I’ve ... been remembering what it was like when Relador, my old knight, died. How it made me sleep for so many years, straight through the Recreance. I keep wondering, will that happen to me again?

—Sylphrena to Kaladin[1]

Relador is the Windrunner that was bonded to Sylphrena before the Recreance.[1]

History[edit]

Relador was a kindly, elderly man. Syl bonded him soon after she was "born" as one of the first honorspren created by the Stormfather.[2] Due to his advanced age, Syl believed that he should not have been fighting in the Desolations, and he was indeed killed in his first battle.[3][1] Upon his death, his bond with Syl was broken and she experienced significant trauma, including pain and memory loss.[3] Because of her relative youth, she was not able to weather the loss of her knight; she instead felt so alone that she lost herself and began to drift until she went to "sleep".[2][1]

Legacy[edit]

Due to Relanor's death, Syl was not bonded when the other knights and spren soon decided to break their bonds. She was therefore the only honorspren who did not become a deadeye on the Day of Recreance.[4] Her slumber lasted around one thousand years, until she was found by the Stormfather.[2]

Although Syl actively tried to forget the pain of losing Relador, her bond with Kaladin helped restore her memories,[5] and she was able to recall bits and pieces of her former knight, including being with him in Urithiru.[3] She realized that she could draw on her difficult experience to try and help Kaladin with his depression.[3]
