Talvār was a Dol and a Dockmaster at Laksha Isles.
Talvar is a male canine with a ratty, torn black tail. He's decorated with several sharp objects, wound into his fur. He is described as scruffy.
Talvar is somewhat less unsavory as most of the folk on Laksha Isles, as he shows some concern for some of it's residents when Yu Song appears with the royal lyon Lochan. He also gives back Yu Song's Salt when he tells them leave, as that is the fair thing to do.
Talvar does his job as the 'official' dockmaster of the Isle harbor, but when Yu Song brings a royal cat ashore, he is alarmed and fears retribution from the Endian Empire. He tells Yu Song and his crew they must leave, giving back their salt they payed to dock, but this puts Tai Yang in an ideal place to strike, which she does. She slashes his throat, then drowns him.
