Dalinar's father was an Alethi brightlord. He died at an unknown point prior to the War of Reckoning.[1]

Very little is known about him. His branch of House Kholin was one of the poorer, and couldn't afford monasteries or practice guards. His place of residence is unspecified, but it wasn't Kholinar.[2] In his youth, he participated in a war of some sort.[1] His wife -- Dalinar and Gavilar's mother -- died when the two boys were still children.[3] When Dalinar became old enough to learn swordfighting, his father hired Harth, a swordsman from two towns over, to teach him.[2]

In his old age, brightlord Kholin suffered from delusions where he thought he was back in the numerous battles of his youth. It's uncertain when he passed away, but it was likely within Adolin's lifetime.[1]
