Nazh, also known as Nazrilof, is an ardent, yet thus far, remains a somewhat mysterious character within The Stormlight Archive. He is in the employ of Khriss, to whom he delivers information on Shardworlds in the forms of cartography and glyphs. Nazh is extremely knowledgable about the cosmere, though not as knowledgable as his employer.
Apparently, in late 1173 on Roshar, Nazh observed the bridgemen of Bridge Four being tattooed with their emblem of freedom from slavery. Rock shooed Nazh off from the Bridge Four barrack because, as described by Rock, the ardent had been loitering with a sketchbook, attempting to draw bridgemen.
I had to spend hours watching the bridgemen to sketch their stupid forehead glyphs so you could have them, my friend.
(It is assumed that this 'friend' is Khriss.)
Nazh is also the Worldhopper who drew the maps for the second trilogy of Mistborn novels.
He informs Kelsier that he has stumbled onto something far, far bigger than he, his politics, or his world can handle. Khriss agrees that Nazh has a point and states that Kelsier's points are dangerous.
Further, he reads and sketches, which - as an ardent is common - yet which is uncommon amongst men on Roshar.
