”Sometimes I wonder if the Lifebrother himself sent you to me.
The Lifebrother is a god figure from Rosharan mythology that Taravangian references. Szeth indicates that he believes the Lifebrother to be Vorin, but no other Vorins have mentioned him, putting this in doubt. It seems clear, however, that the Lifebrother is not Shin.
Taravangian wonders if the Lifebrother sent Szeth to him. Why Taravangian associates the Lifebrother with his circumstances regarding Szeth is not clear. He seems to regard gaining a Truthless as a lucky event, especially since he speaks Szeth's native tongue. This means he could associate the Lifebrother with good fortune or something similar. Szeth seems to consider the Lifebrother's involvement to be related to the bloody nature of Szeth's work, indicating the Lifebrother may be a more bloodthirsty figure.
