Tomat is a city in the Sadeas princedom of Alethkar on Roshar.[1]


Tomat is located in northwestern Alethkar, near the intersection of the borders of Alethkar, Jah Keved, and Herdaz. It is situated at the southwestern point of the Sadeas princedom, just north of the Vamah princedom.[2] It lies on a large river that originates in the Sunmaker Mountains and defines portions of Jah Keved's borders with Alethkar and Herdaz before emptying into a Herdazian bay near the Reshi Isles.[1]


The Gap[edit]

Tomat has a city wall, but at the time of the True Desolation it had been broken for several generations, with the resulting gap becoming infamous among its citizens.[3]


Tomat was one of the cities that was occupied by singers during the invasion of Alethkar by Odium's forces that began in 1174. Although the city had a defensive wall, it had been broken by unknown means several generations before the True Desolation. The residents of the city offered little resistance to the invading army.[3]

In 1175, the coalition of monarchs sent scouts on reconnaissance missions throughout Alethkar. Kara observed the area that included Tomat, taking notes on singer troop placement and the condition of the buildings. She reported that the city was in good shape, likely owing to the fact that they had quickly surrendered. She also noted that the singers had started to repair the city wall.[3]

Notable Residents[edit]

Hesina had particular interest in reading Kara's notes on Tomat. She had a conversation with Lirin indicating that her father lived in the city and owned a business there. Hesina worried that her father's obstinate personality might have led him to resist the singers even if the rest of the town surrendered.[3]
