Lews Therin Telamon was the Dragon during the War of Power. He was the leader of the forces of Light and was well respected all over the world. He was as strong in the Power as a man could be and was the "First Among Servants."

At the end of the War of Power Lews Therin and the Hundred Companions took it on themselves to seal the Bore with the seven Seals without the aid of the female channelers. While this plan succeeded in temporarily closing the Bore, the Dark One tainted saidin in his counter-stroke. Many of the companions went insane instantly, including Lews Therin himself. Lews Therin returned to kill all of his family and many friends, causing people to later re-name him "Lews Therin Kinslayer".

Lews Therin Telamon was the incarnation of the Dragon during the War of Power. He was the leader of the forces of Light and was well respected well-respected all over the world. He was as strong in the Power as a man could it is possible to be and was the "First Among Servants."

At
" Though he was known for a long-running romantic liaison with Mierin Eronaile, the end true love of his life, his eventual wife and the War mother of Power his children, was Ilyena Moerelle Dalisar, called "Sunhair" for her [[HeroesWantRedheads red]]-and-[[HairOfGoldHeartOfGold gold]] tresses.

Lews Therin was responsible for ending the last War of Power, which he did with a back-up plan. The original thought was to create two obscenely powerful {{Amplifier Artifact}}s: the Choedan Kal, ''sa'angreal'' so potent that a man and a woman channeling through them could together [[ApocalypseHow/ClassZ unmake all creation]]. With such tools at their disposal, the relatively modest goal of erecting a barrier around the Bore could be achieved, one strong enough to contain the Dark One until the Bore itself could be closed. Unfortunately, the Choedan Kal could not be safely used without special "access key" ''ter'angreal'', and these were seized (undoubtedly unknowingly) by the Shadow. Even worse, the women of the Hall of Servants refused to consider any other plan. This led Lews Therin to fish out his back-up plan: travel straight to the Bore and plug it with a makeshift cork anchored by seven pieces of ''cuendillar'', thus [[SealedEvilInACan Sealing Evil Back In Its Can]]. He and the Hundred Companions took it on themselves Companions, men to seal the Bore with the seven Seals without the aid of a man, resolved to go.

Well, we know what happened next; and if Latra Posae Decume had not led

Many of the companions went insane instantly, including as well? Rand's fight would be hopeless if so. In any case, after Lews Therin himself. Lews Therin returned to kill went insane, he killed all of his family and many friends, causing people earning the epithet "Kinslayer." In the meanwhile, the seven seals themselves were passed to later re-name him "Lews Therin Kinslayer". the next Amyrlin, which is why she's called "The Watcher of the Seals" today; it's something of a state secret, though, that they were lost during the Trolloc Wars and nobody's know where they've gotten to for about two thousand years.
