”Smoke curled from the occasional patches of growth or heaps of burning corpses. Even some sections of rock smoldered. The Dustbringers had done their work well.
The Dustbringers are Surgebinders who used the Surges of Division and Abrasion, and they absorbed Stormlight from gems. So far it is not known what powers the Dustbringers had, although it is likely they had the ability to ignite objects.
Also known as the Releasers, they claimed to have been misjudged by the people because of the nature of their powers and the similarity in their name to the Voidbringers.
There are no known Dustbringers at this time.
Ideals of the Dustbringers
The Ideals of the Knights Radiant, also known as the Immortal Words, are a set of rules by which the Radiants lived. The First Ideal, identical for all orders of the Radiants, is used as their motto. Each of the Radiant Orders then had an additional four ideals that were unique to each order.
The First Ideal
”Life before death, strength before weakness, journey before destination.— The First Ideal of the Knights Radiant
The Dustbringers use the Surges of Division and Abrasion.
Abrasion allows the user to be completely free of friction allowing them to move without impediment. It has been shown to allow the surgebinder to slide across surfaces.
”And when they were spoken of by the common folk, the Releasers claimed to be misjudged because of the dreadful nature of their power; and when they dealt with others, always were they firm in their claim that other epithets, notably "Dustbringers," often heard in the common speech, were unacceptable substitutions, in particular for their similarity to the word "Voidbringers." They did also exercise anger in great prejudice regarding it, though to many who speak, there was little difference between these two assemblies.
