Thal is a Tastigon god,[1] known only by the exclamation "Thal's balls!" It is used by Tastigons like Raffing,[2] one of Theocandi's lieutenants,[3] and Patches,[4] as well as Kencyr like Harn[5] and Jame.[6] From the Kencyr, it's clear that not just just Thal's followers use it. It's popularity is probably due to it rhyming.
