Eye of Magnus is discovered at the end of the crypt.
After recovering the Staff of Magnus from Labyrinthian, Toldfir gets paralyzed when he tries to assist with defeating Ancano. Afterwards, he replaces Mirabelle Ervine as Master Wizard due to her death in the skirmish that follows.
