Jezrien is one of the ten Heralds of the Almighty. He is associated with the number Jes, the essence Zephyr, and the divine attributes Protecting and Leading. He is the patron for the Order of Knights Radiant known as Windrunners.

Jezrien was the King of the Heralds who waited for Kalak to inform him that the Heralds were breaking the Oathpact.[1] He is viewed as a deity for many of the people of Roshar.[2]

Through the millennium, his name differs with several variations, such as Jezerezeh'Elin. In Alethkar he is sometimes mistakenly known as the Stormfather, though this is a title bestowed upon him by Vorinism. (The true Stormfather is a spren). He has been described as follows:

Master of the storms, bringer of water and life, known for his fury and his temper, but also for his mercy.[2]

In the Kingdom of Emul he is considered the only god, quite unlike what is taught in the Vorin religion.

He is described as looking "young, like a man barely into his thirtieth year." [1] Jezrien is also said to have a short, neatly trimmed black beard and a deep, regal voice. [1]


By the end of the Desolation he was a broken man, a shell of his former self, though he still retained his king-like manner.[1]
