”I am a stick—Stick
Stick is a stick.
During the battle outside Thaylen City, Shallan thinks back to the battle she and Stick had all that time ago.
Stick is a confirmed member of the organizations B.A.R.K. and B.I.T.E., the former being worse than the latter.
Stick may be a worldhopper. He may have been the very stick that Raoden used to carve a line in the ground, repairing Elantris. Many theories have debased this completely and have instead resolved to believing that stick was the one who actually cast the spell to repair Elantris, and stick was likely the one who directed Raoden's teleportation spell to the precise and proper location. Stick may also be the stick that Vivenna used when practicing Awakening a rope. While the stick was removed from a tree, growing on trees may be a crucial aspect in Stick's worldhopping, as it is unlikely that Nalthis is Stick's original home. It is also possible that the stick could be used as a Hemalurgic spike. Conversely, Stick's extremely powerful Identity suggests that Stick might be a heavily charged aluminum metalmind. If so, it is also probably one of the most important characters in the cosmere. Stick is rumored to be the Survival Shard, although it may even be a reincarnation of Adonalsium himself. If nothing else, Stick is probably Jezrien returned. Hoid supposedly has been running from stick, as referenced in Words of Radiance. It is one of the most revered characters in the fandom. Do not mistake stick for twig. Twig is nothing but a dead branch.
Stick is a particularly self-aware stick. It is very stubborn and cannot be stopped by any power of mankind or Gods alike, let alone puny Shallan Davar.
