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 thirteen books and a prequel so far, 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.
Lan Mandragoran is Lord of the Seven towers, Lord of the Lakes, True Blade of Malkier, May He Sever the Shadow. Commonly known as Lan, he is the uncrowned King and last survivor of the royal line of Malkier; his kingdom was swallowed by the Great Blight shortly after his birth. Lan is often described as having a face of stone and chilling blue eyes. There is little that can defeat him in physical combat. He is Warder to Myrelle Berengari. Lan was born in 953 NE, the year Malkier was betrayed to the Shadow. When he was an infant and Malkier was falling, his parents placed the sword of the Malkieri kings in his hands, named him Dai Shan, Diademed Battle Lord of the Malkieri, and swore the ancient oath of Malkieri kings and queens in his name. His mother placed a locket around his neck for remembrance and twenty of Malkier's best swordsmen carried him to Fal Moran in Shienar. Only five reach the city, all wounded. The surviving men taught the child all they knew of weapons and fighting the Blight. When Lan was fifteen, Edeyn Arrel made herself his Carneira, first love. After their first night in bed, she cut Lan's hair to his shoulders, and kept a lock of it, called the daori, which she intended to give her daughter Iselle Arrel, whom she planned to marry to Lan. Edeyn would later raise the Golden Crane for Lan and began raising an army of Borderlanders for him. (more...)
