Biography - Arc II
He is first seen in the aftermath of the Puppeteer Incident, serving as an aide to Quain'tana. Knowing of a practice bout to occur between the veteran leader and Ariel, he takes the time to fetch Ariel's preferred spear from her youth. He offers a few quiet words of encouragement to the young heir, then falls back to count the blows as they land. After ten brutal rounds of sparring, a beaten and bruised Ariel is lectured on the value of a temporary retreat. Taldrin walks up to collect the equipment and asks if the young Val requires a healer, though Ariel insists she will be fine.
Biography - Arc III
Taldrin is among the Sarghress defenders during the Hermionne siege on Machike'Shikumo.. He bore urgent news of the heavy bombard the goblins used against the wall to Ariel and Kel'noz. When the Nidraa'chal attacked the colony, Taldrin and his family were forced to evacuate to the city below.
The Nidraa'chal airship continued to follow the colonists, however, intent on eradicating them completely by dropping large rock masses on top of the city. Taldrin and Zareh joined up with the remaining Machike defenders, leading the ship on a chase deeper into the underground in order to draw them away from the rest of the survivors.
After dodging multiple mana blasts, the defenders eventually found their way to Sha'shi, a research outpost located in the heart of the underworld. There, they joined forces with the research staff in a desperate plan to take over the airship after it landed to take on supplies.
