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] He also seems to be known as the Black Fisher.[1]

Little is known of Dai-gonarthis. Hessi posits in Mythica that it may have been somehow involved in the scouring of Aimia, although she's unsure of the specifics.[2] She also expresses uncertainty that it's a member of the Unmade at all. However, it does seem likely that Dai-gonarthis is truly the final Unmade, as in one of the death rattles collected by King Taravangian's Silent Gatherers, a dying woman mentions the name Dai-gonarthis in a manner similar to a death rattle about Re-Shephir, a confirmed Unmade.[1]

During one of his conversations with Dalinar Kholin, the mad Jezrien, in the guise of Ahu, also references the Black Fisher, lending further credibility to the theory that it is an important creature of Odium.[4]


  • The name Dai-Gonarthis is most likely derived from Dagon, an ancient Canaanite deity later reimagined as a Lovecraftian sea god.[5]
