Discussion about early Sigzil

3 posts in this topic

 

So I've finished the four books of the series like a month ago and started the reread (so I can find what I've missed and early characters and foreshadowing)

So I was surprised when I reached chapter 27 in the way of kings chasm duty where Gaz order bridge 4 to chasm duty even tho it wasn't their turn, Kaladin Teft and Rok started talking about the importance of meaning of names and having a conversation and Kaladin wanted more to join the conversation and let bridge 4 open up, ofc others just ignore what Kaladin trying to do, later on Kaladin found a spear and held it as he started to remember how it's like to fight in the past and then Moash start talking about Kaladin and calling him lordling about how he boast of being a soldier and a squad leader then he just went to continue his work, the shocking thing is that Sigzil is the one who continued what Moash said and said "look at him, oh bridge leader u think you are that grand that you are better than us, you think pretending that we are your own personal group of soldiers will change anything" "leave him alone" Drehy said

 

 

I'm pretty sure before Sigzil accepting himself to be a worldsinger (storyteller) that he is described as being quite the kind of guy who keep it to himself, and that what we kinda get from him later on.

 

 

 

Do you guys think Sigzil would have been a different character and Brandon Sanderson changed his character?

I think some of that was that Sigzil would not let himself think of himself as a Worldsinger, so he'd cut that portion of himself off and withdrawn into himself, becoming bitter and resentful in the absence of anything to replace that portion of himself other than the sullen attitude of the rest of the bridgemen. Basically I think Sigzil was mirroring the attitude of the larger bridge crew assembly, because the alternative was to torture himself constantly with the thoughts of who he once was and then come crashing back down into the hell of the bridge runs.

At this point most of the bridgemen are resigned to the fact that they will die horribly very soon. None of them have any hope of a future.
