Tindwyl is a terriswoman from the Final Empire on Scadrial.[1]

Tindwyl is a Keeper of Terris and a member of the Synod.[2] She spent much of her life involuntarily working for the breeders, successfully transmitting Feruchemy to the next generation. This is considered a huge victory for the Synod, and during her time in the breeding programme she had very little chance to train her Feruchemy, although she was provided with copperminds to study and learn while locked away.[2]. During her time spent breeding she raised 15 girls[3]

In her time spent in Luthadel, she works on helping Elend improve his public image due to her specialty being in the history of great men.[1] She aids Sazed in studying the rubbing of the metal inscription and cross-referencing it with other works found in their copperminds.[4]

During the Siege of Luthadel she is placed in charge of Tin Gate as a back-up commander by Dockson, who does not trust the young commanders placed in charge to stand their ground.[5]. She is killed by Koloss during the battle.[6]

Despite Sazed's limitation, they fall in love while studying the inscription. He was devastated when she was killed.

Post-Catacendre, she becomes known as the Mother of Terris.[7]
