Elthal is the highest-ranked officer in Dalinar's army who had survived the disaster of the battle at the Tower. He'd been one of those to hold the gap alongside Dalinar during the last part of the fight.[1]

Dalinar directed him to take the wounded to his warcamp, then tell Teleb to bring the entire camp to alert and mobilize the remaining companies.[1]

Elthal saluted Dalinar and was told to prepare for anything, but hopefully nothing, then left to follow his orders.[1]


Elthal is a limber man with a distinguished face and a thin mustache.[1]
