Awesomeness Summoned, I apologize, I misspoke. I did mean Skybreakers. Thank you for the correction! That makes a lot of sense. I was looking at it in the light of, if you belong to one of the orders, you're a surgebinder. Interesting that Nin has decided to induct individuals that are not capable of surgebinding and including those that hold true to the ideal of the Skybreakers. Thank you for the insight!
Hi everyone, New to the site and have a question. I've done some looking around and can't seem to find anything regarding this. It seems like a fairly obvious question that nobody is asking but it's very possible that I've missed the an obvious answer or it's already being discussed somewhere. If so I apologize in advance. We all know that Szeth is given a sword that is potentially Nightblood from WarBreaker. I don't think there's any argument there. However, when Nin brings Szeth back from the dead, he tells him that he he is perfect for the order of Skybreakers. This is confusing to me on a number of levels. As far as we know there are only two ways to become a surgebinder; bond with a spren or be in possession of an honor blade. Szeth has no spren and is now without an honor blade. So, my question is how can he become a Skybreaker? Does he have a spren that he/we are unaware of? Any clarification / theories are much appreciated!
