Telior is a part of the Budling family and one of the main characters to the stories. He's known to the Budlings as the Story-Teller, or the Telior. Hence his name. He was born knowing all the history of the Budlings and the Grublings. Which identified him early on as the wise and ancient Grand Telior. He can read the minds of insects and other small creatures and has the full ability to communicate with any species just by hearing them talk in their language once. It's a true gift of communication. He can see into the hearts of all living creatures good or bad even when he doesn't want to. This makes him very special and very dangerous to the growing rival Grubling population.
