Traiben is a Lossandin sand master on the Dayside of Taldain.


He entered the Diem at the same time as Kenton and remains Kenton's best friend even though he is promoted to the highest rank of Mastrell while Kenton remains an Acolent. Traiben generally supports Kenton, although he is skeptical of Kenton's decision to undergo the Mastrell's Path. When Kenton succeeds, he encourages Kenton to attend the Advancement ceremony. During the ceremony, a large band of Kerztians launch a surprise attack. Traiben is killed while defending himself, mysteriously Overmastering within minutes, when he should be able to use his powers for much longer.
