Appearance and Personality
Kaladin describes Alaward as a heavyset man. Although his eyes are light, Alaward is of the tenth dahn, the lowest rank of lighteyes. He views 'middlers', lighteyes who are above the eight dahn, but aren't quite highlords, as useless. During a patrol he insults Adolin, who was disguised as a middler, saying that middlers were "Useless for anything but giving bad orders and eating twice as much food as an honest man".
Aquaintance with Kaladin
Alaward, being a part of the same squad as Kaladin was recruited to, knew Kaladin as a fellow soldier. Alaward and another member named Vaceslv tried multiple times to get Kaladin to play cards with them, though Kaladin declined, thinking of his experiences with Sah and the other Voidbringers. Alaward is presumably there with Platoon Seven, Squad Two during the Fused raids. He is also probably present when Highmarshall Azure reveals how she supplies food for the army. Alaward, along with the rest of Noro's squad, follows Kaladin into Kholinar Palace and fights in the Battle of Kholinar. It is assumed that he dies, along with the other soldiers, in the fighting.
