Took was one of Szeth's masters. He liked to think of himself as a seasoned traveler, but really just moved around in a wide circle. His greatest tale was of the time he had seen the Nightwatcher herself and stolen a sphere that glowed black at night.
Unlike some of Szeth's other masters, Took was not afraid of Szeth. He liked to show him off. After doing so in an inn, he was killed by footpads with a knife in his neck.
