|Died||Tortured by Dilaf|
Prior to his Shaod he worked on Aor Plantation. After about eight months he is brought to Hrathen to be questioned so he can learn about Elantris. After this he is taken by Dilaf, who cuts his face deeply several times, leading to Diren losing his sanity.
He is nearly executed by Dilaf during a congregation, which is stopped by Hrathen to ensure that the crowd does not enter an uncontrollable zealous fervor. Diren is then put out of his misery by Hrathen personally.
