Roion was a Highprince of Alethkar. He had great archers, superior to those of the other Highprinces.[1] However, he won the fewest gemhearts of all of the Highprinces.[2]

Roion was one of only three Highprinces to, quite unexpectedly, accompany Dalinar to the center of the Shattered Plains to assault the Parshendi and locate the Oathgate.[3]

When Dalinar was attacked by Szeth near the center of the Shattered Plains, Roion attempted to defend him and was lashed to a point in the sky by Szeth. He later plummeted from the sky and and hit the ground with a sickening crunch.[4] Roion was pronounced dead by Dalinar, stating that he fell with honor.[5]
