    Chapter 1: The Hook

  1. al'Lan Mandragoran, NS, p. 11—The uncrowned king of Malkier, and formerly Warder to Moiraine. He is quite tall, and does not get very emotional—in fact, he has emotional walls all around him that he has been building for years. His country, Malkier, was overrun by Trollocs shortly after he was born, and is now corrupted by the Great Blight. Lan, among the last of his people, then proceeded to fight a one-man war against the Shadow by killing Shadowspawn in the Blight. He fought Aiel during the Aiel War, and achieved Blademaster status. He was eventually bonded by Moiraine, which ended his lonely fight (or at least changed its style). When Lan and Moiraine brought Rand, Mat, Perrin, Egwene, and Nynaeve out of their home in the Two Rivers, he found that there was something which could throw his guard down, but he was the last to notice it: affection for Nynaeve. As Moiraine put it, Nynaeve was able to plant vines in Lan's emotional walls and break them down without him even knowing they were there. The two of them are now married. According to the terms of their vows as taken before the Sea Folk, one of them must obey in public while the other obeys in private; for obvious reasons, Nynaeve is the one who commands in public. Upon Moiraine's death, Lan's bond was immediately transferred to Myrelle until Nynaeve was ready to have his bond transferred to her. Myrelle tried to keep Lan's status secret, but she was given away when she tried to buy one of Lan's favorite foods, coin peppers, too far south (they are very popular in Shienar, and were in Malkier before it fell to the Blight, but do not grow well in southern climates). Upon learning of where Lan was, Egwene sent him to Ebou Dar to serve as a Warder for Nynaeve. He traveled with his wife and the group of Aes Sedai she accompanied until he started to feel longing for his homeland. Nynaeve understood that he needed to finish his fight in the Blight, but she vowed to increase his chance of survival by dropping him off at World's End in Saldaea and alerting every surviving Malkieri she could find that Lan was marching for Tarwin's Gap. According to the Wise Ones, Aan'allein (as the Aiel call him) will die the day he learns that Nynaeve is dead. He is one of the best, if not the best, warriors, swordsmen, and Warders in the world. Lan was determined to avoid all signs of civilization in the Borderlands, intending to ride to Tarwin's Gap himself. Nynaeve had other plans, however; she visited dozens of locations throughout the Borderlands and alerted any Malkieri she could find of Lan's mission. He intended to turn as many of them away as he could, but he had little choice in the matter—even Kaisel, Prince of Kandor, has joined his fight. He eventually ended up with a small army, and is now one of the battle lords holding Tarwin's Gap against the Trolloc hordes in the Last Battle. See also Aan'allein; al'Meara, Nynaeve; Andra; Berengari, Myrelle; Damodred, Moiraine; Mandragoran, Akir; Mandragoran, Breyan; Mandragoran, Isam; Mandragoran, Lain; ti Mandragoran, Leanna.
  2. Dark One, NS, p. 12—Name, used in every land, for Shai'tan, because using his real name causes bad luck (at best) to anyone who speaks it. See Shai'tan.
  3. Basram, NS, p. 12—Short, stocky, coppery-skinned Domani soldier. Lan finds him asleep at his post during his rounds.
  4. Jaim, NS, p. 13—Gray-bearded soldier. Lan found him asleep at his post, still standing up, eyes open. He denied being asleep, but Lan knew—other seasoned veterans knew the trick of sleeping with their eyes open, too.
  5. Bukama Marenellin, NS, p. 14—Lan's teacher, one of the original 20 men charged with the task of carrying the infant prince of Malkier to safety when the nation was overrun; he was the only one still alive at the time Lan met Moiraine. Bluff and broad, he was taller than most men, almost as tall as Lan. His hair was solid gray, which he wore cut to the shoulder according to Malkieri tradition, held back by the hadori, a thin braided leather cord. He had blue eyes. Lan thinks he would cry at the sight of the Malkieri caravan—Bukama thought the Malkieri to be gone as a people: broken, shattered, and absorbed into other nations.
  6. Shai'tan, NS, p. 15—The Dark One, source of all evil, complete antithesis of The Creator in every way. At the moment of Creation, Shai'tan was imprisoned by the Creator at Shayol Ghul. This prison kept him from touching the world until it was bored into by Aes Sedai during the Age of Legends. This hole, called the Bore, allowed the Dark One to once again touch the world, causing new outbreaks of war, treachery, violence, and crime. The attempt to free the Dark One completely resulted in the War of the Shadow (called the War of Power by some, especially those on the Shadow's side), during which a number of important leaders forsook the Light and gave their lives to the Dark One; these people are known today as the Forsaken, and were 13 of the most powerful Aes Sedai of the Age of Legends. The War of the Shadow did not end until Lews Therin Telamon, the Dragon, and his Hundred Companions Traveled to Shayol Ghul and re-sealed the Dark One back into his prison, trapping the Forsaken with him. At the moment of sealing, Shai'tan lashed out at those sealing the prison, driving them insane and tainting saidin itself, the male half of the True Source, dooming all male Aes Sedai to madness as well and starting the Time of Madness. These seals are weakening now, enough that the Forsaken have escaped and the Dark One is once again able to exert influence on the world. These seals were scattered throughout the world by Aes Sedai during the Breaking of the World. In order of when they were discovered, they were found: 1) At the Eye of the World (broken when it was found); 2) in the hands of Bayle Domon, later pilfered by High Lord Turak of the Seanchan (broken at the battle of Falme), 3) On Seanchan, part of High Lord Turak's collection (broken at the battle at Falme); 4) In the Great Hold at the Stone of Tear (still intact); 5) In the Panarch's Palace in Tanchico (broken enroute to Salidar); 6) One in Rhuidean (still intact), and 7) Found by Mazrim Taim on a small farm in Saldaea (still intact). Despite being made of cuendillar, the three that remain unbroken can be cut with a knife and would break by a fall from a table. According to the Forsaken, the Dark One is capable of destroying anything, just as the Creator is capable of creating anything—similarly, anything that the One Power can do, the True Power can undo. The Dark One is also referred to by other euphemisms, including Sightblinder, Lord of the Grave, Father of Lies, Grassburner, Leafblighter, Heartfang, Heartsbane, Soulsbane, Lord of the Twilight, Father of Storms, Bringer of Gales, Shepherd of the Night, Soulblinder, Lighteater, and (among Darkfriends) the Great Lord of the Dark. See also Ba'alzamon; Creator, The; Dragon, The; Haran, Shaidar; Ishamael; Moridin; Nae'blis.
  7. The Creator, NS, p. 15—Maker of the Universe, people, places, things, the True Source, everything in existence. An alternate name would be God. After He created the world, the Creator made a prison for Shai'tan, the Dark One, His complete opposite in every way, to keep him from influencing the world. The Creator is bent on non-interference—He will not directly influence events in the world, instead using a “Chosen One” or simply tugging at the Pattern of the Age in hopes that what He wants to occur will occur, instead of just making it happen. The Forsaken and most Darkfriends consider Him to be inferior to the Dark One, despite the fact that He imprisoned the Dark One. See also Dragon, The; Dragon Reborn; Shai'tan.
  8. Artur Hawkwing, NS, p. 15—Hero of Legend who conquered much of the known world about a thousand years ago. He was born in Shandalle, in what is now Cairhien. During and after his conquest of the known world, he became known as Artur Hawkwing. He was perhaps the most strongly ta'veren man in history besides Lews Therin Telamon and Rand al'Thor. His armies put down those of Guaire Amalasan, a false Dragon, and he even sent troops across the Aryth Ocean under his son, Luthair Paendrag Mondwhin, in hopes of conquering new lands there. All contact with these armies ended with Hawkwing's death, which set off the War of the Hundred Years. The descendants of the armies under Luthair have now returned to reclaim the lands of Hawkwing's empire in the Old World—they now call themselves the Seanchan. According to Mat's memories, he was difficult to get along with even before the War of the Hundred Years began. His sign was a golden hawk in flight. When the Horn of Valere was blown, Hawkwing himself led the Heroes. See Paendrag Tanreall, Artur. See also Hawkwing, Artur; Paendrag Mondwhin, Luthair.
  9. Rakim, NS, p. 17—Saldaean soldier. He joined Nazar and Andere in their journey to find Lan and march to Malkier. He originally soldiered under Lan in the Aiel War. See also Andere; Nazar.
  10. Lord Emares, NS, p. 17—General in the forces against the Aiel from Tear. He discovered a group of Aiel that followed to the east. He sent a message to Lan to the effect that he intended to serve as the hammer that crushed the Aiel into Lan's troops, who would serve as the anvil.
  11. Sun Lance, NS, p. 19—Bukama's yellow roan gelding. See Marenellin, Bukama.
  12. Caniedrin, NS, p. 19—Beardless young man among Lan's troops. The young Kandori is an efficient, experienced soldier, and an archer of rare skill. An almost cheerful killer, he often laughs while he fights.
  13. Cat Dancer, NS, p. 19—Lan's bay stallion. He is still being trained as a warhorse. See also Mandragoran, Lan.
  14. Aan'allein, NS, p. 24—Aiel name for Lan. It means “One Man,” “The Man Alone,” or “Man Who is an Entire People” in the Old Tongue. Lan's story is well-known and well-respected among the Aiel. The Man Alone is no longer alone. See Mandragoran, Lan. See also Mandragoran, Lan.

    Chapter 2: A Wish Fulfilled

    Wheel of Time icon
  15. Amyrlin Seat, NS, p. 26—The leader of the Aes Sedai, their equivalent of a King or Queen. She in theory holds supreme power amongst the sisters, and leads the Hall of the Tower at its meetings. Kings and queens of nations strong and weak will come if summoned by the Amyrlin, even if they spend their entire trip figuring out how they will put a knife in her back while there. The Seat is traditionally held by a woman strong both in the Power and in her character. The vote to choose an Amyrlin must be unanimous, as must the vote to depose one. Once chosen, the Amyrlin is said to be “of all Ajahs and none“—all previous affiliations with Ajah are ignored (at least in theory). The Ajahs have gotten fairly equal numbers of Amyrlins raised from their Ajah, with two exceptions. No Amyrlin had been raised from the Red Ajah since Bonwhin Meraighdin, who was deposed and stilled for nearly breaking the Tower in Artur Hawkwing's day, until Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan was raised Amyrlin in Tar Valon after a coup deposed Siuan Sanche; the Blue Ajah has had more than the average number of Amyrlins from its Ajah—four of the last the last five Amyrlins (before Elaida) were raised from the Blue Ajah. These two exceptions to the mean number of Amyrlins from one's Ajah have only added to the friction between the Blue and Red Ajahs over the years. The Amyrlin has a secretary of sorts, the Keeper of the Chronicles, who is traditionally chosen from the same Ajah that the Amyrlin was raised from. The Amyrlin Seat was held by Siuan Sanche, raised from the Blue Ajah, until she was deposed for her involvement with events surrounding the Dragon Reborn. Her successor was the leader of the coup, Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan, raised from the Red Ajah. Siuan's deposition divided the Tower, and the faction opposing Elaida raised a new Amyrlin who could not be accused of choosing sides on the fateful day Siuan was deposed: Egwene al'Vere, who was outside the Tower and not even a full sister from the time Siuan was deposed to the time Egwene was Raised. Other sisters outside the Tower, in many cases, did not reveal their loyalties to either Egwene or Elaida. Egwene was captured by forces loyal to Elaida during a partially successful attempt to turn the harbor chains to cuendillar; Elaida re-enlisted her as a Novice, and treated her as a disobedient, stubborn child. Egwene remained defiant to the very last, trying to garner support from within. Elaida stubbornly refused to acknowledge Egwene's warnings of a Seanchan attack; that very attack, when it occurred, claimed Elaida herself as a prisoner of the Seanchan. After two tense days, filled with revelations of the Black Ajah, the aftermath of the Seanchan attack, and a near-invasion by Egwene's army, the Hall Selected a new Amyrlin: Egwene al'Vere, raised from the Accepted (no Ajah). See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; al'Vere, Egwene; Anghara; Arandaille, Balladare; Aryman, Deane; Bagand, Sereille; Chunla, Shein; Copan, Myriam; Kerenmosa, Rashima; Kishar, Gerra; Latar, Serenia; Maconar, Caraighan; Meraighdin, Bonwhin; Noregovna, Edarna; Ospenya, Tamra; Sanche, Siuan; Sorenthaine, Cemaile; Tetsuan; Vayu, Sierin.
  16. Moiraine Damodred, NS, p. 26—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. Born of a noble House in Cairhien, she is Taringail Damodred's youngest half-sister, and King Laman's niece. She is considered short among her people, and the Cairhienin are already a short people. When it was discovered that she had the ability to channel inborn, Moiraine went to Tar Valon to become an Aes Sedai. Just before being raised to the shawl, she and her friend Siuan Sanche witnessed Gitara Moroso's Foretelling of the Rebirth of the Dragon. Moiraine and Siuan walked away from each other and did not speak to each other again (at least in public), but both held secret communication with each other and dedicated their lives to finding and guiding the Dragon Reborn. Moiraine found the young man she sought on Winternight in Emond's Field, a young man named Rand al'Thor, along with two more ta'veren, Mat Cauthon and Perrin Aybara, and two women with the spark of the Power inborn, Egwene al'Vere and Nynaeve al'Meara. When Moiraine was shortly raised to the shawl, she met al'Lan Mandragoran, the uncrowned King of Malkier, who was fighting alone against the Shadow in the Borderlands; she eventually asked Lan to become her Warder, and he accepted. She was very strong in the Power, stronger than almost all living Aes Sedai before Egwene and Nynaeve came to the Tower. In the Stone of Tear, Moiraine confronted and killed the Forsaken Be'lal with balefire, just before he would have killed Rand. Later, after having an inkling of the future events from the testing ter'angreal for the Wise Ones, Moiraine managed to push the Forsaken Lanfear through the twisted doorway ter'angreal into the land of the Eelfinn, trapping both her and Lanfear there. Moiraine was the subject of the only viewing Min had ever had that, so Min thought, could not come true. Min assumed it could not come true, as she thought Moiraine was dead, though of course she was not. According to a letter Moiraine wrote to Thom Merrilin the day before her death, she lived on in the land of the Finn, but her bond with Lan was severed. The same letter convinced Mat to help Thom rescue her, though her vision in the ter'angreal apparently indicated disaster would result unless Mat asked to see the letter before Thom showed it to him. Other Aes Sedai consider Moiraine a legend, not only for discovering the Dragon Reborn but for killing or trapping two of the Forsaken as well as finding a future Amyrlin Seat. Despite her efforts, and for the most part, success, Cadsuane still thinks she “bungled” things with Rand. Moiraine has been severely weakened in her strength in the One Power—the Eelfinn drained her strength from her, savoring in the agony they caused by doing so. After being rescued, she married Thom Merrilin, who was also involved in her rescue.

  17. Siuan Sanche, NS, p. 26—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah with shoulder-length hair. Born in Tear to a fisherman, she was sent to the White Tower on the first boat to leave after she discovered she had the ability to channel inborn, according to Tairen law. As a novice, she was good friends with Moiraine Damodred, and was present at Gitara Moroso's Foretelling of the Rebirth of the Dragon. After being raised to the shawl, she joined the Blue Ajah to dedicate her life to finding and guiding the Dragon Reborn, and eventually came to lead the Blues' network of eyes-and-ears (i.e., spies) before being raised to the Amyrlin Seat. She was only thirty years old when raised to the Amyrlin Seat, making her the youngest Amyrlin to that point. She was also one of the strongest Amyrlins in recent history, and one of the most feared among the rulers of nations. Her blue-eyed stare was feared by all. When her twenty-year connection to the Dragon Reborn was discovered, she and her Keeper of the Chronicles, Leane Sharif, were deposed and stilled by a group of sisters loyal to Elaida a'Roihan. Siuan and Leane escaped with Min's help and found the rebel Aes Sedai in Salidar. Siuan hoped to regain some of her previous standing in the new Tower that separated from Elaida—her knowledge of the Blue Ajah spy network is hard to match, and she knows much that she thought would be of use. In one of her viewings, Min saw that Siuan would have to remain close to Gareth Bryne—if she did not, both of them would die. Siuan did not initially know what she meant, but now realizes that she is growing to love the gray-haired man who leads the rebel army. She later realized that the viewing was related to the attack on the Tower by the Seanchan. Siuan had a Warder named Alric, but he was murdered by Elaida when Siuan was deposed. After coming to Salidar, Nynaeve discovered how to restore Siuan's ability to channel, at least partially. This resurrected a part of her bond with Alric, but did not bring back her former strength, or her binding by the Oath Rod. She could lie as well as any child, at least until she re-swore the Three Oaths shortly before the Tower was reunited. She served as an advisor of sorts to the new Amyrlin in Salidar, Egwene al'Vere, but though she put on a façade of hating the work, she was actually one of Egwene's foremost agents. The fact that she was Aes Sedai, not to mention one who was stilled and Healed again, made other sisters tend to be oblivious to that fact. She was pushed very hard by Elaida as a novice. While Egwene was being held prisoner in the Tower, Siuan was charged with keeping the factions among the rebels—headed by Romanda Cassin and Lelaine Akashi, respectively—from usurping the rebellion and placing themselves on the Amyrlin Seat. When the Seanchan attacked, Siuan decided she had had enough of Egwene's stubborn insistance not to rescue her. She easily convinced Gawyn to come with her, and eventually convinced Gareth Bryne to come with as well, on two conditions: she bond Bryne as her Warder, which she did immediately, and that she marry him. The second condition has since been met as well. Bryne saved her life when a Seanchan assassin creeped up behind her while she was Healing Bryne's troops; he thrust his sword into the apparition's chest area, knowing that he would die if the blow did not land, and saved her life. She then saved his life by Healing him of the poison the assassin injected right before dying himself, thus satisfying Min's viewing, it seems. Siuan has an unusual Talent: she can see ta'veren. She said Rand “blazed like a torch” the first time she saw him, in reference to the strength of his ta'veren abilities. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; al'Vere, Egwene; Alric; Amyrlin Seat; Bryne, Gareth; Damodred, Moiraine; Herimon, Seaine; Mara; Moroso, Gitara; Sharif, Leane.
  18. Azil Mareed, NS, p. 27—High Captain of the Tower Guard. His reports are available only to Aes Sedai.
  19. Tamra Ospenya, NS, p. 28—Amyrlin Seat during the Aiel War, about twenty years ago. She was raised from the Blue Ajah, and succeeded by Sierin Vayu. She was put to the Question by Jarna Malari, then the head of the Black Ajah, with assistance from Chesmal Emry, who made it appear that she died in her sleep. Her Keeper of the Chronicles was Gitara Moroso; she was one of only three people present at Gitara's Foretelling of the Rebirth of the Dragon. The identities of those three people may be the information that Jarna was trying to extract from her; it may also be the reason Ishamael killed Jarna for killing Tamra. See also Amyrlin Seat; Casban, Galina; Damodred, Moiraine; Emry, Chesmal; Malari, Jarna; Moroso, Gitara; Sanche, Siuan; Vayu, Sierin.
  20. Gitara Moroso, NS, p. 28—Keeper of the Chronicles from about twenty-six years ago until her death about twenty years ago. Before she was Keeper, she was counselor to Queen Mordrellen of Andor, although she spent more time with her children. When she had the Foretelling, it was strong. One of her Foretellings was to tell Tigraine that she must become a Maiden of the Spear, or dire consequences would result; as it turned out, Tigraine needed to become Shaiel, the Maiden of the Spear who bore a son by Janduin that grew up to be Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn. Another concerned Tigraine's brother Luc; she told him his fame, or his fate, lay in the Blight; he went into the Blight, and was never seen again. Another extremely significant Foretelling occured at the moment of her own death: in front of the Amyrlin Seat and two Accepted named Moiraine Damodred and Siuan Sanche, she felt the birth of the Dragon Reborn. She slumped over into Moiraine's arms, dead, after the words were out of her mouth. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; Damodred, Moiraine; Damodred, Tigraine; Dragon Reborn; Keeper of the Chronicles; Mantear, Luc; Mantear, Mordrellen; Ospenya, Tamra; Sanche, Siuan; Shaiel; Slayer.
  21. Keeper of the Chronicles, NS, p. 28—Essentially the secretary to the Amyrlin Seat. The Keeper is traditionally chosen from the same Ajah the Amyrlin was raised from, and wears a stole of the color of her Ajah instead of the striped stole of the Amyrlin. The post was held by Leane Sharif of the Blue Ajah until a coup deposed Siuan Sanche and stilled both Siuan and Leane. Her successor was Alviarin Freidhen of the White Ajah, despite the fact that Siuan's successor was from the Red. The Keeper for the Aes Sedai who fled the Tower when Elaida was raised Amyrlin named a Keeper of the Chronicles of their own, Sheriam Bayanar of the Blue Ajah. In theory, the Keeper of the Chronicles serves the Amyrlin and speaks for the Amyrlin; she is all but separate from her Ajah, although less so than the Amyrlin Seat herself. However, both Keepers during the division of the Tower tried to expand their powers over the Amyrlin they served, although for vastly different reasons—Alviarin essentially tried to weaken Elaida and have herself or another Black sister raised in her place after Elaida was deposed; Sheriam tried to overstep Egwene because she had a hard time thinking of Egwene being anything more than the frightened novice that came to her study not so long ago, and her orders from the Shadow were to support Egwene, as it was assumed she would be weak and easy to control. Alviarin was later deposed and replaced by Tarna Feir of the Red Ajah. Sheriam was similarly deposed when she was exposed as being of the Black Ajah by Verin. When Elaida was captured by the Seanchan and Egwene raised in her place, she chose Silviana Brehon of the Red Ajah to be her Keeper. See also Amyrlin Seat; Bagand, Sereille; Basaheen, Duhara; Bayanar, Sheriam; Brehon, Silviana; Feir, Tarna; Freidhen, Alviarin; Moroso, Gitara; Najaf, Aeldra; Nyram, Beldeine; Sharif, Leane.
  22. Temaile Kinderode, NS, p. 29—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the Gray. A fragile woman from Cairhien with very big, blue eyes and a face like a fox. She always spread pain evenly in her mediating. She left the Tower with Liandrin with the first group of sisters to publicly admit themselves Black Ajah. Yukiri does not like her much. She is currently held prisoner in the dungeons of the Royal Palace in Caemlyn. She escaped with Darkfriend help and attacked Elayne when Elayne attempted to trick Chesmal into revealing the Shadow's plans.
  23. Brendas, NS, p. 29—Aes Sedai of the White Ajah. She has cool eyes. She never grilled Nynaeve about Rand—she was also someone Siuan trusted. She helped lure the Black Ajah and Mesaana into attacking.
  24. Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan, NS, p. 32—Aes Sedai formerly of the Red Ajah, now raised to the Amyrlin Seat in Tar Valon. She was born the youngest daughter of a minor House in the north of Murandy. She occasionally has the Foretelling, and as a result of a Foretelling she had concerning the importance of the Royal Family of Andor in Tarmon Gaidon, she served as advisor to Queen Morgase of Andor for her entire reign. She later led the coup that deposed Siuan Sanche and placed herself on the Amyrlin Seat in Siuan's place. She distrusts anyone not of the Red Ajah (as most Reds do), and does not think she will ever be able to trust any member of the Blue Ajah again. Her Keeper of the Chronicles was Alviarin Freidhen of the White Ajah—she was all but forced to choose Alviarin due to her role in the deposition of Siuan. If she had chosen a Keeper from her Ajah, she most likely would not have won the support of the White Ajah, and then she would have been stilled and exiled from the Tower instead of Siuan. She eventually removed Alviarin and raised Tarna Feir in her place after Alviarin vanished for some months. Her Foretelling about the importance of Andor's royal family during the Last Battle occurred around the time the Succession was going on, so she immediately attached herself to Morgase as soon as it became clear that she would be the one to take the Lion Throne. Another of her Foretellings was to predict that Rand al'Thor would shake the world on its very foundations—she constantly kicks herself for not doing something about him when he was right in front of her, little more than a farmboy at the time. Her most recent Foretelling was that “the White Tower would be whole again, except for remnants cast out and scorned, whole and stronger than ever. Rand al'Thor will face the Amyrlin Seat and know her anger. The Black Tower will be rent in blood and fire, and sisters will walk its grounds.” The Foretelling about Rand is obviously deadly accurate. However, the one about the Royal Family occurred at an inopportune time; at the time of Elaida's Foretelling, the Royal Family was not certain. It may have meant Morgase, Gawyn, Galad, and Elayne (they have all had a large role to play in the recent past), but it is also possible it could have meant the old Royal Family, that of Tigraine, Taringail, Galad, and later Elayne and Gawyn as well. After all, Morgase is just Morgase, but Tigraine is the mother of the Dragon Reborn. Her most recent Foretelling was of course be fulfilled, but not necessarily how she had interpreted it; she did not realize that the Amyrlin Seat in the Foretelling might not be herself, that the remnants cast out might be those loyal to her, and that the destruction of the Black Tower might have nothing to do with her. Elaida is quite strong in the One Power; only Siuan (before she was stilled and Healed), Moiraine (before being drained by the Eelfinn), Egwene, Elayne, Nynaeve, and a few others could match her strength. Elaida has always sought positions of power; she chose to follow Morgase to have a better chance at guiding the forces in the Last Battle, and tried to capture Rand al'Thor in an effort to gain similar control. The only sisters that supported her were those that were actually Black Ajah and those that would follow any Amyrlin legally raised, as Elaida was (although just barely; all laws used to raise her were stretched almost to their breaking point, and some believe they actually did shatter). Elaida started to build a palace for herself atop the Warders' old practice yard. The building was to be about as tall as the White Tower. She had no plans to be merciful to those who rebelled against her when she deposed Siuan—her terms were that the Blue Ajah no longer existed, and that any sister who followed Egwene must serve penance under her personal guidance before being readmitted to the Tower. Elaida replaced Alviarin as Keeper with a sister of the Red Ajah, Tarna Feir, and she had suspicions that Alviarin was trying to commit treason against the Tower. She ordered Seaine Herimon to “follow the trail of treason” as far as it went, even to the Keeper herself. Seaine interpreted this as a charge to capture members of the Black Ajah, leading to a grave situation for Seaine, as she had uncovered several Black sisters and no longer felt she could trust Elaida. Elaida continually ignored Egwene's warnings about a Seanchan attack; when the attack came, Elaida was woefully unprepared, and a significant fraction of the Tower was captured and made damane, including herself. She is currently held captive as a damane named Suffa. She knows the weave for Traveling, and either she shared this knowledge (perhaps under duress) with the Seanchan or they discovered it by observing other Aes Sedai. See also al'Vere, Egwene; Amyrlin Seat; Brehon, Silviana; Damodred, Moiraine; Feir, Tarna; Freidhen, Alviarin; Gazal, Toveine; Sanche, Siuan; Suffa; Trakand, Morgase.
  25. Elin Warrel, NS, p. 33—Newly-raised Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah.
  26. Merean Redhill, NS, p. 34—Plump, motherly Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah, and Mistress of Novices under Tamra Ospenya. She has a plump chin, and more gray in her hair than not. She is fairly tall—Moiraine's head comes up to her chin. She is very strong in the One Power, and has a way of discovering that which people wish to keep hidden. She had been Aes Sedai for over 100 years by the time Moiraine's great-grandmother was born. She has no Warder. See Mistress of Novices.
  27. Mistress of Novices, NS, p. 35–36—The Aes Sedai who is in charge of training novices and Accepted in the White Tower. The post was held by Sheriam Bayanar of the Blue Ajah until a coup that deposed Siuan Sanche chased her out of the Tower. The post was then held by Silviana Brehon in Tar Valon and Tiana Noselle among the Aes Sedai who fled to Salidar and later held the city of Tar Valon under siege. Another Mistress of Novices of the past was Seraille Bagand, who later became the Amyrlin Seat. After the Tower was reunited and Silviana became Keeper of the Chronicles, Egwene appointed Rosil, of the Yellow Ajah, as the new Mistress of Novices. See also Amira; Bagand, Sereille; Bayanar, Sheriam; Brehon, Silviana; Noselle, Tiana; Redhill, Merean; Rosil.
  28. The Dragon, NS, p. 36—Name by which Lews Therin Telamon was known by during the War of the Shadow. His Rebirth, the Dragon Reborn, is alive and fulfilling all of the Prophecies set to signal his return. He prepares for Tarmon Gaidon, the Last Battle. See also al'Thor, Rand; Chosen One; Dragon Reborn; Kinslayer; Lord of the Morning; Promised One; Telamon, Lews Therin.

  29. Meilyn Arganya, NS, p. 40—Aes Sedai of the White Ajah who gives private classes to Moiraine, though Moiraine fears she will miss those classes if the sisters do not return from the battle soon. She has silver-gray hair and a thrusting chin. She is one of the most respected women in the Tower; it is said that no one has a bad word for her. She has a smooth, emotionless face and startling blue eyes. She is one of the only Whites to have a Warder. She has worn the shawl for over three hundred years, and is the strongest Aes Sedai alive, except for Cadsuane. See also Andro.
  30. Larelle Tarsi, NS, p. 40—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah with long hair and coppery skin. She instructed Moiraine as a novice; she always had a way of asking the last question you wanted to hear. She is quite strong in the One Power, as strong as Merean, and has no Warder.
  31. Dragon Reborn, NS, p. 43—According to the Karaethon Cycle, the Prophecies of the Dragon, the man who is the Rebirth of Lews Therin Telamon, the man known as the Dragon during the War of the Shadow. Over the years, many men have claimed to be the Dragon Reborn, even men who could not channel. The true Dragon has been Reborn in a young man named Rand al'Thor, a shepherd from Emond's Field. He, and the world, now face Tarmon Gaidon. See also Ablar, Logain; al'Thor, Rand; Amalasan, Guaire; Bao the Wyld; Car'a'carn; Chosen One; Coramoor; Darksbane, Raolin; Davian; Dragon, The; He Who Comes With the Dawn; Promised One; Rogad, Gorin; Stonebow, Yurian; Taim, Mazrim; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  32. Akarrin, NS, p. 45—Slim Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She was convinced that Aviendha would be in novice white before long. She led the party of sisters that Traveled to the area near Shadar Logoth where Rand cleansed saidin. She is good at reading residues.
  33. Myrelle Berengari, NS, p. 50—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah with an elliptical face and olive skin. She is olive-skinned and beautiful, with long black hair and rounded curves. She is young (she has worn the shawl for about fifteen years) and known for her temper. She is now the Captain-General of the Green Ajah of the Tower-in-exile. She has five Warders named Nuhel, Croi, Avar, Lan (Moiraine's old Warder), and Llyw (Kairen's old Warder). She treats all of them as husbands in defiance of all law and custom, inside the Tower and out. She fled the White Tower when Siuan was deposed, along with most of her Ajah. She was one of the six sisters who held much of the power in Salidar despite not being part of the Hall of the Tower. She received Lan's bond after Moiraine's death, bringing her Warder count to four, at least until Nynaeve is ready to have him as a Warder, and later saved Kairen's Llyw as well. She seems to be the resident expert on saving Warders; four of her five (Nuhel, Avar, Lan, and Llyw) were previously bonded to other sisters. She claims this is because she hates watching Warders die once their Aes Sedai is dead. Nynaeve's last task before being raised “officially&rdrquo; was to demand that Myrelle pass Lan's bond to her. She reluctantly did so, after being threatened. See also Damodred, Moiraine; Dromand, Nuhel; Hachami, Avar; Llyw; Makin, Croi; Mandragoran, Lan.
  34. Tarna Feir, NS, p. 53—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah, later Keeper of the Chronicles in the White Tower under Elaida. Elaida had sent her to Salidar to communicate with the Aes Sedai there and report about their camp and their numbers. She has long, pale, yellow hair, a strong jaw, and blue eyes that could freeze the Sun. She was a wilder, and had her block beaten out of her by Galina Casban; she and Galina were pillow friends as novices and/or Accepted, but Tarna rebuffed her advances once she gained the shawl. She is as jumpy as a novice, but has a cold manner. She came to Pevara with a suggestion that Red sisters bond Asha'man as Warders. They later went to the Black Tower to seek out Warders among the Dedicated. She shared a tent with Pevara in the Black Tower. Editor's Note: Tarna said at one point that Galina “knew [her] Ajah long before [she] did, and took a personal interest in [her].” I once thought it was the Black (not Red) Ajah that Galina knew she would choose. It would have fit with the idea of most Aes Sedai in the Tower being Black. However, it has since been revealed that Galina's interest in Tarna was more personal. See also Casban, Galina; Keeper of the Chronicles.
  35. Aledrin, NS, p. 56—Sitter for the White Ajah in the new Hall. She has dark, golden hair and big, pale brown eyes. She grew up in Tarabon. She is taller than most men, and plump. She was part of the Tower's “embassy” to the Black Tower.
  36. Zemaille, NS, p. 56—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah, and one of the Tower librarians. She has a dark face, and is tall and very lean. She is fairly weak in the One Power. She is one of the few Sea Folk sisters in the Tower.
  37. Aisling Noon, NS, p. 57—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She served as advisor to King Easar of Shienar until she disappeared when news of Elaida's rise to power arrived. She has fierce eyes, and is fond of Borderland oaths that make Lan wince. She has bonded one of the Dedicated, Arel Malevin, as a Warder. See also Malevin, Arel; Togita, Easar.
  38. Verin Mathwin, NS, p. 57—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah who accompanied Egwene, Elayne, and Nynaeve back from Falme to Tar Valon. Her Warder is named Tomas. She is more interested in current events than the average Brown; most of them could not care less what happened now, only what happened years ago. She gave Egwene the twisted stone ring ter'angreal to assist her in Dreaming, and also once told Morgase that there was really no need to keep her in the Tower until she learned to control her ability when she was a novice, since she would never be able to do much with it anyway. When Verin went to the Two Rivers with Alanna, they helped to fight the Trollocs that attacked, and when they left they brought a half-dozen young women with them who could channel, including Mat's sister Bode. When she and Alanna reached Caemlyn, they found that the Tower had been broken, and decided to side with the Salidar embassy when it reached town. Verin is quite old—her hair is starting to turn gray, which to an Aes Sedai means she is quite old indeed. She communicated with Cadsuane's group of sisters in Tear, but has since departed their company. Verin always seems to follow her own agenda, though Siuan once said she had always trusted her, even though she knew she could trust no one. She and Thomas have been waiting for Mat for some time; she is the one who posted fliers of him and Perrin throughout the countryside, hoping to scare one of them up. Known to virtually no one until an hour before her death, Verin was a member of the Black Ajah. She was given the choice one day to take her oaths to serve the Dark One or be executed. She took the oaths to save her own skin; once inducted, she carefully but persistently studied the Black Ajah—how it is organized, what its rules are, and, most importantly, who its members are. She found Tomas, who was a Darkfriend seeking a way out, and he agreed to become her Warder. She wrote down all of her notes, including a list of about 200 sisters she had discovered, in a dense tome that she gave to Egwene al'Vere after drinking poison. The poison would kill her in one hour, which released her from her oath: “I swear not to betray the Great Lord, to keep my secrets until the hour of my death.” Her bravery allowed Egwene to gut the Black Ajah among the rebels, starting with her Keeper of the Chronicles, Sheriam Bayanar, and a Sitter for the Blue Ajah, Moria Karentanis. Verin also left a note with Mat Cauthon just before going to the Tower to spill her secret to Egwene; she made him promise not to open it until several days had passed, but that if he opened it he had to do what it said. The contents of this letter are not known. See also al'Vere, Egwene; Eadwin; Eadwina; Mosvani, Alanna; Tomas.
  39. Alanna Mosvani, NS, p. 59—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She is dark and slender with black hair and dark eyes. She has two surviving Warders, Rand (whom she bonded against his will) and Ihvon; her other, Owein, died in the Two Rivers while scouting the Whitecloak camp. She later found that bonding Rand was a grievious error; not only is it impossible to Compel him in comparison to most Warders (she compared it to attempting to uproot an oak tree with her bare hands), but she constantly feels the pain he experiences from the wound in his side, perhaps even more severely than he feels it. She vanished from Tear mysteriously, leaving no Travelling residues behind. Rand only knows that she is north of Merrilor—far to the north. See also al'Thor, Rand; Ihvon; Mathwin, Verin; Owein.

    Chapter 4: Leaving the Tower

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  40. Meidani, NS, p. 62—Tall, slender, full-busted Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She has golden brown hair to the middle of her back. Her Warder is Leonin. She was one of the Aes Sedai sent back to the Tower by the Aes Sedai in Salidar as a spy under the guise that she was obeying Elaida's summons; she and Elaida were once pillow friends as novices, and the Hall in exile thought she might be able to renew that relationship to their advantage. Elaida is apparently aware of her mission, and makes vicious, thinly-veiled threats to her, such as asking her to look up how traitors have been punished throughout Tower history. Her quarters are surprisingly comfortable and homey, and are indicative of someone who loves to travel. Maps hang on the walls, as prized art would hang on another's walls. She has a pair of Aiel spears on the walls as well as a pair of Sea Folk earrings. Everything is tagged with its source and date of collection. She grew up in Altara. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; Leonin.
  41. Katerine Alruddin, NS, p. 62—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. She has dark, slightly curly hair. Though she obviously keeps it secret, she is actually of the Black Ajah, and has been for twelve years. She was captured by Rand during the battle at Dumai's Wells, but escaped her captors, most likely with assistance from Darkfriends. She and Tarna took rooms in Garon Burlow's house while the Younglings were there. She was among those who kidnapped Egwene, and was one of the sisters charged with guarding her and dosing her with forkroot tea while she was a prisoner in the Tower. crosserf("Elaida") had been relying on her more and more while Tarna was out of the Tower. Verin confirmed that she is a member of the Black Ajah. She participated in the attack on the Tower from Tel'aran'rhiod.
  42. Carlinya, NS, p. 63—Aes Sedai of the White Ajah. She fled the White Tower when Elaida was raised. She held much influence among the sisters, and served as Egwene's advisor from the White Ajah. She had no Warders, which is not unusual for a White sister, though she had been studying men from within her cowl as if to find one among the soldiers in Bryne's army. She had short, dark, curly hair, and was seldom emotional (which is also common for Whites). She died in the attacks by the Black Ajah in Tel'aran'rhiod.
  43. Pritalle Nerbaijan, NS, p. 63—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah from Saldaea. She has green eyes, and an unusually small nose for a Saldaean. She is friends with Atuan, which makes those who know about Atuan suspicious that Pritalle may also be Black. She was among those who captured Egwene. Pritalle did her best to avoid teaching classes, and made little effort to disguise her loathing of it when forced to teach. See also Harril; Larisett, Atuan.
  44. Edesina Azzedin, NS, p. 63—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. She was sent to Tarabon to attempt to restore order there, and was later captured by the Seanchan. She was a prisoner in the Royal Palace of Altara, held by the collar of a damane, but was released by Mat and now travels with him and with Luca's show. She is slim and handsome, with wavy black hair to her waist. When word arrived that the Tower was whole, she wanted to return to the Tower.
  45. Desandre, NS, p. 63—Willowy Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah, now captive with the Asha'man. She told the captive Aes Sedai that they should be cordial with the Asha'man.
  46. Coladara, NS, p. 63—Aes Sedai of unknown Ajah. She serves as advisor to King Paitar of Arafel. She was one of the Accepted when the Dragon was reborn. She retains her position as Paitar's advisor even as he fights at Tarwin's Gap.
  47. Atuan Larisett, NS, p. 63—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, publicly of the Yellow. She has green eyes, and dark hair to her waist in beaded braids. Her face is described as “perfect as it was without being beautiful.” She is from Saldaea, though she largely escaped the characteristic large nose of most Saldaeans. She is one of only three other Black sisters that Talene knows of. She teaches history. See also Minly, Talene; Nerbaijan, Pritalle; Sanghir, Karale; Thornhill, Marris.
  48. Arrow, NS, p. 64—Birgitte's lean gray horse.
  49. Steler, NS, p. 65—Leader of the escort for Moiraine and Siuan. He has a deep, gravelly voice.
  50. Sarene Nemdahl, NS, p. 75—Aes Sedai of the White Ajah from Tarabon. She wears her dark hair in beaded braids, and has a near-perfect, teardrop-shaped face. She has a temper, but she will admit she is wrong if she is. She taught novice classes on “the nature of reality.” Her Warder is Vitalien. She has a secret love of writing poetry—she would die of shame if Vitalien ever discovered that she compares him to a leopard and other graceful, powerful animals in her poems. She assisted in Rand's kidnapping, was captured and shielded after the battle at Dumai's Wells, and is now sworn to Rand. According to Min's viewing, she will fall in love. She is so beautiful that she makes Erian look plain; she may be the most beautiful woman to attain the shawl in decades. She is, however, completely oblivious to that fact. See also Vitalien.
  51. Ellid Abareim, NS, p. 75—One of the Accepted. She is one of the two prettiest girls in the Accepted's quarters, and she is very aware of that fact. She always smiles when looking in a mirror, and always seems to be near to a mirror when she smiles. Waves of golden hair frame her nearly perfect face, her eyes look like large sapphires, and her skin is a rich creamy color. The only fault in her appearance, according to Moiraine, is an over-abundance of bosom. She is very tall, as tall as most men. She is fond of telling everyone that she wants to be a Green and have six Warders. She has spiky handwriting.

    Chapter 5: The Human Heart

    Wheel of Time icon
  52. Meri do Ahlan a'Conlin, NS, p. 79—Murandian noble, allegedly a direct descendent of Katrine a'Coralle, the first Queen of Murandy. She was the first woman at Moiraine's table for registry for the bounty. She is plump, and has a one-week-old son, Sedrin. See also a'Conlin, Sedrin.
  53. Katrine do Catalan a'Coralle, NS, p. 79—First Queen of Murandy. She is allegedly a direct ancestor of Meri a'Conlin. See also a'Conlin, Meri do Ahlan.
  54. Sedrin a'Conlin, NS, p. 80—High rope walker from Valan Luca's team. See a'Conlin, Meri do Ahlan.
  55. Careme Mowly, NS, p. 80—Young mother from Murandy. Her daughter is Sedrin's age, to the day. Her future husband ran off to become a Warder, and she does not like the man she actually did marry nearly as much. She wants very little to do with the White Tower. See also Mowly, Ellya.
  56. Ellya Mowly, NS, p. 80—Infant daughter of Careme. She is the same age as Sedrin, to the day. See also Mowly, Careme.
  57. Susa Wynn, NS, p. 82—Mother of Cyril, an infant that Moiraine adds to her registry. She is near to gaunt, with deep shadows under her eyes and a lost, desperate look. See also Wynn, Cyril; Wynn, Jac.
  58. Cyril Wynn, NS, p. 82—Susa's son. He is too old to receive the bounty the White Tower is paying for newborns in honor of the battle, but Moiraine added him to the list anyway—she reasoned that the Tower could provide 100 crowns to help the misfortunate. See also Wynn, Susa.
  59. Jac Wynn, NS, p. 82—Late husband of Susa Wynn. He died before the fighting began, slipping in the snow and cracking his head on a stone. See also Wynn, Cyril; Wynn, Susa.
  60. Danil, NS, p. 83—Baby boy registered by Moiraine. His mother tried to play Moiraine for a fool, coaxing money from her for a healer. Moiraine quickly disabused her of that notion, and at the same time got rid of any other potential rookery by the women in the line.
  61. Andro, NS, p. 89—Meilyn's Warder. He is lean, and no taller than his mistress. He appears youthful until one notices his eyes. See also Arganya, Meilyn.
  62. Malvin, NS, p. 92—Sour-faced under-lieutenant in the Tower Guard.
  63. Laman Damodred, NS, p. 94—King of Cairhien about twenty years ago. His cutting of Avendoraldera to make a throne unlike anything the world had ever seen precipitated the Aiel War. The war continued for years until all nations united against the Aiel and even Tar Valon was threatened; the war finally ended when the Aiel killed Laman and took his sword. Because of Laman's Pride, and his Sin, House Damodred lost the throne of Cairhien to House Riatin, and the city never again reached any of its former glory—but it also allowed Prophecy to be fulfilled; the Dragon Reborn was able to be born on the slopes of Dragonmount, born of a Maiden of the Spear but raised by the blood of the old nations. His sword, a heron-mark, power-wrought blade with a jewel-encrusted handle, was captured by the Aiel as proof of his death at the end of the Aiel War; the sword was sold many times, each time at a lower price as the value of having proof of his death diminished, until it passed to Aviendha. She gave it to Rand as payment of the debt she felt she owed him for saving her life and everything else he had done for her. He refused the scabbard and handle, letting her keep the jewels they contained, but kept the blade as payment in full of any debts between them. He still wears it. See also Avendesora; Avendoraldera; Damodred, Aldecain; Damodred, Barthanes; Damodred, Caraline; Damodred, Moiraine; Damodred, Moressin; Damodred, Taringail; Janduin; su Riatin Rie, Galldrian.
  64. Moressin Damodred, NS, p. 95—One of Moiraine's uncles, and one of Laman's brothers. Moiraine thinks he and his brother Aldecain are even worse than Laman, each having heat enough for ten men, which they expressed in anger and cruelty, as well as contempt for Moiraine's father. See also Damodred, Laman; Damodred, Moiraine; Damodred, Taringail.
  65. Aldecain Damodred, NS, p. 95—One of Moiraine's uncles, and one of Laman's brothers. Moiraine thinks he and his brother Moressin are even worse than Laman, each having heat enough for ten men, which they expressed in anger and cruelty, as well as contempt for Moiraine's father. See also Damodred, Laman; Damodred, Moiraine; Damodred, Moressin; Damodred, Taringail.

    Chapter 6: Surprises

    Cairhien icon
  66. Setsuko, NS, p. 98—Stocky, pale-eyed novice, shorter than Moiraine. She grew up in Arafel. She is too weak to ever become one of the Accepted.
  67. Sheriam Bayanar, NS, p. 99—Aes Sedai of the Black, formerly of the Blue, with fiery hair. She was Mistress of Novices in the White Tower before she fled to Salidar with the rest of her Ajah. She led the group of six sisters that held most of the influence in Salidar, despite not being part of the Hall of the Tower. Her tilted, green eyes were used to intimidate novices and Aes Sedai alike. She became the Keeper of the Chronicles under Egwene al'Vere among the rebels. She was very efficient, but she hated the paperwork involved with being Keeper, and was often heard muttering under her breath that she wished she were still Mistress of Novices. She lost a considerable amount of weight in the months before her death. She was beaten, apparently as a way to extract information, by an unknown assailant during those weeks. She often wished she had chosen the Brown Ajah, which would have allowed her to isolate herself from the Tower, politics, and stress in general. Known to almost no one (except Verin) until shortly before she was exposed and executed by Egwene, Sheriam was of the Black Ajah, and fought to raise Egwene to the Amyrlin Seat by order of the Chosen. Egwene watched Sheriam's execution personally, listening to her confess to several incredible crimes in her final minutes. Her fiery red head left her body along with those of about fifty other sisters among the rebels. Editor's note: Those who remember, as I do quite vividly, a certain chapter in New Spring, will recall that Moiraine and Siuan were very good friends as novices and Accepted. Moiraine proposed bringing Sheriam in on their hunt for the Dragon Reborn, which Siuan insisted they should not do. Her reason was because they needed to tell as few people as possible, and possibly because she thought Sheriam was a bit of a gossip—perhaps some day Moiraine will realize just how close she was to revealing everything to a Darkfriend. See also Arinvar; Keeper of the Chronicles; Mistress of Novices.
  68. Lisandre, NS, p. 99—Very tall, golden-haired novice. She will be able to test for Accepted if she loses her sulky attitude. She probably will, too—the Tower has ways of getting rid of things it does not want.
  69. Serafelle, NS, p. 99—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She helps to Heal Mat from the evil of the dagger from Shadar Logoth.
  70. Ryma Galfrey, NS, p. 99—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah, now a damane prisoner of the Seanchan. See Pura. See also Pura.
  71. Jennet, NS, p. 99—Pretty, big-eyed Murandian Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She was one of the sisters selected by the Aes Sedai in Salidar to return to the White Tower to ferret out any information possible. She has already been warned by Beonin that Beonin had betrayed their status to Elaida.
  72. Laras, NS, p. 104—Mistress of the Kitchens in the White Tower. She gave Min a makeup kit that she kept meaning to throw away but never did. Instead, Leane used it. She helped Siuan and Leane escape with Min, and showed a reasonable degree of sympathy for Egwene during her imprisonment. Her spoon is used for hitting as often as it is for tasting. She has a pudgy, round face, and her hair is starting to gray. Lines crease the sides of her eyes. She has thick, fat fingers.
  73. Salia Pomfrey, NS, p. 104—Woman who gave birth to a boy and then returned, or tried to return, to her village in Andor after her husband died on the second day of the Aiel War.
  74. Martan, NS, p. 106—Young clerk in the Tower. He and Mistress Wellin were assigned to the task of copying the Accepted's handwriting in the registry, until they found Moiraine and Siuan already upon the task.
  75. Mistress Wellin, NS, p. 107—Clerk in the Tower. She and Mistress Wellin were assigned to the task of copying the Accepted's handwriting in the registry, until they found Moiraine and Siuan already upon the task.
  76. Willa Mandair, NS, p. 108—Woman who gave birth to a son to the west of the Erinin on the day Gitara died, “in sight of Dragonmount.” See also Mandair, Bili.
  77. Bili Mandair, NS, p. 108—Willa's infant son. He was born “in sight of Dragonmount,” which is ridiculous; the mountain is visible for miles and miles in every direction from Tar Valon. See also Mandair, Willa.
  78. Lord Ellisar, NS, p. 108—Lord in whose encampment many of the infants that Ellid took down the names of for the bounty.
  79. Jarna Malari, NS, p. 109—Leader of the Black Ajah before Alviarin. She was killed by Ishamael because she set in motion a plan that resulted in the death of Tamra Ospenya, then the Amyrlin Seat. She was openly of the Gray Ajah. She appeared to have died while testing a ter'angreal that had not been tried in centuries. See also Casban, Galina; Freidhen, Alviarin; Ishamael; Ospenya, Tamra.
  80. Taringail Damodred, NS, p. 110—A Prince of Cairhien and First Prince of the Sword of Andor until his death. His first wife, Tigraine, then the Daughter-Heir of Andor, bore him a son, Galad, before she vanished, causing the War of Succession. After the war was over, he married Morgase Trakand, the new Queen. Taringail and Morgase had two children, Gawyn and Elayne. He died when Elayne was barely old enough to remember him, which was probably fortunate for Morgase; unbeknownst to her, he had planned to engineer her death and make himself the first King of Andor in a millenium. Gawyn has few memories of him, but remembers that he was tall and handsome, with slight waves in his hair. Morgase remembers all too well how he tried to manipulate her, succeeding more often than not. He died hunting. See also Damodred, Aldecain; Damodred, Galadedrid; Damodred, Laman; Damodred, Moiraine; Damodred, Moressin; Damodred, Tigraine; Mantear, Luc; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Gawyn; Trakand, Morgase.
  81. Anvaere Damodred, NS, p. 110—Moiraine's older sister. She cares for horses, hawking, and little else. She also has a temper—no one wants her on the Sun Throne. See also Damodred, Innloine; Damodred, Moiraine.
  82. Innloine Damodred, NS, p. 110—Moiraine's older sister. She is a warm and loving mother, though very stubborn and not very bright. Stubborn and not bright are poor qualities in a ruler anyway, but playing with her children causes her to forget about state business entirely. Moiraine knows that no one plans to put her on the Sun Throne. See also Damodred, Anvaere; Damodred, Moiraine.
  83. Tsutama Rath, NS, p. 111—Golden-haired Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. Born of a butcher, she is extremely flamboyant and has no fewer than three clocks in her rooms. She has an extreme dislike of men. Tsutama resigned as a Sitter fifteen years ago and went into “voluntary” retreat after participating in the “disgusting events” of twenty years ago. When she returned, she was perceived as nervous and shifty, but now that she has been raised to the head of the Red Ajah (their Highest), that perception has been revealed to be incorrect.

    Chapter 7: The Itch

    Wheel of Time icon
  84. Kerene Nagashi, NS, p. 114—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She had two sisters and two brothers, both of which have long since passed away. She has at least two Warders, including Karile and Stepin. Very tall and skinny, her hair is cut shorter than her Warders' hair, above her shoulders. She does needlework when not traveling, though she rarely remains in the Tower long before leaving again. She is the strongest Aes Sedai alive except for Meilyn and Cadsuane; no one has come to the Tower in over six hundred years who could match her potential. See also Karile; Stepin.
  85. Rina Hafden, NS, p. 115—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah, and very recently raised to a Sitter for the Green in Tar Valon. Normally Greens are nominated and then appointed to the Hall by the Captain-General, but she was appointed by Adelorna without a nomination. Rina is the Aes Sedai who is bonded to Elyas Machera. See also Bastine, Adelorna; Machera, Elyas; Waylin.
  86. Waylin, NS, p. 115—One of Rina's Warders. See also Hafden, Rina.
  87. Elyas Machera, NS, p. 115—Lanky old man with graying hair to his waist. He was a Warder at one time, bonded to Rina Hafden, and left the Tower when he discoverd that he could talk to wolves. He did not find any problem with the ability by itself, but felt the need to get away from the Red Ajah, who thought they should gentle him (even though there was nothing to be gentled) because of his ability. Elyas helped Perrin learn that he could talk to wolves as well; Perrin did not necessarily like the ability, but has gotten over the dislike of it as well. The wolves call him Long Tooth. Compared to him, Aiel are noisy when they are trying not to be heard. Unlike Perrin, he generally avoids the World of Dreams, what Perrin calls the Wolf Dream, though he lets himself be drawn there when needed. See also Aybara, Perrin; Hafden, Rina; Long Tooth; Noam.
  88. Jala Bandevin, NS, p. 115—Gray-haired Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She is an imposing woman despite being nearly a hand shorter than Moiraine. She ran off immediately to tell Elaida (or someone else in the Tower) who it was they had captured at North Harbor.
  89. Karile, NS, p. 116—One of Kerene's Warders. His hair and beard form a golden mane. See also Nagashi, Kerene.
  90. Stepin, NS, p. 116—One of Kerene's Warders. He looks more like a clerk than a Warder. He has narrow shoulders and sad brown eyes. See also Nagashi, Kerene.
  91. Aisha Raveneos, NS, p. 118—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. Siuan gave her a similar message to the one Moiraine gave Karene. She has a plain face, and could pass for a farmer's wife.
  92. Valera Gorovni, NS, p. 119—Small, plump Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She is always found wearing a smile, and always seems to be bustling even when she is still. She has worn the shawl for over three hundred years.

    Chapter 8: Shreds of Serenity

    Fish icon
  95. Willim of Manaches, NS, p. 122—Essay writer of long ago. His works are compiled in The Essays of Willim of Manaches. Loial brought the book with him on his visit to Rand, but it got damp along the way. See also Kayenzi, Shivena.
  96. Shivena Kayenzi, NS, p. 122—Philosopher from Saldaea. She was influenced by the work of Willim of Manaches. Meilyn quizzes Moiraine as to just how much.
  97. Adelorna Bastine, NS, p. 124—Short, slim, regal, Saldaean Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She is the Captain-General of the Green Ajah, the Ajah's leader. She was once birched by Elaida. She chose Rina for the Hall without a nominations process, which goes against Green custom. She has three Warders; one died in the Seanchan attack, and Talric was wounded. She is of a height with Egwene, with tilted eyes and dark hair. See also Talric.
  98. Shemaen, NS, p. 124—Aes Sedai of unknown Ajah.

    Chapter 9: It Begins

    Six-pointed Star icon
  99. Anaiya, NS, p. 136—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She had blunt, motherly facial features. She was very good friends with Moiraine both as a novice and as a full sister. She, like all Blues, fled the Tower when Elaida was raised to the Striped Stole, and carried a position of considerable influence in the “Little Tower” in exile from Tar Valon. She dressed very simply, and very little upset her. She was Aes Sedai for 50 or 60 years before Kairen came to the Tower. She was killed, along with her Warder, presumably by Arangar; one would assume she began asking too many questions about Halima's alleged mistress, Cabriana Mecandes, one of Anaiya's closest friends. See also Mecandes, Cabriana; Setagana; Stang, Kairen.

    Chapter 10: It Finishes

    Chapter 11: Just Before Dawn

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  101. Jeaine Caide, NS, p. 154—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the Green. She grew up in Arad Doman. She has coppery skin and a swan-like neck, and is fond of thin, clinging dresses. This figure and taste is similar to how Leane acts, dresses, and looks, and is typical of a Domani woman. When in Tanchico, Jeaine tried to kill Nynaeve with the ter'angreal that produces balefire. Liandrin refuses to believe that she even saw Nynaeve there, much less attacked her. Jeaine attempted to disguise herself as Cadsuane to get past Thom into the Pit of Doom—Thom acted like he was convinced, then casually threw a knife at her, severing her spine. He was contemptuous of her disguise—her gait was all wrong. She was the fifth Aes Sedai that Thom killed.
  102. Leane Sharif, NS, p. 158—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah, formerly of the Blue. She grew up in Arad Doman, and has coppery skin. Just as her family members were training her in the seductive ways of Domani women, Leane found that her life would take a different direction: she could channel saidar, and would do so with or without teaching. She became an Aes Sedai, a member of the Blue Ajah, and was eventually raised to Keeper of the Chronicles under Siuan Sanche. During the coup led by Elaida a'Roihan and Alviarin Freidhen that deposed Siuan, Leane was thrown in the dungeon and stilled. Leane tried turning to her seductive side to try to replace what she lost in stilling; she was out of practice, but did well enough. She eventually convinced the Aes Sedai in Salidar to let her stay with them and maintain the network of eyes-and-ears she kept in Tar Valon as Keeper. She was later Healed by Nynaeve, and restored to some of her former capacity for using the One Power. The Hall of the Tower in Salidar decided that since she had been stilled, she was no longer Aes Sedai for that time and thus all of her titles and choice of Ajah were null and void. Instead of petitioning to re-enter the Blue Ajah, she asked the Green Ajah if it would accept her; it did, and she became the first sister to ever switch Ajahs. Her eyes-and-ears as Keeper are retained by her; she was the only Aes Sedai to plant spies in the city itself. These spies were very useful in determining both what is going on in Tar Valon and what the Ajahs were leaving out of their reports to Egwene. She has considerable strength with Earth, and is the second best at making cuendillar, after Egwene herself. While carrying out Egwene's plan to turn the harbor chains to cuendillar, she was captured and held in the dungeons below the Tower. She was allowed only one dress, the one in which she was captured, which she washed every third day in the remains of her bath water. Now that the Tower has been reunited, Leane is held in some esteem among the novices and Accepted—not only was she stilled yet still channels, she changed Ajahs! She has returned to her Domani ways with fervor, taking time every morning to put on makeup and dress seductively. She even took time to put on makeup before the battle. See also Amaena; Anjen; Freidhen, Alviarin; Keeper of the Chronicles; Resara; Sanche, Siuan.
  103. Rafela Cindal, NS, p. 158—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah with a round face. She is now sworn to Rand. She negotiated the treaty with the Sea Folk along with Merana. Min says that Rand should be able to trust her. She was part of Aviendha's circle at the battle of Thakan'dar, and later joined the Dragonsworn protecting the Pit of Doom.
  104. Eadyth, NS, p. 158—Sitter for the Blue Ajah. She has white hair to her waist, and a stout, round face. She is also First Selector of the Blue Ajah, the Ajah head, though this fact is known only to Blues. She is perhaps the most capable Blue in the last hundred years, according to Kairen.
  105. Anlee, NS, p. 158—Grave-faced, graying Sitter for the Blue Ajah. She wears lots of jewelry.
  106. Lelaine Akashi, NS, p. 158—Tall, slender Sitter for the Blue Ajah. She carries a dignified air about her. She was a Sitter in the White Tower for forty years until Siuan was deposed. She is quite old. She led one of the two factions that divided the Hall of the Tower under Egwene. Lelaine had a strong desire to hold the Amyrlin Seat herself, enough that once that Egwene was captured she nearly tried to seize it. She took to feigning support for Egwene to establish power in the Hall, anticipating that Egwene would not return. She is capable, strong-willed, and decisive. She is not beautiful, but she is pretty, particularly when she smiles. She is slender and graceful, with no gray in her dark hair. Her face is almond-shaped, with full lips. She represented the Blue Ajah at Nynaeve's test for the shawl. See also Cassin, Romanda; Shaeren, Burin.

    Chapter 12: Entering Home

    Fish icon
  107. Kairen Stang, NS, p. 162—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She grew up in Andor. She was part of Salidar's embassy to Rand, and later traveled with the Tower in exile outside Tar Valon. She was strong in Earth, and was one of the sisters Egwene had making cuendillar ornaments. Egwene had planned to use Kairen and Leane for the special mission to turn the harbor chains to cuendillar, but she was killed shortly before the mission took place. Her assassin is unknown, but strong suspicion is cast upon Aran'gar. See also Llyw.
  108. Cabriana Mecandes, NS, p. 163—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah whom Semirhage tortured (along with her Warder) in order to extract information from her about the Aes Sedai and the White Tower. Her identity was used to give Halima a reason to know things about Aes Sedai, since she claimed to be her servant. She was one of three sisters referred to by Blues as The Three because they were so close. The other two were Anaiya and Kairen. The Three never talked of their affairs except with each other. Editor's note: it stands to reason that Anaiya and Kairen were killed by Halima because they asked the wrong questions about Cabriana and Halima gave the wrong answers. See also Saranov, Halima.
  109. Natasia, NS, p. 166—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She is a slim woman from Saldaea with dark tilted eyes and high cheekbones. She is a very lenient teacher.
  110. Cetalia Delarme, NS, p. 168—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She is as strong as Moiraine and Siuan will be when they reach full potential. She is tall and square-faced, with steel-gray hair in a multitude of braids to her waist. She is the head of the Blue Ajah eyes-and-ears, the best spy network in the world.
  111. Carewin Damodred, NS, p. 173—Moiraine's great-grandmother. She ruled Cairhien for over fifty years. The White Tower would call her a very successful ruler because Cairhien prospered and had few wars during her reign. However, her name is still used to frighten children in Cairhien. See also Damodred, Laman; Damodred, Moiraine.
  112. Lord Captain Commander Pedron Niall, NS, p. 174—Former Lord Captain Commander of the Children of the Light, highest officer among the Children. He was one of the great military commanders of the world, in company with Davram Bashere, Agelmar Jagad, Rodel Ituralde, Gareth Bryne, Mat Cauthon, and several Aiel chiefs. He was trying to get Altara and Murandy to cede land to Illian so the Council of Nine would not invade both countries. He also tried to expand Amadicia's borders into parts of Ghealdan. His headquarters were in Amadicia, and he ruled there even above King Ailron, although this was not spoken of openly. Niall once offered a treaty with Queen Morgase of Andor, offering Whitecloak assistance to retake her throne in exchange for Whitecloak presence in Caemlyn and elsewhere in Andor, a presence that Morgase had not allowed even a fraction of during her reign. Niall was killed by his alleged Spymaster, Abdel Omerna, who claimed he had gone against everything the Children stood for by allowing Morgase to avoid being put to the question. He was replaced by Eamon Valda, who also killed Omerna. Rumor puts him dead in a duel or a skirmish though Morgase is certain Valda himself is responsible in some fashion or another. See also Balwer, Sebban; Omerna, Abdel; Valda, Eamon.

    Chapter 13: Business in the City

    Wheel of Time icon
  113. Ilain Dormaile, NS, p. 179—Slim, graying, small woman, a full hand shorter than Moiraine. Moiraine's father banked with her older brother, who still handles Moiraine's accounts in Cairhien, making Ilain an obvious choice for her banker in Tar Valon. She is very secretive on her customers' behalf.
  114. Ries Gorthanes, NS, p. 179—Tall, educated man from Cairhienin. Broad-shouldered, he was brought up as a soldier. He has a clean-shaven, well-proportioned face. He is good-looking despite an inch-long scar near his left eye. He came to Mistress Dormaile to get access to Moiraine's finances. He was denied that access, and his nosiness was promptly reported to Moiraine herself.
  115. Tamore Alkohima, NS, p. 182—The best seamstress in Tar Valon, according to at least five Blue sisters. She is fair-skinned for a Domani.

  116. Adine Canford, NS, p. 192—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah who teaches a class that Nicola asks to be late for so she can practice making cuendillar.
  117. Sierin Vayu, NS, p. 196—Amrylin Seat years ago, two Amyrlins before Siuan Sanche. She was raised from the Gray Ajah, but according to Moiraine she had more than a touch of Red in her. She only reigned for about two years, then died abruptly; Alviarin wonders whether Elaida had a hand in her death; the Black Ajah did not. In fact, Chesmal Emry convinced the Red Ajah to kill her before she could arrest her. See also Amira; Amyrlin Seat; Basaheen, Duhara.
  118. Amira, NS, p. 197—Stocky Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah with long beaded braids. She is the new Mistress of Novices under Sierin Vayu. It is tradition to appoint a Mistress of Novices from the Ajah one was raised from, but Sierin was raised from the Gray while Amira was from the Red. However, most think of Sierin as more Red than Gray anyway.
  119. Duhara Basaheen, NS, p. 197—Former Sitter for the Red Ajah in Tar Valon. Apparently Elaida had to show her who was boss at some point. She has large, dark eyes and coppery skin, and is tall and slim. She served as Keeper of the Chronicles under Sierin Vayu. Elayne told Norry to use Hake to spy on her while she was staying at The Greeting Hall, an inn in Caemlyn. Duhara was revealed by Verin to be of the Black Ajah. She has been replaced as a Sitter by Barasine. She is now a Dreadlord, and was linked with Hessalam when they fought Aviendha. See also Barasine; Keeper of the Chronicles; Vayu, Sierin.
  120. Moraine, NS, p. 197—Misspelling of Moiraine.

  123. Queen Ethenielle Kirukan Materasu, NS, p. 205—Holder of the Throne of the Clouds of Kandor—that is, the Queen of Kandor. She is plump, has gray-streaked black hair, and is somewhat matronly for a Borderlander. She is about half a hand taller than Merilille. She has blue eyes. She was advised by Nianh, an Aes Sedai, but Nianh fled Kandor as soon as news came that the Amyrlin had been deposed. Stern but fair, she is known for meddling in the affairs of the southern nations. Ethenielle was the only world ruler, other than Fortuona, that was not at Merrilor, she was still organizing the refugees fleeing Kandor after the country fell to the Trollocs. Her country is aflame, first casualty of Tarmon Gai'don. See also Einone; Ismic; Kirukan; Materasu, Antol; Materasu, Brys; Nazelle; Ramsin, Kalyan; Surasa.

  142. Mistress Asher, NS, p. 226—Gray-haired wilder staying in The Gates of Heaven, an inn in Canluum. A merchant, she wears only a red-enameled pin for jewelry.
  143. Cadsuane Melaidhrin, NS, p. 228—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah with iron-gray hair that she keeps in a bun. She is handsome, not pretty. She at some point retired to a rose garden in northern Ghealdan, but has since left it due to the difficulty of growing decent roses with the weather the way it used to be. She refused two appointments to the Hall of the Tower, when refusing even once is unheard of. She also refused to become head of the Green Ajah. It is said that she has had more Warders than most sisters have had shoes. She has more strength than anyone in a thousand years except perhaps for Egwene and Nynaeve. Although she is a Green, she has confronted and captured more men that can channel than any other woman; unknown to most, the men she captures tend to live longer after being gentled than the average. She is somewhat of a living legend among Aes Sedai. According to Min, Cadsuane would teach Rand and the Asha'man something—they would not like it, especially not from her, but they would have to learn it. She is the oldest Aes Sedai alive. Cadsuane wears many ornaments in her hair, all of which are ter'angreal she has collected over the years—Semirhage calls it a “paralis net.” One of them is a reservoir, or a well—it “stores” saidar for later use in places where one might not be able to tap the Source, such as inside the Guardian at Far Madding, her hometown. It is not known whether it works inside an Ogier stedding, too. Another vibrates in the presence of men who can channel; it is likely this ornament that has allowed her to capture so many men to be gentled. Another resembles a weather vane, and moves to point in the direction that someone last touched the Source. There are many others, including three that she does not know the purpose of. Siuan suspected Cadsuane may have been a Darkfriend, but based on her actions and thoughts so far, that seems unlikely. Verin told Rand that she thinks Cadsuane can be trusted, and Verin is also not a Darkfriend (though she played one in public, of course). Cadsuane did, reluctantly, agree to be Rand's advisor, provided he adhered to a proper level of conduct. She is just shy of 300 years old. See also al'Thor, Rand; Mathwin, Verin; Shore.

  174. Lews Therin Telamon, tEotW, p. ix—The Dragon, Breaker of the World. He was perhaps the greatest man who ever lived, and the most powerful Aes Sedai in recorded history. During the War of the Shadow, at the age of 400, he led the forces of the Light against the Forsaken, and led the final stroke which re-sealed the Dark One back into his prison. Unfortunately, during this stroke he was driven insane by the Dark One's touch, eventually killing his wife Ilyena, his children, and everyone he loved, as well as anyone who carried a drop of his blood. For this act, people remember him with a new name: Kinslayer. After he had done this, Ishamael gave him his sanity back long enough for him to realize what he had done; Lews Therin killed himself by drawing on saidin too heavily, causing a mountain to form on the spot where he stood. This mountain is called Dragonmount, and is near the present-day city of Tar Valon. It is unfortunate that the name of one of the greatest men to ever live is now synonymous with evil, for Lews Therin killed his family due to the Dark One's influence, but without Lews Therin there may not have been a world left in which to kill them. Lews Therin's voice often spoke inside Rand's head, offering advice or sobbing over lost women or ranting about killing men who could channel. It even tried to seize control of saidin sometimes, much to Rand's fear—Rand was certain that Lews Therin could not take control of saidin away from him if he seized it first, but experience had shown that if Lews Therin seized it first, Rand would be at his mercy until he released. Semirhage revealed that Lews Therin's voice in Rand's head is not without precedent—indeed, hearing a real voice often indicates a person dangerously close to outright insanity. Rand's time spent atop Dragonmount, when he destroyed the remaining Choedan Kal, seems to have liberated Rand's brain from the Dark One's touch—he no longer hears the voice in his head, and has effectively reunited Lews Therin's memories with his own inside Rand's head. He also remembers what happened during Lews Therin's attack on the Bore.

  175. Ilyena Therin Moerelle, tEotW, p. ix—Wife of Lews Therin Telamon during the Age of Legends and the War of the Shadow. She had light hair similar in color to Elayne and Aviendha. According to the memories of Lews Therin's that used to flash through Rand's head, Ilyena never flashed her temper at Lews Therin when she got angry at herself. Lews Therin often wailed for her loss for hours on end; these rants were usually started by anything and everything having to do with women, love, hate, killing, friends, or enemies. It is evident that Demandred also fancied Ilyena, and the fact that she fell for Lews Therin only deepened his hatred of him. She was the last of the names expunged from Rand's list. See also Eronaile, Mierin; Lanfear; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  176. Lord of the Morning, tEotW, p. x—Title by which Lews Therin Telamon was known by during the War of the Shadow. Rand uses it when he wants to make a point. See al'Thor, Rand; Dragon, The; Telamon, Lews Therin. See also al'Thor, Rand; Dragon, The; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  177. Elan Morin Tedronai, tEotW, p. x—Prominent philosopher of the Age of Legends who eventually became Ishamael, highest of the Dark One's servants. He was once humbled by Lews Therin in the Hall of Servants, and defeated by him at the gates of Paaren Disen. He turned to the Shadow for philosophical reasons: there was no path to victory for the Light. The only path to victory was to follow the Great Lord and rule for a time before all things ended. He wants destruction, and end to his soul's cycle of rebirth and perpetual defeat. See also Ba'alzamon; Ishamael; Moridin.
  178. Betrayer of Hope, tEotW, p. x— See Ishamael.
  179. Kinslayer, tEotW, p. xi—Name given to Lews Therin Telamon after he killed his family in his madness. See Dragon, The; Telamon, Lews Therin. See also Dragon, The; Moerelle, Ilyena Therin; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  180. Tamyrlin, tEotW, p. xi—Title Lews Therin Telamon wore the ring of. It is likely this position was the predecessor of the modern Amyrlin Seat. See also Amyrlin Seat; Dragon, The; Lord of the Morning; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  181. Great Lord of the Dark, tEotW, p. xii—Name used by Darkfriends to refer to Shai'tan, the Dark One; they claim that to use his true name would be blasphemy. See Shai'tan.
  182. Promised One, tEotW, p. xv—Name used in prophecies to refer to the Dragon Reborn, the man foretold to come at mankind's greatest hour of need to save the world. See also Dragon Reborn.

  185. Egwene al'Vere, tEotW, p. 5 [1]—Young woman from Emond's Field and daughter of the innkeeper there, now raised to the Amyrlin Seat. She has considerable strength with the One Power, and is one of the strongest Aes Sedai in over a thousand years. She is also the first Dreamer in the Tower in almost 500 years; she trained with the Wise Ones to learn more of this Talent. Before her time with the Wise Ones, she was sold by Liandrin to Suroth to be made damane. She was held captive under the name Tuli under care of the sul'dam Renna Emain. When Egwene escaped, she left Renna with her a'dam around Renna's neck; the fact that Renna and another sul'dam, Seta, who was similarly captured when Egwene escaped, were bound by the a'dam threatens to destroy the foundation of Seanchan society, especially their enslavement of women who can channel. Egwene is good friends with Elayne Trakand, the Daughter-Heir of Andor, and is also a childhood friend of Rand al'Thor, the Dragon Reborn. In fact, Rand and Egwene were all but Promised in their youth, but both of them feel an almost sibling-like love for each other now; they knew that they could not get married, and did not want to. Egwene was at one point the love object of both of Elayne's brothers, Galad and Gawyn—she was flattered by Galad's attentions, but she did not return them. She did find Gawyn to her liking, and had a dream of bonding him as her Warder; she did so to prevent him from dying due to injuries suffered while protecting her from Seanchan assassins, and married him once he had recovered in a small ceremony conducted by her Keeper of the Chronicles, Silviana Brehon. Egwene was most likely chosen Amyrlin because she was in the Aiel Waste when the rebellion occurred, and because the Aes Sedai thought she could be manipulated by them without too much trouble; if this was their intent, they made a grave mistake, for Egwene promises to be one of the strongest Amyrlins in history. Egwene enlisted Gareth Bryne as the commander of her army to invade Tar Valon and remove Elaida from power. The invasion proved to be unnecessary—Elaida was captured, and the Hall chose her to replace her just before the invasion began. Egwene has opened the novice books to all interested women for the first time in history—in the past, they were only open to girls of a certain age, for fear that older women would not be able to handle the discipline. This policy has increased the Tower's population to levels unseen since Artur Hawkwing's time. Egwene has also discovered many lost Talents of the Age of Legends, such as Dreaming, Traveling, and the making of cuendillar. She was guided to Dreaming by the Wise Ones, with whom she studied in the Aiel Waste, and was guided to the making of cuendillar by Moghedien while she was captured, but Traveling was her discovery alone—she worked it out herself based on her familiarity with Tel'aran'rhiod. She has recovered some other abilities through Moghedien as well. Prior to the reunification of the Tower, Egwene was captured by sisters loyal to Elaida after executing her plan to block the harbor by turning the harbor chain to cuendillar. She was held prisoner in the Tower, and re-enlisted as a Novice again. She accepted all punishments Elaida and others imposed upon her for insisting that she was still the Amyrlin Seat and still Aes Sedai. Her strong will and persistence earned her the respect of nearly all the novices, several of the Accepted, and more than a few Aes Sedai as well. Egwene's plans to subvert Elaida from the inside by making suggestions and hinting that various things Elaida has done are indefinsible helped convince even more sisters, including Silviana, to support her. Egwene tried very hard to convince the Hall—both the Hall in Tar Valon and the Hall in Exile—that they must be prepared for the Seanchan attack she knew was imminent. When it came anyway, she fought harder than perhaps anyone believed possible, doing almost as much damage to the Seanchan as they did to the Tower's inhabitants. Egwene was rescued from the Tower shortly after the raid by Gawyn, Bryne, and Siuan—she was quite angry at Siuan and Gawyn for disobeying her orders to leave her be. Gawyn had to save her life to crawl back into her good graces. She would probably refuse to acknowledge it, but she is almost as stubborn as Nynaeve. Egwene has grave concerns about Rand's plans to break the Seals on the Dark One's prison.

  187. Widow Aynal, tEotW, p. [2]—Woman for which Widow Aynal's Meadow is named. No one remembers which Aynal widow it was actually named for; the meadow has been called that as long as anyone can remember.
  188. Berowyn al'Vere, tEotW, p. [3]—Oldest of the five daughters of Bran and Marin al'Vere; Egwene's oldest sister. She has been allowed to wear her hair in a braid, the Two Rivers symbol of adulthood for women, since she was sixteen years old. Berowyn was married, but her husband and her newborn child died in the epidemic of breakbone fever that struck the village; the same epidemic threatened Egwene's life as well. She has since treated Egwene as though she were Berowyn's own child, mooning over her as if she were the last thing left in her life. See also al'Vere, Alene; al'Vere, Brandelwyn; al'Vere, Egwene; al'Vere, Elisa; al'Vere, Loise; al'Vere, Marin.
  189. Ewin Finngar, tEotW, p. 5 [4]—A young man from Emond's Field. He is as old as Faile, and left home to see the world after he heard Perrin's stories.
  190. Corin Ayellin, tEotW, p. 36 [4]—Woman from Emond's Field who is good at making plum puddings. Nynaeve stole one from her on a dare from Nela Thane when she was sixteen; Corin beat her soundly for it. See also Ayellin, Dav.
  191. Perrin Aybara, tEotW, p. 4 [4]—A young man from Emond's Field. He is ta'veren. When he and Egwene got separated from the rest of the group while fleeing the Trollocs on Winternight, Perrin met a man named Elyas Machera. Elyas, a former Warder who found he could talk to wolves, helped Perrin discover the same ability in himself. Perrin's eyes are now yellow, just like the wolves' eyes, and he can enter what he calls the Wolf Dream (known to most as Tel'aran'rhiod, the World of Dreams) with them. Perrin is a childhood friend of fellow ta'veren Rand al'Thor and Mat Cauthon. On the way to Tear, Perrin encountered a young woman by the name of Zarine Bashere, a Hunter for the Horn who took the name of Faile (which means “Falcon” in the Old Tongue) as a more appropriate name for a Hunter for the Horn. The two are now married. Perrin is a very large man—he was always a big person, which caused him to be very cautious since he found as a child that he could easily hurt other children if his temper got out of hand. His size helped considerably when helping Master Luhhan on his forge, but that combined with his careful nature sometimes gave others the impression that he is slow and stupid. He returned to the Two Rivers for a time to repel the series of Trolloc attacks; he and his wife are recognized as Lord and Lady there, the first noblility of the Two Rivers since the Trolloc Wars. When he returned, he began to draw the eye of Berelain sur Paendrag Paeron, the First of Mayene—Perrin wants nothing more than to be as far from her as possible, but Berelain will not take no for an answer, much to Faile's dismay and intense jealousy. Perrin was instrumental in freeing Rand from his entrapment at Dumai's Wells; the two had a fight afterwards (they had planned it as a way for Perrin to leave, although they most likely did not plan on it being as violent as it was), and Perrin went to Ghealdan to see if he could tame Masema. On the way, his wife was captured by Shaido, and he spent weeks single-mindedly trying to track her down. He eventually formed an alliance with Tylee Khirgan, a Seanchan Banner-General, to help him defeat the Shaido and free his wife. Despite his strong desires to avoid both combat and lordship, Perrin has become a very good general and leader. Perrin witnessed Rand's internal battle on Dragonmount's summit. He has also been trained by the wolves in manipulating Tel'aran'rhiod; his skills have allowed him to fight Slayer, protecting wolves and humans alike in the process, though not without casualties—Hopper himself was killed in the process. Perrin has become strong enough in Tel'aran'rhiod to halt a stream of balefire in its path—in so doing, he impressed upon Egwene that nothing is beyond the power of a strong enough mind in the World of Dreams, leading her to defeat the a'dam Mesaana later placed on her and breaking Mesaana's mind in the process. Perrin has since come to terms with the wolf in him, realizing now that he can reach the balance between man and wolf that is right for him. The only thing that throws him off is love for Faile, but he now has realized that she is his link to his human side if he ever forgets.

  192. Rand al'Thor, tEotW, p. 1 [4]—A young man from Emond's Field in the Two Rivers, now proclaimed to be the Dragon Reborn. He is very tall, with curly red-blond hair and bright blue-gray eyes that shine like gemstones. He was raised by Tam al'Thor and his wife Kari (until her death around the time Rand was five) in Emond's Field. His real parents, however, were Janduin, the chief of the Taardad Aiel who brought the four clans across the Dragonwall to punish Laman's Sin, and a Maiden of the Spear named Shaiel, who was actually Tigraine Damodred, the runaway Daughter-Heir of Andor. Tigraine gave birth to Rand on the slopes of Dragonmount, in accordance with prophecy: “born of a Maiden, of the ancient blood but raised by the Old.” Rand has a heron branded into each of his palms, which he received from the sword Tam gave him while fighting Ishamael. He also has two dragons on his forearms, which he received in Rhuidean to designate him as the Car'a'carn, the Chief of Chiefs of the Aiel. Until very recently, he had started wearing a new sword: curved, with a black scabbard, painted with two twisting dragons much like those on his forearms. It was found under a submerged statue. He has since given this sword to Tam. He is not only the Dragon Reborn, but also He Who Comes With the Dawn, the man prophesied to reunite the Aiel, and the Coramoor, the one prophesied to bring the Sea Folk out of the Sea. He can channel strongly, more so than any person who ever lived (except the previous users of his soul, including Lews Therin Telamon, who were obviously of equal strength), and is also ta'veren, the most strongly so since Lews Therin as well. Lews Therin's voice seemed to have found a new place inside of Rand's head for some time; he talked to him in a mad voice when Rand least expected it, sometimes offering sound advice or knowledge, sometimes babbling, sometimes even trying to wrest control of saidin from him. Semirhage revealed that hearing this voice was a symptom of the madness associated with touching tainted saidin for as long as Rand did. Rand has since managed to create some sort of barrier between the effects of the taint and his mind; the net effect is that he is no longer insane, but retains all of Lews Therin's memories, all his knowledge, and all his experience. Unlike Lews Therin, Rand is accompanied by two other ta'veren during this turing of the Wheel, two men born within days (hours, even) of him named Matrim Cauthon and Perrin Aybara, who both grew up in Emond's Field as well. Rand is destined, according to Min's viewings, to fall in love with three women (and has): Min Farshaw, Elayne Trakand, and Aviendha of the Tardaad Aiel. Rand has had success in fighting many of the Forsaken; all to confront him have died or been trapped. He killed Aginor at the Eye of the World after the Green Man killed Balthamel; he allowed Moiraine to kill Be'lal in the Stone of Tear, and killed Ishamael in the Stone shortly afterward; in the wagons near the Spine of the World, Lanfear confronted him and was pushed into the land of the Eelfinn by Moiraine, where she was subsequently tortured by the Eelfinn and partially drained of her ability to channel until “rescued” by Moridin; he killed Rahvin in Tel'aran'rhiod when he came to the Royal Palace in Caemlyn; Asmodean, his teacher, was killed shortly after Rahvin met his fate; Sammael met his fate while fighting Rand in Shadar Logoth at the hands of Mashadar; Osan'gar, the reincarnation of Aginor, died at Shador Logoth when Rand was cleansing saidin; Semirhage was captured during her attempt to capture Rand and bind him with a Domination Band (a sort of male a'dam), and later died at his hand when she succeeded in binding him when he accessed the True Power through his connection to cossref("Moridin"); and Aran'gar died when he attacked Graendal's hold at Natrin's Barrow. During his duel with Sammael, Rand encountered a mysterious wanderer, who turned out to be Moridin, who helped him. During the fighting, their streams of balefire collided, causing Rand's head to spin and both of them to lose coherency for a while. Afterwards, Rand had trouble seizing saidin due to the taint's effect on his mind. During his first fight with Semirhage, Rand had his hand burned away by her weave of Fire; Moridin has since been seen favoring his left hand, as if Rand's injury is somehow affecting him. Since the hand cannot be repaired, Rand has moved on without it—others compared it to the reaction one might have after losing a glove. Rand was captured for a brief period by Semirhage, after Shaidar Haran freed her from her captivity at Aes Sedai hands. She attempted to force him to choke Min to death, but Rand's connection to Moridin allowed him to access the True Power, and he used that connection to weave balefire and destroy Semirhage. Thereafter, Rand steeled himself to do what he must, without emotional influence, without distraction from feelings, until finally the emotions grew too much to handle—he finally Traveled to Dragonmount, standing upon his own grave in fulfillment of Prophecy, and contemplated his life, and all of his past lives, finally determining that life and creation were not worth it unless you could laugh and cry. He destroyed the male Choedan Kal, and seems to have blocked his madness somehow in the process. Nynaeve attempted to Heal his madness, but he is beyond her abilities. Rand's prophecies fulfilled grow: he has already been born on the slopes of Dragonmount of a Maiden, of the ancient blood but raised by the old; taken the Stone of Tear and drawn Callandor; and began conquering “under the forgotten symbol,” that of the Aes Sedai of the Age of Legends. The “spotless tower” (i.e., the White Tower) broke and bent knee to him&mdashthe Tower has broken, several Aes Sedai have sworn fealty to him and only him, and even the Amyrlin herself has agreed to work with him. He slayed “his people” (the Aiel) with the “sword of peace” and destroyed them “with the [Way of the] Leaf” (referring to his dividing the Aiel with news that they used to be a peacful, non-violent people). He has “wounds of madness” from Fain's dagger (and from the taint), and has led the Aiel spears “from the city, lost and forsaken” (Rhuidean). And of course, he has stood “on his own grave” and wept, referring to his scene at Dragonmount where he went from being “blind” to the reasons for life to “seeing” the reasons of life again. Some time ago, he used the Choedan Kal, the two great sa'angreal created during the War of the Shadow, to cleanse the Dark One's taint from saidin. He has created schools of sorts, more research universities, where some of the best inventors of the day have congregated, near Cairhien, Caemlyn, and Tear to develop new technology. Rand has also created the Asha'man, men who came for his “amnesty” for male channelers. With saidin cleansed, the Asha'man are now safe from the Dark One's taint. The Asha'man themselves are not free from the Dark One's influence, however; there are many Darkfriends among the Asha'man, including Mazrim Taim, the leader of the Black Tower. The Asha'man under Taim once turned on Rand, trying to kill him and worse, though Rand did not at that point know that they were acting with Taim's knowledge. Rand used to believe that emotionlessness was the key to surviving to do what he must do, but he now realizes he must instead accept what must be done, not letting it bother him but still feeling it. Rand is the salvation of the entire world, and as the prophecy states, he will save the world—and Break it again. Editor's note: there has been some speculation as to the origin of Rand's new sword. Some suggest that it is Justice, the sword of Artur Hawkwing. I submit that the dragons wrapped around the blade suggest a much earlier origin: the sword of Lews Therin Telamon himself.

  196. Haral Luhhan, tEotW, p. 17 [4]—Blacksmith of Emond's Field. Perrin was his apprentice before he left home. He is a very large man, which works well for work at the forge. His wife, Alsbet, is almost as large as he is, and nearly as strong. He approved of the new arrivals in Emond's Field, and even ventured into business partnerships with some of the newcomers. He is now fighting with Tam and the other men from the Two Rivers, and was the first to reach Perrin when he pulled himself out of Tel'aran'rhiod into the waking world without a gateway. See also Aybara, Perrin; Luhhan, Alsbet.

  199. Cilia Cole, tEotW, p. [5]—Young woman from Emond's Field. She insisted on being tested for the ability to channel, but Verin insisted she was too old to be a novice.
  200. Matrim (Mat) Cauthon, tEotW, p. 4 [6]—A young man from Emond's Field. He is ta'veren. Along with his good friends, Rand al'Thor and Perrin Aybara, he left home to escape the Trolloc attacks after Winternight. On the way to Tar Valon, he picked up a dagger from Shadar Logoth tainted with the evil that destroyed Aridhol, which he carried with him for a long time. He was separated from the dagger by Aes Sedai Healing, but doing so caused large gaps in his memory sequence. These gaps were filled and more when he passed through the twisted door to the land of the Eelfinn, where he was granted his three requests: a foxhead medallion that protects him from women's channeling, a way out of the land of the Eelfinn, and the memories of past lifetimes that were the gaps in his memory. Mat's ta'veren qualities manifest themselves particularly well with random events, such as dice games—he almost never loses a toss of the dice, even if the dice are weighted. He has found that battles are the ultimate form of gambling, and along with his newfound memories, he can win almost every battle he fights quite decisively. He has four sisters, including Eldrin and Bodewhin, who were 16 and 17, respectively, when Mat left Emond's Field. His father Abell is one of the best archers in the Two Rivers, probably in the World. Mat has gotten in the habit of carrying concealed knives under his clothes in case he is attacked—his collection would surprise anyone. In the Waste, he met a woman named Melindhra, a Maiden of the Spear from the Shaido Clan. However, she was not the Daughter of the Nine Moons, who Mat was destined to marry according to the Aelfinn; besides, she tried to kill him on orders from her master among the Darkfriends. Mat had to kill her to save his own skin, but regretted it deeply. He also has a scar along his neck from where the Eelfinn tried to hang him—which was also in accordance with what the Aelfinn told him, that he is “to die and live again.” He created an army called the Band of the Red Hand, after the army of King Aemon of old Manetheren, and served in a way as Rand's personal general—this worked well, since Mat seems to be a better general than even Davram Bashere, who has earned his reputation as one of the best commanders alive. Mat does not trust any Aes Sedai, at least not completely, and because of this he refuses to take his foxhead medallion off even to take a bath. Mat went to Ebou Dar to try to keep an eye on Elayne and Nynaeve and prevent them from getting themselves killed. While there, he was cornered by Queen Tylin, who gave him little choice but to become her lover, which he later described as the best game he had ever played. When the Sea Folk and the Seanchan did battle in the city, he made his escape, leaving Tylin tied up under the bed so it looked “official”—Tylin was found torn limb from limb, obviously by the gholam, which was no doubt sent to kill Mat. In the process of leaving, Mat also took several sul'dam and damane (who were subsequently freed from their collars), and even kidnapped Tuon, the Daughter of the Nine Moons herself. Mat traveled with Valan Luca's show to keep out of Seanchan sight for quite some time. Tuon has now completed Mat's unwitting marriage ceremony; he is now among the highest of the Seanchan ruling class, the First Prince of the Ravens, despite his insistence that he will fight the Seanchan during any battle if such battle is necessary. Tuon is (metaphorically) dead, in that she is now the Empress of Seanchan, Fortuona, though Mat still calls her Tuon, much to her dismay. He stubbornly refuses all Seanchan formality, which keeps Fortuona guessing and unsure what to make of him. Mat recently responded to Moiraine's letter to Thom rescuing her from the Eelfinn with the help of Thom and Noal. Mat has an excellent eye for horses, which he inherited from his father—Fortuona judges him to have a better eye than the Imperial stablemaster.

  201. Loise al'Vere, tEotW, p. [6]—One of five daughters of Marin and Bran al'Vere, the innkeepers of Emond's Field. She is fifteen years old, six years older than their youngest daughter Egwene. She likes climbing trees and swimming in the Winespring Water, even though most girls her age have outgrown those pastimes. See also al'Vere, Alene; al'Vere, Berowyn; al'Vere, Brandelwyn; al'Vere, Egwene; al'Vere, Elisa; al'Vere, Marin.
  202. Dag Coplin, tEotW, p. [6]—Old man from Emond's Field. His hair is gray, and is not washed all that often, if at all. His skin is very wrinkled with age. Egwene only calls him “Master Coplin” in public, to be polite—in her own head, he is simply Dag Coplin, with no further respect involved. Not to be confused with his grandson, who has the same name. See also Coplin, Dag.
  203. Alene al'Vere, tEotW, p. [7]—Second oldest of five daughters of Marin and Bran al'Vere of Emond's Field. She loves to read, and ignores Egwene unless Egwene is presently reading a book that she herself wants to read—in this case, she usually takes it and proclaims it to be much too “complex” for Egwene to understand. See also al'Vere, Berowyn; al'Vere, Brandelwyn; al'Vere, Egwene; al'Vere, Elisa; al'Vere, Loise; al'Vere, Marin.
  204. Jain Farstrider, tEotW, p. 43 [7]—Hero of legend. There is a book about him, The Travels of Jain Farstrider, that Mat intends to read but never has. The book is quite popular with his friends, including Elayne, Egwene, Rand, and Nynaeve. He is Malkieri. Jain Farstrider's real name is Jain Charin, also called Noal. He died in the Tower of Ghenjei, distracting the attacking Aelfinn just long enough for Mat and Thom to escape with Moiraine. He has since been bound to the Horn of Valere, and fights alongside the other Heroes. See Charin, Jain. See also Charin, Jain; Charin, Noal.
  205. Doral Barran, tEotW, p. 268 [7]—Wisdom of Emond's Field before Nynaeve. She switched Mat for cutting open a firework when he was young. See also al'Meara, Nynaeve.
  206. Nynaeve al'Meara, tEotW, p. 7 [7]—Young woman from Emond's Field, now an Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. She was the Wisdom of her village, the youngest such ever chosen in Emond's Field. She left when four of her villagers were taken away from the Two Rivers by Moiraine and Lan. While the group traveled away from her home and toward her new life, Nynaeve made several discoveries: she could channel the One Power, and had already done so without really knowing what she was doing; she developed feelings for Lan Mandragoran, Moiraine's Warder and the uncrowned king of the now dead nation Malkier; and she has a major role to play, as all of her younger friends in the group do, in the years to come. She is very strong in the One Power; only a select few who were alive during the Age of Legends could match her, as well as a few young women still being trained. When she arrived in Tar Valon, she was raised Accepted without any tenure as a novice, despite not being able to even sense the True Source unless angry, a result of her having to learn some minimal control of her ability without teaching. She was sent on a false mission by Liandrin on which she was almost leashed by the Seanchan as Egwene was. After she returned to the Tower, Siuan Sanche sent her on a mission to hunt down Liandrin and her fellow Black Sisters; while hunting them in Tanchico, she encountered Moghedien and managed to better her in a duel of the Power. Moghedien escaped, but two encounters later Nynaeve once again managed to get the better of her, leashing her with an a'dam in Tel'aran'rhiod. Nynaeve took Moghedien with her to seek out Rand and Rahvin while they were fighting each other, and at the last moment before Rahvin might have won, she nearly burned Rahvin to ash with a giant weave of fire that was most of what Moghedien could draw to produce it; the distraction was enough for Rand to regain control of himself and destroy Rahvin with balefire. Nynaeve then kept Moghedien under control with a modified a'dam in Salidar until Halima helped her escape. Nynaeve wished to become Aes Sedai for the sole purpose of Healing; she thinks the Tower meddles in the affairs of nations far too much, and wants no part of it. She is determined to Heal anything short of death, and has already managed to Heal gentling, as well as remove the effects of the taint from men's minds. Nynaeve felt bad when Moiraine died, because her first thought was not of her, but that now Lan was free from their bond. She was not told that Lan's bond had been passed to Myrelle at the moment of Moiraine's death. She and Lan are now married, and Lan's bond was transferred to her the moment she tracked down Myrelle. As Lan's wife, she is the Queen of Malkier; when Lan raises the Golden Crane and frees Malkier from the Blight, she will rule at his side. She now wears the ki'sain, an ornament traditionally worn by Malkieri wives, consisting of a dot on the forehead between the eyes—Lan did not tell her of this tradition, but when she found out, she immediately took it up. It is the one element of her appearance that never fades for one second when every other part changes faster than the eye can follow in Tel'aran'rhiod. Because she was the only person Rand felt he could trust to link with him and the Choedan Kal, he asked Nynaeve to assist him when he cleansed saidin. She now carries the ter'angreal she found in Ebou Dar nearly all the time, making her collection of jewelry rival that of Cadsuane. She is even rumored to leave much of this jewelry on even when sleeping. Nynaeve knew she could not prevent Lan from returning to the Blight to fight his one-man war, so she deposited him as far from Tarwin's Gap as possible while still remaining in the Borderlands, then alerted every surviving Malkieri she could find to Lan's mission. Rand was shocked when he met her recently with her hair loose and cut to the shoulders—she had worn her braid proudly.

  207. Bili Congar, tEotW, p. 34 [7]—An old man from Emond's Field. Perrin thinks that even old Bili would be better at knowing the right thing to do than he was, even if Bili was full of ale.
  208. Elisa al'Vere, tEotW, p. [8]—Jac's wife. See also al'Caar, Jac; al'Vere, Alene; al'Vere, Berowyn; al'Vere, Brandelwyn; al'Vere, Egwene; al'Vere, Elisa; al'Vere, Loise; al'Vere, Marin.

  210. Jillie Lewin, tEotW, p. [9]—Young woman from Emond's Field. She is 19, a year younger than Elisa al'Vere, and wears her hair in a black braid that extends below her waist.
  211. Wil al'Seen, tEotW, p. 311 [9]—Young man from Deven Ride, in the Two Rivers, who likes to flirt. He now is a leader among Perrin's Two Rivers recruits. He is among those who guard Perrin's tent from time to time. He is Perrin's distant cousin. He once planted a bucket of wet feathers so they would drop on Perrin. See also Rhea; Zeffar, Sharmad.

  215. Lem Thane, tEotW, p. 51 [10]—Horse-faced man from the Two Rivers. He has a gap in his front teeth from a fistfight with a wool merchant's guard long ago. He seems to like getting into fistfights.
  216. Bandry (Ban) Crawe, tEotW, p. 51 [10]—Man from the Two Rivers.
  217. Elam Dowtry, tEotW, p. 12 [10]—A young man from Emond's Field. He is as old as Perrin, and left home to see the world after he heard Perrin's stories.
  218. Dannil Lewin, tEotW, p. [12]—Young man from Emond's Field, now a leader of Perrin's soldiers from the Two Rivers. A bean-pole of a man with a thick mustache. He is Tell's brother. He also leads all of Perrin's troops when Tam is absent. See also al'Seen, Bandry; Lewin, Flann; Lewin, Tell.
  219. Brandelwyn (Bran) al'Vere, tEotW, p. 7 [12]—Innkeeper of the Winespring Inn and Mayor of Emond's Field. He is Egwene's father. He and his wife Marin have five daughters, of which Egwene is the youngest. Perrin thinks he would do well if made Lord of the Two Rivers, definitely better than Perrin himself. See also al'Vere, Alene; al'Vere, Berowyn; al'Vere, Egwene; al'Vere, Elisa; al'Vere, Loise; al'Vere, Marin.
  220. Natti Cauthon, tEotW, p. [12]—Abell's wife, Mat's mother. She and two of her daughters were arrested by the Whitecloaks as Darkfriends because of Fain's suggestions that Mat was a Darkfriend before Perrin led the residents of the Two Rivers to drive the Trollocs and Whitecloaks out. See also Cauthon, Abell; Cauthon, Bodewhin; Cauthon, Eldrin; Cauthon, Matrim.
  221. Bodewhin (Bode) Cauthon, tEotW, p. [12]—Mat's younger sister, age seventeen. She came with Verin and Alanna to become Aes Sedai. She has the spark inborn; she will channel whether she wants to or not. She is now a novice in the rebel Tower under Egwene. She is strong in Earth, and Egwene has her making objects out of cuendillar. She is plump-cheeked and pretty. She wears her hair in a dark braid, though Egwene suspects she did not have the Women's Circle's permission to do so—it does not matter anymore, however, as she is not in Emond's Field anymore. See also Cauthon, Abell; Cauthon, Eldrin; Cauthon, Matrim; Cauthon, Natti.
  222. Eldrin Cauthon, tEotW, p. [12]—Mat's sister. She is sixteen. She and her sister Bode were always anxious to tell on Mat when he was up to mischief. See also Cauthon, Abell; Cauthon, Bodewhin; Cauthon, Matrim; Cauthon, Natti.
  223. Master Cole, tEotW, p. [12]—Old man from Emond's Field. He is as old as the Wisdom, perhaps even older. Despite this, he still has a full head of hair, though it's white now.
  224. Cenn Buie, tEotW, p. 6 [13]—Knarled man from Emond's Field with a raspy voice. He is the local thatcher, and sits on the Village Council. He always produced conflict with others, especially the Women's Circle. Rand once used his name as a flag so Nynaeve would agree to speak to him despite his disguise as a beggar. Nynaeve describes him as “old as rain” and as having “as much sense as a pile of rocks.” She was exasperated by him, probably on an hourly basis. Perrin worried that he would sieze power in the Two Rivers if Perrin did not return to his unwanted position as Lord of the Two Rivers.
  225. Tamlin (Tam) al'Thor, tEotW, p. 2 [13]—Rand's adoptive father. He is a blocky man with broad shoulders, and all his hair is now gray, though it used to be deep black when Rand was a boy. He has a calm manner. He taught Rand about the Flame and the Void, a trick he uses to concentrate and to win archery competitions; Rand found that it is the way he can gain access to saidin. Tam is not actually Rand's biological father; he found Rand as a newborn on the slopes of Dragonmount and took him home with him since Rand's mother was dead. He was at Dragonmount as part of the Aiel War, which he left home to participate in when he was young. He became an officer in the Illianer army, and even achieved Blademaster status, acquiring a heron-mark sword. In fact, Demetre Marcolin served under him when he was a Second Captain in the Companions. He married a woman from Caemlyn, Kari, who he met while stationed there. When the Aiel War started, he fought Aiel all the way to Tar Valon and the Battle of the Shining Walls, where he found Rand on the mountain. Tam and Kari raised Rand as their own son. Tam always won the archery competitions (or came in second to Abell Cauthon), and passed his archery skills on to Rand. He also taught Aram how to use his sword. Tam had no idea that the child he was raising was the Dragon Reborn. He is Perrin's second-in-command of the troops from the Two Rivers, and was promoted to Lord of the Two Rivers by Perrin over Tam's own vigorous objections. See also al'Thor, Kari; al'Thor, Rand.
  226. Master al'Dai, tEotW, p. [14]—Lean old man from Emond's Field with wispy white hair. As old or older than Master Cole, he is unable to walk without the assistance of a cane. He is Bili al'Dai's grandfather. Despite his advanced years, his eyes remain clear and sharp, as does his mind. He is also quite quick with the shears, almost as fast as Tam al'Thor and faster than everyone else. See also al'Dai, Bili.
  227. Bili al'Dai, tEotW, p. [14]—Oldest of the people who join Perrin on his strike to free the Emond's Fielders who are being held prisoner by the Children of the Light (except for Tam and Abell). See also al'Dai, Bili; al'Dai, Hu.
  228. Semirhage, tEotW, p. [15]—One of the Forsaken. During the Age of Legends, she was one of the best Healers ever known. She was called to all corners of the world to Heal people that others thought beyond help. However, she was sadistic; she exacted a price in the form of pain from her subjects in return for her Healing services. Most thought the pain or anguish she exacted from them was a small price to pay for being alive, but eventually the Hall of Servants found out about her practices and gave her the choice of being either severed or bound with the Power, never again to know her “pleasures.” She chose instead to pledge for the Dark One, and created one of the most oppressive and pain-filled areas of Shadow control during the entire War of Power. She became an expert at sadism and torture; she considers her greatest achievement to be a weave which removes the victim's blood and replaces it, instantaneously, with another liquid that causes every nerve in the body to fire with pain simultaneously—the victims typically survived about an hour. After being freed from the Bore, Semirhage went in service to the Dark One by extracting information from captured Borderlanders and Aes Sedai. She also sent the Trollocs to the Stone of Tear to battle those that Sammael sent. She was as tall as most men, and wore black most of the time—perhaps because Lanfear always wore white. It is often joked (or used to be, when the Forsaken were still bound) that when it rained during the daylight that the Dark One was beating her. According to Lews Therin's memories, Semirhage always enjoyed a challenge. She had an uneasy alliance with Mesaana and Demandred before she was captured by Rand after her unsuccessful attempt to capture him. She had been posing as Anath Dorje, Tuon's Truthspeaker. It is a virtual certainty that she murdered the previous Truthspeaker in order to gain the office. She was eventually given a Domination Band by Shaidar Haran, and used it to capture Rand. She Compelled Elza Penfell, who was a Darkfriend, to help her control him by wearing the other bracelet. She attempted to force Rand to kill Min by choking her to death—she would have succeeded, but Rand's connection to Moridin let him seize the True Power, which Rand used to kill Semirhage and Elza with balefire. Cyndane thinks Semirhage might be able to explain more about what the Dark One did to Slayer's souls, had she been alive. See also Dorje, Anath.
  229. Lanfear, tEotW, p. 539 [15]—One of the Forsaken. Unlike the rest of the Forsaken, she chose her name for herself, which means “Daughter of the Night” in the Old Tongue. She was born Mierin Eronaile, and was very strong in the One Power. She worked at the Collam Daan, the primary facility for research into the One Power. Her final discovery there was what she thought was a new source for the One Power, one that could be harnessed by men and women alike—this source turned out to be the emissions through a thin spot in the Pattern from the Dark One's prison. She and another Aes Sedai named Beidomon bored into the prison, creating what is now referred to as simply the Bore, allowing the Dark One to touch the world again and leading to the War of the Shadow. Around this time, Mierin formed a relationship with Lews Therin Telamon, who headed the forces of the Light against the Shadow and was the most powerful man she had found. Lews Therin broke off the relationship when he found that she only wanted him for his power and authority and the possibility of power for herself through him. Mierin never let go of him, and when he later met and married Ilyena Moerelle, she tried to disrupt the wedding ceremony as well as split the two apart by any means. Eventually, she went to Shayol Ghul to dedicate her soul to the Shadow, likely just to get back at Lews Therin for leaving her. She declared as her territory the World of Dreams, Tel'aran'rhiod, using it to ends now unknown. She transferred her obsessive love intact to Lews Therin's soul's new body, Rand al'Thor, after being freed from the Bore. She first appeared to him as a young woman named Selene, but disguised her appearance as a slightly less beautiful (but still stunning) woman. Almost a year later, Lanfear found that Rand had been “unfaithful” to her, and she tried to kill him. Before she could, she was pushed through the twisted stone doorway ter'angreal leading to the land of the Eelfinn by Moiraine, becoming trapped. She has since been reincarnated as Cyndane and fitted with a cour'souvra, a Mind Trap, held by Moridin. The Eelfinn feasted on her ability to channel, or at least the pain and sense of loss she felt while they took it from her; she is not as strong as she used to be, but still stronger than Graendal. According to Moiraine, Lanfear died because the Eelfinn drained her strength in the Power too quickly. According to Moridin, it was Moridin himself who killed Lanfear, freeing her from the Eelfinn's grasp and allowing the Dark One to reincarnate her. He killed both to save her and to punish her for her failures. See also Cyndane; Damodred, Moiraine; Eronaile, Mierin; Moonhunter; Selene; Shaogi, Keille; Telamon, Lews Therin.

    Wheel of Time icon
  230. Bela, tEotW, p. 2—Tam al'Thor's old packhorse. She is short, shaggy, and quite docile. Egwene rode her out of Emond's Field when she left with Moiraine and Lan. Rand suggested her as a way to take Egwene with them. She was later used by Siuan to leave Tar Valon on their way to Salidar, and now Olver rides her. Olver does not think Bela to be a bad horse, but he prefers Wind, his racehorse. Bela is a stronger and fitter horse than she seems at first glance.
  231. Wit Congar, tEotW, p. 6—Citizen of Emond's Field. Bran believes that he would tell tales to the Whitecloaks about Perrin if they started asking. See also Congar, Daise.
  232. Daise Congar, tEotW, p. 7—Wisdom of Emond's Field after Nynaeve left to accompany Rand, Mat, and Perrin. She is as tall as most men, and wider. See also Congar, Wit.
  233. Jon Thane, tEotW, p. 8—Miller of Emond's Field. His mill is at the far east side of the city. When Nynaeve first became Wisdom, he treated her as most would: as a young woman, a girl really, who was new to her station and had not yet earned his respect. Nynaeve barely kept herself from boxing his ears. See also Thane, Berin; Thane, Kari; Thane, Lem.
  234. Mistress al'Donel, tEotW, p. 10—Woman from Emond's Field. She once demanded that Bran al'Vere fix the problem that no storks were nesting on the rooftops in the spring. He honestly did not know what she would have had him do. She appears in Nynaeve's test for the shawl, though she is fending off Shadowspawn during that test.
  235. Shepherd of the Night, tEotW, p. 12—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  236. Ishamael, tEotW, p. 12—One of the Forsaken. He was the most powerful of the Forsaken, and during the Age of Legends he was a prominent philosopher and theologian named Elan Morin Tedronai. He was never really bound inside the Bore, and led the hidden forces of the Shadow for the three thousand odd years from the end of the War of the Shadow to the present. He took credit for such things as convincing the then insane Lews Therin Telamon to kill everyone he loved, pursuading the dying Artur Hawkwing not to accept the Aes Sedai Healing that might have saved his life, sending the Trollocs out of the Great Blight during the Trolloc Wars, and many other events in history that turned out poorly. When the rest of the Forsaken were freed, Ishamael kept them away from each other's throats. He confronted Rand at the Eye of the World, where he was severed from the Dark One's bonds; he confronted him again at Falme where Rand put his sword through him and melted it, but not after Ishamael gave Rand a wound that he has not been able to recover from yet; and he confronted Rand in the Stone of Tear after he took Callandor. Rand killed Ishamael after beating him sore by plunging Callandor into his heart. His body rotted quickly, but it was proof that Ba'alzamon, which he called himself to the public, was a human being, and not the Dark One. Ishamael has been resurrected in the person of the mysterious Nae'blis, Moridin. See also Ba'alzamon; Betrayer of Hope; Moridin; Shai'tan; Tedronai, Elan Morin.
  237. Aginor, tEotW, p. 12—One of the Forsaken. During the Age of Legends, he was one of the foremost biologists of his time, specializing in genetics. He went over to the Shadow because only there could he do all of the experiments he wanted to. He was the one who created the Trollocs, Dragkhar, gholam, Darkhounds, and other Shadowspawn. Some of the other Forsaken think he was insane, for only someone insane would create some of the creatures he did. He was the second one to be released from the sealing on the Bore, after Balthamel. He was trapped close to the surface of the Bore, so he was not shielded from the passing of time very effectively; he emerged as a very old man, so old that his face was wrinkled so that one could barely make out his features anymore. He was killed by Rand at the Eye of the World. Unbeknownst to almost everyone (including the Forsaken), Aginor was reincarnated in the body of a Borderlander man and given the new name Osan'gar. Osan'gar masqueraded as Corlan Dashiva, one of the Asha'man, until he was killed at the cleansing of saidin by Elza Penfell and her circle. One of Aginor's creations was the zomara, androgynous not-quite-human servants; they are almost useless for any other task. Aran'gar described them as one of Aginor's “less inspired creations.” The only Shadowspawn that Aginor created which could pass through a Traveling gateway were gholam; he was smart enough to only make a few of them. See also Balthamel; Dashiva, Corlan; Osan'gar.
  238. Shadowman, tEotW, p. 12—Boogeyman of the Wheel of Time.
  239. Marin al'Vere, tEotW, p. 14—Egwene's mother. She is an important figure in the Women's Circle in Emond's Field; she is used to getting her way with other people. Mat recalls that she used to make very good pies, pies which he used to filch. Her gaze makes even Cenn Buie look like a child when under it. See also al'Vere, Alene; al'Vere, Berowyn; al'Vere, Brandelwyn; al'Vere, Egwene; al'Vere, Elisa; al'Vere, Loise.

    Chapter 2: Strangers

  240. Scratch, tEotW, p. 16—Cat native to the Winespring Inn in Emond's Field. She is usually found asleep atop a shelf.
  241. Adan al'Caar, tEotW, p. 18—Lewin's greatfather. He appears in steps four, five, and six of Rand's viewings. Adan was not only the grandfather of the man who headed the group that broke from the Aiel to form what are now called the Aiel, but also was the leader of the Aiel when some of them decided their path was incorrect and split off to form a new band of people that did not serve the Aes Sedai, instead carrying their own possessions in the wagons. These people are now called the Tuatha'an, the Traveling People, and are the only people in the world that still follow the Way of the Leaf. See also Elwin; Jaren; Jonai; Lewin; Rhea; Siedre; Sorelle.
  242. Dag Coplin, tEotW, p. 18—One of the Coplins who went with Lord Luc and Wit Congar to tell the Whitecloaks that Emond's Field was closed to them. See also Coplin, Darl; Coplin, Ewal; Coplin, Hari.
  243. Alsbet Luhhan, tEotW, p. 18—Wife of Haral, the blacksmith of Emond's Field. She is almost as large as her husband, which is quite big. See also Luhhan, Haral.
  244. Rowan Hurn, tEotW, p. 21—Former member of the Village Council of Emond's Field. He now travels with Perrin and Faile. Perrin sent him to make sure Galad released his hostages as they agreed.

    Chapter 3: The Peddler

    Dragon's Fang icon
  248. Padan Fain, tEotW, p. 27—Former peddler that frequently came to Emond's Field. A Darkfriend, he was given orders to locate the Dragon Reborn and narrowed the list of candidates to three boys in Emond's Field. While persuing them, he encountered the spirit of Mordeth in Aridhol, now called Shadar Logoth. Mordeth attempted to consume Fain's soul, but instead the two souls merged, producing something more evil than either of them alone. Fain no longer takes his orders from the Shadow; he has his own evil agenda. It is said, “The look of the Eyeless is fear,” from observing that a Myrddraal's look causes fear in the hearts of men. Fain's look has that effect on Myrddraal—Fades feel the same fear of Fain as men feel from a Fade. Fain is also called Ordeith, a name he adopted to become a Whitecloak officer. He is perhaps the most evil man alive. He later served as advisor to Toram Riatin, one of the Cairhienin nobles in rebellion to Rand. Rand has a bounty of 100,000 gold crowns on his head—Fain killed Rand's friends because they were his friends, he pillaged his homeland because it was his homeland, and Rand intends to see him dead for it. Rand still bears the wound that Fain's dagger gave him; the evil from Fain's dagger fighting the evil from Ishamael's staff gave Rand the idea he used to cleanse saidin. Fain is now in the Great Blight, killing Shadowspawn for the sheer pleasure of it and waiting for Rand to arrive so he can kill him. He can kill a Myrddraal simply by touching it with the Mashadar-like mist that exudes from him, and he can kill worms with ease. See also Mashadar; Mordeth; Mordeth, Jeraal; Ordeith; Shaisam.

  250. Thomdril (Thom) Merrilin, tEotW, p. 40—Gleeman who came to Emond's Field on Winternight just before the Trollocs came. He is quite the ladies' man. Thom is very good at juggling, sleight-of-hand, and all kinds of other tricks—Rodel Ituralde once saw him performing at the Royal Court, and to say that he was impressed was to say that the sun is hot. He also carries several concealed knives up his sleeves, in his boots, and in various other locations on his body; this practice seems to have spread from Thom to Mat, Min, and Faile. Thom was originally a bard in Queen Morgase's Royal Court, and for a time after her husband Taringail Damodred died, he was the Queen's lover. During his run from a Fade at Shadar Logoth, he was injured, and now walks with a limp because of it. Thom is getting old, such that he is starting to realize that he cannot do the backflips and other stunts he used to do. He accompanied Elayne and Nynaeve on their travels as per Moiraine's request, despite the fact that he has never felt comfortable around Aes Sedai since his nephew, Owyn, was gentled by the Red Ajah. Thom is an expert in the Game of Houses; in fact, his girlfried Dena was killed by Cairhienin soldiers because they thought he was trying to play Daes Daemar against the Royal House. Thom received a letter from Moiraine after her battle with Lanfear stating that she was still alive in the land of the Eelfinn. He, Mat, and Noal managed to rescue her, alive though weakened in the One Power. He and Moiraine are now husband and wife. He is extremely good at reading people. See also Damodred, Moiraine; Dena; Merrilin, Owyn; Trakand, Morgase.
  251. Artur Paendrag Tanreall, tEotW, p. 43—Hero of Legend who conquered much of the known world about a thousand years ago. He was born in Shandalle, in what is now Cairhien. During and after his conquest of the known world, he became known as Artur Hawkwing. He was perhaps the most strongly ta'veren man in history besides Lews Therin Telamon and Rand al'Thor. His armies put down those of Guaire Amalasan, a false Dragon, and he even sent troops across the Aryth Ocean under his son, Luthair Paendrag Mondwhin, in hopes of conquering new lands there. All contact with these armies ended with Hawkwing's death, which set off the War of the Hundred Years. The descendants of the armies under Luthair have now returned to reclaim the lands of Hawkwing's empire in the Old World—they now call themselves the Seanchan. According to Mat's memories, he was difficult to get along with even before the War of the Hundred Years began. His sign was a golden hawk in flight. See also Amalasan, Guaire; Hawkwing, Artur; Ishamael; Meraighdin, Bonwhin; Paendrag Mondwhin, Luthair.
  252. Green Man, tEotW, p. 43—Character in one of Thom's stories. According to Legend, he guards Avendesora, the Tree of Life, as well as the Eye of the World. See Someshta.
  253. Anla, tEotW, p. 43—Elsbet's sister. She served as her advisor, and there is even a separate story that Thom is fond of telling that is all about her: “Anla the Wise Councilor.” Anla's name decorates the walls of the school in Rand's vision of the future, as presented by the Dark One. Thom Merrilin's name does as well. Editor's note: It has been speculated that Anla is Ann Landers, the councilor part coming from her popular advice column.
  254. Jaem, tEotW, p. 43—Giant-slayer from one of Thom's stories. He is also featured in a song, “Jaem's Folly,” that is popular among Two Rivers folk.
  255. Susa, tEotW, p. 43—Slight, fluttery girl from Emond's Field. She had always been excitable. She comes with Verin and Alanna to become Aes Sedai.
  256. Mara, tEotW, p. 43—A woman that Siuan Sanche knew as a child. Siuan adopts her name to use while traveling so as not to reveal her true identity. See Sanche, Siuan. See also Sanche, Siuan.
  257. Lenn, tEotW, p. 43—According to Lan, a man who flew to the moon. See also Salya.
  258. Salya, tEotW, p. 43—Daughter of Lenn in another of Thom Merrilin's gleeman tales. She walked among the stars in the story, which precedes the Age of Legends. See also Lenn.
  259. Mosk, tEotW, p. 43—A man who allegedly fought with spears of fire in the Age prior to the Age of Legends. He and and his companion Merk were also said to be giants. Their story is the oldest story Thom knows, and he knows quite well that it is greatly exaggerated. Editor's note: it has been speculated that Mosk is a through-the-generations transliteration of Moscow, and the giant with whom “he” fought was America. See also Merk.
  260. Alsbet, tEotW, p. 44—Queen of All in several of Thom Merrilin's stories. Her story predates the Age of Legends.
  261. Materese, tEotW, p. 44—The Healer, Mother of the Wondrous Ind in one of Thom's stories. Her story predates the Age of Legends.
  262. Karil, tEotW, p. 44—Goodwife in one of Thom's stories. In this story, she cured her husband of snoring.
  263. Darith, tEotW, p. 44—King in one of Thom's stories.

    Chapter 5: Winternight

    Dead Tree icon
  264. Oren Dautry, tEotW, p. 57—Nearest neighbor to the al'Thor farm. He is lean and tall, and a shameless borrower. Tam thought he may have some livestock he was willing to part with after the attack on Winternight. Oren has since joined Tam and the others to help Perrin.
  265. Narg, tEotW, p. 63—Trolloc among those who attacked Tam and Rand on their farm. He stayed back and played dead when the other Trollocs left the farm—“Narg stay. Narg smart.” He speaks English, albeit poorly, and talked to Rand for a short time before Rand killed him with Tam's sword.

    Chapter 6: The Westwood

    Heron-mark Sword icon
  266. Kari al'Thor, tEotW, p. 68—Rand's mother. Kari was not actually his biological mother; Rand's real mother was a Maiden of the Spear who bore him on Dragonmount where he was found by Kari's husband, Tam. Kari met Tam while he was stationed in Caemlyn during his military duties, and the two got married. They returned to Tam's home, Emond's Field, with the child he found on the mountain at the end of the Aiel War, which they named Rand. Kari died when Rand was about five years old; she was the only mother Rand ever knew, and all he remembers of her was her soft touch. See also al'Thor, Rand; al'Thor, Tamlin.
  267. Avendesora, tEotW, p. 73—The Legendary Tree of Life. It is the last surviving Chora tree, and is located in Rhuidean. The Tree was severely damaged when Rand and Asmodean battled over control of the ter'angreal statue and destroyed the shielding on Rhuidean, but it is still alive and will send out shoots again. A cutling of the Tree was given to the people of Cairhien as a sign of goodwill from the Aiel over 500 years ago. That Tree, Avendoraldera, grew in the center of the city of Cairhien until King Laman Damodred cut it down to make a throne out of the wood. Laman's Sin (as it is now called) brought four Aiel clans over the Spine of the World to kill Laman for killing the Tree. See also Avendoraldera; Damodred, Laman.
  268. Avendoraldera, tEotW, p. 73—A chora tree, cut from Avendesora, the legendary Tree of Life, which was given as a gift to the people of Cairhien from the Aiel. The Cairhienin never knew exactly why the Aiel gave them such a gift, and almost five hundred years later it was almost forgotten that it was a gift from them. The tree, which grew in the center of the city of Cairhien, was cut down by King Laman Damodred twenty years ago, which precipitated the Aiel War. Four clans of the Aiel crossed the Dragonwall under the leadership of Janduin, Rand's father and chief of the Taardad Aiel, to punish Laman for his sin. The deep respect the Aiel held for the Cairhienin, as well as the passage through the Waste they were allowed, was terminated after Laman's Sin—the Aiel now refer to all Cairhienin as “treekillers,” and think nothing of killing or mistreating them. See also Avendesora; Damodred, Laman.

  269. Berin Thane, tEotW, p. 77—Brother of Jon Thane, the miller in Emond's Field. He is now one of Perrin's scouts. Perrin recently found him asleep at his post. See also Cauthon, Abell; Thane, Jon; Thane, Kari; Thane, Lem.
  270. Abell Cauthon, tEotW, p. 77—Mat's father. He and his wife Natti lived in Emond's Field with their two unmarried daughters Eldrin and Bodewhin until Abell left with Perrin. They have two other daughters. Abell is excellent with a bow and arrow, and is in general a really nice guy; Mat does not know of anyone that dislikes him. His remaining children are about the age where they start to leave home—twenty, seventeen, and sixteen for Mat, Bode, and Eldrin, respectively. He is one of the best judges of horses around, and passed some of his knowledge on to his son. He serves as a subcommander under Bashere in the battle for Andor and Cairhien. Mat thinks there is no one who is as honest as he. See also Cauthon, Bodewhin; Cauthon, Eldrin; Cauthon, Matrim; Cauthon, Natti.
  271. Mistress Calder, tEotW, p. 77—Owner of one of the houses that survived Winternight in Emond's Field.

  276. Aemon al Caar al Thorin, tEotW, p. 110—King of Manetheren during the Trolloc Wars. He died trying to save his city, and the city died shortly thereafter. The site of this battle was called Aemon's Field, which is where the present-day city of Emond's Field is located. Aemon's last names still exist in Emond's Field: the al'Caars and the al'Thors still live there. See also al Thorin al Toren, Caar; al Toren al Ban, Thorin; ay Ellan ay Carlan, Eldrene.

  280. Ba'alzamon, tEotW, p. 111—Name used by Ishamael during the long years he was only half-imprisoned in the Bore. It means “Heart of the Dark” in the Old Tongue. After inadvertantly invading his dreams, Rand recognizes them as being the same as Ishamael's dreams, and thus connects Moridin with Ishamael's reincarnation. See Ishamael; Shai'tan. See also Ishamael; Moridin; Shai'tan.

She does not realize that the woman Moiraine was referring to was Nynaeve. See also Ayellan, Lara; Thane, Berin; Thane, Jon; Thane, Lem.
  287. Lara Ayellan, tEotW, p. 153 (163)—One of Egwene's friends. Egwene asked Moiraine if she can channel when Moiraine said there was another woman in her village who could do so. She does not realize that the woman Moiraine was referring to was Nynaeve. See also Thane, Kari.

  292. Elmindreda (Min) Farshaw, tEotW, p. 162—A young woman from Baerlon. She is lithe and slight of build, and keeps her dark hair in short ringlets. She has dark, deep, worried-looking eyes. She has a special ability that few besides herself know about: she sees images and auras around people, especially around Aes Sedai, Warders, and Asha'man, that foretell their futures. Min does not always know what these viewings mean, but when she does, the viewings will happen; it is only a question of how and when. Min was fascinated by the number of images she saw around Rand, especially the one she saw that included herself: he was destined to fall in love with three different women, one of which was herself. She usually dressed in attire reserved for men; this habit was picked up when growing up with her father, who was a miner. However, once she started to develop feelings for Rand, she began to wear more traditionally feminine attire—still coat and trousers, but cut to emphasize female characteristics. Min was in Tar Valon helping Siuan with her viewings' information when Siuan was deposed, and it was Min that freed Siuan and Leane from the dungeon. She accompanied the two former leaders of the Aes Sedai to Salidar; once there, she left for Caemlyn with Salidar's embassy to Rand. Once in Caemlyn, she brought information to Rand about the embassy there, and its intentions. She had only had one viewing that she thought ever failed, which concerned Moiraine: since Moiraine was believed dead, she hoped that her viewings might be wrong at least once in a while. All hope of this was dashed when Moiraine was rescued by Mat, however. Min is one of only three women that can rightfully call herself a lover to the Dragon Reborn, and she is now bonded to Rand via a Warder bond that she shares with the other two, Aviendha and Elayne. She is fond of reading books by the late Herid Fel, a philosopher who worked in Rand's school of thought and was killed by a gholam or Slayer, presumably because he had stumbled upon information crucial to the defeat of the Shadow. She had a viewing of Elayne just before the door closed that Elayne would become pregnant with twins; she told half the palace before Elayne herself knew.… When Rand was collared briefly by Semirhage, she forced Rand to strangle Min—she nearly died until Rand siezed the True Power and destroyed Semirhage with balefire. She still has nightmares about the incident. Min has been studying Fel's books, thinking that they hold the key to winning the Last Battle. She knows she cannot fight herself, nor contribute directly in any other way, but she vows to solve the mystery of how to seal the Dark One away.

  296. Logain Ablar, tEotW, p. 167—False Dragon who created war in Ghealdan and surrounding nations before being captured and gentled by the Red Ajah. He got loose during the chaos surrounding the deposing of Siuan Sanche, and eventually was escorted out of Tar Valon by Siuan and her traveling companions. Before he was gentled, he was of considerable strength, and attracted quite a following of loyal soldiers. Min still has viewings of him with a halo over his head, which she thinks indicates that he will become a figure of great power sometime in the future. Logain later came forward with information that indicated that the Red Ajah actually put him up to declaring himself the Dragon Reborn, most likely with the pretext that bringing down a false Dragon would bring more glory than gentling a simple man who could channel. Logain was eventually Healed by Nynaeve, and was set free by Egwene to do as he pleased. He chose to go to the Black Tower, leading a part of the Asha'man that seemed to be discontent with Taim's leadership. When Aes Sedai came to the Black Tower to attempted to capture the Asha'man (not realizing their numbers), Logain bonded two sisters to him as “wives” using the “wife bond” that the Asha'man developed, Toveine Gazal of the Red Ajah and Gabrelle of the Brown Ajah. He has curly black hair and broad shoulders. Logain was actually a minor Ghealdanin noble before his titles were stripped away when he declared himself the Dragon Reborn. He traveled with the real Dragon Reborn, Rand al'Thor, for some time before returning to the Black Tower. Taim and his cronies have captured Logain, and have been trying for some time to Turn him to the Shadow against his will.

  300. Guaire Amalasan, tEotW, p. 171—False Dragon of centuries past, from Free Years 939-943. He started the War of the Second Dragon and conquered much of the world between the Aiel Waste and the Aryth Ocean before a young king named Artur Paendrag Tanreall rose to overwhelming prominence and power. Six Aes Sedai once attempted to capture him by themselves—he killed one of them and stilled two more. It took a full circle of thirteen to finally capture him, and during his trial his followers beseiged Tar Valon and tried to free him, getting as far as the White Tower itself before being turned back. His seige of Far Madding lasted only three weeks, and ended savagely. See also Dragon, The; Dragon Reborn; Hawkwing, Artur; Paendrag Tanreall, Artur.
  301. Raolin Darksbane, tEotW, p. 171—False Dragon who declared himself from 335-336 years after the Breaking of the World.

  303. Sara, tEotW, p. 175—Cook in the Stag and Lion in Baerlon. She threatened to quit when Master Fitch relayed people's complaints about the rats her cat was apparently leaving all over the inn; in reality these rats had their backs broken by Ba'alzamon.

  305. Dain Bornhald, tEotW, p. 188—Son of Geofram Bornhald. He has dark eyes. He gained command of his own troops for a time under Eamon Valda. He hated Perrin, since he thought he had a hand in killing his father. After being chased from the Two Rivers, he took sides with Galad against Commander, Eamon Valda. When Perrin was found not guilty, it was Bornhald who saved his life when Jaret Byar tried to stab Perrin in the back. He has been getting more and more unpredictable and fond of brandy since then.

  310. Gaidal Cain, tEotW, p. 205—Hero of Legend bound to the Horn of Valere. He is a swordsman, and is always linked to Birgitte in the stories. Unlike his depiction in the stories (which say he is as handsome as Birgitte is beautiful), Gaidal Cain is one of the ugliest men that Nynaeve has ever seen. Just being around him made Nynaeve uncomfortable. He and Birgitte are no longer tied to each other thanks to Moghedien's tearing Birgitte away from Tel'aran'rhiod, and she fears she will never meet Gaidal Cain again. However, Min's viewings of Birgitte indicate that she has spent and will spend lifetimes with the same man—though in some versions he is much older than she, and in others he is much younger—so it appears she will find her lover again. According to Birgitte, Gaidal always liked rain. Before being torn out, Birgitte had not seen Gaidal Cain for some time, indicating he has been spun out and inhabits the body of a young boy somewhere. Birgitte currently does not remember him at all, though she feels as though she should remember someone by that name. See also Birgitte.

  315. Mordeth, tEotW, p. 237—Man who became a counsellor in Aridhol during the Trolloc Wars. He advised that to defeat the Shadow, Aridhol must be harder than the Shadow, less trusting, more cruel. Slowly it became so, until finally the city was, if not darker than the Shadow, as dark. The city finally turned on itself, consumed itself, tainting every grain of sand, every rock, every sip of water with its hatred. Mordeth's soul remained in the city, now called Shadar Logoth (“Where the Shadow Waits”) for millenia—he could not leave the city unless he accompanied a person to the city walls or had them carry something from the city to the outside world. Strangely enough, both of these things happened at the same time, when Mat Cauthon carried the ruby-handled dagger from the city while Padan Fain accompanied Mordeth out of the city at about the same time. Mordeth attempted to consume Fain's soul while the dagger tried to consume Mat's. In Fain's case, the attempt to consume his soul was not completely successful—instead, the two souls merged to create something more evil than either Mordeth or Fain alone. Fain now feels incomplete without the tainted dagger that was removed from the city. See also Fain, Padan; Mashadar; Mayel, Balwen; Mordeth, Jeraal; Ordeith; Shaisam.
  316. King Balwen Mayel, tEotW, p. 244—King of Aridhol before its collapse. During his reign, a man named Mordeth came to be his advisor.

She was right—he did. He became one of Egeanin's so'jhin. When Egeanin captured his ship, he was trying to drop the male a'dam in the ocean. The two became involved in a romance (she purchased him so they could stay together), which no one else seemed to understand—anyone who talks to either of them seems to find them impossible to get along with. He is now Leilwin's husband and used to be so'jhin until they fled the Seanchan provinces. Mat describes him as “not to bad a guy” except when he is around Leilwin. Since he is always around her, Mat considers him unmanageable. He knew where the Tower of Ghenjei was, and led Mat to it. He has thick, roughened fingers. Nynaeve still has not forgiven him for letting his ship be captured by Egeanin, which is how Semirhage acquired the Domination Band Nynaeve had ordered Domon to drop into the ocean.

    Chapter 23: Wolfbrother

    Wolf icon
  323. Dapple, tEotW, p. 286—One of the wolves. She was part of the pack that was near Elyas when Perrin learned he could talk to wolves. Her fur fades through a dozen shades of gray. She was the alpha female, the leader of her pack. She and her pack were agitated by the Whitecloaks under Geofram Bornhald.
  324. Burn, tEotW, p. 286—Wolf that Elyas knows. He is a grizzled fighter.
  325. Hopper, tEotW, p. 286—One of the wolves. Hopper died in a Whitecloak attack in real life, but he lived on in the World of Dreams, Tel'aran'rhiod. He was usually the first (and often the only) wolf that found Perrin there. Perrin thinks he would laugh as hard as a wolf could laugh at the title “Wolf King.” While Faile was missing, Perrin entered the World of Dreams—what he calls the Wolf Dream—and tried to kill Hopper. Hopper forgave him, of course, and later tried to teach Perrin how to control himself in the Dream. Hopper died, in the World of Dreams and thus forever, protecting Perrin from Slayer.
  326. Wind, tEotW, p. 286—One of the wolves. He was part of Dapple's pack, the one that was with Elyas when he first encountered Perrin. He and the rest of his pack were agitated by the Whitecloaks under Geofram Bornhald.

  327. Coramoor, tEotW, p. 300—According to the Sea Folk's Jendai Prophecy, the man who is destined to bring them out of their long wandering in the sea. He is the same man who is the fulfillment of just about every other prophecy known as well, Rand al'Thor. See also al'Thor, Rand; Car'a'carn; Chosen One; Dragon, The; Dragon Reborn; He Who Comes With the Dawn.

  328. Raen, tEotW, p. 310—Leader of the group of Tinkers who visited the Two Rivers, the same group that Perrin and Egwene encountered on their way out of Emond's Field. He is Aram's father, and Ila's husband. Perrin remembers with remorse the look on Raen's face when Aram left him to take up the sword with Perrin and his followers. He and Ila tend to the wounded a the Battle of Merrilor; both of them seem to have aged a decade in the last year. See also Aram; Ila.
  329. Ila, tEotW, p. 311—Wife of Raen, mother of Aram. A plump woman, gray-haired but not wrinkled. She is a head taller than her husband. She and Raen tend to the wounded at the Battle of Merrilor; both of them seem to have aged a decade in the last year. See also Aram; Raen.
  330. Aram, tEotW, p. 311—Former Tuatha'an who gave up the Way of the Leaf to learn the sword when the Trollocs killed his mother. He learned from Tam al'Thor, Rand's father and a Blademaster, and picked it up extremely fast. He served as Perrin's personal bodyguard until shortly before his death. Aram slowly grew attached to The Prophet, who finally convinced Aram that Perrin's eyes were yellow because he was Shadowspawn. Aram attempted to kill Perrin, but instead died himself in the attempt. He is Raen and Ila's grandson. See also al'Thor, Tamlin; Aybara, Perrin; Ila; Prophet of the Dragon, The; Raen.
  331. Leafblighter, tEotW, p. 316—Aiel name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  332. Sightburner, tEotW, p. 316—Aiel name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  333. He Who Comes With the Dawn, tEotW, p. 316—According to the Aiel's Prophecy of Rhuidean, the man who will unite the clans of the Aiel and bring them out of the Three-Fold Land. With him, a “remnant of a remnant” will survive the Last Battle; without him, every Aiel alive will die. He Who Comes With the Dawn is said to come at dawn from Rhuidean, marked with two Dragons instead of one. Some call He Who Comes With the Dawn the Car'a'carn, the Chief of Chiefs—both are the same man, Rand al'Thor. Rand fulfills the requirements of being the son of a Maiden of the Spear, raised by “wetlanders” and of Aiel blood. See also al'Thor, Rand; Car'a'carn; Coramoor; Couladin; Dragon Reborn.

    Chapter 26: Whitebridge

    Harp icon
  334. Bartim, tEotW, p. 325—Innkeeper of the Wayfarer's Rest, an inn where Thom, Mat, and Rand stop in Whitebridge. He complains of bad feet.
  335. Queen Morgase Trakand, tEotW, p. 325—Former Queen of Andor and High Seat of House Trakand. Mother of Elayne and Gawyn. She married Taringail Damodred, a prince of Cairhien, to further solidify her claim to the Throne of Andor and keep peace between the two nations; when Tigraine disappeared, Morgase made the best claim to succeed her, and married her widower to gain the support that would be gained by such action. Taringail was Elayne's and Gawyn's father; he died when they were young. Morgase has since gone through several lovers, including Thomdril Merrilin, a former court-bard; Gareth Bryne, her First Prince of the Sword and Captain of the Guards; and most recently Lord Gaebril, a man who led the faction that stilled the riots in Caemlyn that sprang up on Morgase's trip to Tar Valon to inquire about Elayne's whereabouts. Thom was exiled from the city of Caemlyn when he started telling her what he really thought of some of her plans, her relationship with Bryne ebbed away until finally Gaebril told her to exile him too, and Gaebril eventually chased Morgase herself out of the city when she found he was usurping her power. The Daughter-Heir of Andor is traditionally trained by Aes Sedai in the White Tower, and Morgase underwent novice training to keep the tradition alive. She was given the gift of a Great Serpent ring despite not being Accepted, and still wears it on her left hand when possible. She was previously advised by Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan of the Red Ajah, who she dismissed at Gaebril's suggestion; Elaida later became the Amyrlin Seat in Tar Valon. When Morgase discovered that Gaebril (who, unbeknownst to her, was actually Rahvin) meant to usurp her throne, she fled, and when she learned that the Dragon Reborn had taken over Caemlyn and none of her former supporters would give her aid, she fled to Amadicia to get help from the only place she thought she could: Pedron Niall and the Children of the Light. She was not aware that Rand only wanted to give her country back to her, not to mention believed that she was dead. If she had made her presence known, she would no doubt have had her country back in one piece, but as royalty she believed she must work on her own and trust no one. She went into hiding after the Seanchan attack (Eamon Valda believes her to be dead) under her mother's first name, Maighdin, to avoid instant recognition, and later became a maidservant to Faile; she told Faile that she was a lady's handmaid before coming into her service. When Faile's group was captured, she became a prisoner of the Shaido, and was detained in their encampment. Morgase has come to many realizations about her life, and about her choice in men: Taringail saw her as a pawn, Thom as a beauty to be hunted and romanced, Gareth Bryne as a queen to be served. None had made her his entire life. However, a former member of the Queen's Guard, Martyn Tallanvor, has taken a liking to his former queen, and she found herself almost unconsciously returning his attentions. Her adopted son Galad believed her dead at the hands of Eamon Valda, and killed him in a duel on her behalf. Her son Gawyn believed her dead at the hands of the Dragon Reborn, and was only restrained from killing him by Egwene's command. Her daughter Elayne believed her dead as well (though she as yet has no plans for vengeance), and her new mistress Faile had no idea of her true identity. Morgase's cover has since been blown: she presided over Perrin's trial, finding insufficient evidence to demand his execution. It is presumed that Gawyn and Elayne have heard the news that she is alive, or at least that they will find out soon. Her sign is three golden keys.

  336. Owyn Merrilin, tEotW, p. 332—Thom's nephew. He could channel. He was found by the Red Ajah and gentled on the spot; this goes against the custom of taking the man to the Tower to be gentled, and then helping him to stay alive afterwards. Thom never forgave the Aes Sedai for their misdeed, and is almost willing to do anything to avenge Owyn's wrongful fate. See also Merrilin, Thomdril.

  340. Jaret Byar, tEotW, p. 375—Gaunt-faced second-in-command under Dain Bornhald over the army of Whitecloaks that came to the Two Rivers. Byar held fierce loyalty to Dain's father, and transferred that loyalty to Dain when he died. He has deep-set eyes. Byar now sides with Galad against Eamon Valda; he has picked up some of Galad's morals in doing what's right no matter who it hurts. He has an almost rabid hatred of Perrin. See also Bornhald, Dain; Bornhald, Geofram.
  341. Geofram Bornhald, tEotW, p. 377—Dain's father. He led the assault on Falme and the Seanchan there, at which he died. Valda did not appreciate him, and thinks he was “soft.” Dain believes that Perrin or Rand killed him, and vows to make Perrin pay for that imagined crime. Bornhald was perhaps the most noble Whitecloak we have encountered so far—he kept the zealots under him in check; let the Questioners, especially Jaichim Carridin, know he disapproved of their methods and loathed them in general See also Bornhald, Dain.

    Chapter 31: Play for your Supper

  342. Master Grinwell, tEotW, p. 388—Alleged brother of Else. Mat pretends to be him so that he has an excuse to have been in Tar Valon. He claims he is from Comfrey, north of Baerlon. See Cauthon, Matrim. See also Grinwell; Grinwell, Else.
  343. Mistress Grinwell, tEotW, p. 388—Yellow-haired mistress of the Grinwell farm. See also Grinwell; Grinwell, Else.
  344. Else Grinwell, tEotW, p. 388—A former novice in the White Tower. She was dismissed because she spent most of her time admiring the Warders and their trainees in the practice yard instead of studying. Rand and Mat stayed at her father's farm while enroute to Caemlyn (from Shadar Logoth). See also Grinwell.
  345. Tarwin, tEotW, p. 389—Hero of old and subject of many songs and tales. He has a pass, Tarwin's Gap, named after him between Shienar and what was once Malkier.
  346. Mistress Aynora, tEotW, p. 389—A woman in a song Perrin knows. She owns a rooster.
  347. Darling Sara, tEotW, p. 390—Subject of a song Rand plays in Arien. He knows it as “Ferry O'er the River,” but the innkeeper there called it “Darling Sara.”
  348. Eazil Forney, tEotW, p. 391—Farmer from near Arien. He was at the inn there, drank too much, and had to stay overnight. The innkeeper asked him to give the entertainment, Rand and Mat, a ride along the road for a ways.

    Chapter 32: Four Kings in Shadow

  349. Saml Hake, tEotW, p. 394—Innkeeper of The Dancing Cartman in Four Kings. He is the first skinny innkeeper Rand had ever met, and the only one he did not trust.
  350. Jaim, tEotW, p. 396—Subject of a song Rand knows. It is called “Jolly Jaim” where Rand learned it, but in Four Kings it is known as “Rhea's Fling.”
  351. Rhea, tEotW, p. 396—Subject of a song Rand knows. It is called “Jolly Jaim” where Rand learned it, but in Four Kings it is known as “Rhea's Fling.”

  353. Strom, tEotW, p. 396—Bouncers at The Dancing Cartman. His arms are big enough to be legs.
  354. Howal Gode, tEotW, p. 400—Merchant from Whitebridge. He wears silk-lined velvet cloaks and velvet slippers. He drives two black coaches. He is also a Darkfriend.
  355. Great Lord of the Dark, tEotW, p. 406—Name used by Darkfriends for the Dark One, claiming that to use his true name would be blasphemy. See Shai'tan.

    Chapter 33: The Dark Waits

    Heron-mark Sword icon
  356. Hyam Kinch, tEotW, p. 409—Farmer whose cart Rand and Mat ride after leaving The Queen's Man, an inn in a town along the Caemlyn road. He is leathery-faced and taciturn.
  357. Alpert Mull, tEotW, p. 416—Stolid man with a square face and square, worn hands. His cows have gone dry, his chickens have stopped laying eggs, and his pastures have gone barren. He wonders whether his land will even grow hay this year, much less a decent crop. He gave Rand and Mat a ride for a segment of their trip between Four Kings and Caemlyn. He gave them each scarves to keep the sun and dust off of them; they used to belong to his sons.
  358. Bain, tEotW, p. 416—Old man Mull knows. He let Mull have half a wagon for his own.
  359. Rulan Allwine, tEotW, p. 417—Innkeeper of the inn in Market Sheran, where Paitr Conel meets Rand and Mat.
  360. Paitr Conel, tEotW, p. 419—A young boy from Andor who comes to meet Morgase in Amador. He was one of the many Darkfriends who found Rand and Mat on their way to Caemlyn due to the evil of Mat's dagger from Shadar Logoth. He was apparently one of the few people the Whitecloaks were correct about.… See also Jen.
  361. Ackley Farren, tEotW, p. 421—Man who once got drunk and spent the night on the roof of the inn in Market Sheran.
  362. Mother Brune, tEotW, p. 425—Wisdom-equivalent in The Queen's Man, the inn where Rand takes ill.
  363. Master Inlow, tEotW, p. 425—Innkeeper at The Queen's Man, the inn where Rand takes ill. He was willing to treat Rand and crosserf("Mat") quite nicely, as long as Mat kept Rand out of the common room.

    Chapter 34: The Last Village

    Trollocs icon
  364. Raimun Holdwin, tEotW, p. 437—Man from a village near Caemlyn. He is a Darkfriend, and talked to a Myrddraal outside his inn.
  365. Almen Bunt, tEotW, p. 438—Andoran farmer from the same village as Holdwin. He pretended to be fixing his cart while Holdwin was talking to a Fade, and later found he was looking for Mat and Rand during their trip through Andor right after leaving Emond's Field. He later offered the two a ride, since he does not like Holdwin that much and would rather help the boys than the Darkfriend. His sister owns an orchard. He is loyal to the Queen. He is missing many teeth. See also Adim; Bunt, Adrinne; Hahn.
  366. Elayne Trakand, tEotW, p. 441—Former Daughter-Heir of Andor, now Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah and Queen of Andor. She is the daughter of Morgase and her late husband, Taringail Damodred, and sister to Gawyn. She is also half-sister to Galad, although she would rather not be reminded of this fact; she thinks Galad virtuous to the point of fault, and does not really like him. She has considerable strength in the One Power, and is one of the strongest female channelers in a thousand years or more, possibly since the Age of Legends, with the exceptions of Egwene, Nynaeve, Sharina, Aviendha, and some trainees. She has red-gold curly hair. During her stay in the Stone of Tear, Elayne realized she loved Rand al'Thor, and told him how she felt; he felt similarly. She had no idea at the time what Min meant about “having to share him,” but now knows about Min's viewing of Rand with the three women's heads, indicating that Rand will fall in love with Min, Elayne, and Aviendha, and they with him. Later, when she and Nynaeve had trouble with Moghedien, Elayne ended up bonding Birgitte as her Warder (despite being only Accepted at the time) in order to save Birgitte's life. Elayne later went to Ebou Dar and found the Bowl of the Winds, a ter'angreal that they used to fix the weather. She then returned to Andor upon hearing news of her mother's disappearance; she has since taken the Lion Throne, fighting the Black Ajah, Darkfriends, and other Andoran nobles. She recently ended Arymilla's campaign for the Throne, which convinced all but one of the necessary nobles to support her for the Lion Throne. During that campaign, Elayne was captured by the Black Ajah, though Birgitte convinced the Windfinders to help rescue her. She then convinced several other houses to support her—evidently their main concern was that she would be a puppet of Rand al'Thor. In the mean time, Elayne has managed to reproduce several ter'angreal, something which no one else has been able to do since the Breaking of the World, as well as discover a way to share a Warder bond between three women; she bonded Rand along with Aviendha, her new sister by Aiel tradition, and Min. Shortly after bonding Rand, she became pregnant with Rand's twins. To protect the children, she is not revealing the father of the twins, and has allowed the rumor that Doilin Mellar is their father to persist as an added means of protection. She is the first ruler of Andor to ever cede land to anyone: she agreed with the Sea Folk to cede a few square miles of Andor to them in exchange for their help feeding the city during the siege. She also sends Andoran troops to the Black Tower (which is on Andoran soil) periodically to remind its inhabitants that they are still within Andor and subject to its laws. She is proving to be a capable leader, one her people may eventually be quite proud of, though for now times in Andor are hard enough that most do not appreciate her yet. See also al'Thor, Rand; al'Vere, Egwene; Amys; Aviendha; Birgitte; Damodred, Galadedrid; Damodred, Taringail; Daughter-Heir (of Andor); Farshaw, Elmindreda; Hanlon, Daved; Shyanda; Taravin, Dyelin; Traemane, Elayne; Trakand, Gawyn; Trakand, Morgase.
  367. Gawyn Trakand, tEotW, p. 441—Son of Queen Morgase of Andor and brother to Elayne. He is, technically, First Prince of the Sword now that Elayne is Queen. He and his half-brother Galad went to train with the Warders in the White Tower, as all sons of Andoran queens have for centuries, and both now possess considerable skill with the sword. During the chaos that erupted after Siuan Sanche's deposition, Gawyn formed a band of young men, everyone who had trained with the Warders except Galad, who are called the Younglings. The Younglings fought back against their teachers, who were trying to free Siuan and Leane from their imprisonment. Gawyn himself killed Hammar and Coulin, the men in charge of teaching the sword and for his personal training, respectively, both of which were Blademasters—few Warders are as good as they were, and Gawyn managed to kill both of them. When he learned more of what actually happened, Gawyn did not know which party to support—he believed that anyone who opposed Tower Law by trying to free Siuan and Leane was wrong, but at the same time he realized he did not know all the facts surrounding the change in leadership. In fact, his sister Elayne and her friends Nynaeve al'Meara and Egwene al'Vere sided with those who broke from the Tower, and Egwene, the woman he wanted to marry, was their leader. He believed the rumor that Rand killed his mother, and only refrained from killing him because Egwene made him promise not to; it is not known whether he knows that Morgase still lives. Gawyn made many enemies inside and outside the Tower, just by leading the Younglings. He detested Rand because he thinks Rand killed his mother (when in fact no one did), and was very upset when he found out that his sister loved him. He has since forgiven Rand, however, upon digesting evidence from the Aes Sedai and other sources. Gawyn led the Younglings on harrying parties against the army besieging Tar Valon; Lord Bryne was quite upset to find out that it was someone who had inside information about his tactics that was harrying him so successfully. At one time, Gawyn had no problem with the fact that he had killed his former teachers—they were rebelling against a lawfully raised Amyrlin—but he has since begun to feel guilty, wondering if he had truly chosen the just side. It still eats at him. He has stated that he did not like Elaida—she had always been cold to him as his mother's advisor—but he supported her because he disliked what Siuan had done, involving Egwene and Elayne in her plotting. Eventually, he learned that Egwene herself lead the rebels, and that she had been captured. He stubbornly refused to believe she could possibly be safe as a prisoner, and vowed to do anything to rescue her. He eventually jumped at the chance to help Siuan mount a rescue; Egwene was quite angry at him (and at Siuan) for disobeying her direct orders. Gawyn is finding it difficult to adjust to his relationship to Egwene as her Warder—he is used to being his own person, and finds it difficult to stand to the side. Silviana does not like him, thinking him impetuous and a danger to Egwene. Unbeknownst to Egwene, he kept the three ring ter'angreal from the Seanchan bloodknives he slayed in the Tower, not fully understanding what they do. His sign is a white boar. See also al'Vere, Egwene; Coulin; Damodred, Galadedrid; Damodred, Taringail; Hammar; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Morgase.
  368. Daughter-Heir (of Andor), tEotW, p. 441—By Andoran tradition, the first-born daughter of the Queen is her heir to the throne. The Daughter-Heir is traditionally sent to Tar Valon to receive training from the Aes Sedai, although until the previous Daughter-Heir, Elayne, most have been too weak to get beyond novice training. Now that Elayne is Queen, there is no Daughter-Heir in Andor. See also Damodred, Tigraine; Trakand, Elayne.
  369. Luc Mantear, tEotW, p. 441—Son of Queen Mordrellen of Andor and brother to Tigraine. Gitara Moroso, then advisor to the Queen, told him that his fame—or his fate—lay in the Great Blight. He disappeared from Andor into the Blight shortly before Tigraine disappeared, and was never seen again. Luc's soul in fact was merged with the soul of Isam Mandragoran, Lan's cousin, who disappeared into the Blight at about the same time. Luc/Isam now roams Tel'aran'rhiod as a unified entity that can change back and forth between the two identities readily. The combined entity now serves as an assassin for the Shadow, whom the wolves call Slayer. It was Luc who killed the Gray Man that Egwene and Elayne stumbled upon in the Tower. He may also have killed Herid Fel. Luc is aware that Rand is his nephew. He bears a deep loathing for Perrin, who foiled his plans in the Two Rivers and nearly killed him. Luc is usually more accommodating than his alter ego, Isam, but not when it comes to Perrin. Gaul compares Luc to a lopinginny, a bird from the Waste: he talks big, but is actually a coward. He went to the Blight wanting to become part of something important. See also Chiendelna, Luc; Damodred, Tigraine; Mandragoran, Isam; Mantear, Mordrellen; Moroso, Gitara; Slayer; Trakand, Morgase.
  370. Tigraine Damodred, tEotW, p. 441—First wife of Taringail Damodred, and Galad's mother. She was the Daughter-Heir to the Throne of Andor and daughter of Queen Mordrellen, but she disappeared. Her disappearance set of the Third War of Andoran Succession. When Rand was in the Royal Palace in Caemlyn, several people commented on his striking resemblance to Tigraine; this is no coincidence, since Tigraine is Rand's mother. She fled to the Aiel Waste upon a warning from Gitara Moroso to become a Maiden of the Spear, and gave birth to Rand when the Aiel were fighting near Tar Valon. Her maiden name was Mantear. See also al'Thor, Rand; Damodred, Galadedrid; Damodred, Taringail; Daughter-Heir (of Andor); Janduin; Mantear, Luc; Mantear, Mordrellen; Moroso, Gitara; Shaiel; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Morgase.

    Chapter 35: Caemlyn

    Andoran Lion icon
  371. Basel Gill, tEotW, p. 451—Pink-cheeked balding man with graying hair who followed Morgase when she left Caemlyn. He was the innkeeper of the Queen's Blessing, an inn in Caemlyn which at one time housed Rand and Mat while they were waiting for Moiraine and the rest of the group to catch up to them. A man loyal to his queen. He now serves as Perrin's shambayan (housekeeper). He appears in the Dark One's second vision.
  372. Gareth Bryne, tEotW, p. 455—Former First Prince of the Sword and Captain of the Queen's Guards under Queen Morgase in Andor. He was appointed to the position because Morgase had no living male relatives, but was exiled from Caemlyn on a suggestion from Morgase's new advisor, Lord Gaebril. He moved to his private estates in rural Andor, where he later presided over the trial of three young women who unintentionally burned a barn: they turned out to be Siuan Sanche, the former Amyrlin Seat; Leane Sharif, the former Keeper of the Chronicles, and Min Farshaw. When these three made an oath to serve him and then apparently broke it, he followed them out of sheer curiosity to Salidar. Once there, he discovered the true identity of the three, as well as that the Tower was truly broken. The Aes Sedai in Salidar persuaded him to command the army they would need to take the Amyrlin Seat from Elaida, since he was the only commander that the Warders thought would be willing and able to help them. He is one of the best military commanders west of the Aiel Waste, in a league with Rodel Ituralde, Davram Bashere, Agelmar Jagad, Matrim Cauthon, and the late Pedron Niall. Bryne developed feelings for Siuan Sanche during their time with the rebellion; he wished to avoid another mistake like his relationship as Morgase's lover, and also never forgave Siuan for when she publicly shamed him years ago, so it took some time for their relationship to develop. He planned to be the first general to take the city of Tar Valon—the closest anyone else had ever come was with Guaire Amalasan's armies, who got as far as the White Tower itself, and Artur Hawkwing, who never managed to go beyond beseiging the city. Actually, Amalasan's troops never beseiged the city, they simply managed to breech the walls; Hawkwing never managed to stop the supply ships coming up the river. Bryne thought he would be able to overcome this problem by purchasing ships along the way to Tar Valon, but when Egwene brought the entire army to Tar Valon by Traveling, that plan faltered; instead, he pressured her to let him use gateways to breach the walls and get inside the city. His army may indeed have succeeded, with the help of the Seanchan raid, but it eventually proved unnecessary: the Tower surrendered, selected Egwene Amyrlin, and stood down. He resisted being put in charge of the Tower Guard, leaving Chubain in place at that post. He is stocky, with a bluff face. The years have given him some sort of comforting calmness. Men always follow him—they have learned from history that doing so is the path to military victory. Bryne taught Galad and Gawyn to practice the sword with both hands alternating to avoid weakness.

  373. Loial, tEotW, p. 461—Son of Arent son of Halan, an Ogier from Stedding Shangtai. He left the stedding at around age 90 to see the world; by Ogier standards, he was not yet old enough to leave the stedding without permission from the Council of Elders. He is fond of books and history, and is an excellent Treesinger. He is writing a book about his travels with the three ta'veren he meets, Rand al'Thor, Mat Cauthon, and Perrin Aybara. Loial was constantly afraid that his mother would find him and try to marry him off and settle him down; however, he does like his mother's choice of wives for him, Erith. He, like most of the Ogier, is sad that most humans do not remember the Ogier, and is horrified that some even think he is a Trolloc on first seeing him. Loial's mother did indeed catch up with him; he and Erith are now married. He spoke to the Stump at Stedding Shangtai, convincing them to intervene in the Last Battle. Loial is taking notes for a book, which will eventually be called The Dragon Reborn and will catalog everything he has been through with the three ta'veren as well as any details he has been able to pry out of them. He has always had a secret desire to be hasty, as he perceives all humans to be. See also Arent; Covril; Erith; Halan; Haman; Ledar; Manfor, Karldin; Underhill.
  374. Arent, tEotW, p. 461—Loial's father, Halan's son. See also Halan; Loial.

  376. Sightblinder, tEotW, p. 464—Aiel name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  377. Haman, tEotW, p. 496—One of the Elders of Stedding Shangtai, son of Dal son of Morel. He came with Loial's mother Covril to find Loial and take him back to the stedding. Loial was not there, and they were not able to catch up with him for quite some time. Loial intentionally skipped Stedding Shantai on his trips to the stedding so as to avoid Haman and his mother. He is a prominent Speaker, and Loial's favorite role model. Haman is over three hundred years old. See also Covril; Loial; Morel.

  378. Mother Grubb, tEotW, p. 489—Woman in Caemlyn who sells herbs and poultices, births babies, tends the sick and tells fortunes. Rand considered asking for her services to help Mat.
  379. Lamgwin Dorn, tEotW, p. 490—Breane's boyfriend, a hard, bulky man from Caemlyn. He lived as a street thug, but was loyal to his queen. He joined Morgase when she left the country, and has since become Perrin's bodyservant. He was captured by the Whitecloaks, so Denton has taken over his duties for the time being. See also Taborwin, Breane.

  380. Lini Eltring, tEotW, p. 501—Childhood nurse to Maighdin, Morgase, and Elayne Trakand. She has many wise sayings, which Elayne and Morgase are fond of quoting to themselves and others (probably because they have been ingrained into their minds so much). She went with Morgase when she fled Andor to Amadicia, and now serves as Faile's chief maid. She is bony, and has white hair. In Faile's absence, she worked with Perrin to get her back. See also Bashere, Faile; Dorlain, Maighdin; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Maighdin; Trakand, Morgase.
  381. Galadedrid (Galad) Damodred, tEotW, p. 503—Son of Morgase's late husband Taringail Damodred and his first wife Tigraine. He is half-brother to Elayne and Gawyn, as well as half-brother (on the other side) to Rand. He is stunningly handsome; even Nynaeve has trouble blushing when she speaks to him, and Aes Sedai often forsook their work to watch him practice (shirtless) in the sword yard when he was in training. He disappeared from Tar Valon during the violence that accompanied Siuan's deposition and joined Eamon Valda's band of the Children of the Light. Because of his sword skill, Galad was promoted to an official position very quickly, and soon controlled his own small band of men. He says he became a Whitecloak because it “felt right.” He is extremely virtuous, and will do whatever he thinks is right regardless of who it hurts, even himself. In fact, he started a war in Samara to help Elayne and Nynaeve escape. His sign is a winged silver sword, point down. Galad had feelings for Egwene al'Vere, and although she was flattered by his attentions, she did not return his love. He is quite popular among his soldiers. Galad believed that Valda killed his mother after sexually abusing her, and killed him as punishment for this. He was incorrect about the killing part, at least. Galad has much skill with the sword, and has officially achieved Blademaster status by killing Valda, by many accounts one of the greatest swordsmen in the world. Galad is also a better swordsman than his brother, Gawyn, who also achieved Blademaster status by killing Hammar and Coulin, their teachers in the Tower. Galad became Lord Captain Commander of the Children of the Light after he killed Eamon Valda, coming to lead the 7000 or so men that remain part of the Children under the Lord Captain Commander; the rest separated to follow Rhadam Asunawa, the High Inquisitor. See also al'Thor, Rand; al'Vere, Egwene; Damodred, Taringail; Damodred, Tigraine; sur Paendrag Paeron, Berelain; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Gawyn; Trakand, Morgase; Valda, Eamon.
  382. Martyn Tallanvor, tEotW, p. 505—One of Maighdin's companions. He is actually a tall young man from Andor who served in the Queen's Guards until Morgase fled Andor. When Gaebril had the guards swear new oaths to the laws and customs of Andor (instead of to the Queen), Tallanvor swore them but immediately went back to his room and reswore the old oath in the old style (cutting his arm with his sword, indicating that his blood will be shed before the Queen's will). He loves his queen more than his life, and now serves as her personal bodyguard. He went looking for her himself when Morgase was captured by the Shaido, and brought word back to Perrin that the Seanchan were also hunting the Shaido, and an alliance might be possible. Lini has suggested more than once that Morgase and Tallanvor be wed. See also Trakand, Morgase.

  383. Gilda, tEotW, p. 522—Serving girl in the Queen's Blessing, an inn in Caemlyn. According to Basel Gill, she is the world's biggest gossip, and the perfect person to tell about a fabricated dream in which he learned that Gaebril plotted to kill Elayne.
  384. Lord of the Grave, tEotW, p. 530—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.

    Chapter 42: Rememberance of Dreams

    Ravens icon
  385. Balthamel, tEotW, p. 539—One of the Forsaken. He was the first of the Forsaken to be released from the sealing. He was trapped very close to the surface of the Bore, and thus not shielded very effectively from the passage of time; he emerged so deformed by age that he had to hide his face behind a cloth and unable to speak with his own tongue. He was killed by the Green Man at the Eye of the World. Unknown to almost everyone (including the Forsaken), Balthamel has been reincarnated in the body of a young Borderlander woman. She is now called Aran'gar. See also Aginor; Aran'gar; Saranov, Halima; Someshta.
  386. Demandred, tEotW, p. 539—One of the Forsaken. He is tall and handsome, with a hawk-like nose and dark hair. Second-best seems to be the story of his life. He was born Barid Bel Medar one day after Lews Therin Telamon, and from the first day proceeded to almost equal Lews Therin's accomplishments, almost equal Lews Therin's strength, and almost equal him but never surpass him in everything. He became one of the Light's greatest generals, once again second in command under Lews Therin. It was Demandred himself who re-discovered the strategy of separating foes and crushing them one at a time; he discovered it by reading old writings. Demandred believed that he was Lews Therin's intellectual and military superior, and was furious when Lews Therin was chosen to lead the Light's forces over him during the War of the Shadow. He developed a burning hatred of Lews Therin, and finally dedicated his life to the Shadow so he could finally better Lews Therin—he believed the Shadow would eventually win the war, since Lews Therin was commanding the Light's armies, and that if he, Barid Bel Medar, had been chosen to command them, the Light would have prevailed. When Demandred was freed from the Bore, he transferred his hatred of Lews Therin intact to the new recipient of his soul, Rand al'Thor. Demandred was told by the Dark One to lead his plan to convert or destroy Rand, and promised him to be Nae'blis if he succeeded. However, since Moridin has been declared Nae'blis, he is now only ordered to obey Moridin. Demandred's assumed identity and whereabouts are unknown, but he had formed an alliance of sorts with Mesaana and Semirhage before their respective demises. Demandred never smiles, and never seems to enjoy anything; Graendal once heard him say that he would laugh the day he could snap the neck of Lews Therin. According to Lannis, a Blue Ajah scholar, Demandred is the only Forsaken who exceeded Mesaana in anger. The Great Lord has stated, through Moridin, that he is pleased with Demandred's actions. See also Bao the Wyld; Medar, Barid Bel; Shendla.

  387. Machin Shin, tEotW, p. 545—Machin Shin, the entity that haunts the Ways. It is a creation of the Ways that consumes the soul of any living creature it encounters. It is not known whether Machin Shin is a creation of the Dark One or a thing spawned by the taint on saidin, which was used to create the ways. See Machin Shin.

  390. Agelmar Jagad, tEotW, p. 577—Easar's general in Shienar. He is possibly the best military commander alive (excepting possibly Mat, the Aiel chiefs, and a few Seanchan commanders). He is one of the Great Captains, those assigned to lead the forces of the Light in the Last Battle. See also Jagad, Amalisa.

  391. Dai Shan, tEotW, p. 583—Title used by those in the Borderlands for Lan, as well as others such as Agelmar. The title is that of the Diademed Battle Lords, the generals of the Borderlands. See also Jagad, Agelmar; Mandragoran, Akir; Mandragoran, Lain; Mandragoran, Lan.
  392. Ragan, tEotW, p. 583—One of Uno's soldiers. He thought Nynaeve could skin and butcher a boar at ten paces with the sharpness of her tongue. He has a puckered arrow scar on his cheek. See also Dagar, Masema.
  393. Ingtar Shinowa, tEotW, p. 584—Shienaran Lord. Lord Agelmar charges him to lead the band of soldiers to recover the Horn of Valere. His sign is the Gray Owl.

  395. Breyan Mandragoran, tEotW, p. 595—Mother of Isam. Her attempt to seize the throne of Malkier for her husband allowed the Trolloc hordes to come crashing down. See also Mandragoran, Akir; Mandragoran, Isam; Mandragoran, Lain; Mandragoran, Lan; ti Mandragoran, Leanna.
  396. Cowin Gemallen, tEotW, p. 596—Man who plotted with Breyan to seize the throne of Malkier for her son Isam. He was almost made King of Malkier himself—if two people had voted the other way on the council, he would have been. Unknown to everyone until shortly before the fall of Malkier, he was a Darkfriend. When they found out, many called for his head on a pike, but as he was so close to the king, he instead was allowed to duel with the king, and was slain by Akir. Also called Cowin Fairheart. After he betrayed Malkier, he was captured by Jain Farstrider. See also Mandragoran, Akir; Mandragoran, Breyan; Mandragoran, Isam; Mandragoran, Lain; Mandragoran, Lan; ti Mandragoran, Leanna.
  397. Cowin Fairheart, tEotW, p. 596— See Gemallen, Cowin.
  398. Isam Mandragoran, tEotW, p. 596—A man, at least in appearance, created by the Shadow some years ago. It was Isam who brought the Trollocs through the Ways to attack Emond's Field when Perrin went back to defend it. He was later sent by Moridin to murder Padan Fain. He is the same Isam that disappeared into the Blight years ago, Isam Mandragoran, Lan's cousin. He has a mysterious ability to enter Tel'aran'rhiod in the flesh without a Gateway and leave it the same way, as well as change personalities and become Luc Mantear, the brother of Tigraine and uncle of Galad and Rand, who disappeared into the Blight years ago. The Shadow's minions call him, “the man with two souls.” He is also Slayer. He was recently assigned to kill Perrin Aybara, with Graendal's help. They failed, and instead caused Mesaana's death in the process. He has also been assigned at various times to kill Rand, though the Forsaken continually give him new orders, distracting him from that task. Isam went to the Shadow, hoping that he could be given the ability to channel; even the Dark One could not grant that, but he was able to unite Isam's soul with Luc's to make him unique. Isam now considers himself a hunter, and that is all he desires to be. See also Chiendelna, Luc; Mandragoran, Breyan; Mandragoran, Isam; Mandragoran, Lain; Mandragoran, Lan; Mantear, Luc; Slayer.
  399. Jain Charin, tEotW, p. 598—Real name of Jain Farstrider. He is a modern hero, a traveler and writer from Malkier. He is the subject of the book The Travels of Jain Farstrider, a popular contemporary novel, and is believed to have translated the Prophecies of the Dragon shortly before disappearing. It is thought that he was a victim of Ba'alzamon's scheming, and he escaped to the Ogier stedding and was never heard from again. He spent the last few months of his life posing as Noal Charin, a member of the party traveling with Mat Cauthon, though Noal claims Jain was his cousin. He died in the world of the Aelfinn and Eelfinn—he sacrificed himself so that Mat, Thom, and Moiraine could escape. See also Charin, Jain; Charin, Noal; Farstrider, Jain.
  400. Herot, tEotW, p. 598—Hero of old. He has a crossing in Malkier named after him.
  401. Jehaan, tEotW, p. 598—Hero of old. He has a landmark in Malkier named after him: the Stair of Jehaan, the place where the last of the Malkieri gave their lives in a futile attempt to save their nation.
  402. Heartsbane, tEotW, p. 601—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.

  403. Easar Togita, tEotW, p. 607—King of Shienar. He has a compact frame, a square face, and white hair in a topknot. He is a head shorter than Paitar of Arafel. Sadness is a permanent presence in his eyes. His third son is married to Ethenielle's daughter. His wife died about eleven years ago.

  405. Toma dur Ahmid, tEotW, p. 658 (702)—Person who devised the Toman Calendar, which was adopted approximately two hundred years after the death of the last male Aes Sedai and continued until the Trolloc Wars. The Calendar recorded years After the Breaking, or AB.
  406. Tiam of Gazar, tEotW, p. 658 (702)—Person who proposed the Gazaran Calendar, which celebrated the alleged freedom from the Trolloc threat by recording Free Years (FY). This calendar was adopted due to the chaos the resulted during the Trolloc Wars and the resulting confusion as to which year it actually was under the Toman Calendar.
  407. Uren din Jubai Soaring Gull, tEotW, p. 658 (702)—Sea Folk scholar and deviser of the Farede Calendar, which measured dates from the arbitrarily set end of the War of the Hundred Years as years of the New Era (NE). This calendar is currently in use.
  408. Farede, tEotW, p. 658 (702)—Panarch of Tarabon near the end of the War of the Hundred Years. She was responsible for promulgating the calendar that now bears her name, which measures years of the New Era (NE), the first of which marked the (arbitrary) end of the War.
  409. Lothair Mantelar, tEotW, p. 661 (707)—Founder of the Children of the Light and author of The Way of the Light, the Bible of the Whitecloaks. The book is so revered among the Children that those who cannot read are taught so that they can study Mantelar's words. Min once read a few pages of it, and considered them “dry nonsense,” but Galad thought Mantelar's words to be brilliant and joined the Children.

  413. Elansu, tGH, p. 13—The shatayan of Fal Dara keep. She is the one who informed Rand of Moiraine's decision to make him new clothes.
  414. Lady Amalisa Jagad, tGH, p. 13 (14)—Sister of Lord Agelmar. She is the one who actually delivers clothes to Rand, Mat, and Perrin. She is also the one who leads the search for the three boys when commanded by Liandrin. She has a dark, mature beauty, and the color of her cheeks sets it off. See also Jagad, Agelmar.
  415. Alwyn al'Van, tGH, p. 14—Cobbler of Emond's Field. It was he who made Rand's boots—Rand did not see why Alwyn's work needed to be replaced when Moiraine ordered new clothes made for him.
  416. Ronan, tGH, p. 20—The shambayan of Fal Dara keep. He is described as being “an age-withered but still tall” man.
  417. Tema, tGH, p. 21—Leathery-faced head groom (i.e., head stable hand) of Fal Dara keep. He is the first one to tell Rand of the orders to let no one leave the city.

    Chapter 3: Friends and Enemies

    Dagger icon
  418. Masema Dagar, tGH, p. 25—The Prophet. He was once one of Uno's underlings, and the one who respected Rand the least, but after he found out that Rand was the Dragon Reborn, he went his own way, preaching of Rand's glory as the “Lord Dragon Reborn.” Rand dispatched Perrin to bring Masema back into line. He was stark raving mad, and very dangerous. He even claimed that Masema Dagar was dead, and that he had been resurrected as the Prophet of the Dragon Reborn. He is described as a dark, frowning man of average size with a faded arrow-scar on his cheek. He cared nothing for appearances, least of all his own. He had deep-set, almost black eyes. Shortly before his death, Masema remembered his days as Masema, how he had earned his sword on his thirteenth nameday, but those were only a blurring memory. Masema was killed by Perrin's wife Faile; she claimed that her duty as a wife required her to step in where Perrin could not do what was necessary. Uno swears that he was lucky to survive his time with Masema. See also Prophet of the Dragon, The; Ragan.
  419. Uno Nomesta, tGH, p. 25—A Shienaran officer who long ago accompanied the Emond's Fielders away from Shienar. He is the one who gave orders to Masema before he became the Prophet. He is missing one eye, has a long scar across his face, and has a hairstyle like the typical Shienaran warrior—a topknot tied together and the rest of the head shaved clean. He is currently commanding a unit in Gareth Bryne's army. He finds it difficult to form a complete sentence, or even part of one, without cursing. He fears and respects Nynaeve; one of her favorite activities is to make him speak to her without cursing. Though he is not an officer, he has spent years training heavy cavalry, and few if any are better in the saddle. See also Dagar, Masema; Shinowa, Ingtar.
  420. Changu, tGH, p. 40 (37)—Guard on Padan Fain's dungeon cell for one watch. He is the first rude Shienaran Rand has ever met. He is most likely a Darkfriend, or at least corrupted by Fain, and allowed the Trollocs and Myrddraal to descend upon Fal Dara to free Fain. See also Fain, Padan; Nangu.
  421. Nidao, tGH, p. 41 (37)—Other guard on the gate during Changu's watch. The two almost always held watch together, even if it meant extra work. See also Changu; Fain, Padan.

    Chapter 4: Summoned

    Horn of Valere icon
  422. Liandrin, tGH, p. 47—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the Red. She has light hair and a face like a doll. She grew up in Tarabon. She led the group of thirteen Aes Sedai who declared themselves Black Ajah and fled the White Tower, murdering guards and even sisters in the process. Liandrin was Red Ajah before turning to the Black, but her oath to the Black was sworn before even being raised to the Accepted (perhaps before she came to the Tower), so it cannot really be said that she was ever Red Ajah at all. She was shielded by Moghedien for attempting to Compel her and given to a very enthusiastic Temaile to torture. She has since been given to Suroth as a da'covale. It is not known what happened to Liandrin after Suroth was exposed as atha'an shadar. She was on Verin's list of Black sisters. See also Alwhin.
  423. Gareth Byrne, tGH, p. 52 (47)—Misspelling of Gareth Bryne. This is one of several typos that occur throughout the series. See Bryne, Gareth.
  424. Maigan, tGH, p. 59 (53)—Long-faced, beautiful, large-eyed full-lipped Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She seems elongated somehow, though not tall. She was the Blue Ajah's replacement for Anaiya on Egwene's “Council” of sisters. She was one of Siuan's allies when she was Amyrlin, but now she blames Siuan for breaking the Tower. She stands as high as Myrelle or Morvrin in the Power. Siuan was forced to beg for readmittance into the Blue Ajah, and Maigan was one of the ones who most insisted on the begging. She is Lelaine's to her toenails. See also Nem, Admer.

    Chapter 5: The Shadow in Shienar

    Children of the Light icon
  425. Tetsuan, tGH, p. 63 (56)—One of only two Amyrlins to be deposed in the history of the White Tower. She betrayed Manetheren for her jealousy of Ellisande's powers. The fact that both she and Bonwhin (the only other Amyrlin to be stripped of the stole) were from the Red Ajah and both had been replaced by an Amyrlin raised from the Blue Ajah has caused a great deal of friction between the Red and Blue Ajahs. See also Amyrlin Seat; Ellisande; Meraighdin, Bonwhin.
  426. Ellisande, tGH, p. 63 (56)—Name given to Eldrene, wife of Aemon al'Caar al'Thorin, king of Manetheren. The name means “Rose of the Sun.” Her country was betrayed by Tetsuan, who was then the Amyrlin Seat, out of jealousy over her abilities and influence. See ay Ellan ay Carlan, Eldrene. See also al Caar al Thorin, Aemon; Tetsuan.
  427. Bonwhin Meraighdin, tGH, p. 63 (56)—Amyrlin Seat during the life of Artur Hawkwing, approximately one thousand years ago. She was raised from the Red Ajah, the last Amyrlin besides Elaida from the Red. She tried to use the Tower's influence to manipulate Hawkwing and make him a puppet ruler of the White Tower. This ended in disaster, as Hawkwing laid seige to Tar Valon and attempted to destroy the Aes Sedai stronghold—he nearly succeeded. Bonwhin was stripped of stole and staff and stilled for nearly destroying the Tower, and since then no Amyrlin from her Ajah has been raised. She was succeeded by Deane Aryman of the Blue Ajah, who took office after years of disorder in the Tower where no Amyrlin was chosen and attempted to undo the damage Bonwhin did to the Tower's reputation. Deane succeeded for the most part. Unfortunately, this created extreme tension between the Red and Blue Ajahs that still exists today, and is the main reason why the Red Ajah will (and did) take any pretext to pull down an Amyrlin raised from the Blue Ajah. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; al'Vere, Egwene; Amyrlin Seat; Aryman, Deane; Paendrag Tanreall, Artur; Tetsuan.
  428. Mazrim Taim, tGH, p. 66 (59)—False Dragon who wreaked havoc in Saldaea before being captured by Aes Sedai. He later escaped his captors, possibly with Black Ajah assistance (although this is completely unconfirmed). Hearing of Rand's amnesty, Taim came to Caemlyn and became the head of Rand's school of male channelers, now dubbed the Black Tower. He is almost as strong in the One Power as Rand is. Taim claims to have held off the madness that normally accompanies the taint for almost 35 years—he has been using the One Power for a very long time, and knows many tricks that Rand had not thought of on his own or been taught by Asmodean, such as how to test men for the ability. He seems to resent being second to Rand, and also gave orders to kill Rand. He is almost as tall as Rand, and has a hooked nose and dark eyes. He is a physically powerful and graceful man, although his skill with a sword is lacking. He gives special training to a growing number of Black Tower recruits—they are the only ones who wear the dragon besides Logain. There is also little doubt that every last one of them is a Darkfriend, as is Taim. Androl and others have noticed that every one of these new recruits learns too quickly after the “lessons” start, and they often seem to have altered personalities as well. Pevara revealed to Androl that those who can touch the True Source can be Turned to the Shadow against their will; this is what has happened to some of Taim's “special” students. See also Ablar, Logain; al'Thor, Rand; Dragon Reborn; M'Hael.
  429. Lord Captain Eamon Valda, tGH, p. 72 (64)—Lord Captain Commander of the Children of the Light after the death of Pedron Niall. He killed Niall's assassin shortly after the act, but it is not known whether this was set up, or whether Valda just happened to be in the right place at the right time. One of his first acts was to dismiss Niall's secretary, Sebban Balwer, for “someone who didn't twitch.” This was a mistake, as Balwer was Niall's true Master of Spies—he knows more about spying than anyone else in the world. Valda offered assistance to Morgase, as Niall had promised, but before doing so he required a “service” of her: to share his bed. Morgase escaped during the Seanchan attack, and Valda believes her to be dead. He has since fallen into disfavor with the Children of the Light, most especially with Galad, because of his dealings with Morgase; Galad because she is his stepmother, and with the other Children because she trained with the “witches” in Tar Valon. Galad has challenged him to Trial Beneath the Light for his crimes against Morgase. Valda is one of the best swordsmen in the world, and expected to finish Galad easily. As we know, Galad was a better swordsman than his brother, who himself killed two Blademasters at the same time, so one expects a good duel.

Surprisingly enough for a Whitecloak, much less a Questioner, Carridin is a Darkfriend. He was given orders (under the name Bors) by Ishamael to find and kill Rand al'Thor, and those orders were strengthened by a Myrddraal who promised to kill another member of Carridin's family every month until al'Thor was dead. So far, Carridin has lost a cousin (found skinned alive in his bed) and his youngest sister Dealda (carried from her bridal feast by a Fade). His older sister, Vanora, recently met with a similar fate. He himself was killed by Shiaine by drowning with brandy. See also Avarhin, Shiaine; Bors; ni Carridin, Dealda; Carridin, Vanora.

  440. Alric, tGH, p. 124 (109)—Siuan's Warder for about twenty years. He was murdered when Siuan was deposed, before the trial even started; the shock of what Elaida intended to do masked the usual emotions that accompany the death of a Warder for her at first, and when she was stilled she lost all contact with the destroyed bond. However, when she was Healed, all the emotions came rushing back to her. See also Sanche, Siuan.
  441. Raolin Darksbane, tGH, p. 127 (112)—False Dragon who declared himself the Dragon Reborn between 335 and 336 years after the Breaking of the World. He was able to channel the One Power, and developed a large group of followers. See also Dragon Reborn.

  442. Hurin, tGH, p. 152 (134)—Thief-taker for the king of Shienar. He is lean and wiry, and has shoulder-length gray hair that he wears loose. His round fice is lined with age, and he has small eyes. He is also a “sniffer”—one who can “smell” evil, even where it was done in the past. He was chosen by the Borderlanders to serve as an emmissary to Rand. Rand was extremely harsh with him, and now realizes he owes him an apology. Hurin was very flattered that Rand apologized to him in person. He fought on Polov Heights with the other Borderlanders, and Rand watched him die on those same Heights. See also Melia.

His assassination precipitated the civil war in Cairhien; all of the nobles fought with each other over Galldrian's kingdom, and ended up destroying it in the process.

  448. Master Padwhin, tGH, p. 201 (177)—The carpenter in Emond's Field. Egwene remembers him looking at his tools in much the same way that the Amyrlin Seat looked at her and Nynaeve—this one for this purpose, that one for that.
  449. Alviarin Freidhen, tGH, p. 210 (185)—Aes Sedai of the White Ajah, but secretly the head of the Black Ajah. She was chosen to head the Black Ajah after the previous leader was killed by Ishamael after she managed to kill off the Amyrlin Seat without Ishamael's approval. Typical of most Whites, she has a very cool, collected personality. She served as Keeper of the Chronicles under Elaida, despite being of a different Ajah than Elaida was raised from. Elaida was all but forced to choose Alviarin in order to gain the support of the White Ajah when bringing charges against Siuan; unknown to Elaida, this also brought her the support of the Black Ajah. Without Alviarin as Keeper, the White Ajah would most likely have been divided over whether to depose Siuan, and only the Red would be behind Elaida, which would most likely have led to the stilling of Elaida and possibly even the dismantling of the Red Ajah. It still may, since Elaida is rapidly losing her support among the sisters. If Alviarin's loyalties are ever revealed, it is likely nothing will save either of them. Alviarin has been shown how to Travel by Mesaana, and one of her first uses of it brought her to Tremalking for several weeks, during which Elaida removed her as Keeper. She appeared to know that the Aes Sedai sent back from Salidar were spies; she refused to let Elaida speak with Meidani, who was one of them. She has since been estranged from the White Ajah; her fellow Whites blamed her for destroying their connection to the Amyrlin, and humiliating herself and her Ajah in the process. She was sent to Silviana for daily beatings. Despite her failures, Shaidar Haran has promised her that she is still his praised servant; he marked her for his own with an invisible mark on her forehead that only Alviarin can sense. She was among those identified as Black by Verin; she fled the Tower some time ago, and her whereabouts are unknown. She was one of the Black sisters who attacked Egwene in Tel'aran'rhiod. She threw an errant fireball at her, which Egwene dodged by disappearing and reappearing behind Alviarin; the fireball killed Talva instead. She retains her position as head of the Great Council of Thirteen. Pevara used her identity to infiltrate the Sharan encampment. She recently bonded Nensen as her Warder. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; Keeper of the Chronicles; Nensen; Talva.

  450. Melia, tGH, p. 218 (191)—Wife of Hurin. Hurin tells Rand that he must get them back to their normal universe to avoid upsetting her, because she would grieve to the end of her days if she did not even receive a body to prove he was dead. See also Hurin.

    Chapter 14: Wolfbrother

    Wolf icon
  451. Long Tooth, tGH, p. 226 (199)—Name the wolves give to Elyas Machera; the name is used because of the long knife Elyas uses to hunt with, which the wolves see as a long metal tooth. See Machera, Elyas.
  452. Young Bull, tGH, p. 227 (200)—Name the wolves use for Perrin. It is actually an image, one of the simpler ones in fact, but much more complex than simply “Young Bull.” The name comes from Perrin's early encounter with the Children of the Light, where he went on a rampage and killed two men, reminiscent of an angry young bull. See Aybara, Perrin. See also Aybara, Perrin; Long Tooth.
  453. Smoke, tGH, p. 228 (201)—One of the wolves.

  457. Artur Hawking, tGH, p. 247 (218)—This is either a typographical error (my guess) or a subtle tribute to Stephen Hawking or some other person of that last name. See Hawkwing, Artur.
  458. Selene, tGH, p. 253 (223)—A woman Rand met in the alternate universe he reached via Portal Stone by accident. He thought she was the most beautiful woman he ever met. Selene was actually just an identity that Lanfear assumed to guide Rand; she did not want to reveal her true identity to him before she established his trust. Rand has said that he liked her, at least until she tried to kill Egwene and Aviendha. See also Cyndane; Eronaile, Mierin; Lanfear.

  459. Maglin Madwen, tGH, p. 308 (272)—Innkeeper of the Nine Rings, an inn in Cairhien. Barmellin was going to sell him his brandy, until he saw the sa'angreal glow from being used—after that, he resolved to drink it himself. See also Madwen, Barin.
  460. Barin Madwen, tGH, p. 310 (273)—Late husband of Maglin. She describes him as tricksome and scheming, like every man she ever new, especially those from Cairhien.

Their goal was some day to write the complete history of the World since the Breaking, and some even before that. Mat cannot tell Adeleas and Vandene apart, even though they are not twins. Adeleas was brutally murdered, along with Ispan Shefar, the Black Sister she was guarding at the time, by Careane Fransi, a clandestine member of the Black Ajah. Vandene killed Careane in retribution; she and Sareitha Tomares were killed shortly thereafter by Ispan. See also Namelle, Vandene.
  469. Vandene Namelle, tGH, p. 321 (283)—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah, one of two Aes Sedai who went into voluntary retreat many years ago to Tifan's Well, a village located in the grassy plains of Arafel, along with her sister Adeleas. Their goal was some day to write the complete history of the World since the Breaking, and some even before that. They were both summoned back early, however, and they later came to Salidar to escape Elaida's summons back to the Tower. Vandene went with Elayne to Caemlyn, and dedicated nearly all of her waking hours to tracking down Adeleas's murderess. She found her when she, Elayne, Sareitha, and Careane were captured by the Black Ajah: Careane was named “one of us” by one of the Black sisters. Vandene immediately plunged her dagger into Careane's heart, but did not survive her long: Chesmal touched her and Sareitha with a weave Elayne had never seen before, and they both collapsed as if made of cloth. She was slender, and had white hair. See also Jaem; Namelle, Adeleas.
  470. Jaem, tGH, p. 326 (287)—Warder bonded to Vandene. He is old and grizzly with thin graying hair. See also Namelle, Vandene.

  473. Malena Aylar, tGH, p. 345 (303)—The Wisdom of Emond's Field in Nynaeve's test for becoming one of the Accepted. She is not a kindly Wisdom, even going as far as poisoning the children and then healing them to make it appear that she is helping. See also al'Meara, Nynaeve.
  474. Sharina Melloy, tGH, p. 350 (308)—Seventy year-old grandmother recruited as a novice along the way from Salidar to Tar Valon. She has a weathered, creased face and wears her silver hair in a bun. She has more potential than Nynaeve. She is dignified, and has gray hair that she keeps in a tight bun at the back of her head. She ran a very large family with a very firm hand until her children (and their children) grew up. She seems to have adopted all of the novices as granddaughters, or at least as great nieces. She was the woman who organized all the novices into “families”—she was apparently disgusted watching everyone simply floundering around. Editor's note: there is a distinct possibility that this Sharina is the same one as the Aes Sedai advisor to Nynaeve and Lan from Nynaeve's test for being raised to Accepted. These tests are based on possible future events, and the chance that Sharina became the advisor to the King of Malkier in one possible timeline is pretty good.
  475. Maric Mandragoran, tGH, p. 350 (309)—A very tall man who tries to stop Egwene from seeing Rand. See also al'Meara, Nynaeve; Mandragoran, Elnore; Mandragoran, Lan.

    Chapter 27: The Shadow in the Night

    Trollocs icon
  488. Tammuz, tGH, p. 398 (352)—One of the men who comes to kill Aludra. He is an Illuminator. He was the one who was at fault (or so Aludra believes) when the display for King Galldrian went awry, but she was blamed for it since she was the Mistress of the Chapter House. In reality, the mishap was due to Rand's interference and that of Trollocs. See also Aludra.
  489. Aludra, tGH, p. 398 (352)—Illuminator from Tarabon with dark, wavy, waist-length hair done in thin braids, large dark eyes, and a plump mouth. She was involved with the fireworks display for King Galldrian of Cairhien that went awry when Trollocs came. She was blamed for its failure, though she believed one of her colleagues, Tammuz, was to blame. She was cast out of the Illuminators' Guild, and when she refused to stop practicing the art of making fireworks, several men tried to kill her. She was saved by Mat and Thom in a barn, and as a sign of gratitude she gave Mat a roll of fireworks. She later came to Ebou Dar, and asked Mat to find her a bellfounder. He was knocked out during the battle and thus missed the bellfounder, but Aludra escaped and she later traveled with Mat's entourage. Since the Seanchan destroyed the Chapter House of the Illuminators in Tanchico, Aludra may be the last Illuminator alive. She has, with Mat and Rand's help, made dozens of dragons, what most of us would call cannons. She conscripted every bellfounder in Andor, Tear, and Illian to make them. They were to form a critical part of the defense of Caemlyn, and the Last Battle. See also Cauthon, Matrim; Luca, Valan; su Riatin Rie, Galldrian; Tammuz.

    Wheel of Time icon
  510. Ella, tGH, p. 487 (430)—Covril's mother, Soong's daughter. See also Covril; Soong.
  511. Luthair Paendrag Mondwhin, tGH, p. 495 (436)—Son of Artur Hawkwing. He led the forces across the Aryth Ocean. When they landed there, he led them to conquer the continent they found for themselves, and declared himself Emperor. His descendants are the Seanchan “of the Blood,” and the rest of the Seanchan are descended from his troops and the native inhabitants. See also Empress (of Seanchan), The; Paendrag Tanreall, Artur; Paendrag, Radhanan; Paendrag, Tuon Athaem Kore.
  512. Tuon Athaem Kore Paendrag, tGH, p. 497 (438)—Second daughter of Empress Radhanan, heir to the Crystal Throne of Seanchan, and leader of the Corenne, the Return. She has brown eyes and black hair (it was shaven off as is the custom of those of the High Blood until it grew back in as part of her travels with Mat Cauthon). She was also called the Daughter of the Nine Moons, the woman Mat was told he will marry. Mat later kidnapped her (in a matter of speaking), and she traveled with him under strictest secrecy for some time. She is very small—short and slender. She is, however, 20 years old, about the same age as Mat. She has very long eyelashes. She was presumed dead by Suroth, but Suroth took no chances: she sent parties out to find her, and kill her. Unfortunately for Suroth, Tuon intercepted one of her would-be assassins and ordered Suroth reduced to da'covale. Tuon has since declared herself Empress, and as such Tuon is considered dead—she took a new name, Fortuona, and at the moment she accepted that name, Tuon ceased to exist. This does not stop Mat from calling her that, of course: he thinks the use of such name changes to be frivolous or even pathological. See also Cauthon, Matrim; Daughter of the Nine Moons; Dorje, Anath; Empress (of Seanchan), The; Paendrag, Aurana; Paendrag, Chimal; Paendrag, Fortuona Athaem Devi; Paendrag, Radhanan; Paendrag, Ravashi; Selucia; Varuota.
  513. Huan Aladon, tGH, p. 497 (438)—Siuan Sanche's uncle. He liked to gamble. Siuan says that Mat reminds her of him. Huan died while rescuing children from a burning house.

    Chapter 35: Stedding Tsofu

    Healthy Tree icon
  514. Erith, tGH, p. 502 (443)—An Ogier from Stedding Tsofu, daughter of Iva daughter of Alar. She long wanted to marry Loial, and although he liked her, he avoided her for a long time because he was convinced she would not want to live the nomadic life such as he needed to lead for the next few years in order to write his book. Loial considers her quite beautiful, at least by Ogier standards. She and Loial were married some months ago. Erith is not a Treesinger, but she can still tell that the trees do not “feel” right due to the Dark One's touch. See also Alar; Iva; Loial.
  515. Iva, tGH, p. 502 (443)—Erith's mother, Alar's daughter. See also Alar; Erith.
  516. Alar, tGH, p. 502 (443)—Elder of Stedding Tsofu. She is Erith's grandmother. See also Erith; Iva.

    Chapter 36: Among the Elders

    Ogier icon
  522. Trayal, tGH, p. 514 (454)—One of the last Ogier to travel the Ways. His soul was consumed by Machin Shin, the Black Wind, and he now moves only if pushed and does not speak, hear, or otherwise notice the outside world. He was apparently a fine Treesinger before this happened. Interestingly enough, Verin was able to assess his condition despite the fact that she was in a stedding and unable to even sense the True Source, much less use it to probe for health.…
  523. Marisa Ayellin, tGH, p. 518—Pretty girl from Emond's Field. She comes with Verin and Alanna to become Aes Sedai. See also Ayellin, Neysa.
  524. Neysa Ayellin, tGH, p. (456)—Woman from Emond's Field. Nynaeve threw a pitcher at her when she was sixteen, after which Nynaeve was whipped badly. See also Ayellin, Marisa.

    Chapter 39: Flight From the White Tower

    Ogier icon
  526. Takima, tGH, p. 551 (484)—Sitter for the Brown Ajah for almost nine years. She fled Tar Valon when Siuan was deposed. She now sits with Lelaine's Sitters. She is short, and has long dark hair to her waist. Her skin is aged and ivory-colored, and she is often described as quiet and bird-like. She was the lone Brown present at the unannounced meeting of the Hall that Egwene managed to find out about anyway.
  527. Tarlomen, tGH, p. 553 (486)—Historical figure after which Tarlomen's Gate in Tar Valon is named.
  528. Suroth Sabelle Meldarath, tGH, p. 564 (496)—Formerly High Lady of Asinbayar and Barsabba, leader of Those Who Come Before. She had her head shaven on the sides and long, black hair in the middle. This is the typical Seanchan style for those “of the Blood.” Suroth was determined to redeem herself after High Lord Turak's mishap at Falme—she did not want to have to explain a failure that was not hers to the Empress. She gathered all of the Seanchan ships that fled Falme so they would not go back home; she then retook portions of the mainland again, but was prevented from taking Illian by Rand and his Asha'man. Egeanin delivered the Domination Band to Suroth herself, not knowing Suroth's true loyalties; known to few until the moment of her capture, Suroth was Atha'an Shadar, “Those Bound to Shadow” (a Darkfriend), and was high in their ranks. Suroth attempted to send Elbar to kill Tuon so that Suroth herself would become the legitimate ruler of the Seanchan this side of the Aryth Ocean. Tuon arrived carrying Elbar's head; she then made Suroth da'covale and handed her over to the Deathwatch Guards until such time that her hair is long enough that she could be properly sold. See also Aladon, Turak; Empress (of Seanchan), The; Paendrag, Tuon Athaem Kore.
  529. Renna Emain, tGH, p. 566 (498)—Sul'dam who was charged to train and control Egwene when she became damane. She later gave Egwene the nickname “Tuli, after one of [Renna's] former pets.” When Egwene escaped, she put an a'dam around Renna's neck, and left it there when she fled. Renna was later discovered by Bethamin, wretching from the effort of trying to remove the a'dam in vain. To protect the Seanchan way of life—which would likely collapse if it was learned that sul'dam could learn to channel—Renna retained her rank as sul'dam, but was forbidden to be linked with a damane. She was kept under close watch by Suroth. She was eventually spirited away by Mat, Egeanin, and the rest of the group that escaped Ebou Dar in the chaos. When she attempted to escape and warn the Seanchan of Mat's presence, Mat was forced to order her to be killed. She was killed by a crossbow bolt just before reaching the crest of the hill that would have meant her safety—and her betrayal of the Band of the Red Hand. Egwene still has nightmares of her time under Renna's captivity. See also al'Vere, Egwene; Tuli; Zarbey, Seta; Zeami, Bethamin.
  530. Zaired Elbar, tGH, p. 568 (500)—Servant of Suroth. Like his mistress, he is Atha'an Shadar, Those Bound to the Shadow. He is particularly good at disposing of bodies. See also Meldarath, Suroth Sabelle.
  531. Deain, tGH, p. 573 (503)—Aes Sedai that lived in the era of Artur Hawkwing and Luthair. She decided that her cause would be better served by serving Luthair, so she created an a'dam, a silver leash with bracelet and collar that can be used to control women who can channel. It is this device that is used by sul'dam to control damane. Eventually Luthair and his armies used Deain's own creation against her; when she herself was collared, it was said that her screams shook the Towers of Midnight.
  532. Alwhin, tGH, p. 574 (504)—Voice of the Blood, formerly in service of High Lady Suroth. She is a glowering woman. Originally a sul'dam, she was intended to be the Leash Holder for Nynaeve when she and Egwene were given to Suroth by Liandrin. She was later promoted to a Voice of the Blood, the first sul'dam to ascend to the Blood. It was thought unwise to leave her as a simple sul'dam; she found Renna and Seta, collared and helpless, and brought them to Suroth. Suroth hid them for the good of the Empire, and promoted Alwhin to a Voice of the Blood. Alwhin was killed by Liandrin by poison, which caused her eyes to bulge and her face to turn blue before the end. Liandrin killed her because she thought she could curry favor with Suroth by doing so. Suroth was not pleased. See also Liandrin; Meldarath, Suroth Sabelle.

  534. Mulaen, tGH, p. 596 (523)—Seanchan woman who Min considers to be an “old hag” and who says, “Everyone has a place in the Pattern, and the place of everyone should be readily apparent.” To make Min's place apparent, she dresses her as a servant.
  535. Pura, tGH, p. 598 (525)—Damane, formerly an Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah named Ryma Galfrey. She has been completely broken by her captivity. See Galfrey, Ryma. See also Galfrey, Ryma.
  536. Tuli, tGH, p. 601 (528)—Egwene's name as a damane. Bethamin went to check on her, the “girl with the remarkable affinity for metals and ores,” before the battle at Falme. When Bethamin arrived, she found the two sul'dam that Egwene and her rescuers captured. See al'Vere, Egwene; Emain, Renna. See also al'Vere, Egwene.

  538. Seta Zarbey, tGH, p. 626 (550)—Name of the sul'dam that Nynaeve collared before rescuing Egwene at Falme. Bethamin discovered her, wretching from the effort of trying to remove the a'dam in vain. To protect the Seanchan way of life—which would likely collapse if it was learned that sul'dam could learn to channel—Seta retained her rank as sul'dam, but was forbidden to be linked with a damane. She was kept under close watch by Suroth. She was eventually taken along with Mat and the others that left Ebou Dar. She has yellow hair. See also Emain, Renna.
  539. Huon, tGH, p. 635 (559)—Alternative or misspelling of Huan, Turak's main servant. See Aladon, Huan.

  542. Hardan, tGH, p. 654—A nation Ingtar says went to “useless oblivion,” a fate he did not wish to share. Editor's note: Hardan used to be the nation south of Shienar and north of Cairhien.

    Chapter 47: The Grave is No Bar to My Call

    Horn of Valere icon
  543. Birgitte, tGH, p. 660 (581)—Hero of Legend, bound to the Horn of Valere until Moghedien ripped her away. She has long blonde hair that she keeps in a braid, and is one of the best with bow and arrows in all of human history. During Nynaeve's struggle with Moghedien, Birgitte was ripped out of Tel'aran'rhiod and almost died. She would have if she had not been saved by Elayne, who bonded her as a Warder to give her the strength and quick healing she needed to survive. She is always linked to Gaidal Cain in the stories, and misses him immensely since he was spun out normally while she was ripped out. She lived four lives between the founding of the White Tower and the Trolloc Wars, one of which involved her and Gaidal Cain helping to found the Tower. She is slowly forgetting the details of those lives, which terrifies her. She has lived as a soldier, a forest woman, a general, a guard, a noble thief, a lady, a peasant, a killer, and a savior. This is, however, the first time she has been a Warder. She is nothing like the stories say she is supposed to be like, except that she is pretty. Her bond with Elayne appears to be different than most Warder bonds, possibly because Elayne and Birgitte are both women; they mirror each other's moods more, synchronize their cycles, and in general are linked more strongly to each other than most Warders to their Aes Sedai. See also al'Meara, Nynaeve; Cain, Gaidal; Joana; Maerion; Moondancer, Jethari; Trahelion, Birgitte; Trakand, Elayne.

    Chapter 6: The Hunt Begins

    Wheel of Time icon
  566. Sammael, tDR, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. During the War of the Shadow, he was one of the Shadow's greatest military commanders. His name means “Destroyer of Hope” in the Old Tongue. After being released from the Bore, he took up residence on the Council of Nine in Illian as Lord Brend, and effectively ruled the country. He wore a battle scar that he got while fighting Lews Therin Telamon during the War of the Shadow. He could have had it Healed, but kept it to remind himself of what Lews Therin had done to him. He is believed dead at the hands of Mashadar. See also Aellinsar, Tel Janin; Brend; Caddar.
  567. Asmodean, tDR, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. He was born Joar Addam Nessosin, a child prodigy in music and art, in the then coastal city of Shorelle. He gave his life to the Shadow in exchange for the immortality he received, so he could study and perfect his music. After being released from the Bore, he was coerced by Lanfear into coming with her, eventually to teach Rand to channel without killing himself. Asmodean was drawn to Rhuidean and the stash of angreal, ter'angreal, and most especially the two white statue ter'angreal that linked the holder to the great sa'angreal buried near Cairhien and on Tremalking, which together could Break the World beyond repair. He went there to obtain the male statue, but was thwarted by Rand, who severed his bonds to the Dark One. He then became Rand's teacher, and went into hiding from the rest of the Chosen, who would kill him on sight if they saw him. He was killed by Graendal right after Rahvin and Lanfear were killed/trapped. Demandred names him, and quickly discards the idea, as the possible identity of Lan. See also Joar Addam Nesossin; Natael, Jasin.
  568. Be'lal, tDR, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. After being released from the Bore, he took up residence in Tear as the High Lord Samon. He was killed by Moiraine in the Stone of Tear, just before Rand took Callandor. He had white hair at his temples, and was a Blademaster. Since he was destroyed by balefire, he is completely dead—not even the Dark One himself can bring him back. See also Samon.
  569. Rahvin, tDR, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. He was fond of using Compulsion, and was known for being a ladies' man—he always had a woman on his arm. After being released from the Bore, he took up residence in Caemlyn as Lord Gaebril, and used Compulsion to have Queen Morgase not only make him her advisor, but her lover as well. He eventually planned to take over the country directly as the first ever King of Andor—he did his best to weaken support for Morgase, exiling her supporters and befriending those who opposed her, finally chasing her from the country as well. Shortly after news of Morgase's death or at least abdication reached Cairhien, Rahvin was confronted and killed by Rand al'Thor in Tel'aran'rhiod with a weave of balefire strong enough to burn Rahvin's soul out of the pattern for days. Morgase was unaware until quite recently who Gaebril really was. See also Gaebril; Trakand, Morgase.

She had an extreme dislike for Wilders, and did not treat Siuan and Leane very well when they were stilled, either. She spent eight years as a novice, and five among the Accepted. She was among the four raised to full sisterhood by Egwene. She is still treated as an Accepted by most of the sisters. She swore to obey Egwene of her own volition, but she disappeared for a time. Lelaine admitted to holding her captive and pressing her “rather hard,” as penalty for spying on her. She was subseuquently ordered to accompany the embassy to the Black Tower; she is still looking for a Warder among the Dedicated and Soldiers. See also Dabei, Theodrin.

    Twisted Stone Dreaming Ring icon
  586. Rosel of Essam, tDR, p. 237 (187)—Someone who wrote books around the year 200 A.B. (after the Breaking). She claimed that over 100 pages of a book Verin has the sole surviving page of survived the Breaking; Verin has studied the one page that still survives thousands of times. The book supposedly contained secrets that Rosel thought the world was not prepared to face.
  587. Corianin Nedeal, tDR, p. 238 (188)—Last Dreamer in the White Tower; an Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She died almost 400 years ago. Almost all of the ter'angreal the Black Ajah stole from the Tower were last studied by her; they allow partial access to Tel'aran'rhiod, the World of Dreams. See also al'Vere, Egwene.

    Chapter 22: The Price of the Ring

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  588. Jaim Dawtry, tDR, p. 247 (196)—Young man from the Two Rivers. He serves as one of the guards at Perrin and Faile's tent. Jaim also made an appearance during Egwene's test for the Accepted: he brought Egwene and Rand al'Thor odd news from Baerlon: people were at war, fighting the “Shawkin,” “Sanchan,” or “something like that.”
  589. Joiya al'Thor, tDR, p. 248 (196)—Daughter of Rand and Egwene al'Thor in the world of the testing ter'angreal. See also al'Thor, Rand; al'Vere, Egwene; Byir, Joiya.
  590. Beldeine Nyram, tDR, p. 256 (203)—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She had no Warders, which is extremely unusual for a Green, for most of her life. She was raised to the shawl about three years ago, and as yet is too new to the shawl to have the ageless look. She was captured at Dumai's Wells and is now a prisoner of the Aiel. According to Min's viewing of her, she will bond one of the Asha'man as a Warder. She is pretty, and has high cheekbones and slightly tilted brown eyes. She often tries too hard to prove herself. She eventually bonded Karldin Manfor as her Warder. She died shortly after he did, both of them exhuasted from channeling as long as they had. See also Keeper of the Chronicles; Manfor, Karldin.
  591. Gyldan, tDR, p. 261 (207)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah who appears in Egwene's viewings inside the testing ter'angreal. She was Elaida's closest confidante and clearly also a Darkfriend (in the world of the ter'angreal, at least). She tried to stop Egwene from escaping from the Tower; Egwene folded her with a punch between the eyes, a move she was very glad Perrin taught her.

He was killed by Gawyn during the chaos surrounding Siuan Sanche's deposition and imprisonment. He taught Gawyn that it is a Warder's duty to offer challenge where his Aes Sedai's safety is concerned. Gawyn deeply regrets killing him. See also Coulin.
  593. Jearom, tDR, p. 286 (227)—The greatest Blademaster of all time. He fought over 10,000 times in battle and in single combat. He once defeated ten men all by himself. He was only defeated once—by a farmer with a quarterstaff.

    Lanfear's icon
  594. Amico Nagoyin, tDR, p. 292 (231)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah. She was stilled during capture after the taking of the Stone of Tear. She retains none of the cool self-possession that her co-captor Joiya possesses. She was the youngest of the Black sisters who left the Tower with Liandrin, barely old enough to wear the shawl.
  595. Joiya Byir, tDR, p. 292 (231)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the White. She lost none of her cool self-possession when changing her loyalties to the Shadow. She was captured by Egwene, Elayne, and Nynaeve after the taking of the Stone of Tear. She is the oldest of the Black sisters who left the Tower with Liandrin, old enough to be the grandmother of the girls who are hunting her. Note: in the original edition, Joiya was listed as White Ajah, but I have been told that this was changed to Gray in later editions. I have left it as White here.
  596. Rianna Andomeran, tDR, p. 293 (232)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the White. She was always a coldly arrogant killer. She has a white streak in her black hair above her left ear. Theodrin used her identity to infiltrate the Sharan encampment.
  597. Marrilin Gemalphin, tDR, p. 293 (232)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the Brown. Extremely fond of cats and of helping injured animals.

  598. Silvie, tDR, p. 316 (252)—Old woman Egwene meets in Tel'aran'rhiod. Ugly does not begin to describe her. She has a bony, pointed chin; a bony, sharp nose; and warts all over her face. She may be actually be Lanfear, disguising herself to protect her identity. See also Lanfear.

  611. Lord Gann, tDR, p. 383 (305)—One of the men who captured one of the Aiel and killed the other when they got too close to the city of Remen. He claimed there were twenty of them, when in fact there were only two.

  614. Gaul, tDR, p. 394 (315)—Aiel of the Imran sept of the Shaarad Aiel. He is Shae'en M'taal, a Stone Dog. Perrin rescued him from his entrapment in Remen, and Gaul now walks at Perrin's side during battle and elsewhere. He tells Perrin that he followed him initially because Perrin saved his life, but he stays for other reasons (presumably because he finds Perrin to be an honorable leader). Gaul wants to marry Chiad, but though she would agree to become his lover, she will not give up the spear for him. Once the Shaido captured her, Gaul became truly dedicated to recapturing her and bringing her back to him. He killed at least a dozen Aiel warriors to get to Chiad; he was somewhat disappointed to learn that Bain was gai'shain to one of them as well. Gaul has said he would consider accepting Bain as a wife just to get Chiad's bridal wreath, though he is not excited about the prospect. Since both Chiad and Bain are now gai'shain to Gaul for many months more, they have been using every opportunity to tease Gaul, from washing his undergarments to sharpening spears for him. Only a blind fool would believe Chiad does not share Gaul's feelings. See also Aybara, Perrin; Bain; Chiad; Sarien.
  615. Sarien, tDR, p. 396 (317)—The other Aiel who came with Gaul. He died, and Gaul was imprisoned. The villagers say there were twenty, but in reality there were only the two of them. See also Gaul.

  617. Zarine Bashere, tDR, p. 405 (324)—Daughter of Davram and Deira Bashere. She gave up the name to become a Hunter for the Horn, adopting the name Faile when she found out that Mandarb was taken—by Lan's horse. See Bashere, Faile. See also Bashere, Faile.
  618. Faile Bashere, tDR, p. 406 (324)—Young woman from Saldaea with long dark hair and dark eyes. She is the daughter of Davram and Deira Bashere, their oldest surviving offspring. Her two older brothers were killed, and when Davram sent her younger brother off to fight while keeping her at home, she ran away and swore the oath of a Hunter of the Horn in Illian. When she became a Hunter, she renounced her old name, Zarine, at first considering adopting the name “Mandarb”—she chose Faile when she found that Mandarb was the name of Lan's horse. She fell in love with Perrin Aybara while on her search for the Horn, who told her that the Horn had been found. She was shocked, but even more so to find out that Rand was the Dragon Reborn and that both he and Perrin are ta'veren. Faile stayed near Perrin, and finally accompanied him to the Two Rivers where she helped fend off the Trolloc attacks; the two were married shortly afterwards. They were then proclaimed Lord and Lady of the Two Rivers. Perrin hated the idea, but Faile insisted they have a modest estate, and even servants, which she trained herself. Her name means “falcon” in the Old Tongue; she is the falcon in Min's viewings of Perrin. She is very protective of her blacksmith, and does whatever she can to make sure he not so much as looks at another woman, even though he has no intention of doing so. She is a very jealous wife, especially toward people like Berelain who eye her husband all the time. She even cornered Min when they first came to Caemlyn and Perrin greeted her warmly, to make sure Min had no intentions toward him. She left with Perrin for Ghealdan to find Masema, and while he was away her party was ambushed by the Shaido Aiel and she was taken gai'shain by them. She and the servants captured with her attempted to escape, but were betrayed by Galina Casban. She was now a personal servant of Sevanna, and she seemed to be one of Sevanna's favorites—for both service and punishment. She is a natural leader, even earning the respect and obedience of Alliandre, the Queen of Ghealdan, and Morgase, the former Queen of Andor (though she does not know Morgase's true identity). Alliandre, Morgase, and Faile were rescued by the Mera'din, the Brotherless, Aiel men traveling with the Shaido when the left the Three-Fold Land. Their rescue coincided with Perrin's attack on the Shaido encampment, resulting in the deaths of many of the Aielmen. Now that she has been rescued, Faile has taken it upon herself to do the things her husband is unable or unwilling to do—first among them, killing Masema, the Prophet. She has since been trying to patch things up with Berelain, attempting to deal with the rumors about inappropriate relations between her and Perrin.

    Chapter 37: Fires in Cairhien

    Cairhien icon
  619. Ellisor, tDR, p. 421 (337)—Captain of the Blue Crane, the ship Egwene, Elayne, and Nynaeve take to Tear. He was anxious to get rid of the three passengers, since they always seemed to be seasick.
  620. Bennae Nalsad, tDR, p. 425 (340)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah who teaches history in the White Tower. She is slender in a bony sort of way. Her dark hair is streaked with gray, and she keeps it in a bun. Like many Browns, her clothing is out of date. She once said that Andor and Cairhien fought in more wars with each other than any two nations besides Tear and Illian. She grew up in Shienar. Her quarters are filled with books, and there are skeletons of various animals in various stages of assembly everywhere, including a complete human skeleton, so that there is barely room to walk. She is slender in a bony way. She typically wears dresses that went out of fashion a century or two ago. Egwene suggested that there was a thirteenth Depository in the Tower library; when Bennae began to ask questions about such a Depository, her Ajah's higher-ups became hysterical. She has all but offered Egwene a place in the Brown Ajah.

    Chapter 38: Maidens of the Spear

    Wheel of Time icon
  621. Aviendha, tDR, p. 432 (346)—Aiel of the Nine Valleys sept of the Taardad Aiel. Formerly a Maiden of the Spear, she was forced to give up the spear to become a Wise One because she had the ability to channel inborn. Her spears were melted down into other objects, which themselves could not be weapons, to be given away as gifts to the people she hated most—the metal from one spear is now used in a belt buckle for Rand al'Thor. She has green eyes, and is of age with Rand and Mat. She is more than pretty with dark reddish hair. Aviendha is one of the three women in Min's viewing of Rand—she also saw that she was to fall in love with him when she went through the three rings in Rhuidean. She denied her feelings for him at first, but when the wagons crossed the Dragonwall toward Cairhien, sweat tents became unavailable and she tried bathing as “wetlanders” did; Rand came in as she was standing before the bath in her skin, and she panicked. She created a Traveling gateway to southern Seanchan (she does not remember how), trying to get as far away from Rand as possible, into the middle of winter. When Rand rescued her, she decided she could not hide her feelings any longer, and the two ended up spending the night in each other's arms before coming back. Aviendha sais a similar incident would not occur, and punished any Maiden who made a crack about it (how they found out about something that occurred on the far side of the world on another continent is a different subject entirely). She felt toh toward Elayne for violating her trust, but upon hearing that Elayne would consent to being her sister-wife, Aviendha felt empowered to show her feelings for Rand once again. She is not certain what she thinks of a second sister-wife in Min, but she seems to accept the idea at least. She has been having trouble learning Traveling again; the way Elayne forms the weave is different from how she used it to get to Seanchan, and it is difficult to learn something once you already learned it another way. She has, however, mastered the art of untying weaves—a feat which was thought impossible by all Aes Sedai, as well as the Forsaken. She and Elayne have adopted each other as first-sisters. Aviendha has a special ability in making wards against eavesdropping; it is unlikely even the Forsaken could breach one of her wards, and certainly no one could do so without her knowing it immediately. While Aviendha was staying with Elayne at the Royal Palace in Caemlyn, she was summoned away by the Wise Ones to complete her training. While in the Palace, she discovered a new Talent: the ability to sense the function of a ter'angreal simply by holding it in her hands. Aviendha was very frustrated by the Wise Ones' treatment of her when she returned from her stay with Elayne; they seemed to be punishing her for no reason she could ascertain, and continually asked her opinion of matters as if to test her responses. It turned out that this was the last part of her training to become a Wise One: she must tell the Wise Ones she is one of them, or at least demand to be treated as an equal by them. They were pushing her harder and faster than they typically push apprentices because they had no time: she was needed at the Last Battle, and they had no time to wait for her to become ready on her own. She later went to Rhuidean, going through the crystal columns that are the ter'angreal of Aiel history. She expected she knew what she will find there, and was not looking forward to watching what she perceived to be the failure of her people. She was correct: she knew what she would see. Almost by accident, she entered the columns a second time, witnessing events she could only identify as being from the future: the lives of her four children, an Aiel–Seanchan war, and the gradual destruction of the Aiel as a people. She was horrified by her vision, and is determined to change something in it, just to prove to herself that the future is not pre-determined. She knew her visions would be met with confusion, but not the unpleasant silence that has actually resulted.

  622. Bain, tDR, p. 434 (347)—Maiden of the Spear of the Black Rock sept of the Shaarad Aiel. She has flame-colored hair and dark blue eyes. She is first-sister to Chiad, of the Goshien Aiel; the two had to sneak through the camp of the other to find the Wise Ones to become first sisters, since their clans were in blood feud at the time. She later became one of the Maidens who accompanied Faile, a similar honor guard to what Rand has, although smaller and for different reasons. She and Chiad were both captured by the Shaido along with the rest of Faile's company, and made gai'shain. She has refused Faile's offer of escape once her plan is ready; she vows to serve her year and a day, as prescribed by ji'e'toh, and then walk away. She and Chiad are now gai'shain to Gaul; Gaul groaned when he found that Bain was gai'shain to one of the men he had to kill to save Chiad. She and Chiad have been having fun at Gaul's expense in their service to him. Gaul suspects Sightblinder would be a less infuriating gai'shain. He also thinks she would laugh all the way back to the Three-fold Land if she saw Perrin take two of the Shadowsworn Aiel captive. See also Chiad; Gaul.
  623. Chiad, tDR, p. 434 (347)—Maiden of the Spear of the Stones River sept of the Goshien Aiel. She is short for an Aiel woman, and has blonde hair and gray eyes. Gaul wants her to marry him, but she will not give up the spear. She is willing to be his lover, but marriage is out of the question (or so she says). She is first-sister to Bain, and the two served as a sort of honor guard for Faile. She and Bain were captured along with Faile by the Shaido and made gai'shain. She refused Faile's offer of escape; she will serve her year and a day, as prescribed by ji'e'toh, and then walk away. The Shaido to which she was sworn was killed by Gaul during the battle; Gaul had to kill about a dozen Aiel warriors in order to get to Chiad, and was somewhat disappointed to find that Bain was also gai'shain to one of them. Chiad is little more than a finger taller than her adopted first-sister. She and Bain are using every opportunity to give Gaul a proverbial poke in the ribs while in his service—he suspects that Sightblinder would be a less infuriating gai'shain. She currently serves Gaul by serving in Perrin's camp. See also Bain; Gaul.
  624. Jolien, tDR, p. 436 (349)—A Maiden of the Spear. She is part of Rand's honor guard. See also Jolien.
  625. Dailin, tDR, p. 436 (349)—Wise One of the Shaido Aiel, loyal to Sevanna. She was among those who dismembered Desaine.

  628. Rhuarc, tDR, p. 455 (365)—Tall, broad-shouldered, blue-eyed clan chief of the Taardad Aiel. He has gray streaks in his red hair. He has two wives: Amys, a Wise One, and Lian, roofmistress of Cold Rocks Hold. Rand put him in charge of Cairhien along with Berelain, but Cairhien has now been turned over to local government. Rhuarc and many members of his clan brought order (if not precisely peace) to Arad Doman at Rand's command. He has since Traveled with Rand to Tear, and now wears the red headband of the siswai'aman (spears of the Dragon), despite being a clan chief. See also Amys; Lian; sur Paendrag Paeron, Berelain; Ronam.

She can channel, but still has prematurely white hair. She is also a Dreamwalker. She was evidently very stubborn and proud as an apprentice, taking longer than almost anyone (except Aviendha) to reach the point of demanding respect from the Wise Ones, thereby completing her training. See also al'Vere, Egwene; Aviendha; Bair; Lian; Melaine; Rhuarc.
  633. Bair, tDR, p. 456 (365)—Wise One of the Haido sept of the Shaarad Aiel. She is very old, and has watery blue eyes. A Dreamwalker, she was one of Egwene's teachers. She has been married before, but her husbands are dead. Bair is the only Aiel who traveled with Rhuarc and Bael who is not Taardad or Goshien. She volunteered to go through Rhuidean's columns a second time to confirm Aviendha's visions of a possible future.
  634. Melaine, tDR, p. 456 (365)—Wise One of the of the Jhirad sept of the Goshien Aiel. She is a Dreamwalker, and was one of Egwene's teachers. She can channel. She swore she would never love a man, but changed her mind later and married Bael, her clan chief, thus becoming sister-wife to Dorindha. She has sun-colored hair and green eyes. She is soon—very soon—to be the mother of twin daughters, whom she has decided to name Min and Egwene, after the woman who knew of them first and her favorite student, respectively.

  644. Lord Gaebril, tDR, p. 528 (423)—Man who came to Caemlyn just as riots sprang up throughout the city. He joined and led the faction that restored order in the city, and upon Morgase's return, he gave her her kingdom in one piece, as it was when she left. Allegedly, she was so happy that he had done this that she made Gaebril her new advisor. However, during Mat's trip through Caemlyn to deliver Elayne's letter, Mat overheard Gaebril ordering someone to kill Elayne and anyone else with her—he tried to find a way to report this information to Morgase, but ended up telling Elayne. Gaebril was discovered to be Rahvin, one of the Forsaken, who has a preference to having pretty women around him. His “pretty woman” was Morgase, and he planned to wrest control of Andor from her. Morgase realized he was controlling her and left the country so quickly a rumor sprang up that she had been killed; when Caemlyn was taken by Rand and Rahvin killed, the rumor changed to say that Rand had killed Morgase, instead of Gaebril. The twelve guards who betrayed Caemlyn by reopening the Waygate had rejected Gaebril—this was likely to cover up their loyalty to the Shadow in case he fell. See also Comar; Rahvin; Trakand, Morgase.

    Andoran Lion icon
  645. Comar, tDR, p. 535 (429)—One of the two men Mat overhears while inside the palace in Caemlyn.

He was considering Elaida's offer of support if he declared himself king of Tear, until he was made the Steward for the Dragon Reborn in Tear. Rand figures that this would keep the nobles scheming among themselves so much that they would not have time to make trouble for him. Rand later made Darlin the first King of Tear in memory.

She is a very capable ruler, willing to do almost anything to preserve the welfare and independence of her people. She is tall, pretty, young, and has black hair.

They did not, of course; Perrin was simply taken into her tent until he recovered from illness. She and Faile have worked things out between themselves, defusing the rumors.

After being released from the Bore, Moghedien eventually found herself in Tanchico, in the Palace of the Panarch of Tarabon. While there, she chanced upon Nynaeve al'Meara, who was trying to save the Panarch at the time and take the seal on the Dark One's prison from its hold in the Palace. She and Nynaeve fought in a duel to the last, and Nynaeve managed to better Moghedien, much to the surprise of both of them.

On her third encounter with Nynaeve, Nynaeve managed to trap Moghedien with an a'dam. Moghedien remained bound by that a'dam in Salidar, disguised as Marigan, but was released by Halima. Halima was actually one of the Forsaken, and she took Moghedien to Shayol Ghul to be bound by a coursouvra, a Mind Trap, controlled by Moridin.

  734. Soran Milo, tSR, p. 357—Author of Killers of the Black Veil. In one part he describes the Portal Stone near Rhuidean, as told him by a peddler.

  735. Heirn, tSR, p. 370 (329)—Sept chief of the Jindo Sept of the Taardad Aiel.
  736. Couladin, tSR, p. 371 (330)—Self-appointed chief of the Shaido Aiel after the death of its last true chief, Suladric. He never went to Rhuidean, but declared himself the Car'a'carn after Asmodean placed two dragons on his arms in a copy of those on Rand's arms. When the rest of the Aiel chiefs declared for Rand, Couladin took the Shaido west across the Spine of the World to ravage Cairhien. Although almost every other clan despises the Shaido, all agree that even they deserved a real chief—they never got one. Couladin died outside Cairhien while fighting Mat Cauthon—Mat killed him, but later remarked that Couladin had to have been born with a spear in his hands to be that good. Mat later described the encounter by saying, “One of us had to die. It wasn't bloody well going to be me.” After his death, the remnants of Couladin's clan fled to Kinslayer's Dagger under the command of his widow, Sevanna. His head was placed on a pike while Mat's troops danced around it and the rest of the Aiel spit on it. See also Car'a'carn; He Who Comes With the Dawn; Muradin; Sevanna; Suladric.
  737. Suladric, tSR, p. 371 (330)—Last true chief of the Shaido Aiel, and Sevanna's first husband. They were married when Sevanna was only sixteen. After his death, Muradin went to Rhuidean to become his successor and failed; Couladin then declared himself to be the chief of the Shaido despite being refused permission to enter Rhuidean. Suladric's death set off what may some day be called the Shaido War in Cairhien. See also Couladin; Muradin; Sevanna.
  738. Muradin, tSR, p. 371 (330)—Man who was to succeed Suladric as chief of the Shaido Aiel. He went to Rhuidean at the same time Rand did. Rand saw Muradin while inside the ter'angreal; he had gouged his own eyes out, and was rapidly dying inside the columns. He never emerged. See also Couladin; Sevanna; Suladric.
  739. Coedelin, tSR, p. 377 (335)—Wise One who supervised Amys's training as a Wise One.

  742. Mandein, tSR, p. 405 (361)—The man Rand becomes on his first step into the stone columns in Rhuidean. He is Sealdre's husband. See also Comran; Rhodric; Sealdre.
  743. Sealdre, tSR, p. 405 (361)—Wife of Mandein. She has long, golden hair. See also Comran; Mandein; Rhodric.
  744. Comran, tSR, p. 406 (362)—Mandein's greatfather. He was the one who found Ogier stedding in the Dragonwall and commenced trade with them. See also Mandein; Rhodric.
  745. Rhodric, tSR, p. 406 (362)—Comran's greatfather. He led the Aiel to kill armored soldiers who crossed the Spine of the World. He is also the person through whose eyes Rand sees in his second step through the columns of Rhuidean. See also Comran; Jeordam; Mandein.
  746. Dermon, tSR, p. 407 (363)—Tall, white-haired man of the Jenn Aiel. He is a spokesman for the Jenn.

  750. Jeordam, tSR, p. 409 (365)—Aiel from Rand's second step through the columns of Rhuidean. He is Rhodric's greatfather. See also Rhodric.
  751. Garam, tSR, p. 409 (365)—Aielman in the lead of the men with lances Rhodric encounters. He is part of the vision Rand sees in the second step through the columns of Rhuidean.
  752. Lewin, tSR, p. 413 (368)—Tall, graying Aiel that Rand sees on his third step through the columns of Rhuidean. In that vision, he never smiled. In later viewings, Lewin was the man who violated the Way of the Leaf by killing the men who kidnapped his family and would have killed him. All of the Aiel (with the exception of the Jenn) are most likely descendants of him and the other boys with him; they will never touch a sword (since a sword can only be used to kill a man), but since Lewin killed with a spear, the Aiel prefer spears as their primary weapons. See also al'Caar, Adan; Maigran; Saralin.
  753. Morin, tSR, p. 413 (368)—Yellow-haired Aiel woman from Rand's third step through the columns of Rhuidean. She relates the losses that their clan incurred when the men with swords came through.
  754. Kirin, tSR, p. 414 (369)—Morin's daughter. She was kidnapped by the people with swords.
  755. Luca, tSR, p. 416 (371)—Aiel who is with Lewin in Rand's fourth step through the columns of Rhuidean. He has big shoulders and is quite fond of tricks.
  756. Gearan, tSR, p. 416 (371)—Lanky Aielman who comes with Lewin in Rand's fourth step through the columns of Rhuidean. He was the best runner among the wagons.

  765. Jaren, tSR, p. 421 (376)—One of Adan's sons. He threw himself off a cliff at age nineteen when he found that he could channel. See also al'Caar, Adan.
  766. Marind, tSR, p. 421 (377)—Adan's daughter. She died the morning her sister Rhea was captured. See also al'Caar, Adan; Rhea.

  768. Sulwin, tSR, p. 422 (377)—The leader of the group of Aiel who demanded that Adan do something about their wagon burdens, etc. that they were charged with keeping safe. He and some other of his group grew their hair long in hope of disguising the fact that they were Aiel. The group eventually decides that they want to go their own way, effectively separating from the Aiel—the Aiel deemed them “Lost.” These “Lost Ones” are now known as the Tuatha'an, the Traveling People. They still follow the Way of the Leaf, just as the Aiel once did.
  769. Jonai, tSR, p. 424 (379)—An Aiel who appears in Rand's sixth step through the columns of Rhuidean. See also Charn; Coumin; Esole; Willim.
  770. Alnora, tSR, p. 424 (379)—A woman who Jonai wishes were alive to interpret dreams and possibly predict which action he should take. She had glossy black hair.
  771. Willim, tSR, p. 424 (379)—A man from Rand's sixth step through the columns of Rhuidean who was sent away from the Aiel clan because he found he could channel saidin. He was Jonai's son. See also Esole; Jonai.
  772. Esole, tSR, p. 424 (379)—Son of Jonai. He died of the Wasting Sickness that eventually kills all men who can channel. See also Jonai; Willim.
  773. Solinda, tSR, p. 426 (381)—Aes Sedai who Jonai hopes will believe him when he says that he tried to do what they asked. She has sun-red hair. She is the one who made Jonai promise to keep the Way of the Leaf—he was shocked that she would even suggest giving it up. Editor's note: it is quite possible that Solinda had a Foretelling (or at least heard of one) that indicated the Aiel would give up the Way.
  774. Oselle, tSR, p. 427 (382)—Aes Sedai from Rand's seventh step through the columns of Rhuidean who was at the meeting where the Aes Sedai discussed the final fate of Callandor and the Dragon Banner.
  775. Deindre, tSR, p. 427 (382)—Aes Sedai from Rand's seventh step through the columns of Rhuidean who was at the meeting where the Aes Sedai discussed the final fate of Callandor and the Dragon Banner. She had a Foretelling concerning future meetings.
  776. Jaric Mondoran, tSR, p. 428 (382)—Man who will arrive at the meeting between the Aes Sedai during Rand's seventh step through the columns of Rhuidean. It is presumed he was able to channel, and will assist them in keeping the two items safe from men who can channel in the future (until the Dragon is Reborn). One of the Aes Sedai present points out that there can be no mistakes since he and Haindar are due to arrive the next day. Jaric killed a group of Aiel who tried to turn him to the Way of the Leaf by singing to him, which caused the Aes Sedai to be wary of his sanity (or lack thereof). See also Haindar.
  777. Haindar, tSR, p. 428 (382)—Man who will arrive at the meeting between the Aes Sedai during Rand's seventh step through the columns of Rhuidean. It is presumed he was able to channel, and will assist them in keeping the two items safe from men who can channel in the future (until the Dragon is Reborn). One of the Aes Sedai present points out that there can be no mistakes since he and Jaric are due to arrive the next day. See also Mondoran, Jaric.
  778. Someshta, tSR, p. 428 (382)—A Nym who is present at the meeting of the Aes Sedai over the Dragon Banner and Callandor in Rand's seventh step through the columns of Rhuidean. The Nym are a race of people that grow things wherever they touch. Someshta is the last of the Nym, and the Aes Sedai asked him to watch over the Eye of the World for them until the Eye is used for its intended purpose (which was done when Rand drew on the pool of saidin and killed two Forsaken). See also Green Man.
  779. Coumin, tSR, p. 429 (383)—Jonai's father. He is hiding in the city during Rand's seventh step through the columns of Rhuidean. Coumin broke the Covenant by taking up arms against those attacking the city. See also Charn; Jonai.
  780. Kodam, tSR, p. 429 (384)—Man Oselle is afraid to trust. He is young and not yet touched by the taint, or so the Aes Sedai hope.
  781. Charn, tSR, p. 431 (386)—Coumin's greatfather during Rand's eighth step through the columns of Rhuidean. Everyone thinks he is crazy because he tells of a time when Lanfear was not evil. He actually was one of her servants when she was an Aes Sedai, and was intrigued by the “new source of the One Power” that Mierin (i.e., Lanfear) had discovered, until he found out that that source was the Dark One's prison. See also Coumin; Eronaile, Mierin; Nalla.
  782. Dark Lord of the Grave, tSR, p. 431 (386)—Ancient name for the Dark One, used in the time period around the War of the Shadow. See Shai'tan.
  783. Tomada, tSR, p. 433 (386)—Ogier present at the seedsinging during Rand's eighth step through the columns of Rhuidean. He asked the soldier what the news was, and he told him that Lews Therin Telamon and the Hundred Companions had resealed the Dark One's prison with the Forsaken inside.
  784. Toma, tSR, p. 434 (388)—Man who strikes Coumin on the way to the city. He believed that Coumin was a Darkfriend because his father, Charn, claimed to have served Lanfear (before she was called Lanfear). See also Charn; Eronaile, Mierin.
  785. Nalla, tSR, p. 435 (389)—Woman who Charn plans to marry during Rand's ninth step through the columns of Rhuidean. He had put her off for nearly a year because he didn't want to settle down. See also Charn; Zorelle.
  786. Zorelle, tSR, p. 435 (389)—Aes Sedai that Nalla serves in Rand's ninth step through the columns of Rhuidean. Charn would serve her as well if he married Nalla. See also Charn; Nalla.
  787. Mierin Eronaile, tSR, p. 435 (389)—Real name of Lanfear that she was called during the Age of Legends. Like the Forsaken she became, Mierin was ever power-hungry; she loved Lews Therin because he was powerful, not because she loved him, and even unwittingly bored into the Dark One's prison searching for more power. She has worked her way into Rand's personal dreams several times, and he still dreams of her, unbidden. See also Beidomon; Charn; Lanfear; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  788. Jom, tSR, p. 436 (390)—Man who knocks Charn over by mistake. He apologized when he realized that Charn was Aiel.
  789. Beidomon, tSR, p. 436 (390)—Male Aes Sedai who assisted Mierin in tapping the new source of Power that she had discovered. It is not known whether the two knew that they were actually boring into the Dark One's prison, but all evidence seems to indicate that they did not. See also Eronaile, Mierin.

    Chapter 28: To the Tower of Ghenjei

  790. Jheran, tSR, p. 457 (410)—Clan chief of the Shaarad Aiel. He was formerly Sovin Nai, a Knife Hand. He and Bael finally ended the centuries of blood feud between the Shaarad and Goshien Aiel, which Janduin attempted to stop and Rand finally did.
  791. Colinda, tSR, p. 457 (409)—Wise One with penetrating eyes. She is slender. Sorilea sent her to search the Royal Library of Cairhien, and upon return she joined the rest of the Aiel in the camp in watching the captured Aes Sedai.
  792. Slayer, tSR, p. 461 (413)—Man who appears, in the flesh, to Perrin and the wolves in Tel'aran'rhiod. He is described by those who serve the Shadow and know what he is as, “the man with two souls.” Perrin once hunted him, chasing him through Tel'aran'rhiod all the way to the Tower of Ghenjei. He did not see much of him for months afterward, though Slayer has been busy again in recent weeks: he enjoys killing wolves, considering them good sport. The Shadow uses his ability to enter and leave the World of Dreams at will to assassinate people thought important to the Light's cause. He once tried to kill Rand and Min in their sleep, though he had the wrong room. Slayer is Isam, Lan's cousin, and his other soul is Luc, whose form he seems to prefer in the real world. Luc is Rand's uncle, which Luc is aware of but Rand is not. The wolves describe his scent as “inhuman,” like a man mixed with stone. Slayer, in Isam's form, is muscular and tanned, with thick arms, dark hair, and blue eyes. He closely resembles Lan, his face all angles and sharp lines. Slayer, as Isam, enjoys the hunt. Slayer, as Luc, is more accommodating. Slayer, as either soul, hates Perrin with a rabid passion. See also Chiendelna, Luc; Mantear, Luc.
  793. Young Bull, tSR, p. 461 (413)—What the wolves call Perrin. See Aybara, Perrin.

  798. Eward Congar, tSR, p. 476 (427)—Citizen of Emond's Field who “fawns” over the Whitecloaks. Like many members of his family, Eward tends to take the side of whoever he thinks is strongest, regardless of their agenda.
  799. Lord Luc Chiendelna, tSR, p. 478 (429)—An alleged Hunter of the Horn who stops in Emond's Field. He was trying to find the Horn of Valere, which he says he thinks is somewhere in the Mountains of Mist, and stopped in Emond's Field to “help” the people defend themselves against the Whitecloaks. Perrin discovered that he was in fact Slayer, the hybrid of crossruf("Luc","Luc Mantear") and Isam Mandragoran, when he shot Slayer in the Wolf Dream and Luc appeared in the real world with an arrow wound in his chest. See also Mandragoran, Isam; Mantear, Luc; Slayer.

  802. Joelin, tSR, p. 506 (455)—One of two Whitecloaks killed in a skirmish with Trollocs. Dain thinks it more than coincidence that Joelin and Gomanes were the only ones killed; he had sent the two of them to make certain Ordeith was not creating havoc.
  803. Gomanes, tSR, p. 506 (455)—One of two Whitecloaks killed in a skirmish with Trollocs. Dain thinks it more than coincidence that Joelin and Gomanes were the only ones killed; he had sent the two of them to make certain Ordeith was not creating havoc.

    Chapter 32: Questions to Be Asked

    Dragon's Fang icon
  804. Wit al'Seen, tSR, p. 519 (468)—Jac al'Seen's cousin. Jac took his family in because Wit's farm was too close to the Westwood, and thus likely to be attacked by Trollocs.
  805. Flann Lewin, tSR, p. 519 (468)—Lanky man from near Watch Hill. He now travels with Perrin, serving as a longbowman.
  806. Astelle al'Seen, tSR, p. 519 (468)—Oldest of the al'Seen family. She uses her cane to thump people who are in her way more often than to walk with.
  807. Laila (née Dearn) Lewin, tSR, p. 520 (468)—Stout young woman staying with Jac al'Seen on his farm. Perrin remembers her as a slim girl “who could dance three boys into the ground.” Perrin used to dream about marrying her, and she him; Perrin let go of the idea before she did. She is now married to Natley Lewin, and has a small child. See also Lewin, Natley.
  808. Natley Lewin, tSR, p. 520 (468)—Laila's pudgy husband. He never could dance, which surprises Perrin, since his wife always loved to. See also (née Dearn) Lewin, Laila.
  809. Win Lewin, tSR, p. 525 (473)—Lanky boy that runs in to announce Lord Luc's arrival at the al'Seen farm. Perrin is not certain of his identity, however; boys grow quickly at his age.

    Chapter 33: A New Weave in the Pattern

    Wheel of Time icon
  810. Jon Gaelin, tSR, p. 532 (479)—Farmer who lives on the North Road near Watch Hill in the Two Rivers. Jac al'Seen planned to reach his farm before sunset the day Perrin convinced him to leave for Emond's Field. He is now a longbowman with Perrin's army.
  811. Bandry (Ban) al'Seen, tSR, p. 535 (482)—Dannil Lewin's cousin. He looks just like him except for a pickaxe nose and long thin mustaches in the Domani style. He now serves under Tam, and at times even guards his tent.
  812. Tell Lewin, tSR, p. 535 (482)—Young man from Emond's Field, now one of Perrin's soldiers. A bean-pole of a man with a thick mustache in the Taraboner style. He is Dannil's brother. See also al'Seen, Bandry; Lewin, Dannil; Lewin, Flann; Lewin, Tell.
  813. Hu Marwin, tSR, p. 537 (484)—Man from Emond's Field. He is an excellent woodsman, and now travels with Perrin under Dannil's leadership.
  814. Jaim Torfinn, tSR, p. 537 (484)—Young man from the Two Rivers, now a Soldier in the Black Tower. He was the best shot among Perrin's recruits before going to the Asha'man. He is spindly, and has dark brown hair.
  815. Kenley Ahan, tSR, p. 537 (484)—One of Perrin's recruits. He knows his way around Watch Hill better than anyone else in the group. See also Ahan, Kenley.
  816. Haim, tSR, p. 546 (492)—One of Perrin's recruits. Jordan may have meant to say “Jaim,” as in Jaim Torfinn, but one really can't say.

    Chapter 34: He Who Comes With The Dawn

    Dragon icon
  817. Car'a'carn, tSR, p. 552 (498)—According to the Prophecy of Rhuidean, the man destined to unite the clans of the Aiel. The term means “Chief of Chiefs” in the Old Tongue. The Car'a'carn, according to the Prophecy, would be announced to the Aiel by not one, but two dragons on his forearms upon leaving Rhuidean. The Car'a'carn has arrived in the person of Rand al'Thor. See also al'Thor, Rand; Coramoor; Dragon Reborn; He Who Comes With the Dawn.
  818. Shaiel, tSR, p. 561 (506)—Rand's biological mother. She chose the name herself, never giving another to the Aiel who met her. It means, “Woman who is Dedicated.” She abandoned a son she loved and a husband she did not because Gitara Moroso told her disaster would strike Andor and the world if she did not become a Maiden of the Spear, telling no one. After a year she was adopted into the Chumai sept of the Taardad Aiel. Shaiel became pregnant during the Aiel War, and gave birth to a son, after which she died. Later, Rand found that Shaiel's true identity was Tigraine, the Daughter-Heir of Andor who disappeared without a trace. See also al'Thor, Kari; al'Thor, Rand; Damodred, Tigraine; Janduin; Moroso, Gitara.
  819. Janduin, tSR, p. 563 (508)—Rand's biological father, an Aiel of the Iron Mountain sept of the Taardad Aiel. He was the youngest clan chief of the Taardad Aiel in memory. He ended the blood feud between the Taardad and Nakai clans after over 200 years of fighting, and then allied not only with the Nakai, but with the Reyn Aiel as well (who were not much better than blood enemies before the alliance was made). He almost ended the blood feud between the Shaarad and Goshien clans (which still existed until only a short time ago, causing trouble for Chiad and Gaul), and would have if King Laman would not have cut down Avendoraldera. He loved Shaiel, to the point where he could not refuse to let her fight in the Aiel War despite being with child. It was Janduin himself who led the four clans; Taardad, Nakai, Reyn, and Shaarad; across the Spine of the World to punish Laman for his Sin, throwing the entire World into war and allowing Prophecy to be fulfilled. The fact that Rand never knew Janduin lends Rand hope for his own children. See also al'Thor, Rand; Damodred, Tigraine; Shaiel.

She gives Mat a smile on his way by—she was one of the ones who convinced him to play a game of Maidens' Kiss. She has red hair. Note: there are two Aiel women named Dorindha; this one is a Maiden of the Spear, and the other is the wife of Bael, clan chief of the Goshien Aiel. Do not confuse them. See also Dorindha.
  821. Hadnan Kadere, tSR, p. 590 (531)—Merchant who is absorbed into the group moving through the Waste from Rhuidean. He is a Darkfriend, and came into the Waste with two odd traveling companions, Keille Shaogi and Jasin Natael. He is a dark, bulky man from Saldaea. See also Isendre; Natael, Jasin; Shaogi, Keille.
  822. Keille Shaogi, tSR, p. 592 (533)—Kadere's business partner when he ventured into the Waste. She was actually Lanfear disguised as a fat woman. See also Eronaile, Mierin; Kadere, Hadnan; Lanfear; Selene.

  823. Adelin, tSR, p. 597 (538)—One of the Maidens on guard at Rand's door.

Very flirtatious, she uses her physical attractiveness to lure men into telling her things they wouldn't otherwise say. She is a Darkfriend. Mat thinks he might like it if a group of women like her guarded him as tightly as the Maidens guard Rand. See also Kadere, Hadnan.
  825. Jasin Natael, tSR, p. 607 (547)—Gleeman/bard to the Dragon Reborn and his teacher. He has dark hair, and is taller than most non-Aiel men. He came into the Waste with Hadnan Kadere's wagons. He is actually Asmodean, but Rand dares not reveal even a hint of his true identity to anyone for fear that they will kill him for what he is, even though he is the only man who can teach Rand to channel. See also Asmodean; Joar Addam Nesossin; Kadere, Hadnan.
  826. Midean, tSR, p. 610 (550)—Man after which Midean's Ford is named.
  827. Aedomon, tSR, p. 610 (550)—Man who led the Saferi down on unsuspecting Manetheren years ago. See also Buiryn.
  828. Buiryn, tSR, p. 610 (550)—King of Manetheren when Aedomon attacked. He met Aedomon's charge at Midean's Ford, the subject of a song that Jasin Natael sings to the Aiel. Due to the memories of other men's lives Mat gained from the Eelfinn, he remembers that the story was not as perfect as it is now told. See also Aedomon.

    Chapter 38: Hidden Faces

    Women in a Mirror icon
  829. Selindrin, tSR, p. 617 (557)—Proprietress at the Garden of the Silver Breezes, an inn in Tanchico where Egeanin stays. She has dark hair done in dozens of narrow braids.
  830. Leilwin, tSR, p. 619 (558)—Pseudonym used by Egeanin to conceal her true identity while traveling with Mat. She claims the name is Taraboner. She and Mat are posing as lovers to evade suspicion. See also Elidar, Egeanin; Sarna, Egeanin; Tamarath, Egeanin.
  831. Lord Brys, tSR, p. 619 (558)—Tarabon nobleman. One of his servants let it spill to Gelb that the assembly was choosing a new Panarch. Not to be confused with Ethenielle's husband.
  832. Dealda ni Carridin, tSR, p. 622—Youngest sister of Jaichim Carridin. She was carried from her bridal feast by a Myrddraal. Carridin hopes she died quickly, as he has heard that women do not cling to sanity long in the hands of a Fade. See also Carridin, Jaichim; Carridin, Vanora.
  833. Andric, tSR, p. 623 (561)—King of Tarabon. Rumor told the Whitecloaks that he had been supplanted. See also Aelfdene Casmir Lounault, Amathera.
  834. Amathera Aelfdene Casmir Lounault, tSR, p. 623 (562)—Former Panarch of Tarabon. She vanished, allegedly at Aes Sedai hands, according to White Tower spies. In reality, Amathera was being held prisoner by sisters of the Black Ajah under Liandrin, and was rescued by Elayne and Nynaeve. They had her keep a low profile for several days so as not to be hurt by the mob outside the Panarch's Palace (since it is not all that far from “The Panarch is dead!” to “Death to the Panarch!”), then she returned to her position. When the Seanchan invaded Tanchico, she refused to willingly give her country to the new conquerors; they captured her, and forced her to live as a servant. She served as a dancer for High Lady Suroth, the leader of the Seanchan pre-invasionary forces, until she was rescued by Juilin Sandar, who took her along when he fled Ebou Dar with Mat. She and Juilin have become an item since that time; he has been training her, with limited success, to stop flinching every time a Seanchan officer walks by. See also Andric; Sandar, Juilin; Thera.
  835. Tamrin, tSR, p. 625 (564)—Head of King Andric's armies in Tanchico. Carridin thinks he should sweep the beggars from the city and let the rebels deal with them in the countryside.
  836. Vanora Carridin, tSR, p. 627 (565)—Jaichim's favorite sister. She was good with horses, and had a ready laugh. She was raped and killed by a Fade and fed to Trollocs. See also ni Carridin, Dealda; Carridin, Jaichim.
  837. Gyldin, tSR, p. 631 (569)—Servant to the Black Ajah in Tanchico. Moghedien assumes her identity to infiltrate the Black sisters' gathering.
  838. Eldrith Jhondar, tSR, p. 631 (569)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the Brown. She often looks distracted, as many Browns do. She was put in charge of the group that left with Liandrin after Moghedien left them.
  839. Marillin Gemalphin, tSR, p. 631 (569)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the Brown. She is fond of cats, and is rarely seen without one. She is skinny, has a narrow face, and a wide nose. She was captured and imprisoned in the dungeons below the Palace when Elayne raided the house in which Marillin and several other Darkfriends were staying. She recently escaped, along with Falion and Shiaine.
  840. Asne Zeramene, tSR, p. 632 (570)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the Green. She has high cheekbones and tilted eyes; she grew up in Saldaea. She has four Warders, one of which is a Darkfriend. The others do not know about her loyalties, but they adore her so much it would probably take them some time to disobey her anyway.
  841. Bethamin Zeami, tSR, p. 638 (575)—Dark-skinned sul'dam who was left behind after the battle at Falme, later captured by Egeanin. When Egeanin found her, she tried to get away, so Egeanin snapped the a'dam she was carrying around her neck, hoping to use it as one more barrier to the woman fleeing (since Bethamin supposedly cannot channel, the a'dam should have no other effect than throwing a metal ring around her head). Much to Egeanin's surprise, the a'dam held Bethamin just as well as it held the damane it was intended for. Bethamin already knew this, from observing Renna, who Egwene left collared after Falme. From this, and from Nynaeve's and Elayne's information about the possibility of learning to channel (not just having it inborn), Egeanin reasoned that all sul'dam, including Bethamin, could channel if they were taught—which went against everything she had been taught her entire life. Bethamin is now forbidden to be linked to damane, both as protection for her—if anyone besides Suroth knew that the a'dam would control her, they would probably make her wear it all the time—and as protection for the Seanchan way of life, which would likely collapse if it was learned that sul'dam could channel just as well as damane. She has since been spirited away from Ebou Dar with Mat, Egeanin, and the rest of the group that fled Ebou Dar. See also Emain, Renna; Zarbey, Seta.

    Chapter 39: A Cup of Wine

    Harp icon
  842. Rendra, tSR, p. 644 (582)—Innkeeper of the Three Plum Court, an inn in Tanchico where Elayne and Nynaeve stay. Bayle Domon knows her well.
  843. Mara, tSR, p. 647 (584)—Woman from one of Thom Merrilin's gleeman tales, “Mara and the Three Foolish Kings.”
  844. Ailys Candwin, tSR, p. 653 (590)—Woman from Emond's Field. She keeps a “neat” (tidy) house beyond the Winespring Water.

    Chapter 40: Hunter of Trollocs

    Trollocs icon
  845. Buel Dowtry, tSR, p. 660 (596)—Fletcher of Emond's Field. He makes even better arrows than Tam al'Thor, and insisted upon doing all the fletching for the city by himself until Perrin convinced him that it was unneccessary. He is Jonneth's grandfather; when Jonneth moved to the Black Tower, Buel and the rest of the family moved with him rather than let him go alone.
  846. Teven Marwin, tSR, p. 669 (605)—One of Perrin's recruits. He was killed by the Trollocs when they attacked the patrol from behind.

  852. Maedin Bashere, tSR, p. 680 (613)—Faile's brother. He is two years younger than she.

See also Bashere, Davram t'Ghaline; t'Bashere, Deira ni Ghaline; Bashere, Faile; Bashere, Zarine.
  853. Eran, tSR, p. 680 (613)—Faile's footman, a member of her father's first command. He taught her to fight with knives and with her bare hands. She thinks he did so for the amusement value. See also Bashere, Davram t'Ghaline; Bashere, Faile.

    Chapter 42: A Missing Leaf

    Wolf icon
  854. Bandry (Ban) Lewin, tSR, p. 689 (622)—Dannil Lewin's cousin. He looks jut like him except for a pickaxe nose and long thin mustaches in the Domani style. Note: in the paperback edition, this character is Tell Lewin, Dannil's brother. Either would make sense. See also al'Seen, Bandry; Lewin, Dannil; Lewin, Tell.
  855. Pel Aydaer, tSR, p. 696 (628)—Bald man from Emond's Field. He taught Perrin how to catch trout with his bare hands.

  856. Hu al'Dai, tSR, p. 632 (632)—Bili's father. See also al'Dai, Bili.
  857. Tim, tSR, p. 700 (632)—Young man from Emond's Field who died in the Trolloc attack.
  858. Haral, tSR, p. 700 (632)—Young man from Emond's Field who died in the Trolloc attack. Not to be confused with the blacksmith of Emond's field, Haral Luhhan.
  859. Had, tSR, p. 632 (632)—Young man from Emond's Field who died in the Trolloc attack.
  860. Mistress al'Taron, tSR, p. 700 (632)—Dael's mother. She keeps asking where he is when Perrin and his team come back. Perrin feels awful because he hasn't the heart to tell her that her son is dead, most likely in the stomach of a Trolloc, because he was not prepared.
  861. Jaim Thane, tSR, p. 701 (633)—A boy who Dav Ayellin saw running to tell Loial that Perrin had come. He is Jon Thane's son. See also Thane, Jon.
  862. Damelle, tSR, p. 706 (637)—Ogier, daughter of Ala daughter of Soferra. In a book Loial once read, she wrote of the the first Waygate to be destroyed—it was near a stedding that had fallen to the Blight. It required 13 Aes Sedai working together using a sa'angreal. She also wrote of a later attempt to distroy a Waygate of similar circumstances using only nine sisters, an attempt that ended in disaster for the Aes Sedai.
  863. Ala, tSR, p. 706 (637)—Ogier, mother of Damelle, daughter of Soferra.
  864. Soferra, tSR, p. 706 (637)—Ogier, mother of Ala, grandmother of Damelle.

  866. Milli Ayellin, tSR, p. 718 (648)—Woman from Emond's Field. She brought the mini wolf banner to Wil al'Seen, but he didn't want to carry it.

    Chapter 45: The Tinker's Sword

  868. Eward Candwin, tSR, p. 728 (658)—Cooper of Emond's Field. He is named Edward the first time his name is mentioned, but future references are to Eward.

    Chapter 46: Veils

    Women in a Mirror icon
  869. Surine, tSR, p. 744 (672)—A sul'dam that Egeanin is looking for. She looks like Nynaeve, but is about a head taller.

    Chapter 47: The Truth of a Viewing

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  870. Danelle, tSR, p. 763 (689)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah, the only Brown sister among Elaida's group of followers and advisors that deposed Siuan. She is young, but is nonetheless the typical Brown, often slight and seemingly lost in her own thoughts. She has no friends, even among the Browns, preferring to keep to herself. Perhaps because of this tendency, Mesaana killed her and used her identity to conceal herself inside the Tower. It is not known whether Danelle was already dead and her identity stolen when Siuan was deposed, or whether Danelle did that particular action on her own. Based on the timeline, she was likely replaced before the Tower broke.
  871. Master Jovarin, tSR, p. 763 (689)—Head mason in the White Tower. He finds many books for Danelle, which Siuan thinks are distracting Danelle from how many extra men he seems to be hiring. In reality, the extra masons are soldiers.
  872. Joline Maza, tSR, p. 764 (691)—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She was a Sitter for the Green, appointed after one of the Green's sitters left for Salidar. Elaida asked her to resign her position after only weeks and sent her to Ebou Dar to meet with Queen Tylin of Altara. She has two Warders named Blaeric and Fen. One might think Joline has a wish to become a damane; she is very careless around the Seanchan. She is slender and pretty, and has big brown eyes. She is everything Teslyn is not. Mat thinks she would never be taken for someone he liked; he would be unwilling even to wish her on one of his enemies. See also Mizar, Fen; Negina, Blaeric.
  873. Shemerin, tSR, p. 764 (691)—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah, reduced to Accepted by Elaida against all Tower law and custom. She ran away from the Tower after being reduced. Egwene makes certain that her demotion remains on every sister's mind. She has light hair and a plump body. See also Tagren.

    Aiel icon

    Chapter 49: Cold Rocks Hold

    Aiel icon
  874. Bael, tSR, p. 813 (736)—Clan chief of the Goshien Aiel. He is the tallest man Rand has ever met, over a hand taller than Rand, who is not short. He has a deep, resonant voice. He has two wives named Dorindha and Melaine. Melaine and Bael were relatively recently wed, after Dorindha agreed to accept Melaine as a sister-wife. He has three sons (by Dorindha), and is expecting twin daughters (by Melaine) very soon. He has gray eyes. Bael led the Goshien Aiel in Arad Doman to restore order there. He now leads them to Merrilor and the Last Battle. See also Dorindha; Melaine.
  875. Erim, tSR, p. 813 (736)—Clan chief of the Chareen Aiel. He has red hair, half of which is white.
  876. Alsera, tSR, p. 815 (737)—Wife of Bruan. See also Bruan.
  877. Bruan, tSR, p. 815 (737)—Clan chief of the Nakai Aiel, of the Salt Flat sept. He is massive, with sad, gray eyes. He seems almost lazy by his voice and gray eyes, but even Rhuarc considers him to be a deadly fighter and a devious tactician. In Aviendha's sixth step through the crystal columns in Rhuidean, her second trip through, Bruan is still the chief of the Nakai; he is one of the only chiefs to survive the Last Battle. See also Alsera.
  878. Dhearic, tSR, p. 815 (738)—Clan chief of the Reyn Aiel. He was formerly Duadhe Mahdi'in, a Water Seeker.
  879. Sevanna, tSR, p. 815 (738)—Wise One of the Jumai sept of the Shaido Aiel. She is the widow of the last two chiefs of the Shaido, Suladric and Couladin, and served as chief of the Shaido since Couladin's death. Everyone seemed to know that she had no intention of letting another prospective chief be sent to Rhuidean. She has green eyes. She knows that the easiest way to power for herself is to attach herself to men who already hold power; she even envisioned marrying Rand (against his will) to gain power through him. She led her clan (and any Aiel deserters that joined her) through Ghealdan, where they were sent from Kinslayer's Dagger by Sammael. She constantly wanted more gai'shain—her goal was to indenture the entire world. She had taken a fancy to wearing silk, and wore nothing else. She is tall, has pale green eyes, and hair like spun gold. She would be beautiful except for the strong hint of avarice around her plump mouth. Little about her seemed Aiel beyond her eyes, skin, and hair. She also wore rings on every finger, and non-Aiel-made jewelry everwhere else. All of these were seized when she was captured by Perrin and his Seanchan allies. Her clan now stands in ruin, with no one to blame but herself. Sevanna is known to have been the only person to be almost refused her eventual status as a Wise One; part of their training is that they must declare that they are no longer students, and Sevanna declared herself to be done with her training after it had barely begun. See also Caddar; Couladin; Desaine; Muradin; Suladric; Therava.
  880. Han, tSR, p. 815 (738)—White-haired, leathery-faced clan chief of the Tomanelle Aiel. He is considered quite short for an Aiel, which is average to tall for most people. His personality is prickly at best. He is Kymer's sister-father. See also Kymer.

    Chapter 50: Traps

    Lanfear's icon
  881. Chion, tSR, p. 823 (745)—The gai'shain who escorts Rand to bed in Cold Rocks Hold. She is killed by a Dragkhar during the attack on the Hold, as was Seana.

  883. Ispan Shefar, tSR, p. 899 (816)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, formerly of the Blue. She grew up in Tarabon, and has dark hair. She was captured by Nynaeve in the Rahad. Elayne recovered a silver ring worked in braided spirals from her; it allows the bearer to enter Tel'aran'rhiod by channeling Spirit into it. Ispan was executed, messily, along with her interrogator Adeleas. The murderer was either Careane or Sareitha.

    Chapter 55: Into the Deep

    Waves icon
  884. Riana, tSR, p. (828)—Misspelling of Rianna Andomeran's first name. This mistake has been fixed in the paperback edition.
  885. Thera, tSR, p. 918 (832)—Formerly one of Suroth's da'covale. She and Juilin have a relationship. She is actually the Panarch of Tarabon, Amathera, and was spirited out of Ebou Dar by Juilin and Mat. Juilin has been trying very hard to break her of her habit of prostrating herself around Seanchan officers. See Aelfdene Casmir Lounault, Amathera. See also Aelfdene Casmir Lounault, Amathera.

    Chapter 56: Goldeneyes

    Wolf icon
  886. Faile Aybara, tSR, p. 923 (838)—Name Perrin uses for Faile on the envelope containing the letter he hoped would reach her in the event of his death. The name reflects Two Rivers tradition for a wife's name; Faile's name would be Zarine (or Faile) ni Bashere t'Aybara under Saldaean tradition. See Bashere, Faile.
  887. Paetram (Paet) al'Caar, tSR, p. 929 (844)—Citizen of Emond's Field.
  888. Athan Dearn, tSR, p. 929 (844)—A fat man from Emond's Field.

  892. Had al'Lora, tSR, p. 935 (849)—Lean young man from the Two Rivers. He has thick mustaches in the Taraboner style.
  893. Jerinvar (Jer) Barstere, tSR, p. 940 (854)—Wide-nosed, leathery-faced, white-haired mayor of Watch Hill. He and the Village Council plan to see that the Whitecloaks leave the Two Rivers.
  894. Edelle Gaelin, tSR, p. 941 (854)—Woman from Watch Hill. She is thin and has gray hair. She thinks she should have Daise Congar's position as Wisdom of Emond's Field, not just be on its Women's Circle.

  895. Mandhuin, tSR, p. 951 (864)—Heavyset, gray-haired man, of the Goshien Aiel.

    Chapter 58: The Traps of Rhuidean

    Wheel of Time icon
  896. Graendal, tSR, p. 976—One of the Forsaken, a fleshy woman with curled red-gold hair. Before the War of the Shadow, she became the leading authority on diseases of the brain, and spent much of her life dealing with the insane, schizophrenic, and others well beyond the touch of Healing. She was the best at subtle manipulations of the human mind that ever lived. After the Bore was drilled, she went through a change after she realized the world could never live up to her standards. So she began dressing in the very way she once mocked, with low cut dresses that clung to her and left little to the imagination. After being released from the Bore, Graendal took up residence in Arad Doman, capturing several members of the Royal Family to use as servants. All of her servants are not only physically well shaped and good-looking, but also had power in their society before she captured them. She includes in her collection the sister of the Domani king, two rulers from Shara, and other important figures. With Sammael dead, Moridin is the only person who knows how to find her. Graendal has been allowed limited access to the True Power through Moridin in recent days; she cannot take as much as she wants, but it is enough to, for example, take possession of a dove's mind and see through its eyes. Unbeknownst to Rand, Graendal survived his attack on Natrin's Barrow. Since he believes her dead, she feels she can plot against him—or someone else important to him—without anyone suspecting that she is involved. The Dark One was not happy that her actions resulted in the death of yet another of the Chosen, Aran'gar, however, and put her soul in a new body. Her new body is exceedingly ugly, the person of Hessalam. She is now forbidden to use her Chosen name. See also Basene; Heartseeker; Hessalam; Maisia; Nindar, Kamarile Maradim.
  897. Joar Addam Nesossin, tSR, p. 978 (888)—Real name of Asmodean. See Asmodean. See also Asmodean; Natael, Jasin.
  898. Sulamein so Bhagad, tSR, p. 981 (891)—Author of The Wheel of Time, an old history book, and the Chief Historian at the Court of the Sun in Cairhien in the Fourth Age.

    Glossary

    Wheel of Time icon
  899. Old Grim, tSR, p. 991 (900)—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  900. Mesaana, tSR, p. 993 (902)—One of the Forsaken. She has chin-length dark hair and watery blue eyes. During the Age of Legends, Mesaana was told she was unfit to do research at the Collam Daan, but was capable of teaching others. She spent her years teaching until the Bore was opened and she dedicated her life to the Dark One. During the War of Power, she created “schools” for the children, at which she taught the children to spy on their parents and other such things. After her release from the Bore, Mesaana set herself up in the White Tower, where she could control events without anyone suspecting she was behind them. She has been cooperating with Semirhage and Demandred to some extent, and taught Alviarin to Travel. She was displeased that Alviarin had ordered Elaida beaten. Mesaana has obviously taken the identity of a sister in the Tower. Who is not known. See also Freidhen, Alviarin.

  901. N'Delia Basolaine, tFoH, p. 9—Translator of a fragment of the Prophecies of the Dragon who lived circa 400 A.B. (After the Breaking). She was First Maid and Swordfast to Raidhen of Hol Cuchone. See also Raidhen of Hol Cuchone.

    Prologue: The First Sparks Fall

    Wheel of Time icon
  903. Teslyn Baradon, tFoH, p. 14—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah from Illian. She has a sharp face, narrow shoulders, gaunt cheeks, and a narrow nose—in short, she is ugly. Mat thinks she would make a passable paper birch. She was a Sitter for the Red for fifteen years until Elaida was raised and asked her to step down from the Hall. Elaida sent her to Ebou Dar to meet with Queen Tylin of Altara. When the Seanchan invaded, she was captured and made damane. She was subsequently released by Mat, and travels with him and Luca's show. She looks as if she chews rocks; Mat thinks she could win a staring contest with a post. She has lost some of the skittishness she acquired as a damane. She claims she felt “uncomfortable” in the Tower, so she began traveling with Dragonsworn instead.
  904. Javindhra Doraille, tFoH, p. 15—Sitter for the Red Ajah and leader of six Red sisters who found Logain in Cosamelle about a year before he proclaimed himself. Logain claims she and her group persuaded him to become a false Dragon. She was among those who kidnapped Egwene. Javindhra mysteriously disappeared from the Tower—in reality, she was one of the sisters leading the embassy of sorts to the Black Tower in which Red sisters offered to bond Asha'man as Warders. It is not known why she and the others have not returned to the White Tower. See also Ablar, Logain; Barasine; Tazanovni, Pevara.
  905. Memara, tFoH, p. 16 (15)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah that Elaida sent to bully Tenobia. See also Kazadi, Tenobia si Bashere.
  906. Evanellein, tFoH, p. 16 (15)—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She is very concerned with her appearance, at least for a Gray. She was one of the sisters who took Siuan Sanche into custody before she was deposed. She was a close confidant of Elaida after she took over. She fled the Tower the day Egwene was raised Amyrlin, though she was not on Verin's list. Egwene suspected that she may have been one Verin missed. She was right: Evanellein was part of Mesaana's attack on the Tower from the World of Dreams. She died at Egwene's hands.
  907. Andaya Forae, tFoH, p. 18 (16)—Sitter for the Gray Ajah in Tar Valon. She has light brown hair, and grew up in Tarabon. She reminds Elaida of a sparrow about to hop to another branch. She is neither small nor slim. Serancha, the head of the Gray Ajah, practically annointed her to her seat in the Hall. Everyone expected Andaya to be appointed to the Hall, but they also expected another forty or fifty years to pass before it occured. She was chosen to meet Egwene at the bridges into Tar Valon; sending a Gray may have been an attempt to express their desire for diplomacy and peace. She retains her seat in the Hall now that the Tower has been reunited. See also Murasaka, Andaya.
  908. Queen Alliandre Maritha Kigarin, tFoH, p. 22 (19)—Blessed of the Light, Queen of Ghealdan, Defender of Garen's Wall. She is the fourth person to sit on the throne of Ghealdan in the past several months. She wore jewelry to her meetings with Masema for the sole purpose of giving it to him such that he would not ask for anything more; she also sent a letter to Rand offering him her friendship and asking for his help. She was subsequently captured by the Shaido Aiel, and is now one of Faile's followers. She escaped during the battle between Perrin (assisted by the Seanchan) and the Shaido. She seems to think herself more politically adept than she actually is. She has hair like the Sun. See also Dagar, Masema; Ellizelle; Johanin; Teresia.
  909. Silviana Brehon, tFoH, p. 25 (21)—Former Mistress of Novices in the White Tower. She is from the Red Ajah, and was appointed by Elaida after Sheriam left the Tower. She is tall stocky, and has a square face. She keeps her black hair in a bun. Egwene describes her as stern, but fair. Elaida herself used to go to her occasionally for “voluntary” penanaces—these penances were actually being assigned by Alviarin in an attempt to keep Elaida in her place. After Alviarin was supplanted, Elaida sent Alviarin to Silviana's study for daily penance. Silviana was the sole voice in the Tower (other than Egwene) who spoke out against Elaida—she went as far as calling Elaida out, in front of the Hall, for her actions as Amyrlin, which she pointed out were only useful for sowing dissent and distrust among the sisters. She claimed the Red Ajah should be embarrassed by having one of their own behave that way as the leader of the Aes Sedai. Elaida managed to shift some of the blame away from herself, then prompty imprisoned Silviana in the deepest cells in the Tower dungeons. Egwene was impressed enough with Silviana's behavior—both in doing her duty as she saw it by beating Egwene, no matter how much she resented doing it, and in being brave enough to stand up to Elaida when no one else would—that she appointed her to be Keeper of the Chronicles in the reunited Tower. She has transfered her dedication and competence to the new post with alacrity. She has a deep dislike for Gawyn, thinking he is too impetuous and a bad influence on Egwene. She nonetheless agreed to preside over their marriage ceremony. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; Bayanar, Sheriam; Keeper of the Chronicles; Mistress of Novices; Noselle, Tiana.

  915. Serenla Min, tFoH, p. 42 (33)—Name Min adopts while traveling. It means “stubborn daughter” in the Old Tongue. The last name was a mistake; when Gareth Bryne asked for her name, Min spat out her real name, and that was how she corrected it. See Farshaw, Elmindreda.
  916. Resara, tFoH, p. 45 (35)—Leane's aunt. She said that if you ever flirted with a man and he heard more promises than you meant to give, you paid the price and enjoyed it. See also Sharif, Leane.

He was also the man who escorted the three from the shed they were being detained in. When Bryne was still Captain of the Queen's Guards, Joni was Senior Bannerman. In the Battle for Kandor, Bryne put him in charge of his lancers at the ford. He failed to hold it, and died there. He was succeeded by Uno.
  919. Thad Haren, tFoH, p. 53 (40)—Skinny man from Emond's Field. He and Jon Ayellin dispute the boundaries of their farms. He rarely leaves his farm except to go to Emond's Field. However, he was convinced to leave with Tam to help Perrin.

    Chapter 2: Rhuidean

    Dragon icon
  926. Timolan, tFoH, p. 84 (61)—Clan Chief of the Miagoma Aiel. When he was young as a chief, he tried to unite the clans and failed. Other chiefs thought he might be a little hesitant to follow a man who had succeeded in doing just that. He grates at Rand's arrogance. He vowed that if Rand abandoned the Aiel, the Miagoma would go back to the Three Fold Land—after he sees Rand al'Thor dead. Wise Ones have recently been sent to convince Timolan not to return to the Three-Fold Land.
  927. Janwin, tFoH, p. 84 (61)—Clan chief of the Shiande Aiel with a creased face and blue-gray eyes. He is not sure how to take the news of Rand's disappearance, and his holding his counsel; he listens to both Timolan and Indirian, though.
  928. Mandelain, tFoH, p. 84 (62)—One-eyed clan chief of the Daryne Aiel. He is not sure how to take the news of Rand's dissappearance, and his holding his counsel; he listens to both Timolan and Indirian, though.
  929. Indirian, tFoH, p. 84 (62)—Green-eyed clan chief of the Codarra Aiel. Tall and massive with a hard, sober face. He believes that if Rand went to Tar Valon, it would not be willingly—he said that if the news was true, he would take the Codarra north, and dance the spears with any Aes Sedai he encountered.

    Chapter 3: Pale Shadows

    Dice icon
  930. The Spider, tFoH, p. 104 (74)—Name often used for Moghedien. A moghedien was a particularly poisonous type of spider in the Age of Legends. See Moghedien.
  931. Enaila, tFoH, p. 107 (78)—Former Maiden of the Spear of the Jarra Chareen with red, fiery hair. She is short for an Aiel, a point of sensitivity for her. She gave up the spear to marry Leiran. She was speared through the gut by four Trollocs. See also Leiran.
  932. Joinde, tFoH, p. 108 (78)—Maiden who once stood guard at Rand's door. She just gave up the spear to marry Garan of the Jhirad sept of the Goshien Aiel. He was her gai'shain for a year beforehand. She is of the Black Rock sept of the Shaarad Aiel; the Shaarad and the Goshien were blood enemies at the time they married. See also Garan.
  933. Garan, tFoH, p. 108 (78)—Aiel of the Black Rock sept of the Goshien Aiel. He has served one year as gai'shain to the Shaarad Clan, and as soon as he puts off the white will be married to Joinde of the Black Rock Shaarad. Marriages are common among men and women taken gai'shain and members of the clan they serve, but very seldom occur between two clans in blood feud. The fact that theirs will occur is no doubt due to the presence of Rand al'Thor, whose chance-twisting effects of being ta'veren twist seldom occurences into everyday events. See also Joinde.
  934. Jak o' the Shadows, tFoH, p. 109 (79)—Person or thing that men want to dance to in a song Mat is fond of singing, “Dance with Jak o' the Shadows.” It is thought that Jak o' the Shadows is death.

She was Tuon, now called, as Empress, Fortuona. Semirhage attempted to disguise herself as the Daughter of the Nine Moons to secure a meeting with and capture Rand al'Thor; Rand scheduled a meeting with the real Daughter of the Nine Moons so they could negotiate peace before Tarmon Gai'don. That meeting failed miserably, and almost caused Rand to destroy the Seanchan before he suffered his crises of conscience at Dragonmount. Shortly after that meeting, Tuon declared herself Empress, thereby killing (in the proverbial sense) the Daughter of the Nine Moons. See Cauthon, Matrim; Paendrag, Tuon Athaem Kore.

She is about a head taller than Egwene. She is the strongest-willed of the Wise Ones—even other Wise Ones scurry to do her bidding, and no one gives her orders. Cadsuane invited her to help interrogate Semirhage; she is the only person Cadsuane has met in recent memory that she would consider her equal. She and Cadsuane shared a goal: to make sure Rand still knew the feeling of laughter and sadness, that he still had compassion within him.
  942. Dorindha, tFoH, p. 150 (107)—Wife of Bael, and sister-wife to Melaine. She is roofmistress to Smoke Springs Hold, and has three sons. Her long red hair is touched with white.

She ended her tenure as a servant when she learned that Rand had been captured, and led the rescue party of Maidens to Dumai's Wells.

  945. King Ailron, tFoH, p. 208 (148)—King of Amadicia until the Seanchan invaded. He was not as strong as most kings due to the control of the Children of the Light—in fact, he had almost no real power at all. During the invasion, he took his army to engage the invaders near Jeramel; they were slaughtered, and Ailron himself was captured in what Valda now calls “Ailron's Disaster.” See also Niall, Pedron; Valda, Eamon.

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  953. King Roedran Almaric do Arreloa a'Naloy, tFoH, p. 233 (167)—King of Murandy, at least in name. In reality, Murandians held allegiance to lords only, and those lords often refused to pay their taxes to the King. He has, however, made himself the first true king of Murandy in its history by deft manipulation of the nobles' unease about the Borderlander, Andoran, and Aes Sedai presences on Murandian soil. Egwene sent an invitation and an offer of Traveling to him so he could attend the meeting with Rand and the world's rulers, but she doubts he will attend.

  959. Aeldene Stonebridge, tFoH, p. 241 (172)—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She was born in an Andoran mining village in the Mountains of Mist, and has a crooked nose that she is rumored to have gotten from fighting with her fists as a girl. She is now the head of the Blue Ajah's network of eyes-and-ears; she took over when Siuan was raised Amyrlin. She recently tried to weasel the Amyrlin's eyes-and-ears out of Siuan for the Blue Ajah; Siuan refused to budge even a millimeter.
  960. Deane Aryman, tFoH, p. 242 (173)—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah, later raised to the Amyrlin Seat. She succeeded Bonwhin Meraighdin, Amyrlin during the reign of Artur Hawkwing. Her strong spirit and sturdy administration brought the Tower back to most of its former prestige, all of which was teetering on the brink of disappearing after Bonwhin's manipulations of Hawkwing. She in effect saved the Tower. She is one of the most respected Amyrlins of all time, and part of the reason a large number of Amyrlins have been raised from the Blue Ajah. She was born in the city of Salidar, in Eharon. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; al'Vere, Egwene; Amyrlin Seat; Meraighdin, Bonwhin; Sanche, Siuan.

He is easily persuaded with money, and is very stingy—except where his wife is concerned. See also Luca, Latelle.
  967. The Prophet of the Dragon, tFoH, p. 261 (186)—Title given Masema as the self-appointed bringer of the news of the Rebirth of the Dragon. He is not sane anymore, but has gained a very large following. Rand sent Perrin to Ghealdan with a few of the Asha'man and some of the sworn Aes Sedai to bring him in line. He has since been traveling with Perrin on his quest to rescue Faile. The Prophet developed a great rapport with Aram, who clung to his every word. The night before Perrin was ready to commence his plan to rescue his wife, the Prophet had a vision: the Dragon Reborn, dressed in robes, telling him to kill Perrin Aybara. He convinced Aram that Perrin's yellow eyes were a result of him being Shadowspawn, which convinced Aram to attempt to kill Perrin. In his last moments before Faile killed him, the Prophet dimly remembers his true name, Masema, and the life he had lead before becoming the Prophet of the Dragon Reborn. See also Aram; Dagar, Masema.
  968. Mistress Jharen, tFoH, p. 264 (188)—Plump innkeeper of The Light of Truth, an inn at which Elayne and Nynaeve stop. She has long, gray curls; a warm smile; and searching, dark eyes.

    Chapter 19: Memories

    Dagger icon
  989. Lord Jarid Sarand, tFoH, p. 347 (247)—Elenia's husband, the High Seat of House Sarand. A square-faced man, he is dark for an Andorman. During the Succession, Jared's House opposed Morgase; after she became Queen, he was only allowed into the Palace on state occasions. When Rand killed Gaebril and took control of Caemlyn until he could find Elayne, Jarid tried to make himself fall into favor, thinking he could gain power with the new ruler. He and his wife have been exiled, and supported Arymilla's claim to the Lion Throne. He still supports Elenia's attempt to claim the throne for herself. He is very honorable, almost too much so. Since Elayne's ascention to the Lion Throne, he has been the most troubling holdout against her. His hair has grown loyal through the months of his exile. He continually demands Elayne's head, claiming she and the rest of the Aes Sedai are responsible for the strange events in the world. His men are beginning to grow weary of providing their support, realizing that no human could perpetrate the events they are witnessing. He has ten personal guards, who wear his symbol: a golden bear charging before a read spear. See also Bayrd; Davies; Eri; Karam; Morear; Rosse; Sarand, Elenia.
  990. Lady Elenia Sarand, tFoH, p. 347 (247)—Shrewish, honey-haired Andoran noble with an eye for Rand. She has a vulpine face and keeps her golden hair in a bun. Her husband Jarid opposed Morgase during the Succession. Dyelin exiled her from Caemlyn, as Morgase did long ago, for attempting to take the Lion Throne. She still planned to take it from Elayne, though once she was rescued from Aringill by Arymilla's men, her claim vanished. Her House later supported Arymilla for the Lion Throne and the Rose Crown of Andor. However, she thinks Arymilla “lacks the wit” to be queen, and Elayne too immature—she is also not above causing “accidents” for her rivals. Elayne imprisoned her after Arymilla's failed attempt to take the Throne. Her husband still holds out the hope of seizing Caemlyn and putting her on the throne, but Elayne's position may be too strong for that now. See also Arawn, Naean; Marne, Arymilla; Sarand, Jarid.
  991. Lady Arymilla Marne, tFoH, p. 347 (247)—One of the few people in the Palace that Morgase still recognizes. The brown-eyed noble was forbidden to be on Palace grounds for opposing Morgase during the Succession until Gaebril Compelled Morgase to rescind the order.
  992. Masin Caeren, tFoH, p. (247)—Misspelling of Nasin Caeren, Andoran noble. This mistake has been fixed in later editions. See Caeren, Nasin.
  993. Lord Nasin Caeren, tFoH, p. 348—Andoran noble, High Seat of House Caeren. He gave Arymilla lodging during her attempts to take the Lion Throne. He has thin white hair, and is stark raving mad. He believes himself betrothed to Elenia, despite the fact that she is married. See also Caeren, Miedelle.
  994. Lady Naean Arawn, tFoH, p. 348 (247)—Andoran noble that sneers a lot. Morgase forbade her to enter the Palace because she opposed her during the War of Succession; Gaebril invited her back in an effort to weaken Morgase's power.
  995. Lord Lir Baryn, tFoH, p. 348 (247)—“Whip of a man” who always wears a sword. He was one of the nobles who opposed Morgase during the Succession. Slender and strong, he is the High Seat of House Baryn. He was exiled from the Palace except for official functions by Morgase after she took the Lion Throne, but he invited himself back when Rand forced Gaebril out of town. He was later exiled again by Elayne, though he has since thrown his lot in with her. He now advocates retaking Caemlyn from the Trollocs. His sign is a wing and hammer.
  996. Lady Karind Anshar, tFoH, p. 348 (247)—Andoran noblewoman. Her stare allegedly put three husbands under the soil. She was banished from the Palace grounds except for state occasions for opposing Morgase during the Third War of Andoran Succession during which Morgase came to power. When Rand killed Gaebril, she came to him and tried to win his favor—she only wants to advance her own power and influence in Andor. She has since been re-exiled from the Palace grounds.
  997. Lady Maighdin Trakand, tFoH, p. 351 (249)—Mother of Morgase and grandmother of Elayne. She was quite beautiful (according to Morgase). See also Dorlain, Maighdin; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Morgase.
  998. Lord Pelivar Coelan, tFoH, p. 354 (251)—Andoran noble, leader of a strong House that supported Morgase during the Succession. Morgase exiled him from Caemlyn as per Gaebril's suggestion, but she hoped he would still support her when she came to reclaim the throne. He is one of the lords in Andor who arrested Naean and Elenia for claiming the Lion Throne; he later led the Andoran troops that confronted the Aes Sedai led by Egwene. He is hesistant to support Elayne's claim to the Lion Throne, and instead wants Dyelin to assume the Throne.
  999. Lord Abelle Pendar, tFoH, p. 354 (251)—Andoran noble, leader of a strong House that supported Morgase during the Succession. Morgase exiled him from Caemlyn as per Gaebril's suggestion, but she hopes he will still support her when she comes to reclaim the throne. Elayne hopes he will support her claim to the throne. He seems to disappear easily and at random, and for now he is effectively in hibernation from the point of view of Andoran politics.
  1000. Lady Arathelle Renshar, tFoH, p. 354 (251)—Andoran noble with more power than any other noble in Andor save Dyelin and Luan. Her army met up with Egwene's outside Salidar, and she is now in Murandy. Her House wants Dyelin to take the throne, and is very hesistant to support Elayne.
  1001. Lady Ellorien Traemane, tFoH, p. 354 (251)—Andoran lady, leader of a strong House that supported Morgase during the Succession, and one of Morgase's best friends. Morgase exiled her from Caemlyn as per Gaebril's suggestion; when Ellorien demanded to know why, Morgase had her flogged. Elayne was named after her grandmother. Morgase hopes she will forgive her for what she did and support her when she comes to Andor to reclaim her throne, or at least support Elayne in her claim. She and her House have effectively disappeared from the face of Andoran politics for the last few weeks. Morgase remembers exiling her, but she does not remember why she exiled her. She has been the most problematic holdout against Elayne, except perhaps for Jarid Sarand. See also Gaebril; Sarand, Jarid; Traemane, Elayne; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Morgase.
  1002. Lady Elayne Traemane, tFoH, p. 354 (251)—Ellorien's grandmother. Morgase named her daughter after her. See also Traemane, Ellorien; Trakand, Elayne.
  1003. Lady Aemlyn Carand, tFoH, p. 354 (251)—Andoran lady, High Seat of a strong House that supported Morgase during the Succession. Morgase exiled her from Caemlyn as per Gaebril's suggestion. Elayne hopes that she will still support her, but for now she supports Dyelin for the Throne. Morgase remembers exiling her, but not why she exiled her. See also Carand, Culhan.
  1004. Lord Luan Norwelyn, tFoH, p. 354 (251)—Andoran noble, High Seat of a strong House that supported Morgase during the Succession. Morgase exiled him from Caemlyn as per Gaebril's suggestion, but hoped he would still support her when she returned to claim the throne. Elayne also hopes he will support her claim to the throne despite Morgase's actions. He leads one of the small armies that encountered Egwene and her group of Aes Sedai on their way to Tar Valon. His retainers have effectively disappeared from Elayne's view, and she remains uncertain whether he will support her claim to the Lion Throne.
  1005. Queen Mordrellen Mantear, tFoH, p. 356 (252)—By the Grace of the Light, Queen of Andor, Defender of the Realm, etc. before Morgase. Her death and the previous disappearance of her daughter Tigraine set off the Succession, called the Third War of Andoran Succession by those not from Andor. Her advisor was Gitara Moroso of the Blue Ajah. She is, unknown to everyone except Rand himself, Rand's grandmother. Editor's note: her name is actually listed as Queen Modrellein by Dyelin in other books. There is also a reference made to the character of Modrellein as the hero of Andor who rode into the middle of the battle 700 years ago, reversed the retreat, rallied the army, and won the battle—that is who she was confused with. See also al'Thor, Rand; Damodred, Galadedrid; Damodred, Taringail; Damodred, Tigraine; Mantear, Luc; Modrellein; Moroso, Gitara; Trakand, Morgase.
  1006. Verine, tFoH, p. 367 (260)—One of the Accepted. She was supposed to be on guard at the door to the storage closet where high-security objects are kept. She was killed by Fain with the dagger he stole from the closet (the one Mat carried from Shadar Logoth).

    Aes Sedai icon
  1007. Tal Nethin, tFoH, p. 374 (266)—Saddlemaker from Taien, a city along the Spine of the World that Couladin attacked on his way to Cairhien. He makes a new hilt for Rand to house the blade of King Laman's sword for him. See also Corl, Aril ni Nethin.
  1008. Aril ni Nethin Corl, tFoH, p. 375 (266)—Tal Nethin's sister, Ander's wife. Her two children were kidnapped as alleged gai'shain by the Shaido. Although by Aiel custom those who do not follow ji'e'toh cannot be taken gai'shain, they were taken just the same. See also Corl, Ander; Nethin, Tal.
  1009. Ander Corl, tFoH, p. 375 (266)—Wagon driver from Cairhien. He has many wrong ideas about Rand. See also Corl, Aril ni Nethin.

  1013. Aeron, tFoH, p. 443—Graying Wise One. She cannot channel.
  1014. Feran, tFoH, p. 414 (294)—Aiel man. His greatfather is Sorilea's sister-son. Sorilea plans to set him up with Aviendha, since it appears that Rand and Aviendha will not marry (she does not understand that Aviendha does not want to love him for fear of hurting Elayne). He is Seia Doon, a Black Eye. The Black Eyes have vowed not to sleep beneath roof or tent until one of their own, Couladin, is dead. He looks like Rhuarc, but younger, taller, and more handsome. He also has redder hair.

    Cairhien icon
  1015. Anselan, tFoH, p. 418 (297)—Hero of Legend who appears in The Flame, the Blade, and the Heart, a book Egwene is reading. He was a Warder chosen by the Amyrlin Seat of the time for Barashelle. Barashelle had bonded a Warder as an Accepted; this was strictly forbidden, even though she was to be raised to the shawl the next day. She bonded him then to make sure that another Accepted, who was being raised one day earlier than she, did not bond him first. The Amyrlin made her transfer his bond to another woman, and forced her to bond Anselan. Anselan was cold to her, and she spent most of her life trying to make him see her with respect. See also Barashelle.
  1016. Barashelle, tFoH, p. 418 (287)—Hero of Legend who appears in The Flame, the Blade, and the Heart, a book Egwene is reading. Although it is never mentioned in the stories, Birgitte remembers that she bonded a Warder while still one of the Accepted, the day before being raised Aes Sedai. When it was found out, the current Amyrlin Seat forced her to transfer her bond to another woman, forbade her to take the tests for several years, sent her to scrub pots for a very long time, and when she finally did receive the shawl, she bonded her to Anselan. Several years later, Birgitte was unsure of which one of them gave the commands. See also Anselan.

    Wheel of Time icon
  1021. Jak o' the Mists, tFoH, p. 440 (312)—Something that Logain thinks is pointless to chase, and what Siuan must be chasing. It is probably the Ghealdanin equivalent to Jak o' the Wisps, and may resemble a wild goose.
  1022. Saroiya, tFoH, p. 449 (318)—Sitter for the White Ajah in the rebel Hall. She sat on Romanda's side. She was involved with the negotiations with Elaida. She still sits in the Hall now that the Tower is reunited.

She was sent, along with Bera, to establish diplomatic relations with Rand in the Aiel Waste; upon returning, she followed him to Dumai's Wells and was made to swear fealty to him. Min says that Rand should be able to trust her. She was killed by Hessalam, who also killed Faeldrin and Vitalien and took Sarene captive with Compulsion. She took Flinn's arm at the same time. See also Harkin, Bera; Nachiman, Paitar.

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  1025. Morvrin, tFoH, p. 453 (322)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She is stout, and has graying hair. She is one of the six sisters who controlled much of the action in Salidar, despite not being part of the Hall of the Tower. She is taller than her Warder, Jori, has a round placid face, and plump hands. She believes in a blending of common sense and logic, which makes her very hard-headed and suspicious of quick or easy solutions. See also Jori.
  1026. Beonin Marinye, tFoH, p. 453 (322)—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She is pretty, has honey-colored hair, and grew up in Tarabon. Her blue-gray eyes seem to constantly look startled. Nothing seems to surprise her, though, and Elayne thinks she would not believe the Sun would come up unless she saw it herself, and if one morning it did not, she would just take it to confirm that she was correct to demand proof. She was one of the six sisters in Salidar that had most of the authority, despite not being part of the Hall of the Tower, and later served as Egwene's advisor from the Gray Ajah. Egwene was shocked to see she had returned to the Tower after Egwene was captured; she accused Beonin of betraying her, but Beonin denied it, and claims her oath still holds. She did, however, betray the spies sent to the Tower, though she claims she warned the spies from the Gray about it. Since her oath still holds, and by the Three Oaths Egwene knows she cannot lie, she has been conscripted to serve as Egwene's agent inside the Tower. See also Dura, Tervail.
  1027. Bera Harkin, tFoH, p. 466 (331)—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She has three Warders. She was sent, along with Kiruna, to establish diplomatic relations with Rand in the Aiel Waste. She grew up on a farm in Andor. After following Rand to Dumai's Wells, she was made to swear fealty to him. Bera is stocky, and has brown hair that she keeps cut close around her square face. She Healed Aviendha of her injuries at Thakan'dar.

  1031. Lord Rodel Ituralde, tFoH, p. 469 (333)—General of the army of Arad Doman. He is one of the greatest commanders alive, along with Mat Cauthon, Davram Bashere, Gareth Bryne, Agelmar Jagad, and a few Aiel clan chiefs. He keeps a neatly-trimmed mustache, and a ruby in his left ear. He is short in stature. He is called the Wolf by his peers—when the Wolf calls, they follow his lead. He led a band of Taraboners and Domani to wreak havoc among the Seanchan. Even the Seanchan were impressed by his campaign. Rand has since conscripted him into defending Saldaea from the Trolloc hordes. He is a Blademaster. With Alsalam presumed dead, Egwene wonders whether he has ascended to the Throne. See also Ituralde, Tamsin.

    Bull icon
  1032. Lord Dulain, tFoH, p. 479 (339)—Border lord in Murandy who the Tower thought could truly unify Murandy, with a little guidance from the Aes Sedai. He is the reason Siuan and Elaida ordered Gareth Bryne not to use the Queen's Guards to keep raids along Andor's border in check; they did not want one of Bryne's guards to kill him and ruin all of their plans. Unfortunately, Dulain was killed by a farmer before he could unify anything.

  1033. Teodora Kadere, tFoH, p. 486 (344)—Sister to Hadnan Kadere. She taught him how to count, spell, read, etc. He killed her when she found out he was a Darkfriend; he always thinks of her now whenever he kills a woman. She grew up in Saldaea. See also Kadere, Hadnan.

She and Bar Dowtry were caught by Nynaeve in Bar's father's hayloft doing something they should not have been doing before they were married. She was 21 years old at the time; her mother was not pleased, and neither Kimry nor Bar could sit for their first week of marriage. The Women's Circle decided that a month was the shortest possible period of engagement, and the two barely got by a few minutes without another strapping of some kind until the month was up.
  1037. Bar Dowtry, tFoH, p. 514 (364)—Young man from Emond's Field. He and Kimry Lewin were caught by Nynaeve in his father's hayloft doing something they should not have been doing before they were married. Kimry was 21 years old at the time; her mother was not pleased, and neither Kimry nor Bar could sit for their first week of marriage. The Women's Circle decided that a month was the shortest possible period of engagement, and the two barely got by a few minutes without another strapping of some kind until the month was up. Bar now makes cabinets in Emond's Field. He arrived with Tam to help save Faile.
  1038. Mistress Lewin, tFoH, p. 514 (364)—A woman from Emond's Field. Her daughter Kimry was found, by Nynaeve, with Bar Dowtry in his father's hayloft performing certain actions which they should not have been doing before marrying. Kimry was 21 at the time, and was considered an adult. Mistress Lewin was still not impressed; by the time she was was done with them, neither Kimry nor Bar could sit for a week. See also Dowtry, Bar; Lewin, Kimry.

  1043. Sarek, tFoH, p. 524 (372)—Seanchan man who has “designs” for Serengada Dai and Tuel. It is not known whether Sarek will go on to father a son named Spock, but I think this would be an only fitting plot item....
  1044. Niella, tFoH, p. 528—Aviendha's first-sister; she is about six or seven years older than Aviendha. Niella is a weaver, taken gai'shain by Chareen Maidens during a raid on Sulara Hold. She serves for about another six months. She tried to talk Aviendha out of taking up the spear, and has always wanted to see her married. She learned that Aviendha and Rand were alone together (though she did not know any details) while the two were on the far side of the world—Aviendha had made a Gateway to flee Rand after he walked in on her while she was in the bath. She inferred, correctly as it turns out, that the two were intimate, and immediately spread the word, much to Aviendha's later embarrassment. See also Aviendha.

He died in an alleged hunting accident, although Uno claimed that unless Johanin did not know one end of a boar spear from another, he was killed by the nobles who told him to put the group down. He was succeeded by Ellizelle. It was Johanin who stripped Logain of his titles when he declared himself the Dragon Reborn. See also Ellizelle; Kigarin, Alliandre Maritha; Teresia.

He also controlled part of the massive army Rand sent against Illian. His sign is a silver Crescent-and-stars. Rand kept him close to ensure he committed as few blunders as possible; he can blunder with the worst of them. He is only brave because he is too stupid to be afraid. He arranges his hair as if to emphasize just how much he is balding. He has an oiled, pointed beard. He is tall. According to Moridin, he was quite shaken by what Rand did to him.
  1066. Mattin Stepaneos den Balgar, tFoH, p. 648 (460)—King of Illian. He has been missing since before Rand killed Sammael. He had no real power anyway, since Sammael ruled Illian from the Council of Nine. He was good-looking when he was younger, but he has not aged well. His beard is white, much of his hair has fallen out, his nose looks like it has been broken more than once, and his face is crushed. The cause of his disappearance has now been revealed: he was kidnapped and whisked out of Illian by Elaida. He remains a guest in the Tower. See also Brend; Sammael.

  1072. Daerid, tFoH, p. 688 (488)—Former commander of the foot of the Band of the Red Hand. He is slightly taller than Talmanes, and about fifteen years older. His nose has been broken many times. He has been a soldier all his life, and was not nobly born. He now is Mat's dragoneer.
  1073. Lord Talmanes Delovinde, tFoH, p. 689 (489)—Cairhienin military commander, about three years older than Mat and about a head shorter. His con is three yellow stars on a blue field. His banner is a black fox. He rarely smiles, and reminds Mat of a compressed spring. He commands the Band of the Red Hand Mat's absence. He is skinny, and has gray hair. He has no fashion sense, but has excellent taste in wine. Before he met Mat, he had little or no respect for commoners—he has since learned great respect for some common men, Mat in particular. He is shy around women.

  1074. Seirin, tFoH, p. 698 (496)—Aiel of the Shorara sept of the Tomanelle Aiel.
  1075. Lord Nalesean Aldiaya, tFoH, p. 704 (500)—Late subcommander in the Band of the Red Hand. He was a blocky man, taller than Talmanes or Daerid. He led the other half of the Band of the Red Hand's cavalry, the part Talmanes did not command. He kept a pointed black beard. He was killed by the gholam.
  1076. Tel Janin Aellinsar, tFoH, p. 709 (503)—Real name of Sammael. He renounced the name when the world gave him his new name, “Destroyer of Hope.” They gave him his name on the day he betrayed the Gates of Hevan and carried the Shadow's forces into the Rorn M'doi and the heart of Satelle. See also Sammael.
  1077. Culan Cuhan, tFoH, p. 713 (506)—Person (or possibly an entire city) who wept on the day Tel Janin Aellinsar became the Destroyer of Hope. The name was part of the memory that Rand had in his head from Lews Therin Telamon.

    Chapter 45: After the Storm

    Cairhien icon
  1078. Lord Dobraine Taborwin, tFoH, p. 720 (511)—Cairienin lord. He is the High Seat of House Taborwin, and commanded the troops Perrin led to Dumai's Wells. He is little taller than Min, and has dark eyes, gray hair, and a square face. He is a solid man with furrowed skin. He keeps the front of his head shaved and powdered, and keeps the gray hair on the sides to his shoulders. He was the only Cairhienin noble to retain a sizable force after the Shaido invasion. He was the Steward of Cairhien for the Dragon Reborn; he ruled the country in Rand's absence, and served as his advisor in his presence. He seems bored with being a mere steward—he asked to help the Aiel secure Bandar Eban, which he did, with Rhuarc's help. Rand suspects he is trying to secure a foothold in another nation, as Rand plans to see Elayne crowned Queen of Cairhien. He has not yet returned to Cairhien, preferring to remain in Arad Doman for the time. See also Taborwin, Breane.
  1079. Lord Maringil, tFoH, p. 720 (511)—Cairhienin lord. He had white hair to his shoulders, was blade thin, and icy cool. He was killed by Colavaere because he was competition for the Sun Throne.
  1080. Lady Colavaere Saighan, tFoH, p. 720 (511)—Cairhienin noble who claimed the Sun Throne when Rand was taken prisoner by Aes Sedai. When he returned, he dethroned her and stripped her of all her titles and estates. Rather than living in shame, she committed suicide. She is now on Rand's list of women for whom he feels responsible for their deaths. She is Bertome's cousin. See also Saighan, Bertome.

    Aes Sedai icon
  1081. Somara, tFoH, p. 733 (520)—Flaxen-haired Maiden of the Spear, of the Bent Peak sept of the Daryne Aiel. She is tall even among the Aiel and is the tallest among Rand's honor guard. She took part in Rand's beating. She is among the names Rand has on his list.
  1082. Lamelle, tFoH, p. 733 (520)—Maiden of the Spear of the Smoke Water sept of the Miagoma Aiel. She was one of the worst at treating Rand as a long-lost son, but eventually died in his service. She is now featured on his list.
  1083. Pevin, tFoH, p. 736 (522)—Cairhienin refugee who now carries the Aes Sedai (black and white circle) banner. He lost his wife and sister to famine, his brother and one son to civil war, and another son and brother to Andoran soldiers and bandits. His last son and his daughter were killed when the Shaido attacked Cairhien.
  1084. Avienda, tFoH, p. 747 (531)—This is one of the easily forgivable typos in the book. It should be “Aviendha,” not “Avienda.” Close enough. See Aviendha.

    Chapter 47: The Price of a Ship

    S'redit icon
  1085. Mathena, tFoH, p. 760 (540)—Woman Birgitte knew long ago that she thinks was like Nynaeve. She looked down her nose at men, and even executed a man when he chanced upon her when she was swimming naked. She was never kissed until Zheres stole one from her; after he did, it was as if she had discovered men for the first time. He eventually had to move to a home in the mountains to escape her. See also Zheres.
  1086. Zheres, tFoH, p. 761 (540)—A man who dared steal a kiss from Mathena. She had never been kissed prior to that, but afterwards she became so enamoured with him that he had to live in the mountains to escape her. See also Mathena.
  1087. Murasaka sisters, tFoH, p. 762 (541)—Performers in Valan Luca's menagerie. According to Nynaeve, they look more disparate in their physical appearance than the Chavana brothers.
  1088. Andaya Murasaka, tFoH, p. 769 (546)—A member of Valan Luca's menagerie. Not to be confused with the Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. See also Forae, Andaya.

    Children of the Light icon
  1090. Kirukan, tFoH, p. 787 (558)—Fabled warrior-Queen of Aramelle. The sword of the King or Queen of Kandor is called the Sword of Kirukan; it may indeed have belonged to her. She allegedly beheaded a false Dragon with her own hands and bore five sons by another male channeler.
  1091. Agni Neres, tFoH, p. 788 (559)—Tall, bony captain of Riverserpent, the boat Elayne and Nynaeve take from Ghealdan to Salidar. He has a narrow face, and his ears stick out.

    Chapter 49: To Boannda

    Waves icon
  1092. Nicola Treehill, tFoH, p. 801 (569)—Slender, black-haired, dark-eyed novice; she is about Nynaeve's age. She was a refugee from Ghealdan. She has already developed several Talents, including the ability to see ta'veren and Foretelling, although what she Foretells is usually in such language that only poets can understand it. Her potential exceeds that of all Aes Sedai currently alive, with the exception of Egwene, Elayne, and Nynaeve. She has a limited ability to make cuendillar, but she is impatient in learning. She is very arrogant and can also be deceitful; she once tried to blackmail Egwene, Myrelle, and Nisao. She used the fact that she could Foretell to be even more arrogant and demand even more special treatment. When Egwene refused to grant her that treatment, she ran away to the White Tower, thinking they would let her progress at the pace she wanted. She could not have been more incorrect, of course, and her life in the Tower was no doubt even more abysmal than it was before. It would have gotten even worse if a sister ever found out that she lied about her age; she is too old to be entered into the novice book by traditional Tower law. When Egwene was captured, Nicola became one of her foremost adherents among the novices; Nicola gathered enough support for Egwene amongst the novices that they supported Egwene more than many of the sisters in the Tower. She has recently been raised to the Accepted, now that the Tower is reunited. She and Nissa brought the news to Egwene that the Tower was meeting without informing her first. She still has much to learn about reigning in her ambition, and still suffers from terrible judgment. See also Hyran; Nermasiv, Areina; Nissa.
  1093. Hyran, tFoH, p. 801 (569)—Late fiancé of Nicola Treehill. He went off to follow the Prophet, believing it his duty—duty is very important to him—and got his head split with an axe. See also Treehill, Nicola.
  1094. Marigan, tFoH, p. 802 (569)—Identity assumed by Moghedien in order to slip in amongst Nynaeve's refugee women in Salidar. None save Nynaeve, Birgitte, Elayne, Leane, and Siuan know that the necklace she wears is actually an a'dam, a device used to control her so she cannot do the things Forsaken usually do. See also Jaril; Moghedien; Seve.
  1095. Areina Nermasiv, tFoH, p. 802 (569)—Dark-haired novice about two years younger than Nynaeve. She imitates Birgitte as a Hunter. She is good friends with Nicola. See also Nermasiv, Gwil; Treehill, Nicola.
  1096. Gwil Nermasiv, tFoH, p. 803 (570)—One of the servants Faile trained for Perrin. Perrin treats him as a friend and drinking partner, not a servant. See also Nermasiv, Areina.
  1097. Jaril, tFoH, p. 821 (582)—Alleged son of Marigan. Along with Seve, he was taken off the street by Marigan and treated as her son to take some suspicion away from her in case anyone suspected her true identity. When Marigan's true identity was found out, Jaril and Seve were taken in by other women in Salidar. See also Marigan; Moghedien; Seve.
  1098. Seve, tFoH, p. 821 (582)—Alleged son of Marigan. Along with Jaril, he was taken off the street by Marigan and treated as her son to take some suspicion away from her in case anyone suspected her true identity. When Marigan's true identity was found out, Jaril and Seve were taken in by other women in Salidar. See also Jaril; Marigan; Moghedien.

    Chapter 50: To Teach, and Learn

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  1099. Phaedrine, tFoH, p. 823 (584)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. Neither she nor Shemari is strong enough to weave a gateway by herself, but linked they can just barely manage one big enough to walk through. She instructed Egwene when Egwene was a novice in the White Tower; she still seems surprised that Egwene is now the Amyrlin. She is lean as a heron, small-boned, and has dark hair and brown eyes. She is usually unkempt. She is good friends with Ashmanaille.
  1100. Croi Makin, tFoH, p. 832 (590)—One of Myrelle's four Warders; he serves as one of her husbands, as well. He is young, skinny, and has blond hair. See also Berengari, Myrelle.
  1101. Avar Hachami, tFoH, p. 832 (590)—One of Myrelle's four Warders. He also serves as a husband to her. He has a hawk-like nose and thick, gray-streaked mustaches. He was previously bonded to another sister, who was killed. He grew up in Saldaea. See also Berengari, Myrelle.
  1102. Therva Maresis, tFoH, p. 836 (592)—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. She was present at the Healing of Siuan and Leane. She is slim, and has a long nose.
  1103. Nisao Dachen, tFoH, p. 836 (593)—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. She agreed to assist Myrelle with helping Lan because of problems she foresaw with his mind. Her specialty as a Yellow sister is psychiatric problems. She tried to help Egwene with her headaches, but could not find the cause of them. Her Warder is named Sarin. She is smart and observant. She swore fealty to Egwene, and was subsequently sent to the Black Tower to establish contact with them. She has not been seen since. See also Hoigan, Sarin.
  1104. Dagdara Finchey, tFoH, p. 836 (593)—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. She is as wide as most men and taller than most. She fled the Tower when Siuan was deposed. She was Romanda's choice for the seat in the Hall that ultimately went to Salita. She Healed Egwene once when she twister her ankle. Verin revealed that she is of the Black Ajah.
  1105. Emara, tFoH, p. 842 (596)—Small, thin Accepted with gray eyes and a quick grin. She grew up in Illian. She dislikes Siuan and Leane. It looks as though a strong wind would blow her over, but she has a firmer hand with the novices under her than most sisters do.

    Chapter 51: News Comes to Cairhien

    Dice icon
  1106. Selande Darengil, tFoH, p. 848 (601)—One of Faile's servants, one of the Cairhienin women who tries to imitate the Aiel Maidens of the Spear, only using swords instead. She is the leader of the Cha Faile (Falcon's Talon) sept of the Aiel imitators. Selande is as tall as Perrin's chest (that is, very short), and has a tail of dark hair at the nape of her neck. She is very pale, and takes her sword training very seriously. She is among those stranded with Faile in the Blasted Lands. She commands the scouts in Vanin's absence.
  1107. Berewin, tFoH, p. 868 (615)—A woman Aviendha dragged out of Rand's chamber by the hair when she caught her trying to sneak in.

    Glossary

    Wheel of Time icon

    Lord of Chaos

    Lord of Chaos
  1115. Lord of Chaos, LoC, p. 10 (ix)—Entity that controls all things in chaos. It could refer to Rand al'Thor, the Dark One, or chaos in general. The phrase is “let the Lord of Chaos rule,” and comes from a chant in the Fourth Age. It is also the subject of the Dark One's command to the Forsaken: “Let the Lord of Chaos Rule.”

    Prologue: The First Message

    Wheel of Time icon
  1116. Shaidar Haran, LoC, p. 14 (3)—A Myrddraal of special abilities who escorts the Chosen (i.e., Forsaken) to the Pit of Doom to converse with the Dark One. He is head and shoulders taller than all other Myrddraal, who are the height of an average man and all the same height. His name means “Hand of the Dark” in the Old Tongue; most Myrddraal names come from the Trolloc tongue. He is given special consideration; the ceiling of the entrance to the Pit of Doom does not brush his head as it does everyone else's. He is the only known servant of the Dark One to have power over the Chosen (other than Moridin, who is one of the Chosen himself). It was Shaidar Haran himself who freed Semirhage from her captivity; he may have set Semirhage up to be killed because the Dark One (or perhaps Moridin) was displeased with her. See also Ba'alzamon; Moridin; Nae'blis; Shai'tan.
  1117. Nae'blis, LoC, p. 16 (5)—The one who would stand only a step below the Dark One on the Day of Return, commanding all Darkfriends in the Dark One's name. The position was promised to Demandred if he did well in his duties, as well as Sammael, but it is likely that all the Chosen were offered the position if they did well. The Nae'blis has been chosen: Moridin, the reincarnation of Ishamael. Other Forsaken realize that this appointment only lasts as long as the Dark One is pleased with Moridin and Moridin remains alive, however. See also Demandred; Haran, Shaidar; Ishamael; Moridin; Shai'tan.
  1118. Tiana Noselle, LoC, p. 21 (13)—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She served as Mistress of Novices among the Aes Sedai who fled the White Tower. She is short and slight, and has large brown eyes and a dimple. She looks young despite her ageless Aes Sedai features. See also Bayanar, Sheriam; Brehon, Silviana; Mistress of Novices.
  1119. The Spider, LoC, p. 24 (17)—Nickname given to Moghedien, used by enemies and allies alike. The nickname refers to the name Moghedien, which was a highly venomous spider alive during the Age of Legends. See Moghedien.
  1120. Janya Frende, LoC, p. 25 (20)—Formerly a Sitter for the Brown Ajah among the rebel Aes Sedai. She is extraordinarily neat, especially for a Brown—every one of her short, dark hairs is exactly in place at all times. She was one of only three Sitters to stand for war with Tar Valon when the vote was first called for. She offered unwavering support for Egwene during the Tower's division, and now that it has reunited, she retains her seat in the Hall.
  1121. Carenna, LoC, p. 26 (20)—Aes Sedai of unknown Ajah. She was very interested in the eavesdropping trick that Nynaeve revealed; she had already discovered it for herself, but was trying to hide the fact.
  1122. Perrin Goldeneyes, LoC, p. 30 (27)—Nickname given to Perrin Aybara by people in the Two Rivers; they chose it because of his wolf-like eye color. See Aybara, Perrin.
  1123. Sharmad Zeffar, LoC, p. 31 (28)—Coppery-skinned, plump woman who came to the Two Rivers after the Trolloc attacks subsided. She fled Arad Doman when the Seanchan attacked Almoth Plain and civil war broke out in her homeland. She and Rhea Avin are fighting over Wil al'Seen. See also al'Seen, Wil; Rhea.
  1124. Master Hornval, LoC, p. 33 (30)—Tile-maker from Tarabon who came to Emond's Field after the battle with the Trollocs. His trade produced previously unheard of competition with Cenn Buie's thatch, causing some friction.
  1125. Jon Ayellin, LoC, p. 33 (32)—Large, bald man from the Two Rivers. He and Thad Torfinn dispute the boundaries of their farms. He has joined Tam and the others to help Perrin.
  1126. Espara Soman, LoC, p. 34 (32)—Woman who came to Emond's Field with an interest in herbs.
  1127. Liale Mosrana, LoC, p. 34 (32)—Woman from Tarabon who fled to the Two Rivers.
  1128. Elwinn Taron, LoC, p. 34 (33)—Wisdom of Deven Ride. She is short and round and has a motherly smile.
  1129. Milla al'Azar, LoC, p. 34 (33)—Woman from Taren Ferry.
  1130. Therille Marza, LoC, p. 37 (37)—Faile's personal tailor in Emond's Field.
  1131. Hal, LoC, p. 38 (38)—One of Gawyn's Younglings.
  1132. Jisao Hamora, LoC, p. 40 (42)—Former member of Gawyn's Younglings. He wore a silver Tower on his collar, the mark of a veteran fighter who saw the riots in the White Tower along with Gawyn. He was little more than a boy when the conflict started, but he is a seasoned veteran now. He has since been bonded as a Warder.
  1133. Benji Dalfor, LoC, p. 40 (42)—One of the Younglings. He is barely old enough to have to shave regularly. He has a scar on his cheek that he got while fighting in the Tower.
  1134. Hal Moir, LoC, p. 40 (42)—One of the Younglings. He is two years older than Jisao.
  1135. Arwin, LoC, p. 41 (43)—One of the Younglings.
  1136. Coiren Saeldain, LoC, p. 42 (44)—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She is plump and pompous, and led the embassy Elaida sent to Rand in Cairhien. She was captured and shielded during the battle at Dumai's Wells. She was designated to take over that group if something happened to both Galina and Katerine.
  1137. Mil Tesen, LoC, p. 43 (46)—A peddler who meets with Gawyn in his camp and brings him the rumor of Morgase's death.
  1138. Tarva, LoC, p. 44 (48)—Gray-haired Shaido Wise One; she is actually Therava, but Coiren could not remember it correctly and did not care. See Therava.
  1139. Erian Boroleos, LoC, p. 44 (48)—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She assisted in capturing Rand. She had four Warders until Rand killed two of them for harming Min. She was captured by Rand in the battle at Dumai's Wells. She is pale and lovely. She is now one of Cadsuane's companions. See also Bartol; Rashan.
  1140. Nesune Bihara, LoC, p. 44 (48)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She is one of the Aes Sedai now sworn to Rand; she assisted in his kidnapping. She always listens to all sides before drawing any conclusions, and she remembers everything. She is slender, has black eyes, and grew up in Kandor. Min had a viewing of her: she will found a library. She was later one of Cadsuane's companions. She is one of a handful of people to ever be able to ignore Cadsuane. She retained her loyalty to Elaida until the bitter end, though she is now part of Aviendha's team that protects Rand, suggesting that she was loyal to the Tower, or perhaps Cadsuane, not Elaida.
  1141. Galina Casban, LoC, p. 45 (48)—Former head of the Red Ajah, now taken prisoner by the Shaido. She has actually been of the Black Ajah for all but five of her almost ninety years wearing the shawl; she is of high standing among the Black sisters. Galina has long black hair without a touch of gray in it. She is pretty, but nowhere near beautiful. She led the expedition to bring Rand to Tar Valon after he was shielded. She was captured by the Shaido after the battle at Dumai's Wells, and became a prisoner of Sevanna and Therava. She claims to have helped break two Amyrlin's as a Black sister—one (Siuan Sanche) was deposed and stilled, and the other (Tamra Ospenya) was made to appear that she had died in her sleep. She led the circle that stilled Siuan. Pevara firmly did not want to believe that Galina was Black, despite Talene's suspicions that she was. When Galina's loyalties were proven, presumably by an inconsistency between her notes and her actions, Pevara went into a rage for a full day and now vows to strangle Galina with her bare hands. Galina attempted to escape Sevanna's captivity by exploiting a loophole in the oath she was forced to swear on a binder (similar to the Oath Rod): she made Faile acquire the rod for her and give it to her (since she was forced to swear an oath to never steal it) and then betrayed Faile and fled. She was captured by Therava and ordered never to attempt to escape again; by her Oath, she is now Therava's slave forever. The White Tower presumes her to be dead at the battle of Dumai's Wells. She was on Verin's list of sisters of the Black Ajah. See also Alyse; Feir, Tarna; Lina; Minly, Talene; Ospenya, Tamra; Sanche, Siuan; Sevanna; Tazanovni, Pevara.
  1142. Therava, LoC, p. 45 (48)—Wise One of the Shaido Aiel. She is stronger in the One Power than any Aes Sedai in the White Tower. She was the one who captured Galina Casban after the battle at Dumai's Wells. She has very good eyes. She is one of the Wise Ones on Sevanna's side. Her appearance is pure Aiel, in stark contrast to Sevanna: gold and ivory jewelry, no finger rings or gems. She is taller than most men, has dark red hair touched with white streaks, and has blue eyes.
  1143. Desaine, LoC, p. 46 (50)—Late Wise One of the Shaido Aiel. She opposed Sevanna's appointment to Wise One, and as punishment Sevanna and her followers killed her to prevent any further opposition. Her death was blamed on Aes Sedai. See also Dailin; Meira; Norlea; Rhiale; Sevanna; Therava; Tion.
  1144. Jen, LoC, p. 53 (61)—A merchant from Four Kings, and Paitr's uncle. See also Conel, Paitr.
  1145. Sebban Balwer, LoC, p. 54 (62)—Formerly Pedron Niall's “dry little stick of a secretary.” He was in reality the Master of Spies for the Children of the Light; his identity was known only to Niall. His skills have proven useful to his new traveling group, Perrin and company. He has a pinched face and a perpetual stoop; he looks like a roosting vulture. To Perrin's nose, he smells musty—like an old book. Perrin has been puzzled by his apparent hatred toward the Children; he does not know of Balwer's previous affiliation. Balwer has subsequently lent his services to the Dragon Reborn. He gravitates toward those in power. See also Niall, Pedron; Omerna, Abdel.
  1146. Barid Bel Medar, LoC, p. 57 (66)—Name that Demandred was born with and used during the Age of Legends (before dedicating his life to serve the Dark One). He uses the name in an attempt to draw Lews Therin out to face him, man to man. See Demandred.
  1147. Osan'gar, LoC, p. 59 (70)—Name given to the reincarnation of one of the Forsaken. It was the left-hand dagger in a form of dueling popular right after the creation of the Bore. The sport fell from common practice, since almost invariably both duelists died from the slow poison on the daggers. Osan'gar states that he helped make the Trollocs, indicating that in his past life he was Aginor. Osan'gar was killed by the circle controlled by Elza Penfell at the cleansing of saidin. See also Aginor; Aran'gar; Dashiva, Corlan.
  1148. Aran'gar, LoC, p. 59 (70)—Name given to the reincarnation of Balthamel. Aran'gar was the right-hand dagger in a form of dueling popular right after the creation of the Bore. The sport fell from common practice, since almost invariably both duelists died from the slow poison on the daggers. The other Forsaken consider Balthamel's new body a fine joke; the soul of Balthamel now occupies the body of a beautiful young woman. She still channels saidin, and now serves as Delana's maid. Delana does not know that she is one of the Chosen reincarned, just that she stands far above her among the Darkfriends. Aran'gar, as Balthamel, specialized in primitive cultures. Aran'gar's cover was blown when she tried to touch the ward against eavesdropping around the meeting of the Hall of the Tower in exile, at which time Romanda Cassin deduced that she and Delana were Darkfriends. She has since been hiding, along with Delana, at Natrin's Barrow with Graendal. She was killed by Rand with the giant weave of balefire he used to destroy Natrin's Barrow. Her death meant the Compulsion that Graendal asked her and Delana to implant on Lord Ramshalan's mind vanished—Rand thought Graendal herself had implanted the Compulsion, so Graendal shielded Aran'gar so she could not escape. Aran'gar is now very dead, as is Delana. See also Balthamel; Mosalaine, Delana; Osan'gar; Saranov, Halima.

  1149. Jalani, LoC, p. 66 (77)—Maiden of the Spear, part of Rand's honor guard. She is the youngest among them, only sixteen or seventeen—despite this, she treats Rand as she would a younger brother.
  1150. Arymilla Marne, LoC, p. 66 (78)—Brown-eyed Andoran noble with a habit of fainting. She opposed Morgase during the Succession. The only real reason Rand kept her around in Caemlyn was to push others into supporting Dyelin; no one wanted Andor in the hands of Arymilla. Once Elayne returned to Andor, she exiled Arymilla as her mother had. However, Arymilla learned of where Naean and Elenia were being detained in Murandy and rescued them. This debt of sorts bound House Arawn and House Sarand to support Arymilla's claim to the Lion Throne. She had the support of five major houses of Andor at one point. She is plump, verging on stout, has a vacuous smile, and brown eyes that are almost always wide with interest. After her failed attempt to take the Throne, Elayne had her imprisoned; she is still plump despite her captivity. She might even be pretty if not for the rags she now wears. Her sign is four silver moons on a twilight blue field. See also Arawn, Naean; Sarand, Elenia.
  1151. General Souran Maravaile, LoC, p. 66 (78)—Artur Hawkwing's greatest general. He was the husband of Ishara, the first Queen of Andor. He was one of the greatest swordsmen to ever live. He was the leader of the seige of Tar Valon for the final year of it. See also Maravaile, Ishara.
  1152. Queen Ishara Maravaile, LoC, p. 66 (78)—First Queen of Andor, from whom all other queens are descended. Her husband was Souran Maravaile, one of Artur Hawkwing's best generals. She governed the Province of Andor until Hawkwing's empire finally fell apart and Andor became an independent nation. All of the Andoran nobles are related to her somehow, although most people would not even consider the ones who hold the closest relation to her to be related at all. None of her sons lived past age twenty, hence the tradition of only having a queen in Andor. See also Casalain, Endara; Maravaile, Souran; Ramedar, Joal.
  1153. Lady Naean Arawn, LoC, p. 67 (79)—Slim, palely beautiful Andoran noble with big, blue eyes and waves of black hair. She sneers a lot. She opposed Morgase during the Succession. Dyelin exiled her from Caemlyn, as Morgase did long ago, for attempting to take the Lion Throne. She still planned to take it from Elayne, though once she was rescued from Murandy by Arymilla's men, her claim vanished. Her House then supported Arymilla for the Lion Throne and the Rose Crown of Andor. After Arymilla's attempt to take the Throne failed, Elayne imprisoned her, though she seemed broken before she was imprisoned. See also Marne, Arymilla; Sarand, Elenia.
  1154. Lord Henren, LoC, p. 67 (80)—Blocky, bald, hard-eyed Andoran noble.
  1155. Lady Carlys Ankerin, LoC, p. 67 (80)—Andoran noble. She and her House support Elenia and House Sarand. Her sign is paired white leopards. See also Sarand, Elenia.
  1156. Lady Daerilla Raened, LoC, p. 67 (80)—Andoran noble. She and her minor House support Naean and House Arawn. Her sign is five silver stars. See also Arawn, Naean.
  1157. Lady Deira ni Ghaline t'Bashere, LoC, p. 69 (82)—Faile's mother. She has raven-black hair winged with white, and is about a head taller than her husband Davram, the Marshal-General of Saldaea. She was stabbed by a man while he was ransacking her tent, but she survived. She and Davram rarely yell, but they have a very upfront method of conversing with each other that often makes others somewhat uncomfortable. She did not approve of her daughter's marriage at first, but was eventually convinced to accept it. She insisted on training Zarine (i.e., Faile) in the ways of court intrigue and politics, which she hated. However, Faile has come to realize that she would be lost without her mother's instruction. With Tenobia dead, Deira is now Queen of Saldaea and her husband King, though they have refused the Crown until the battle is over, deferring command to Lan because of Davram's incident with Hessalam. See also Bashere, Davram t'Ghaline; Bashere, Faile; Bashere, Zarine.
  1158. Tumad Ahzkan, LoC, p. 73 (86)—Heavy-shouldered, hatchet-nosed young soldier, a head taller than his commander Davram Bashere. He has a black beard and mustaches in the Saldaean style. He brings the news of Mazrim Taim's arrival to Rand.

    Chapter 2: A New Arrival

    Aes Sedai icon
  1159. Musar, LoC, p. 76 (93)—Man who tried to kill Mazrim Taim while he still called himself the Dragon Reborn. Taim let him live, and sent him back to Bashere.
  1160. Hachari, LoC, p. 76 (93)—A man who tried to kill Mazrim Taim while he still called himself the Dragon Reborn. Taim let him live, and sent him back to Bashere.
  1161. Gorin Rogad, LoC, p. 79 (96)—False Dragon who was burned alive by the Illianers who caught him about four years ago. See also Dragon Reborn.
  1162. Muad Cheade, LoC, p. 81 (100)—Former Marshal-General of Saldaea. Bashere says he was “mad as a hare in spring thaw”—he searched his bodyservant twice a day for poison, and drank nothing but vinegar and water (which he claimed were sovereign against the poison he was being fed). He once had a grove of oaks chopped down because they were looking at him the wrong way, and then insisted that his troops give them decent burials and funerals as well. However, he never lost a battle, so his insanity was tolerated.

    Chapter 3: A Woman's Eyes

    Dragon's Fang icon
  1163. Eben Hopwil, LoC, p. 86 (106)—Skinny young man of about sixteen or so who comes for Rand's amnesty. He has a big nose and ears to match.

  1165. Damer Flinn, LoC, p. 86 (106)—Crease-faced old man with a limp, now one of the Asha'man. He is bald with a fringe of white hair around the edge of his head. He was in the Queen's Guards until he took a Murandian lance in the thigh, and ever since has desired to help people with injuries. He came for the amnesty to see if he could learn to Heal; as it turns out, he is very Talented, and has developed methods of Healing that have been forgotten since the Age of Legends. He managed partially to Heal Rand's wound in his side, to separate it from the rest of his body so the evil does not seep into it anymore. Since he was placed on Taim's Traitors' List, he had been in hiding—he did not assist in the attack on Rand, but Rand thought it better to be safe than to have him killed. He has since been bonded as Warder to Corele, and attempted to teach Samitsu to do with saidar what he does with saidin. He was one of only three full Asha'man to travel with Rand in Tear. Rand trusts him, and hopes to go to him some day to learn Healing. See also Hovian, Corele; Tamagowa, Samitsu.
  1166. Jur Grady, LoC, p. 88 (106)—Stocky, dark-eyed man, about seven years older than Rand. He comes for the Amnesty. See also Grady, Sora.
  1167. Sora Grady, LoC, p. 88 (109)—Jur's wife. She disapproved of her husband's decision to come for the amnesty, but lives with it. She is somehow connected to Jur by a bond that the Asha'man believe is similar to the bond between Warder and Aes Sedai. She accepted Jur's decision to become an Asha'man because they thought he had little choice—his father could channel, and the Red Ajah found him shortly after Jur was born. He did not live long after they gentled him. Now that the taint is gone, he is anxious to tell Sora that they can continue to live out their lives without fear that he will go insane. See also Grady, Gadren; Grady, Jur.
  1168. Kely Huldin, LoC, p. 90 (111)—A weaver of about age thirty who comes to Rand for the Amnesty.
  1169. Desora, LoC, p. 93 (116)—Maiden of the Spear of the Musara sept of the Reyn Aiel. She had golden hair, and had a habit of hiding her smile behind her hand. She died in an attempt on Rand's life by assassins for the Children of the Light.
  1170. Liah, LoC, p. 93 (116)—Maiden of the Spear of the Cosaida sept of the Chareen Aiel with a scar across her face. When Rand came to Shadar Logoth to set wards on the Waygate there, Liah got separated from the group and was never found. Presuming she was dead, Rand took the group back to Caemlyn. When Rand returned to Shadar Logoth weeks later to fight Sammael, he discovered that Liah was still alive, if not completely sane anymore. He killed her with balefire when she was attacked by Mashadar. She is now featured on Rand's list of women, the deaths of whom for which he feels responsible.

    Chapter 4: A Sense of Humor

    Ravens icon
  1171. Leiran, LoC, p. 97 (123)—A Thunder Walker of the Cosaida sept of the Chareen Aiel. He has blond hair and blue eyes. Enaila gave up being Far Dareis Mai to lay a bridal wreath at his feet, which he picked up. See also Enaila.
  1172. Hu, LoC, p. 98 (123)—An “irascible old farmer.” He is the subject of a joke Rand tells the Maidens in an attempt to prove that in fact they are the ones who lack a sense of humor, not him.
  1173. Wil, LoC, p. 98 (123)—Hu's neighbor. He is a co-subject of a joke Rand tells the Maidens in an attempt to prove that in fact they are the ones who lack a sense of humor, not him.

  1180. Harnan, LoC, p. 121 (158)—Lantern-jawed, sturdily-built Tairen Redarm, a file-leader in the Band of the Red Hand. He has a heavy jaw, a long-suffering expression, and a crude hawk tatoo on his left cheek.

  1184. Olver, LoC, p. 122 (159)—Boy of nine who once sat on the wrong horse and almost had his neck broken for the trouble. He was adopted after a fashion by Mat and his Band of the Red Hand. His parents were killed when the Shaido ravaged Cairhien. He is short, pale, and quite ugly. He likes to chase women. He is a good horse racer, and traveled extensively with Mat. He has a certain fascination with the game Snakes and Foxes, and does not seem to understand that there is no way to win without cheating. Olver seems to think there is a way—it just involves being luckier than any average person would ever be. He is currently part of Faile's patrol, protecting the Tower supplies. See also Adria; Gillin; Jameine; Merici; Neilyn; Riselle.
  1185. Mistress of the Ships, LoC, p. 124 (162)—Commander of the entire fleet of Sea Folk vessels. The post was held by Nesta din Reas Two Moons until she was executed by the Seanchan for rebellion.

  1189. Lord Ramsid, LoC, p. 130 (171)—One of Graendal's stunt artists. He is the brother of Alsalam, the king of Arad Doman. See also Almadar, Alsalam Saeed.
  1190. Chiape, LoC, p. 131 (171)—One of Graendal's “pets.” She was the Sh'boan of Shara, their equivalent to an Empress. She is newly widowed, meaning she took the duty of Sh'boan from her previous husband, the Sh'botay. See also Shaofan.

  1192. King Alsalam Saeed Almadar, LoC, p. 131 (173)—King of Arad Doman. He had been a good ruler for over twenty years, though the Council had recently smuggled him out of Bandar Eban—after leaving the city, he seemed to have taken on the notion that he was the Rebirth of Artur Hawkwing. He was believed to either be dead or one of Graendal's playthings, though he has since turned up very much alive and in control of his own mind. Elaida also tried to capture him and keep him under White Tower control. He has since joined the nations at the Field of Merrilor, much to the surprise of Egwene and the Aes Sedai (who presumed him dead). See also Ramsid.
  1193. Osana, LoC, p. 137 (182)—Lady of Arad Doman. She owns a hunting lodge, though her true hunt is for men with power. Her lodge is desolate and run-down, now.

  1195. Ebram, LoC, p. 138 (183)—A tall, well-made man from Arad Doman. He would be in Graendal's collection if he was more than a merchant's son.

  1197. Gera, LoC, p. 151 (202)—One of the cooks in Salidar. She dreamed her way into Tel'aran'rhiod for a brief moment while the six sisters and two Accepted were there; she was dreaming of being an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah, much to the dismay of Carlinya.
  1198. Queen Tylin Quintara Mitsobar, LoC, p. 155 (208)—By the Grace of the Light, Queen of Altara, Mistress of the Four Winds, Guardian of the Sea of Storms, High Seat of House Mitsobar, until her recent death. Her kingdom was small, and she only ruled a portion of it; the rest was governed by nobles who were not necessarily loyal to her. She was the second from her House to sit on the throne—this was the maximum traditionally, and the only House to hold it for four generations fell so fast from power that it could not recover. She was advised by Merilille Ceandevin of the Gray Ajah. She was a widow, and did not plan to marry again. She took an interest in Mat Cauthon, and contrary to Mat's usual tactic of chasing women, she chased and caught him. The two were lovers for some time; Mat thought she was a very fun quarry. When the Seanchan invaded her nation, she cooperated with them out of necessity—they let her keep her position of authority, but she was a puppet of the Crystal Throne. When the Sea Folk fought the Seanchan, destroying much of Ebou Dar in the process, Tylin suggested Mat use the opportunity to escape the city, and tie her up under the bed to make it look like he had to restrain her to escape. While she was bound and gagged under the bed, the gholam came, presumably to kill Mat, and she fell easy prey to it. She was found by Suroth's people the next morning, torn limb-from-limb. See also Cauthon, Matrim; Mitsobar, Beslan.

He is the “spymaster” for the Whitecloaks, although he is a decoy; even he does not know that the the real Master of Spies is Balwer.

He was killed shortly afterward by Eamon Valda. See also Balwer, Sebban.

    Chapter 12: Questions and Answers

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  1235. Delana Mosalaine, LoC, p. 218 (299)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah, openly a Sitter for the Gray Ajah in the “Little Tower.” She used to be the only Sitter that Egwene thought she could count on for her support. She is round, and has a deep voice for a woman and pale silver-colored hair. She is from Shienar, and has no Warder. Delana started to cause trouble in the Hall, especially with her demand to make a formal declaration that Elaida is Black Ajah. She was willing to discuss any subject in the Hall, whereas most Sitters would not touch topics such as the Black Ajah with a ten-foot pole. Her pale blue eyes give nothing away. Like many of her fellow members of the Hall, she is young to be a Sitter. Her maid is named Halima, and she often lent her to Egwene; Halima was the only person who seemed to be able to make Egwene's headaches go away. Halima, of course, was causing Egwene's headaches, but she was not aware of that. Delana went pale and excused herself from the Hall when Narishma reported that a woman was able to channel saidin and then detected a someone attempting to break through the ward against eavesdropping with saidin. Romanda subsequently put two and two together, and demanded Delana be arrested. She and Halima had already left the camp. Delana was also on Verin's list of Black sisters. Since leaving the rebels, Delana has been in hiding at Natrin's Barrow with Aran'gar and Graendal; according to Graendal, she and Aran'gar are in a relationship of sorts. She was killed by Rand's massive balefire weave that destroyed the Barrow and its inhabitants. See also Saranov, Halima.

She was in league with High Lord Darlin of Tear and Toram Riatin of Cairhien in opposition to Rand. They have since reconciled their differences. Min had a viewing of her indicating that she and Darlin will marry, but only after she leads him on a “merry chase.” She is now in Tear.

Min read his book, Reason and Unreason, in an attempt to understand better why he was murdered; she is now making her way through the rest of his collection. Rand cannot make up from down in Fel's books, but Min finds them fascinating. See also Farshaw, Elmindreda.

He is a good rider, and Mat thinks he could steal a hen pheasant's eggs with her sitting on them (although he would likely steal her, too)—he also thinks Vanin could steal a horse out from under a nobleman and he would not know it for two days. He has a large space between his front teeth. He went with Mat to Ebou Dar, and escaped the city with Mat to travel with Valan Luca's show. Mat discovered him by asking the me he did catch stealing who the best thieves were. He then asked the men they named the same thing. Vanin was the one named by the third or fourth group; he is the best Mat has ever seen. Mat sent him with Joline and the other Aes Sedai to Tar Valon to gather information. Vanin steps lightly around Juilin; the thief and the thief-taker do not get along.

He is loyal to Rand, not Taim. After being placed on the Traitor's List, he went in to hiding—he did not assist in the attack on Rand, but Rand thought it better to be safe than have him killed. He has since been bonded as a Warder by Merise. He wielded Callandor at the cleansing of saidin, though the circle was controlled by one of the women. Merise took away his dragon pin at first, claiming it was not appropriate for him to wear it in lieu of his new responsibilites as her Warder—Jahar was very angry with her for this, and eventually learned to give him respect appropriate to his position. Jahar was instrumental in exposing Halima and Delana; he detected a man trying to pierce the ward against eavesdropping around the Hall of the Tower, after which Delana promptly excused herself and she and Halima fled the camp. He traveled with Rand in Tear as one of three full Asha'man in the group. Rand realized that trusting Narishma was a near-insane risk, but one that was evidently worth taking. It appears that his trust was not misplaced. Narishma mentioned to Rand that he had not told him everything about how to disarm the wards he left around Callandor. Rand was convinced he had told him everything, which is puzzling. Perhaps Rand merely forgot, or perhaps Rand had left it warded against disarmament by, say, someone other than him, forgot about it before sending Narishma. Narishma's loyalty seems to indicate that he is not a Darkfriend. See also Haindehl, Merise.

  1330. Salita Toranes, LoC, p. 425 (596)—Dark-skinned Sitter for the Yellow Ajah among the rebel Aes Sedai. She is from Tear, has a round face, and is almost as dark as the Sea Folk. She was raised to a Sitter after the sisters banded together in Salidar. She suggested a tax on the towns the Aes Sedai passed through to raise money for the ever-growing army. She has been an Aes Sedai only 35 years, which is too young to be a sitter—most sitters have worn the shawl over 100 years by the time they become sitters. She thinks it is wrong to sell objects made from cuendillar that they have just made recently. She also thinks the Yellows are being unfairly drawn from Healing to make the objects (as if her Ajah's duty was more important than that of other Ajahs).
  1331. Magla Daronos, LoC, p. 425 (596)—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. She is a Sitter. When the Tower was divided, she was firmly in Romanda's camp. She has broad shoulders. She grew up in Illian. Her Warder is Rorik. See also Rorik.

  1334. Lucilde, LoC, p. 433 (607)—Lanky novice brought to Salidar from Tar Valon. She announces Halima's arrival to Delana and company.
  1335. Halima Saranov, LoC, p. 433 (607)—Egwene's former evening maid when she was still in the rebel camp. She was actually Delana's maid, but she lent her to Egwene at night to help Egwene with her chronic headaches. Halima was actually Aran'gar, a reincarnated Forsaken who channels saidin despite being female. She was causing Egwene's headaches, and then making them subside, in order to keep herself close to Egwene. It worked—she usually slept on a pallet in Egwene's tent. She was stunningly beautiful, with big green eyes in a perfect face and a full, firm bosom. As she was posing as a poorly educated serving girl, she formed her letters with the awkwardness of a young child. She had developed a fondness for low-cut bodices. She got sloppy about bossing Delana around in public, leading Romanda and others to believe that Delana and Halima were “pillow friends.” Eventually, Romana saw the truth: Halima and Delana were both Darkfriends. Halima (Arangar) was killed by the extraordinarily large weave of balefire that Rand used in an attempt to kill Graendal. See also Aran'gar; Balthamel; Mosalaine, Delana.

  1345. Faiselle, LoC, p. 468 (660)—Sitter in the Hall of the Tower. She fled the Tower when Siuan was deposed, and later disapproved of Egwene being raised Amyrlin.

  1346. Kwamesa, LoC, p. 473 (666)—Former Sitter for the Gray Ajah, the youngest Sitter in the Hall of the Little Tower. She is dark and slender, and has strength in the Power; she was on the same level as Sheriam. She tries to seem tall even though she is not. She grew up in Arafel, and she seems to put great store in ceremony. She is far too young to be a Sitter, at least under normal circumstances. She has a sharp nose. It is not known whether she retained her seat in the Hall after the Tower was reunited. She is now in charge of protecting the dragons from the Sharan army. She was killed by Demandred with balefire while he was the head of a full circle of 72; the balefire was strong enough to burn her thread out of the Pattern for several hours.

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  1349. Chesa, LoC, p. 477 (670)—One of Egwene's maids as the Amyrlin Seat. Egwene often let her sit in on meetings with Sheriam, her Keeper of the Chronicles, because her unexpected chatter often unsettled Sheriam just enough for Egwene to sidestep what Sheriam was suggesting in a discrete way. She has not stopped weeping since Egwene was captured, though she has kept her tent clean in the Amyrlin's absence.
  1350. Kaylin, LoC, p. 479 (674)—One of the servants in Salidar.

She worked closely with the Kin, and knew of their existence despite not being a part of them. She has a regal presence, and has a touch of gray in her hair. It is widely speculated that Setalle Anan used to be Aes Sedai. She is thereby “She Who Is No Longer” in the Wise Ones' dreams. See also Anan, Jasfer; Anan, Leral.

    Wheel of Time icon
  1389. Beslan Mitsobar, LoC, p. 603 (849)—King of Altara, and son of the late Queen Tylin. He is mild-mannered, has olive skin, a soft voice, sharp eyes, and black hair to his shoulders. He was of course a puppet of the Seanchan government while acting as king of Altara, but it did make him the equal of Suroth under the law. He was secretly plotting a resistance to the Seanchan, but changed his loyalties when confronted with the choice of loyalty or death. His head is now shaven, in the manner of the Blood, leaving only a dark strip on top. Seven of his fingernails are lacquered, one more than anyone this side of the Aryth Ocean with the exception of Fortuona herself. Beslan has not plotted against her since their last confrontation, which surprises Fortuona—all of her rivals in Seanchan would have plotted against her given the same circumstances. See also Mitsobar, Tylin Quintara.

The real Ledar wrote A Study of Men, Women, and the One Power Among Humans about three hundred years ago. See also Koimal; Loial; Manfor, Karldin; Shandin; Underhill.

    Prologue: Lightnings

    Wheel of Time icon
  1426. Lerman, aCoS, p. 14 (2)—Chief mason for Elaida's palace. He stared in disbelief when Elaida told him her palace was to have a spire ten spans higher than the Tower itself. However, being that it is Elaida he is dealing with, he will have to find a way....
  1427. Cemaile Sorenthaine, aCoS, p. 15 (3)—Amyrlin Seat about three hundred years ago (two Amyrlins after Gerra Kishar). She was raised from the Gray Ajah. She was considered weak as Amyrlin. In memory of the days before the Trolloc Wars when no ruler held a throne without the White Tower's approval, she had a gilded clock commissioned. The clock was taken down and forgotten in storage after she died, and it didn't reappear until Elaida put it back up when she was raised. The truth is worse than is generally known: Cemaile's tenure as Amyrlin would have been a complete disaster if the Ajah heads had not intervened. Long before the end of her reign, the most important decision they allowed her to make was which dress to wear. See also Amyrlin Seat.
  1428. Toveine Gazal, aCoS, p. 21 (12)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. She spent fifteen years away from the Tower until Elaida summoned her back to active service. She was formerly a Sitter for the Red. Elaida named her to lead the team of fifty sisters that she sent to Caemlyn to attempt to capture any men who can channel that they found. Unfortunately, she and Elaida drastically underestimated the number of men there would be, and Toveine is now Logain's “wife,” their equivalent to Warders (actually, Logain has two such wives now). Though she used to hate all men who could channel, and Logain in particular, she now fawns over him. She is short, and has coppery skin. Taim and his cronies succeeded in Turning her to the Shadow. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; Ablar, Logain; Gabrelle.
  1429. Lirene Doirellin, aCoS, p. 21 (12)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. She resigned as a Sitter fifteen years ago and went into “voluntary” retreat. She is now nervous and shifty. She grew up in Cairhien; she is slightly shorter than Egwene.
  1430. Jimar Chubain, aCoS, p. 24 (15)—High Captain of the White Tower Guard. Alviarin had previously suggested that they order him to increase his recruitment efforts to expand the guard; Elaida thought it unnecessary, but that was more of just being blind to what anyone else said. Once the Tower was reunited, there was talk that Gareth Bryne would take his place as High Captain of the Tower Guard. However, Bryne was not interested in the post, and Siuan advised Egwene not to make a change, as it might sow resentment in the Guards. She left Chubain in place, though he still seems to be protective of his job. He looks younger than he his, which is in his forties; Egwene has always thought him too young for his position. His hair is all black, without a touch of gray.

  1437. Meira, aCoS, p. 30 (24)—Wise One of the Shaido Aiel, loyal to Sevanna. She is not as hard as Therava, but that is not saying much. She is shorter than Faile. She has a round mouth and blue eyes like sapphires. She is from the White Cliff sept.
  1438. Estalaine, aCoS, p. 33 (28)—Angular-shouldered Wise One of the Shaido Aiel. She died during the attack on the Aes Sedai encampment near Dumai's Wells.
  1439. Dorailla, aCoS, p. 33 (28)—Wise One of the Shaido Aiel.

  1443. Belinde, aCoS, p. 36 (31)—Wise One of the Shaido Aiel. She has pale blue eyes, a glaring face, and a bony appearance. She is particularly nasty to Galina.
  1444. Modarra, aCoS, p. 36 (31)—Wise One of the Shaido Aiel. She would be slim if she was not taller than Someryn. Since she is, she can only be called lean, and pretty.
  1445. Berisha Terakuni, aCoS, p. 38 (35)—Lean, hard-eyed, hard-faced Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah from Arafel. She was part of Elaida's group of followers and advisors that deposed Siuan, and also part of the group of sisters that captured Egwene. She has a reputation for offering the strictest and often harshest interpretation of Tower Law. She inspects Faile's wagon befor they set off for Merrilor. She always seems perpetually dissatisfied, perhaps upset at being left out of the fighting.

  1447. Norine Dovarna, aCoS, p. 38 (35)—Big-eyed, dreamy Aes Sedai of the White Ajah. She thinks that if the Keeper of the Chronicles is of the White Ajah, then she should be the Keeper of the Chronicles. She has few friends, perhaps none, even inside her own Ajah.

He wants every woman affiliated in any way with the White Tower hanged as of yesterday, every book that mentions Aes Sedai or the White Tower burned, and the very words banned. He would have had Morgase hanged for her months in the Tower if Niall had let him. He witnessed Eamon Valda's killing of Omerna subsequent to Niall's murder. He commands what Valda describes as an odd respect among the Children, even among those who despise the Questioners. He is backed by the Seanchan, which enfuriates Galad. See also Damodred, Galadedrid; Niall, Pedron; Valda, Eamon.

She has brown eyes and would be pretty except for the ageless look. She is pleasant for an Aes Sedai, and an almost fanatical devotion to Rand. She is secretly of the Black Ajah, but almost no one knows this. Her personal mission is to keep the Dragon Reborn alive until the Last Battle—if he is dead, how will the Great Lord of the Dark defeat him? See also Fearil.

  1455. Kenly Maerin, aCoS, p. 66 (72)—Young man from the Two Rivers. He is one of those who sometimes guards Perrin and Faile's tent. He is trying to grow a beard again, unfortunately.

  1460. Corlan Dashiva, aCoS, p. 84 (96)—One of the Asha'man. Rand chose him as his Asha'man companion after Dumai's Wells. He is allegedly from a farm in the Black Hills. He always seems to have his head in the clouds, and speaks the Old Tongue fluently. He was among the Asha'man who tried to kill Rand. Note: Dashiva's fluent speaking of the Old Tongue is an unusual trait. The only other non-Forsaken to speak the Old Tongue fluently are Mat and Birgitte. Based on this and other pieces of evidence, many have suggested that Dashiva is actually our friend Osan'gar, the reincarnation of Aginor. RAFO (read and find out).
  1461. M'Hael, aCoS, p. 89 (102)—Title used by Mazrim Taim as the head of the Black Tower. It means “Leader” in the Old Tongue.

M'Hael and his supporters in the Black Tower have been using groups of thirteen channelers and thirteen Myrddraal to Turn Soldiers, Dedicated, and Aes Sedai to serve the Shadow against their will.

He accompanied Rand after the episode at Dumai's Wells, and later left with Perrin to seek out Masema. He looks like a farmer. He cannot make a gateway large enough for a wagon. He has a wife, Sora, and a son, Gadren, back at the Black Tower. His father could channel as well, and was gentled shortly after he was born. He died a relatively short time later. He and Neald both almost died from a bubble of evil that struck Perrin's camp—the highly poisonous snakes appear to have attacked only those who could channel. He was pale and hollow-eyed from the effects of the illness for quite a while afterward. See also Grady, Gadren; Grady, Sora.

She is described as stately, with thick black hair and eyebrows and watery blue eyes. She was the daughter of a Lugard furniture maker, and is a bit above average height. When the Hall was arguing over who to raise as Amyrlin years back, it was deadlocked over four candidates who had each worn the shawl about fifty years; the Hall wanted an Amyrlin that was younger than the eighty or more years than were common. Seaine suggested Siuan Sanche, then a young Blue sister that had worn the shawl for only ten years; she was eventually raised. Later, Seaine was charged by Elaida to find Darkfriends in the Tower; Elaida hopes to expose Alviarin on the suspicion that she is Black Ajah. She and her friend since novicehood, Pevara, have successfully captured and bound with the Oath Rod a member of the Black Ajah, and have since dug out more Black sisters, even revealing that Galina Casban, head of the Red Ajah herself, was secretly Black. Seaine eventually found that she was set to her task because of a misunderstanding: Elaida asked her how she was getting along “with discovering proof that Alviarin entered a treasonous correspondence with the Dragon Reborn. Elaida's exact words were, “We can never be sure who has the shadow of treason in her heart, Seaine. Why, I suspect that someone arranged for an order of mine to be countermanded. And I have reason to believe that someone has communicated privately with Rand al'Thor; to what end, I cannot say, but that surely is treason against me, and against the Tower. I charge you to follow the stench of treason, no matter where it leads or how high, even to the Keeper herself. Yes, even to her. What you find, whoever it leads to, you will bring before the Amyrlin Seat alone, Seaine. No one else must know.” Seaine interpreted this to mean Darkfriends in the Tower, and therefore assumed Elaida could not be a Darkfriend. She and her associates were no longer so sure after realizing what she had actually said, so they stepped carefully. Ferane wanted Seaine raised Amyrlin when Elaida was captured. Seaine and her cohorts have since become some of Egwene's strongest supporters. See also Minly, Talene; Tazanovni, Pevara.

She spent longer as Accepted than any other woman in memory, and is rumored to have barely passed the test for the shawl. She is now sworn to Rand, and later bonded Eben Hopwil as a Warder. She was very possessive of him, and she is now mourning his death, which occured during the cleansing of saidin; she cries for him nearly every night.

  1539. Berowin, aCoS, p. 395 (504)—One of the Kin. She has a habit of leaping before she looks. She served as a Wise One in Ebou Dar. Despite being weak in the one Power, she is good at shielding people, and can shield someone that normally could not be blocked by someone of her strength.
  1540. Zarya Alkaese, aCoS, p. 395 (504)—Real name of Garenia, the name she used as a novice before Vandene and Adeleas left on their retreat to Tifan's Well. She has a strong nose and a wide mouth. She is actually over ninety, but she looks like she is not yet into middle age. She has since been forced back into novice white and is learning from Vandene. She grew up in Saldaea. See also Rosoinde, Garenia.
  1541. Alise Tenjile, aCoS, p. 396 (505)—Former operator of the Kin's Farm. She grew up in Tarabon. She is quite formidable; everyone makes way for her, even some of the Aes Sedai. She seems in her middle years. She has a pleasant face and has touches of gray in her hair, and is shorter than Sumeko. After the Farm was dispersed by the advancing Seanchan attack, she fled to Andor with Elayne. She is still there in the Royal Palace.
  1542. Derys Nermala, aCoS, p. 396 (506)—One of the Kin. She did penance as a servant for trying to get married before the Kin were dispersed by the Seanchan. She is now with the Kinswomen with Elayne. According to Vandene, she likes to hear herself talk. See also Denal.
  1543. Keraille, aCoS, p. 396 (506)—One of the Kin. She was in charge of a woman on an a'dam in the Palace in Caemlyn, along with Solain. She has since been sent off with Dyelin; Dyelin left her behind to watch Ellorien and company.
  1544. Master Denal, aCoS, p. 396 (506)—The man Derys wants to marry. See also Nermala, Derys.

    Chapter 24: The Kin

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  1545. Sarainya Vostovan, aCoS, p. 405 (517)—One of the Kin. She has a husky voice, and is not strong enough in the Power to become an Aes Sedai.
  1546. Sumeko Karistovan, aCoS, p. 405 (517)—One of the Kin. She is a very Talented Healer, and has developed methods of Healing that not even Nynaeve has been able to develop—in fact, the only thing similar would be the methods Damer Flinn has developed among the Asha'man. She is possibly the most skilled female Healer alive outside of Semirhage. She is stout, has confident eyes, straight black hair, a round face, and is very imposing. Unfortunately, Sumeko's abilities in Healing have caused her to occasionally rise above herself—one of her gravest errors was to call Nynaeve “girl.” She now frowns on anyone who uses the “traditional” form of Healing.
  1547. Queen Rhiannon, aCoS, p. 407 (519)—Queen who was “humbled,” presumably centuries ago, by the Aes Sedai. Her humbling is depicted in a tapestry in the Tower.

    Chapter 25: Mindtrap

    Serpent icon
  1548. Moridin, aCoS, p. 418 (534)—Name given to the reincarnation of Ishamael. His new body is tall, black-haired, handsome, and broad-shouldered, but with a prominent chin that ruins the look (in Graendal's eyes, at least). He is the same height as Rand. His name means “Death” in the Old Tongue; no one deserves the name more. His first visit to the Town, a Shadow-controlled city near Thakan'dar, resulted in the death of at least a dozen Samma N'Sei, the red-veiled Aiel-born servants of the Shadow, many of them male channelers that were forcibly Turned to serve the Dark One. He is fond of using the True Power, the power drawn directly from the Dark One; the saa have appeared in his eyes, almost blackening them, yet he still controls his use of the True Power (most thought it impossible to avoid drawing too much of it once the saa appeared). Moridin is careful not to attempt to force the Pattern to behave how he wants it to—he knows that with someone as strongly ta'veren as Rand, that is all but impossible, not to mention foolish. Instead, he attempts to keep everything in chaos (as per the Dark One's command, “Let the Lord of Chaos Rule”), hoping that subtle manipulations will further his goals. He has been declared Nae'blis, the one to be second only to the Great Lord of the Dark after the Last Battle, and given control of the cour'souvra controlling the minds of Cyndane and Moghedien; he has since relinquished Moghedien's to her own control. He has also been granted the exclusive privilege of using the True Power—the other Forsaken are no longer able to touch it even should they want to. Moridin helped Rand, in a way, during his fight with Sammael in Shadar Logoth. Their two streams of balefire crossed, causing both of their heads to ring, and ever since then there has been a link between Moridin and Rand that neither one completely understands. Its influence is clear, however: now that Rand's hand is missing, Moridin's left hand does not work as well as it should. Moridin once granted Graendal some limited access to the True Power, on a short leash, but the likelihood of him doing so again after her utter failure is remote. He is a grand master at the game of Sha'rah, a chess-like game from the Age of Legends; Moridin believes the game to be a distant memory of the battle with the Dark One during this Age from the previous turnings of the Wheel. His connection with Rand allows Rand to enter his dreams, even when they are isolated in a Dreamshard. The same connection seems to have given Rand access to the True Power as well, which allowed Rand to escape Semirhage's Domination Band. Moridin, or rather Ishamael, turned to the Shadow for reasons of logic: following the Light meant the struggle continued forever, with no path to victory. Following the Shadow meant ruling for a short time before everything was destroyed. Moridin believes that the struggle between his soul and Rand's has continued unabated since the beginning of time, and he longs for release from that cycle. See also Haran, Shaidar; Ishamael; Nae'blis; Shai'tan; Tedronai, Elan Morin.

  1551. Karldin Manfor, aCoS, p. 440 (564)—Asha'man, a Soldier at the time, who accompanied Loial to all the stedding and former Ogier groves to seal the Waygates there or warn others to monitor them. Like Flinn and Narishma, he was on the Deserter's List, as was every Asha'man that worked with Rand. He has since been removed from the list, at least officially. He accompanied Bashere to negotiate with Suroth. He is now bound as a Warder to Beldeine. He is among the most skilled in the One Power that Logain had with him when Taim made his move. See also Ledar; Loial; Nyram, Beldeine; Underhill.
  1552. Fager Neald, aCoS, p. 443 (567)—Young, foppish Murandian man with curly mustaches that he keeps waxed to points. He is now one of the Asha'man. He accompanies Perrin. He is fond of stroking his curled, pointy mustaches. Both he and Grady almost died of snakebites suffered during a bubble of evil that hit their camp. They have since recovered.
  1553. Canler, aCoS, p. 444 (569)—One of the Dedicated in the Black Tower. He grew up in Andor, and was a farmer before reporting to the Black Tower. He is sturdy, and has gray in his hair. He reported to Logain in the Black Tower. He is older than Emarin and Nalaam. His face is square and sun-wrinkled. He and Emarin are good friends, though nearly complete opposites: He is crotchety and prone to gossip, while Emarin is tall, refined, and careful. See also Emarin; Leish.

  1559. Solain Morgeillin, aCoS, p. 473 (606)—One of the Kin. She has charge of a woman on an a'dam in the Palace in Caemlyn, along with Keraille.

    Chapter 30: The First Cup

    Serpent icon
  1560. Careane Fransi, aCoS, p. 476 (609)—Late Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She had shoulders and arms as big as most men. She grew up in Arad Doman, and had worn the shawl for over fifty years now. She was among the sisters that are now sworn to obey Rand. Either she or Sareitha had to have been the murderess of Adeleas, and thus Black Ajah; all other suspects had been eliminated. Careane was revealed to have been guilty of Adeleas's murder and those of several of the Kin shortly before Vandene plunged her dagger through Careane's heart. See also Arjuna, Cieryl; Kosaan, Venr.

  1564. Ivara, aCoS, p. 499 (640)—One of the Kin.

    Chapter 32: Sealed to the Flame

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  1565. Covarla Baldene, aCoS, p. 504 (646)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah; one of those who attempted to capture Rand. She was later kept as an apprentice to the Wise Ones, and then commanded the eleven sisters that escaped to Dorlan where the Younglings were. She was displaced from her room with Lusonia Cole when Tarna and Katerine arrived in Tar Valon.
  1566. Josaine, aCoS, p. 509 (652)—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She once found an angreal and did not bring it to the Tower as Aes Sedai are supposed to, instead keeping it in her room. Alviarin found out about it, and told Elaida she needed to make an example of her while Elaida was feeling weak. She died by a weave of earth that destroyed the wall next to her during the Seanchan raid.
  1567. Doraise Mesianos, aCoS, p. 509 (652)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She is very mild and always absorbed in study.
  1568. Kiyoshi, aCoS, p. 509 (652)—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. Alviarin commanded Elaida to uphold her as a model sister, and present her with the gift of a new horse. This came right after Elaida found angreal in the rooms of Josaine and Adelorna; the obvious intent was to imply that Kiyoshi helped turn one of them in. It is unknown whether Kiyoshi is Black Ajah, or if she simply was chosen by Alviarin as a convenient person. She is tall, slender, and a stickler for punctuality and neatness.
  1569. Farellien, aCoS, p. 509 (652)—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. Alviarin commanded Elaida to uphold her as a model sister, and present her with the gift of a new horse. This came right after Elaida found angreal in the rooms of Josaine and Adelorna; the obvious intent was to imply that Farellien helped turn one of them in. It is unknown whether Farellien is Black Ajah, or if she simply was chosen by Alviarin as a convenient person.
  1570. Sereille Bagand, aCoS, p. 512 (655)—Late Aes Sedai of the White Ajah. She was Mistress of Novices when Adeleas and Vandene were novices, and was later raised to the Amyrlin Seat. She was a legend for her harshness. While she was Mistress of Novices, she commented that Vandene was too harsh toward her students. She was considered one of the hardest-tempered Amyrlins in recent history. Her name has been the by-word of iron-handed strictness in the Tower for a hundred years. Egwene worries that some day her name will be used to frighten novices in place of Sereille's. See also Amyrlin Seat; Mistress of Novices.
  1571. Talene Minly, aCoS, p. 514 (659)—Golden-haired Sitter for the Green Ajah in Tar Valon. She used to be Seaine's friend. She has no Warders, which is extremely unusual for a Green. When Pevara shielded her because she suspected her of being Black Ajah, she tried to stab her. She actually is a member of the Black Ajah, and is now sworn to obey Pevara and Seaine unconditionally. One of the three other Black sisters she knew of was Atuan. She was also exposed as a Black by Verin. She fled the Tower weeks ago, most likely released from her Oaths and captivity by either Mesaana or Shaidar Haran. See also Herimon, Seaine; Larisett, Atuan; Tazanovni, Pevara.
  1572. Pevara Tazanovni, aCoS, p. 515 (660)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. She grew up the niece of a Kandori leathermaker. She is short for a Kandori, and quite plump, but tough. She goes against all Red Ajah custom to openly say that Warders would make a Red sister's job easier. She and her friend since novicehood, Seaine, began the hunt for Darkfriends in the Tower. Seaine approached her not only because they were friends, but because Seaine's family was killed by Darkfriends when she was young. She joined the Red Ajah because its task was one which involved being outside the Tower often, and she considered it more likely to be able to find and bring to justice the Darkfriends that killed her family and others like them. She led the organization of sisters in the White Tower to ferret out Black sisters, along with Saerin Sedai, who seized control away from Seaine as soon as she knew what they were about. Pevara mysteriously disappeared from the Tower—in reality, she was one of the sisters leading the embassy of sorts to the Black Tower in which Red sisters offered to bond Asha'man as Warders. Pevara is still at the Black Tower, a virtual prisoner to Darkfriends there. Her seat in the Hall has been filled by another sister, either permanently or until she returns. She has developed a friendship of sorts with Androl Genhald, one of the Dedicated. See also Asnobar, Saerin; Herimon, Seaine; Tazanovni, Georg.
  1573. Tesien Jorhald, aCoS, p. 515 (661)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah who got after Pevara for befriending outside her Ajah years ago.
  1574. Serancha Colvine, aCoS, p. 516 (661)—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah, and Head Clerk of the Gray Ajah (the head of the Grays). She was a very strong advocate of Andaya being raised Sitter. She has a pinched mouth and nose, pale blue pinched eyes, and light brown hair. She always looks as though she has just eaten a lemon. Seaine and Pevara put powdered itchoak in her shift when they were Accepted.

  1579. Tai'daishar, aCoS, p. 531 (681)—Rand's big-chested sleek black stallion. His name means “True Glory” in the Old Tongue. He is a horse that draws attention. Editor's note: in A Crown of Swords, Rand describes Tai'daishar as a gelding. In Knife of Dreams he is called a stallion. Perhaps he had some (amazing!) veterinarian perform surgery on him?
  1580. Seiera, aCoS, p. 531 (681)—Min's new horse. She is mouse-colored.
  1581. Elver Shaene, aCoS, p. 533 (683)—Captain of the longboat that took Rand aboard the Sea Folk ship.

  1590. Jeraal Mordeth, aCoS, p. 554 (711)—Name used by Padan Fain as a disguise to be one of Toram Riatin's advisers. It is the name of the man whose soul controls about half of Fain's mind. Mordeth became a counsellor in Aridhol during the Trolloc Wars. He advised that to defeat the Shadow, Aridhol must be harder than the Shadow, less trusting, more cruel. Slowly it became so, until finally the city was, if not darker than the Shadow, as dark. The city finally turned on itself, consumed itself, tainting every grain of sand, every rock, every sip of water with its hatred. Mordeth's soul remained in the city, now called Shadar Logoth ("Where the Shadow Waits") for millenia—he could not leave the city unless he accompanied a person to the city walls or had them carry something from the city to the outside world. Strangely enough, both of these things happened at the same time, when Mat Cauthon carried the ruby-handled dagger from the city while Padan Fain accompanied Mordeth out of the city at about the same time. Mordeth attempted to consume Fain's soul while the dagger tried to consume Mat's. In Fain's case, the attempt to consume his soul was not completely successful—instead, the two souls merged to create something more evil than either Mordeth or Fain alone. Fain now feels incomplete without the tainted dagger that was removed from the city. Mordeth, Fain, or whatever you wish to call him has since deserted Toram. See also Fain, Padan; Ordeith.

  1593. Samitsu Tamagowa, aCoS, p. 561 (720)—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. She is one of the best Healers alive, at least that do it in the traditional way. She was the Aes Sedai left in charge of Cairhien when Cadsuane left prior to the cleansing of saidin, and is now with the entourage of sisters that obey Cadsuane and protect Rand. She tried to Heal Rand's side wound and mostly failed, but when Damer Flinn was able to partially Heal him using a more sophisticated weave, she begged on her knees for him to teach her. She is pretty, slender, has hazel eyes, and dark hair that she keeps bells in. She grew up in Arafel. She and Sashalle are the closest things Cairhien has to rulers in Rand's absence. See also Anderly, Sashalle; Flinn, Damer; Roshan.

The Hall mishandled events itself, too, leading to one of only six mutinies in Tower history, which pulled down both Shein and the Hall. She allegedly died of natural causes, but in fact she was smothered in her bed in exile fifty-one years later after a plot was discovered to put her back on the Amyrlin Seat.

  1738. Furyk Karede, tPoD, p. 442 (500)—Seanchan Banner-General of the Deathwatch Guards, and commander of about 2300 Seanchan troops. He is 42 years old, born to weavers, and the property of Jalid Magonine, a craftsman in Ancarid. Furyk started training for the Deathwatch Guards when he was fifteen. He was cited twice for heroism, and mentioned in dispatches three times. After seven years, after her birth, he was named to Tuon's personal bodyguard, though that was not her name at the time (and using that name now would be an insult to her). He was one of only three survivors of an attempt on Tuon's life, and was subsequently chosen for officer training. Later, he was injured again saving Tuon from assassins; she gave him a doll, her most prized possession at the time. Several years later, Karede was named to the Empress's personal bodyguard, and sent with High Lord Turak and the Hailene. He kept Tuon's doll for over ten years until it was destroyed in the Great Fire of Sohima. He has since requested to be on Tuon's bodyguard again no fewer than three times. Tuon, now Fortuona, has granted his wish now that she has left Mat's presence and declared herself Empress. He is as dedicated to her as they come. Mat is convinced that he and Lan could hold a staring contest that went on for years. See also Emela; Magonine, Jalid; Paendrag, Tuon Athaem Kore.
  1739. Jadranka, tPoD, p. 443 (501)—One of the officers who scout with Karede. He is of about equal rank with Karede, but usually leaves him alone, as he does any member of the Deathwatch Guards. He has served the Empress for as long as Karede has. He is short, thin, and has a prominent nose.
  1740. Nadoc, tPoD, p. 444 (503)—Big man with a deceptively mild face.
  1741. Anghar, tPoD, p. 446 (505)—Steady-eyed Seanchan scout with a fast horse.
  1742. Arlen Nalaam, tPoD, p. 448 (507)—Former Soldier in the Black Tower, now raised to the Dedicated. He captured a sul'dam during Rand's attack on the Seanchan; Rand placed her in Nynaeve's custody. He grew up in Arad Doman. He has a thin mustache. He is just shy of thirty years old, though he often acts younger. He once put tree sap in Androl's boots. He occasionally cackles to himself in gibberish. He is the strongest in the Power among those Androl still trusts.

Yulan led the raid on the White Tower himself, for which he was promoted.

    Chapter 25: An Unwelcome Return

    Women in a Mirror icon
  1753. Velina Behar, tPoD, p. 489 (555)—Sitter for the White Ajah in Tar Valon. She is cool and precise, has an almost girlishly high-pitched voice, a beak of a nose, and sharp, tilted eyes. She is a model of a White sister. Verin's work revealed that she is of the Black Ajah. She escaped Egwene's justice. Editor's note: Velina flinched when Alviarin glared at her in The Path of Daggers.
  1754. Shevan, tPoD, p. 489 (555)—Sitter for the Brown Ajah in Tar Valon. She is bonily thin and taller than most men. She has an angular face, long chin, spidery fingers, knobby arms, and curly hair. She was a very recent addition to the Hall, though unlike many of the other sisters raised in recent weeks, she was actually a logical choice to succeed—Saerin had mentioned that Shevan would likely have been her replacement when she decided to step down. She died in the attacks by the Black Ajah in Tel'aran'rhiod.
  1755. Sedore Dajenna, tPoD, p. 490 (556)—Former Sitter for the Yellow Ajah in Tar Valon. She has a round face. Verin exposed her as a member of the Black Ajah. Egwene killed her during the attack in the World of Dreams by filling the room she was in with fire.
  1756. Rubinde, tPoD, p. 490 (557)—Sitter for the Green Ajah in Tar Valon. She is sturdy, and has eyes the color of sapphires. She represented the Green Ajah at Nynaeve's test for the shawl.
  1757. Ferane Neheran, tPoD, p. 498 (566)—Aes Sedai of the White Ajah in Tar Valon. She stepped down from the Hall of the Tower about ten years ago, but was recently re-appointed to the Hall by the White Ajah; no sister has ever rejoined the Hall that quickly. She is the head of the White Ajah, its First Reasoner. She grew up in Arad Doman, and has the coppery skin (and temper) typical of the Domani. She is a touch on the vain side. She is short and stout with an apple-shaped face, has a strong arm, and dark, lustrous hair.
  1758. Suana Dragand, tPoD, p. 498 (566)—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah in Tar Valon, recently raised to a Sitter for the Yellow for the second time. She was hand-picked in a similar fashion to Juilaine, though she did serve in the Hall for forty years before resigning the first time. She is the First Weaver, the head of the Yellow Ajah. She is beefy, and has too much chin; she is all bones and skin. She is described as “unyielding.” Her quarters more closely resemble a garden than they do proper rooms. She has her own herb garden built into the inset balcony. Egwene describes her as “pleasant”; she even suggested that Egwene join the Yellow Ajah despite Egwene's personal feelings that she was not strong in Healing.

    Chapter 26: The Extra Bit

    Dragon's Fang icon
  1759. Juilaine Madome, tPoD, p. 500 (568)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah, recently raised to a Sitter for the Brown in Tar Valon. She was hand-picked for her spot in the Hall, and not in the usual way the Browns pick. She is tall, attractive, and has short black hair.
  1760. Saerin Asnobar, tPoD, p. 500 (568)—Sitter for the Brown Ajah from Altara. She carries a curved knife, in the fashion of her native Altara. She has touches of white at her dark temples which emphasize a thin, age-faded white scar. Only a Warder could match her for scowling. She has held her chair in the Hall for forty years, and has worn the shawl for over 150 years. Everyone knows to be wary of her temper. She was born the daughter of an innkeeper, and was first trained by the Daughters of Silence (an organization similar to, but shorter-lived and smaller than, the Kin)—she was the only one of them to ever obtain the shawl. She is good at taking charge of things, and immediately took charge of the organization to fetter out Darkfriends in the Tower with Pevara, dismissing Seaine from her position. She has olive skin. She is one of the few Browns who are intimidating. Saerin was Egwene's second choice for Keeper once she re-entered the Tower as Amyrlin, though she suspected choosing her would weaken herself; people would see Saerin as the true power behind the Seat. Jesse Bilal wanted Saerin herself as Amyrlin. Siuan has tried, unsuccessfully, to pry the cause of the scar on her face out of Saerin. Siuan used to think Saerin obstinate and frustrating when she was Amyrlin, but now that she no longer must impose her will upon her, she is actually beginning to like Saerin. Saerin was present at Nynaeve's test for the shawl. She strongly objected to how she was treated. She has retained her position as a Sitter now the Tower has reunited. See also Herimon, Seaine; Tazanovni, Pevara.
  1761. Zerah Dacan, tPoD, p. 500 (569)—Slim, black-haired Aes Sedai of the White Ajah. She has a prideful air, and has been Aes Sedai for less than fifty years. She originally fled to Salidar, but was sent back to Tar Valon to keep suspicion from growing and to spread the stories about Logain being set up by the Red Ajah. She has since been discovered by Pevara and company, and is bound by the Oath Rod to obey them.
  1762. Bernaile Gelbarn, tPoD, p. 507 (577)—Aes Sedai from Tarabon. She was sent back to the Tower by the Aes Sedai in Salidar. She keeps her hair done in many narrow, beaded braids, the style in Tarabon. See also Annharid; Celestin; Meidani.
  1763. Yukiri, tPoD, p. 509 (578)—Sitter for the Gray Ajah. She was the daughter of an innkeeper, and is always the last Gray to join the Gray consensus in the Hall. She was an ally of Saerin and Pevara in hunting down Darkfriends in the Tower. She is one of the shortest people Egwene has ever met. She always seems to be in control. She was one of Egwene's most ardent supporters. She was present at Nynaeve's test for the shawl. See also Asnobar, Saerin; Herimon, Seaine; Tazanovni, Pevara.
  1764. Doesine Alwain, tPoD, p. 509 (578)—Sitter for the Yellow Ajah. Boyishly slim, and tall for a Cairhienin. Her father was a cutler. She ran away three times as a novice, although she only got as far as the gates once. She has a bit of a foul tongue. She managed to get Atuan questioned in the same manner Talene was. She and Saerin walked in on Seaine and Pevara when they were using the Oath Rod to question sisters; she promptly booted Seaine out of the leadership and seized the reins herself. She has blue eyes and wears a sapphire on her forehead in the Cairhienin style. She and Seaine were charged with determining whether it was possible to fool or circumvent the Oath Rod; they discovered an alteration to the Mask of Mirrors that would allow the user to distort the words they were saying, so that they could in fact say anything at all (with approximately the same length sentences, at least) and have everyone else hear something else. She retains her position as a Sitter now that Tower has reunited. See also Herimon, Seaine; Tazanovni, Pevara.
  1765. Mistress Jara Doweel, tPoD, p. 513 (584)—Toveine's mistress while serving twenty years of penance in the Black Hills.
  1766. Jenare, tPoD, p. 514 (584)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. She was among those on the failed raiding party sent to capture the Asha'man, and was captured herself. She is pale and sturdy. The man she is bonded to is named Welyn Kajima. Both Jenare and Welyn have since been Turned to the Shadow by the M'Hael and his cronies. See also Kajima.
  1767. Lemai, tPoD, p. 514 (584)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah, now captive with the Asha'man. She told the captive Aes Sedai that they should be cordial with the Asha'man.
  1768. Sparrow, tPoD, p. 514 (585)—Toveine's horse.
  1769. Evin Hardlin, tPoD, p. 515 (586)—One of the male channelers who sides with Logain; he helped put down the Aes Sedai “invasion.” He has since been raised Asha'man. He is one of the few full Asha'man that Androl trusts.
  1770. Norley, tPoD, p. 515 (586)—One of the male channelers who sides with Logain; he helped put down the Aes Sedai “invasion.” He has since been raised Asha'man. He is one of the few full Asha'man that Androl trusts.
  1771. Kajima, tPoD, p. 515 (586)—Asha'man in his middle years. Toveine thought he smiled too much as a Dedicated. He is the “husband” of Jenare. Before coming to the Black Tower, he was a clerk in Arafel—he looks like a clerk. He wears his hair in braids and bells just like Jahar Narishma. He was loyal to Logain before both he and Jenare were Turned to the Shadow. See also Ablar, Logain; Jenare; Kurin, Mezar; Sandomere, Donalo.
  1772. Vinchova, tPoD, p. 516 (587)—“Pretty lad” of a Dedicated who learns from Logain. He is among those suspicious of those who work closely with Mazrim Taim.

    Chapter 27: The Bargain

    Cairhien icon
  1773. Daved Hanlon, tPoD, p. 523 (595)—Real name of Doilin Mellar, the man who “saved” Elayne from the three assassins. In gratitude, she named him Captain of the Queen's Bodyguard. He is a Darkfriend, and works for Shiaine. He is not bulky, and little taller than the average run of men. He feigned a relationship with Falion Bhoda so that the two could exchange information discreetly. He was arrested by Elayne when she discovered evidence that he was visiting Black sisters. He later escaped, with Darkfriend assistance, from the dungeons under the Palace. He promises that he will hunt down Elayne and rape and kill her himself. Like Raen and Ila, Hanlon helps tend to the injured, wounded, and dead at the Battle of Merrilor. Unlike them, Hanlon and his men are looting the bodies. He still has the copy of Mat's foxhead medallion that he stole from Elayne. See also Hanlon, Daved; Mellar, Doilin.
  1774. Jeraal Mordeth, tPoD, p. 523 (595)—Name used by Padan Fain as a disguise to be one of Toram Riatin's advisers. It is the name of the man whose soul controls about half of Fain's mind. Mordeth became a counselor in Aridhol during the Trolloc Wars. He advised that to defeat the Shadow, Aridhol must be harder than the Shadow, less trusting, more cruel. Slowly it became so, until finally the city was, if not darker than the Shadow, as dark. The city finally turned on itself, consumed itself, tainting every grain of sand, every rock, every sip of water with its hatred. Mordeth's soul remained in the city, now called Shadar Logoth (“Where the Shadow Waits”) for millenia—he could not leave the city unless he accompanied a person to the city walls or had them carry something from the city to the outside world. Strangely enough, both of these things happened at the same time, when Mat Cauthon carried the ruby-handled dagger from the city while Padan Fain accompanied Mordeth out of the city at about the same time. Mordeth attempted to consume Fain's soul while the dagger tried to consume Mat's. In Fain's case, the attempt to consume his soul was not completely successful—instead, the two souls merged to create something more evil than either Mordeth or Fain alone. Fain now feels incomplete without the tainted dagger that was removed from the city. Mordeth, Fain, or whatever you wish to call him has since deserted Toram. See also Fain, Padan; Ordeith.
  1775. Nesair, tPoD, p. 531 (604)—Fiery-haired Maiden of the Spear. She assisted in Rand's beating. She is beautiful despite sun-dark cheeks. She was originally of the Shaido, but stayed with her warrior society when the Shaido went amok.

  1779. Rolan, tPoD, p. 585 (666)—Aiel warrior with blue eyes. He captured Faile, cut her clothes off, and carried her to their next camp. He later saved her from a drunken Nadric, who intended to have his way with her. He was one of the Mera'din, the Brotherless, who left his clan because he refused to follow Rand al'Thor as Car'a'carn. He is no more than a hand shorter than Nandric, and almost as wide, making him a very large man. He was killed by Perrin during the attack on the Shaido that ended with the rescue of Faile and the other gai'shain and the capture of Sevanna and the other Shaido Wise Ones. Faile still wears the stone he gave her. Not daily, but often enough to be remarkable.

  1790. Gabrelle, WH, p. 63 (60)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah, now bonded to Logain Ablar via the Warder-like Wife Bond of the Asha'man. She likes his attentions, and is much more of a wife to Logain than Toveine, the other woman bonded to him. She has sooty green eyes. See also Ablar, Logain; Gazal, Toveine.
  1791. Donalo Sandomere, WH, p. 64 (60)—Tairen Asha'man with a creased, square farmer's face and a sharply trimmed, gray, oiled beard. He used to work closely with Logain.

He is tall, has wavy golden hair, bright blue eyes, wide shoulders, and a “winning” smile that never seems to reach his eyes. He is dimssive of Androl and the other Dedicated who are not on a path to being Taim's cronies. He was on Taim's side from the beginning; there was no need to Turn him, as he is a Darkfriend voluntarily.
  1795. Ayako Norsoni, WH, p. 71 (69)—Aes Sedai of the White Ajah, the only White to accompany Toveine's expedition to the Black Tower.

  1824. Marille, WH, p. 205 (229)—Seanchan damane captured by the Asha'man, now in Caemlyn. She, like many other damane, is convinced that she needs to be collared, to protect others. She is having great difficulty adjusting to life as a free woman, still referring to her self in the third person and such. She tells Gawyn about the bloodknives, and does not believe his assertion that he killed one of them.
  1825. Jillari, WH, p. 205 (229)—Seanchan damane captured by the Asha'man, now in Caemlyn. She, like many other damane, is convinced that she needs to be collared, to protect others. She appears to be in her middle years; even she does not know her true age. She is slight of build and has long fiery red hair and green eyes.
  1826. Alivia, WH, p. 205 (229)—Seanchan damane captured by Asha'man. She was afraid of freedom because she feared being captured again. She has been collared since she was thirteen or fourteen, and has been damane for over four hundred years. She is considerably stronger in the One Power than Nynaeve, and a little bit taller. She has fine lines at the corners of her sharp blue eyes and white streaks in her blonde hair. Min dislikes her, though not because of jealousy—Min had a viewing of her indicating that she will help Rand to die. She has a very intense personality.
  1827. Kara Defane, WH, p. 206 (231)—Former influential Wise Woman, or Healer, from a fishing village on Toman Head before she was collared by the Seanchan. Plump and merry-eyed, she is nearly 50, but she appears to be in her twenties.
  1828. Lemore, WH, p. 206 (231)—Nineteen year-old damane. She was a noble in Tarabon and had the misfortune of having the spark of saidar manifest itself on the day Tanchico fell to the Seanchan. She also answers to her damane name, Larie. She is not trusted near the sul'dam. See also Larie.

    Serpent icon
  1831. Essande Dawlish, WH, p. 209 (233)—Slender, dignified, white-haired pensioner who is now one of Elayne's maids. She is slim, and has aching joints. Despite her retirement and apparent arthritis, she refuses help from other servants and insists on serving Elayne herself.

    Twisted Stone Dreaming Ring icon
  1833. Doilin Mellar, WH, p. 226 (254)—Caemlyn Palace Guard who at one point slew Elayne's assassins. He cut the first's head off, threw his sword at the second and speared him with it, and took the poisoned dagger from the third and killed him with it. He is wiry, has a sharp face, and is coldhearted, though he smiles a lot. He is fond of teasing women. He claimed to have been a merchant's guard, then a mercenary, then a Hunter for the Horn. He later became a lieutenant in the Queen's Guards, and in gratitude, Elayne made him the captain of her bodyguard. He has dark eyes a narrow face that is not pretty or handsome. He moves with a swordsman's grace, and is very strong. Mellar claimed to be from Andor, near Baerlon, and he claimed to have fought on Morgase's side during the Succession. Half the palace, and a significant number of troops in the Andoran army, accepted the rumor that he is the father of Elayne's twins, which she allowed to continue to protect their true father's identity. Unbeknownst to Elayne or practically anyone else until it was too late, he also answers to the name Daved Hanlon, a Darkfriend. To Mellar, a name is akin to a coat—to be changed regularly and to suit the conditions. Elayne grew more than suspicious of his loyalties, and eventually had Hark follow him to see who he was meeting. It was the Black sisters; Elayne arrested him immediately. In the subsequent fight with Elayne, he killed Eldrith and Temaile rather than let them slow him down. He escaped with one of Elayne's copies of Mat's foxhead medallion. See also Hanlon, Daved.
  1834. Mistress Priss, WH, p. 229 (257)—Apparently a very prissy person. Used of people like Elayne.

He is convinced that she is a murderer, suspects that she's Black Ajah, and is determined to kill her no matter the cost to himself. See also Jhondar, Eldrith.
  1837. Powl, WH, p. 246 (277)—One of Asne Zeramene's four Warders. He is the only one among them who is a Darkfriend, though the others would believe anything she told them and thus might be considered unwitting Darkfriends.
  1838. Murellin, WH, p. 248 (280)—Strongarm for Lady Shiaine. He is the size of an ox, and has the wits of one to match. He is fond of his pipe.

  1847. Sashalle Anderly, WH, p. 310 (352)—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. She was stilled by Rand during the battle at Dumai's Wells. She has since been Healed by Damer Flinn, and is now an apprentice of the Wise Ones and oathsworn to Rand. She even wears Aiel jewelry, and has since taken charge of the previously stilled sisters in Cairhien. She has curly hair and a face that does not seem like that of an Aes Sedai. She and Samitsu are the closest things Cairhien had to rulers in Rand's absence, at least until Elayne assumed the Throne. She was captured with Compulsion by Hessalam during the battle at Thakan'dar; Hessalam wore her out by drawing too much of the Power through her for too long. See also Tamagowa, Samitsu.

    Chapter 14: What a Veil Hides

    Seanchan icon
  1849. Selucia, WH, p. 320 (363)—Tuon's Truthspeaker, and her Voice now that she has removed the veil and been raised Empress, becoming Fortuona. She kept the right side of her head shaved clean, the other side braided, while Tuon was merely the heir; now that she is Empress, Selucia shaves the left side and is growing out the right. Until her hair grows out, she has taken to wearing a cloth on the right side. She is the one who shaves Fortuona's head every morning. She has golden hair, piercing blue eyes, skin the color of buttery cream, and an “impressive” bosom, but she is not soft: she could give sandpaper pointers on being rough. See also Paendrag, Fortuona Athaem Devi; Paendrag, Tuon Athaem Kore.
  1850. Anath Dorje, WH, p. 323 (367)—Selucia's former Soe'feia, or Truthspeaker. She now serves Tuon, allegedly. She is very tall and slender with dark skin and black eyes. She seems to get a charge out of inflicting pain. Anath is, of course, Semirhage, who had somehow managed to gain a significant amount of trust with the Seanchan in a very short period of time (as have the other Forsaken in their countries of choice). She conned several sul'dam/damane pairs into helping her attempt to capture Rand; in the process, she herself was captured and exposed. See also Semirhage.
  1851. Neferi, WH, p. 323 (367)—Former Soe'feia to Tuon. She died by falling down stairs and breaking her neck (which you have to admit seems a little fishy). See also Dorje, Anath.
  1852. Lidya, WH, p. 324 (367)—Damane in service of Tuon. She appears to have the Talent of Foretelling—she was able to read Tuon's fortune, in a way, before they landed at Ebou Dar. She was caned because Tuon did not like what she told her. Tuon later apologized, realizing that Lidya had only told the truth. What Lidya told her was: “Beware the fox that makes the ravens fly, for he will marry you and carry you away. Beware the man who remembers Hawkwing's face, for he will marry you and set you free. Beware the man of the red hand, for him you will marry and none other.”
  1853. Ianelle, WH, p. 324 (367)—Sul'dam who controls Lidya.
  1854. Dali, WH, p. 324 (368)—Damane that served Tuon. She is Dani's sister. Tuon thought she, like the other five of her personal servant damane, barely needed a sul'dam. Dali was given by Fortuona to the cause of the Fists of Heaven. See also Dani.

  1863. Algwyn, WH, p. 328 (372)—Last Emperor of Seanchan. All subsequent holders of the Crystal Throne were female. See also Empress (of Seanchan), The.

Most of his teeth are missing. Mat says he looks like a scarecrow who dusted off and went to town. He is as spry as most men half his age. He is actually Jain Charin, also known as Jain Farstrider.

She no longer uses the name Egeanin; after being demoted out of the Blood by Tuon, she now uses the name Leilwin Shipless. She was the subject of a search by Suroth for stealing two damane, but it is presumed that this search ended with Suroth's removal from power.

She was weary-eyed and resigned the first day Faile met her, when she gave Faile her golden belt signifying service to Sevanna. Her time as gai'shain toughened her a lot. She was the one who took Faile to see that Arrela and Lacile had been captured, then led her to Sevanna for her own punishment. Before leaving her with Sevanna, however, she swore fealty to Faile, using Faile's new last name. She knew Faile planned to escape, and wanted to help—provided she could escape as well. She was once a noble in Amadicia, though she stubbornly refuses to admit that fact since her capture. Her face is plump, but still haggard from her captivity.

He and his House are among Elayne's most adamant supporters.
  1991. Lady Catalyn Haevin, CoT, p. 327 (389)—High Seat of House Haevin. She is a dark-eyed young woman, though barely more than a girl. She pledged the support of her House to Elayne. She is very presumptuous and snooty, especially for someone who had not even heard of Gareth Bryne (Elayne claims that miners in Baerlon had heard Lord Bryne's name).

  1992. Lord Branlet Gilyard, CoT, p. 327 (389)—High Seat of House Gilyard. He is a boy with unruly black curly hair and blue eyes that are too big for his face.

    Chapter 14: What Wise Ones Know

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  1999. Master Harnder, CoT, p. 338 (403)—Second Librarian in the Royal Palace of Caemlyn. He is chubby and bald, and blinks incessantly. Reene Harfor thinks he is a spy—he frequents the Hoop and Arrow, allegedly to support his cravings for the ale Mistress Fendry, the innkeeper, makes, but every time he visits she sends one of her pigeons north. If he is indeed a spy, he is the first spy reported for an Ajah besides the Red; Elayne dismisses Red spies as holdovers from when Elaida was the Queen's advisor, but spies from other Ajahs are not so easily explained.
  2000. Millis Fendry, CoT, p. 338 (403)—Innkeeper at the Hoop and Arrow, an inn in Caemlyn. Master Harnder, the Second Librarian, claims to have a weakness for her ale. She keeps pigeons, however, and sends one of them north every time he visits. She also received three hooded guests, who were reported to be Brown Aes Sedai, behind closed doors for over an hour—this leads Mistress Harfor to believe that Harnder and Fendry are both spies for the Brown Ajah.
  2001. Sabeine Ocalin, CoT, p. 347 (415)—One of the Kin. She and Julanya were sent to visit some of the Andoran villages a few miles south of the border with Cairhien, and the villages reported that they think the armies from the Borderlands were camped for the winter. They were both peddlers for twenty years, making them ideal for the task—they are used to long journeys with little rest.
  2002. Julanya Fote, CoT, p. 347 (415)—One of the Kin. She and Sabeine were sent to visit some of the Andoran villages a few miles south of the border with Cairhien, and the villages reported that they think the armies from the Borderlands were camped for the winter. They were both peddlers for twenty years, making them ideal for the task—they are used to long journeys with little rest. She was later sent with Dyelin; Dyelin left her behind to watch over Ellorien and company. She is plump and pretty; Mat thinks she would fit nicely on his knee. She has a slight tinge of white in her hair, though it does not detract from her appearance.
  2003. Guardswoman Yurith Azeri, CoT, p. 358 (428)—Guardswoman in the Royal Palace in Caemlyn. She and observed Merilille leaving the city with one of the Sea Folk apprentices, presumably Talaan.

  2008. Lady Sylvase Caeren, CoT, p. 372 (445)—Lord Nasin's granddaughter and heir. She is sturdy, of medium build, placid, unemotional, and quite pretty except for the expressionless look. She appears to have a cow's wits to accompany her cow-like expression. Actually, she rarely speaks. Her blue eyes appear vapid. Despite her appearances to the contrary, she is quite cunning; she buries it deeply.
  2009. Arlene, CoT, p. 372 (446)—Arymilla's maid. She is slim, has a pretty face, and a tremulous smile. She had the misfortune of being sent off with Nasin to “distract” him from Elenia.

  2014. Shemari, CoT, p. 421 (507)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. Neither she nor Phaedrine is strong enough to weave a gateway by herself, but linked they can just barely manage one big enough to walk through. She instructed Egwene when Egwene was a novice in the White Tower. She is vigorous, and square-faced—she looks more like a Green than a Tower librarian—and she is always far beyond proper. Her deep curtsies to Egwene usually suggest mockery, and she has been known to curtsy from over a hundred paces away.
  2015. Letice Murow, CoT, p. 423 (510)—Pale-eyed novice close to her middle years. She has a sister who is also a novice. She has unblemished skin that has never spent a day working in a field. She is from Murandy.

He would be long dead, with or without the Darkfriend mob, as would his great-grandchildren, but his death and the deaths of the rest of her family still haunt Pevara to this day.

    Chapter 23: Ornaments

    Dragon icon
  2024. Lord Algarin Pendaloan, CoT, p. 528 (637)—Lesser Lord of the Land in Tear. He had a wrinkly face and a white beard. He provided accomodations for Rand, Min, Verin, Cadsuane, Lan, Nynaeve, and the rest of their group on his manor so they could recuperate from the events at Shadar Logoth. His younger brother Emarin could channel, and Algarin wanted to be tested for the ability as well; he is now one of the Dedicated in the Black Tower, using his younger brother's name to conceal his identity.

  2027. Fearil, CoT, p. 542 (655)—Elza's Warder. It is said they are married, and Greens who marry seldom take more than one Warder. She left him in Cairhien, but he has followed her to Tear. He is tall, lean, and pretty with pale hair, and has a harsh voice. She has spent the past twenty years convincing everyone else that they were married so no one would be suspicious of them being alone together. He likes killing. Editor's note: It is not revealed explicitly whether Fearil knows that Elza is Black Ajah, but since we are told he likes killing, it only makes sense that he does, and is a Darkfriend himself.

He and Suroth were the two primary leaders of the Return. His ancestors supported Luthair's quest to be the first Seanchan Emperor. Suroth loathed him, primarily because she saw him as the only real threat to her own plan to make herself Empress. He is a member of the High Blood. He has wide shoulders. Now that Fortuona has declared herself Empress, Galgan serves as her general of the army. He seems to distrust Mat, either because he views him as a threat to the Empire or because he is uncertain of Mat's loyalty. He has been sending assassins after Fortuona, but she insists they are intended to fail, as they are not trained Seanchan assassins.
  2052. Rosala, KoD, p. 38—Servant of Suroth. Suroth sends Liandrin to her to be beaten; beating her herself would shame Suroth.

His 100,000 troops were routed by Ituralde's forces, who were outnumbered two to one and possessed no damane. He remained proud and defiant, even in death.
  2055. Banner-General Tylee Khirgan, KoD, p. 45—Lieutenant-General in the Seanchan army and controller of several raken. She wears four plumes on her helmet, indicating her rank and success to date.

She is from Maram Kashor, a dry island off the southeast tip of Seanchan. Her ancestors traveled with Luthair. She made a pact with Perrin Aybara to fight the Shaido in exchange for any Wise Ones they could capture and make into damane. For her service to the Empire, she was made Lieutenant-General and Raised to the Low Blood. She is “fond” of Perrin, and respects him greatly. She is also one of the only Seanchan generals that Mat respects.
