|Appears in||The Way of Kings, Words of Radiance|
When Dalinar was attacked by Szeth near the center of the Shattered Plains, Roion attempted to defend him and was lashed to a point in the sky by Szeth. He later plummeted from the sky and and hit the ground with a sickening crunch. Roion was pronounced dead by Dalinar, stating that he fell with honor.
Roion is described as cowardly by many and has been compared to a turtle on more than one occasion. However at the battle at the end of Words of Radiance, Dalinar says that Roion is not cowardly but careful - and in his defence of Dalinar he showed real bravery.
Roion is not a key character in the book, so doesn't really have any personality traits other than cowardice until his surprising alliance with Dalinar towards the end of his life. Otherwise he is presumably a lot like the other highprinces in his greed and squabbles as he often gets lumped together with them when Dalinar mentions them.
