Brightlord Tanalan is is the citylord of Rathalas. He has a nasal accent, common in the Rifters.[1]

He once played pawns with Dalinar and lost, paying the bet with a hundred glowing rubies each in a bottle of wine.[1]

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. [1]

After his death his son Tanalan took his title and continued the rebellion, culminating in the burning of Rathalas.[2]
