Appearance & Personality
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.
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.
Attributes and Abilities
Teshav's abilities with reading and writing allow her to act as a scribe for both her husband and Dalinar. She works closely with her husband, developing efficient patterns of patrol for Dalinar's soldiers fighting bandits.
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.
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.
She was present in the command post at the top of the city during the battle of Thaylen City, and afterwards makes Shallan tea. Shallan notes that the tea is bitter and likely has something in it to keep Teshav on her feet, noting scribes always know the best tea for those type of purposes.
