Wylan Van Eck is the son of Jan Van Eck. He joins the team rescuing Bo Yul-Bayur from the Ice Court because of his knowledge in demolitions and his use as a hostage in negotiating the reward.


Wylan has ruddy curls and blue eyes and is the youngest of the group at age sixteen. His young age is only accentuated by his looks, which make him seem younger. Matthias Helvar believed his age to be twelve instead of sixteen.

Kaz Brekker described him as someone who "looked like a child- smooth-skinned, wide-eyed, like a silk-eared puppy in a room full of fighting dogs."

Jesper Fahey stated that Wylan was "cuter when he was smart." He also mentioned that maybe he liked his "stupid face" at the end of the book.

He greatly resembles his father, Jan Van Eck.

Due to Nina's Tailoring abilities, enhanced with the power of jurda paremWylan used to have the appearance of Kuwei Yul-Bo. Genya Safin later changes his appearance to his original one.


Wylan is rather considerate and innocent, despite the fact that he is a part of the Dregs. He is the kindest out of the Dregs, and is very sweet and caring. His privileged status makes him unused to violence and he doesn't like confrontation. Wylan is also very shy, often speaking and commenting only if he is asked to and mostly keeps to himself throughout the ship journey to Djerholm.

Wylan also has a curious, contemplative mind, often questioning how things function such as on Jesper's pistols and the Ice Court's aqueduct system. He prefers music and numbers to words, as he cannot read because of his dyslexia. Wylan is quite insecure regarding his disability. This is also due to his father's rejection and hatred of him because of his inability to read or write. He does not like being compared to a criminal and takes pride in his knowledge of demolition. He is also very artistic, and is skilled in playing musical instruments and drawing.


Jesper FaheyEdit

Jesper likes his stupid face.


Although a gifted artist and musician, Wylan cannot read. Because of this, his father hated him and Wylan left to fend for himself on the streets, ending up working for the Dregs. His father regularly sent letters to mock his reading disability.
