Appearance and Personality
He is short and dresses in a the traditional style of a Terris steward, with a shaved head and tinningdar robes of bright yellow and orange. He is well-versed in Terris tradition and has the typical personality of a steward; he is peaceable, candid, and turns any conversation into a lesson. He appears to be one of the more prominent teachers in the Village; Vwafendal mentions that he provides reports on Asinthew's progress, and Asinthew later worries that he has disappointed Tellingdwar.
A fifteen year old student named Asinthew, who was also known as Waxillium Ladrian, asked him about past violence in the Village. Tellingdwar told him about a murder that happened fifteen years prior, when a Terrisman had killed his wife with a gun of unknown origin. Tellingdwar knew the couple personally. He told Wax that Terris were no better than other men.
- The name originated in a Mistborn Adventure Game session that Brandon played at a convention. A fan dressed as a steward was given the name Tellingdwar, and Brandon later used the name in Bands of Mourning - also making the character short in stature in honor of the fan.
