Former baker, and manager of a bakery in Baalb where Tarvu worked during puberty. The bakery was a very popular place for Baalbians, and the bread was known for miles around. Unfortunately Tellih was a very bad-tempered man (some now believe he may have been autistic) who beat Tarvu after Tarvu inadvertantly fell asleep and caused all the bread to burn. The day after the beating, Tellih drowned in a well, which he fell into. While he fell, his head was severed from his neck. It was said that when his head was pulled from the well, by his son, Bellih, his mouth uttered the words 'Oh Tarvu, forgive me.' Tellih's cruel mistreating of Tarvu is one of the reasons that devout Tarvuists do not eat bread.
