Paladar is a highlord from Alethkar on Roshar. He is a relative of Highprince Loradar Vamah and rules Vamah princedom as regent.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Paladar is tall and bald.[1] He is lighteyed, and his title as highlord implies that he is of the third dahn. He is known to be greedy, corrupt, and notoriously harsh.[1]

History[edit]

Regent of Vamah Princedom[edit]

Paladar holds power over Vamah princedom as regent both during and immediately following the War of Reckoning, while Highprince Vamah is in the warcamps on the Shattered Plains.[1] He lives in Revolar, the largest city and seat of power in Vamah princedom.[2]

Revolar suffers under his leadership due to his greed. Many darkeyes who attempt to travel to the city are driven away, despite holding the right of travel.[1] Moash, who hails from Kholinar, frequently visits Revolar with caravans and notes that Paladar's corrupt policies are well-known.[1]

True Desolation[edit]

Paladar is among the human population that is enslaved after the singers capture Revolar in 1174. However, Paladar is able to exert his influence over fellow captives and set himself up as a leader, avoiding labor while hoarding food and resources for himself and other favored lighteyes. He is particularly interested in recruiting soldiers from amongst the captives, and he also holds sway over a number of darkeyed guards and merchants.[1] Caravaneers captured by the singers also work under Paladar's directives, despite their past dislike for him.[1] Paladar's goal is to restore his place within the city, and he seems to hold out hope that the Alethi armies will recapture Revolar.[1]

Old Guff brings Moash to Paladar per a standing order to find soldiers; however, when Moash appears to exhibit mental problems, Paladar tells Ked to have Guff beaten for incompetence.[1]

Trivia[edit]

  • Paladar's specific familial relationship to Vamah is unclear, but he is likely also related to Vamah's cousin, Kalanor.[3]
