[OB] sergeant tukks

7 posts in this topic

Several times through all the books kaladin recalls his old sergeant tukks, of whom he had a very high opinion. Tukks was, of course, in amaram army, and so likely he was in taylen city (assuming he wasn't left behind in alethkar, of course). However, many of sadeas forces survived and were freed from the possession when odium fled.  tukks may be among them.

Do you think he will make an appearance in the future? Maybe being recognized by kaladin among the prisoners? or maybe we'll never hear of him outside of flashbacks?

I feel like Tukks is potentially dead and gone by now. However, it wouldn't surprise me to see him show up in SA 4 as part of Kaladin's journey towards the 4th Oath. Tukk's was (is?) essential for Kaladin to realize things about war, and about leading men. If the theory that Windrunner oaths follow the Divine Attributes is correct, it's possible that Tukks or someone else from Kaladin's past would be the key to him fully realizing it.

I forget, where did Vasher go, he may also have something to say. Isn't possible tukks was killed as someone who knew Kaladin too well?

It's possible, but remember the other members of Kaladin's squad were killed because they were the only surviving witnesses of him killing Hellaran, not because they knew Kaladin really well. We also know that most, if not all, the Secret Societies on Roshar, were unaware of Kaladin being a potential Radiant, so there would be no reason to look into his past associations to root out knowledge of him. AS for Vasher (aka Zahel), not sure where he went....I mean, after a few scenes in early OB where he interacts with Dalinar he just....fades into the background, and we don't get to see him anymore. Either he's decided to get out of Dodge fast with the True Desolation's arrival, or he's keeping low and not stirring up any trouble and sticking with the other Ardents.

Tukks died before Kaladin was made a slave, Kaladin mentions it in the way of kings I think.

"They were all dead. Cenn and Dallet, and before that Tukks and the Takers. Before that, Tien. Before that, blood on his hands and the corpse of a young girl with pale skin."

 

I'd thought along these lines myself until I remembered that quote. 

A thing to note is that another of kaladins sergeants from amarams army Hav is potentially still alive so he could make a return

@Doomdrinker Ahh, yes, good find! I knew there was a reason I thought Tukks was dead already... Still, it's possible that Kal's flashbacks to his time in the army may give him the right insight to be able to say the 4th oath and actually mean it. Too hard to say at this point, though, I suppose.

I would love to find out what happened to tukks especially given how highly Kaladin thinks of him.
