Brightlord Havar is an officer in Highprince Dalinar Kholin's army on the Shattered Plains of Roshar.[2]

Personality and Appearance[edit]

Havar wears a beard,[2] and is a good soldier who does his job well.[1]


Havar accompanies Dalinar to a firemoss den the night Adolin is born. He buys a round of drinks and sits next to Bashin.[3][expand]

Havar served as the commander of the rearguard in the Kholin army,[2] and was good friends with both Dalinar and Adolin Kholin.[1] In 1173, Havar fought in the Battle of the Tower, where the Kholin army was betrayed by Highprince Torol Sadeas.[2] Havar took a serious gut wound during the fighting. He survived long enough to be rescued by Bridge Four, but died shortly thereafter, coughing up blood. Havar was one of around six thousand Kholin casualties in the fighting, along with Perethom, Ilamar.[1] Kaladin promoted Nacomb Gaval to temporarily replace Havar for the purpose of expeditiously evacuating the Tower.[2] Havar's death, along with the others served as one of the sources of Adolin's hatred for Sadeas.[1]
