Dova is a scholar and ardent on Roshar, employed by King Taravangian to research the Death Rattles.
At some point, Dova discovered Taravangian's work on the Death Rattles on her own, and wanted to aid in their collection. Taravangian had to either induct her or assassinate her, so he allowed her admission to his group, although he had not expected to attract an ardent to his cause.
In late 1173, Dova reported a fall in the number of Death Rattles to Tavangian via spanreed, but was told to continue her work.
Following the Battle of Thaylen Field Taravangian confides in Dalinar that he believes her to be Battar.
