|“||We are the Cobalt Guard ... . Our duty is to protect Brightlord Adolin.||”|
Members of the Cobalt Guard wore deep blue felt caps and cloaks over silvery breastplates and deep blue trousers. The Guard was comprised of lighteyes of low rank, able to carry swords for close fighting.
During the War of Reckoning, members of the Cobalt Guard included the following: the head of the Guard, Niter, Captainlord Malan and at least six more members amongst whom were the lighteyes, Tibon and Marks.
Following the incident of the battle at the Tower, the Cobalt Guard had nearly been wiped out, and the remaining men were needed to augment the King's Guard. Highprince Dalinar Kholin made an offer to Kaladin - and members of Bridge Four - to become the new honor guard. While they accepted the honor of protecting Dalinar and his family, they chose not to be known as the Cobalt Guard and instead to retain the name Bridge Four, thus likely ending the battalion's history.
