A Live-Action TV adaptation of the Sword of Truth series of books. Executive produced by Sam Raimi (who also served as an executive producer for Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), Robert Tapert, Joshua Donen, Ned Nalle and Kenneth Biller.The first season roughly follows the plot of Wizard's First Rule: There's an evil wizard named Darken Rahl, who wants to use the Boxes of Orden to take over the world, and opposing him are Zeddicus Zu'l Zorander, wise and sarcastic wizard of the First Order; Kahlan Amnell, a powerful, determined and idealistic Action Girl belonging to the mighty order of the Confessors; and Richard Cypher, a kind woodsman full of compassion who is also an extremely capable fighter prophesied to become the True Seeker, using the mighty Sword of Truth to kill Rahl and save the world.While the characters, setting, and central conflict are the same as the book, other aspects of the story were changed in adaptation. The series was cancelled after its second season, but a fan campaign is going strong to try and bring it back.It is notable for (despite insane amounts of Fanservice for both genders, sometimes quickly developed and impulsive plotlines and a lot of slowed down sequences) treating the matters of free will, extremism and responsibility very extensively. It is one of the rare works which has an undisputed place on the most equal level of the Sliding Scale of Gender Inequality.Now has a character sheet.

 Legend of the Seeker / int_19120e1d
comment
There Is Another - A meta-version, and a semi-straight version. In the books, Kahlan is the last of the Confessors; here, there's still a handful left. Semi-straight version in that we see Dennee apparently get killed in the pilot, only for it to turn out she's still alive half way through the first season. The handful of surviving Confessors apparently get killed off screen over the course of the next season, leaving Kahlan to indeed be the last of her kind... At least until Denee comes Back from the Dead. She's a hard woman to keep down, Denee.

Mutual Kill - In the season 2 finale, Kahlen goes into Con Dar and instantly confesses four Mord-Sith. She then orders them to kill each other. They do so by touching each other's heart with the agiel simultaneously. Also happens in Richard's nightmare in the Fields of Perdition with Kahlan and Cara. And earlier in the first season when he uses the power of Orden.

Workplace Acquired Abilities - Richard's experience as a woodsman comes in handy on a number of occasions, such as being able to track which horse Annabelle and Fynn took because the tracks were deeper. Exploited in one episode where this is used against him, when a murderer framed a man by planting on him seeds from a particular area, knowing Richard would recognize them and implicate the man with them.

Too Dumb to Live - Many, but one of the most notable is in "Cursed", at the battle in the throne room after the D'Haran invasion. Sounds of fighting can be heard from the throne room for a good 15 seconds before the D'Haran soldiers arrive yet the two guards at the door are standing with their backs to the door with their weapons not drawn. Unsurprisingly, they are cut down within seconds.

Knight Templar - Richard quickly goes down this route when he first uses the magic of Orden, but snaps out of it. Also note: Darken Rahl, a little more so than he was in the books, and the cold-hearted Kahlan created by the amulet. How is Darken Rahl a Knight Templar when he is a Card-Carrying Villain? Rahl has claimed that he does what he does to ensure peace and stability. Granted, whether or not he's telling the truth is questionable. Considering D'Harans must be controlled by Fear as stated at the start of Season 2 it might not be too far from the truth.

Moral Dissonance - One season one episode has a secondary character who steals Richard's identity and leaves Richard behind to take his place, despite knowing that he can't use the Sword of Truth, he can't read the Book of Shadows, he isn't the Seeker and therefore, by prophecy, cannot save the world and is therefore dooming it. And then he tries to sleep with Kahlan wearing the identity of the man she loves. And we're supposed to root for him and his implied romance with the actually heroic secondary heroine of the episode.

Red Shirt - The Sisters of the Dark. Every time they show up, Richard and company end up slaying at least a half dozen of them, and that they actually wear red dresses makes it even worse. This is particularly Egregious considering that in the books, the Sisters of the Dark were some of the most powerful, intelligent, and dangerous of the Keeper's servants, and even one was considered to be a critical threat. D'Haran soldiers Anyone who Kahlan confesses has a 90% chance of being dead by the end of the episode.

Always Chaotic Evil: In universe, it is believed that all the male Confessors become monstrously evil. Richard defies this belief... but we never learn whether he is right or wrong, as the male Confessor in question gets killed offscreen before he can grow up to show it either way. However, played straight in the alternate universe son of Darken Rahl and Kahlen. The Keeper of the Underworld The Boxes of Orden would always corrupt the user unless the power is tempered by a Confessor.

Grand Theft Me - In Resurrection, Dennee is brought back and possesses the body of a recently deceased woman, and then later in the same episode, the same thing happens with Richard and a D'Haran commander. In Princess, Nicci possesses the body of another Sister of the Dark. Then, in Walter, Darken Rahl steals the body of the titular character, while Walter survives in the body of a D'haran warrior. Interestingly enough, each is also an example of Back from the Dead.

Light Is Not Good: In Season 2 Denna changes her leathers and Agiel from the usual Mord Sith red to white. But she's still evil. Nicci tries to invoke this against the Sisters of the Light, in order to trick Richard into giving up his powers to her.

Alternate Reality Episode: The result of Magic Misfire, when Zedd uses a spell to undo Cara's conditioning. Just as he warns, it has unpredictable consequences, meaning Cara never became a Mord-Sith, resulting in her never stopping Richard from using the Boxes of Orden to force Rahl's obedience. Zedd, being the caster, has Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory and is dumbfounded when he realizes he is the best man at Richard and Kahlan's wedding... with Rahl marrying them, since Richard controls him with the power of Orden. Zedd then hits the Reset Button by using the same spell on another Mord-Sith. Also in the last episode in the first season, in which Richard and Cara are sent into a future where Rahl won, and his and Kahlan's son, a male confessor, took over the world by confessing everyone, the sort of thing the other Confessors had warned Richard about earlier in the series.

Or it might be a Literal Genie thing - Richard might have told him something like, "you may not kill people anymore, except when it's necessary to protect your own life." That would have left Rahl free to sneak off every day and kill someone.

comment
Weird Moon - The episode Home features an enchantment that can only be cast when a constellation of three stars is encircled by the moon's crescent. It gets even worse, though - the spell ends when all three stars are eclipsed by the crescent portion of the moon. Not *quite* as bad as it seems. Until pretty recently, the term "star" meant "any celestial object not the Sun or the Moon." "Planet" and "comet" are from old terms for "wandering star" and "hairy star" after all.

New Super Power - When entering Con Dar (the blood rage), Kahlan gains the ability to confess anyone she wants without even touching them. When applied to Mord-Sith, they no longer die within minutes but remain loyal slaves. Nicci also gains a host of new powers after absorbing Richard's Han. Subverted in that neither needed to learn how to use these.

Magic Knight - Zedd becomes this after becoming young again and naming himself the Seeker in "Wizard." Darken Rahl may also qualify, as he possesses magical powers and is an experienced sword fighter. He used both to defeat Richard during their first encounter. Also Nicci, who is a capable combatant as well as the most powerful sorceress in the series. The Mord-Sith, who are elite women warriors, have magical powers, including the ability to ressurect recently dead people.

Early-Bird Cameo - Though the seasons have been based roughly on the first and second books, they've used characters and plot points (Jennsen and the Priestess of Casca) from much later in the series. Triana is first seen in the season 1 finale - as a skeleton. Cara identifies her in the Bad Future.

Beauty Is Never Tarnished - Averted. Kahlan and Richard are both suitably dirtied after most battles, and Jensen gets one hell of a black eye after she's attacked in "Fever". Cara also looks suitably beaten and dirty after the other Mord Sith turn on her. Finally, Nicci gets some real injuries and bruises in "Bound." However, despite being on a long-ranging quest through the woods almost constantly, everyone always has fantastic hair. Well, they're in pretty wet climates—after all, most fantasy worlds take place in forests, and this one seems to have a decent amount of rain. So they can probably wash every few days. Not to mention that magic probably helps a bit...

But I Would Really Enjoy It
 Legend of the Seeker / int_4a269bc6
comment
But I Would Really Enjoy It - Richard and Kahlan would love to sleep together, but if they do, Richard will essentially become a mindless slave, and would be unable to save the world. They manage to find a few ways around it (i.e. the anti-Confessor potion, the painter-world where magic doesn't work) but it always gets snatched away before they can take advantage of it. Kahlan does get the chance to do this when Richard is confessed by Annabelle, but she realizes that he is not doing this out of love for her and stops him. But then they sort of do, when an amulet splits Kahlan into two beings - one that embodies her sense of duty along with her Confessor power, and one that does not have the Confessor power or reasoning abilities. The interesting thing is, all throughout Season 2 they seem to be in a relationship anyway, hugging, kissing, holding hands, etc. at every opportunity. They just can't have sex.

Love Makes You Evil - Kieran, a previous Seeker, went mad with grief and started killing innocent people after his Wizard ordered his Confessor to kill herself, forcing his wizard to kill him with his own sword and trap his spirit in his remains. Worse, he possessed Richard's body and got his Confessor's spirit to possess Kahlan's, obviously not caring what either of them thought.

Tsundere - Cara, whose tsun side generally involves threatening to torture people to death, and whose dere side involves threatening to torture people to death less vocally. Defrosting as of season 2. Hell, near the end of season 2, she has a 10-minute-long walk where she talks to a wisp (that we can't hear, conveniently) and pretty much goes through every Tsundere dialogue trope around. Well, that's just VERY rapid character development. This trope shows more through Mord'Sith's different methods of torture (i.e. pain vs. pleasure), which isn't limited to Cara alone.

Fate Worse than Death: Characters in Season 2 that die are shown/implied to enter the underworld, which is described as waking up in "a pit of unimaginable suffering." Though it may depend on the person, being a baneling and having to kill others every day to stay alive. As time runs out, a baneling's body begins to rot and feels a gnawing hunger before death. Before dying, a baneling said she found going to the Keeper's domain preferable to continue what she had become.

Race Lift
 Legend of the Seeker / int_5e062124
comment
Race Lift - Chase is Maori and General Trimack is black in the adaptation. Interesting in that the latter is nearly always described in the books (as in, every time he shows up) as having fiery red hair. Commander-General Trimack doesn't get much of a physical description, but the most prominent D'Haran redhead would have been General Reibisch, the military governor of Aydindril and Richard and Kahlan's right-hand-man for most of the series until the first major battle with the Imperial Order. Which is in itself interesting, as in the books Darken Rahl had a hard-on for only allowing pureblooded D'Harans into his elite Praetorian Guard and in positions of high rank. D'Haran purebloods are almost universally blond-haired, blue-eyed Aryan phenotypes, which would have made Reibisch (and Trimack, if true) very much exceptions to the rule. Reibisch, at least, was explicitly noted as being half-D'Haran in his first appearance, which is why Richard had to win him and his troops over. The First file is explicitly stated to be all pure D'Haran, Trimack at least has the blue eyes, we can assume the hair as well.

Pragmatic Adaptation - In the book series, the Sword of Truth instantly slices through anything its wielder wants it to, including other swords. But sword fights are cooler on TV, so this ability isn't brought up.

Mythology Gag - The first time you see Jennsen is her tending to her goat, and previews of the second season show Richard developing a beard, like he wore during the second book. In the first part of the season 2 finale, Sister Marianna is naked when she hears the voice of the Keeper in her dreams and rises to serve him. In the books, the Sisters of the Dark were always naked when they sat in the circle to speak with the Keeper in their dreams.

comment
Why Don't Ya Just Shoot Him? - Cara is usually the one to ask this, and almost gleefully volunteers to pull the trigger, so to speak. She's usually talked out of it by Richard, though. Kahlan also advocates this as a solution occasionally, and again, Richard usually comes up with something that'll work without killing. Averted in "Resurrection". Someone has their soul put into Richard's body while his soul is in the Underworld. They need to bring Richard's body back to town to revert the spell and the simplest solution would be to kill "Richard" and carry his body back. So Kahlan stabs him.

The one we see several times is his ability to do an Offscreen Teleportation during sword battles to stab the opponent in the back. He also has many sorcerers serving him, including a Wizard of the Second Order named Giller. The Bad Future season finale also features Nicholas Rahl, the son of Darken Rahl and Kahlen Amnell, combining his parents abilities to become an even worse tyrant than his father.

Luke, I Am Your Father - According to Rahl, Richard is his brother, but it's unclear if he was telling the truth. And before that revelation, Richard learns, Zedd is his grandfather. Confirmed at the start of season 2 by a former servant of Panis Rahl and Darken Rahl's ghost. Also confirmed by the fact that Cara's Mord'Sith powers fail when Richard dies and return when he is resurrected (Mord-Sith only have their powers as long as a Rahl is alive). This fails to take into account, though, that even as Richard (temporarily) dies, Panis Rahl is still alive at that point. He was, but the powers are linked to the Lord Rahl, and he wasn't Lord Rahl anymore by that point. Also, he'd died and come back from the dead, which might help.

Commander-General Trimack doesn't get much of a physical description, but the most prominent D'Haran redhead would have been General Reibisch, the military governor of Aydindril and Richard and Kahlan's right-hand-man for most of the series until the first major battle with the Imperial Order. Which is in itself interesting, as in the books Darken Rahl had a hard-on for only allowing pureblooded D'Harans into his elite Praetorian Guard and in positions of high rank. D'Haran purebloods are almost universally blond-haired, blue-eyed Aryan phenotypes, which would have made Reibisch (and Trimack, if true) very much exceptions to the rule.

For the rest of the show, Nicci is using Portia's body as her own, and the appearance now matches hers in the book.

Designated Girl Fight - Completely averted. The characters regularly fight enemies of both genders, with no indication that they try to focus on their own. Helps that there's no shortage of women who are just as dangerous as any man. And when there is a girl on girl fight, it's no less brutal than any other.

Children Are Innocent: Oh, very subverted. First, there's Princess Violet, who's just as much of a royal bitch as she was in the books, at about 10 years old. In the first season finale, we meet Nicholas Rahl, who Confesses a playmate and forces him to cut off his own finger because the boy didn't want to play the same games as him. Later Nicholas kills his own mother and then confesses Darken Rahl's trusted general and has him kill his father. Then in the second season, we meet a young boy whose mother became a Baneling in order to stay around and take care of him. After she dies (again), the boy is taken in by a monk. The kid then reveals himself as a Baneling, kills the monk, and cheerfully walks to the settlement he was just told has lots of other kids his age... The Listener from Season 1 plays with this. He can Read thoughts and is sold to different people, he even sees himself as an aversion until the Power of Friendship from Richard causes a Heel Face Turn.

Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male
 Legend of the Seeker / int_922324f2
comment
Double Standard Rape: Female on Male In a season 2 episode, a young Confessor who doesn't have control of her power accidentally confesses a man who saves her life. She then is implied to have had sex with him while he's brainwashed into being her slave and after the magic is released he rushes tenderly to her side. Potentially mitigated by his being clearly interested in her before he was confessed in the first place, but still. Pretty much true with every Confessor who takes a mate. They usually do it with a former enemy, and nobody thinks twice about it... except for the confessed after they are released. Kahlan's father, for instance...

A God Am I - In Season 2, a woman shows up and claims to be the Creator reborn in a mortal body. Later in the episode, it is revealed that she got her powers from all of the Sisters of the Light transferring their Han to her. She disappears at the end of the episode, and it is intentionally left ambiguous as to if she has any sort of connection to the actual Creator, though she knows things which are inexplicable otherwise. In the Season 2 finale, the Keeper enters the mortal realm in the body of a boy.

Deus ex Machina - In the final episode all seems lost, Richard was tricked into giving the Stone of Tears to the Keeper, and Kahlen kills him while under the control of Nicci. However, her tears turn into another Stone of Tears for some reason and they are able to seal the rift after Cara revives Richard with the breath of life. Apparently it was the Power of Love that made the Stone of Tears, that was pretty out of the blue to say the least Justified somewhat, by a prophecy saying that as long as the Mother Confessor lives, the keeper will fail.

You Can't Thwart Stage One - Averted, surprisingly enough, in the first season. While Rahl gets one or more of the boxes despite the heroes' best efforts in the beginning of the plot, they eventually succeed in stealing all three boxes and use them before Rahl can. After that, things go downhill for Rahl - though he certainly puts up one hell of a fight right up to the bitter end.

Armor Is Useless - Richard and Kahlan wear no armor whatsoever yet suffer hardly a scratch while fighting dozens of enemies. The D'harans, on the other hand, almost always show up in chainmail or plate armor and get mowed down by the dozens. D'harans dying to Kahlan's knives are particularly egregious since chainmail is designed specifically to withstand edged weapons.

Make Wrong What Once Went Right
 Legend of the Seeker / int_b8e23a8c
comment
Make Wrong What Once Went Right/Set Right What Once Went Wrong - Manages to be both at the same time. The first part of the Season Two finale takes place in what is, by all appearances, a much, much better world than the "real" one. As a result of the Spell of Undoing, Cara was never a Mord-Sith (and thus lived the peaceful life of a schoolteacher with two small children), and thus didn't arrive in time to interrupt Richard when he put together the boxes of Orden. As a result, the veil of the underworld was never torn, Orden and Confession tempered each other, Richard was marrying Kahlan, and Darken Rahl was now his trusted friend, brother, and advisor. Zedd, having Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory, is the only one who remembers how things were "supposed" to be...but comes to accept, at first, that this might be better. It's only once the Keeper, who also has Ripple-Effect-Proof Memory, throws things out of whack that he decides to hit the Reset Button again.

Never Split the Party - Meta version, by way of Pragmatic Adaptation: In the books, while Richard and Kahlan were nearly inseparable after the second book, they often went two or three books without seeing Zedd, who was off doing other plot-important things elsewhere, and it was rare to have all the main protagonists in one place for an extended period of time. In the TV series, though, they're never separated for more than a two-parter episode at a time.

Continuity Nod

comment
Continuity Nod: General Egramort's questions in "Walter" to determine if the lookalike is the real Darken Rahl are both references to Season One episodes. In Season 2 "Broken", Zedd uses the magical mirror he gained in Season 1 "Mirror" to disguise himself. In one episode, Richard is forced to fight a D'Haran captain whom he had befriended; one who had his family in a nearby village and is generally shown to be a sympathetic character. At one point, the Sword of Truth is shown to be glowing white, which in the books occurred when Richard fought someone whom he forgave despite being his enemy. Scenes which immediately followed made it unclear whether the glowing white was genuine or a trick of the sunlight. As a point of fact, in the books the sword glowed white when he used it toward someone he loved, not someone he forgave.

The Power of Love - In the season 2 finale it manages to keep Richard from being confessed by Kahlan, make Kahlan snap out of the Con Dar, andmakes a completely new stone of tears. The first bit is a nod to the end of the first book, and was in fact foreshadowed by Richard himself in "Eternity". And in the episode featuring Kieran, Viviene and Amfortas (a previous Seeker, Confessor and Wizard), Kieran's rage can simply be explained as the result of grief at her death being magnified by the Sword of Truth, his own love protecting him from Viviene. Unfortunately, he just wasn't able to focus in battle like Richard can.

Perfectly Arranged Marriage: An odd non-marriage variant. Annabelle was afraid that Flynn would stop liking her after she lost her confessor powers, but he ended up liking her anyway.

Selectively Lethal Weapon - The Dakras wielded by the Sisters of the Light and of the Dark. Their lethality is directly proportional to whom they hit: If it hits a Sister of the Dark, she's dead before she hits the ground. If it hits a main character, the thrower will have to release its magic to make the kill. In the latter case, the Dakra can be removed without any ill effects, even if it was previously embedded in the character's ribs.

Devil but No God - Unlike in the book series, the Creator does show up. ...Maybe. And like in The Salvation War, everyone who dies goes to Fire and Brimstone Hell. However, Darken Rahl implies at one point that it's only because the veil has been torn that everyone who dies goes there - in the normal course of things, only bad people go there, while good people go to some unspecified but presumably much nicer place.

Demoted to Extra - Adie is a prominent character in the books, who at varying points is even a love interest for Zedd. So far, she's shown up only in the pilot, and is probably trapped in Westland beyond the boundary.

You Can't Fight Fate
 Legend of the Seeker / int_cade6c21
comment
You Can't Fight Fate: Much as Richard goes on about not believing in Prophecy, every single one of them comes true. Well, for a given value of true... Here is the list of the prophecies that came true: Richard killed Rahl; Richard delivered the Stone of Tears to the Keeper; Kahlan's heart never stopped beating, so the Keeper lost; Leo was named Seeker; Darken Rahl became a tyrant. One prophecy did not come true, however. Shota stated that Richard would fail in his quest. He didn't. Well, there seems to be a difference between the prophecies that the Sisters get from the Creator, and the ones Shota gets. We don't always see what Shota sees, so we mainly have her interpretation of things to go by. Richard's quest is to stop Rahl. And Richard doesn't stop Rahl. Did Richard succeed in his quest? By the technicality, Rahl stopped himself. Shota also prophesised that Kahlan would betray Richard. The closest we get to a fulfillment of that one is Kahlan's tentative, and never confirmed, guess that her leaving Richard for an episode (which she did to keep the prophesy from coming true) was the "betrayal" in question. It was proven a couple of times that, although the prophecies that the Creator gives to the Sisters of the Light can't be averted, Shota's visions can. Hell, the first episode we're introduced to Shota is all about her trying to avert her own vision (and it does end up being averted completely).

Offing the Offspring
 Legend of the Seeker / int_ccda1026
comment
Offing the Offspring - As in the books, the Confessors kill male confessors at birth out of fear of them growing to abuse their powers. In the first season, Richard successfully convinces the Confessors to spare the life of a newborn male confessor. Then the season finale shows us a full-grown male confessor, and despite his parents' best efforts, he's just as bad as they'd feared. Also, after luring Cara into a trap with a threat to her (and his) son, Darken Rahl reveals that he had been killed at birth, just as she originally thought.

Color-Coded Characters - In several cases. D'Haran soldiers wear dark red & black, and the Sisters of the Dark wear brighter red. (Of course, Sisters of the Light do too, as Sisters of the Dark are rogues). Additionally, Kahlan wears white up until Denna appears in white, then she switches colors to a dark scheme.

Murder Is the Best Solution
 Legend of the Seeker / int_d4b3de15
comment
Murder Is the Best Solution - Over the course of Season 2, a couple characters express regret that they hadn't killed Darken Rahl, or allowed him to be killed, when he was a child. One of these people happens to be Zedd, who in the books has a brief inner monologue on the subject, before realizing he couldn't have wished for the death of a child, even one who would grow up to be Darken Rahl. Much the same feelings are expressed in the show.

Landmine Goes Click - One unfortunate Sister of the Dark finds this out in "Bound" and has just about enough time to realize it before she goes boom. Richard explains a moment later that these types of mines only go off when you step off them, which is what saves Nicci from the same fate. This also holds for many Real Life land mines.

Though this may be a 'practical' Good Costume Switch—Cara isn't really allowed to torture people, and her secondary weapon is seduction, so it does make life easier when she shows off a bit. (Not to mention that red leather is not the most comfortable of outfits.)

 Legend of the Seeker / int_e22c4035
comment
Shoot the Shaggy Dog: In the first season, Richard saves a male Confessor baby (it is believed that all the male Confessors are Always Chaotic Evil, and as such they are killed at birth), hoping that the baby can grow into a decent person. But we never learn whether his belief is right: in the second season the child is killed off-screen along with all the other Confessors. The son of Darken Rahl and Kahlan in the alternate reality of the season one finale indicates the belief was right.

Kill It with Fire
 Legend of the Seeker / int_efdc7e0d
comment
Kill It with Fire - Zedd loves torching things with Wizard's Fire, though he does have other tricks. Especially starting in season 2. Also, this is the only way to truly kill a baneling, torching its body so it can't rise from the dead yet again. You could also freeze it and then break it {which is how he killed another undead creature).

Distracted by the Sexy - At the beginning of "Elixir", Richard sees Kahlan bathing by a river and fails to notice his horses getting stolen less than 10 feet away from him. In "Mirror", Richard again gets distracted by "Kahlan" (a thief disguised by a magical mirror which gave her the appearance of Kahlan) when "Kahlan" takes her clothes off and swims in a lake with Richard.
