Gawyn Trakand

Lotus Closes Its Blossom is a sword form. The form is conventionally used against a single opponent. It is often followed by the swordsman wiping or shaking the blood off of the blade before sheathing the sword as a finishing flourish.[1] This is reflected by the word "closes" in the name of the form.

In practiceEdit

Gawyn Trakand cut through two Seanchan with this form before sheathing his blade. Gareth Bryne almost did not recognize the unconventional application of the form as he had "never seen it used so effectively against two men at once."[1]
