[[Lore:Cyrodiil|Cyrodiilic]] legends say Magnus can inhabit the bodies of powerful mages and lend them his power. He is also associated with {{Lore Link|Zurin Arctus}}, the Underking and is sometimes represented by an astrolabe, a telescope, or, more commonly, a staff.{{Ref|name=VoFitE}} He was rumored to have had dealings with the blades organization, going as far to entrust them with a map to his staff.{{ref|name=LMIL|[ Staff of Magnus] on The Imperial Library}}The {{Lore Link|New Life Festival}}, which takes place across Tamriel, was originally in celebration of Magnus.{{ref|name=ONBreda|[[Online:Breda|Breda]]'s dialogue in [[Online:Online|ESO]]}}
[[Lore:Morrowind|Morrowind]] legends, specifically from [[Lore:Vivec|Vivec]]’s famous sermons claim that [[Lore:Nerevar|Nerevar]] was banished from the library of the sun by the power of Magnus.{{ref|name=LOV|{{Cite Book|The 36 Lessons of Vivec}}}}
He supposedly created and used the {{Lore Link|Staff of Magnus}}, one of the elder artifacts of {{Lore Link|Tamriel}}. Legend tells that it's the only artifact capable of containing his immense power.{{Ref|name=Mirabelle|[[SR:Mirabelle Ervine|Mirabelle Ervine]]'s dialogue in [[SR:Skyrim|Skyrim]].}} In time, the staff will abandon the mage who wields it before he or she becomes too powerful and upsets the mystical balance it is sworn to protect.{{Ref|name=TL|{{Cite Book|Tamrielic Lore}}}} Another artifact attributed to him is the {{Lore Link|Eye of Magnus}}, an ancient relic of immense power that was found buried under the {{Lore Link|Nord}}ic city of {{Lore Link|Saarthal}} in the {{Lore Link|Merethic Era}} and later rediscovered in {{Year|4E 201}}.{{Ref|name=NoT|{{Cite Book|Night of Tears (book)}}}}{{Ref|name=Skyrim|Events of [[Skyrim:Skyrim|Skyrim]]}}
