Weedfingers is a Dzhamarian Bloodsealer that helps imprison Shai during the Forgery of Emperor Ashravan's soul.[1]

Appearance & Personality[edit]

He is a white-haired young man with milky white skin, red eyes, faintly translucent lips and long fingers. He often wears robes and a cloak, walking with unnatural litheness.[2]

He carries a crude bone stamp with him and keeps some "pet" skeletals crafted from the skeletons of the dead.[2]

Gaotona regards him as as a loyal, discreet and effective servant.[2] The guardsmen are wary of him and bully him.[citation needed]


There are ... times when one must accept the aid of darkness in order to contain a greater darkness.

He is brought into the Rose Palace by Gaotona in order to craft wards with his Bloodsealing abilities to imprison Shai in a small room. He requests Shai's bones as his only payment.[2] Every morning he would visit her cell to renew his mark on the door.[3] Sometimes he arrived late which Shai noticed as a possible escape route.[4]

He has a lover in Dzhamar who wrote him letters. The arrival of those letters woke him up in the morning, which is why he came on time to stamp Shai.[5] When he didn't get news from home, he drank which causes him to arrive later to renew the spell.[6]

When Shai escapes from the Palace, he attempts to capture her with his skeletals, but fails and is wounded by Shai.[7][expand]


"Weedfingers" is an insult directed at the Bloodsealer himself. Peter Ahlstrom believes the word probably means something similar to "butterfingers".[citation needed]
