Is this a typo?


Recommended Posts

"Vasher decided the knowledge of how to Awaken Type IV Entities was far too dangerous and killed Shashara to keep her from spreading it as she did the ability to make Lifeless from a single breath." ~ Coppermind on Nightblood

Should this be "had" ?

"Did" would indicate past tense while "had" would be past perfect. Past perfect is grammatically correct here, but it easily leads to the misunderstanding that Shashara has just had the ability instead of had spread it.

If you know the story, the wiki entry is correct in the current version (had instead of did). Not knowing the details though, you might misunderstand it. @Thail seems to have been a victim to that misunderstanding, as well as me ;-)
