Tieh is known as a priest who was originally tutored and raised by Cheiron, a tall gentleman with black hair who lived on a mountain with Tieh. Thus Tieh learnt many magical skills including magic which can pacify the spirits and spells which teleport characters to safety. A frail character, Tieh loses his strength after casting spells and has to rest in order to recover. He is very knowledgeable about the continent and can advise Lakushi and Boice when they are in trouble. Tieh wears various magical amulets and he is sometimes portrayed with a tall woman with blonde, curly hair who is either his sister or his fiancee (more information can be found in the novels). His name may derive from Tieh Kuan Yin, the Chinese goddess of mercy. (Source: Mutsumi Inomata artbooks.)
