In the land of Earthsea, a young wizard named Ged has visions about a girl and doors opening. Meanwhile, King Tygath wants to rule the land and release the Nameless Ones, demons from whom he hopes to learn the secret of immortality. He sends men to attack Ged’s village, in search of the wizard of prophesy (Ged). Ged learns his first spell from an elderly woman. When the invasion comes, Ged uses a mist spell and lures the invaders over a cliff, saving the village. However, Ged also falls off the cliff.
Tygath tries to convince High Priestess Thar to release the Nameless Ones, but she refuses. She is poisoned by Rosa, her attendant who has been tricked by the king’s lover, Kossil, every time she has tea.
A magus named Ogion arrives at Ged’s village and revives Ged. He tells Ged his true name and takes him for training, but Ged is too impatient; he is sent to the magic school on Roke. There he meets the bully, Jasper, and befriends a student named Vetch. Ged shapeshifts into a hawk to show off. Jasper then challenges him to raise a spirit from the dead, leading him to accidentally release a Nameless One. The demon attacks Ged before being driven away by the Archmagus, who tells him that this Nameless One will hunt Ged down and try to possess him, using Ged’s power for further destruction.

This article is about the former Western Australian state electorate. For the Australian federal electorate, see Division of Swan.
For the Legislative Council constituency (1870 to 1890), see Electoral district of Swan (Legislative Council).
Swan was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Western Australia from 1890 to 1950 and again from 1962 to 1983.
The district was located in the Swan Valley, to the east of Perth. The district was one of the original 30 seats contested at the 1890 election. It was abolished ahead of the 1950 election, at which point incumbent member Gerald Wild of the Liberal Party became the member for the new seat of Dale. Revived for the 1962 election, it was won by John Brady of the Labor Party, hitherto the member for Guildford-Midland. Swan was again abolished at the 1983 election, whence incumbent member Gordon Hill of the Labor Party won the new seat of Helena.
