Rosso Talacci is a common site near the city of Raeze. You can find him plying his trade on the Riat River or down a the docks, most of the time. Other times, you can find him selling fish in the market, or if he has an especially good day, to the taverns and inns. The only time he is at his home is when he is either salting or smoking his catch, or when he is sleeping. During the day, cats and children follow him around. He constantly smells of fish.
Unlike most of the fishermen in the area, Tal fishes the few creeks and ponds in the area, spending most of his time wading in the quick current of the Riat River, spear-fishing with his trident. Tal usually catches enough fish to keep himself in clothes and equipment and eat something other than fish some days of the week. He does not store a wealth of treasure.
His friends call him "Tal," as he is a tall, thin, lanky fellow. He normally wears a wide-brimmed straw hat, a cloth headband, a white Argossean tunica that reaches to his knees and is belted at the waist, and leather sandals.
He is good natured, black headed (with short thinning hair), clean shaven, and sun weathered.
He has a grown daughter named Miep. Tal lives alone, as his wife died many years in the past. Talacci will not talk about that.
As Tal is getting on in his years, he doesn't not move as fast as he did in his youth, but he still knows how to pull in a catch. He's one of the best fishermen in the area.
