* StrangledByTheRedString: Prophesied from before they even met, which Elayne [[{{In-Universe}} isn't happy about.]] They go from canoodling in alcoves (Book 4) straight to [[TheirFirstTime doing it]] (Book 9), despite not seeing each other for ''nine months'' in between. (Of course, it was eight years for readers, so they were a bit more forgiving.)

Andor is the largest and most populous country in the West. The oldest tradition of Andor is that only a queen may sit on the Lion Throne and wear the Rose Crown. The eldest daughter is known as the Daughter-Heir, and is always sent to Tar Valon to study, regardless of whether she can channel a lick. The eldest brother of the Daughter-Heir is sworn to protect her with his life, and is prepared from an early age to take control of Andor's army. He is given the title First Prince of the Sword.

Elaida Sedai had a Foretelling that the royal line of Andor would be critical to the Last Battle, and thereafter stuck with them to keep an eye on things. This prophecy was ''actually'' supposed to refer to the ''former'' Daughter-Heir, Tigraine Mantear, who received a Foretelling from ''another'' Aes Sedai, Gitara Moroso, that she had better abdicate and go east if she didn't want to [[SaveThisPersonSaveTheWorld lose the Last Battle]]. She did, leaving behind her husband Taringail Damodred and their son Galad, and sparking off a SuccessionCrisis that ended with Morgase Trakand on the Lion Throne. Foretelling being an imprecise discipline, Elaida never quite figured out that she had ended up with the wrong "royal line of Andor," but the Trakands ended up being major figures for the Light anyhow, so it all worked out in the end.

* InformedFlaw: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]]. His rigid sense of morality certainly is a flaw; even so, some characters- specifically his sister Elayne (who goes so far as to repeatedly [[IHaveNoSon deny that he is her brother]])- treat it as the [[ThisIsUnforgivable Worst Thing Ever]]; particularly petty with Elayne, where implicitly its rooted in Galad having a tendency to [[CantGetAwayWithNothing tattle on her and Gawyn]] when they were kids. Basically she gives him a lot more vitriol than she does even (other) Whitecloaks or the Red Ajah, or any other character who has far more serious KnightTemplar qualities than he. And whatever else you say about his limited ethical judgement, he at least can be said to be one of the more un-hypocritical characters in a series arguably filled with hypocrites. His outlook starts to become a great deal more informed and a lot less rigid during Book 13, and by the time of Book 14, he essentially just becomes a really good person.

* MasterSwordsman: Extremely skilled with a sword, but gains this title officially (as well as the trademark Heron-mark sword of a Blademaster) when he duels and kills [[spoiler:Eamon Valda]]. Also makes a hell of a showing against [[spoiler:Demandred]]. According to [[WordOfGod Robert Jordan's listing]] using characters known at the time of his AuthorExistenceFailure, he is the third-best swordsman in the series, behind Lan and Rand.
