DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Who are some characters you wish you had gotten to see MORE of in the series???


Recommended Posts

Tam. Really would love to read his prequel story.

Loial. Miss the big guy.

Logain. He's been missing nearly as long as Demandred.

Uno. Flam... How can you not like Blo.. Uno? Hard to put much more in but just a snippet here and there maybe?

I just realized that I'm kind of interested in Mili Skane, b.k.a. Lady Shiaine. She is interesting to me... Well, I just read Carridin's view with her around, otherwise I'd have forgotten her. But I like how she was a nobody and became a pretty important Darkfriend.

Mazrim Taim

 

What... the... F***.

 

Enter Mazrim Taim, as if he were a new major character. Have him front-and-centre at Dumai's Wells, then basically ignore his existence for 7 books.

 

Read through most of the thread, there are a few mentions of Taim, many more for Logain. While at this point I almost agree, because Logain has become awesome we wish we had had more, but Taim's potential to be such a wildcard through the series was huge, and now he's generally relegated to some random bad, not even a big bad, at least in the readers eyes.

 

It's like Demandred, took the suspense so far you killed it, now there's only 1 book left and other things the readers feel should be focused on more.

 

Asmo would have been cool too I think, now that I see some suggestions. Odd that Asmo, Taim, Logain often come as a bunch from people. That's WOT for ya I guess, archetypes for all. Shame the bad ass cocky wildcard(-ish) guys got ignored. Instead we had to put up with, "But I don't want to be a Lord!"

I really could have done with a lot more Taim and Logain and a lot less Alviarin and Elaida, and Romanda and Lelaine. I guess RJ wanted to keep the mystery around the Ashaman.

Would have liked to see some Tam pov during the Faile kidnapped by Shaido plot line, heck the pov from any other character in Perrin's camp besides Perrin's own would be an improvement.

 

Also would love to have more Aviendha after she meets up with Elayne. Or rather that she had something to actually do once she meets up with Elayne besides essentially being a sidekick to her.

More of the true Thom Merrilin in the early books not the Thom that was shunted aside later in the series. Guy could have been a legend instead hes a tag along for over half the series

Tam and Abell, tbh. I enjoy reading about them.

 

 

Yes, a slight gripe I have with RJ is the lack of friendships. Most of the characters' relationships are either with someone they love or a "work" relationship rather than friendship.

Definitely more Faile. I'd take a few cuts in Perrin's POVs to get a few more of Faile's, definitely ^^ Glad to see I'm not the only one. (Oh, BTW: "A woman who claims to be strong, but insists on having a man who obeys her completely and is incapable of thinking or acting for himself, and will put up with whatever abuse she dishes out with no more than a slight grumble, isn't strong at all - she's weak, and she needs a weaker man to make her feel stronger. A woman who is truly strong needs a strong man. And, the stronger a woman is, the stronger she needs her partner to be"- so true. And the reverse is also true, of course. A man who wants a partner who just agrees with him and obeys him has no business calling himself a strong man, IMO).

 

She tricked Loial, unforgivable.

 

Tam and Abell, tbh. I enjoy reading about them.

 

Yes, a slight gripe I have with RJ is the lack of friendships. Most of the characters' relationships are either with someone they love or a "work" relationship rather than friendship.

 

This is actually so very true. Sadly true.

 

Bela could have just bucked Egwene off in Eotw and saved the world. :rolleyes:

 

Must.... resist...

I always liked Ingtar and wish we could have seen more of him. But his death and redemption was one of the more satisfying character arcs in the books. Hurin.
