Bast is Kvothe's assistant, student, and friend and lives with him at the Waystone Inn. He is a main character in the frame story and, along with Devan Lochees, was present during the majority of Kvothe's recollection.


Bast is described to have a sharp and delicate face, almost beautiful, with striking blue eyes.[1] He moves "with a strange delicacy and grace, as if he were close to dancing".[2]

Bast is revealed to be a member of the Fae under a Glammourie, a type of Fae magic that makes a thing seem like something else without changing the inherent nature of the thing. His true appearance is very similar with the main differences being that his eyes are blue with no sclera and his feet are actually cloven hooves.[1]
