Wheel of Time: al’Lan Mandragoran is Moiraine Damodred’s warder and one of the central characters in the Wheel of Time series.
Lan is the rightful king of Malkier and the last of their royal line. He carries many titles, like Aan’allein, Bearer of the Sword of the Thousand Lakes, Dai Shan, Defender of the Wall of First Fires, Lord of the Lakes, Lord of the Seven Towers, May He Sever the Shadow, and True Blade of Malkier.
The Twilight Saga: La Push is a Native American reservation near Forks in Washington state. It is the home of the Quileute tribe and it has a long beach where people like to go surfing and whale-watching.
Jacob Black lives at La Push, and this is where he tells Bella Swan the truth about the Cullens.
La Push, and the Quileute, exist in real life and there has been quite a lot of controversy around the way they are used in the Twilight Saga. Whether you like Twilight or not, I’d recommend you check out the Quileute Nation website to learn their real story and support their effort to move their tribe to safer lands.
THE READER’S WIKI is a slowly growing collection of glossary/wiki entries where I collect terms from the titles I delve into.
NB! The wiki may contain spoilers – you have been warned. =)
I try to list all the (potentially) new terms as I write my blog posts and link to the wiki page where they are explained. Linked words are always this colour and underscored.
Let me know if the word/concept you’re looking for isn’t there and I’ll try to add it as soon as I can.
