The Way of Kings (mentioned), |
Words of Radiance (mentioned),
Kaladin has referred to her some few times in The Way of Kings and in Words of Radiance.
|“||" ... I let Tien die, I failed my spearmen, the slaves I tried to rescue, Tarah ... ." He hadn't thought of her in some time. His failure with her had been different from the others, but was a failure nonetheless.'||”|
–Kaladin, while thinking on those he failed.
What would have happened to him, if Tarah hadn't coaxed him out of his single-minded dedication? Would he have burned himself out, as she'd claimed?
In a flash of light, he saw her eyes as she looked up from where her head had been resting against his chest, beads of water on her eyelashes. With his hands around her waist, hers around him, it was as close as he'd held a woman since Tarah.
–Kaladin, and Shallan, as she tells him of her past.
