Yis is an Iriali leatherworker on Roshar. He works in the warcamps on the Shattered Plains during the War of Reckoning.[1]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

He has yellow eyes and golden hair with a metallic sheen. He wears his hair short and covers it with a cap to avoid attention. He seems to have some level of education, as he exhibits a relatively large vocabulary.[1]


He is one of the lead leatherworkers in Dalinar Kholin's warcamp. Adolin consults Yis and his colleague, Avaran, during the investigation into Elhokar's broken saddle strap. Adolin shows Yis and Avaran the strap, and they agree that it was sliced rather than torn. Janala briefly interrupts, later calling the leatherworking shop "stinky". Yis and Avaran do not confirm Elhokar's theory that someone cut the strap intentionally, since they have seen similar cuts caused by loose buckles or improper storage.[1] Adolin later visits more leatherworkers, and most of them agree with Yis and Avaran's findings.[2]
