Tuft is a beggar that lives in the slums of T'Telir on Nalthis.
Appearance and personality
Tuft is missing an eye and does not cover the empty socket with a patch. He is usually one of the first people to arrive on the street corners to beg in the morning. He is presumably Idrian, as Denth remarks that "everyone" who lives in the slums hails from Idris. He is gruff when interacting with Vivenna, saying he "don't owe nobody nothing" and calling Vivenna a "plant" for living as a beggar when she didn't have to.
Vivenna meets Tuft at some point when she is living on the streets as a Drab; he kicks her out of his usual begging spot three times. She later visits him seeking clues to the location of Nightblood. He is not cooperative until Vivenna gives him a valuable handkerchief. He then directs her to search a tenement near the Third Dock, where she eventually finds Nightblood with Chapps.
