Tearim was Captain of the King's Guard during Gavilar Kholin's reign.  He was seen by Jasnah wearing Gavilar's Shardplate (who'd stopped wearing it of late, preferring to entrust it to Tearim) just prior to Gavilar's assasination. He was known as one of the world's great duelists.[1]


The King's Guard during the reign of Gavilar Kholin was not the King's Guard of Elhokar Kholin. Neither was it the Cobalt Guard prior to and early on in King Elhokar's reign.
