Appearance and Personality
Leyten was an apprentice armorer prior to being a bridgeman. The armor of a lighteyes broke, allowing an arrow to hit their shoulder, and the blame fell on Leyten. As a result, he was demoted to work on the bridge crews.
On the first bridge run after Kaladin's promotion to bridgeleader, Leyten falls from an arrow wound in his shoulder and the opposite arm. Another arrow grazed his stomach, and his left leg was trampled by a horse. Teft and Rock carry Leyten to Kaladin, who is able to treat his wounds. Leyten falls unconscious and Kaladin fears he might not make it. However, Kaladin cauterizes both the arm and leg wounds, likely leaving scars in Leyten's skin but saving the man's life. The crew brings him back to the barracks by tying him to the top of their bridge while they run and then quickly untying him before the army crosses the bridge. Kaladin notes that Leyten will always have a limp from his injuries, although Leyten is never thereafter described as walking with a limp.
Leyten was in charge of crafting the Parshendi carapace onto the bridgemen vests and caps. He insisted on ornamenting the helms with ridges and cuts, as well as cutting the breastplates in toothlike patterns.
After the Battle of the Tower, Leyten joins Dalinar's camp along with the rest of the bridgemen, taking turns guarding various members of the Kholin family. He practices the spear with Natam and a few others in the morning. After Kaladin gives Shen a spear, the parshman joins Leyten in their training. Leyten helps teach Renarin how to carry a bridge. He was guarding Dalinar when Rlain surrendered himself to the Alethi. He survives through the Everstorm and the battle prior to it.
