The Allomantic symbol for gold

Gold is the internal temporal pulling metal. An Allomancer burning gold is able to see who they could have been in the past, had they made different choices. Feruchemists can use gold to store health. When used as a Hemalurgic spike, gold is thought to steal temporal Feruchemy.

Allomantic Use[edit]

A gold Misting is known as a Augur. An Allomancer burning gold is able to see a hallucination of who the user could have been, known as a "gold shadow."[1] Due to the emotional stress associated with seeing one's alternate past, gold is not a very useful metal. Furthermore, touching the gold shadow while burning gold causes unpleasant side effects.[2]

Feruchemical Use[edit]

The Feruchemical symbol for gold

A gold Ferring is known as a Bloodmaker. Gold is used to store health. A goldmind can be tapped to both heal at an accelerated rate or to heal from wounds that would normally be fatal.[1] It is hard to fill a goldmind, due to the fact that it requires the Feruchemist to spend time sickly and weak. Gold does not heal diseases as efficiently as it heals wounds.[3]

Aluminum in a wound will make it impossible for the Bloodmaker to heal the injury around the metal for as long as it remains in the body.[4]

Damage to the soul, such as that caused by Hemalurgy, can be healed by Bloodmakers.[5]

Known Bloodmakers[edit]

  • Miles Dagouter he can also burn gold allomantically, meaning that he can compound his bloodmaking abiliities tenfold, making him almost impervious to any attack.

Hemalurgic Use[edit]

It is not currently known what gold's Hemalurgic property is. It is theorized that it steals Feruchemical Temporal powers.

Notes[edit]

  1. a b The Alloy of Law Ars Arcanum
  2. The Final Empire chapter 37
  3. Shadows of Self chapter 5
  4. the wound would not be able to heal around the aluminum, but once the aluminum came out, and was gone from the system, they would be okay.

  5. Using Feruchemy to heal the removed portion of soul. That's actually plausible, not so different from healing other kinds of soul-wounds.
