|Thus Spake The Creator
Q: What went on with Egwene, Mat and Fain in the
dungeon of The Great Hunt?
Q: What is Padan Fain's overall role in the Wheel Of
Time (besides hating Rand with a passion)
Q: What exactly is Padan Fain?
Q: Mr. Jordan, The Wheel Of Time series
is an incredible piece of work. It is truthfully beyond
anything I have ever read, including the works of Tolkein.
Is there any advise you could give to an aspiring writer
who is having a terrible time getting started with his
story? I'm also an amature actor and I look forward to
auditioning for the part of Padan Fain one day.
Reports from signings
What is Fain? Mordeth + person. Mordeth is a human-made evil. The black wind gets along with Mordeth because of professional courtesy. Fain is anti-forsaken as well as anti-Rand. He has a lot of skills and abilities outside of channelling. He can not channel.
Next two questions were essentially the same, just
about different characters: Had he always known the size
and importance of the role of Fain and Cadsuane?
He also mentioned the fact that Fain is essentially his wild card, a character that is outside the structure of the work and can therefore act totally unpredictably.
I was able to get a few questions in. Karl-Johan I got a RAFO about the nature of Fain. However I think I worded the question differently than we had originally planned. Damn if I could find the paper I took notes on before I went to the signing.
Q6: (Didnt catch the question exactly, but it
regarded Fains escape and the dead prisoners)
