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.
Elayne Trakand is currently the queen of Andor. She is described as exceedingly beautiful, with blue eyes and red-gold hair. She bears a resemblance both in name and appearance to Ilyena, the doomed wife of Lews Therin Telamon from the Age of Legends. She is also potentially one of the best Queens of Andor since its founding, and has shown intellect, delicacy and diplomacy in her doings. She is also accomplished at Daes Dae'mar. Elayne is also one of the most powerful channelers to have been born in the last 1000 years. She must also exhibit good strength in Earth and Fire because she can create Ter'Angreal, which requires decent strength in both these powers. She is also the most skilled Cloud Dancer among the Rebel Aes Sedai due to the fact that she had taken Windfinder training. Elayne is the same strength potentially as both Egwene and Aviendha. She is one of the strongest among Aes Sedai, with only Nynaeve, Alivia, Sharina, Talaan and the Forsaken bettering her in strength, and she is probably stronger than Moghedien. The youngest child and only daughter of Queen Morgase Trakand of Andor, Elayne grew up in the Royal Palace in Caemlyn. She was Heir Apparent throughout her childhood, as only women can hold the Lion Throne of Andor. (more...)
