WoT - 'I love all my Forsaken' by shorelle WoT - 'I love all my Forsaken' by shorelle

that feel when your incorporeal Dark Lord cbf coming up with a Cool Villain Name for his least fav follower :XD:

just a silly comic based on this meme post, and because I can't get over learning that Asmodean literally means “Musician” according to the official Wheel of Time companion book poor Asmo, this is why I love you

(I know that the Dark One would refer to them as Chosen rather than Forsaken, and also that it's actually a meaningful name because Asmodean's identity and whole reason for turning to the Shadow was music... it's just also funny this way XD)

Almost to the Companion. Halfway through TOM. Been reading this series for a few years now. Would've been done sooner but life got in the way and getting through a few books of any series is enough to make you want to have a palette cleanse so as to not get bored or tired of the series.

Anyway Asmo wasn't ever really my favorite of the Forsaken, I know he has a sizable fan base, but even I think he got the short end of the bloody stick. Heck he didn't even get a hold of the stick. He got a better deal than Bel'al who only appeared for *thinks* three chapters?

Apparently there were more than 13 forsaken during the Age of Legends. And it makes sense given the sample we see in the books...

The deputy: Ishamael
The heavy hitters: Demandred, Semirhage, Graendal, Sammael, Lanfear, Mesaana
Some fairly competent middle-level types: Rahvin, Be'lal, Balthamel
A few one-trick-ponies: Moghedien, Aginor

And for some reason, also Asmodean.

That's a nice summary of the Forsaken we see in the books!

And ahahaha yep, Asmodean always did seem like the odd one out (as a full-time career musician of all things...) - according to the additional materials he was a good administrator though, so I guess he was useful for doing the paperwork after the other Forsaken conquered their territories. (Well, someone's got to do it!) :XD:

I did not know that's what his name meant. Now I do. And I'm amused.

Story of his life, really.

Weren't the names given to them by the public (outside of Lanfear's, I mean)? It speaks, uh, well for Asmodean that he was bad at being a villain that "musician" was the worst nickname they could think of.

Anyway, love the facial expressions!

Haha yep, that was basically my reaction when I learned what his name meant! :P

(and yeah, their names were given to them by the public actually! good catch – it was just simplified for the meme, so I rolled with it ;)) Asmodean as a villain who's just bad at being bad pretty much sums it up really XD

And thank you so much!

Aww, thank you! It's an epic fantasy series that's a good read - it's 14 books long though, so does take a bit of time! :P

Hopefully I'll get around to reading it :)

At my local library, they never have any complete book series except for Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and maybe ASOIAF CURSE YOU!
