DescriptionsEdit Descriptions

The Mistborn is set in the Final Empire, a region of the world Scadrial ruled by an immortal being known as the Lord Ruler. This world is populated by two peoples: the nobles, who own lands and live in castles, and the skaa, who are their slaves. The nobles possess a hereditary magic called Allomancy which allows the practitioner to access certain powers by ingesting and ‘burning’ the corresponding metals. It is common for the nobles to be limited to the use of one power, however there are rare individuals called the Mistborn who possess the power to manipulate all ten metals.  The story follows half-skaa Vin, a 16-year-old thief living a dangerous life in the streets of Luthadel, the capital city of the Final Empire. She meets Kelsier, a mysterious and charismatic half-skaa man who is the leader of a gang of thieves. He recognises that Vin is Mistborn, and being one of the most powerful Mistborn around, agrees to train her if she joins his motley band of thieves. Kelsier and his gang plan a daring raid, into the centre of the palace of the Lord Ruler to discover the secret of his immortality and power. (English, Unclassified)
