SuperCon: Cosmere Character Discussion

Recommended Posts

Here we can discuss our favorite characters from Brandon Sanderson's Cosmere Universe.  Feel free to share any characters that you like, but keep in mind that some haven't read all of these works, so it might be prudent to spoiler tag some things.

 

Also - spoilers tags do not appear in email notifications, so if you are crazy about not reading spoilers, I would suggest not subscribing.

By far, my favorite character in Mistborn was Sazed.  He also stands as one of my favorite characters of all time!

 

I like him because, well he is sort of like me.  He is kind and thoughtful, often thinking before doing.  For a Terrisman, however, he is also somewhat impulsive.  The fact that he is a part of the Skaa rebellion is one instance where this shows.  Also - how cool is Feruchemy!!!! Seriously one of my favorites magic systems ever.

 

The following contains spoilers from the original Mistborn Trilogy

 

I leapt for joy when I found out that Sazed was the Hero of Ages.  I just think that we don't expect the quiet scholarly types to be the heroes of the tales.  It was awesome to see this play out, and to be honest I didn't see it coming until it happened.  I think it's pretty great writing on Sanderson's part.

Can I pick a favorite from each world?? Lol

 

Tied for top are Jasnah and Sarene, which just goes to show I apparently have a deep appreciation for strong women in leadership roles.

You can pick your favorites from each world - just love talking characters.

 

I recognize the name Jasnah, but it's been awhile since I've read Stormlight Archive.  I need to do a reread.

I love Wayne: he's got that whole seeking redemption thing going on, but it's also intriguing how he's smarter than others give him credit for, particulary when comparing to Wax, and I think he uses that to his advantage.

 

And Steris has really grown on me as well.

Wayne started out as annoying to me and then he grew on me for the reasons you said above. His whole redemption is cool - and yes he’s very intelligent. 

 

Im in Shadows of Self and so haven’t finished the newer trilogy, but Steris is beginning to grow on me as well.

Controversial opinion:

 

I love Adolin Kholin.

 

He's adorable.

 

Although I think my favorite Stormlight Archive character may be Pattern.

The elder, yep.

 

Often derided in the fandom as a bit of a Gary Stu... but he just makes me happy.

I was coming here to type this, I love Adolin!

 

He gets such a bad rap when actually he is a very nice guy. He's my second favourite. I'm a big Dalinar fan. I think he's awesome.

 

Also side note, I always pronounced Jasnah with a hard "J" sound but apparently its more "Y" sounding. Like Yasnah.

    • Yes but there is opening yourself to channel and then there is a quick unintentional use.  If you notice before Rand became a channeler, fully aware of what he was doing and willing try to embrace the power, all you get are the side effects from channeling (the taking chances etc,,) but not the filth feeling.  After book 1, when the using the power and the side effects happened near the same time, all he gets is the filth.  The difference is he knows he can channel and needs to embrace the source to channel.  Just like the women who are starting to channel never seem to notice the warmth of touching the female half until they survive the side effects and become aware what they are doing.  A wilder like Nyn, had she stayed in the Two Rivers, never would of felt the feeling of opening herself to the source since she had built up a block, so it might have to do with you have to open yourself up to the power to feel the good or bad.     In one of Rand's lives in book 2 I believe he was a member of the Queen's guards and was lucky, he thought later he understood why but he didn't care.  He was suffering from touching the male half but was basicly a wilder and it was never said he was feeling the filth.  So I think a lot has to do with someone who channels but doesn't really know it or is never trained how to do it aren't fully opening themselves up enough to feel the filth or warmth.  They are incapable of doing anything more then a quick touch of the surface.   It's possible Rand would of started to feel nausea when he accidently channeled and not probably not understand why.  But there seems to be a difference between inadvertently channeling and intentionally channeling.
