Bronze is the internal mental pushing metal. An Allomancer burning bronze is able to detect the presence of Allomancy being used nearby. Feruchemists can use bronze to store wakefulness, and when used as a Hemalurgic spike, bronze steals mental Allomancy.
The proper percentage of metals used in creating bronze for the Metallic Arts is seventy-five percent copper and twenty-five percent tin.
A bronze Misting is known as a Seeker. When an Allomancer burns bronze, he is able to detect nearby use of Allomancy. The Seeker feels pulses, like beats of a drum, emanating from the person burning a metal. The metals are grouped into fast and slow, pushing and pulling, and have their own signature feel. This is how it is known that bronze is a Pushing metal, while copper is Pulling. If someone were able to burn the amount of Bronze needed to become an Allomantic savant with the metal, they would be able to pierce copperclouds. A savant would also be able to tell the difference between regular Allomancy and Compounding.
It is possible to detect the use of Feruchemy by burning bronze. It is also theoretically possible to detect any Investiture actively being used.
A bronze Ferring is known as a Sentry. Bronze is used to store wakefulness. It allows the Feruchemist to stay awake for extended periods of time, or to heighten awareness. A Feruchemist filling a bronzemind becomes drowsy. It is the only type of metalmind a Feruchemist can store into while sleeping.
When used as a Hemalurgic spike, bronze steals mental Allomancy.
