”— Kalak's thoughts in the wake of AharietiamSmoke 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.
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. They always disliked being called Dustbringers and tried to get people to address them as Releasers, but this didn't fully work, since "the new name didn't catch on".
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
”— The First Ideal of the Knights RadiantLife before death, strength before weakness, journey before destination.
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.. Division gives the surgebinger the ability to burn carvings, as Malata carves a table using this surge. Division also works on living flesh. So far it is not known what other powers the Dustbringers had, although it is likely they had the ability to ignite objects.
