Vstim about Jasnah[1]

The gloomdancer is an unspecified creature in Thaylen mythology. It is considered fictitious by most Rosharan scholars as well as modern Thaylens, alongside sea hags and living heaps of cremlings.[1] However, as the latter have been proven to exist, it's unknown if the gloomdancer is pure fiction, real fact, or folk interpretation of a real being.

Vstim mentions it to Rysn when talking about Queen Jasnah's research into the Sleepless.[1]
