The Ten Essences is the traditional Vorin term associated with both Soulcasting properties and the Heralds.


Each essence is connected with a type of gemstone,[1] In order to soulcast a Soulcaster must use the correct gemstone for each type of material they wish to transform something into.


Modern Vorin teachings connect each essence with a Herald and that Herald's divine attributes. It is unknown whether the heralds or the orders of Knights Radiant originally associated themselves with a specific gemstone or essence.




  1. a b In the Ars Arcanum of The Way of Kings, the Divine Attributes of learned/giving and just/confident were placed in each other's places by mistake. This was later corrected by Peter Ahlstrom.
