Tarbolde was an author from the Canopus Planet who, in 1996, wrote "Nightingale Woman," which was widely regarded as one of the most passionate love sonnets for many centuries. Gary Mitchell recited an excerpt of "Nightingale Woman." (TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before")

His brilliance was encouraged by his encounter with Onaya who helped him in his career like she did with Catullus, John Keats and Tavor Kell. He died young, having his mental energy drained by Onaya. (DS9: "The Muse")
