Attack on Shoyul Ghoul
Rand looks much like an Aiel. He is considered to be tall in the Westlands, though with the Aiel his height isn’t so distinguishable. His hair has a reddish tint to it, and he has gray eyes. He looks very much like his birth mother, Tigraine. His hands has a heron imprinted on them and both arms have sinuous dragon tatoos winding up them
Like all of the people from the Two Rivers, Rand can give a mule lessons in stubbornness. In his younger years, he had a taste for pranks, and often accompanied Mat on his famous escapades.
One of the most interesting characteristics that Rand acquires as the series progresses is the voice of Lews Therin Telamon speaking to him in his head. Most of the time, the voice is fairly crazy, and Rand thinks that he must be going insane from the taint on saidin. Other times, Lews Therin seems to be almost sane, and actually helps Rand get out of a few scrapes. Rand doesn’t tell many people about it, as he is afraid that they will also think that he is going crazy; Min and Cadsuane are two of the only people who know about the voice.
As the Dragon Reborn, Rand has many talents when it comes to the One Power, aside from being very strong where saidin is concerned. His talents include the ability to Travel and use Balefire. One of the rare talents he has is to be able to block a gateway open; Asmodean is astounded, because only Demandred, Semirhage and Lews Therin had been able to do that. However, he is not very good at Healing.
As the series progresses, Rand finds that he suddenly has talent for both drawing and playing the flute; both of these talents came from Lews Therin Telamon.
