Tamuz is one of the finest strategic thinkers of any Age.
As a mortal, he competed with Dragon-Blooded cadets—and
surpassed them by working longer and harder. It helped he was
a genius, but Luna rewarded his drive with Exaltation, and he
rose rapidly through the Deliberative military thereafter.
Then, his Solar mate Queen Chiara withdrew Tamuz
from the Deliberative’s army to help administer her domain.
Although each Lunar is bonded to a Solar partner, there was
no love between them. Still, civilian life enabled Tamuz to
become the protégé of Ingosh Silverclaws, and he introduced
Tamuz to politics and social engineering.
Chiara made Tamuz stay in their domain while she attended
the fatal banquet in Meru. He dutifully fought the
Usurpation until he realized the cause was hopeless. Then, he
joined Ingosh in the
Wyld. They and
spent centuries there in analysis and debate. In time, these
led to the Lunar program called the Thousand Streams River.
Tamuz fought his greatest battle during the Fair Folk invasion
that ended the First Age—and then, with Creation in
ruins, he and his fellow Lunars initiated their plan to build
Tamuz chose the Delzahn. He created the figure of “Tamas
Khan” to unite the Delzahn and lead them to conquer Chiaroscuro.
As planned, the Delzahn became a dual culture, half
desert nomad and half urban sophisticate. To this day, Tamuz
remains active as the secret guiding hand of the Delzahn.
In his human form, Tamuz looks like a fit, middle-aged
man with swarthy skin, salt-and-pepper hair and a small,
neatly trimmed beard and mustache. He generally wears the
clothes of a natty Delzahn aristocrat.
