Shalash is one of the ten Heralds of the Almighty, and the daughter of Jezrien.[1] She is the patron of the Order of Knights Radiant known as Lightweavers.

Shalash'Elin is associated with the number Shash, the essence Blood, and the divine attributes Creativity and Honesty. She is called Ash among her fellows and Shalash'Elin in modern Alethkar.

Prior to his assassination of King Gavilar Kholin, Szeth passes by statues of the Heralds within the palace in Kholinar, but the image of Shalash is conspicuously missing.[1]  In Words of Radiance, Lift notices a painting with one of the Herald's faces scratched out in the Bronze Palace in Azir. (This may or may not be related to Baxil's later experience with his cousin, Av, and his "mistress", who destroys specific art pieces.[2] Might she be Shalash incognito?)


  • Brandon confirmed that Shalash appears in The Way of Kings[3] though it's unknown where.
  • When asked outright whether Baxil's mistress is, in fact, Shalash, Brandon replied, RAFO.[4]
