A mystery sent by Shishi.

Evi on the origins of spren[1]

Shishi is an entity mentioned by Evi Kholin, who attributes the mysterious circumstances by which spren do or do not appear to Shishi.[1]

It is unclear who or what Shishi is. It's most likely a being of Iriali religion or folk tradition; perhaps a different name or aspect of their deity, the One. Evi considers the mysteries of the natural world to be given to humankind by Shishi. As she later states that all mysteries are resolved once people rejoin the One, it's possible Shishi and the One are separate entities.[1]


  • Shishi sounds similar to the Chinese word 事实 (Shìshí), meaning "fact", which may or may not tie in with it being a giver of mysteries. It's also the same as the Japanese word for "lion".
