Jochi is the pen name of a scholar from Thaylen City on Roshar.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Jochi is known to the world as a female philosopher, but in reality he is a potbellied baker in his sixties who runs a pastry shop in Thaylen City. Neither his true name nor the motivation for his anonymity have been revealed. He has a jocular personality, but can also be solemn.[1]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

Jochi is a Veristitalian and a friend of Jasnah Kholin and Ethid. Jasnah notes that Jochi is extremely intelligent; he is one of the few people that is her equal as a historical scholar.[1][2]


It is not clear how long Jochi has known Ethid and Jasnah, but the three of them studied under the same master and seem to have a close relationship. They stay in regular contact using spanreeds, using passcodes to identify themselves.[1]

After arriving in Urithiru, Jasnah contacted both Jochi and Ethid through intermediaries at a spanreed hub in Tashikk. It was the first time that they had heard from her after her disappearance during the sinking of the Wind's Pleasure, as she lost her spanreeds at the time. Jochi was happy to hear from Jasnah and expressed a desire to visit Urithiru, although he did not want to risk revealing his true identity. The three colleagues discussed current events; Jochi was skeptical of Ethid's claim that Nale was still alive and active on Roshar. Jochi mentioned a sighting of Axies the Collector and reported on the state of Thaylenah, including the fact that singers had stolen most of their fleet. He also gave Jasnah a description of the unnamed spren of the Order of Truthwatchers.[1] This later became relevant at the Battle of Thaylen Field when Jasnah saw Glys and knew that something was wrong with his appearance.[3]

Upon meeting some of the Heralds in person, Jasnah noted that her many historical debates with Jochi had been rendered irrelevant since the Heralds had actually lived through the entire known history of Roshar.[2]
