”In fact, something occurs to me right now. I might have need of you, Bordin.
Appearance and Personality
Bordin accompanied a madman--actually the Herald Taln--from Kholinar to the Shattered Plains, and spent some of the trip in the company of Wit. Wit insulted his intelligence, and Bordin said the madman was a better companion than Wit.
On Dalinar's orders, he went drinking with some of Amaram's guards and sowed rumors of treasure that the madman claimed he had hidden in the area. After hiding Taln's Shardblade in a nearby cavern, he waited to see what Amaram would do.
He later accompanied Amaram to the cell in Dalinar's temple where Taln was being housed. He reinforced the rumor of a hidden cache of Blades while Amaram tried to interview Taln, and presumably then accompanied Amaram on his search for the cache. Because the Ghostbloods had gotten wind of the situation, Mraize sent Shallan to infiltrate the cell, and she happened to be there at the time when Bordin and Amaram arrived.
