Don't hedge bets with your life, Kaladin. Don't put in a chip when you have a pocket full of marks. Bet them all or leave the table.
—Durk's advice to Kaladin[1]

Durk is a Rosharan--probably serving in Brightlord Meridas Amaram's army--and likely one of Kaladin's mentor figures or friends prior to his arrival on the Shattered Plains.[1]


It is unknown when Durk and Kaladin met. At some point before Kaladin was enslaved, Durk told Kaladin that he was a natural born soldier and an artist with the spear.[2] He also gave Kaladin advice, telling him not to live his life hedging bets.[1] Kaladin often recalls Durk and his advice later on in his life.[1][3]

Personality and Appearance[edit]

Nothing is known of Durk's appearance. He is a fairly superstitious man, and wears a pair of 'lucky boots' into every battle.[3] Durk believes that one should not hedge when living ones life; he should either commit to something fully or not at all.[1]
