Where did the old Radiants go?


Recommended Posts

When will they ever learn? When will they ever learn!


This is a riff on the song "Where have all the flowers gone" instead... you know...where have all the old Radiants gone? I would normally surround such statements with music notes, but SOMEBODY thinks this forum can survive on like, 5 emoticons! I know! It's crazy! There is not even an emoticon of a smiley shouting swears on top of a soapbox! It's like we are in the dark ages of Prodigy Internet service provider and AOL free trials arriving in the mail!

Welcome to the Shard!

If you remember the in-universe Words of Radiance excerpts, one of them tells us what happened:


This act of great villainy went beyond the impudence which had hitherto been ascribed to the orders; as the fighting was particularly intense at the time, many attributed this act to a sense of inherent betrayal; and after they withdrew, about two thousand made assault upon them, destroying much of the membership; but this was only nine of the ten, as one said they would not abandon their arms and flee, but instead entertained great subterfuge at the expense of the other nine.

In other words, most of the former Radiants were killed shortly after the Recreance by people angry at the perceived betrayal.
