Tamaroth is a mysterious entity that appeared to Erin during the Winter Solstice together with two of his companions, offering her a gift in exchange for her soul.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

He has a beard and a face that make him resemble Abraham Lincoln, while his entire presence also suggests a timelessness and prominence that let Erin also compare him to a persona like Teddy Roosevelt. Tamaroth stood taller than any man that Erin had ever seen, making it seem as if he looked down upon everyone and everything. It is clear that the "standing tall" was figuratively speaking because his less noteworthy companion was actually the tallest in their group of three.[1]
