Kmakl is Queen Fen's husband and the prince consort of Thaylenah on Roshar.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

He is aging, and has drooping mustaches that match his long Thaylen eyebrows.[1] He wears a vest and a cap.[1] He is not a Shardbearer and does not carry a sword; Dalinar notes that this would be unusual for someone of Kmakl's rank in Alethkar.[2] He is often by the queen's side and sometimes acts as an informal advisor,[3] but he does not interfere with her duties as monarch.[2] He is optimistic[4] and courageous.[5]

History[edit]

Kmakl is present when Dalinar Kholin arrives in Thaylen City to assess the damage from the Everstorm.[2] Kmakl is attended by several scribes and instructs them to write down important bits of Fen's conversation with Dalinar for the official record.[2]

He and Fen attend a meeting of Dalinar's coalition in Urithiru, and Kdralk seems satisfied with Navani's suggestion that the Thaylens oversee trade and supplies.[3]

As the Battle of Thaylen Field unfolds, Kmakl, Fen, and Navani Kholin survey the battlefield from the city walls.[4] Kmakl believes that the coalition may successfully defend the city until a thunderclast appears nearby, shaking the ground and severely damaging the wall.[4] Kmakl suffers a cut to his scalp, but he and Fen are able to escape down a staircase to a guard chamber.[6] However, they are seized by soldiers from House Sadeas under the influence of the Thrill.[7] They are bound and gagged[7] and the soldiers move to kill Kmakl, since Amaram will only care about the queens.[5] Kmakl tries to face his death with dignity, but the soldiers continue to manhandle him until Navani is able to incapacitate them with her painrial.[5]

Kmakl and Fen subsequently witness Nergaoul's appearance on the battlefield,[5] Dalinar summoning Honor's Perpendicularity,[8] Jasnah Soulcasting a new section of one of the city's walls,[8] and his son Kdralk attempting to recover a Shardblade.[8] Kmakl thinks the new wall will hold off Odium's forces until he sees the sheer number of Singers that are prepared to attack, driven by the Thrill.[8]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

By Kelek, storms, and Passions alike, what is that?
—Kmakl, seeing the red mist of Nergaoul[5]

Like many Thaylens, Kmakl seems to have an affinity for both Vorinism and the Passions.[5]
