* LiteralMinded: In the Dark Brotherhood contract to kill him, it's possible to threaten him before you kill him by telling him to sing "A song of fear, and death." He apparently doesn't get the hint and starts actually singing a song about fear and death.

* {{Badass}}: All of the housecarls are amongst the most powerful of your followers (at a similar level, a Housecarl has around 150 to 200 more hit points compared to a regular Warrior-class follower). They are all equal in stats.



* {{Badass}}: He's unique among followers in that his level is 50% higher than the player's, so if you meet him at level 20, he'll already be at level 30 (almost all other Followers are at the same level as the player). Additionally, his level cap is 50, one of the highest in the game; this is matched only by Cicero, the members of the Circle, and the housecarls.
** Give him a couple of Destruction staves, stand back, and watch the bodies ''fly''.



* {{Badass}}: The family patriarch, Torbjorn, is the expert trainer for two-handed weaponry.

A stable worker in Riften and an apprentice of Hofgrir Horse-Crusher. He gets scammed by Sapphire and fears for his life because of it.

One explanation for this might be that [[spoiler: his HeelFaithTurn from a Daedra worshiper]] is why he doesn't use it anymore, since that school is heavily associated with [[spoiler: the Daedra and Oblivion]].

* TakeThatPlayer: His quest, and the overall introduction to the Dark Brotherhood, is carefully designed to make you feel a little ashamed of yourself. In ''Oblivion'', it was possible to be contacted by the Brotherhood by accident, but not so in this game. Specifically, you must break into Aventus's home, get mistaken for or pretend to be someone you're not (although the only other choice is to walk away and leave the quest unfinished), murder an AssholeVictim in cold blood, and then return to a child and tell him that you just solved all of his problems through murder. He also tells you quite happily that he's going to grow up to be an assassin like you so he can help children, too. Also, due to a bug he'll never actually return to the orphanage so you can't adopt him (with the Hearthfire DLC) and potentially guide him towards a nobler path.
