    Interview: Mar 12th, 2015

    Hi Brandon and thanks for coming to answer our questions!

    As a women, I loved reading about Vin who was a strong female leading character in Mistborn. It's not something easily found in the fantasy world unfortunately. While I loved Vin, I felt pretty sad after reading about the swooning-over-an-older-man tripe that was Marasi in The Alloy of Law. It felt like kind of a 360 for me after reading about Vin.

    I really loved Mistborn and The Way of Kings was great, but I am just wondering if you are planning any more work with strong female leads?

    Brandon Sanderson (Reddit)


    Marasi was designed specifically to be a contrast to Vin, and to put her in a place where she really had some growth to do. I spent periods of time as a Marasi (though, in my case, swooning over women) when I was younger. I think most of us are like that at some point in our lives, and I like trying characters with different types of arcs and personalities, so I suggest giving her a little time.

    I have several stories in the works I think will fit this conversation, though when they come out will really depend on timing. The 1980's era Mistborn series also has a female lead, as does one of my YA projects.

    When Marasi goes into the carriage with the Soother & Rioter pair - were they really a Soother and a Rioter?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Why do you ask?


    I have a feeling that one of them was not an emotional Allomancer.

    Brandon Sanderson

    I believe that they were, yeah. Iím not gonna string you out on that one.

    Interview: Feb 25th, 2016


    In Alloy of Law, I noticed that when Marsh is talking to Marasi, he says that Wax is doing his brotherís work, is that referring to Harmony or Kelsier?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Thatís referring to Kelsier in that quote, in his opinion at the moment. I donít know if I agree with it. He feels that Wax is protecting the people, the little people, which was Kelsierís work. In his opinion, which is kind of lofty.
