In the film ''Film/Incendies'', Nawal as a teenager gives birth to a baby boy, and her grandmother puts a tattoo on the child's heel so that Nawal will recognise the boy if she finds him later. The point where she does find him is a brain-breaking heart-wrenching moment.

Just before the final battles, she reveals an orb of her own that she'd created using the techniques her father had taught her, and it's a powerful Orb--guaranteed crits against Angels.]]

* Vin's earing in Creator/BrandonSanderson's original ''Franchise/{{Mistborn}}'' trilogy.
