Al’Lan Mandragoran, is Lord of the Seven towers, Lord of the Lakes, True Blade of Malkier, May He Sever the Shadow, Dai’shan. Commonly known as Lan, he is the uncrowned King and last survivor of the royal line of Malkier; his kingdom was swallowed by the Great Blight shortly after his birth. Lan is often described as having a face of stone and chilling blue eyes. There is little that can defeat him in physical combat.
Lan was born in 953 NE, the year Malkier was betrayed to the Shadow. When he was an infant and Malkier was falling, his parents placed the sword of the Malkieri kings in his hands, named him Dai’shan, Diademed Battle Lord of the Malkieri, and swore the ancient oath of Malkieri kings and queens in his name. His mother placed a locket around his neck for remembrance and twenty of Malkier’s best swordsmen carried him to Fal Moran in Shienar. Only five reached the city, all wounded. The surviving men taught the child all they knew of weapons and fighting the Blight.
When Lan was fifteen, Edeyn Arrel made herself his Carneira, first love. After their first night in bed, she cut Lan’s hair to his shoulders, and kept a lock of it, called the daori, which she intended to give her daughter Iselle Arrel, whom she planned to marry to Lan. Edeyn would later raise the Golden Crane for Lan and began raising an army of Borderlanders for him.
At age sixteen Lan was given the hadori, a thin strip of braided leather holding his hair back, and became a man. He began his one man war against the Shadow that he could not win, with the oath graven on his mind. To stand against the shadow so long as iron is hard and stone abides. To defend the Malkieri while one drop of blood remains. To avenge what cannot be defended. He has nothing left to defend, only to avenge. He will court death himself without a second thought.
At some point Elyas Machera teaches Lan much about the Blight and about using the sword.
Moiraine Sedai met Lan in Kandor while searching for the Dragon Reborn after the Aiel War. He managed to throw her into a pond, and she threw a pond onto him. After a battle with the Black Ajah and losing Bukama Marenellin
- the last of the men that carried him to Shienar - he became her warder in 979 NE. About twenty years later Moiraine disappears for 6 months and returns with a man named Georg, claiming a Portal Stone took her to another world.
