Vedel (Alethi pronounciation: [vəˈdɛl] və-DEL[1]), also known as Vedeledev in Vorinism, is one of the ten Heralds of the Almighty on Roshar, and the patron Herald of the Order of Edgedancers[citation needed]. Like the other Heralds, Vedel protected mankind during the Cycle of Desolations. According to Talenel she would train surgeons in anticipation of the incoming Desolation.[2]


A Kharbranthian oath of "by Vedeledev's golden keys!" is used to express astonishment.[3]

Within the context of the Ten Essences Vedel is traditionally associated with the Loving and Healing Divine Attributes[4], the diamond gemstone, and the essence of lucentia.

The name shortens to vev, and is used to denote the number four, and is often found in dates such as Vevevev , the fourth day of the fourth week of the fourth month. It is also used as an expression.[5]
