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 an accent reminiscent of our world's cockney, though some sentences come out in normal common/vorin. Specifically, he seems to say"Oi" in place of I, except after being questioned about "dem orphans,": his next sentence comes out without accent at all. It seems more likely that the accent is forced by the character than that this is a transcription error on the part of the author/editor. [2]

At some point in his life, Shob was in Sadeas' army on the Shattered Plains, but eventually decided to desert the army.[3] Glurv joined a band of deserters in the Frostlands which were lead by Vathah.[4] He was convinced to help defend Macob's caravan by Brightness Shallan Davar. This group roamed around stealing mostly food from travelers "just trying to stay alive and forget." according to Vathah.}[5]
