Adin is a darkeyed boy living in Urithiru on Roshar.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Adin is a thirteen-year-old darkeyed boy. He is very brave, risking his life in the fight to escape Urithiru. He hopes that his bravery will attract an honorspren and allow him to join the Windrunners. This belief caused him to glare at passing Regals during the occupation of Urithiru, though not when they were watching. He is relieved when he can walk without a limp after hurting his ankle, as he believes that a sign of weakness might scare off a potential radiant bond.


Adin was a resident of Urithiru during the True Desolation. He worked for his father, a potter named Alalan, though the bowls he made were often lopsided. Sometime before Raboniel's invasion of the tower, he fell down the stairs while pretending to be a Windrunner, after which Kaladin bandaged his ankle.[1] During the occupation of Urithiru, Kaladin saved his life with his Shardplate.[2]



Adin's father. When Alalan catches Adin glaring at the Regals, he warns him to keep his eyes down, lest he is caught and killed. Adin views his father as extremely brave for tending the fallen radiants directly beneath the gaze of the Fused.[2]


Adin respects and reveres Kaladin, viewing him with a sense of awe. He is embarrassed that he missed seeing Kaladin fight for the well node, an event that he napped through.[2]


Shar is a fellow resident of Urithiru which Adin doesn't particularly like. He thinks that she is bossy enough that you would think she was lighteyed. Her uncle is a Windrunner. When Adin catches her glaring at Regals he thinks that she is trying to attract her own honorspren.[2]
