Coriantor

The Book of Ether indicates that the prophet Ether “was a descendant of Coriantor”. Coriantor’s father, Moron, was dethroned by another and imprisoned for the remainder of his life. Coriantor lived out his days in captivity at a time when the people rejected the many prophets who came among them to warn them that “except they should repent the Lord God would execute judgment against them to their utter destruction; And that the Lord God would send or bring forth another people to possess the land, by his power, after the manner by which he brought their fathers”. Sometime after Ether was born, Coriantor died. Ether witnessed the utter extinction of the entire Jaredite nation, except for Coriantumr, the lone survivor of the endless battles that consumed the wicked civilization.
