In {{Rosharan date|1174|2}} [[Kaladin]], [[Shallan]], [[Adolin]], [[Sylphrena]], [[Pattern]], and [[Azure]] passed through Celebrant after getting stuck in Shadesmar following the [[Siege of Kholinar]]. The group arrived on a ship captained by [[Ico]]. They purchased clothing, weapons, and food in the market. Shallan sought passage on ships heading toward [[Cultivation's Perpendicularity]] or [[Thaylen City]], but the group was ultimately forced to leave swiftly aboard ''[[Honor's Path]]'', pursued by Fused.
In the market, the three bought rations, changes of clothing and two harpoons. Kaladin felt drawn to a painting in an art stall which he interpreted as depicting a kneeling figure with nine shadows, representing the [[Unmade]] and [[Odium]]'s champion. The owner of the stall, a Reacher woman, told him that it was a piece from the [[Court of Gods]], painted by [[Nenefra]] and intended for a divinity, and that it was rare that a painting from the Court reached the market before being burned. She also mentions that Nenefra's masterworks appear different to each person that sees them.

Shallan, Pattern, and Azure quickly learn that most spren had stopped traveling to Cultivation's Perpendicularity and Thaylen City because of the presence of Voidspren warships demanding tributes in those areas. Shallan thought they could also go to the [[Shattered Plains]] and found a willing ship heading east towards [[Freelight]], however they could not negotiate because there would be an inspection soon and were told to return later. While returning to the meeting place, Azure saw a Fused talking to Ico on his ship, back at the registrar they learned that Celebrant was being ruled by Voidspren and shortly after, [[Kyril]], one of the Fused officers, set fire to Ico's ship for harboring the humans.

Meanwhile, in the market, Syl was recognized by passing spren and revealed to Kaladin that there was a bounty on returning her to [[Lasting Integrity]] for having run away to the Physical Realm to bond with a human, and even though the [[Stormfather]] had forgiven her, most spren didn't know or care about that.

Back at the registrar Shallan hid them with illusions of sailors she had sketched earlier and managed to avoid detection by Kyril, who entered the building to order for the fire to be put out.

At the market, Kaladin sensed that something was wrong and pulled Adolin and Syl into a tent, just in time for the Fused official to fly past them. Heading to the docks, Syl showed them an honorspren ship and tried to hide once more. Kaladin, hearing one of Ico's sailors speaking in [[Alethi]] realized those were Shallan, Adolin and Pattern, hidden by the illusions. Reunited, the group saw that the only ship that was willing to take them had just left the docks, fleeing from the city, and tried to come up with a plan.

==Trivia==
Syl, telling them she had an idea, ran towards the honorspren ship, revealing her disguise and screaming for attention. One of the sailors, seeing this, realized who she was and dropped the gangway, allowing the group to climb onto the deck, where Syl was immediately bound and imprisoned. As the ship pulled away, Kyril reached the docks and saw them getting on it, however, he did not chase after them and they were able to escape the city, which Kaladin took to mean that honorspren gave the Fused pause.{{book ref|sa3|102}}

Celebrant is a city in the Sea of Lost Lights in Roshar's subastral of the Cognitive Realm.[1] It is located on the island counterpart to the Sea of Spears in the Physical Realm.[2][3] The city is a major trading port and prominent city in Shadesmar, and is currently ruled by voidspren.[4]

Geography

Celebrant is located on the western side of the island counterpart to the Sea of Spears in the Physical Realm, in the Sea of Lost Lights.[5] Angerspren roam the region outside the city.[6]

Landmarks

Celebrant is organized in a similar fashion to that of a human city, though not as densely populated, with a market and docks. There are towers in the center of the city used to tell the time by a set of fires that burn in vertical holes. The buildings are each constructed of a variety of materials, like differently colored bricks or different types of stone.[4]

Docks

The docks are longer than the city itself, to accommodate for its status as a trading hub. Ships are made to berth along stone piers, where braces beneath the sea of spheres support the vessels after their mandras have been taken away. Rows of long warehouses mark the shore along the docks, obscuring a view of the city.[6] The dock registrar, housed in a blue-painted building, keeps records of ships and their travels and manages inspections. At the adjacent moneychanger, Stormlight can be traded for notes of exchange.[6]

Market

The market is comprised mostly of open stalls with goods piled on tables. There are stalls that sell clothing, building materials, weapons, food, and art. The prices, based largely on the item's permanence in Shadesmar, differ greatly from those of items in the Physical Realm. Most food is typically sold in cans. One art store offers artwork for sale from places as far off as Nalthis.[4]

History

Celebrant used to be a free city state, though it was taken over by voidspren during the True Desolation. However, they didn't have firm control over the city, being present mostly through a few Fused officials.[4]

In Nan 1174 Kaladin, Shallan, Adolin, Sylphrena, Pattern, and Azure passed through Celebrant after getting stuck in Shadesmar following the Siege of Kholinar. The group arrived on a ship captained by Ico. They purchased clothing, weapons, and food in the market. Shallan sought passage on ships heading toward Cultivation's Perpendicularity or Thaylen City, but the group was ultimately forced to leave swiftly aboard Honor's Path, pursued by Fused.

Culture

Celebrant is a melting pot of spren, with many different kinds of true spren living within the city. These include cultivationspren, ashspren, Reachers, inkspren, and Cryptics. There are also spren with skin that looks like stone with molten light shining from within and a spren made out of smoke. Humans are very rare and tend to draw attention.[4]

Fashion among the spren is eclectic--drawing from human styles across all of Roshar.[4]

Politics

Celebrant was a free city until voidspren took partial control of it in the initial months of the True Desolation. Some city official are voidspren, while the rest pledge compliance. Two Fused, including Kyril, visit the city on occasion to perform inspections.[4]

Though the spren have generally accepted, some quietly oppose Odium's rule.[4]

Trivia

Oathbringer chapter 102 is titled "Celebrant."[4]
