Timett is a red hand, a type of war chief, of the Burned Men, one of the most-feared Vale clans of the Mountains of the Moon. He is commonly known as Timett son of Timett, after his father,[2] and is also called Timett One-Eye.[3]

Timett is a tall, fierce young man with a burned out left eye, which has been left an empty pit.[4] He is not yet twenty years of age.[2]

Timett enjoys games like dice[4] and tiles.[5]

History

During the rite of manhood for his clan, Timett burned one of his eyes out of its socket with a hot knife. Because the typical sacrifice for the rite is a nipple or finger, the impressed clan elders immediately named him a red hand of the tribe. Timett was young for this position, but he inspired fear even among his fellow clansmen.[2]
