View Full Version : Prophecies of the dragon

Into the heart he thrusts his sword,
into the heart, to hold their hearts.
who draws it out shall follow after,
What hand can grasp that fearful blade? [8]

Who did rand send to retrieve callandor again? Does this just mean in the next age callandor will get picked up by the next dragon? Did the person rand sent to get callandor do it successfully?

He shall slay his people with the sword of peace, and destroy them with the leaf.

Does this mean Aiel will go back to the way of the leaf from Rand's doing and die as a result? Rand seems against the way of the leaf anyway.

He shall heal the wounds of madness and cutting of hope.

Was this when he cleansed saidin?

The north shall he tie to the east, and the west shall be bound to the south. Aiel+Shara to borderlands and seanchan to tear and illian or something?

I find these very interesting :).

The first one, mainly with Narishima (however you spell it) getting Callandor is still being debated.

2. It's kind of actual and kind of metaphoric. 1. The "slaying his people" bit tends to be agreed upon that it means that the Aiel as many people know them will cease to exist and go back to being Tinkers, which has already started.

3. I'd say so.

4. The North and East would be the Borderlands, Tear, Illian, Mayene, Andor, Cairhein, and the Aiel. The South and West are the lands under Seanchan rule. Shara, other than a few mentions here and there, will probably remain more or less obsolete in the overall story.
