Maya and Adolin

Question

Do we know what type of spren Maya was before she was killed by her radiant?

And could Adolin potentially become that type of radiant because of her?

She was a cultivationspren like Wyndle. And yes, it's highly speculated that Adolin will revive her and become an Edgedancer.

Maya was a Cultivationspren, they Bond with Edgedancers.

As for whether or not Adolin could Bond with her and/or heal her, that's under debate

To be sure, Adolin becoming Awesome via Maya is the line of reasoning we're almost expected to take. We're dropped hints throughout Oathbringer that the dead Spren aren't really dead, just broken, and that if something is broken, then it can be fixed using the power of friendship and more importantly huge glutes  Storming lighteyes  Bondsmith Cohesion. Further, Maya does stuff that we're told dead spren can't do, like forming a Blade within fewer than 10 heartbeats. 

Brandon isn't really the kind of guy who's going to pull the rug out from under us entirely just to SuBvErT eXpEcTaTiOnS, but equally I don't know how likely it is that we'll get the "obvious" resolution. Perhaps Adolin restores Maya to a functioning Cognitive Realm spren, and they become friends but don't form a Nahel Bond together; perhaps Adolin never quite fulfills the promise and at the end of book 5 we're left with Maya as a "half broken" spren who is a bit better but not fully healed; perhaps Adolin has to sacrifice something in order to bring Mayalaran back and we get some Lightsong-esque character arc for him. All of these are pretty reasonable IMO and they make you go "ooh that's clever I should have seen it coming" without just taking the obvious way out of the setup, but we really don't know yet.
