Talatin was a Knight Radiant and member of the Order of Stonewards on Roshar. It is not known when exactly they lived, but it was prior to the Day of Recreance and the dissolution of most of the Radiant Orders.
Jasnah Kholin finds a quote that is attributed to Talatin during her research of ancient Rosharan texts and adds it to her notebook. The quote mentions fighting Voidbringers and warns against their ability to transform.
”They changed, even as we fought them. Like shadows they were, that can transform as the flame dances. Never underestimate them because of what you first see.
- Talatin is the only known member of the Order of Stonewards. The powers granted to that Order through Surgebinding have not been revealed.
- Talatin's name has similarities to the Herald Talenel, the patron of the Order of Stonewards who has been known by many names including Talat and Talenelat'Elin. However, naming children after Heralds is common on Roshar and Nale believes that he was the only Herald to join his own Order. If both Nale and Jasnah have accurate information, this precludes Talatin from being an incarnation or alias of Talenel.
