Awakening Analysis

Post by Mac » Tue Jan 23, 2018 12:11 pm

I went through Warbreaker and came up with some thoughts on Awakening, specifically Type III objects.

Here is the raw data.

Here is my analysis.

Short summary: Body focus seems to mean a lot.

People were talking about, why don't families just have a legacy of Breaths? It is mentioned in the prologue that the passing of Breaths is apparently strictly regulated. I imagine that after a while you're subjected to some sort of estate tax; if you try to pass on 10 Breaths to your kid, for example, the government might take 2. So, people will either just split them up and never build up a stockpile as high as 10 (give each kid five, for example), or once a family does have that many, just sell the lot to the government for a chunk of change if they're just going to tax the Breath out of you slowly, anyway.

Just a thought. Don't know if it's true, just a possibility based on the prologue.
