Inadara is a great lighteyed scholar, a scribe on the Shattered Plains, and a severe woman.[1] She reminds Shallan of her father's ardents. She is one amongst a group of scholars, including lighteyes and ardents, who assist Shallan in her search for the Oathgate.[2]


Inadara is a wizened matron, with grey hair cut short for simplicity.[1]


In observing Pattern, Inadara expresses ...

"I do not like this thing. Spren should not speak. It may be of them, a Voidbringer."[2]

Further, she expresses that Pattern should be studied, querying of Shallan just how long Pattern has been "following" her. She thought that Shallan shouldn't dismiss her own theory, relating Pattern to the Voidbringers. Pattern, of course, refutes Inadara's assertions with his characteristic sarcasm.[2]


Inadara accompanies Adolin in his guise as his father, in his father's Shardplate, onto the Plains to meet with Eshonai in order to record their conversation.[1]

When the search for the Oathgate was engaged, Inadara was tempted to take control and suggested making the expedition into the central plateau, yet deferred to Shallan in the effort to find it.[2]
