Who Are the Seanchan in ‘The Wheel of Time’ Season 2?

During the first season of The Wheel of Time, people in the West talked about ships. Strange things also happen in the West in season two. There is where the Seanchan people, who say “Shawn-chan,” came from. Who are the Seanchan, though? Well, they have a long past in The Wheel of Time books, but we’ll sum it up.

In “The Wheel of Time,” the country of Seanchan is on a continent called “Seanchan.” It is a long way across the Aryth Ocean west of the mainland. Artur Hawkwing sent a fleet across the seas after the Trolloc Wars. This was the same fight that caused Manetheren to fall. Artur’s son, Luthair Paendrag, was in charge of the ship.

This was the beginning of the Consolidation, which lasted about 800 years. This made the Seanchan Empire, which was run by an Empress or an Emperor and had a very strict class system.

The Seanchan want to go back to where their ancestors used to live. We call this the Return. In The Wheel of Time’s world, the Seanchan have been preparing for the Return for a long time.

They are coming in large numbers with strong fighters, some of whom are channelers who have been made to work for them. All of these things come into play in the second season of The Wheel of Time when the Seanchan attack a town without warning and take the Shienarans and Loial.

The Seanchan in Season 2 of The Wheel of Time

People who just started watching The Wheel of Time on Prime Video might be surprised by how the first season ends. The west coast of a country we love but can’t name is full of ships. On the ships, there is a strong force, with scary armor that looks like monster skin and what looks like Aes Sedai being held prisoner.

There was no sign that they were coming, except for a comment Maigan (Sandy McDade) made to Moiraine (Rosamund Pike) in Episode 6.

At the end of Season 1, they threw the One Power into the ocean, which caused a wave that destroyed the coast. The Seanchan are an evil military force that has come to take over, and they will play a big role in Season 2. Their arrival changes the world and our main characters in big ways, so it’s easy to see why they are controversial outside of the books.

The Seanchan kingdom comes from the same country as the kingdom. They say that they are related to Artur Hawkwing, a legendary figure from the past who brought the Westlands together and that they have come to take the Westlands as their own. At the end of the first season, they show up and might make a wave that destroys the coast.

The second book by Robert Jordan that this season is based on, The Great Hunt, says that the Seanchan have landed in Falme and taken it over. The Seanchan Empire brings a lot of horror to the story, but their deadly takeover of the city is just the beginning.
