Corporal Tarr was a marine in Sergeant Strings' 4th Squad in the Malaz 14th Army. He was apparently nondescript, with pale, stolid features and had placid, pallid eyes.[1] He rarely spoke and was slow to act without orders, attributes Strings felt beneficial in a corporal.[1]

He was known for his unyielding stance with a shield. It was said that once during training, Master Sergeant Braven Tooth had spent nearly two bells pounding on him with a mace but was unable to get past the shield. His ability to remain unbudged once he planted his feet led the Master Sergeant to give him the name, "Tarr".[1] Braven Tooth was convinced to place Tarr in the marines rather than the Heavy infantry based on Tarr's skill with a crossbow.[1]

Tarr was originally from Li Heng.[1]

In House of ChainsEdit

Tarr was part of Adjunct Tavore Paran's punitive expedition against the Army of the Apocalypse. Strings immediately promoted him to corporal upon their arrival in Aren.[1]

On the road to Raraku, he was the Trainer for Joyful Union, the 4th squad's entrant in the 9th Company Scorpion fight.[2]

In The BonehuntersEdit

Tarr was one of the group of soldiers who survived the Last Siege of Y'Ghatan by escaping through tunneling their way out from under the city.[3]

Interpretation of Corabb and Tarr by Slaine69

Tarr thought that Corabb was trying to prove himself and outdo Tarr whereas in reality, Corabb stuck close to the corporal to protect the man's weak side even though it meant disobeying Fiddler's order of guarding Bottle.[4]

In The Crippled GodEdit
