I am the Seven Satrapies


Dazen Guile is the son of Andross Guile and the younger brother of Gavin Guile. He is referred to as Gavin throughout most of the series because he has stolen the identity of (and imprisoned) his brother following the Prism's War. Dazen is in many ways a superior version of Gavin. Dazen fell in love with Karris White Oak, Gavin raped her. Gavin failed the Tresher, Dazen was the first one in living memory to pass it. Gavin wasn't a superchromat, Dazen was. Karris, not being aware of Dazen's impersonation, once remarked while thinking of Gavin "How can someone come back from war a better person?"

Prehistory Edit

Spoiler Warning!
This section of the Article may contain spoilers.

He fell in love with Karris White Oak when he was seventeen, a girl betrothed to his older brother Gavin. In order to secure the most advantageous position for his family, Andross intended for Dazen to seduce Karris, and then 'accidentally' discover them together. This would allow him to demand whatever terms he desired in her match with Gavin. However, she and Dazen fell in love for real, and triggered the False Prism’s War when “he” burned down her family compound, killing everyone within.

The Black PrismEdit

Dazen is a well-loved Prism. He and the White, Orea Pullawr, are on good terms but constantly jockeying for position. One of His ways of escaping is to go off on his own and draft a skimmer, which allows his to travel faster than anyone has ever gone. Upon hearing that he (in actuality his brother Gavin) had a bastard son, Dazen takes Karris White Oak and goes to Tyrea to investigate the rumor. They fly for part of the trip and successfully interrupt King Garradul before he kills Kip, the one who is supposedly Gavin's son.

The Blinding KnifeEdit

Dazen built the Seers Island satrapy by making seers island easily reachable by ship. This was done by removing huge sections of reef with yellow luxin, as well as creating a three-part breakwater. Later on, he finds that he can't draft any colors and ends up working for Gunner.

The Blood Mirror Edit

Spoiler Warning!

In The Blood Mirror, it is revealed that Dazen is a black luxin monochromat. He can draft other colours because he absorbs the power of people he kills. This is the reason he hunts wights. It is also revealed that he killed Gavin instead of imprisoning him.
