2) Someone with a certain mystique or unfathamable nature.

tanyakaye can be written capitalised 'Tanyakaye' or non-capitalised 'tanyakaye.' Both of these are correct in any context (with the obvious exception of the start of a sentence.) Watch out for the Rogue spelling which omits the 'e' (tanyakay.) This is incorrect and completely unrelated.
