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.
Lews Therin Telamon was the Dragon during the War of Power. He was the leader of the forces of Light and was well respected all over the world. He was able to summon the "Nine Rods of Dominion", as well as being the highest rank of Aes Sedai, being the Tamyrlin Seat. He was as strong in the Power as a man could be and was the "first among servants". Lews Therin was the most powerful Aes Sedai during the Age of Legends, rivaled only by Elan Morin Tedronai (Ishamael). Because of his arrogance and how powerful he was, many became jealous of him, including Tel Janin Aellinsar, Duram Laddel Cham, and Barid Bel Medar. He wrote many successful books, and held high offices with great success, not the least of which includes the High Seat of the Hall of Servants. After a relationship with Mierin Eronaile soured, he married Ilyena Sunhair. Fifty years later, the War of Power began, and Lews Therin was named general of the forces of the Light, leading them to many great victories. At some time during the War of Power he humbles Ishamael in the Hall of Servants and defeats him at the Gates of Paaran Disen. However, Lews Therin's greatest generals' jealousy got the best of them and they all defected to The Shadow, turning the war to their favor. When it seemed that the Light would lose, Lews Therin proposed the placing of seven seals to lock the Dark One away again. Latra Posae Decume and all strong female Aes Sedai opposed this, creating the Fateful Concord. (more...)

At Bukama's urging, Lan agrees not to return to the Borderlands immediately, and the two head southward together, possibly to Illian.
