The Light is the force of good in the world, considered to be "from the Creator," and the antithesis of the Dark One's powers. Randland's population is unusually polarized, with very few people not feeling a strong allegiance to either the Shadow or the Light. The Light is less manifest in the world in concrete terms than the Shadow is, as the Creator has taken a somewhat hands-off approach to his/her/its creation. This is contrasted with the Dark One, who takes an active role in the world, with a voice and a quasi-physical (if artificially restrained) presence.
