Haspers are a form of mollusk on Roshar.[1]

Appearance and Behavior[edit]

Haspers are comprised of two shells[2] that enclose a slimy interior.[3] These two shells open and close their shells in rhythm with one another.[1] Due to this motion haspers are often compared to tiny mouths that are breathing. At least some varieties of haspers have pearly shells.[1] They may be related to tiny snails.[2]

Haspers are creatures that appear to spend most, if not all of their life totally stationary.[2][4] They grow in clusters,[2] attached to the side of objects made of stone,[5] wood,[6] or on shalebark.[1] Haspers can be found in a wide variety of places across eastern Roshar, including the docks of Kharbranth,[6] Hearthstone,[2] and the chasms of the Shattered Plains.[7] They reproduce during the Weeping, with clusters seeming to grow out of nowhere.[2] It is unknown what haspers feed on.[6]
