What Shard best fits?

11 posts in this topic

Well, it's been a while since I've made a topic. So this topic is suggesting what Shard/shard intent best fits certain characters. For instance, I would suggest Preservation would be a good fit for Kaladin with his need to protect people. What Shards fits can you think off?

Note that this is currently not in the RoW thread, so be careful there, however, if people want to, you can ask for a mod to move it there.

I'm pretty sure that Invention would be a good fit for Navani even though we haven't seen that Shard yet yet

Whimsy might fit first-few-chapters!Siri

Devotion would fit Evi well

Ambition seems like it'd fit Kelsier

Dominion might fit "Tezim the Great" these days

RoW Spoiler:

Spoiler

Mercy might fit later era Vasher (under the logic of Mercy = throwing off social/spiritual Bonds, the way Honor is creating them).

Devotion for Adolin, maybe even the full Dor, same for Raoden

Dominion for Galivar

Ruin+Odium for both Young Dalinar and Kel

@Aspiring Writer I think it should be moved to the RoW zone, and the two above person obviously agree

Yes; in the future, @Flyingbooks and @Quantus, you cannot post RoW stuff outside the RoW boards, even tagged.

I will move this topic but please note Cosmere Discussion explicitly has "No RoW" in the title. There is a corresponding RoW Cosmere area.

Whimsy probably fits Lift so well.

I think Azure and Kaladin can be switched, but except for that it seems to mostly work.

Kaladin is more very honorable, but he’s better suited to Valor. Honor contains a certain ruthlessness I don’t think he’s capable of. While Valorous acts can also be ruthless ones, that element isn’t an inherent part of the concept.

Put another way: Valor is in saving lives. Honor is in doing so because of a code. Valor is in defeating your enemies. Honor is in doing so because your code says it’s right.

Valor is in performing a difficult feat. Honor is in keeping to a code. Kaladin is much better suited to the former than the latter. He needs to act, to fight, to be doing something. Vivenna, who was raised to rule, is more inclined to the latter. While she can and does choose to act, she doesn’t need to the way Kaladin does.
