"Heron Boy"

Swirling and slashing, the sword whirled gracefully
Herons inscribed on the hilt telling of blademaster,
Even melting sun made it shine fivefold,
       as a slash and thrust it took
       deep in enemies' breastplate, befalling High Lords,
Magnificient yet was the one who grasped the sword
never trained until a Warder taught him,
       as like a whirlwind he became a weapon,
       one with the sword, one with Manetheren,
like a heron he danced with blade in hand
meeting stroke to stroke like lightning;
The Sword of Manetheren he wielded,
fierce blood of the Two Rivers folk he had,
never willing to give up, no matter how severe the price.
And his name was Rand al'Thor.

Okay, no problem, I can try and help.... all I am saying here is that Rand al'Thor is one of the Two Rivers folk, and they are very stubborn people by nature. If Rand wants to win an argument, or achieve some goal, he will never give up. And the prophecies say that his blood will lie on the rocks of Shayol Ghul in the final battle because he's the Dragon Reborn, but he's going to do anything to make it the way he wants it. Just the drift that caught me.

Just in case you're wondering what crazy fantasy novel I'm getting the ideas from, it's the Wheel of Time series... by Robert Jordan.... anyway, hope this helped, and the book's addictive. *at least for me*
