”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.
Appearance and Personality
Nothing is known of Durk's appearance. He is a fairly superstitious man, and wears a pair of 'lucky boots' into every battle. Durk believes that one should not hedge when living ones life; he should either commit to something fully or not at all.
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. He also gave Kaladin advice, telling him not to live his life hedging bets. Kaladin often recalls Durk and his advice later on in his life.
