The Scadrian System is the name given to the planetary system containing the Shardworld of Scadrial. It in addition to Scadrial, the system includes two gas giants, two dwarf planets, and a comet belt.[1]


The Mistborn series is set on the planet of Scadrial. The planet itself was created entirely by the Shards of Preservation and Ruin, who made their home here.[1] The planet's orbit has changed multiple times. At the onset of the Final Empire, Rashek used the power at the Well of Ascension to bring the planet nearer the sun in order to burn away the Deepness.[2] This necessitated the creation of ashmounts to block out the too-close sun. Harmony corrected the orbit to its current position upon his Ascension.[3]
