Be aware that in its current state, it does not include this additional content yet.

Derethil was a western king on Roshar,[1] who ruled during the Desolations He had fair skin and light eyes. He fought the Voidbringers alongside the Heralds and Knights Radiant.

After the Desolation, he commissioned the ship Wandersail and sailed westward, seeking the origin of the Voidbringers. He set off into a highstorm, and after sailing sometime through the storm, they found themselves crashed on an island in an archipelago surrounding a whirlpool. The island's people called themselves the Uvara, the People of the Great Abyss. They nursed the survivors from the Wandersail back to health. Derethil discovered that the Uvaran emperor was dead, which caused chaos and rioting among the Uvarans because they had to take responsibility for the brutal murders that they committed in the name of a man long dead. They escaped on the Wandersail with Nafti, the crew's guide and caretaker.
