The Way of Kings (mentioned), |
Words of Radiance (mentioned),
Tarah is somewhat of a mystery in Kaladin's past. It is assumed that she too is/was an Alethi darkeyes. She and Kaladin were obviously close in some way. Whether such closeness was romantic or platonic remains to be discovered.
Kaladin has referred to her some few times in The Way of Kings and in Words of Radiance.
|“||" ... I let Tien die, I failed my spearmen, the slaves I tried to rescue, Tarah... ." He hadn't thought of her in some time. His failure with her had been different from the others, but was a failure nonetheless.||”|
What would have happened to him, if Tarah hadn't coaxed him out of his single-minded dedication? Would he have burned himself out, as she'd claimed.
