Taba is an impulsive Borellian Nomen youth. Taba almost destroys the Nomen's hunt for the "jackal, Captain Dmitri."
Taba is first forgiven by his elder, Maga, who excuses the Nomen's actions as the result of excitement and drink. However, when Taba comments that the Warriors are insulting him, Maga has him disowned and would exact extreme punishment that apparently has a low survival rate (TOS: "The Man with Nine Lives").
Taba apparently could not yet be stricken from the "Roster of the Nomen," due to Maga's inability to contact other Nomen.
Taba rejoins Maga, suggesting that they either accept him fully or in some form as to prove himself, and evidently succeeds. He escapes with his brethren and Eastern Alliance forces (TOS: "Baltar's Escape").
- In a scene that found itself on the cutting room floor from "Baltar's Escape", Taba promised never to fail his elder again and redeemed himself.
