Shob is one of Shallan's men.[1][2] He is constantly saying that he has come down with something, saying to Shallan that he is dying, and then later tells Veil that he is coming down with something. He seems to exaggerate this, as he shows a so-called rash on his arm, when the arm is perfectly normal.[1][2]

He speaks in what appears to be a Bav accent,[fn 1] though some sentences come out in a neutral Alethi voice.[2]

At some point in his life, Shob was in Sadeas' army on the Shattered Plains, but eventually decided to desert the army.[5] After deserting, he joined a band of other deserters lead by Vathah that roamed the Frostlands stealing food from travelers and trying to stay alive and forget their pasts.[6][7] In late 1173, the group intended to attack Tvlakv and Macob's caravans, but Shallan Davar intervened and convinced them to instead defend the caravans against another group of bandits.[6]

Notes[edit]

Footnotes
  1. His pattern of speech is similar to Took's, and matches Tyn's imitation of a Bav accent.[3][4]
