Some three thousand years later, in the story's modern day, a PowerTrio of young men--FarmBoy Rand, GuileHero Mat and TheBlacksmith Perrin--were living out their lives in a small village... Until a mysterious woman called [[TheObiWan Moiraine]] showed up, followed shortly thereafter by an attack by ([[AllMythsAreTrue to them]]) mythical monsters. According to Moiraine, the three were "''ta'veren''," an [[{{Fictionary}} Old Tongue]] word meaning "MainCharacters," and the Dark One itself was after them. Possibly, one of them might be "[[TheChosenOne The Dragon Reborn]]", the {{reincarnation}} of Lews Therin Telamon who would lead the forces of good against the rise of evil--and, like any male channeler, [[DestructiveSavior go mad]]. Moiraine was sent in to find him, [[SaveThisPersonSaveTheWorld protect him]], teach him to channel ([[GenderRestrictedAbility if possible]]), keep him sane (if possible) and prepare him (whichever one "he" is) (FirstEpisodeSpoiler: it's Rand) for the fight. For the [[CosmicKeystone seven seals]] on the Dark One's [[SealedEvilInACan can]] are starting to weaken, and TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt is approaching, and if there is to be any hope for all creation, there's a lot of work to be done. For prophecy says that The Dragon Reborn ''can'' defeat The Dark One... but not that he ''will''.

->"''The Wheel of Time turns, and ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legends fade to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the third age by some, [[ForegoneConclusion an Age yet to come, an age long past,]] a wind rose in [[[MadLibsCatchPhrase a location]]]. The wind was not the beginning.
