Tallis was born in Goldpaw Marsh to Betty and Sam Hellcat, the most normal, average mom and dad you'd ever want to meet. The Hellcats were good neighbors, always willing to lend a helping hand, always happily paying their taxes and taking good care of their home and garden. Many days, Betty could be found in the kitchen, wearing an apron and baking cookies or cake. Betty and Sam sent Tallis to good schools, and late in life, to special instructors to teach Tallis the art of being a Ranger. Betty and Sam are very proud of their little Tallis!
