Other:
Tahl was born with what is referred to as weave blindness. He is unable to be around anyone casting elven weave magic without running the risk of going completely blind. His perceptions of the world are skewed because of this, and like his great great grandfather, he sees the world differently than those around him. He confuses taste and touch, sight and sound. In terran terms he was born with Synesthesia. Because of his perceptions he tends to wear gloves to avoid some rather unfortunate side effects. He doesn't mind seeing the world as he does in fact he doesn't know any better, but still he has his days.

Synesthesia (Greek, syn = together + aisthesis = perception) is the involuntary physical experience of a cross-modal association. That is, the stimulation of one sensory modality reliably causes a perception in one or more different senses. Its phenomenology clearly distinguishes it from metaphor, literary tropes, sound symbolism, and deliberate artistic contrivances that sometimes employ the term "synesthesia" to describe their multisensory joinings.


Because of synesthesia Tahl can sometimes see colours around people, this doesn't represent the person and it doesn't mean he's empathic on any level, the colours are arbitrary as well as any sensations he might get from a voice. Not only this it doesn't happen with all people all the time.
