Surge7 Ideal-Essence-7
The order's two Surges: Transformation (top left),

Transportation (bottom left) and Ideal/Essence.

Elsecallers are one of the ten orders of Knights Radiant. Elsecallers share Surges with the orders of Lightweavers (Transformation) and Willshapers (Transportation). Battar is the patron of this order.


As to the other orders that were inferior in this visiting of the far realm of spren, the Elsecallers were prodigiously benevolent, allowing others as auxiliary to their visits and interactions; though they never did relinquish their place as prime liaisons with the great ones of the spren; and the Lightweavers and Willshapers both also had an affinity to the same, though neither were the true masters of that realm.

–From Words of Radiance, chapter 6, page 2[1]


As indicated above, the Elsecallers were prodigiously benevolent with regard to visiting the spren in their realm, allowing others to join them in this. They were the prime liaisons with the great ones amongst the spren.[1]

Known ElsecallersEdit

Jasnah Kholin, through Ivory, belongs to this order.[2]

Immortal WordsEdit

All Elsecallers must speak the Immortal Words of the Knights Radiant, which are a set of rules by which Radiants live. The First Ideal, identical for all orders of Radiants, is used as their motto. Each of the Radiant orders then had an additional number of Ideals that were unique to each order. For the Elsecallers, these Ideals are as follows:

The First IdealEdit

Also known as the Ideal of Radiance -

Life before death, strength before weakness, journey before destination.[3]
  • To date, it remains unknown as to just when Jasnah may have spoken these words, let alone those of their ensuing Ideals, affording her the powers of an Elsecaller, given her bond with her spren, Ivory.
