Brandon Sanderson / Re: Dalinar as a possible radiant?

I'm pretty sure those are the only bits that show the "radiant like power". But I believe that the visions and his inner struggle (as well as the disapearance of the Thrill) show that he is becoming more and more of a radiant like person. Plus, he was asked to reorganize the Knights Radiant. That will be pretty hard if he isn't one himself, kolo?

I'd forgot about him being asked to reorganize the knights.  Didn't Nohadon tell him something like, "give back to men the shards they once bore" or something to that effect?

I agree with cabby that we know there is something special about Dalinar.  We can gather something is different about him from the visions he is having, but do those visions necessarily indicate he might be on track to become a radiant?

And ari54, what evidence in the book makes it "relatively clear" that Dalinar is on track to become some sort of radiant.

The chapter I referenced in the OP seems to be the only reference showing that Dalinar has a special gift when it comes to wielding plate and blade.  Is there evidence I have missed elsewhere that points towards him developing radiant-like powers?

Hi all,

I'm a lurker, but decided to post a small theory I have.

The other day I was re-reading the chapter "10 heartbeats" from Wok, you know the one about the greatshell hunt?  Anyway, in that chapter some strange things happen with Dalinar that I hadn't caught during my first reading.

1.When he is knocked in the air his shardplate seems to correct itself so he lands right side up
2. Adolin notes that he moves faster in shardplate than should be possible, making other shardbearers look like children by comparison
3. When he catches the greatshell claw, Adolin notices that his shardplate "almost glows"

Could it be that these are manifestations of some latent power related to the radiants?  I'll be interested to hear your thoughts.
