”The best and truest duty of a person is to add to the world. To create, and not destroy.
Appearance and Personality
Neturo-son-Vallano is a Shin man, and therefore is likely light-skinned and lacks an epicanthic fold. He believes the greatest service a man can do is to create, to add to the universe, and therefore was unhappy with being forced to kill, to subtract.
Attributes and Abilities
As the bearer of Ishar's Honorblade, Neturo-son-Vallano had access to the Blade itself, as well as the Surges of Tension and Adhesion. The Stormfather also believes that Ishar's current Bondsmith status is directly related to his possession of the Blade, implying that Neturo may have had access to the more esoteric, Bondsmith-specific uses of those Surges.
Neturo-son-Vallano worked as a shepherd on the coast of Shinovar during Szeth's youth. There were white cliffs near their home. Later, his family was given to the Honorblades, and Neturo was forced to learn how to kill. At some point, he became the bearer of Ishar's Honorblade, although it is unknown if this was the first of the Blades he bore.
Neturo kept Ishar's secrets, but planned to withhold his Blade from him, should Ishar come asking after it. However, Ishar claims that Neturo willingly gave up his Blade and welcomed Ishar for the chance to die. While the details are unclear, Neturo did in fact lose possession of the Honorblade and is now dead.
