Warning: Spoilers for A Memory of Light under spoiler text.
The Dark Prophecy that Moridin shows to Graendal in Towers of Midnight was:
Lo, it shall come upon the world that the prison of the Greatest One
shall grow weak, like the limbs of those who crafted it. Once again, His
glorious cloak shall smother the Pattern of all things, and the Great
Lord shall stretch forth His hand to claim what is His. The rebellious
nations shall be laid barren, their children caused to weep. There shall
be none but Him, and those who have turned their eyes to His majesty.
In that day, when the One-Eyed Fool travels the halls of mourning, and
the First Among Vermin lifts his hand to bring freedom to Him who
will Destroy, the last days of the Fallen Blacksmith's pride shall come.
Yea, and the Broken Wolf, the one whom Death has known, shall fall and
be consumed by the Midnight Towers. And his destruction shall bring
fear and sorrow to the hearts of men, and shall shake their very will itself.
And then shall the Lord of the Evening come. And He shall take our
eyes, for our souls shall bow before Him, and he shall take our skin, for
our flesh shall serve Him, and He shall take our lips, for only Him will
we praise. And the Lord of the Evening shall face the Broken Champion,
and shall spill his blood and bring us the Darkness so beautiful. Let the
screams begin, O followers of the Shadow. Beg for your destruction!
Towers of Midnight, Epilouge
What was the meaning?
I think the obvious interpretations are:
- "Greatest One" \ "Great Lord" \ "Lord of the Evening" = Shai'tan
- One Eyed Fool = Mat
- First Among Vermin = Logain, as he broke the seals.
- Fallen Blacksmith = Perrin
- Broken Champion = Rand
The main mysteries come in the middle paragraph.
What were the halls of mourning?
Who was the Broken Wolf, who Death had known?
Rodel Ituralde, nicknamed "The Wolf" / "Little Wolf". How had Death known him?
Was "Midnight Towers" a reference to the Forsaken?
