- “This man was bent seriously out of straight”
- ―Richard Rahl[src]
Joseph Ander, also called The Mountain, was the wizard for whom Anderith was named. Ander once locked away the chimes, keeping them from invading the world of life, by creating his own magic, in a sense, and doing things that made sense to none but him. After Kahlan released the chimes from Ander's magic, Richard was forced to understand how Ander created his own magic. Richard called the chimes and Joseph Ander, who had avoided death by living in a world he created himself. Richard gave the chimes the choice of taking his soul or Ander's soul and Ander ceased living in any world.
