Jakamav is a lighteyes of the third dahn from Highprince Roion's camp[1] and one of his various landlords.[2]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Jakamav is sturdy Alethi man[1] with pale green eyes.[2]

Jakamav has an infectious laugh[2] and is Adolin's friend[1][2] though Adolin comes to doubt whether he has any real friends at all.[2] His reputation is more important to him then spending time with Adolin[2] and Jakamav is willing to betray Adolin for shards.[3][4]

He owns green painted[3] Shardplate and, lacking a Shardblade of his own, uses a large Shardbearer's war hammer (Shardhammer) in battle.[2]

Jakamav refused Zahel's offer to train him to fight off a spearman with a knife, laughing at the idea that a Shardbearer would ever fight knife to spear.[5]


He accompanied Inkima to a wine house in the Outer Market for a tasting with Adolin Kholin, Danlan Morakotha, Toral and Eshava. Inkima seemed quite taken with Jamakav, giggling at most of his comments, even the unfunny ones.[1] He was still seeing Inkima sometime later.[2]

Jakamav was part of Roion and Ruthar's plateau run which Adolin assisted with. Both men ended up climbing a cliff face during the battle. Afterwards he told Adolin that Eranniv had been making promises to Shardbearers so that they would refuse duels with Adolin. He also told Adolin it would be bad for his reputation to be seen with him.[2] He was present at the meeting of the Alethi highprinces where he accompanied Roion whilst wearing his Shardplate, as protection against a potential assassination attempt.[6]

Jakamav was one of the four Shardbearers who entered the duel against Adolin and was most likely promised a share of the spoils should Adolin have been defeated. When Adolin asked him why he was a part of this however he says nothing.[3] He was eventually forced to yield when Adolin wrestled him to the ground and Kaladin pressed a knife to an opening in his armor.[4]
