Mistborn Charactersby dwhite80235 | created - 26 Aug 2015 | updated - 26 Aug 2015 | Public
This is my well thought out list of who I would like to play the characters in the Mistborn movie
Timothy Leonard Spall was born in Battersea, London, to Sylvia R. (Leonard), a hairdresser, and Joseph L. Spall, a postal worker. He was raised in London. Spall auditioned and earned a spot with the National Youth Theatre and later showed great promise at RADA where he portrayed the title roles in ...
*****SPOILER ALERT***** Breeze worked closely with Kelsier during the Skaa Rebellion. He was Ham’s older best friend and liked to argue philosophy with him He was thought by the rest of Kelsier’s crew to be half-skaa but he was actually a full-blooded nobleman who was forced during his youth to hide in the underground. After Elend became king, Breeze became one of his foremost counselors and diplomats. Breeze was romantically involved with Allriane, Lord Cett’s daughter. He dresses sharply in a nobleman’s suit – plum vest, gold buttons, black overcoat – complete with short-brimmed hat and dueling cane. He is a bit portly and stocky, has a head of well-styled black hair and is exceptionally well spoken. He was manipulative and a little selfish; he joined Kelsier’s crew for the challenge, not because he really wanted to help the skaa. He was one of the most powerful, brazen and flagrant soothers in the Final Empire; he could sooth hundreds of men at once, assuming they are packed close enough together and assuming that he is focusing on simple emotions. Most soothers use their powers with discrimination and subtlety, nudging emotions only at the most opportune times. Breeze, however, plays with everyone’s emotions. If they know what to look for, close friends of his can feel his touch on their own feelings almost all the time when they are near him.

*****SPOILER ALERT***** Clubs received his Allomancy from his father who was of noble birth. Clubs had been in the Lord Ruler’s army and fought in combat off and on for about 20 years when he was younger – fighting rebellions in the distant dominances, warring against the nomads out in the barrens. He was hired by Kelsier and worked closely with him in the Skaa Rebellion. Before the Fall of the Final Empire, he was a very gifted master carpenter and owned a shop in Luthadel. In his shop, he had many apprentices; many of them were other smokers who would help hide Allomancers. His apprentices often called him Master Cladent, which was his carpenter’s name. After the Fall of the Final Empire, he worked as a General under King Elend. He died during the siege of Luthadel when a koloss army attacked. He wore a dull tan overcoat, a pair of brown trousers and a simple white shirt. His face was knotted and gnarled like a twisted piece of wood and his eyes shown with the level of disapproving dissatisfaction only the elderly can display. It was hard to place his age – he was young enough that he didn't stoop over, yet old enough that he made even the middle-aged Breeze look youthful. He limped when he walked due to an injury he obtained when he was a soldier under the Lord Ruler; thus the nickname Clubs. He spoke very bluntly and callously – he wasn't a pessimist, he just said the things that he didn't think others wanted to acknowledge. He had a remarkable knack for leading soldiers.

He snapped during The Hero of Ages, the third book, by the mists and became a seer, being able to burn atium.

Marsh - Marsh is Kelsier’s older brother. He lead the Skaa Rebellion for a time but eventually handed control of it over to Yeden as he felt it was a futile hope to keep fighting.

In The Well of Ascension, the second book, he was slowly corrupted by Ruin. In The Hero of Ages, the third book, he was completely controlled by Ruin except for a crucial piece of him that was still self controlled.

However, later it was revealed that he remained alive and active 300 years later in the fourth Mistborn book, The Alloy of Law, due to his ability of Fermuchemy and Allomancy gained by Hemalurgy.
