Little is known about Talhaearn's youth, though he must have studied with bards, probably informally, and was able to pick up much of the lore and techniques of that class.
As his training was not a part of British culture, he took longer to mature. However, his undeniable skills and overwhelming love of the bardic craft allowed him to reintroduce classical storytelling to the British people. He spent most of his adulthood traveling throughout Britain telling stories and spreading the mystique of the bards with him.
Even within his own lifetime his singlehanded reintroduction of the bardic craft to the emerging kingships of Britain made him famous and widely respected. This fame spread beyond Britain, so that even Irishmen who came upon him recognized his stature. He was often addressed with the epithet "Tat-Aguen", father of inspiration.
Innovative and creative, Talhaearn had the will and force of character to renew the bardic caste in Britain. He never attached himself to a king, however. At first it was because he believed he had something to say, and later because he felt like he didn't belong with one.
