Red Ajah — Wheel of Time

Red Ajah — Wheel of Time

The Wheel of Time is a series of high fantasy books written by Robert Jordan and completed by Brandon Sanderson after R Jordan passed away working on the twelfth and what was to be the final volume in this epic series started in 1990.

Without going into detail — of which will take me on a completely different course — it is a struggle of light versus dark, and the hero, Rand al’Thor is the unknowing savour of the world, also going by the name of The Dragon Reborn, and various other names, depending on which race is speaking.

Within this world there is the one power that some men and women can channel to do remarkable things, called weaving because the power can be drawn in various amounts of earth, water, air, fire and spirit. The women that can wield this power are referred to as Aes Sedai and act as a kind of “overseer” for the world. They reside in a temple called The White Tower of Tar Valon in various factions called Ajah’s.

They are described as having “ageless faces” from using the one power for so long, and typically dress in the colour of their Ajah.

This character modelled, is Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah, which, for nearly three thousand years, have been dedicated to locating men with the ability to channel and bringing them to the White Tower for gentling.

After the fall of the last age, about three thousand years ago, it was men who could channel that were responsible for the breaking of the world. Hence, it is their responsibility to gentle men — remove their ability to channel — before they can wreak the same havoc on this age.
