His hero name is Tan Coul. His heroic ability is strength. His assistant hero-in-training is Hero.

Polly initially gives Tan Coul another, more quotidian identity: in between heroic events, he is Thomas Piper and runs an ironmonger's shop in Stow-on-the-Water, where he is bullied by his stingy sister Edna and her sulky son Leslie.

In Fire And Hemlock, Thomas Lynn is a cellist, recently divorced from Laurel, whom Polly befriends at Hunsdon House. He is tall and thin, with fair hair and grey eyes, and wears gold-rimmed glasses.

He lives in a flat in London, and drives a yellow (stickshift) car, license number TC 123; he is a truly terrible driver. He loves books (he cannot seem to stay out of used-book stores), and will not let people put books down open-faced. He is quiet and soft-spoken, but can be surprisingly strong-willed. As a boy, he went to Wilton College in Middleton; although he hated it, he seems to respect their music program. He knows a good deal about horses, and used to do a lot of photography, although he claims to have lost the knack. He also seems to enjoy writing stories.
