'They lived out in the wilds, always awaiting the Desolation--or sometimes, a foolish child who took no heed for the night’s darkness.'
A child's tale, yes, but this quote from Shadows Remembered seems to hint at the truth I seek. See page 82, the fourth tale.”— excerpt from the journal of Jasnah Kholin
Shadows Remembered was a book on Roshar full of children's tales about the Voidbringers. The unnamed female author had been curious about the folktales of the darkeyes and had spent years collecting them.
Shallan Davar noticed that Jasnah Kholin had been reading the book, piquing her interest; Shallan later visited the Palanaeum to look for it because she thought it would probably be a philosophical work about a historical murder. After finding the book, Shallan was disappointed by its seemingly mundane content. However, Jasnah's notes indicate that she did not dismiss any mythology about the Voidbringers, as there was always a possibility that folktales could contain elements of truth.
