The Releasers is the name by which the Dustbringers prefer to be called.[1]

And when they were spoken of by the common folk, the Releasers claimed to be misjudged because of the dreadful nature of their power; and when they dealt with others, always were they firm in their claim that other epithets, notably "Dustbringers," often heard in the common speech, were unacceptable substitutions, in particular for their similarity to the word "Voidbringers." They did also exercise anger in great prejudice regarding it, though to many who speak, there was little difference between these two assemblies.

–From Words of Radiance, chapter 17, page 11

Dustbringers are one of the Ten Orders of Knights Radiant. They were first mentioned by Kalak in the Prelude of The Way of Kings.[2]

Smoke curled from the occasional patches of growth or heaps of burning corpses. Even some sections of rock smoldered. The Dustbringers had done their work well.

–Kalak's thoughts in the wake of Aharietiam[2]

Dustbringers share the Surges of Skybreakers (Division) and Edgedancers (Abrasion). Chana is the patron of this Order.
