Turash is a Fused on Roshar.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

The singer body that Turash uses during the Battle of Thaylen Field is "hulking", with large carapace armor; Odium says that the new body suits him.[1] His eyes glow red.[1]

Venli notes that Turash is sane and relatively reasonable, unlike many of the Fused; Odium also mentions that his mind has held firm.[1] He is calm but very intense, and speaks often of Passion.[1] He addresses modern singers who do not have combat training in the Rhythm of Derision,[1] indicating that he holds firm to ancient traditions. Although he serves Odium, he may have some reservations about his directives.[2]

He has some knowledge of military strategy, as he and Odium discuss the value of invading Thaylen City.[1]

History[edit]

After Venli arrives in Thaylen City, Turash tells her to accompany him to the battlefield and hands her a sword.[1] Venli is in envoyform and Turash needs her to translate as he addresses assembled listeners who do not speak his ancient language.[1] Unlike the listeners in Alethkar, those local to Thaylenah are apprehensive about attacking the land they consider their home and they do not bear ill will towards their former human masters.[1] Turash does not understand their lack of Passion, and exhorts them to seek vengeance and become Regals.[1]

Turash then meets with an avatar of Odium who calls him an "old friend", indicating that Turash is a Fused of some importance.[1] Turash expresses his concern about the apparent apathy of the listeners, and Odium informs him that they are only there to spectate; the army Odium will send into battle is primarily made up of humans led by Meridas Amaram.[1][2] Turash is surprised to learn that Voidspren are able to bond humans under the influence of Nergaoul's Thrill.[1] Turash is apprehensive about Odium's order to follow a human in combat, causing Odium to strongly rebuke him with a threat to kill him permanently.[2] Turash is presumably among a group of Fused that is mentioned to be present alongside Odium and Venli when Dalinar Kholin swears the Third Ideal of the Bondsmiths.[3]
