Cuale is a plump man with an unctuous manner.
Cuale welcomes Rand al'Thor, Hurin, and Loial to the Defender of the Dragonwall when the group arrives in the city. Shortly after the groups' arrival in his inn, Cuale presents Rand with invitations from three minor nobles. Each day, the invitations come from higher and higher ranked nobles, eventually culminating in invitations from Barthanes Damodred and Galldrian Riatin. Cuale bemoans the loss of the Defender of the Dragonwall when it caught fire.
