Within a heartbeat, Alezarv was there, crossing a distance that would have taken more than four months to travel by foot.
—Another folktale, this one recorded in Among the Darkeyed, by Calinam. Page 102. Stories of instantaneous travel and the Oathgates pervade these tales.[1]

Calinam is a scholar on Roshar.[1]

History[edit]

Calinam wrote the book Among the Darkeyed, which appears to be a compilation of darkeye folktales.[1] During the course of her research, Princess Jasnah Kholin noted that this book contained many mentions of Oathgates and instantaneous travel. It seems likely that this served as a piece of evidence for Jasnah that Stormseat might still have a functioning Oathgate connected to Urithiru.[2]


After the loss of the Wind's Pleasure, Brightlady Shallan Davar discovered the mentions of Oathgates from Among the Darkeyed in Jasnah's notes.[3] This helped her to realize that Jasnah had likely been looking for an Oathgate on the Shattered Plains.
