Brightlady Teshav Khal is an Alethi woman on Roshar. She serves in Highprince Dalinar Kholin's warcamp on the Shattered Plains.[2]

Appearance & Personality[edit]

Teshav has a pinched face, violet eyes, and black Alethi hair with a blonde streak, indicating some foreign blood in her family. She often wears her hair up, woven in a complex pattern.[2]

Teshav is often worried about various problems, resulting in a near perpetual expression of concern on her face. Teshav is extremely loyal to Dalinar; he is reasonably sure that he can trust Teshav completely.[2]

History[edit]

Teshav is married to General Khal, one of Dalinar's officers. Dalinar often utilizes her skill as a scribe and attendant. She often relays reports from Adolin about how his tasks are going, such as the investigation into Elhokar's girth strap.[2]

Teshav also investigates things herself on Dalinar's orders, such as the actions of other highprinces, banditry statistics, or the king's accounts. She will also draft missives and notices on Dalinar's orders.[2]

Dalinar has Teshav read various histories, seemingly so she can better understand the needs of the Alethkar.[2]

Teshav is also present as an advisor during Dalinar's first attempt to contact the other monarchs to unify Roshar against the voidbringers.[3]

Abilities[edit]

Teshav's abilities with reading and writing allow her to act as a scribe for both her husband and Dalinar.[2] She works closely with her husband, developing efficient patterns of patrol for Dalinar's soldiers fighting bandits.[2]
