Tam Dak was a member of the Nyueng Bao De Duang race encountered in Bleak Seasons. He became the Speaker of their pilgrimage after the death of Ky Dam.

Bleak Seasons[]

Tam Dak survived the horrible Siege of Dejagore, during which at least 1,200 out of 1,800 members of the Nyueng Bao pilgrimage – including Speaker Ky Dam and the priestess Hong Tray – were wiped out. Murgen from the Black Company was introduced to Tam Dak by Ky Gota, the daughter of the late Ky Dam. Murgen continued collaborating with the Nyueng Bao through Tam Dak during their evacuation from Dejagore in Bleak Seasons.

Tam Dak spoke the Taglian language better than Murgen. He is not mentioned again in the Annals after his brief exchange with Murgen, but he presumably accompanied the surviving Nyueng Bao back to their home in the swampy river delta on the western coast of the southern continent. A number of his people – swordsmen of the Path of the Sword like Uncle Doj and Thai Dei – remained with the Black Company as dedicated bodyguards for the Old Crew.
