Battar (Alethi pronounciation: [bəˈtɑɹ] bə-TAR[1]) is one of the ten Heralds of the Almighty on Roshar. She is the patron of the Order of Elsecallers. Taravangian believes that she currently resides in Kharbranth as an ardent under the assumed name of Dova.[2][3]


Dova approached Taravangian and warned him of a coming Desolation, which prompted him to seek out Szeth after King Gavilar's assassination.[3] She has since been assisting with the Diagram. Sometime prior to Taravangian's seizing of the throne of Jah Keved, she reported that the frequency of Death Rattles had been declining further, hinting at Moelach's movement.[2] She was later assigned with writing an anonymous essay revealing Dalinar and Elhokar's highking decision, to undermine Dalinar's authority along with the revelations presented in the translated Eila Stele.[4]
