Navani the Bondsmith

4 posts in this topic

I been thinking that since is very probably that Adolin is going to be able to revive Maya, I kind of think that somehow Navani is going to do the same with The Sibling in the tower, and she is going to become the second Bondsmith. I think that the high focus we are getting from her PoV, and how persistent she is being about finding out the secrets of the tower is building up to this.

What do u guys think about this?

That is somewhat the general consensus, but there are a couple factors that I think make that exact situation unlikely(though still possible). The Fused said that the Sibling is "essentially" a deadeye which I interpret to mean similarly incapacitated but not damaged in the way the actual deadeyes are. The Stormfather has said the Sibling is "sleeping" and that "you hurt them enough." Then we have the Soulcaster spren who Navani said looked like sapient Radiant spren who also appear to be sleeping. Those are pretty much all of the facts we have on the matter, but there is some speculation I saw that looks promising. I don't remember who said it or where, but someone speculated that the sleeping fabrial spren are the spren of Radiants who reached the 5th Oath. So my thought is that somehow Navani figures out how ancient Radiants used the sleeping spren to make fabrials and she is able to make the tower function by turning the Sibling into a giant fabrial without a bond. It's satisfying seeing our main characters become Radiants, but I think it would be more narratively fulfilling to have Navani fix the tower through fabrial science over a Nahel bond. Regardless, Navani will likely be pulling some crazy stuff at the end of this book one way or another. 

Edit: forgot to add that I'm also speculating that whoever bonded the Sibling last was the first Bondsmith to reach the 5th Oath.

I think this will happen, and the foreshadowing I like the most is every time Navani tells herself that she's not a real researcher, she just brings people together so they can do the real work.

BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER

Yeah, Bondsmith Navani revives and bonds the Sibling, and also convinces the ancient spren to resume its place as the spren inhabiting the fabrial called Urithiru. It's that last piece that I'm interested in seeing, since clearly the Sibling doesn't want anything to do with humanity right now.

That's also a possibility: she convinces the spren to enter the fabrial, but doesn't bond it, so no second Bondsmith. Or, perhaps, Navani convinces the spren to inhabit the tower, but someone else bonds it (Rlain is looking to Unite some peoples, too, and he's also looking for a spren that wants to bond him).

Here’s my take on Navani’s Second Ideal:

”I will unite instead of divide. I will bring ideas together.”
