Prickletac or Twisted Spine is a type of plant native to the Shattered Plains of Roshar and other areas.[1]

Only the buds at the very ends of the limbs of a prickletac shrub are actually alive.[2] It is composed of a colony of tiny buds, each with a single retractable spine. Every new generation grows on top of the deceased generation below it. After a generation of prickletacs die, their remnants become stone-like, creating strong and inflexible limbs.[1]

Prickletac spreads when a limb gets too heavy and breaks off. The living buds from the broken limb are scattered and form new plants.[2]


Prickletac was inspired by barnacles and tree coral. [3]
