Appearance and Personality
Nothing is known of Avado's appearance. He is a clever man and a skilled enough merchant to anticipate potential changes in the trade markets due to the assassination of the king. He is also a kind man, friendly enough to inquire after strangers standing by the side of the road.
Shortly after King Gavilar Kholin's assassination by Szeth, Avado realized that the Alethi might mistreat foreigners. He decided to leave Alethkar for a friendlier trade environment in Jah Keved. Avado noticed Szeth standing by the side of the road, having retrieved his Oathstone from where the Parshendi had discarded it, and inquired about the Shin man. Szeth was then forced to explain his nature as Truthless and give the Oathstone to Avado. The two traveled together to Jah Keved, Avado unaware that he was harboring the king's assassin.
