Lin Davar is a lighteyed Veden on Roshar.

He sired Balat, Wikim, Jushu, Shallan, and the late Helaran. He was first married to Shallan's mother, but after her death he remarried to Malise Gevelmar. It was around this time that he became a more violent and volitaile person, especially with his family.

From notes and maps found after his death and from letters he was receiving Balat surmised that his father was making a play for the title of high prince, and was supported by some powerful men, namely the Ghostbloods.[2]

Shallan believes he might have been a member of the Ghostbloods.

Near the end of The Way of Kings, Shallan admits to having killed her father after discovering that he had murdered his second wife, Malise Gevelmar.

He was somehow influenced by Odium.[3]

He owned a collection of maps which his children could not understand.[4]
