"Is everyone sitting comfortably? Good, then attend carefully."

Taliesin Axelrod Jaffe (born January 19, 1977 in Los Angeles, California) is a voice actor, voice director, script adapter and immortal chaos pyramid god, best known as Basil Hawkins in One Piece and Blanka in the newer Street Fighter entries. As a voice director, he works under New Generation Pictures, and his work on Hellsing has helped the dub become a cult classic.

Jaffe has a Twitter account. He is one of the nerdy-ass voice actors starring weekly in the Dungeons & Dragons campaign Critical Role.

He is definitely not a pyramid.
