Vedekar Perel is a lighteyed Alethi officer in the Sebarial army on Roshar.[1] He moves to Urithiru after the Battle of Narak and is murdered by Re-Shephir.[2]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

He has bulbous features.[3] His build is similar to that of Torol Sadeas,[3] who is described as "stout".[4]

He is quiet and well-liked.[5] Although he is in the military, he is known as an administrator and not a soldier.[5] He is not a particularly prominent member of the Sebarial army, as he is not known to either Shallan or Adolin before he is murdered.[1]


Perel presumably lived at the Shattered Plains during the War of Reckoning, as he was present in Urithiru shortly after the Oathgate at Stormseat was activated.

Not long after the move to Urithiru, his body was discovered by a scouting party that included several members of Bridge Four. He was found in a bathing chamber in a remote part of the second level of Urithiru,[1] close to where the corpse of Torol Sadeas had been found a few days earlier.[5] Perel's corpse was found with a bloodied face, positioned in the exact same way that Sadeas was found. He was stabbed through the eye, also paralleling Sadeas, and his clothing was disheveled and showed signs of a struggle. Several people (including Navani and Shallan) assumed that the same person killed both men.[1][5]

In the absence of Niter and Malan, Dalinar assigned Adolin to oversee the investigation of the murders.[1] Adolin enlisted May Aladar and others to interview Perel's family and friends,[6] but was unable to find any connection between the two victims.[5] After a series of other copycat murders, Shallan reviewed her sketches and came to the realization that a twisted spren killed Perel because of his physical resemblance to Sadeas; this led to a confrontation between Shallan and the Unmade known as Re-Shephir after Shallan realized that Re-Shephir had been trying to gain a better understanding of human behavior by mimicking their violence.[3][7]
