    Interview: Oct 11th, 2005


    There seem to be some time discrepancies surrounding the incident where Elayne and company Traveled to the Kin farm. Did the gateway Aviendha opened to the countryside near the Kin farm at the beginning of The Path of Daggers allow Elayne's party to travel forward or backward in time?

    Robert Jordan

    He chuckled for a brief moment and then said "RAFO."

    Were the Kin inspired by some real-life group?

    Robert Jordan

    No, as far as I know, I made them up.

    Tell me what you can about Laras' backstory. Is she an agent of the Kin?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Basically RAFO. Laras is in New Spring (which I don't remember).

    This led to a fair amount of discussion about backstories—he doesn't want to spoil something that could be revealed. So, I followed up with something like 'presumably, if the prequels are written, we'll learn more of Laras'. Brandon said yes, presumably.

    Was Norla in the Kin and where did she get her paralis-net?

    Brandon Sanderson



    Norla is the 'toothless wilder' in the Black Hills from who Cadsuane earned her hair ornament ter'angreal [WH34, COT23].
