The earth link allows the Warden of Althain to encompass and understand a multiplicity of events on Athera and its linked worlds, from the movement of armies to the movement of a field mouse, without being overwhelmed.

Sethvir inherited the earth link (and the role as Warden of Althain) from the Paravians and spent many years in training, finally claiming the office in Third Age 5100.
