Bio:
  • Grew up with his mother in the city. Not poor, but single income until he was old enough to work a little. Went from being the most ambitious paperboy on the street to highest-earning server to lowly cage cleaner at the zoo.
  • No close family other than his mother, who won’t speak of his father. The only thing he had of his father (so he’s told) was a pet dog named Clover who died a few years ago.
  • Clover’s death happened to coincide with his dropping out of college courses (pre-veterinary) in favor of paid work at the zoo.
  • Since he’s been at the zoo, he’s become quite adept at sneaking into the enclosures and spending time with the animals. He even met a girl, Kira, who has the same penchant for after-hours exploration that he does.

Geasa
1. Heroic Legendary Geas: Tadhg’s legend is bound by a forbiddance, and should he ever touch iron, the geas is broken. Among other things.
2. Token Ability Geas: As long as Tadhg does not consume the meat of a lion, his command over and understanding of all creatures is greatly improved.
3. Token Willpower Geas: Tadhg is bound to defend and aid the helpless. As long as he’s able to do so, his spirit is renewed.
