Yeah, that was pretty gross. But Tanner is cool! :D
I won't say he was my favourite of the ten chiefs, that spot is probably reserved for Bearclaw, but he has always held a mystique for me. I like how gentle he is, that reminds me of Redlance. I found the story where he recognized Stormlight really sweet, how he waited for her to go on a quest for her soul name, resisted Recognition, for her.
