    Hello, I am Alastern. I have been a big fan of WoT for a many years and have recently started to branch out into the WoT community. Made it to my first JordanCon this year and heard a lot about TarValon.net, so decided after talking to some other members I would check it out.

    It was recommended that I discuss my favorite WoT Character, but I am finding that terribly difficult. Of the 3 main Taveren, I think I am most like Perrin, although I also love Androl. Basil Gill may also be a little closer to who I am. I do find Padan Fain a terribly interesting character, though I cannot say I relate to or like him.

    I am also a lover of the world and books/movies of the Harry Potter Universe. I am a Ravenclaw, and find it easier to associate myself with a character from that world, as I relate strongly to Jacob, though Arthur Weasley is probably a close second. Many of my friends insist they see me as Neville but I don't see it.

    I am from the Kansas City Area and work as a Medical Assistant and Medical Office Specialist. While that is my job, my true passion is the theater. I have been in this area for a little over a year now and have been performing as much as I possibly can, recently having the opportunity to play a dream role as the lead in one of my favorite musicals.

    And with that I have run out of things to say! I am excited to get involved here and see what this community is all about!

    I certainly plan to! April was my first Con of any kind ever and I'm told it gets better each year :)

    I joined right after my first JordanCon 2012. Thought up my name on the drive home. :-)

    I haven't been part of a site like this, never posted on a forum or in a chatroom before. Whole lot of new this year!

    Welcome! I am glad we are part of the “new” things this year. We are pretty amazing if I do say so myself.

    Feel free to ask questions any and all are to help. :)

    Welcome to Tar Valon! :joy I like Perrin and Androl too. :lol Though, I have to say, my favorite character in the series is Aviendha, with Siuan as a VERY close second.

    Also, I'm a Hufflepuff. :giggle If you have any questions about the forums, feel free to ask! ^^

    Welcome!
    And congrats on being half way to having had both of your dream roles!
    If I remember correctly, we had a member play Dragon in that at one point.

    Thank you! Amazing show and Dragon is a great role! Also super appropriate it seems for a group such as this!
