This article's title is uncanonical and a fan created one, because an official term or name has not been made yet.
Brightlord Tanalan is is the citylord of Rathalas. He has a nasal accent, common in the Rifters.
He once played pawns with Dalinar and lost, paying the bet with a hundred glowing rubies each in a bottle of wine.
When Gavilar attacked the rift, Tanalan was in possession of the shardblade Oathbringer. He tried to duel Dalinar, but was quickly brought down by a surprise charge. When Tanalan's soldiers tried to kill Dalinar, he brought down the platform they were fighting on, mortally wounding Tanalan in the process. He was then brought to a secret hideout with his wife and child, but Dalinar followed him and ended him there, taking his shardblade but sparing his son. 
After his death his son Tanalan took his title and continued the rebellion, culminating in the burning of Rathalas.
