Appearance[edit | edit source]
Taniel has dark hair, and his clothing is often referred to as unkempt or sloppy, most likely due to his constant involvement in combat. When he does wear his dress uniform, he is uncomfortable and out of place.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Taniel has a sort of whiny persona, often when dealing with his father. Despite his occasional immaturity, he is a level-headed officer, a steady leader, and one of the world's greatest Powder Mages. He can be serious as well. He often clashes with his father, seemingly unable to see past the prickly exterior.
He has a short temper, is loyal to his friends, and has a complex understanding of good and evil, ultimately deciding to look past his prejudices against the Privileged in order to work with them.

Powers/Abilities[edit | edit source]
Powder Mage[edit | edit source]
Taniel is said to be a very powerful powder mage, especially after the battle in Kresim Kurga. The god Adom states that he is the powder mage equivalent of a Predeii. He spends most of his time in a powder trance and is most likely addicted to gunpowder.
In addition to the natural abilities of a powder mage, sensing and ignition of gunpowder and entering a powder trance, Taniel has the rare ability to alter a bullet's trajectory in midair. This ability is what earned him the epithet "Two-Shot" as one of his most notable feats is simultaneously killing two Privileged with two bullets fired from the same rifle. This makes him a formidable marksman.
Combat abilities[edit | edit source]
Taniel is said to be a formidable opponent even with his bayonet and in hand-to-hand combat. His father Tamas notes that he has the hand-to-hand skills of a skilled infantryman and can hold his own against most.
