The Great Hunt

The Great Hunt consists of a prologue and 50 chapters. The main story is about a group of young heroes, namely Rand al'Thor, Mat Cauthon, and Perrin Aybara, ta'veren all, who join Shienaren soldiers in a quest to get the Horn of Valere out of enemy hands. At the same time, Egwene al'Vere, Nynaeve al'Meara, and Elayne Trakand go to the White Tower in Tar Valon to begin learning the ways of the Aes Sedai. And finally, in a distant land, a strange group of people start an invasion of the western coast.


David Wenham as Ingtar Shinowa- Shienaran Lord. Lord Agelmar charges him to lead the band of soldiers to recover the Horn of Valere. His sign is the Gray Owl.

Sela Ward as Siuan Sanche- The Flame of Tar Valon, Watcher of the Seals, the Amyrlin Seat. She is of Tairen birth, and was born with the spark of saidar in her. She was the youngest Amyrlin ever chosen, being only thirty when she was given the position. Along withMoraine, she dedicated her life as a member of the Blue Ajah to finding the Dragon Reborn. Only Siuan, Moiraine, and Verin know who that individual is, except for Rand, Mat, Perrin, Egwene, and Nynaeve.

Matthew John Armstrong as Hurin- A "sniffer," one who can "smell" evil. His ability has nothing to do with the One Power, but Aes Sedai always seem nervous around abilities they do not understand, especially in men, so he usually keeps quiet around them.

Megan Fox as Selene- Woman that Rand saves from a grolm in the alternate universe he reached accidentally by Portal Stone. She is described by Loial as "perfect human beauty in face and form." She is very knowledgeable about the Age of Legends, to the extent that Rand is suspicious that the amount of information she knows may not be available even in the Royal Library in Cairhien. She also knows about the Oneness, what Rand calls the Void. She also knows exactly how to use the Portal Stones, even though she insists she does not. As with many characters, it is likely that Selene is hiding her true identity....

Chow Yun Fat as Turak- Leader of Those Who Come Before (i.e. the Seanchan raiders). His head is shaved bald, and his fingernails are about an inch long. He wears a long, blue silk robe brocaded with birds that drags on the floor for a long distance behind him. He has a collection of cuendillar figurines, including (thanks to the addition he took from Bayle Doman's ship) two seals on the Dark One's prison. It is these seals that Moraine finds broken after the battle at Falme.

Jay Laga'aia as Bayle Domon- An Illianer, captain of the Spray. He collects old things, and includes in his collection a seal on the Dark One's prison. He does not know that the item is a seal on the prison, only that it is made of cuendillar, heartstone, and that all heartstone objects are very rare and valuable. It is this seal that Turan adds to his cuendillar collection and that Moraine finds shattered after the battle at Falme.

Bette Midler as Verin Sedai- Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She is one of only three Aes Sedai that know the Rand al'Thor is the Dragon Reborn, the other two being Moraine and the Amyrlin Seat.. Verin is old, even for an Aes Sedai, but the only indication that she is as old as she is is the slight tinge of gray in her hair. She is one of the Aes Sedai outside the Amyrlin's chambers when Moraine is summoned.

Micheal Clarke Duncan as the voice of Loial-An Ogier from Stedding Shangtai, quite fond of books. He is about ninety years old, which (by Ogier standards) is hardly old enough to leave the stedding alone. He is addressed as Loial Kiseran by the Amyrlin Seat, but it is unclear whether this name is Loial's last name or is a general title used for all Ogier. ßPin It
