    Interview: Jan, 2012

    midwestredditor (

    Of course these are going to be spoiler-tastic.

    How are there kandra and koloss? Kandra especially, since they did their "mass suicide" thing at the end of the original trilogy.

    Brandon Sanderson (

    The nice thing about the kandra for me in the narrative was that, though removing their spikes turns them feral, you can always stick those spikes back in. TenSoon feared that this was the end of his people, and it could have been, if those spikes hadn't gone back in quickly. As it was, there were costs. Time spent without spikes causes a kandra's memories to deteriorate, and some that were left a relatively long time were essentially reborn as new people. But the race survived, even if it is unlikely that their numbers will be added to.


    Thank you very much for answering my questions!

    If I may be allowed a follow-up question: Did TenSoon survive, then (as the TenSoon who experienced growth under Vin)?

    (If it's not spoiler-tastic to the series, this is something I might share with my fiancee. TenSoon was one of her favorite characters. You, uh, kinda killed most of her favorites.)


    Yes, though he did lose some things.

    Interview: Oct, 2008

    Dalenthas (15 October 2008)

    Was TenSoon more susceptible to Ruin's powers than the other Kandra because he took OreSeur's Blessings?

    Brandon Sanderson (16 October 2008)

    Yes, he was. However, the Blessing of Presence actually enhanced his mind to make him more resistant, so they balanced out.

    Interview: Oct, 2008

    Qarlin (16 October 2008)

    I'm sad Ten Soon never got to talk to Vin again, since it was apparent they both missed each other.

    Brandon Sanderson (17 October 2008)

    Remember that TenSoon, with spikes, can communicate more easily with those on the other side....

    Interview: Dec 6th, 2014


    How did TenSoon overpower OreSeur if TenSoon had the Blessing of Potency?

    Brandon Sanderson (Paraphrased)

    "TenSoon is wily!"

    There are also some drugs that affect kandra bodies.

    Do Nightblood and TenSoon have the same voice?

    Brandon Sanderson

    You read Nightblood and TenSoon with the same voice, okay. Sure… Suuuure… Yes they totally can.

    Interview: Apr 24th, 2016


    Has TenSoon ever left Scadrial?

    Brandon Sanderson

    More RAFO. I believe I have said there are Kandra on other worlds, but I have not said if one was TenSoon.

    Interview: Dec 3rd, 2016


    Does TenSoon look like an Irish Wolfhound (which is how I've seen a lot of people draw him) or more like an actual wolf?

    Brandon Sanderson

    He looks more like a large wolf-like dog, such as a husky or something (though more wolflike than a husky, he was just using that as an example)
