“Fiksin was a boot-licker, not a scholar.”
Fiksin is a scholar of Dawnchant on Roshar.
Urv said Fiksin concluded that all Dawnchant books came from a central location, so Ellista's effort in recording where each text was found was not worthwhile. However, Ellista discarded that notion and insulted Fiksin, claiming Fiksin was not a true scholar. Then, she provided evidence that the Dawnchant writing system was used all across Roshar.
