The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, and Age long past, a wind rose among the Caralain Grasslands. The wind was not the beginning, there are neither Beginnings nor endings to the turning of The Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.
The wind blew through fields of grass as it approached the Braem Wood. It blew around a once thriving Stedding with its ancient trees. It blew through the forest of younger growth snatching up the yellowing leaves as it went. It blew through a small clearing in the woods filled with colorful wagons of all shapes and sizes. The wind picked up sounds of flutes and laughter as it swirls among the bright fires surrounding the encampment. Sounds of dogs barking and snarling fills the wind, and just as quickly as it began, the wind went, and with it, went the merriment.
Large creatures burst from the trees, strange creatures with the heads of animals and the bodies of overly large humans. The encampment erupted in mass confusion. The trollocs quickly overcame the defending dogs and set upon the people around the fires. The Tuatha’an had no defenses, the Way of the Leaf did not allow for such. People began screaming and falling to the trollocs’ blades. A small child huddled next to his mothers’ body. A large trolloc with the head of a bear showed his teeth in a hellish smile. The boy cried and trembled, but was too afraid to leave his mothers’ side. The trolloc reached the boy and lifted his weapon…
The Bear Headed trolloc burst into flame, smile still on his lips. A small party galloped into the now burning wagons. Men with color shifting cloaks lay about the remaining trollocs while a two women sat high on their horses. Wherever they looked, the trollocs burst into flames. In mere seconds the trollocs lie dead. The warders gathered the survivors. Each and every one staring at the women in awe, “ Aes Sedai…”
