Let’s show some love to those precious Selish magic systems! It’s my first time depicting ChayShan moves and it is loosely based on Tai Chi, according to what Brandon said in Elantris annotations:

The ChayShan is a martial art I devised to feel just a bit like Tai Chi—though ChayShan focuses on speeding up the motions and gaining power from them. I’ve always kind of thought that Tai Chi would look more interesting if it slowly sped up. [Source]

Characters above are (From left to right): Captain Zu, Shuden, Bloodsealer, Shai.

Thank you, @Hemalurgic_Headshot. I will have that stuck in my head for a while now.

Also, is it just me or does far left (Zu) look like they're ngrily brushing their hair out of their face.

Did anyone else think waterbender when reading Tai Chi? Oh man, the Cosmere is descended from the Avatar; ChayShan developed from the water tribes.
