The TimeTellers are a Scadrian political movement.

They claim neutrality in interplanetary conflicts. They are made up of scientists who wish to understand the mysteries of the cosmere.[1] Zellion suspects they are secretly an arm of the Scadrian military who work to develop tech in order to stay ahead in the accelerating interplanetary arms race.[1]

The TimeTellers wear small triangular metal ornaments decorated with red enamel on the sides of their faces.[1]


A group of TimeTellers landed on Canticle in order to study its sun and core, and how they interact with one another.[1]


While on Canticle they did the following discoveries.

  • the Investiture in the star gets ‘sucked’ down into the planet’s core.
  • how to recharge Sunhearts.
  • how to create Cinderhearts.
