Real Influential Women Role Models (Real and Fictitious): Kahlan Amnell and Cara Mason

Kahlan Amnell and Cara Mason (Legend of the Seeker) Mother Confessor Kahlan (Bridget Regan) and former Mord’Sith Cara (Tabrett Bethell) both play female leads beside Richard Cipher (Craig Horner) and Zeddicus Zu’l Zorander (Bruce Spence) in the fantasy TV series based on book series The Sword of Truth by Terry Goodkind. Amidst their quest to save the world from certain evils, Kahlan and Cara (the latter of whom entered the series as a main character in Season 2 when she left the bad side for the good) act as warrior heroes while also using their women’s intuition to help the men out in certain situations rather than being the stereotypical secondary citizens of medieval times who stand idly by and watch their male counterparts fight in battles. Without Kahlan and her daggers, plus her confessing power that forces people to tell the truth, and Cara with her agiel (a magical device that causes unimaginable pain), it’s possible to say that Richard, the chosen one hero of the series, would never get as far as he did.
