Tower Sworn Interview

January 15, 2022

Why did you choose Brown?

I was drawn to the Brown ajah because it’s relaxed and doesn’t take itself too seriously while staying focused on what really matters. We also have an excellent sense of humour

Are you like the Browns in the books? Do you love books and have a tendency to daydream?

The Browns in the books seemed more focused on their thoughts than daydreaming but okay. I used to daydream constantly but I don't really anymore, only occasionally. I don't miss the things in my life that I used to daydream about anymore. And yes, I love books, don't we all?

Do you have a favorite Brown Ajah character from the novels?

Verin is one of my favourite characters overall so definitely her

How long have you been a fan of the Wheel of Time series?

Over twenty years, since 2001, I think

How did you first get into the series?

A friend recommended the series to me. By recommend I mean she demanded I read it, lol. I don't do anything I don't want to though so the fact that I did is a great endorsement of the series

Who is your favorite "hero"?


Favorite bad guy/gal?


Favorite book and scene?

I usually say The Shadow Rising as I am a huge Age of Legends nerd, lol. Favourite scene is difficult though, especially as I don’t want to spoil things

If you were set down in Randland, who/what would you see yourself as? An Aes Sedai? Innkeeper? Seanchan Captain?

I would like to be an Aes Sedai tbh. The freedom would suit me. I don't like people telling me what to do. So I would probably be a Blue or Brown, either away or busy in the library

How did you find TarValon.Net and what convinced you to stay and become Tower Sworn?

I saw someone who had "Volunteer at TarValon.Net" or some such in their Facebook profile and since I was doing a reread I decided to check it out. Even though a friend recommended the series to me and my brother has also read it, I've never had anyone to discuss it with. Sounded fun

What do you do in "real life"?

My absolute best

Do you have any hobbies?

I game and listen to books mostly. Also do some papercrafting and dog training

What kind of music do you enjoy listening to?

Doom metal, folk, hard rock, Queen. Freddie is a God

What are some of your favorite movies / television shows?

OZ, American Horror Story, 300, Star Wars, LoTR/Hobbit, MCU

Aside from The Wheel of Time, what are a few of your favorite books/series?

Everything by Tolkien, Realm of the Elderlings, Cosmere, First Law

What profession did you want to have when you were a kid?

History professor, marine biologist, lawyer
