I'm just going to jump right into it.1.  I think Gavin (Dazen) killed Sevastian and that was actually the first time he used black luxin to forget. I think I've said this theory before, but I'll…Continue

The blue wight

So I re-read the series again, and the blue wight killing Sevastian still irks me. It seems to random and purposeful at the same time. There is a deeper significance, but I can't think of any. Any…Continue

Most (if not all) blackguards are drafters, even if it's not an obvious color (ex: paryl or chi). Grinwoody was a blackguard initiate, but choose to sign with Andross before final vows.So can…Continue

I'm just going to jump right into it.1.  I think Gavin (Dazen) killed Sevastian and that was actually the first time he used black luxin to forget. I think I've said this theory before, but I'll reiterate it.  From my memory, there is no one else who saw the blue Wight, and Gavin himself said that the whole thing didn't make any sense.  There is evidence that black luxin causes forgetfulness and madness.  That isprobably also how he gained his first drafting abilities.  I don't think he did it…See More

Can Grinwoody Draft?

Posted on October 15, 2015 at 3:53pm 2 Comments

Most (if not all) blackguards are drafters, even if it's not an obvious color (ex: paryl or chi).  Grinwoody was a blackguard initiate, but choose to sign with Andross before final vows.  

So can Grinwoody draft? If yes, what colors?

The Broken Eye and Black Luxin (Spoilers if you haven't read TBE)

Posted on September 6, 2014 at 12:57pm 3 Comments

So I just finished TBE and was thinking about the tenets of the Order of the Broken Eye.  At the end, Grinwoody tells Ironfist that he either needs to save or Kill Kip.  Ironfist delivers the black luxin crystal.  

We also see that Gavin (Dazen) is locked up in the prison he set up for his brother.  Gavin is capable of drafting black luxin as we saw in the eye gouging scene and he mentions it (I think after he kills the Whiteoaks). 

I think it's fair to say The…
