Changes from the book series
Moiraine is an adaptation of the from the book series.
- Staff - In the first book The Eye of the World, Moiraine carries a staff. On December 2, 2020, showrunner Rafe Judkins answered a fan question on if Moiraine would have her staff, and Judkins confirmed that she would not. "We're approaching this as an adaptation of the entire series, not just each book individually, so hopefully Season One will feel more like the entire book series of Wheel of Time than it does like Eye of the World. With that in mind -- no Moiraine staff. Let chaos ensue, ha."
- Appearance - In the books, Moiraine has dark eyes, but in the show, Moiraine retains Rosamund Pike's blue eyes. However, Moiraine is still dark-haired in the show, while Rosamund Pike is a natural blonde. Moreover, Moiraine is described as being relatively short and petite, but Rosamund Pike is fairly tall for a woman.
