Somehow Kolyan has managed to hold on to his more child-like nature and he seems a bit more innocent than the others. He has a refreshing air this way, and Shad often spends time talking to Kolyan when there’s time.
Kolyan is killed in an attack on the Moat Rebellion camp and later raised as a zombie to attack the remaining group in a successful attempt to free captives. Sashok is anguished by his appearance as a zombie, and launches himself onto the corpse, tearing into him with daggers. After successfully destroying the corpse, Sashok vomits and cries while Sina comforts him.
