Balash "Bloody Blade" Tigran was a male searat. He was of a tall, lanky build with dark grey fur and gold eyes. He lost his right eye in a battle with a gannet. He still wears the silks of a corsair and a gold hoop in his left ear. His preferred weapons are a dirk and his cutlass.

Not much of his history is known, but it is known he grew up in a small port town and hired aboard the first ship that would take him when he was fifteen. His temperament is ruthless and cunning, with an uncanny ability to sense whether a beast is lying or hiding something or not. He has proved invaluable upon many occasions in the employ of Vilaya, the Sable Quean.
