Tao is Kurt Whitcomb's best friend. They met while they were both fairly young, and became fast friends. Tao became a chef because of his love for the taste of his mothers cooking; he wanted to be able to share that taste with his friends. Tao is an extremely great cook, and now provides a variety of food for the residents of Pithodi.
Tao was working as a chef in Jacinto when he recieved a letter from Kurt, asking how Tao was doing, among other things. Embedded in the letter were directions to Pithodi. Tao prepared to leave almost immediately, believing that the Marauders Kurt spoke of would provide better protection than the CoG. Tao left Jacinto at night, 2 days later, with supplies for the trip, and a fully loaded Gnasher Shotgun, which he keeps behind his bar counter. Tao made it to Pithodi within a few weeks, meeting up with Paul at the halfway point, like Kurt had said in the letter.
Since arriving at Pithodi, Tao was put in charge of the Cafeteria, which he spent a few weeks remodeling with Tom and Ross. There are currently 3 working stove/ovens in the kitchen, one of which is Tao's personal stove, which he refuses to let anyone use other than himself. Tao stays in the attic above the kitchen, where he has a bed, dresser, and desk, along with a large amount of food storage, which include various spices, kryll meat, and various other kinds of herbs, meats, and plants.
- Tao's name is pronounced "T-ow", not "Tay-oh".
