”I will not lift the Blade against other listeners.—Sharefel
When Sharefel's listener family conquered one of the eight proper listener cities of the Shattered Plains, the defeated family relinquished the city's Shardplate and Shardblade to Sharefel's possession. On the day that Eshonai and several others first successfully adopted warform, they went to speak with him immediately afterwards, as one of the other listener families had come to try to win the city. Sharefel was astonished at their accomplishment and asked how they had done it; after proclaiming that he would do the same on the next highstorm, he asked which of the new warforms would take his Shards. Melu was the most eager to take them, but as Thude held her back, Eshonai realized that a fight might break out over the choice. She instead asked Sharefel to wear the Plate out when they went to speak to the attackers. He agreed, although he insisted that he would not attack them.
