Al'Lan Mandragoran, (pronounced: AHL'LAN man-DRA-gor-an) known commonly as Lan, is also known as Lord of the Seven Towers, Lord of the Lakes, True Blade of Malkier, Defender of the Wall of First Fires, Bearer of the Sword of the Thousand Lakes, May He Sever the Shadow, Dai Shan, and known to the Aiel as Aan'allein. He is the uncrowned king and only survivor of the royal line of the fallen kingdom of Malkier.

  • Royalty
  • He is a Highman and not a Common Man.

  • Became the newly risen Blue Ajah Aes Sedai Moiraine Damodred's Warder in 979 NE
  • Bears the Sword of Malkieri Kings as is his birthright
    • This blade is not Heron Marked - though no one familiar with swordsmanship will mistake Lan as anything other than a blademaster.
