Reference Library Updates after The Gathering Storm: three more articles updated.

By Linda

Three articles were updated with information from The Gathering Storm today:

Ages of the Characters

Likely ages for eight characters were added, including Captain Chubain, Harine and Hurin.

Animal Symbolism

Most of the entries were for Siuan and Bryne, although there was one for Rand.

Number Symbolism

Three new numbers were added and some others were augmented.

All further information is under the spoiler alert.

One of the new numbers is Twenty-two:

It was on the twenty-second level of the White Tower that Egwene fought the Seanchan and drove them away. Twenty two is twice eleven, a double helping of excess, sin, danger, conflict and rebellion (Jack Tressider, Symbols and Their Meanings). Quite apt really, considering Egwene’s role in The Gathering Storm and the savagery of the Seanchan raid she repelled.
