    Interview: Nov 21st, 1998

    Robert Jordan

    Moiraine lost her list sometime between New Spring and The Eye of the World. By the opening of the story, all she could remember was that there had been a name from the Two Rivers.


    The novel version of New Spring had not been released at this time. The Legends version included a mention of Kari, which RJ decided to remove in the novel version because of the confusion: ["Kari al'Thor. From Andor? Husband Tamlin, Second Captain of he Illianer Companions, took discharge." That pair might have gone anywhere in the world and there was doubt she had had a child at all.]

    How about, I've noticed that the history of Rand's "parents" hasn't really been developed. We know a bit about Tam (and the original correlation with Rand's character). Could you tell us something about Kari?

    Robert Jordan

    Not really at this point. We'll find out a little bit more later.

    Interview: Oct 22nd, 2005

    Robert Jordan

    RJ also briefly outlined in what was my favorite part of the Q and A the nature of the other two prequels. Specifically what made Tam al'Thor decide to give up a "lucrative military career" and move to the Two Rivers and buy a small farm, and how Lan and Moiraine arrived in the Two Rivers when they did in The Eye of the World. RJ also briefly mentioned that we would meet Kari al'Thor (Rand's surrogate mother) and how she came to meet Tam. All in all they were obvious answers, but nice to hear RJ confirming them all the same.

    What can you tell us about Kari al'Thor? Where was she from, etc.

    Robert Jordan

    About Kari al'Thor: you're going to have to read on to find out beyond what's already in the books.

    RobMRobM had me ask three questions. Will we find out where Morgase learned the Two Rivers speech? Will Tam end up with a wife? Was Kari al'Thor related to Morgase?

    Brandon Sanderson

    RobM you get the triple RAFO award.
