Appearance and Personality
Jor looks like a typical Alethi, with very short, black hair and dark skin. He is young and has some chin stubble. He smiles and laughs constantly and enjoys telling stories, coming across as affable. Veil finds him arrogant and slightly misogynistic, but he is also good-natured and honorable.
Jor presumably lived in a warcamp on the Shattered Plains before the Battle of Narak and was among the many evacuees to Urithiru. He worked as a bouncer in a low-end bar that Shallan selected as a good place to practice using her Veil persona. He watched and laughed as Veil struggled to drink some strong alcohol, then sat next to her and flirted with her. When he realized that Veil was quickly getting drunk, he warned her that the area could be dangerous and offered to call a palanquin to take her home. Veil managed to extract some information from Jor about the rumored location of a murder before sobering up instantly through the use of Stormlight. Jor and the bartender were left very confused as Veil casually exited the bar.
Later, Jor worked as a bouncer in the Ten Rings section of Urithiru's central market at Jez's Duty, a winehouse that Adolin frequented. Jor held a wedding party at the winehouse when he married Kryst, and Syl rode around on his shoulder as he greeted the attendees. He came over to the table where Adolin sat with Shallan and Kaladin to introduce Kryst, and Adolin gave the couple a wedding gift.
- Jor is a cameo for Jory Phillips, one of The Stormlight Archive's beta readers. He married between the releases of Oathbringer and Rhythm of War, inspiring Brandon to include Jor's wedding in the book.
