There seems to be an impression I'm seeing sometimes that the Coppermind team is some kind of professional venture, When in fact it is less of a team and more of a herd of giraffes being vaguely pushed in a general direction by a herd of a slightly taller giraffes equipped with a map


Hi! I’m a slightly taller giraffe on the Coppermind, and I particularly work on articles from books that don’t normally get as much attention, particularly Cytoverse stuff. I’m Taln Fan or #1 Taln Fan on the forums and discord. I started out the Cosmere when my friend forced me to read The Way of Kings in summer 2020. By the end of the year I had read all of the Cosmere and most of the non-cosmere. In August of 2021 I got involved in the fandom, and shortly after started working on the Coppermind! Curse you Chaos

Though I occasionally work on Stormlight or Mistborn articles, most of my work is on Cytoverse articles. I’ve also done a lot of work on Lux and the Original. I like to focus on completing pages, or completing history sections.

Future Things to Work On[edit]


Notes to Self[edit]

  • Aunt Sydney, chapter 16? og
  • This is how you strikethrough

Questioner So, question about the Reckoners. In the beginning of Steelheart, Deathpoint kind of lazily points his finger at Steelheart. So, it didn't seem like he feared him very much at all. So, my question is, if he didn't fear him, then how come Steelheart wasn't affected by it?

Brandon Sanderson So, he didn't. He was trying to act cool. But that fear was there. At least, that's my explanation to myself. And it's part of why Steelheart makes the entrance in the way he does.

Gill Test  
Gill is a taynix that Jorgen discovers in a cavern along with several other taynix. Gill is of the yellow and blue variety of taynix, meaning he can use his Cytonic abilities to teleport. Gill is the first taynix besides Doomslug that FM ever sees, and at first she mistakes Gill for Doomslug.[1]

Gill has blue markings down the side of his face that almost look like gills, which leads to FM naming him Gill. Gill has a quieter voice than Doomslug, at least some of the time.[1]
