The Stump is a woman who runs the Tashi's Light Orphanage in Yeddaw. She is also a Radiant of currently unknown Order, though as she can perform Regrowth she is likely a Truthwatcher or an Edgedancer.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

The Stump is an elderly woman who is very stern[1]. Many of the children in the orphanage don't like her and neither do most of the surrounding urchins[1].


She runs the orphanage and seems to have done so for some time, and it is possible she even founded it. She was known to run a money laundering scheme that involved exchanging donations to the orphanage with dun spheres[2]. She had been unconsciously using her spheres' Stormlight to heal sick urchins in her care, who she then mistakenly accuses of only pretending to be sick. After learning of her true nature, the charges against her are dismissed by the Prime Aquasix on behalf of Lift[3].

When Nale instructs his Skybreakers to hunt down a Radiant in Yeddaw, they mistakenly think it was Arclo. In truth, Nale was after the Stump. After a brief altercation involving Lift, the Herald stabs the Stump but does not kill her immediately, in order to lure out Lift, who then heals her after Nale abandons his hunt for Radiants.[4]
