Ali-daughter-Hasweth is a Shin scholar.[1] She is the sister of the Shin logicmaster, Shauka-daughter-Hasweth.[2][3]

Shallan found that the Shin scholars were amongst the most interesting to read as their perspectives on the rest of Roshar could be so frank, so different.[1]

Shallan references one of her works on Urithiru:

Urithiru was the connection to all nations, and, at times, our only path to the outside world, with its stones unhallowed.[1]


This reference long provided the proverbial title for the expected third novel in The Stormlight Archive. Such is no longer the case as Oathbringer will be the title of this novel.
