Aona was the original Vessel of the Shard Devotion.[2] Sometime after the Shattering, she and Skai took up residence on Sel.[1] Edgli believes that, by doing so, they violated the original Vessels' pact to not settle on the same world as another Shard,[3][4] though the exact terms of that agreement are somewhat unclear.[5] They were both Splintered by Odium and their combined power forms the Dor. [1][6][7]

Abilities and Attributes[edit]

Aona was a Shard of Adonalsium, making her one of the most powerful entities in the cosmere. Prior to being splintered she was immortal, unaging, and incorporeal. The Dor is her and Skai's Shard pushed into the Cognitive Realm by Odium; it fuels the magics AonDor, Dakhor, ChayShan, Forgery, and Bloodsealing.[8][9]


Nothing is known about Aona's origins and life prior to the Shattering, other than that she came from Yolen.[10] For unknown reason, she and a group of others broke cosmere's creator deity, Adonalsium, into sixteen pieces.[11] Of those sixteen, she took up Devotion, and departed alongside Dominion for Sel.[12]

When Raoden enters the pool, he hears a voice, which may be that of Aona's Cognitive Shadow, though whether or not she even has a Cognitive Shadow is unknown.[13][14]
