|Portrayed by||Tau Sciam|
Tannhaus is a YouTube user who made the nonfiction video series "A Thelemite Speaks" in response to the growing speculation that Bree was a Thelemite. His series aims to debunk many of the popular misconceptions about Thelema.
In each episode of the series, Tannhaus deals with a specific aspect of Thelema, tries to explain the concepts in a basic and straight-forward manner, and relates it to a Thelemite's daily life and how it might come into play in every day circumstances.
In addition to the numbered videos of the series, there are many videos that, while technically not part of the "A Thelemite Speaks" series, deal with Thelema, Gnosticism, and every day issues from a Thelemic point of view.
All of the videos, whether "A Thelemite Speaks" or otherwise, are geared towards presenting Thelema to the masses. In general, Tannhaus tries to speak without using insider lingo unless he explains what the terms mean. This is designed so that anyone, from Thelemite to non-Thelemite, may watch the videos and understand the points he tries to get across.
The series may also be found on iTunes under "Tau Sciam".
