听者Listener柔刹世界上的一种智慧生物。[1]分为两大类,分别为服侍人类、温顺的仆族仆族智者。The Stormfather called them the Old Ones. [2]

听者可通过某些韵律交谈或在分开时联系,而仆族则没有该能力。雄性听者会在长出来的胡子上串上注入飓光的宝石。

Anatomy

形态

听者可以在飓风中与灵体缔结纽带,以使自己进入某种“形态”。[3]处于不同形态的听者会拥有不同的外形、身体构造和精神状态。听者形态歌中记载了很多种形态,但大多已经失传。

除了交配态与奴隶态,其余的大多数形态都是无性别之分的。[4][5]

战斗态(Warform)
Warform is worn for battle and reign,
Claimed by the gods, given to kill.
Unknown, unseen, but vital to gain.
It comes to those with the will.
—— 15th stanza of the Song of Listing[6]

身材高大,体魄强健,可直接跃过深渊,来往于平原之上。双目纯黑如玉,胡须上捆着未经雕琢的宝石。身上长着怪异的橙色壳甲,直与血肉相连,大理石般的皮肤黑中带红,好似烧红的炭块。士兵多为此态。 Warform gives listeners an armor-like carapace; it also seems to give them advanced physical capabilities, although it severely hampers artistic ability and is not equipped to handle abstractions. Most Parshendi that interact with the Alethi are in warform.

劳动态(Workform)
Workform worn for strength and care.
Whispering spren breathe at your ear.
Seek first this form, its mysteries to bear.
Found here is freedom from fear.
—— 19th stanza of the Song of Listing[7]

可以说是除仆族外,数量最多的听者。这种形态的听者俯首帖耳,唯命是从。且体格健壮,几乎可以与战斗态听者一拼,不过盔甲并未覆盖他们纤细的手指。 Workform also endows significant physical strength, although without the armor of the warform; those in work form also have thinner fingers. While in workform, the Parshendi find it difficult to commit violence and did not like confrontation.

交配态(Mateform)
Mateform meek, for love to share,
Given to life, it brings us joy.
To find this form, one must care.
True empathy, one must employ.
—— 5th stanza of the Song of Listing[8]

负责繁衍后代,其数量较少,一般只持续几周。处于交配态时,听者易被X欲主导,妨碍心智。不过,某些听者迟迟不肯褪下交配态…… Mateform is used for reproductive purposes. A few listeners maintain mating form constantly, although most enter it only briefly in order to reproduce with a partner; if these partners later entered war form they became a warpair. It is a distracting form which makes productive work difficult.

愚钝态(Dullform)
Dullform dread, with the mind most lost.
The lowest, and one not bright.
To find this form, one needs banish cost.
It finds you and brings you to blight.
—— final stanza of the Song of Listing[9]

极少用到的一种形态。它是过去的遗存,那时听者们仍未找回更好的形态。

这种形态以低等的智力和行动力著称,如今被用于针对人类的间谍活动。

从外表上看,与人类口中的“仆族”极为相似,但身高稍占优势。最重要,也是最能区分两者的一点是:愚钝态听者的智力远没有仆族那么低下。 Dullform is an older form which was rarely used after the discovery of the newer forms. Those in dull form are not very intelligent.

机敏态(Nimbleform)
Nimbleform has a delicate touch.
Gave the gods this form to many,
Tho' once defied, by the gods they were crushed.
This form craves precision and plenty.
—— 27th stanza of the Song of Listing[10]

拥有这种形态的听者体态轻盈、做事小心。听者经常用此养育孩童,也会干上一些马虎不得的细活。虽然该形态具备更为发达的艺术细胞,可是化身此态的听者数量很少。 Nimbleform is a form used by the Parshendi scholars because they do not know the correct spren to bond with for scholarform. It does not impede the mind and the fingers are delicate enough for recording their findings. It grows long hair without any carapace to block it and yeilds delicate swirling patterns in their skin, along with a thinner facial structure.

治学态(Scholarform)
Scholarform shown for patience and thought.
Beware its ambitions innate.
Though study and diligence bring the reward,
Loss of innocence may be one's fate.
—— 69th stanza of the Song of Listing[11]

何为真正的治学态仍是个谜,但从听者形态歌中可知,应该是听者会变得更有耐心,善于思考,刻苦钻研,真是学渣必备之形态。书中,听者们只能暂时维持机敏态,以求得相似的功效。

博艺态(Artform)
Artform applied for beauty and hue.
One yearns for the songs it creates.
Most misunderstood by the artist it's true,
Come the spren to foundation's fates.
—— 90th stanza of the Song of Listing[12]
Artform for colors beyond our ken;
For its grand songs we yearn.
We must attract creationspren;
These songs suffice 'til we learn.
—— 279th stanza of the Song of Revision[13]

听者中的艺术大师,尤其是音乐方面的才能,简直无与伦比。

调停态(Mediationform)
Meditationform made for peace, it's said.
Form of teaching and consolation.
When used by the gods, it became instead
Form of lies and desolation.
—— 33rd stanza of the Song of Listing[14]

此态崇尚和平。可用于开导他人或是传授学识,可以说充当着类似听者中“神父”(政委)的角色。若被诸神利用此态,则会适得其反。

夜影态(Nightform)
Nightform predicting what will be,
The form of shadows, mind to forsee.
As the gods did leave, the nightform whispered.
A new storm will come, someday to break.
A new storm a new world to make.
A new storm a new path to take, the nightform listens.
—— 17th stanza of the Song of Secrets[15]

极为神奇的一种形态,能够预知未来。

腐朽态(Decayform)
Decayform destroys the souls of dreams.
A form of gods, to avoid it seems.
Seek not its touch, nor beckon its screams, deny it.
Watch where you walk, your toes to tread.
O'er hill or rocky riverbed
Hold dear to fears that fill your head, defy it.
—— 27th stanza of the Song of Secrets[16]

源自诸神之力,似乎非常邪恶。

烟幕态(Smokeform)
Smokeform for hiding and slipping between men.
A form of power, like human Surges.
Bring it 'round again.
Though crafted of gods,
It was by Unmade hand.
Leaves its force to be but one of foe or friend.
—— 127th stanza of the Song of Histories[17]
Smokeform for hiding and slipping 'tween men.
A form of power—like Surges of spren
Do we dare to wear this form again? It spies.
Crafted of gods, this form we fear.
By Unmade touch its curse to bear,
Formed from shadow—and death is near. It lies.
—— 51st stanza of the Song of Secrets[18]

灭者所赐。此态适宜静身潜行,掌握者多为刺客。

飓风态(Stormform)
Stormform is said to cause
A tempest of winds and showers,
Beware its powers, beware its powers.
Though its coming brings the gods their night,
It obliges a bloodred spren.
Beware its end, beware its end.
—— 4th stanza of the Song of Winds[19]

眼睛变得血红。大理石般的皮肤没有发生改变,还是基本上呈黑色,只生有微量红色条纹。但战斗态特有的沉重盔甲已经褪去,手臂的皮肤上探出分布紧密的细小脊状突起,肢体灵活,身上长着富有棘刺的甲片,十分结实,极具威慑力。最厉害的是,飓风态的听者可以感受到飓风的律动,并召唤它。人数越多,效果越强。

飓风态还能获得新韵,能大致听清一些声音,那些声音会说话、出主意。

那是诸神的意志。 Storm form is a newer form re-discovered during the War of Reckoning. Little is known about it.

奴隶态

slaveform, the form with no spren, no soul, and no song. (...) It wasn't really a form at all, however, but the lack of any form.
—— Eshonai musing about listener forms[1]

这种形态缺乏与灵体的羁绊,没有灵魂,不会歌唱,人类对此早已习惯,他们称之为仆族。然而,奴隶态根本算不上形态,而是形态的匮乏。 There is also "slaveform," which is not a true form, but the lack of a bond with a spren or lack of a form. The creatures known as the parshmen throughout Roshar are actually listener in this "slave form".

Parshmen live among humans (notably the Alethi but also in Jah Keved and Kharbranth[20]) and generally function as servants.[21] Barely of intelligence,[22] it is said that these people, if left in the woods, would stand around amiably until someone comes along to tell them what to do.[23][24] Generally, a parshmen would take orders without any objection.[20] They could speak but rarely did so.[25]

Physically, slave form listeners are strong enough to perform physical labor.[22] Their skin has either a marbled pattern of black and red or white and red, although the white and red is more common in Alethkar.[21][26]

They care about and are protective of their dead, usually objecting to anyone other than one of themselves tending to them.[27] This care for the dead presumably extended to corpses of other listeners as well.[22]

性别

听者的性别分为四种:进入交配态区分男女(male, female),其余情况下均为中性,名义上也分“男女”(malen, femalen),但是他们不具备性欲和生育能力,仅在体貌特征上有所区别。

韵律

听者之间可以用韵律(Rhythms)交谈。这种韵律不同于曲调,是不论使用与否都持续存在的。例如,听者可以使用韵律计时。[28]

韵律让听者间建立联系,即使他们之间相隔甚远。[29]听者可以用韵律表达情感和思想,并可以在无意中与其他听者的韵律相协调,发出同一种韵律,回应对方的情感。他们也可主动的调整自己的韵律去回应对方。

历史

听者在人类来到柔刹大陆前便已存在。[请求来源]

不知何时,听者认为灵体背叛了他们,给予人类飓能而非听者,转向了其他神寻求帮助。[34][35]这些神——也许是灭者[18],但至少肯定是仇恨的手下[36][37]——改变了他们,使他们成为了虚渡。数度灭世轮回之后,当世学者迦熙娜·寇林重新认识到虚渡并未像沃林教宣称的那样被赶回宁静园,而是被人类奴役,成为了人们口中的“仆族”。[26]

灭世之后,仍有一部分愚钝态听者部落存留下来。[请求来源]他们之间经历了长久的杀伐,终于渐渐统一起来,[38]成为了我们目前在破碎平原看到的这支仆族智者军队。

阿勒斯卡人最初发现了听者的部落,震惊的发现他们不同于仆族,拥有智慧,随即将他们命名为仆族智者。先王迦维拉尔与他们签订了和平协议,但就在协议签订当晚的庆祝晚宴上,仆族智者排出杀手刺杀了迦维拉尔,宣告了听者古老神明的回归。阿勒斯卡众公国缔结了复仇誓约,向仆族智者展开了复仇之战

仆族智者在破碎平原与人类展开了对峙。随着战事愈发不利,他们逐渐后撤到纳拉克附近。[30][28]此时,一位听者学者温丽发现了他们古老的形态飓风态。仆族智者五元老之一伊舒娜首先尝试了这种形态,并被这种形态控制了。为了挽回战局,伊舒娜命令大量听者进入这种形态。

为了终结复仇之战轩亲王达力拿·寇林带领了一支联军开赴纳拉克,与听者展开了激战,是为纳拉克之战。进入了飓风态的听者们——也就是虚渡——召唤来了一场逆向的飓风。伊舒娜本以为他们可以召唤的是普通的飓风,不想却召唤来了灭世风暴,从而掀开了新一轮灭世,也即终极灭世

听者历史上曾与人类通婚,现代恩卡拉基人赫达孜人即是他们的后代。[39][40]

听者们在古时变化形态更多靠的是运气而非人工控制。后来他们发现人类可以用宝石捕获灵体,就也自己发展了类似的技术,从而可以控制自己的形态变化。[28]
