Kardysh is in charge of the docks in Udyn. He was approached by the companions, who wanted to find the man who ferried captives to and from slave island. He in turn directed them to Mamoun. The following day, the companions came to him on the docks again, asking about Mamoun. But he said he hadn't seen him, and the companions were then apprehended by the vizier's soldiers. Kardysh presumably still lives in Udyn. He appears in Chapters 10 and 11.
