    Tahi was born on the younger-established planet of Deluire in Civspace, which had a very contrasting population very blatantly split between the older and younger generations, and also served as a tourist hotspot for people passing through or staying in Hylotl-space for extended periods of time. It was due to the conflicting views he had against both generations of natives to Deluire, which stemmed from his frequent interactions with tourists that he began to feel a bitterness toward many of his own kind. As Tahi helped run a shop that sold various types of weapons and equipment including knives and guns, including to tourists, the younger generations of more pacifistic Hylotl quite openly expressed disdain toward him and his family, while the older generations outcasted him due to their traditional and somewhat bigoted attitude that never reared its head on Tahi due to his interactions with the diverse crowd that is tourists. Backed into a corner and without any real identity to stick with, he took up one of his own he grew to have an admiration for, donning the outfit of your stereotypical "Westerner" to make it clear to himself, and everyone else, that he's not one of them.

    Over time, Tahi's bitterness grew to be something he almost relished in. In his mid 20s, he'd assemble a few like-minded friends to lash back at the society that did everything they could to legally make his and their lives difficult and miserable, and took to robbing banks. As a bit of a gadgeteer by this point and being smart enough socially and strategically to not have to fire a shot at anybody, and possessing the tools to break in and out of the likes of vaults with relative ease, he'd perform numbers of these and quickly become an infamous, but respected criminal, all without letting his or his partners' identities slip. After years, he'd have piled up enough money to run his business comfortably even in tougher times, and eventually, buy a decently sized ship for himself and silently leave.

    Relationships & Family

    Parents: Tyson (father, fisherman), Varnea (mother, pet shop owner)
    Siblings: Kita (sister, nurse)
    Any enemies (and why): Hates ICIF. Hates Atlas less openly. Hates cults far and wide. Has a major distrust of Eyeguards as a whole. Hates most Shifters.
    Children: None, and isn't planning.
    (in no particular order)

    (except a few)
    Adela: My wife. I sure know how to pick them. If I ever meet the man responsible for making her, I'll be sure to thank him before I kill him. I couldn't have done better, and I can't possibly ask for better. I'm not happy without her, and I'm happier than I've ever been with her.

    Lillian: A friend of Adela's is a friend of mine. Especially one like that, and she's a good one. There aren't very many people quite as reliable as she is.

    Mae: It's very telling of a person's character who they really are when they're willing to stand by someone and fight, and possibly die beside someone they barely know, for a cause they've got no attachment to. I won't forget that any time soon.

    Mir: Woefully underprepared at all times, but somehow still manages to be useful. I'm not sure what to think of him a lot of times, but he's certainly friendly, and certainly helpful. He's a good friend.

    RedHorizon: Probably put his own job on the line for me a few times by now. But for what it's worth, we usually see eye to eye anyway. A real friend. I'm glad he's doing better and adjusting to being his own person after all this time.

    Dave: Shot me near the neck with a laser once, but it's forgivable. He didn't know it was me. Still almost killed me. He's still neurotic, but useful. I knew he would be somehow.

    Robin Flynn: I don't feel comfortable saying anything about her. I know almost nothing about her besides that she's something I hate, but not necessarily someone I hate. Any help was good help, anyway.

    Seru: Strangely more violent than a lot of Hylotl I'm used to seeing. A lot stronger too. Certainly has her faults, but I can get behind that.

    Zizania: I hope you're happy. I know the other one is.

    Irma: We were on the road to riches like we've never had and gutting the big fish with so much fewer resources and people to do it with. It's a shame that fucking stunt you and Ernie pulled botched it. At least we got paid. I'll still make due.

    Ernie: No comment.


    Peaceful or violent: Violent when provoked. Is, however, quite patient in most circumstances.
    Weapon (if applicable): Variety. Guns and improvised melee weapons.
    Style of fighting: A trickster with some brute strength to back it up. Will utilize a variety of gadgets to gain the upper hand or compensate for a lack of them with agility, strength, and a decent-enough weapon.


    Occupation: Mechanical and engineering work in general.
    Current home: Ship.
    Favorite types of food: Has an oddly high tolerance to spicy food in general, and loves it. In particular, likes to snack on roasted hot peppers. Usually chilis.
    Favorite types of drink: Being a Hylotl, he likes water, including flavored water. As far as alcohol goes though, his favorite is Cognac.
    Hobbies/past times: Blowing things up, shooting things, playing harmonica, tinkering with gadgets and making things in his workshop either for himself or Adela.
    Guilty pleasures: Likes the adrenaline rush that comes with a thrill, sometimes to his own detriment.
    Pet peeves: People who lack a sense of right and wrong. Stupid laws and regulations. Excessive complaining. Wasting time. People who just don't care, or can't be bothered.
    Pets: A cat named Minny.
    Talents: Is quite good at mimicking voices with a few moments of practice, as his vocal range is much wider than his default tone of voice would have one think. Is an excellent harmonica player.
    Favorite colors: A tie between blue and red, for several reasons.
    Favorite type of music: Likes music as a whole, but doesn't gravitate toward any one genre. Can listen to just about anything if it's tasteful.

    I was highly unaware that Tahi was a fucking beefed former bank robber

    When you said he looked very vaguely like this my brain got way too literal
