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.
Tamlin al'Thor is the adoptive father of Rand al'Thor. His wife was Kari al'Thor. He lives on a farm in the Westwood near Emond's Field, where he raised Rand from a baby. He has a thick chest, a lined face, and his hair is now completely gray. At an early age, Tam al'Thor left the Two Rivers, where he grew up, and joined the army of Illian, eventually joining the Companions. While employed there, he fought through the Whitecloak War, two wars with Tear, and the Aiel War. During this time, he was able to rise in rank to Second Captain of the Companions. He became a blademaster, and also married a red-haired woman from Caemlyn, Kari al'Thor. He also somehow procured a power-wrought blade with a heron mark, a rare item indeed. Near the end of the Aiel War, Tam found a baby alone on the slopes of Dragonmount. The mother was dead, and remembering his wife's desire for a child, he adopted him. He returned to the Two Rivers with his wife and the baby, whom he named Rand. There he settled on an outlying farm. Kari al'Thor died before she could see her son grow up, and Tam never remarried, despite the best efforts of the Women's Circle. (more...)
