Tukks was a drill sergeant in Amaram's army. He trained the recruits in the squad to which Kaladin was assigned. He dies at some point.[1]

Tukks gave Kaladin his first lesson with a weapon in Amaram's army, and advised him how to control his emotions in battle, which helped Kaladin refine and channel what he could do.[1]

Tukks' LessonEdit

"The first step is to care. Some talk about being emotionless in battle. Well, I suppose it's important to keep your head. But I hate that feeling of killing while calm and cold. I've seen that those who care fight harder, longer, and better than those who don't. It's the difference between mercenaries and real soldiers. It's the difference between fighting to defend your homeland and fighting on foreign soil.

"It's good to care when you fight, so long as you don't let it consume you. Don't try to stop yourself from feeling. You'll hate who you become." [1]
