    Does SzethsonsonVallano's Surgebinding require HonorSpren like Kaladin's?

    No, it does not. (Hm....) Gold star to you.

    Are all wind spren really just unbonded honor spren?

    Brandon Sanderson

    No, they are cousins to one another, but not exactly the same thing.

    Interview: Mar 17th, 2012


    A question related to that. Thereís an idea going around that all the spren that can Nahel Bond, all Knight Radiant spren are called honorspren, and then Nohadon talks specifically about honorspren. Is that the case? You know, is it just the Windrunner spren, or is it all the spren?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Iím going to deal with this in the next book. So Iíll just go ahead and let it be a literal RAFO. It is coming.

    (interruption, leading Brandon to lose his train of thought)

    So what we are dealing with here is that all Spren are indeed all pieces of the one who has gone, so those spren are all- except the Windrunner spren, the spren like Syl, have certain umm.


    Nohadon mentioned that "All the spren arenít as discerning as honorspren."


    So there has been dissension among them about who gets to call themselves honorspren, if that makes sense, and there is some disagreement among scholars about which ones are really, you know "This is what defines an honorspren".

    But the spren you are running into are all (something) of either Honor or Cultivation, or some mixture between them. And you can usually tell the ones that are more Honor, and the ones that are more Cultivation. That should be able to be (something).

    Interview: Feb 17th, 2016


    For all the spren, like the honorspren and the liespren, Iíve noticed that all of the characters, the honorspren have been girls and all the liespren have been boys. Is that just Ďcause all the people who attract liespren are girls and all the other people--

    Brandon Sanderson

    So itís not a one to one ratio of people who are more likely to attract a spren of the opposite gender.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Yeah Iíll delve into it eventually in the books. Maybe just obliquely, but there is a reason for it.
