First published in 1990, Robert Jordan began an epic series called The Wheel of Time. For the next seventeen years, readers experienced eleven books of rich and expansive storytelling. However, on September 16th, 2007, Robert Jordan passed away due to cardiac amyloidosis. His legacy is carried on by Brandon Sanderson, a fellow fantasy author and Wheel of Time fan. With the help of Harriet Rigney, Robert Jordan's wife and editor, Mr. Sanderson continues a journey over twenty years in the making.
All manner of characters populate the vast world of the series. With fourteen books and a prequel, The Wheel of Time series contains thousands of characters, from Aes Sedai, Warders, and nobility, to humble farmers and maids, from powerful warriors to those sworn to peace in all they do.
Moiraine was born in Cairhien as niece to King Laman Damodred, youngest half-sister of Taringail Damodred, and spent a lot of time in the Sun Palace. Her father was Dalresin Damodred, a scholar. Father's name from Encyclopedia WOT by means of personal communication. Her two elder sisters are Anvaere Damodred and Innloine Damodred. At 16 she discovered without guidance that she possessed the spark to channel the One Power, and left for the White Tower to become an Aes Sedai. As a novice she became friends with a young woman named Siuan Sanche. Both were quick learners, passing all rituals on their first attempt, and attained the shawl in just six years. A powerful channeler in her own right, Moiraine started to show her spark at her home in the then royal house of Damodred. As she was the most powerful channeler in a few centuries, she progressed very quickly in the Tower, taking only 6 years to progress from the status of Novice, to the status of Aes Sedai. She was known to have delayed Aginor at the Eye of the World for a considerable time with the help of a minor angreal, giving Rand al'Thor time to reach the Eye first. She also was known to be able to weave Balefire, a forbidden weave since The War of Power. How she knows it remains unclear. Moiraine is arguably the most accomplished of the Aes Sedai, maybe even more than Cadsuane Melaidhrin, in that she personally faced and defeated two Forsaken by herself. She saved Rand at the Stone of Tear by arriving in time to kill Be'lal with balefire and then defeated Lanfear by pushing her through the Ter'angreal at Carhein. (more...)
