Aimia is an island nation/kingdom separated from the rest of Roshar by the Aimian Sea.
Scouring of AimiaEdit
Aimia was recently scoured of most of its people, likely in warring over the valuable creatures known as lanceryn. When the last lanceryn was killed, it was assumed that there were no surviving beasts with gemhearts on Roshar until the chasmfiends of the Shattered Plains were discovered.
Fauna of AimiaEdit
Most 'things' - inclusive of creatures such as the lanceryn - from Aimia, are quite odd, and are also now very rare since the Scouring.
Aimians are not human. There are two races of Aimians: Siah and Dysian. However, they both have deep blue, crystalline eyes and blue fingernails. They cast shadows the wrong way - toward light, instead of away from it. All Aimians can change the markings on their skin at will. This talent can be used to take notes.
- Axies the Collector - A scholar studying spren. His first appearance is as he's waking up, still drunk in an alleyway in Kasitor, Iri.
- Arclo - An allegedly mad philosopher living in Yeddaw, Tashikk, where Lift meets him. Arclo has a body comprised of cremlings and is one of the Sleepless.
- The Cook - Nameless as yet, she's presumed to be a member of the Sleepless who poisons the sailors, and Kaza, aboard the First Dreams, to keep humans from discovering Akinah. Her body then proceeds to breakdown into cremlings before she transcends to smoke.
↑This is because she was beginning to see/experience Shadesmar. As her Nahel bond first emerged, her connection to the Cognitive Realm strengthened. This is first shown by her shadow behaving as it does in Shadesmar, and serves as a build up to her first 'full-dive' experience later in the Prologue.
