There was a story that the rest of the kingdom told which claimed that their branch of the house had, until recently, been ruffians from the backwaters of their own princedom. At one time, Gavilar had apparently seemed to have bought into it.[1]

Sigil of Highprince Dalinar Kholin

Unstylized version of the Kholin Glyph

The House banner is described as being deep blue with white glyphs - khokh and linil, stylized and painted as a sword standing before a crown.[6] On Dalinar's banner, khokh is drawn in the shape of a crown and linil forms a tower. Dalinar's mother had drawn the original design, the same his signet ring bore, though Elhokar used a sword and crown instead.[7]
