Wheel of Time: Who’s Your Favorite Ta’veren?

Ta’veren are people around whom the Wheel of Time specifically weaves the Pattern with all surrounding life-threads.  These people are spun out and used by the Wheel to correct itself when the weave begins to drift from the intended Pattern. Ta’veren appear to affect the Pattern based on their own personalities and skills.

Rand al’Thor

“Only a battle lost is sadder than a battle won.”

Rand al’Thor is the main protagonist of the series.  He is the Dragon Reborn, the champion of the Light in the battle against the Dark one, the prophesied savior and breaker of the world, and the reincarnated soul of Lews Therin Telamon. By far the most powerful ta’veren in the present-day world, and possibly the most powerful in history, is Rand al’Thor. His presence in an area causes any number of completely unpredictable and improbable occurrences, from throwing the laws of chance completely askew to two young people who can’t stand each other suddenly marrying.


Perrin Aybara

“Hope is like a piece of string when you’re drowning.  It just isn’t enough to get you out by itself.”

Perrin Aybara is one of the main protagonists in the series.  He is Lord of the Two Rivers, ta’veren, and a wolfbrother, as well as husband to the Queen of Saldaea. Perrin Aybara’s ta’veren nature tends strongly to manifest in influencing people, causing people to do or say things they otherwise would not.


Matrim Cauthon

“I’m a gambler, a farm boy, and I’m here to take command of your bloody army.”

Matrim Cauthon is one of the main characters of the series.  He is the Marshal-General of the Band of the Red Hand, and the husband of the Empress of the Seanchan empire, as well as one of the greatest generals the world has ever seen.  Mat Cauthon’s twisting of the Pattern manifests as a warping of the laws of chance, and tends to be limited to a fairly local area. It most often manifests as extreme good luck for Mat, as well as apparently warning him of important events to come.
