Simol is obviously a historical person in The Stormlight Archive. He is mentioned only in the Epigraph for Words of Radiance: Chapter 46.

When Simol was informed of the arrival of the Edgedancers, a concealed consternation and terror, as is common in such cases, fell upon him; although they were not the most demanding of orders, their graceful, limber movements hid a deadliness that was, by this time, quite renowned; also, they were the most articulate and refined of the Radiants.
