Alendi is a Seeker[1] and ruler from Khlennium on Scadrial, and author of Alendi's journal.

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Little of Alendi's appearance is known, however Kwaan's inscription does mention a few of his features. Kwaan says that he is very tall, towering over most others and has a bearing that demands respect. [2] He also has a birthmark on his arm and his hair turned grey when he was barely twenty five, minor details which served to further convince Kwaan that he was the Hero of Ages. [3]


He was the son of a blacksmith.[4] As a young man, he met the Worldbringer Kwaan, who hired him as an assistant. [5] After a few years together, Kwaan slowly became convinced that Alendi was the prophesied Hero of Ages, when Alendi himself discovered this, he encouraged the belief, and actively attempted to persuade the rest of the world that it was the truth.[6] To this end, he began attempting to fulfill the Terris Prophecies concerning the Hero of Ages. In doing so, he became a powerful ruler and spent a decade conquering the known world. He was famed as a great warrior and leader.

It was years before Kwaan realized his mistake. He tried to rescind his declaration that Alendi was the Hero of Ages, but by that point, it was already too late to convince the other Worldbringers.

Out of desperation to stop Alendi, who was by this point preparing to travel to the Well of Ascension, Kwaan instructed his nephew, Rashek to do everything in his power to lead Alendi away from the Well, and to kill him as a last resort. Alendi was murdered by Rashek when they arrived at the Well despite the Terrisman's best efforts. After killing Alendi, Rashek took the power of the Well of Ascension for himself, and managed to keep the World from being destroyed.
