Taurus is a literary character created by Robert E. Howard in his story ‘The Tower of the Elephant’, published by Weird Tales during the 1930s.

Biographical sketchEdit

Taurus is a Nemedian, known as a ‘Prince of Thieves’.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Taurus is described as “big-bellied and fat”, but this is misleading, as “his every movement betokened a subtle dynamic magnetism”, later adding that his “suppleness was amazing, considering his bulk”.

Traits and skillsEdit

Taurus is a famous thief, capable of incredible agility when compared to his apparently flabby bulk. He also has an array of unusual artefacts gleaned from exotic locations, such as black lotus powder from the jungles of Khitai, or his rope made from the hair of dead women stolen at midnight then soaked in upas tree wine.
