** [[spoiler: That's not the saddest part. The saddest part is that Secret History reveals that Sazed could have brought them back if Elend had waited just a bit longer to go Beyond. He can't bring people back from beyond, but he can bring people who haven't gone yet. As a Lerasium-derived allomancer, Elend could wait for about ten minutes, and as a fullblown Shardholder Vin could stick around for as long as she wanted. If Elend had waited a bit longer, they could have had their happily ever after on Scandrial.]]
* During Book Four of ''Well of Ascension'', the older members of the thieving crew have decided that [[spoiler:The siege of Luthadel]] is doomed to failure as [[spoiler:Lord Cett's]] army retreats and [[spoiler:the Koloss]] approach, and make a plan to [[LastStand preserve the lives of the younger members of the crew]] by distracting [[spoiler:Lord Straff]] for long enough. It's a very bittersweet moment as Kelsier's handpicked resign themselves to death, and yet stand by their honor to the last.
