Spook is a skaa Misting on Scadrial in the Final Empire and works in Kelsier's crew. His original name is Jedal, after his father,[1] but goes by Lestibournes before Kelsier gives him his nickname of Spook. The name Lestibournes is a reference to the Eastern street slang phrase, 'lefting I'm born', which means 'I've been abandoned'.[2] He is a Tineye, and is Clubs' nephew.[3] He is fifteen during the Collapse.[4] He mentions to Beldre that in his family it had been his grandfather who had had noble blood. Although it is not mentioned explicitly it is likely that it was his grandfather on his mothers side, as Clubs was also an Allomancer. He also mentions that he never knew his grandfather, having grown up on the streets.[5]

The Skaa rebellion[edit]

During the skaa rebellion Spook is mainly involved as a sentry or lookout for the crew's hideout. He participates in the crew's planning sessions, but rarely contributes to them. He becomes infatuated with Vin and tries to court her, but she does not reciprocate his feelings and instead becomes romantically involved with Elend.

Siege of Luthadel[edit]

The rest of Kelsier's crew asks Spook to help them lead Elend and Vin away from Luthadel so that they would not be killed in the siege. He leads them away to the Terris mountains under the pretense of showing Vin to the Well of Ascension. Vin and Elend eventually realize that they have been tricked, and Vin is able to return and save Luthadel.

Urteau[edit]

During his stay at Urteau, he becomes an Allomantic savant, flaring tin all the time, to spy on Quellion and Beldre.[6] He is corrupted by Ruin with a Hemalurgic spike[7],which causes him to have visions of Kelsier and grants him the ability to burn pewter. He eventually realizes this and pulls the spike out of himself.[8] He is later called the Survivor of the Flames.[9]

The Final Ascension[edit]

After the Final Ascension, he leads the survivors into the new world created by Sazed and is given the full powers of a Mistborn.[10] However, he does not have the strength of a lerasium Mistborn, but a Mistborn of the strength of a typical Allomancer around the end of The Final Empire. Sazed also heals the damage Spook had done to himself by becoming a tin Savant. Spook was referred to as the Lord Mistborn. It is not clear what his role in that early government is, but he is clearly very prominent and powerful, judging by the fact that his Eastern street slang becomes known as High Imperial. However, Spook is confirmed to be a "stud" after the Final Ascension,[11] having over a dozen children.[12] It can be assumed that Spook eventually had a lasting relationship with Beldre and went on to become Lord Mistborn.[Citation needed]

He is visited at some point by the cognitive shadow of Kelsier, who says they should work together to unravel the mysteries of the Cosmere, use the spikes from Koloss to make Spook a Hemalurgic and bring Kelsier back to the Physical Realm.

Steris implies that Spook ruled as an emperor for a century before stepping down from power.[13] Marasi later refers to him as a "governor" who ruled for a century.[14]
