* HonestCorporateExecutive: Compared to rest of the [[CorruptCorporateExecutive corrupt]] House Hlaalu leadership. In particular, when completing quests for Odral Helvi, you can report his orders to Crassius to receive alternate, less morally offensive ways to complete the quests (and eventually even get Helvi arrested).

Added DiffLines:

* MultipleChoiceChosen: One possible answer to TheChosenOne vs. TheUnchosenOne debate for the Nerevarine is that she didn't really "choose" an individual for that role. Instead, any individual who met the criteria set forth in the prophecy ''could become'' the Nerevarine.

* PraetorianGuard: "Her Hands" elite ordinators, decked out in powerfully enchanted high ordinator armor.
* SpringtimeForHitler: She tries this by sending [[spoiler:the Nerevarine to Sotha Sil's Clockwork City to die as a martyr]] for her cause, which is to establish a monotheistic state where only ''she'' is worshiped and only ''she'' is the savior of the people. This fails, [[spoiler: she dies]], and this failure leads to the eventual fall of the Tribunal Temple entirely.

* DefectorFromDecadence: Unlike Vivec and Almalexia, who chose to live and work among their people (at least until they were cut off from the Heart of Lorkhan,) Sotha Sil was the least concerned with the affairs of mortals and spent much of his time withdrawn from the world in the seclusion of his Clockwork City. If asked, Vivec will speculate that Sotha Sil may not even notice his godhood is gone [[spoiler: once the Nerevarine destroys the Heart.]]

* TheRemnant: By the time of ''Morrowind'', the ALMSIVI are a pitiful shell of what they once had been, and much of Morrowind has suffered as a result. The Tribunal are in a [[HopelessWar losing battle]] against Dagoth Ur, and they ''know'' this, but they will drag out the inevitable for as long as they can.

* TheGreatWall: After a re-awakened Dagoth Ur and his minions ambushed the Tribunal and stole two of the Tools of Kagrenac during one of their annual pilgrimages to the Heart of Lorkhan, the Tribunal tried and failed to reclaim them. Despite their efforts, they were unable to destroy Dagoth Ur. So, in order to contain his spreading influence, they erected the Ghostfence around his Red Mountain stronghold. The Ghostfence isn't a solid wall, but a series of pylons connected by a force field. The force field was originally powered by the Tribunal's divine power. However, they weakened over time without access to the Heart, so they were forced to [[spoiler: use the [[PoweredByAForsakenChild souls of dead Dunmer]] as a suplemental power source]]. By the time of the game, only Vivec is still channeling his divine power into the Ghostfence, and, as a result, has withdrawn completely from the affairs of mortals.
* GodCouple: Almalexia spent time coupled with both Vivec and Sotha Sil after becoming gods. Neither lasted all that long (at least, on the godly scale of time,) with her relationship with Sotha Sil lasting slightly longer (though more intermittent due to his MadScientist nature.) Almalexia did a lot of coupling, but considered Nerevar to be her lover long after his death. And Nerevar/Almalexia were a political God Couple while they were still mortal.

* GodsNeedPrayerBadly: After [[spoiler: the Nerevarine destroys the Heart of Lorkhan]], their connection to divinity is permanently severed. Talking to Vivec afterward reveals they are able to persist with a trace of their divinity in-tact due to the faith of their followers.

* BreakingTheFourthWall: His ''36 Lessons'' as well as some of his dialogue choices suggest that [[spoiler: his "godhood" comes from realizing that he was in a video game and using that knowledge to edit the situation around him. He makes vague references to things like the PlayerCharacter ("The ruling king who only he can address as an equal,") pausing the game, console commands, and the Construction Set LevelEditor.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Vivec is the only member of the Tribunal who still actively opposes Dagoth Ur instead of angsting over his waning godhood (Almalexia,) or retreating into complete solitude (Sotha Sil,) and once you fulfill enough prophecies to convince him that you ''are'' the Nerevarine, he gives you a detailed and succinct explanation on how to defeat Dagoth Ur and instructs everyone else on Vvardenfell to assist you however they can, while he holds the magical fort for you.
