The Eila Stele is an ancient text on Roshar.

An ancient text written in the Dawnchant by the Dawnsingers. For a long time the Dawnsingers were thought to be spren, but after the Eila Stele was translated, it is revealed that the Dawnsingers were actually the ancestors of the singers. It is revealed that the first Voidbringers were actually humans.[1]

Syl says to Kaladin that humans were once of Odium but later became of Honor.[citation needed]

They came from another world, using powers that we have been forbidden to touch. Dangerous powers, of spren and Surges. They destroyed their lands and have come to us begging. We took them in, as commanded by the gods. What else could we do? They were a people forlorn, without a home. Our pity destroyed us. For their betrayal extended even to our gods: to spren, stone, and wind. Beware the otherworlders. The traitors. Those with tongues of sweetness, but with minds that lust for blood. Do not take them in. Do not give them succor. Well were they named Voidbringers, for they brought the void. The empty pit that sucks in emotion. A new god. Their god. These Voidbringers know no songs. They cannot hear Roshar, and where they go, they bring silence. They look soft, with no shell, but they are hard. They have but one heart, and it cannot ever live.
— Eila Stele[1]
