Is Hoid mentioned in the Ghastly Gondola Story?

Question

In the New Ascendancy broadsheet which is a paper in New Seran, there is an Allomancer Jak Presents story titled "The Ghastly Gondola", about the leecher detective Nicki Savage. Toward the end of the story she mentions a white-haired young man who offered to tell her a story. This sounds like Hoid in both appearance and personality. Does anyone know more about this, or is there a WOB confirming it?

Yeah, Its hoid.

 

 

Questioner

Broadsheets of Bands of Mourning. The story that Allomancer Jak's sidekick... in it, there's this <part>, "After disembarking the the lift, I walked to the location where my foe would have hit the ground. I found no trace of him, and though no one witnessed his fall, a young white-haired man was there and offered to tell me a story. I declined." Is that Hoid?

So, there's a reference to a young white-haired man offering to tell a story. Whenever those words combine together, chances are very, very good that Hoid is involved. Yes, that is Hoid, but one thing I have to tell you is, not everything in that story... you are getting a story which was written by somebody, and then turned into a thing for a broadsheet. So, there have been some inaccuracies perpetuated in the broadsheets. So, yes, that's where that came from.

Welcome to the Shard!

As mentioned, yes it is and kudos for spotting it. It's also not the only reference to a worldhopper in that story. xD

the story is full of worldhopper references, including other worlds curses, and a literal shade
