The Order of Elsecallers was an order of the Knights Radiant on Roshar.[1]

The Elsecallers were Surgebinders who used the Surges of Transformation and Transportation[1], and they absorbed Stormlight from gems. They formed a Nahel Bond with Inkspren.[2] So far, it is known that the Elsecallers had the power to Soulcast and to "Elsecall," a use of the Transportation Surge which allows physical travel between Realms.


They were the prime liaisons with the great ones of the spren.[3]

They were considered prodigiously benevolent by the author of the book Words of Radiance.[3]

Known Elsecallers[edit]

Ideals of the Elsecallers[edit]

The Ideals of the Knights Radiant, also known as the Immortal Words, are a set of rules by which the Knights Radiant lived. The First Ideal, identical for all orders of the Knights Radiant, is used as their motto. Each order of the Knights Radiant had additional four ideals that were unique to each order.

The First Ideal[edit]

Life before death, strength before weakness, journey before destination.

Transforms any material into any of one of the ten essences of the Soulcaster's choice.[5]


Transport oneself into or out of Shadesmar in the flesh. The full extent of this ability is not yet known.


As to the other orders that were inferior in this visiting of the far realm of spren, the Elsecallers were prodigiously benevolent, allowing others as auxiliary to their visits and interactions; though they did never relinquish their place as prime liaisons with the great ones of the spren; and the Lightweavers and Willshapers both also had an affinity to the same, though neither were true masters of that realm.
