Joshor is the head of King Taravangian's Silent Gatherers on Roshar.[1]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

Joshor seems to be a relatively high-ranking member of Taravangian's team; he oversees research that is thought to be very important to as a supplement to the Diagram.[2] He also exhibits direct knowledge of Taravangian's variable intelligence.[1]

He is knowledgeable regarding literature and mythology that would help him interpret the typical contents of Death Rattles, including keteks and other forms of Vorin poetry.[1]


As head of the Silent Gatherers, Joshor's primary focus was on collecting and analyzing Death Rattles.[1] He likely had oversight of other members of the Diagram that were working on the same task, such as Dova.

Taravangian attributed Death Rattles to the presence of Moelach. After Death Rattles suddenly became very rare near Kharbranth, he assumed that Moelach had moved westward.[2] Adrotagia later reported that Moelach was thought to have settled in the Horneater Peaks, and Joshor was sent to investigate.[3]
