Moiraine Damodred

Post Number:#1  Postby The Keeper » 31 Aug 2010, 20:36

If you have read at all any of the Wheel of Time books (as I have) by Robert Jordan you most certainly know about Moiraine Damodred. I particularly like the character dynamic between her and her Warder Lan. I used to hate her, but when she surrendered and bent her head to to Rand-al-Thor she proved two things to me. One, that she was truly Aes Sedai in that when engaging with the female side of the Source it is SURRENDER that allows the Source to be mastered and controlled. And two, she also proved to me that what she was doing was FAR MORE IMPORTANT than her own Aes Sedai ego and arrogance. In THAT moment Moiraine Aes Sedai earned my respect and loyalty. She is no less Aes Sedai than she ever was, but she is far more HUMAN than she seemed earlier. "Dying" for her cause and subjecting herself to possible death in her current predicament, severing her ties to Lan in all of that further cemented this new respect and loyalty for me.

Of the female characters in books that I have placed on pedestals ( :) ) Moiraine now ranks with Polgara and Honor Harrington.

All of this to mention that periodically I will Google her name to see if I find anything new. Tonight I discovered a fan painting of her that is truly spectacular and worthy of the artist being paid a professional fee for a book cover. Here is the link to the blog post where I found this: http://blog.echoenduring.com/2009/07/15/amazing-moiraine-damodred-painting/. I wil let the blogger speak for the artist.

Lastly, here directly is the image. Enjoy!
