Kadash is one of the foremost of Dalinar's Ardents with whom Adolin discusses his father's visions. He believes, just as the early priests of the Hierocracy fabricated their prophesies, that Dalinar is fabricating his visions or unconsciously making them up from dark times in his past.
He also believes religion is romantic.
Like all Ardents, Kadash is technically a slave.
He is lighteyed and is described as being a tall man in his later years with a shaved head and a square beard, with a history in the military that left him a twisting scar around his head. He wears the standard grey robes of the Ardentia. He has risen far in the Ardentia despite his change in Calling.
