Jerick is a character from the unpublished work Dragonsteel Prime.[1]

Behind the Scenes[edit]

Jerick was one of the first characters that Brandon Sanderson created, appearing in the very first story he wrote in his mid-teens.[1] He was originally named "Rick",[1] and at one point he was an elf.[2] He was a hero character that was falsely accused of murder;[1] Brandon later cited him as an example of a "flawless hero" in his writing who did not have internal struggles like those of Vin or Dalinar.[3]

Brandon has mentioned including Jerick as part of a rewritten Dragonsteel series on several occasions over the years,[4][1] but this would not occur until after the completion of The Stormlight Archive.[5] Because characters and plot points were cannibalized from Dragonsteel Prime to improve The Way of Kings,[6][7] Jerick's character arc would need to be significantly changed.[8]
