”"I like cutting off toes"— Tonk Fah to Denth and Vivenna
Appearance and Personality
When Vivenna arrives in T'Telir Tonk Fah and his companion Denth intercept her as she travels to find Lemex the Idrian spymaster in the town. He helps convince her with his casual, somewhat jovial style that he is a simplistic and misunderstood mercenary. He appears to be eager to please and quite diligent in carrying out orders. He helped guard Vivenna while she met with Idrian slum lords and helped ransack Lemex's home in search of his valuables and plans.
After Parlin dies, Vivenna escapes into the streets. At first she attempts to awaken Tonk Fah's cloak but due to a bad command this does not work, and she instead uses Clod's lifeless command as a distraction. While starving on the streets, Vivenna sees that the first soup kitchen she goes to is being watched by Tonk Fah from across the street, and thus she avoids going to any of soup kitchens even while on the verge of death.
After Vivenna sneaks into the Court of the Gods in order to help free Vasher with the guidance of Nightblood, she comes across Denth torturing Vasher, with Tonk Fah idly sleeping with his back against the wall. Vivenna uses an Awakened rope to strangle Tonk Fah, which distracts Denth as he moves to help Tonk Fah escape the binding.
While Tonk Fah keeps an eye on her during the duel between Denth and Vasher, she realizes that he was still wearing the same cloak she had placed her BioChromatic Breath into. She uses this for a distraction against Denth.
Attributes and Abilities
Tonk Fah is a capable warrior and extremely strong. He took on five Lifeless when fleeing the raid and even incapacitated two as they were trying to kill Vivenna. Both of these abilities seem to be enhanced by his great size.
Tonk Fah temporarily pretended to be employed by and allies with Vivenna. In reality he was in the employ of Bluefingers.
”Don't make important people angry unless you're getting paid by people who are even more powerful.— Tonk Fah to Vivenna
