Bisig is a member of Bridge Four.[2]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Bisig is thin with an angular face and doesn't speak much.[3] Despite being quite reserved, he is close to becoming betrothed.[4]

Attributes and Abilities[edit]

As a Windrunner squire, Bisig has limited Surgebinding abilities when he is within thirty miles of Kaladin,[5] including healing powers and flight through the use of Basic Lashings.[1][6]

History[edit]

Bisig was a member of Bridge Four under Torol Sadeas; it is not known why he was assigned to bridge duty. He was the last member of Bridge Four to join in with the reforms that Kaladin brought, and likely only conformed because of Rock's and Teft's threats, not out of loyalty.[2] After the crew gave Rock a razor as a gift, he was one of the two men to get hugged by the Horneater.[7]

Bisig was one of the guards during the highstorm prior to the balcony collapsing on Elhokar, but was dismissed prior to the actual attack. When he got back to the barracks, he joined in with the others to discuss how they missed carrying their bridge.[8] He and most of the rest of Bridge Four were among the expedition to find Stormseat.[9] Bisig survived the Battle of Narak, although he lost the use of his right hand to a Shardblade wound during Szeth's attack on Dalinar.[10]

His upcoming marriage was one of several situations that Sigzil brought up to Kaladin in order to get him to think about how he would accommodate the men as they branched out in different directions from being simple slaves.[4] Bisig became a Windrunner squire to Kaladin along with the rest of Bridge Four, which granted him access to Stormlight and the ability to heal his hand injury.[1] He crashed into the ceiling during practice one time while trying to imitate Lopen, prompting Skar to feel jealous of his ability to draw in Stormlight at all.[6]

When Taravangian sent an assassin to recover Jezrien's Honorblade from Bridge Four, Bisig was badly wounded in the conflict, suffering another Shardblade injury, this time to his arm. He survived, however, and came to long enough to describe how the perpetrator had been wearing Teft's lieutenant's coat.[11][12]

Trivia[edit]

  • Bisig is a cameo for a friend or family member of Brandon's.[13] A possible inspiration is a couple named Geoff and Rachel Biesinger who are mentioned in the acknowledgements of The Way of Kings.[14]
