Min of Tan Liang
Min of Tan Liang is a character in Torment: Tides of Numenera.
This priest is tall, thin, and dressed only in black. Narrow slashes of oil decorate his unlined skin like letters in an unknown tongue. His eyes are harried, but alive with intelligent humor. Min is the unofficial head of the Order in Sagus Cliffs. Technically, the Order here is not affiliated with the Amber Pope or the larger organization in the Steadfast, but they share the same ideals (veneration of intellect, understanding, and the numenera. This chapter of the Order was established over 300 years ago by a varjellan nano named Divitiacu (who was actually TCG) - a statue of Divitiacu is standing outside the Order of Truth.
Since then, the Order has been a fairly egalitarian organization in Sagus, with one of the Aeon Priests serving as nominal leader by the consent of his/her peers.For the past few years, Min has served in this role. As such, he handles all relations between the Order and the city government, and he maintains the machine (built by Divitiacu - but really TCG) that creates the city's levies.
Min specializes in mechanical numenera of all kinds and runs the Sagus branch of the Order of Truth. He is more of a leader than a scientist whenever he's not tending the Levy machine, exchanging the expertise of the Aeon Priests for support from the Slave Families. He happily accepts reasonable requests for weaponized numenera, deflects the insane ones, and ensures the guild operates on a day to day basis.
