The sun hadn't quite set, but in the darkening sky, stars had begun to appear around Taln's Scar. The Tear hung just above the horizon, a star much brighter than the others, named for the single tear Reya was said to have shed.

Words of Radiance Chapter Thirty-one[1]

Reya is a woman from Rosharan mythology.

She is said to have shed a single tear, which is the namesake for the Tear, a star much brighter than the others.[1]


According to Peter Ahlstrom, Reya is someone important.[2] It was theorized that Reya is the name of Cultivation's Vessel;[3] however, Brandon has directly stated that she is not.[4] We now know Cultivation's Vessel is Koravellium Avast.
