Tansell was a member of a small mercenary group, consisting of himself, Shadrach, and the Vodyanoi Pengefinchess. The group was hired by Lemuel Pigeon to assist Isaac Dan der Grimnebulin and his group with tracking and killing several escaped Slake Moths.


Tansell is described as "taller than Shadrach but more slight". He wore smarter armour designed partially for aesthetics, "burnished brown, layers of stiff curboille, wax-boiled leather engraved with spiral designs".

He was armed with a smaller gun than Shadrach's thaumaturgically-enhanced weapon, and a slender rapier.
