Hi you Dragonmount Guru's!
nice thread this, so i'll ask away. (My second post, although i've read lots on these forums)
First question that comes to my mind is this: How did the Dark One get Lanfear of the 'Land of the Finns'?
Sure, he is the Lord of the Grave, but we kinda know Moraine isn't dead, so i think it is safe to assume Lanfear/Cyndane wasn't killed by the ter'angreal either. Does he have some power in 'Finnland'?
Anyone can shed some Light here? (I am aware i made some assumptions here: Moraine=alive and Lanfear=Cyndane, but they seem pretty safe)
We don't know for sure, but the most likely answer is that she died at some point. She didn't die when she went through - a Cyndane POV states she was a prisoner of the Aelfinn and the Eelfinn, and as she mentions offering Rand the opportunity to rule the world alongside her (which lanfear did earlier in the series) we can be pretty damn sure that Cyndane is Lanfear. Also, Moiraine being alive seems near certain, due to Min's Viewings. So you're right they are safe assumptions. As it is, though, we cannot be sure about the exact circumstances of her "death". Some possibilities include killed by the Finns, killed by Moiraine, or even suicide.
Still would like to know how many sisters are nameable in the WT at present, out of the hundreds that are there. But here is another question which must have been answered before -
Is it possible Caddy has lived longer as she somehow took less oaths than the other AS?
Not really. Cadsuane has stated her belief in the importance of the Oaths, so for her to have removed one or more seems unlikely. Also, she has the ageless face, which requires more than one Oath. Also, she is just under three hundred years old - which is old, to be sure, but not so much so that it is beyond the bounds of possibility for one bound to the Three Oaths, and she is of the opinion that she probably doesn't have long to live, so it doesn't really fit with what we know.
Rand notices how folks seems happier under the Seanchan then under his rule. Does it not seem werid that Rand takes over and most folks seems angry and yet many seem to like the rule of the Seanchan? I think his relevation of this will push him to the bending a knee to the crystal throne.
Well, it's partly a result of them bringing stability to previously chaotic lands, and also that Rand is supposed to break the world again. There are reasons for the people to be in favour of the Seanchan so it is not all that weird.
Do the two Finn races like each other? The game snakes and foxes makes me wonder if they're old enemies.
Well, we don't know much about them, so we can't say for sure, but we have no real evidence of enmity, and they were both involved in holding Lanfear prisoner, showing a willingness to work together.
