Nathal Bartyn (? - ? AC) was a male Aesthetic of the Great Library of Palanthas. Nathal was also known as Nathal of Palanthas and Nathal the Chronicler. He specialized in writing events of the modern era. He kept a correspondence with his friend Jaclyn Cashell in order to keep informed of world events.

Nathal believed that the Chaos War's destruction was akin to the Cataclysm so he invented a new date system referred to as SC (Secundus Cataclius).

In 414 AC, he compiled the Chronicles of Nathal. In 416 AC, Iryl Songbrook sent him a detailed account describing the Citadel of Light.
