Vaceslv is a member of the Kholinar Wall Guard in Alethkar on Roshar.[1] He is a part of Noro's squad, Platoon Seven, Squad Two.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Kaladin describes Vaceslv as a friendly man; Alethi, but with obvious Thaylen heritage.[1] Vaceslv is of the tenth dahn, the lowest rank of lighteyes, and views 'middlers'—lighteyes who are of at least the eighth dahn but not quite highlords—as useless.[1] During a patrol, when Vaceslv's group passes Adolin, who was disguised as a middler, Vaceslv mocks middlers for their stereotypical desire for fancy clothing.[1]

Acquaintance with Kaladin[edit]

Vaceslv comes to know Kaladin as a fellow soldier in his squad. Vaceslv and another member named Alaward try multiple times to get Kaladin to play cards with them; Kaladin declines, thinking of his experiences with Sah and the other Voidbringers.[1]

After a raid by the Fused, Vaceslv is noted as having taken a gash to the chest that required assistance from surgeons,[1] but he is able to recover. Noro's squad, likely including Vaceslv, is present when Highmarshal Azure reveals how she supplies food for the army.[2]

Vaceslv follows Kaladin into Kholinar Palace with his squad and fights in the Battle of Kholinar Palace.[3] Most of his squadmates, including Noro and Beard, are killed in the fighting.[3] There are a few survivors, but Vaceslv is not mentioned as being one of them, and may have died in the battle.


Vaceslv is trained in using a side sword, truncheon, and small round shield while on patrol.[1] He is also trained in the use of a tower shield and pike in a defensive formation.[1]
