Words of RadianceEdit

During Szeth's assasination attempt on Dalinar, Hobber was sent ahead of the group. After the attack, Kaladin believed him dead, only to find him lying on the floor sobbing because of his failure in fufilling his duty. His legs had been killed by Szeth's Honorblade, and he could no longer walk. He was then made one of Rock's assistants.
