This is a detailed list of characters and their individual stories found in Garth Nix's The Seventh Tower book series.A thirteen-year-old Chosen boy residing in the Orange level of the castle, Tal is described as having scraggly hair and shorter than most boys his age. During the beginning of the series, he is said to form a curl when he smiles. Tal is bashful about this, believing it makes him look slow. His father is Rerem, guardian of the Orange Keystone; his mother is Graile; his little brother and sister are Gref and Kusi respectively. His aunts, Lallek and Korrek, both hate him rather exceptionally. He has an eccentric great-uncle named Ebbitt whom he is fond of and usually plays games of Beastmaker with.
At some point in time, Tal's mother is poisoned, presumably by Sharrakor, with water spider venom. At that time however, it was still believed by the family to be a mysterious illness, and they believe they would find a cure in the spirit world Aenir, where the Chosen all visit during an appointed time called the Day of Ascension.
As they wait eagerly for this, Tal's father suddenly disappears.
Tal at the time has yet no clue as to what nature his father's work was, but was told he was appointed a special mission from the Empress. With his father missing, Tal's family have no way of entering Aenir on the Day of Ascension. A primary Sunstone is required, and seeing the their mother's has weakened and faded as her illness grew worse, the family was relying much on their father's. Tal attempts several ways to obtain a new primary Sunstone. One of them was asking for one from his aunts, who carry multiple Sunstones on their person. They wickedly refuse, but it was upon asking them that Tal met a stranger who seemed to equal his aunts' dislike towards him. This puzzles Tal, making him wonder why a complete stranger would hate him.
