Well that's what I can't decide. When Kaladin is tied up in the storm and he sees the face, I got the sense that the storm father wasn't good, as well. But then in that sequence when he's riding the storm, the voice talks to him and tells him Odium is coming the way the face in the storm is portrayed is a lot kindlier (I can't remember exactly what gave me this impression, though -- maybe I'll look it up later). So, somehow I got the impression that storm father = good guy, and is male. But if that's the case I can't tie all the pieces together. I dunno, maybe the storm father is Odium and Cultivation lives in Shinovar? WE NEED BOOK #2 ALREADY!
