All men and women are beastly, and when skinned, a beast in velvet is a beast for all to see.

Jacopo Tarradash, The Desolate Prisoner of Karak Kadrin [1]

Jacopo Tarradasch is revered by dramatic actors and playwrights as the greatest actor, stage director and playwright of The Empire. He was recently superseded by Detlef Sierck.

Very good actors are judged to be of "Tarradaschian" quality[2c]. However, according to Genevieve Dieudonné, who saw some of his plays, he was a much better writer than he was an actor or director; in her words, "a regional touring company today could better the original Altdorf productions of Tarradasch's masterpieces without breaking a sweat."[2e]

Anecdotes

One story tells how a young actor, seeking fame and fortune, gained an audience before Tarradash, who was much impressed by the young man's talents, but remarked that, if the young man really wanted to become a great actor, he must live life to the full and then return.

The young actor did so and returned, telling how he had lived and gained experience, fallen in love with a girl and that he was truly happy. Whereupon the old master replied that the man was now perfect... if only his love would leave him.[3]
