Let me no longer hurt! Let me no longer weep! Dai-Gonarthis! The Black Fisher holds my sorrow and consumes it!

Tanatesach 1173, 28 seconds pre-death. A darkeyed female street juggler. Note similarity to sample 1172-89.[1]

Dai-Gonarthis is believed to be one of the Unmade,[2] an ancient and terrible spren of Odium.[3] They also seem to be known as the Black Fisher.[1]

Hessi posits in Mythica that Dai-Gonarthis may have been involved in the scouring of Aimia, although she's unsure of the specifics. She also expresses uncertainty that they are one of the Unmade at all.[2] However, it seems likely that Dai-Gonarthis is truly the final Unmade, as Jezrien, in the guise of Ahu, refers to the Black Fisher together with two other Unmade—Re-Shephir and Moelach—during one of his conversations with Dalinar Kholin.[4] Additionally, the name Dai-Gonarthis is used in a Death Rattle collected by the Silent Gatherers in a manner similar to Death Rattles about the Unmade Re-Shephir and Yelig-nar.[1][5][6]


  • The name Dai-Gonarthis is most likely derived from Dagon, an ancient Canaanite deity later reimagined as a Lovecraftian sea god.[7]
