In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come,|
an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning.
There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.
Please be aware THIS SITE CONTAINS SPOILERS. So if you haven't read up to and including Crossroads of Twilight, stop here. The story is too good to be spoiled by me. For the Winter's Heart version of the site (downloadable only), click here.
I was hoping to update this site completely for Crossroads of Twilight, but I haven't been able to organise it before I go away. I have done what I can. This site has all characters named in the first nine books, as well as Strike at Shayol Ghul, New Spring and The World of Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, and the few chapters I have been able to complete of the tenth book. I have counted a total of separate and individual characters to date. That is only the named ones, although there are many unnamed characters in the series. I have also made notes on the characters, including how I have filed them. I have also given special attention to mistakes and anomolies.
Wheel of Time Character News
I am unable to update this website regularly for a while, so for current WOT news visit Dragonmount.com.
Crossroads of Twilight
I am unable to update this site completely for book 10. However, I have completed the first 13 chapters of the book, which include 69 new characters. Click here. I will be able to complete the update, but not for a couple of years. So book 10 and 11 may be added at the same time.
Tor Fantasy recently re-released The Eye of the World in two parts, with an extra chapter at the beginning of the first part, called From the Two Rivers. A larger glossary is in the second part, called To The Blight. The new chapter introduces the series for "intermediate" readers and is from the point of view of Egwene at nine years of age. As well as extra information on existing characters, there were 8 new characters in this chapter. Click here to see them.
Search or Download
The search form will search for a name or part of a name, be it first, middle or surname, quicker than you can say "I reckon the bloke who created this site is top notch." As well, a downloadable version of the site is available (807kb). This is for home use only and not to be copied, or used for profit of any kind!
I have listed the characters in many different ways for ease of use, including by first name, by surname, and in order of appearance. Or, there is a list of all character lists, many which are of smaller groups. If you get lost, the site map may help.
Thank you to Lance McPheeters for your assistance with all things WOT, your ongoing input is invaluable. Thanks to Joel V. Ernest DeYoung and Karen Davis for your proof reading skills. Many others have given small but valuable contributions through feedback and suggestions, I thank you all for your thoughts.
While I am always pleased to receive your emails, I am unable to read or reply to them for some time as I am travelling for the next couple of years. So if you have any comments, save them and send them on in 2005. This will probably have me returning just in time to organise the updates for Book 11!
