*** In [[WizardsFirstRule the original book]], it's explicitly stated that naming a Seeker is a question of recognising an existing character trait rather than bestowing power on someone - when political appointments have been attempted, they've ended... badly.

* The [[SapientSteed Companions]] of the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' are the Choosers of [[TheChosenMany The Many]]. Each Companion sets out to find a Herald to [[BondCreatures bond to]] when the time is right ([[PubertySuperpower often around puberty), BecauseDestinySaysSo. Criteria include the potential for PsychicPowers and IncorruptiblePurePureness. Once the Herald is Chosen, the Companion acts as a mentor until the Herald is trained, and a partner ([[CoolHorse and mount]]) for the rest of both of their lives. The Companions also choose Valdemar's rulers, since only a member of the royal family who is also a Herald can be king or queen. Valdemar's southern neighbor, Rethwellen, also has a means of choosing a good ruler, a magical sword that glows and "sings" when the proper heir approaches it.

** In ''Literature/SkinGame'', [[spoiler:Murphy proves herself incapable of being the Chooser: she uses ''Fidelacchius'' to fight and kill an enemy- which causes the Sword to shatter. She later gives ''Amoracchius'' back to Harry, acknowledging that she doesn't have enough discipline to refrain from using it.]]
