Cool aviar power ideas

3 posts in this topic

This is a thread for thinking up cool aviar powers NOT discussion about what powers they actually have confirmed.

I have 2 ideas:

Aviar that can create illusions

Aviar that can hypnotize lesser animals

From this WOB, they are going to lean toward Cognitive Realm Stuff, and in general they are low-powered magics unlike the main Shardworlds that have more Investiture available/involved.  So I think any of the internal Sensory magic effects would be viable, from basic senses to Life Sense to Seekers to Allomantic Gold, probably even Death Rattles too.  You wont get the high-Power effects that would need more than a person's natural (feruchemical level) effects like Soulcasting or Elsecalling or time bubbles, I think, but you might get some weak Healing.  Perfect memory, something akin to Copperminds or the Lightweaver memory trick.  Mated birds that are Connected and can act like Spanreeds.  Maybe one that Connects you to the locale enough to get the language.

You've talked about some of the correlation between Aviar abilities and Allomantic abilities. Are there any Aviar abilities that are not related to Allomancy, or what are some other abilities that we might see?

Brandon Sanderson

I'll RAFO that, mostly because I want to be free to pick and choose from my list as I canonize them. A lot of Aviar abilities are Cognitive type stuff, just from the way I built them so I can separate the magics. The whole Seeker/coppercloud thing, a lot of Aviar abilities are going to be riffs on that, or they're going to be riffs on glimpsing the Spiritual a little bit. And you see a lot of that in Allomancy. There are abilities that they have that you won't see in Allomancy.

The trick is Allomany is so broad. I built the main magic systems to be able to get a little bit of everything. You see the same thing in Stormlight. So seeing Aviar abilities that you haven't seen some version of it in Mistborn or Stormlight, it's going to be... Mistborn and Stormlight touch on all different parts of the magic system on purpose. But I think you will eventually see some that don't. But they're all going to work on the Cosmere magic, so you can say they're all related.

Where might we see them?

Brandon Sanderson

Aviar are known in the Cosmere but are very, very rare. But as you move forward in the future, perhaps you'll see them more often.

Kolgril Also (Stormlight Archive Spoiler)

Spoiler

We know that Aviar abilities are related to the Fish in the Purelake

Are there any parallels between the fish in the Purelake and the Aviar in Sixth of the Dusk?

Brandon Sanderson

Yes.

Such as Kolgril or Stumpy Cort

So it is likely that there is an Aviar allow you to track or find things/people/animals.

Or if not healing, then maybe something like alleviating discomfort and pain (SA and Mistborn Spoilers)

Spoiler

Like a Painrial removes pain, or like a Thug burning pewter to ignore wounds
