Awakening a Coppermind

Question

I was wondering: the Command used to create Nightblood granted the sword sentience.  I'm assuming that result is repeatable.  So, I am wondering whether any memories stored in a filled Coppermind would be part of the Awakened objects memory and/or personality.  And also, would this help the Awakened object retain memories and learn better?  Because it is implied that Nightblood's memories comprise almost entirely of the first few hours of it's life and those memories can not be overridden and adding to them seems limited.  Just want to know others' thoughts.

Can a coppermind be Awakened?

Brandon Sanderson

This is possible.

Questioner

With the memories already in it?

Brandon Sanderson

This is going to be harder because those memories are going to be keyed to someone else, who, by nature, would not be the individual that it was made into. You would have to key those memories to who the metalmind was becoming. There would be an extra step in there; It wouldn't just naturally be that way. We're talking wild, wild, these are possible, but far out, stuff. Possible, but there is an extra step in there.
