Chemoarish, the Dustmother, has some of the most varied lore surrounding her. The wealth of it makes sorting lies from truths extremely difficult. I do believe she is not the Nightwatcher, contrary to what some stories claim.

— From Hessi's Mythica, page 231[1]

Chemoarish is one of the Unmade,[1] an ancient and terrible spren of Odium.[2]


Little is known about Chemoarish, as she has not been known to be active at least since Aharietiam. She is well-remembered during the Era of Solitude, but a variety of myths and stories have grown up around her, obscuring the truth.[1] She is often referred to as the Dustmother in modern times, but she is also sometimes mistakenly conflated with the Nightwatcher, a spren of Cultivation. The people of Bavland swear by the Dustmother's name.[3]


  • The name Chemoarish is most likely derived from Chemosh, an ancient Middle-Eastern god.[4]
