Appearance and Personality
Kaladin describes Vaceslv as a friendly man; Alethi, but with obvious Thaylen heritage. 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. 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.
Acquaintance with Kaladin
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.
After a raid by the Fused, Vaceslv is noted as having taken a gash to the chest that required assistance from surgeons, 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.
Vaceslv follows Kaladin into Kholinar Palace with his squad and fights in the Battle of Kholinar Palace. Most of his squadmates, including Noro and Beard, are killed in the fighting. There are a few survivors, but Vaceslv is not mentioned as being one of them, and may have died in the battle.
