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.
Thomdril Merrilin is fairly old, has a gnarled face, shaggy white hair and blue eyes. He is tall, with stooped shoulders, his snowy hair and long mustaches make him appear older than he probably is, given his spryness. He is frequently seen smoking a pipe. Not much of his early life is known, although he was Bard to the young Lady Morgase of House Trakand. He helped her ascend to the throne of Andor and became her Court Bard, and was renowned in noble circles in most nations. He thwarted Taringail's plan to kill Morgase and killed him. He and Morgase became lovers. Somewhere during this time, Thom discovered his nephew and only surviving blood kin, Owyn, was being pursued by the Red Ajah for channeling, but he was too busy with his duties to Morgase to seek him out. The issue of Owyn returned later and Thom disappeared to help him, but he had waited too long: Owyn had been gentled by the Red Ajah and, left alone, had died. When Thom returned, Morgase was angry with him for leaving - a fight ensued, and Thom said she was a spoiled baby and tool of the White Tower. He left, barely dodging the execution block. (more...)
