Endowment is one of the sixteen Shards of Adonalsium. The Shard's Vessel is Edgli.[1] She is located on Nalthis and is the only Shard present on that world.[2]

Associated Magic[edit]

Endowment's magic system is Awakening, which matches its intent: Breath can be gifted (endowed) to others, and also used to impart "life" to inanimate objects.

Endowment is responsible for the Returned.[3] A Splinter of Endowment known as a divine Breath is what resurrects the Returned and grants them their abilities.[4]

Letters to Hoid[edit]

Endowment wrote the first Oathbringer letter to Hoid. She believes that Rayse is not a threat and is unsympathetic to the deaths of Aona and Skai, as they had broken their pact.


  • She is fine with her Breath being used to feed the Returned.[5]

The Tears of Edgli[edit]

The Tears of Edgli are a special flower that grows only in Hallandren[6] that come in a variety of colors and are more efficient when used as a source of color for Awakening.[7] They are related to Endowment,[8] and their connection to Awakening suggests they may contain some of her Investiture.
