There were a group of people before the Ascension known as the Astalsi. They claimed that each person was born with a certain finite amount of ill luck. And so, when an unfortunate event happened, they thought themselves blessed—thereafter, their lives could only get better.

Sazed preaching to Vin[1]

Astalsi was an ancient religion from Scadrial.

The Astalsi followers were rather advanced, and mixed religion with science. They developed a detailed scale to express different colors, and thought that these different colors were indications of different kinds of fortune.[1]

They believed that each person was born with a certain finite amount of bad luck, and for them a poor life was a sign of fortune yet to come. For this reason Sazed preached the Astalsi religion to Vin, given that Vin already had been through a lot during her life.[1]


  • Astalsi was a motivation for Warbreaker.[2]
  • The Astalsi and Dadradah religions are "branches of a more ancient religion".[3]
