”Re-Shephir, the Midnight Mother, giving birth to abominations with her essence so dark, so terrible, so consuming. She is here! She watches me die!— Death vision, Epigraph 58
Re-Shephir is an Unmade on Roshar, one of nine spren that exist as Splinters of Odium. She was discovered by Shallan Davar in Urithiru while Re-Shephir was imitating murders and violence that took place in the city, such as the murder of Sadeas. Re-Shephir seeks to understand humans via imitating their actions, though she seems most drawn to violent actions such as murder or stabbings. To this end she would kill Vedekar Perel in the same way as Adolin murdered Sadeas and injure Rock in the same fashion as Veil injured Ur, a Horneater thug. Based on Dalinar's Visions She is able to create creatures known as Midnight Essence.
She apparently was trapped somewhere in Urithiru and escaped but chose to hide in the tower.
During the confrontation in the library in Urithiru, Re-Shephir was attached to a pillar covered with cut gemstones. This appears to be how She created the feeling of Wrongness that filled the tower. Re-Shephir created Midnight Essence to protect her. Having previously been trapped by a Lightweaver She fled the tower in fear when confronted by Shallan. Her whereabouts are unknown.
