- Os senhores-magos da Casa Telvanni se isolam tradicionalmente, obtendo sabedoria e maestria em solidão. Mas certos senhores-magos ambiciosos, seus partidários, e clientes têm adentraram totalmente na competição para explorar e controlar as terras e recursos de Vvardenfell, construindo torres e bases ao longo de toda a costa leste. De acordo com princípios Telvanni, os poderosos definem os padrões de virtude. — Grandes Casas de Morrowind

Casa Telvanni é uma das Grandes Casas de Morrowind. Ela governava o Distrito Telvanni do leste de Morrowind, e administrava a porção leste do Distrito de Vvardenfell de seu assento do conselho em Sadrith Mora. A Casa é composta basicamente de magos egocêntricos e ambiciosos, e é conhecida por muitos como a Casa do mestre mago. Aqui, era comum subir nos níveis eliminando ou 'indispondo' outros membros. Dos senhores Telvanni, apenas Mestre Aryon de Tel Vos parecia ser capaz de olhar além de seu próprio nariz para a necessidade do povo; o restante desejava pouco mais do que ser deixados sozinhos para seus estudos, pesquisas e ambições. Os outros membros eram similarmente isolados em perspectiva e não queriam ser presididos por nenhuma outra instituição, predominantemente a Guilda dos Magos.
Os Telvanni, em geral, não interagiam com outras Casas ou Guildas, nem tinham muitos inimigos exceto pelos Abolicionistas e a Guilda dos Magos Imperial. Na Segunda Era, eles recusaram a se juntar ao Pacto Coração-Ébano, muito para o desgosto das outras casas. Na outra mão, os Telvanni não possuíam o ódio por vampiros que a maioria das facções possuem, e alguns de seus senhores e Bocais eram voluntários em falar com eles; magos não temiam vampiros tanto quanto os outros temiam.
All of the Telvanni Councilors on Vvardenfell lived in great towers (which required levitation to ascend), with one leader in each of their main towns: Sadrith Mora, Tel Aruhn, Tel Vos, Tel Mora, and Tel Branora. None of the Telvanni towns were on the Silt Strider routes; the only transport available to them was by boat, except for Sadrith Mora itself. Being the only Telvanni town with a significant Imperial presence, it could be reached by Guild Guide from another Mages Guild to the nearby Imperial-controlled Wolverine Hall. On the mainland, House Telvanni lands included the fort of Firewatch, east of Tel Mora, and Port Telvannis, located on the islands to the northeast of the mainland which extend out into the Padomaic Ocean.
The city of Sadrith Mora was the district seat of the Telvanni on Vvardenfell, even though the Archmagister, Gothren, did not live there, but resided in nearby Tel Aruhn. Sadrith Mora was home to the Council Hall, in which each Telvanni lord was represented by a lieutenant with the title of "Mouth". In general, the actual lords themselves lived in their own towers and did not attend the Council. Even Master Neloth of Tel Naga, who resided nearby in Sadrith Mora, did not attend the Council. Some great Telvanni opted out of the rat race for power within the Council entirely due to their isolationism. But, among those who actually cared about who the leader was, the ever-procrastinating Archmagister Gothren of Tel Aruhn, few ever voiced their opinions.
House Telvanni was among the staunchest defenders of slavery, which they saw as an ancient Dunmer right. Their ideals and desires, evidently not concerning themselves, were left to the slaves to obey. However, both Khajiit and Argonians, the two most common slave races, could join House Telvanni and advance with the same level of respect as other races. Many of the towns, notably Sadrith Mora and Tel Aruhn, housed slave markets. Telvanni holdings were also worked by slaves, whereas the other Great Houses preferred to use generic workers. Unsurprisingly, Telvanni were strong enemies of abolitionists.
Of the fate of the Telvanni lords of mainland Morrowind, little is known: however, of those on Vvardenfell, it is known that Archmagister Gothren of Tel Aruhn refused to recognise the Nerevarine as Hortator for House Telvanni - choosing instead a fight to the death, which he lost. Aryon of Tel Vos, by contrast, was the Nerevarine's greatest supporter in House Telvanni: and the others - Neloth of Sadrith Mora, Therana of Tel Branora and Dratha of Tel Mora - all were persuaded to back the Hortator. After the fall of Dagoth-Ur, it is known that Arch-Mage Trebonius Artorius of the Mages Guild demanded that the remaining Telvanni councillors be assassinated, as the price for his retirement and replacement by the Nerevarine as head of the Mages' Guild: however the Nerevarine appears not to have complied with the request, for one at least - Neloth - is known to have survived, although he was shortly afterwards to leave Morrowind and move to Solstheim. (In any case, Artorius was himself given official Imperial orders to retire shortly afterwards, although his own fate is disputed - Skink-in-Trees-Shade of Sadrith Mora claims that he left his post quietly, while Edwinna Elbert of Ald-ruhn claimed that he challenged the Nerevarine to a duel for his position and lost his life.) The Morag Tong had an outstanding writ on Therana's life, which the Nerevarine may have been the only one brave enough to attempt to carry out - it being generally accepted that she would be little loss to the house, with her advanced age and senility. Aryon himself was scheming at the time to fill the vacancy created by Gothren's death (and was backed by Baladas Demnevanni of Gnisis, whom he had persuaded to join the Council), and planned to introduce many reforms to Telvanni ethics and practices: although he would not stand against the Nerevarine if the latter were interested in the job - however the Nerevarine left Morrowind not long afterwards. The subsequent documented existence of a Telvanni ship named The Pride Of Tel Vos indicates that Tel Vos, Aryon's tower and town - originally a comparatively small and unimportant settlement - had risen to become a place to be proud of: and therefore that Aryon must have been held in considerable respect by the Telvanni at some point, since Tel Vos was nothing without him. So it seems he must have achieved his aim, however briefly (even though his subsequent fate is undocumented since the Oblivion Crisis.)
During the Oblivion Crisis in 3E 433, the Telvanni did their best to close the Oblivion Gates on Vvardenfell, but it was to no avail and the Daedra swarmed the land. During the same year, a Telvanni Arch-Mage Frathen Drothan turned rogue and gathered a band of mercenaries called the Drothmeri army in an attempt to topple Imperial rule. He led an expedition to Sundercliff Watch in the Valus Mountains of Cyrodiil to search for Mehrunes' Razor, but he was slain by the Champion of Cyrodiil before he could retrieve the artifact.
The Telvanni suffered greatly during the Red Year in the early Fourth Era. All of the settlements on Vvardenfell were obliterated, but the Telvanni survived and attempted to rebuild. Morrowind was then invaded by the Argonians of Black Marsh, and in an act of revenge for centuries of slavery, the Argonians focused on wiping out the weakened House Telvanni. Circa 4E 6, the last remaining stronghold of the House was sacked by the Argonian invasion force and Great House Telvanni fell. It is documented that some survivors attempted to flee aboard The Pride of Tel Vos, a ship which was later found wrecked along the coast of Skyrim, east of Winterhold. By this account, a single heir of the house survived: Brandyl Tenvanni, son of Lymdrenn Tenvanni, who was found as an infant by Argonians. He grew up in Black Marsh under the name Brand-Shei. Brelyna Maryon is also a descendant of House Telvanni. There are surviving, or new, Telvanni mage lords who still have holdings on Vvardenfell, although it is unknown what or where they are.
In 4E 16 the King of Skyrim sympathetically gave the island of Solstheim to the Dunmer refugees. Neloth had also traveled there to research the ash deposits from Red Mountain, bringing much of Morrowind's exotic flora and fungi to the now partially ash-damaged island. During his time there, he has been studying Heart Stones, fallout originating from the center of Red Mountain, and has learned how to use magic to weave living things from the ash.
By 4E 201, Neloth had finished growing the settlement of Tel Mithryn on Solstheim. Though the people of Solstheim view him as possibly mad, he was still well respected by the other Telvanni wizards. He often took apprentices, though he used them in painful experiments more often than he actually taught them. Neloth planned on returning to Vvardenfell after finishing research on the Ash Spawn, which started to appear on the island after the Red Year. Tel Mithryn and the Redoran-governed city of Raven Rock remained cordial, with the two settlements content to ignore each other.
