Appearance and Personality
Ornament has a delicate and lacelike head pattern. She has a squeaky voice. She has a smooth gliding movement similar to other Cryptics. This is in contrast to Pattern, who has a bouncy movement.
In the Physical Realm, Ornament usually rides on the inside of Beryl's shirt near her skin, as she does not like being seen. She likes to watch Shallan draw along with other Cryptics. She makes excited noises and bounces up and down while doing so.
Like other Cryptics, Ornament has trouble understanding nuances of human speech and takes things more literally than intended. She has a limited Alethi vocabulary and does not understand the word 'Nitwit'.
Ornament was with Beryl on the journey to Lasting Integrity. She had a conversation with Shallan and other Cryptics. When Shallan suspected Beryl was a spy for Ghostbloods, she talked with Ornament to try to get information about Beryl. However Shallan was unable to get any useful information out of Ornament.
