Jakamav is a lighteyes of the third dahn.[1] He is an Alethi Shardbearer of House Roion and a good friend of Adolin's.

He is present when Adolin meets the Parshendi Shardbearer, Eshonai.[citation needed]


He is a sturdy man who has pale green eyes.[1][2]


Elit's cousin, Relis was approached by Adolin and offered a duel, the spoils of which would be Adolin's Plate and Blade, plus Renarin's Plate and Blade, and the Shard Adolin had won from Erraniv; five Shards to Relis's two: Relis's Plate and Blade. Relis refused the duel, which Adolin then offered to Elit, who accepted. The spoils were to be Adolin's five Shards to Elit's one.[3]

Since the dueling agreement between Relis and Adolin had been refused by Relis, yet agreed upon by Elit, the number of duelists Adolin would face had never been agreed upon. Upon entering the arena, Elit was accompanied by Relis, Jakamav, and Abrobadar. Elit was garbed in a set of the King's slate grey Plate, yet it was Relis to whom the dueling agreement had been attributed (since it was he whom Adolin had originally approached with the challenge) and Adolin hadn't specified that he'd face Relis and only one other.[4]

While Elit wore King's Plate, he wielded only a hammer in the duel, which he used to effect in bashing Adolin's armor. However, Adolin eventually slammed his Shardblade into Elit's breastplate, which exploded into molten light. Eventually, it was Kaladin (who'd joined in the fight) who smashed Elit's exposed chest with his own broken spear, thereby doubling Elit over, who then yielded combat - forfeiting his Shardplate - and hobbled off the field after giving his helm over to Kaladin.[5]
