—To Navani[1]

Benneh is an ardent on Roshar.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Brother Benneh resembled nothing so much as an eel who had put on robes and grown a pair of arms through sheer determination.

—Navani's observation of Benneh[1]

Benneh is an intelligent, sunny, and spry man. He has an unusually long neck, and the skin under his chin sags. As an ardent, he also has a bald head.[1]

History[edit]

Brother Benneh worked as the head scientist over atmospheric measurements and excitedly reported to Navani in 1175 that temperature and pressure outside of Urithiru rose instead of fell before the advent of highstorms. He also confirmed that the temperature up on the Cloudwalk was in fact warmer than down below in the fields. When Navani suggested that perhaps that was only to be expected at high elevations, he referenced a book detailing measurements from trade expeditions to the Horneaters that disproved such an idea.[1]
