    General Keno- uhm, no, wrong universe. Hello, the free people of Tar Valon! I am Lyndo Shiranui(I took that last name from a character named Genma Shiranui from Naruto because I wanted a name which looks like an Arafellin one[well, I hope so]) from Arafel. My real name is Emir and I am from Turkey. I'm happy to be here! I would like to answer all of the questions that are suggested to us for introduction.

    1. Who is your favorite character in The Wheel of Time and why?
    -I thought a lot on this and I think it's Siuan Sanche, but I can also say Cadsuane Melaidhrin and Verin Mathwin. I love these characters because I also love wisdom(sorry Browns, not like that); I mean, they know a lot of things yes but this is not what 'wisdom' means. For they can also do something useful with that knowledge and that is wisdom. And they are also a bit dignified and cool.

    2. How did you find TarValon.Net?
    -Today I saw the news about 'badalijewelry' and I thought ''Oh no, I must buy my shawl before it's too late!'' but then I realised that Aes Sedai shawls are not actually sold by it lol. Meanwhile I saw this site(Well, I had seen it before but I didn't take much time to wander it in those days.) and realised that this community is friendly and reliable(Eh, there is no Black Ajah in here and this is enough for me) enough to join. And as I can see, my favorite Ajah has brownies so there is that.

    3. What do you do? (student? job? hobbies?)
    -My last year at university(my department is International Relations[Yes, a well appropriate department for Blue Ajah... and of course, Grays... meh.])

    4. Where are you from? What languages do you speak?
    -As I said above, Turkey; Turkish, English and a bit of Spanish and Elvish.

    5. What is your favorite book or author other than Robert Jordan and The Wheel of Time?
    -The Lord of the Rings and the whole Legendarium of J.R.R. Tolkien and my favorite character is Gildor Inglorion from that universe.

    Thank you for reading. <3

    Welcome, and great name choice! Siuan and Verin are favourites of mine, too, and I'm getting a LoTR tattoo in a few months, so it looks like we have some stuff in common :lol

    I hope you enjoy looking around the Tower.

    You're automatically my favorite person! ^^ Welcome!

    And of course there's no Black Ajah here. The Black Ajah is merely a vicious rumor spread about by the enemies of the White Tower. :shifty

    Welcome! It looks like you've already been poking around a bit. Feel free to ask any questions!
    Quenya or Sindarin?

    Thank you all!

    Mostly Sindarin, because we can not use the High Elvish outside of Imladris anymore.
