Tachoma Dhaume (otherwise known as Tuk) is a music-loving barbarian played by Abdul Aziz. He is a large man with an even larger personality. He invited Fat Billie to go adventuring, thinking he was not a little kid. Once he found out Fat Billie was an orphan, Tuck acted very protective of Fat Billie. Tuk’s strengths are music and strength.
Tuk never cries although he does often get things in his eyes or water in his face.
Tuk was abandoned as a baby but then raised by a used cart dealer, Bruce Spruce, in the city of Makal. Bruce raised Tuk until he was four when Bruce died due to a freak cart accident. Tuk eventually was run out of Makal. Afterwards, he roamed the world doing various jobs, including being in a band where he played the bass.
Tuk is described in the first episode, Profits and Schlass, by Abdul: "I"m tan of skin and large of thigh, I'm bald of head -by choice- I'm wearing a leather loin guard, I have an ax strapped across my back, I'm very large... I'm 7 feet tall. I'm a muscular 7 foot. I'm in a bulk phase right now." He has an amulet that he was found with as a baby containing a picture of his mother and a horse.
Tuk is seven feet tall and between 350-700 pounds, depending on what mood his actor is in at any specific point in time.
Tuk's voice changes between late-season one and season two. This was due the voice "actor", Abdul Aziz, being diagnosed with Baby Rabbit Vocal Cord Syndrome (BRCVS). Although as yet uncategorised by the World Health Organisation, this condition is thought be endemic in certain societal classes including stand-up comedians, the poor bastards who have to clear the drinks at pool bars, and shit stand-up comedians.
