Want to know more about Demandred?
This essay, which was unable to be written before the latest book, or published before this last week, discusses Demandred's character development and the parallels behind his deeds. It is the 9th in the Forsaken and their Parallels series and is available here in the Thirteenth Depository Reference Library, ahead of A Memory of Light updates of the older library articles.
Demandred is an analogue of a few generals, a couple of traitors, and also some mythological figures, some monstrous, some not. And there is the odd gambler.
Warning: there are, of course, spoilers for A Memory of Light.
Here are my other essays on the Forsaken (which have NOT yet been updated for AMOL), for those interested:
