He is a slender man with black hair and thin fingers. He wears a black suit stained with blood.
Bloody Tan was a mortician in Elendel. Later, he moved to The Roughs, where his criminal activity made him notorious.
The entrance to Bloody Tan's hideout is in an old cold cellar behind the store. Connected to that is a long former smuggling tunnel, also Bloody Tan's gallery. The first body in the gallery is Geormin, the Coachman. Geormin had been mummified and propped up with wires. Farther down the tunnel is Annarel, who was preserved and hung on the wall in a pose, as if examining the rocks. There are six more corpses in the tunnel in various poses. One is in a chair, one is strung up as if flying, three are stuck to the wall, and the last is a slender man saluting. After that, a hole in the ceiling leads up into a church of the survivor. The hole comes out in the front of the church by four altars. The building is quite old and in disrepair. The roof is gone, and the benches and statues are strewn about.
Bloody Tan seemed to be unhinged, and used human bodies pierced with metal as ornaments (or for some other purpose) in his lair. Due to these clues, it is possible that he knew something of Hemalurgy. In addition, the way that he was able to perform his "trick" of moving Lessie in the path of Wax's bullet indicates that he could have had some power related to the Metallic Arts himself. Due to his mention of seeing Ironeyes and the Survivor, it is quite possible Harmony is behind it.
”Someone else moves us
”The best performances are those that can only be performed once.— Bloody Tan to Waxillium Ladrian
