“There is, of course, a price to pay for me to retrieve this particular scroll for you,” the strange creature rasped in a tinny, almost mechanical voice.
“One hundred gold pieces?” Chalk asked.
A cold buzzing laughter filled the small room. Chalk cocked an eyebrow at the odd thing that sat casually before him.
“Two hundred?” the wizard asked.
“Now you are speaking my language,” the creature trilled.
“How do I deliver the coins?” Chalk inquired.
“I will send someone by, when I have secured the scroll,” the odd thing whistled. “Sit tight until then.”
Chalk was a bit perturbed, but tried not to show it, the oddly, almost flat creature chuckled.
“So emotional, you creatures of the third dimension,” it said.
Chalk got up to show the thing to the door.
“Never mind, the window is open a crack, I can use that as an egress,” the tangent man said and he got up, his thin, wiry frame seemed to wobble almost as the creature strolled to a nearby window. With a strange grin the thing turned and smiled at Chalk, then leaped through the thin space between the barely opened window and its frame.

The race known as the tangeenirs are thought to be from another dimension of perhaps some plane of existence that has bizarre laws of both geometry and physics. Tangeenirs, also know as the Tangent People, are a race of mostly 2-dimensional beings, humanoid, but apparently composed of a strange material that resembles wiry neon with many baroque arabesques that curl and writhe. The tangeenirs are very stoic, barely betraying any emotion and not getting the gist of most jokes. These strange creatures are very intelligent and use their ability to become basically flat to angle their way into very small spaces (any space as small as 1” in diameter will allow access to a tangeenir). To this end the Tangeenirs are consummate infiltrators, thieves and watchers, although their neutrality often keeps them from dabbling in assassination. Shrewd bargainers, the Tangent People offer their services to the highest bidder, but always keep their word and do their best to follow through on a particular contract. In combat these creatures always attack with their hands and elbows, causing nasty cuts with their ornamental bodies.
