The "new kid" is an unidentified sailor who joined the crew of the Wind's Pleasure in Tanat 1173 when it stopped in Amydlatn in eastern Roshar. He was hired by Captain Tozbek as an extra deckhand to make sure the ship was not undermanned on the trip to New Natanan.[1]

He is six feet tall with a blunt face and a hulking frame, and he is extremely strong. Yalb calls him "new kid" even though he is at least five years Yalb's senior. Yalb tries to engage with him, telling him that the rest of the crew will like him if he does his dishwashing duties. However, he does not speak much, and Yalb thinks he is simpleminded.[1]

He was presumably hired by Tyn and the Ghostbloods and planted on the ship.[1][2] He participated in the mutiny against Tozbek, including the execution of several crew members and the attempted assassination of Jasnah Kholin. Shallan evaded him and some other thugs using Lightweaving.[3] It is unclear if he survived the burning and sinking of the Wind's Pleasure.
