Talish is a Tualaghi warrior mentioned in Erak's Ransom. He is a minor authority in the nomad band of Tualaghi, and usually travels with two henchmen who do his bidding. He and his henchmen established a reputation among the Arridi townspeople as thieves and standover men. They work with an informant, Saoud, to determine where wealthy Arridi merchants hide their money and products.
