Al'Lan Mandragoran, ( [http://www.dragonmount.com/RobertJordan/?p=21]) is one of the main characters of the Wheel of Time fantasy series by Robert Jordan.

Lan is very similar in characterization to Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien. Jordan described the character thus: "Lan is simply the man I always wished I could be."[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1rpdsoFTQpw]

Al'Lan Mandragoran is the last survivor of the royal line of Malkier; his kingdom was overrun by the Shadow when he was but a baby. Lan is often described as having a face of stone and chilling blue eyes. Few can defeat him in physical combat. His symbol, the symbol of the Malkieri Kings, is the golden crane.

Lan was born in 953 NE, the year Malkier was betrayed to the Shadow. When he was an infant and Malkier was falling, his parents placed the sword of the Malkieri kings in his hands, named him Dai'shan of Malkier, which literally means "Diademed Battle Lord" in the Old Tongue, and swore the ancient oath of Malkieri kings and queens in his name. His mother placed a locket around his neck for remembrance, his father the ring of Malkieri Kings, and twenty of Malkier's best swordsmen carried him to Fal Moran in Shienar. Only five reached the city alive, all wounded. The surviving men then began teaching the child all they knew, learning weapons and the Blight for a childhood.

Al'Lan Mandragoran has not been a contender in any CBUB matches.
