Tahir is introduced to Mare Barrow, along with his brother Rash, when she arrives on Tuck Island after the Corros Prison raid. Rash and Tahir tell Mare that they have traveled from the Free Republic of Montfort. They give her a brief history of their country, telling her how Montfort has been in hiding for twenty years, but that they are ready to fight against Red oppression and the killing of newbloods. They tell Mare that they are on Tuck as ambassadors to form an alliance with the Scarlet Guard and to offer sanctuary to the newbloods of Norta.
Tahir is at the Piedmont base supporting communications between groups.
Tahir and his brothers are identical triplets with dark brown skin, black hair, mud-brown eyes, and a well manicured beard. Like his brothers, he has a scar on his face, his being on his left cheek, to tell them apart. The scars were done by Silver lord long ago.
His Montfort uniform is thick, faded green with black detailing. There are badges on the front of the uniform, a white circle with a dark green triangle inside.
Tahir has the mutation that grants him a Silver-like ability despite having Red blood. His ability gives him a mental link with his brothers, Ibarem and Rash. Their ability does not yet have a name.
