Present Storyline Status
Because not everyone has the time to go back and read thousands of posts, we have created this document to give you a quick rundown on what storylines there are and the status of each of them. There are monthly summaries available (not for all months yet, however) for you to read if you like that will let you know how we got to this point in the story. As always, if you have any questions, please contact a moderator. We'll be glad to help you. These storylines are separated for the purpose of explanation...characters are not required to stay put in one story.
A. Main characters involved: Jorrek, Nyx, Blen, Richaad, Mia (and, sort of, Alekhz)
B. Others: a very large army of channelers and non-channelers that has grown as they make their way across Seanchan
C. Storyline: After learning of the story of General Reavus (story in another document), Jorrek went to Seanchan intending to take his rightful place on the throne and restore peace to his ancestors’ land. With the help of those with him, he has managed to gain control of most of the country. All that is left is Seandar, the capital of the land. Controlled by a group of power-hungry nobles who have started enslaving channelers again, this will not be an easy battle for them to win.
Jorrek wears the foxhead medallion that once belonged to Mat Cauthon. It has been passed on to each generation of Cauthons, though for a time they went by the name of Abell. Nyx, oddly, carries the ashandarei that belonged Mat...it is rumored that Mat willed it to one of Nyx's ancestors. Nyx is also in possession of Nynaeve's diaries, as well as Semirhage's secret diaries (which only the Mandragorans know of). Blen (Nyx's uncle and brother of the King of Malkier), Richaad (an Asha'man believed to be dead), and Mia (a good friend of Jorrek's) have all joined in the fight to help Jorrek.
II. Outcast army (presently located at the 'castle' in the Mountains of Mist):
A. Main characters involved: Faia, Neill, Misha,
B. Others: a large army of approximately eight thousand channelers, four thousand non-channelers and three thousand civilians. The army grows daily.
Storyline: When the ex-M'Hael went mad (under the control of a member of
the Jenn Sedai) and sentenced Faia Mantear to death,
many channelers and non-channelers fled out of fear. Faia
was rescued by her friends and the lot of them set up camp near Whitebridge.
They stayed there until Faia found a new place to take
them, a safer place. Labeled rebels by the
Among those with her are Hadley and Wynn Ablar, descendants of the legend Logain Ablar and his wife, Elnore ti Mandragoran Ablar. Both are very talented; Wynn is a brilliant scientist and mathematician who has invented many items and Hadley is capable of making One Power wrought weapons and armor. Together they have started supplying Faia's army with a great number of useful things.
Misha, a little girl who was adopted by Nezdin when her grandfather passed away, possesses the Talent of Foretelling. This Talent has been a bit quirky since she has moved into the castle but she is faring well there.
Neill, a once shy man who was very close to Faia, disappeared before everyone moved to the castle. Though he had bonded Faia (to save her life), that bond has since been dissolved and he has been missing ever since.
A. Main characters involved: Nor, Lir, the Jenn Sedai
