What metals are these?

10 posts in this topic

Hello,

I was reading the new Mistborn: Secret History copy and noticed some allomantic symbols I did not recognize. Does anyone know what they are?

I dont think we know yet. They arent in the Coppermind listing yet at least.

The one on the left is fundamentally different than all the rest with the extra-spiky bits, which makes me think it's entirely foreign and thus is Trellium.   Though the same can be said about the one on the right since it's the only example with multiple dots, so who knows.

I think at this point in the Cosmere, it could be any of the godmetals. For example, in the secret history, Kelsier gets a glimpse of Sel and Ire technology. I would not be surprised if those symbols referred to Dominion and Devotion metals for that reason

I knew it looked familiar!  The one on the right looks almsot identical to Aon Ire:

The second one is definitely a version of Aon Ire stylized after the Steel Alphabet, and considering the group Kelsier meets is called the Ire and the part of the story is titled "Ire", I'm guessing they just did this for aesthetic purposes.

The first one is the symbol for Kredik Shaw, I'm pretty sure.

These are just symbols in the Steel Alphabet, and don't represent any new metals. I don't think that Brandon Sanderson is going to break the rule of sixteen by adding any more, except for God Metals and their alloys, which are a special case.

It doesnt have to be actual new mundane metals, the steel alphabet has always had more symbols than just the actual metals, including at least 5 whose meanings are unrevealed (and 4 of which Im guessing correspond to the Dawnshards, but that's probably off-topic).

On the Coppermind page for Ire, it says that the symbol on the left is the steel alphabet-style symbol for Ire. As for the other one, I have no clue. It could be Trellium, or Kredik Shaw.

The spiky one is in fact the lord ruler’s symbol or the symbol for Kredik Shaw.

As an answer, left is just Kredik Shaw, you can see it on maps and the official coins. 

Right is a Steel Alphabet version of the Aon Ire, due to the Selish Ire showing up in the Part. 

It isn't anything particularly deep or complex.
