剧情梗概

详见:/梗概

Warbreaker tells the story of two sister princesses, Vivenna and Siri, of the country Idris. Vivenna has been raised her entire life to marry the God King of the rival nation of Hallandren, in the hopes that this marriage will forestall Hallandren's invasion of Idris, which they have been threatening for years. For reasons of political expediency, as well as the personal preferences of the king of Idris, Siri is sent, unprepared, in Vivenna's stead. Vivenna, feeling her life to be devoid of purpose after Siri is sent in her place, follows her to Hallandren in hopes of rescuing her. Both Siri and Vivenna then become involved in intrigues intended to cause war between their home nation of Idris and Hallandren, and attempt to prevent the war from happening separately: Siri from within the government and Vivenna by cooperation with the underground.

《破战者》主要讲伊迪里斯王国( Idris )一双公主姐妹,薇文娜(Vivenna )和茜蕊( Siri )。薇文娜作为长女,自幼接受的培养目标,是长大后嫁给敌国哈兰德伦( Hallandren)的神王(God King),希望通过和亲阻止入侵。基于各种政治考量和国王的私心,小女儿茜蕊在毫无准备的情况下被遣出嫁。和亲重任突然落到妹妹头上,薇文娜既感到失去目标,又希望救回妹妹,遂跟踪前往哈兰德伦。至此二人均被卷入挑动两国战争的阴谋中,妹妹穿梭庙堂之上,姐姐联系地下组织,都想努力阻止战争爆发。

At the same time, the novel tells the story of one of the Returned members of the royal court, Lightsong, and his search for the truth behind the Hallandren religion, as well as that of his own identity. The third story that the book follows is Vasher's, a mysterious character with a talking sword named Nightblood and a large number of BioChromatic Breath.

小说还讲了一位哈兰德伦宫廷成员——“重生者”( Returned )光乐君的故事,他在追寻自己的真实身份,还有哈兰德伦宗教隐藏的真相。书里的第三个故事是一位名叫瓦西尔(Vasher)的神秘男子,他拥有大量的“五彩真气”( BioChromatic Breath),和一把会说话的剑( Nightblood 夜血剑)在一起。

The book is set in the Cosmere on the Shardworld of Nalthis, home to the Shard Endowment. It is told from Vasher's, Siri's, Vivenna's, and Lightsong's points of view.

本书背景设定在三界宙碎瑛世界的 纳尔西斯,这里受神瑛 存留 支配。书里共有瓦西尔、茜蕊、薇文娜、光乐君这几个POV角色。

POV角色

Siri

Siri is the main character of the book. She is the youngest princess of the small country Idris, and is known for being rebellious and colorful, rather than attempting to detract attention from herself as the Idrian doctrine of Austreism requires. On the day of Vivenna's twenty-second birthday, when Vivenna is required to be sent to Hallandren, their father decides to send Siri in her place. Siri's ability to adapt and love for bright colors allows her to learn to enjoy Hallandren in a way that Vivenna would never have been able to. This, in turn, allows her to befriend the God King and Lightsong, as well as help defeat a plot to cause a war between Hallandren and Idris.

茜蕊

茜蕊是本书的主角。她是小国伊迪里斯的少公主,天性活泼,不愿受清规戒律管束。依照约定,姐姐薇文娜应在21岁生日那天嫁到哈兰德伦,但他们的父亲临时决定由茜蕊代姊出嫁。良好的适应力和对鲜艳色彩的热爱,让茜蕊喜爱上哈兰德伦,换作薇文娜将很难做到。茜蕊因此也与神王和光乐君成为朋友,帮助阻止了一桩战争阴谋。

Vivenna

Vivenna is Siri's sister, and the eldest child of the king of Idris. She is the perfect daughter: responsible, caring, and completely devoted to Austre. There is a contract with Hallandren that requires her to be sent to marry the God King and bear him a child(which will be still-born and become the next God King) on her twenty-second birthday. However, when the time comes for her to go, the king is unable to relinquish her, and takes advantage of the loose wording of the contract(it states only that "the Princess must be sent on Vivenna's twenty-second birthday") to send Siri in her place. Due to this, Vivenna goes through a brief depression, in which she feels like her only reason for living has been taken by Siri. She soon decides to go rescue Siri, however, and falls in with the mercenaries Denth and Tonk Fah, whom she hires to help rescue her sister.

薇文娜

薇文娜是茜蕊的大姐,伊迪里斯的长公主,有责任感,充满爱心,虔信“ Austre ” 神(伊迪里斯国信仰的神明,教义尚节俭朴素,禁欲苦行)。两国条约规定,薇文娜须在21岁生日嫁与哈兰德伦的神王,并为其产子(将是死胎并重生为下一代神王)。临近约定日期,国王却不忍送走长女,遂利用条约中的破绽(条约称:“公主须于薇文娜21岁生日当天遣送”),让妹妹茜蕊代嫁。薇文娜感到毕生努力的目标转移到妹妹身上,一度因之沮丧。很快她决定前去解救茜蕊,未料招募的佣兵( Denth and Tonk Fah )心怀叵测,陷入困境。

Lightsong

Lightsong is the Returned god of bravery in the Hallandren court of gods. He has no memory of his life before being Returned, and his only connection to his past life is through Llarimar, his servant, who is forbidden from speaking of it. Because he is skeptical of the idea the he is a god and he wishes to stop the people of Hallandren from putting their faith in him, he acts outwardly foolish. This, however, does not seem to have an affect on how people view him, as they claim he must have died incredibly bravely to be returned. He is friends(or possibly more than friends) with the goddess Blushweaver, and eventually they end up working together.

光乐君

光乐君是哈兰德伦诸神殿中的勇敢之神,重生之前与现世的唯一纽带是通过教士Llarimar 。关于重生之前的生平,前者毫无记忆,后者则被禁止提及。光乐君认为自己不是什么神明,想让信众们停止侍奉,遂刻意行为乖张。但人们认定唯有英勇牺牲才能重生为神,因此信仰毫不动摇。他是女神 Blushweaver 的朋友(或者说超出朋友关系),二人后来携手合作。

瓦西尔

We don't know very much about Vasher until the end of the book, when we discover that he is one of the Five Scholars of Nalthis. He is presented as the villain until the middle of the book, when it is revealed that he is working against a war between Idris and Hallandren. He is quiet and unwilling to talk about his past, but there is something about him which makes Vivenna trust him. He is in possession of the sword Nightblood, as well as large amounts of BioChromatic Breath. 直到本书结束部分,我们才发现瓦西尔原来是纳尔西斯星球上的“五贤者”之一。在前半部分他被描写得像个反面角色,后来才透露他在积极阻止伊迪里斯与哈兰德伦之间爆发战争。瓦西尔很沉静,不愿谈及往事,他身上有种特质让薇文娜很信任他。他持有“夜血剑”,身怀大量五彩真气。

魔法体系

The system of magic on Nalthis is reliant on the presence of color and verbal commands given by the magic user. Magic users are known as Awakeners and their power comes from the number of BioChromatic Breaths they have stored. A Breath can be thought of as a soul, or as the manifestation of the 'sixth sense'. Once robbed of the Breath, a person is called a Drab. Drabs find it difficult to perceive color and do not experience the 'sixth sense' or the odd sensation resulting from someone watching one unobserved. The more Breaths a person obtains, the more dramatic their abilities become. There are ten levels or 'Heightenings' of this magic.

纳尔西斯星球上的魔法体系基于色彩和施法者的命令语。施法者被称为唤醒师,他们的能力源于吸取的五彩真气数量。一道真气可被视为一个灵魂,或者是“第六感”。被夺去五彩真气的人被称作“无彩者”。无彩者很难辨识色彩,体验不到“第六感”,被人盯视时无法察觉。拥有的五彩真气越多,魔法能力就越强。这一魔法体系中的“增化”能力共分10级。

Any amount of Breath allows Awakening: the ability to, through specific commands, call inanimate objects to life by investing Breath in them and draining the color from another object (Awakeners usually carry a few pieces of cloth for this purpose). The closer the object's resemblance to a human (anthropomorphic shape), the easier it is to awaken. Objects of a greater size require more Breath, as do objects directed to carry out complicated commands. Breath can be regained from objects by the person who invested them with the command "Your Breath to mine."

可以实施识唤术的五彩真气数量:识唤术就是通过特殊的指令,吸取其他物品的色彩(唤醒师通常随身携带一些布段),把五彩真气注入无生命的物体,让其变为活物的法术。施法目标越像人形,越容易被唤醒;体积越大或者指令越复杂,需要的五彩真气越多。施法者可以通过命令语“还我真气”,收回五彩真气。

The following is mostly from the Ars Arcanum of Warbreaker:

下文内容主要来自破战者的秘典部分:

  • First - 50 Breaths - Aura Recognition (The ability to determine how many breaths another person has)
  • Second - 200 Breaths - Perfect Pitch (The ability to determine musical notes)
  • Third - 600 Breaths - Perfect Color Recognition (Similar to Perfect Pitch, but with the ability to determine the hues of colors)
  • Fourth - 1,000 Breaths - Perfect Life Sense
  • Fifth - 2,000 Breaths - Agelessness (Also, immunity to toxins and most physical ailments, although death is still possible from physical violence)
  • Sixth - 3,500 Breaths - Instinctive Awakening (Ability to use basic awakening commands without training or practice. Difficult commands become easier to practice and discover)
  • Seventh - 5,000 Breaths - Breath Recognition (Similar to Aura recognition, but for objects that have been invested with breath)
  • Eighth - 10,000 Breaths - Command Breaking (Ability to override commands of another awakener's awakened object)
  • Ninth - 20,000 Breaths - Greater Awakening (Ability to Awaken stone and steel, though it takes large amounts of breath and specialized commands)
  • Tenth - 50,000 Breaths - Audible Command (Ability to awaken objects the awakener is not physically touching) , Color Distortion (Creates colors from a white object by bending the light around it), Perfect Invocation (Awakener is able to draw more color when awakening leaving objects white rather than grey)

Specialized forms of this magic that are pertinent to Warbreaker include the Lifeless and the Returned. The Lifeless are reanimated human bodies that require only one Breath to Awaken. They are sustained with a specialized liquid called ichor alcohol. Lifeless feel little or no pain and are able to follow simple commands.

The Returned are the gods of the Hallandren religion. They are people who are said to have died in such a heroic manner as to be given the chance to return to this world from the afterlife. They lose their memories during the return trip but are guided by their own inherent prophetic powers. The Returned must consume one Breath every week or they die. They each contain a single powerful Breath that alone allows them to reach Fifth Heightening; granting them, among other things, agelessness. The Returned also may spend this one Breath once in their lives to perform a miracle and upon doing so, they die. These Breaths are often referred to as "Deific Breaths"

The God King is believed to be an especially powerful Returned, who consumes many breaths a week. It is considered a privilege by the citizens of Hallandren to donate their Breath to one of the Returned, even though it leaves them as a Drab.

It is important to note that all use of Breath in order to Awaken is considered heresy in Idris.

轶闻

Warbreaker was inspired by Dadradah, one of the religions that Sazed preached about, which focused on worshipping art.[3]

Brandon's editor told him that his next story after Elantris and Mistborn had to have some color to it, since those stories were both dark, so he replied that he would then write about a color based magic system. [4]
