|If the Land in general is beautiful, and if individual creatures can mirror or incarnate entire regions with their own personal splendor, then how is Andelain the heart of the Land's glory? True, the Earthpower radiates from it greatly but the Blood of the Earth does the same thing except far more, on that level of description, so...
But what's really going on is that the different beautiful parts of the Land are actually all tied to specific emotions/sentiments/attitudes/the like. Glimmermere evokes the feeling of cleansing, the Ranyhyn legitimate authority, the Wraiths innocence, the forests sovereign wrath, and so on and on. Andelain, though, summons saudade, because it is at the heart of the Land, around broken Gravin and Kiril Threndor. Andelain "personifies" the love of the Land itself as if the Land in total is one individual living creature.
