Ink, I think you are amazing. I wish I had half the skill of you.

One quick thing though- wouldn't the little Koloss have a 'tight' spot in their skin were the spikes were?

No Zas, the flabbiness of the skin covers the spikes up and you wouldn't be able to notice it.

Where the heck does their spike go, anyhow? And how big is it?

'Cause I seem to remember it being fairly small.

Koloss have four spikes, but I don't think they necessarily even stick out of the skin.

The Koloss spikes would probably go at each shoulder and each hip.
I must not fear;
Fear is the mind killer;
I will face my fear;
I will let it pass through me;
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing;
Only I will remain.

But don't the spikes have to kill the person for it to work? Otherwise they're just a person with magical spikes stuck in them, like Vin. Maybe I am wrong :P.

Maybe to create koloss, but hemalurgic spikes can be as small as a splinter of metal, as proven with Spook.

The spikes have to kill three people (one person per either spike or pair of spikes) and then get placed into a fourth.  The unlucky person who ends up with all of them and survives has become a koloss.

Okay I looked it up and you can make green, yellow, red, and blue dyes from metal and acid.  With the society being based on metal I would expect that they are proficient in mixing metals so could make dyes out of them.  If the dyes are being made from metal I would expect only the rich to have them.  Metal is far to important in the society for the poor to be using it for dyes.

Not quite finished with it, but it's about there.
