In preparing for a celestial concert, Lucifer suffers a crisis of faith. He wants more than anything to do what his God commands, but how does he know what God wants?

The Wheel of Time is renowned for its world building, but much of the backstory is delivered in bits and pieces at different times in different places and it’s not always easy to put the pieces together. This post will try to put some of those pieces together and explain how the history of Cairhien and Andor interact with the Aiel and the Dragon.
