Warning Book Spoiler: Significant plot details follow.

Known to be a member of the Ghostbloods, Shallan's mother and a 'friend' attempted to kill Shallan once they'd learned of her potential 'abilities'. Pattern, who had watched Shallan but remained unseen, then became a dirk-sized Shardblade, and Shallan killed both her mother and her mother's 'friend' with it.[1] Thereafter, Shallan's father pretended to have killed his wife to protect Shallan from further 'assassination attempts'. Shallan lost/blocked all memory of this event and only regained it near the end of Words of Radiance.[citation needed]
