DM News:Amazon reveals Tam's sword

Recommended Posts

Amazon's official WoTonPrime social media accounts revealed today a brief video showcasing Tam al'Thor's iconic heron-marked sword. The video showed how the sword went through its design phase to becoming an actual prop seen in the show.




This is the first official glimpse of a notable prop seen in the show. 


Tam al'Thor is played by Game of Thrones alumni actor Michael McElhatton. (View all of the announced cast here.)


About Tam's sword (spoilers for books 1-2)

In the Wheel of Time books, Tam al'Thor, Rand's adoptive father, received a heron-marked sword during his time as a soldier. The heron marking indicates that he reached the rank of a blade master. At the beginning of the book series, which takes place approximately 20 years after he earned the sword, Tam has long retired the blade to his attic. He gives it to Rand on Winternight because he fears ominous danger lurking near their remote home. Rand keeps the sword for the duration of his adventures in the first two novels. The sword is ultimately destroyed during his battle with Ba'alzamon over the city of Falme. 


The sword seen in this video is likely to feature a prominent role in season 1 of Amazon's Wheel of Time TV show
