Tian Jaffords is the thirty three year-old husband to Zalia Jaffords. Unlike the other small farmers in Calla Bryn Sturgis, Tian can read, write and work with numbers. He is also the one to call the men of the Calla to meet at the town gathering so they can save their children from the Wolves. While all the Calla Bryn Sturgis' inhabitants were resigned with the idea of giving up and letting the Wolves take their children, Tian was strongly against this, decided to protect his family. After Donald Callahan supported him in the council, the vast majority of the people agreed with him.
