What are all the Colors?

5 posts in this topic

Each god (usually) has two colors, one a hue and one a metallic. The God King's priests wear a different set of two colors each day. Siri wears dresses with colors. Awakeners drain certain colors. There are currently 25 gods with room for about 50.

 

What are all the Colors?

 

Blushweaver: green, silver
Lightsong: red, gold
Stillmark: blue, gold
Mercystar: [orange or yellow], gold
Weatherlove: green, gold
Truthcall: maroon, white
Lifeblesser: blue, silver
Hopefinder: lavender, silver
Brightvision: green, white
Mercystar's colors are contradicted, either orange, gold, or yellow, gold.
 

God King's priests and servants:
blue, silver
yellow, copper
maroon, gold
violet, silver
blue, copper
 

Pahn Kahl: brown

Siri's dresses:
blue, brown, red, violet, gold

Balls in Lightsong's game:
blue, orange, green

God King: black

City watch colors are purple-and-yellow. Lightsong says if he sees purple priest he tosses pebble into purple pot.

Nightblood deepens colors: tan to brown, red to maroon, blue to navy, yellow to gold
 

From the annotations, white is a useless color to an Awakener
 

Hues {red, orange, yellow, green, blue, lavender, violet, maroon, purple}

Metallics {gold, silver, copper, white}

 

Of what we've seen gods or priests wearing, there are 9 hues and 4 "metallics" for 36 combinations. Also possible are brown and black, clearly, and maybe navy or tan. And maybe orange isn't a hue after all, though I'm inclined (ROYGBIV) to believe it is.

Comprehensive. I like it.

 

I will subject it to peer review next time I read Warbreaker.

It is said that the God King's colors are all of the colors because he is the king of their other gods. If you think about black form a color mixture perspective, then it makes perfect sense that they use black for him as when you mix all colors, black is the result.

Also from memory Black is the color that gives the most power from being drained, likely for the same reason.

I'm doing a project for my English II class on this book where I am writing a short story from the point of view of Allmother. Do you, or anyone, really, think that it would make sense for Allmother's colors to be green and copper?
