Vin's Legacy and House Tekiel

16 posts in this topic

So we've known for a while that Vin's father was a Tekiel and that House Tekiel is still around in Wax's time.  As a result I've been wondering about the following question:

 

"As of Era 2 is the nature of Vin's noble heritage (i.e. her father was a Tekiel before joining the Steel Ministry) known and if so, has House Tekiel tried to capitalize on that fact?"

 

So I ordered a copy of Shadows of Self and asked Brandon.  Here's his answer:

So, that's interesting. What do y'all think?

I think I wish I could get a copy now. Stupid Australian delayed releases.  :angry:

So sorry about that.

Seems fairly straightforward, and all that.  If you discovered that a distant relation was a renowned protector who literally gave her life for her world, husband, and emperor, you'd milk that for all it was worth.  Especially if it ingratiates you with the family of said husband and emperor.

Wasn't Tekiel the house that came up with the Breaknaught in The Alloy of Law? This, along with a few comments I seem to vaguely recall, suggest that House Tekiel is one of the more influential ones in Elendel.

I can't see the question either :(

 

Edit: never mind.

My bookstore accidentally put it out on the American release date. I got it on the 6th  ;). (Context: I'm also Australian. Usually I have to wait the extra two days as well.)

 

On topic, it seems interesting but hardly surprising.

 

SoS spoilers:

Wasn't House Tekiel one of the ones to be found out as corrupt?

I don't know about what happens in SoS, but in Alloy they at least determined that Tekiel was sneaking their aluminum shipments in to avoid paying taxes.

Every house is corrupt in one way or another.

But didn't Kelsier and some other houses (Hastings, I think) almost destroyed Tekiel in Mistborn 1 Era 1?

I'm sure they'd be quite proud to bring it up. Though I don't think Vin would have been remotely impressed by the supposed familiar relation she had.

Not even remotely. She did, after all, see her father get stabbed to death in front of her.

Not that she really cared that much for a father she knew for all of a single conversation. One that wasn't even directed at her for the most part.

Well most of that conversation was her old man swearing to high heaven that he had her killed.
