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.
Elthal saluted Dalinar and was told to prepare for anything, but hopefully nothing, then left to follow his orders.
Elthal is a limber man with a distinguished face and a thin mustache.
