Jasnah's Soulcaster is a fake Soulcaster. It is used to disguise the fact that Jasnah Kholin has an innate ability to Soulcast.[1]

Jasnah's use of the Soulcaster exacerbated her conflict with the [Vorin Church], as they maintain a monopoly on the use and control over Soulcasters, and her Soulcaster was to all apperances, the only Soulcaster outside their control. This monopoly is likely in order to protect the secrets of the Soulcaster - including the toll it takes on the user. Many members of the church have attempted to remove the Soulcaster from her posession - either through bribery, coercion, or theft.

Jasnah's open and notorious use of the Soulcaster made her the only viable target for Shallan Davar, who needed to steal a functional Soulcaster to return to the Ghostbloods.


Jasnah's Soulcaster could not Soulcast any of the essances, as it was essentially a hollow shell. The gems within were used by Jasnah as a repository of stormlight that fueled her own Soulcasting.
