Tuzik lives with his daughter Milenka in a small village in Geso. When the Rats travel through their village and patronizingly toss money at the villagers' feet, Tuzik is the only one who doesn't join the humiliating spectacle. He disdains the hypocrisy of his fellow villagers who had previously reviled the criminals' deeds only to burst into praise when they received a pittance.

In the afternoon, a unit of the Blacks from Fen Aspra on the trail of the Rats, arrive in the village. They ask the villagers for clues but the locals deny having ever seen them. If one of the soldiers had asked Tuzik, he would have told him the truth. But no-one asked him.

Tuzik is a minor character in Chrzest Ognia (Baptism of Fire).
