Yis was a leatherworker in Dalinar's warcamp. He was consulted by Adolin during the investigation into the broken saddle strap of King Elhokar. Yis agreed with his colleague, Avaran, that the strap had been cut.[1]


Yis is yellow-eyed with stark golden hair. His hair is described as golden - not blond - with a metallic sheen to it. He keeps it short and wears a cap. (He didn't want to draw attention to it because many considered a lock of Iriali hair to be a ward of good luck.)[1]
