Tevit, one of my main characters, is a yellow mongoose. Here he is decked out in his people's traditional armor--a hardened snake scale jerkin, and gloveless gauntlets. Both his scimitar and kris were forged by his father, once the bladesmith to the Sultan of Nehantish himself, but lost his position due to Tevit's unnatural red eyes. Any deformity is cause for sucpisciov and exile.
Tevit is one of my favorite characters, and is one of the main characters in the novel
