”The chaining of a Shadowblaze, fourth entity removed, is an often indeterminable process, and the bindagent should consider wisely the situation before making any decision regarding the vessels to be indentured.—Origins of Power
A Shadowblaze is a chalk creature that, when bound to a human, bestows Rithmatic powers upon said human. They appear to those who become Rithmatists during their inception. Joel for some reason saw a Shadowblaze, but did not become a Rithmatist. Unlike chalklings, Shadowblazes do not need to be affixed to a two-dimensional surface. They have the appearance of primitive cave drawings, and are roughly man-shaped.
Discussion of the Shadowblazes' role in the inception ceremony is strictly taboo with non-Rithmatists.
It has yet to be reviewed.
