Cultivation's name

18 posts in this topic

A random thought: Could Cultivation's vessel's name be Dawn as in Dawn's Shadow, Dawnshards, Dawnsingers? Don't have time to think about it any more as I'm at work. It just crossed my mind. Please discuss ;-)

Cool idea! I expect when we learn her name I'll slap myself in the forehead like I did when Ashyn - Shin was brought up. I figured Ashyn was the Tranquiline Halls, but I didn't realize the name Shin was reference to Ashyn.  It was staring me in the face for 3 books and I didn't see it. 

We figure Dawn refers to Dawn of Civilization, ancient times. But I could see it being her name.

I doubt it, for one simple reason: we rarely see real world names in the Cosmere. Dawn is a real world name. But still, a good thought.

I'm very skeptical based on the other known names for shardholders. Ati, Tanavast, Leras, Edgli, Uli Da, Bavadin, Rayse, Aona, Skai, and....Dawn? I don't think so. 

I think it's more likely that dawn has associations with the Origin and the direction East, and thus overlaps with religious worship related to the Stormfather. Or, perhaps, it's a holdover from humans' time on Ashyn, maybe some kind of Kingdom of Dawn style branding.

Her name is Crem. It's ... really unfortunate. 

Is this per the Cultivationlight Shardcast?

Somebody call @Calderis. Cultivations name is known, but I can't recall it.

No it isn't. It's the only Vessel name we don't have.

The best we have is this, right?

Yep, that's the closest we've got. I'd love to know why she's called Slammer.

@Extesian What if Brandon did as you asked and she is in fact named Rafo?

Maybe because she is the Shard that is keeping Odium locked into the Roshar system now that Honor is dead. I would like to think she was in law enforcement before she Ascended. That would explain why Cultivation never liked Hoid very much. Hoid isn't the a strict law follower.

Well if the King's Drop is a Dawnshard, then Dawnshard's imprison Unmade...or put them in the slammer.

I asked Brandon (I think it was at the Words of Radiance signing) if the woman who was Wit's age was named Reya (there is a constellation mentioned called Reya's Tears) and I was RAFO'd
