    Chapter 1: The Hook

    Helmet icon
  1. al'Lan Mandragoran, NS, p. 11—Uncrowned king of Malkier, a nation now swallowed by the Great Blight, and the son of al'Akir and el'Leanna, the last king and queen of Malkier. He is very tall, with long hair that he wears back with the hadori, a braided leather strap traditionally worn by Malkieri men. At his birth, shortly before the Trollocs overran Malkier and the Blight consumed his homeland, Lan was given four gifts (while still in his cradle): a gold signet ring, a locket, a sword, and an oath. Lan and his surviving Malkieri companions are the last of their people. He prefers to avoid Aes Sedai when possible. Lan has experience fighting the Aiel on the Shienaran Marches, long before the Aiel War even began. He is quite practiced in the ko'di, the Oneness, a concentration aid he uses to clear his mind for battle and other crucial situations. 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 is the only one still alive. Bluff and broad, he is taller than most men, almost as tall as Lan. His hair is solid gray, which he wears cut to the shoulder according to Malkieri tradition, held back by the hadori, a thin braided leather cord. He has blue eyes.
  6. Shai'tan, NS, p. 15—Source of all evil, complete antithesis of the Creator in every way. He was imprisoned by the Creator at the moment of Creation in a prison just outside the Pattern. This prison was bored into during the Age of Legends; the Dark One's touch on the world produced new waves of hate, crime, and violence that had never been seen before. An attempt to free the Dark One completely resulted in the War of the Shadow, a war which ended only with the sealing of the Bore by Lews Therin Telamon and the Hundred Companions. During the moment of sealing, the Dark One's counterstroke tainted saidin itself, beginning the Time of Madness. The seals on the prison were made of cuendillar, an indestructible substance, but nonetheless are beginning to weaken. The Dark One may touch the world again soon. Speaking his true name draws his attention and causes bad luck, so he is known by a plethora of euphemisms, most commonly as simply, “The Dark One.” Some, including Bukama, believe that merely thinking his true name is enough. See also Ba'alzamon; Creator, The; Dragon, The; Haran, Shaidar; Ishamael; Moridin; Nae'blis.
  7. The Creator, NS, p. 15—Maker of the world, the True Source, everything in existance. At the moment of Creation, the Creator sealed the Dark One in a prison at Shayol Ghul to keep him from influencing the world. See also Dragon, The; Dragon Reborn; Shai'tan.
  8. Artur Hawkwing, NS, p. 15—Legendary emperor who lived about a thousand years ago. He conquered most of the known world, and the present-day nations were carved from his empire. See Paendrag Tanreall, Artur.
  9. Rakim, NS, p. 17—Grizzled old Saldaean soldier. He has a hoarse voice and a ragged scar from an Aiel arrow to his throat. He likes to show off the scar when he is drinking. He considers himself lucky to be alive, and he is, but because of that he takes somewhat unnecessary chances and boasts about his luck.
  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—Name the Aiel use for Lan. It means, roughly, “One Man Alone” or “Man Who is an Entire People” in the Old Tongue. See also Mandragoran, Lan.

    Chapter 2: A Wish Fulfilled

    Wheel of Time icon
  15. Amyrlin Seat, NS, p. 26—Leader of the Aes Sedai, their equivalent of a king or queen. Her authority is immense—rulers of all nations will obey a summons to the Amyrlin, even if they will spend the entire journey devising a plan to kill her while there. The Amyrlin, once raised, is considered to be “of all Ajahs and none”—she wears a stole striped with the seven colors of the Ajahs. The current Amyrlin is Tamra Ospenya, raised from the Blue 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—One of the Accepted. She grew up in the Sun Palace in Cairhien, a niece of Laman, King of Cairhien, and half-sister of Taringail Damodred, the husband of the Queen of Andor. Upon entering the White Tower, she quickly formed a friendship with Siuan Sanche, daughter of a Tairen fisherman. The two have been progressing at nearly identical paces ever since. Moiraine is very short—short even for a Cairhienin woman—and has very pale skin. She has been known to flash her temper on occasion. Both of her parents are dead; her mother died when she was very young. Like her friend Siuan, she was born with the spark of saidar in her. She will some day become one of the strongest Aes Sedai in the Tower. Moiraine has great respect and admiration for Tamra Ospenya. See also al'Meara, Nynaeve; al'Thor, Rand; al'Vere, Egwene; Alys; Aybara, Perrin; Cauthon, Matrim; Cormanes; Damodred, Aldecain; Damodred, Anvaere; Damodred, Carewin; Damodred, Innloine; Damodred, Laman; Damodred, Moressin; Damodred, Taringail; Lanfear; Mandragoran, Lan; Merrilin, Thomdril; Moroso, Gitara; Sanche, Siuan.
  17. Siuan Sanche, NS, p. 26—One of the Accepted. She grew up on a fishing boat in Tear, and was sent on the first boat bound for Tar Valon the day it was discovered she had the spark of saidar inborn, in accordance with Tairen law. Her parents are now dead, her mother dying when she was very young. Upon arriving at the Tower, she very quickly became friends with Moiraine Damodred, and despite the large gap between their incomes and lifestyles as children, they found they had a remarkable amount in common. The two moved at nearly the same rate through their work with the Power, but Siuan seems to learn things like history, language, and politics at a much faster rate. In fact, she arrived at the Tower barely able to read, and now she teaches introductory classes in the Old Tongue. She has very fair skin, clear blue eyes, and is only a hand taller than Moiraine. She has a talent for puzzles. Like Moiraine, she will some day become one of the strongest Aes Sedai in the Tower. 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—Watcher of the Seals, the Flame of Tar Valon, the Amyrlin Seat. She was raised from the Blue Ajah. She is always fair and just, which are not necessarily the same thing. It is said that her stare can make stones move. Her Keeper of the Chronicles is Gitara Moroso, also raised from the Blue Ajah. 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 under Tamra Ospenya. She is always just, usually fair, but rarely kind. She is tall and almost voluptuous. Raised from the Blue Ajah, she still considers herself a Blue. Her hair is pure white, and she wears ivory combs in it. Rumor has it that she is over 300 years old. When she has the Foretelling, it is always strong, and she is rumored to have them frequently. 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—Secretary of sorts for the Amyrlin Seat. By tradition, the Keeper is chosen from the same Ajah as the Amyrlin was raised from. However, the Keeper represents the Amyrlin, not the Ajah she is part of. The current Keeper is Gitara Moroso, raised from the Blue Ajah. 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—One of the Accepted. She and Brendas were assigned to the Amyrlin Seat's chamber before Moiraine and Siuan took over.
  23. Brendas, NS, p. 29—One of the Accepted. She and Temaile were assigned to the Amyrlin Seat's chamber before Moiraine and Siuan took over. She is usually quite sensible.
  24. Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan, NS, p. 32—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. She was the only woman besides Siuan and Moiraine to finish novice training in less than three years. She finished Accepted training in less three years as well, also a record. Moiraine describes her as a “detestable woman.” She currently serves as advisor to the Queen of Andor, a post she has held for three years. See also Trakand, Morgase.
  25. Elin Warrel, NS, p. 33—Novice on guard duty outside the Amyrlin's study. She is very slender. Moiraine caught her reading Hearts of Flame, a romance novel of sorts. The book is considered inappropriate for novices. She is three years older than Moiraine.
  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—Aes Sedai in charge of novice training in the White Tower. She serves as both a disciplinarian and a shoulder to cry on for girls who need either. The current Mistress of Novices is Merean Redhill of the Blue Ajah. 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 during the War of the Shadow. His Rebirth will signal Tarmon Gaidon, the Last Battle against the Shadow. This Rebirth was Foretold by Gitara Moroso, just before the moment of her death. See also al'Thor, Rand; Chosen One; Dragon Reborn; Kinslayer; Lord of the Morning; Promised One; Telamon, Lews Therin.

    Chapter 3: Practice

  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 Dragon. It is said he will be Reborn at mankind's greatest hour of need to save the world. His Rebirth was Foretold by Gitara Moroso just before her death; in fact, the shock of the Foretelling was what killed her. 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—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She is very slender, and has quick eyes to catch anyone who is not following her lead.
  33. Myrelle Berengari, NS, p. 50—Accepted from Altara. She earned the great serpent ring the same year Moiraine and Siuan earned theirs. Olive-skinned and beautiful, she is almost as tall as Siuan. She is gregarious and mercurial, with a boisterous sense of humor and a worse temper than Moiraine. Moiraine and Myrelle began novice training with heated words, but they eventually became close friends.
  34. Tarna Feir, NS, p. 53—Accepted from northern Altara. She is taller than Siuan. She has pale yellow hair and cold blue eyes. Tarna is very arrogant, and lacks a sense of humor entirely. She spent nine years as a novice, and gained the great serpent ring one year before Siuan and Moiraine did. She had few friends as a novice, and has even fewer as an Accepted.
  35. Aledrin, NS, p. 56—Aes Sedai of the White Ajah. Moiraine heard her say that all Accepted were to test for the shawl immediately at the assembly in the Oval Lecture Hall where Tamra announced her plan to pay bounty. She is very excitable.
  36. Zemaille, NS, p. 56—One of the Accepted. She is slim, and very dark, with straight black hair to her waist and various black tattoos on her hands. Moiraine thinks it is likely she will choose the Brown or perhaps the White Ajah when raised. She is one of the Sea Folk; there are only four Sea Folk sisters among the Aes Sedai, and all are Browns. Two of them are very old, as old as Gitara Moroso was before she died. She spent ten years as a novice, and eight so far as Accepted.
  37. Aisling Noon, NS, p. 57—One of the Accepted. She is very tall. She is a rarity in the Tower, one of the Tuatha'an, the Traveling People. She spent five years as a novice, and was raised to Accepted the same year as Moiraine and Siuan.
  38. Verin Mathwin, NS, p. 57—Stout Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She is even shorter than Moiraine, plump, and dreamy-eyed.
  39. Alanna Mosvani, NS, p. 59—One of the Accepted. She is shy, but she works hard at being fierce. She wants to be a Green and have a dozen Warders. She is always exaggerating. At the meeting at which Tamra announced her plan for the bounty, she asked if the Accepted would be allowed to defend themselves with the One Power. The answer was no.

    Chapter 4: Leaving the Tower

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  40. Meidani, NS, p. 62—One of the Accepted.
  41. Katerine Alruddin, NS, p. 62—One of the Accepted. She has a sharp face, black wavy hair, and an acid tongue at times.
  42. Carlinya, NS, p. 63—One of the Accepted.
  43. Pritalle Nerbaijan, NS, p. 63—One of the Accepted. She has green eyes and an unusually small nose, at least for a Saldaean.

  46. Coladara, NS, p. 63—One of the Accepted.
  47. Atuan Larisett, NS, p. 63—One of the Accepted.
  48. Arrow, NS, p. 64—Moiraine's horse. She purchased her to celebrate being raised to Accepted. She is not tall, though she has more stamina than larger horses. She is fast, too, and a good jumper.
  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—Accepted from Tarabon. She is the most beautiful woman in the Accepted's quarters, with the possible exception of Ellid, though she seems blissfully unaware of this. She has very little tact for a sheepherder's daughter, and a sharp tongue. She is often unaware when she says something wrong. She and Moiraine are friends.
  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.

  54. Sedrin a'Conlin, NS, p. 80—Meri's week-old son. 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, and Moiraine's uncle. He was killed in the battle of the Shining Walls along with his brothers Moressin and Aldecain. He was a distant man who burned with ambition. Moiraine believes he never married because even becoming queen of Cairhien was not sufficient enticement to marry him. 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—Flame-haired Accepted with a room near Siuan's. She is slim, with tilted green eyes. She grew up in Saldaea. She is a very good cook, and likes baking. One of the biggest gossips among the Accepted, it is wise to keep a careful tongue around her. Despite this, Moiraine considers her a close friend and confidant. She sleeps like the dead.
  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 told Sheriam that the Aiel were retreating.
  70. Ryma Galfrey, NS, p. 99—Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah. She told Sheriam that the Aiel were retreating.
  71. Jennet, NS, p. 99—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She told Sheriam that the Aiel were retreating.
  72. Laras, NS, p. 104—Tower cook. She is plump, short of her middle years, and more than pretty, though she can frown a hole through a stone.
  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.

  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—Sitter for the Gray Ajah. She has slashes of white at her temples, a commanding presence, liquid brown eyes, and long black hair. Moiraine's head comes only to her shoulders. She hinted, very subtly, that Moiraine herself should claim the Sun Throne herself.
  80. Taringail Damodred, NS, p. 110—Cairhienin-born husband of the Queen of Andor. He is Moiraine's half-brother. He is denied the Sun Throne of Cairhien due to his marriage to the Queen of Andor, leaving very few choices for the Sun Throne in succession. 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—Sitter for the Red Ajah. She asked Moiraine, directly, if she had ever considered taking the Sun Throne herself.

    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. She somehow makes a square face lovely, and a stocky build elegant and graceful. See also Machera, Elyas; Waylin.
  86. Waylin, NS, p. 115—One of Rina's Warders. See also Hafden, Rina.
  87. Elyas Machera, NS, p. 115—One of Rina's Warders. 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.
  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.

  103. Rafela Cindal, NS, p. 158—Slim, dark, pretty Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She is young, too young to have the ageless face yet. She is the sister who gives Siuan her shawl.

  111. Carewin Damodred, NS, p. 173—Moiraine's great-grandmother. She ruled Cairhien for over fifty years.

  117. Sierin Vayu, NS, p. 196—Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah, raised to the Amyrlin Seat after the death of Tamra Ospenya, who allegedly died in her sleep. Traditionally, a newly raised Amyrlin grants indulgences and relief from penances on the day she is raised; Sierin granted none, and dismissed all male clerks in the Tower within a week, for various vague reasons. Three sisters were exiled from Tar Valon for a year, and two were stripped, stretched on the triangle, and birched in the Traitor's Court. She is quite plump, and has a round face that seems constructed for jolliness, but she wears grimness as though it were carved there. She is slightly taller than Moiraine, and has hard eyes. She is merciless. 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.

However, most think of Sierin as more Red than Gray anyway.
  119. Duhara Basaheen, NS, p. 197—Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah from Arad Doman. Slim and beautiful despite being a hand and a half taller than Moiraine. Her full lips have a meanness about them, and her eyes search for fault. She is much weaker than Moiraine in the One Power, but now that she has been appointed Keeper of the Chronicles under Sierin Vayu, that matters little. It is tradition to appoint a Keeper from the Ajah one was raised from, but Sierin was raised from the Gray while Duhara was from the Red. However, most think of Sierin as more Red than Gray anyway. See also Keeper of the Chronicles; Vayu, Sierin.

  143. Cadsuane Melaidhrin, NS, p. 228—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. She has iron-gray hair and black eyes, and always wears ornaments in her hair. She is the only woman who Moiraine knows that is considerably stronger than Moiraine herself is in the Power. She was presumed dead until she appeared during the Aiel War. It is said she bent Tower law whenever it suited her, flouted custom, and always did her own thing, often dragging others with her. It is whispered that she even assaulted an Amyrlin once. Moiraine knows this cannot be true—she would have been executed—but she also admits that where her friend Siuan was born to lead, Cadsuane was born to command. She is the strongest Aes Sedai in the Tower for the past 1000 years.

  185. Egwene al'Vere, tEotW, p. 5 [1]—A nine-year-old girl from Emond's Field. She is the daughter of Bran, the Mayor of Emond's Field, and his wife Marin. Egwene has four older sisters; Berowyn, Alene, Elisa, and Loise; and resents them at times for treating her as the baby of the family. Egwene dislikes dogs, and is not considered big for her age. She loves her village and its customs, but she is beginning to wonder what the world outside it is like. After reaching the age of eighteen, Egwene earns the right to wear her hair in a braid for the first time, the Two Rivers symbol of womanhood. She has large brown eyes. She and Rand have been all but Promised to each other since she was nine; this makes him uncomfortable. Nynaeve discovered that Egwene has the ability to Listen to the Wind, a Talent that all Wisdoms claim to possess but few actually do.

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 Ayellin, Dav.
  191. Perrin Aybara, tEotW, p. 4 [4]—A boy of about thirteen years of age from Emond's field. He is one of the tallest boys in Emond's Field, even taller than Rand, one of his two best friends (though since Rand is not yet finished growing, it is possible he will catch Perrin eventually). He is also good friends with Mat Cauthon, who often gets Perrin and Rand into trouble. He has curly hair, and is very stocky and generally big. He is very shy and laughs seldomly; Egwene perceives him to be dense, though she is starting to realize he may simply be overly contemplative and careful. His parents recently arranged to have him apprenticed to Haral Luhhan, the blacksmith of Emond's Field. Perrin has two younger sisters, Adora and Deselle (eight and three, respectively) and one younger brother, Paetram, who is an infant. As an adult, Perrin ended up about half a head shorter than Rand, and also a fair bit shorter than Mat as well. He is still larger of build than both of them, however, which works well for a blacksmith.

  192. Rand al'Thor, tEotW, p. 1 [4]—Shepherd from the Two Rivers. He is the second tallest boy in Emond's Field, and may soon be taller than his friend Perrin as well. He has grey eyes and reddish hair, both of which are unheard of in the Two Rivers. His mother died when Rand was five; Egwene thinks he envies boys that have mothers. Rand is good friends with Mat Cauthon and Perrin Aybara. As a twenty year-old, Rand is about a head taller than Perrin, and taller than Mat as well. Rand and the Mayor's daughter, Egwene, have been all but Promised to each other since they were both young; this is often the subject of ridicule by Mat and Perrin.

  194. Deselle Aybara, tEotW, p. [4]—Perrin's three-year-old sister. She enjoys “flying” (Perrin holding her arms and spinning her until her feet leave the ground). See also al'Caar, Paet; Aybara, Adora; Aybara, Carlin; Aybara, Con; Aybara, Ealsin; Aybara, Joslyn; Aybara, Magde; Aybara, Neain; Aybara, Paetram; Aybara, Perrin; Candwin, Eward.
  195. Adora Aybara, tEotW, p. [4]—Perrin's eight-year-old sister. She seemed upset that her mother and father were detaining her at the forge when she could have been playing with her friends—she will not be asked to carry water for another year. She tells Egwene, “everybody says she'll marry Rand al'Thor”; Egwene was aware that her parents and perhaps Rand's father thought this, but not that everyone thought so….

  196. Haral Luhhan, tEotW, p. 17 [4]—Blacksmith of Emond's Field. His arms are as big as most men's legs, and his chest strains his shirt. He is the tallest man in the Two Rivers. Master Luhhan has recently aquired a new apprentice in Perrin Aybara. His wife, Alsbet, is almost as large as he is. He sits on the Village Council. See also Aybara, Perrin; Luhhan, Alsbet.
  197. Joslyn Aybara, tEotW, p. [5]—Mother of Perrin, Adora, Deselle, and Paetram and wife of Con. She is very pretty, in Egwene's view, who thinks her smile could make the Sun bide its head in defeat. See also al'Caar, Paet; Aybara, Adora; Aybara, Carlin; Aybara, Con; Aybara, Deselle; Aybara, Ealsin; Aybara, Magde; Aybara, Neain; Aybara, Paetram; Aybara, Perrin; Candwin, Eward.

  199. Cilia Cole, tEotW, p. [5]—Pink-cheeked girl of eleven from Emond's Field. Egwene considers her a “ninny.” She likes to stare and make calf-eyes at Perrin; Egwene thinks Perrin at least ought to notice her attentions. We find out later, of course, that Cilia eventually gave Perrin his first kiss.
  200. Matrim (Mat) Cauthon, tEotW, p. 4 [6]—Boy of about 13 years of age from Emond's Field. He has brown eyes. Mat is known for his practical jokes and other mischief, often getting his best friends in trouble with him. He is good friends with Rand al'Thor and Perrin Aybara, though he seems to have a contest going with Dav Ayellin as to who can get the other into the most trouble. He has two younger sisters, Bodewhin and Eldrin. As a twenty year-old, Mat has grown to be one of the tallest men in the Two Rivers. He is still known for his practical jokes and other mischief; whenever something goes wrong in Emond's Field, Mat is the one everyone looks to first. See also al'Hune, Jer; al'Meara, Nynaeve; al'Thor, Rand; al'Vere, Egwene; Aybara, Perrin; Cauthon, Abell; Cauthon, Bodewhin; Cauthon, Eldrin; Cauthon, Natti; Daughter of the Nine Moons; Empress (of Seanchan), The; Hornsounder; Knotai; Lewin, Kiem; Melindhra; Mitsobar, Tylin Quintara; Mordeth; Paendrag, Fortuona Athaem Devi; Paendrag, Tuon Athaem Kore; Prince of the Ravens; Trakand, Elayne.
  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]—Main character in Egwene's favorite book, The Travels of Jain Farstrider. He has traveled all over the world, including the lands beyond the Aiel Waste and the Great Blight. He disappeared years ago and has not been heard from since.
  205. Doral Barran, tEotW, p. 268 [7]—Wisdom of Emond's Field. She is the oldest woman in Emond's Field, possibly in the entire Two Rivers. She is white-haired and frail, though still clear-eyed and not stooped at all. Her last apprentice died of a mysterious illness that she could not cure. She currently has another apprentice, Nynaeve al'Meara, who has been studying under her for three years. See also al'Meara, Nynaeve.
  206. Nynaeve al'Meara, tEotW, p. 7 [7]—Young woman from Emond's Field. She has brown hair and eyes, and is quite slender. She has been studying under Doral Barran, the Wisdom of Emond's Field, for about three years. Many people in the village think she is too young to be apprenticed to a Wisdom, and that Mistress Barran should have chosen someone years older when Nynaeve's predecessor died mysteriously. Nynaeve is a very quick learner, and has been allowed to braid her hair for a year now. She has developed the ability to sense Egwene's presence without seeing her since the end of the breakbone fever epidemic. Mistress Barran seems to have caught on to some of Nynaeve's abilities—she seemed disappointed that the wound Nynaeve was bandaging did not seem more healed than it was when she started. After Mistress Barran's death, Nynaeve herself became the Wisdom. Her adult height is about as tall as Mat's shoulder. Many people still think Nynaeve is too young to be the Wisdom; however, mentioning this to her is a good way to get whacked by the stick she carries.
  207. Bili Congar, tEotW, p. 34 [7]—A man from Emond's Field. According to Egwene, he is always doing stupid things and always getting hurt. She has very little, if any, respect for him. He is of an age with Haral Luhhan, but he looks as though he is about ten years older due to his hollow cheeks and sunken eyes. Egwene encountered him with the Wisdom after he sliced open his leg due to being drunk while trying to shear sheep. It is later revealed that he does not believe in the Dark One, Darkfriends, Aes Sedai, or any of the other stories. He once named the Dark One, but when ill fortune struck his crops for months afterwards, he scowled at anyone (such as Mat) who attempted to get him to do so again.
  208. Elisa al'Vere, tEotW, p. [8]—Third oldest of five daughters of Marin and Bran al'Vere of Emond's Field. She is eighteen. She wears her hair to her waist, tied with a blue kerchief—the Women's Circle has not yet granted her the privilege of wearing it braided. She is one year older than Nynaeve. She is very fond of quotations; Egwene finds in annoying when they get stuck in her head. 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.
  209. Calle Coplin, tEotW, p. [8]—Young woman from Emond's Field. She is twenty years old, almost twenty-one, though she still has not been granted the privilege of wearing her hair in a braid, the symbol of womanhood in Emond's Field. She enjoys flirting, and does not seem to be bothered by the fact that many girls as many as four years her junior are considered grown women while she is not.
  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—he actually lives on a farm between Deven Ride and Emond's Field. Egwene thinks his ears look funny, but many of the other girls in the village think Wil is quite pretty. As a teen, he always had girls staring at him and whispering behind his back. He courted every girl, and managed to convince all of them that he was just being polite to the others.
  212. Paet al'Caar, tEotW, p. 109 [9]—Shepherd from near Emond's Field. He is in town to help with shearing. Years later, he was among those that supported Hari Coplin in his accusations that Moiraine brought the Trollocs to Emond's Field on Winternight. His son, Wil, had his leg broken in that attack and was Healed by Moiraine, so Paet was less fervent in his accusations. See also al'Caar, Nela; al'Caar, Wil; Aybara, Adora; Aybara, Carlin; Aybara, Con; Aybara, Deselle; Aybara, Ealsin; Aybara, Joslyn; Aybara, Magde; Aybara, Neain; Aybara, Perrin; Candwin, Eward.

  214. Dav Ayellin, tEotW, p. 11 [10]—Boy from Emond's Field, of an age with Mat. He and Mat are friends, and like to get into mischief together. In fact, he and Mat seem to have a competition over who can get into the most trouble. See also Ayellin, Corin.
  215. Lem Thane, tEotW, p. 51 [10]—Son of Jon Thane, miller of Emond's Field. He is about eight months younger than Rand. Like the three boys that left Emond's Field on Winternight, he saw the Black Rider.

  218. Dannil Lewin, tEotW, p. [12]—Boy from Emond's Field. He is thirteen years old, even skinnier than Rand, and has a thrusting nose.
  219. Brandelwyn (Bran) al'Vere, tEotW, p. 7 [12]—Mayor of Emond's Field and innkeeper of the Winespring Inn. He is the father of five girls, including Egwene. He has a large girth, about double of anyone else, and a fringe of thinning gray hair. He is known around town as being very stubborn, and not someone to be trifled with. 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]—Woman from Emond's Field, mother of Mat. She is always calm and collected, which Egwene figures is necessary for someone with a son like Mat. She always seems to know about Mat's escapades; Mat is not sure how she always knows, but it is obvious to Egwene that his two younger sisters enjoy the role of tattletale. See also Cauthon, Abell; Cauthon, Bodewhin; Cauthon, Eldrin; Cauthon, Matrim.
  221. Bodewhin (Bode) Cauthon, tEotW, p. [12]—Girl from Emond's Field. She is eight years old, one year younger than Egwene. She seems to enjoy telling on her brother, Mat, after he has gotten himself into mischief (which is quite often). See also Cauthon, Abell; Cauthon, Eldrin; Cauthon, Matrim; Cauthon, Natti.
  222. Eldrin Cauthon, tEotW, p. [12]—Girl from Emond's Field. She is about two years younger than Egwene. She seems to enjoy telling on her brother, Mat, after he has gotten himself into mischief (which is quite often). 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]—Thatcher in Emond's Field. He is gnarled but spry, and speaks with a raspy voice. He sits on the Village Council, but is probably the most disagreeable member on it.
  225. Tamlin (Tam) al'Thor, tEotW, p. 2 [13]—Rand's father, a shepherd in the Two Rivers. He has a thick, broad chest and a broad face, gray hair with black streaks in it. His cheeks have been roughened by the sun. He is a solid man. Keeping his word is important to him. When Tam was young, he left the Two Rivers to see the outside world, something which is extremely rare in the Two Rivers. While there he acquired a sword, and married Kari, a woman from Caemlyn. Since Kari's death fifteen years ago, Tam has raised Rand himself. Since Tam has been alone and without a wife for so long, many women in Emond's Field have been trying to find a match for him recently. They've also started to think about who would be good for his son as well. Tam is very quiet, and keeps largely to himself, but almost everyone in the Two Rivers likes him. 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]—Young man from Emond's Field. He is Master al'Dai's grandson. See also al'Dai, Bili; al'Dai, Hu.

  229. Lanfear, tEotW, p. 539 [15]—One of the Forsaken, the thirteen Aes Sedai who dedicated their lives to the Shadow during the War of the Shadow. Her name is still used to frighten children into behaving as they should—it is said that she waits for children who steal.

She was dissapointed to find out that Mat had already blown it, and was shocked to find that Rand is the Dragon Reborn. She uses the name Faile, a name her father used to call her, meaning “falcon.” This scared Perrin, since he'd been told by Min that she saw a falcon and a hawk fighting over him in her visions.

They also tell Mat that he will die and live another life, part of  “what was,” and that he will “give up half the light of the world to save the world.” She is most likely the heir to the Seanchan throne, since the Seanchan royal assembly is called the Court of the Nine Moons.

  733. Jeade'en, tSR, p. 353 (313)—Rand's stallion. His name means “true finder” in the Old Tongue. Rand chose it because it was the name of Jain Farstrider's horse, and he hoped the horse would serve him as well as the original Jeade'en served Jain.

  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.

  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.

  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.

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.

  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.

  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.

See also Coumin; Eronaile, Mierin; Nalla.

  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.

Mierin thought she had found a new Source for the One Power, one that did not have separate halves for males and females. The power she had actually discovered turned out to be emissions from the Dark One's prison; when she bored into it, the Dark One was able to touch the world for the first time in thousands of years. 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.

  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)—Farmer from the Two Rivers whose farm was attacked by Trollocs. His family and he are staying with Jac al'Seen.
  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. Jac al'Seen plans to reach his farm before sunset the day Perrin convinces him to leave for Emond's Field.
  811. Bandry (Ban) al'Seen, tSR, p. 535 (482)—Wil's cousin, Jac's son. He got all of the nose in his family (it is not clear whether this means he has a really huge nose, or whether he's the only one in the family with a nice nose).
  812. Tell Lewin, tSR, p. 535 (482)—Flann's nephew, and Dannil's cousin. He and Dannil look so much like Flann that they could be sons (or even clones) instead of nephews. See also al'Seen, Bandry; Lewin, Dannil; Lewin, Flann; Lewin, Tell.
  813. Hu Marwin, tSR, p. 537 (484)—Best tracker among Perrin's recruits. Note that this Hu should not be confused with Hu Barran, the stablehand at the Winespring Inn, or Hu al'Dai, an older man from the Two Rivers.
  814. Jaim Torfinn, tSR, p. 537 (484)—Best shot among Perrin's recruits.
  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. See also al'Thor, Rand; Coramoor; Dragon Reborn; He Who Comes With the Dawn.
  818. Shaiel, tSR, p. 561 (506)—Rand's actual 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 if she did not become a Maiden of the Spear. After a year she was adopted into the Jumai sept of the Taardad Aiel. Shaiel became pregnant during the Aiel War, and gave birth to a son, after which she died. 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 persists today, 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. It is said he was killed leading warriors in the Blight by man who looked so much like Shaiel that he was unable to raise his spear to defend himself. Editor's note: It is beyond reasonable doubt that Janduin's killer was Luc Mantear, Shaiel's brother, who disappeared into the Blight at the behest of Gitara Sedai. See also al'Thor, Rand; Damodred, Tigraine; Shaiel.

  820. Dorindha, tSR, p. 587 (529)—A Maiden of the Spear with red hair; she is about Egwene's age. 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)—Peddler who runs into Rand, Rhuarc, and the rest of their party in the Waste. Rhuarc tells Kadere that he was fortunate to meet them, for had they continued on, they would have reached Rhuidean—if they had done so, Kadere and all of his party would most likely have been executed. See also Isendre; Natael, Jasin; Shaogi, Keille.
  822. Keille Shaogi, tSR, p. 592 (533)—Heavy woman who travels with Kadere. She sells Mat his hat for a gold mark. She is a very strange character, who knows odd information about the world. See also Eronaile, Mierin; Kadere, Hadnan; Lanfear; Selene.

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.

  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. He asks Carridin for help from the Children to restore order in the city of Tanchico. He is a graying man, and wears a lion mask for his meeting with Carridin. See also Aelfdene Casmir Lounault, Amathera.

  838. Eldrith Jhondar, tSR, p. 631 (569)—Plump Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah. She was of the Brown Ajah to the rest of the Tower until she left with Liandrin. She hates cats—things might get complicated if Marillin Gemalphin finds out Eldrith has been killing the stray cats she has been adopting.
  839. Marillin Gemalphin, tSR, p. 631 (569)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah. She is quite fond of cats, and is rarely seen without one. She was publicly Brown Ajah until she left with Liandrin.
  840. Asne Zeramene, tSR, p. 632 (570)—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah with dark, tilted eyes and a bold nose. She grew up in Saldaea. She was of the Green Ajah (openly, at least) before leaving with Liandrin; she regrets leaving her Warders behind when she left the Tower.
  841. Bethamin Zeami, tSR, p. 638 (575)—A sul'dam who was left behind after the battle at Falme, now 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 and Bethamin's surprise, the a'dam held Bethamin just as well as it held the damane it was intended for. 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. See also Emain, Renna; Zarbey, Seta.

  1567. Doraise Mesianos, aCoS, p. 509 (652)—Aes Sedai of the Brown 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 Doraise helped turn one of them in.

  1572. Pevara Tazanovni, aCoS, p. 515 (660)—Sitter for the Red Ajah. She was friends with Seaine as a novice; the two maintained the friendship, although it was a bit restrained due to the constraints that the Red Ajah puts on its members about making friends outside the Ajah. She is short for a Kandori, and quite plump. She has dark eyes. She was once punished for voicing her desire to have a Warder; later, as a Sitter, when she was safer from the wrath of the Ajah, she openly suggested that Warders would make the job of a Red sister much easier. Seaine thinks she would have been happier as a Green. When she was small, many members of her family were killed by Darkfriends; it is for this reason that Seaine confides in her about searching for Darkfriends in the White Tower.

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. See also Fain, Padan; Ordeith.

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.

    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.

  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.

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.

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.

His story could have been drawn from legends: he had lain wounded for hours before managing to pull himself into the saddle by the reins; the horse carried him, nearly unconscious, for hours before arriving at a village, where the villagers had been tempted to sell him to a group of bandits. The mayor's daughter argued for his life, convincing everyone that only Darkfriends would seek wounded Warders. The villagers hid him, and the girl nursed him to health. He was forced to leave in secret, as the girl had taken a liking to him, but in return he hunted down the bandits and killed them so they would never trouble the village again. Hattori told him she would not take a second Warder unless Sleete believed the person to be worthy. He is one of the only Warders to have ever bettered Lan Mandragoran, back when Lan still practiced with the other Warders. Sleete beat Lan in two of their seven duels, and Lan is widely considered the best Warder and Blademaster in the world. However, Gawyn beats Sleete in every duel, even when Sleete has a capable partner. Sleete asked Gawyn if he would be interested in being Hattori's second Warder; Gawyn politely declined.

    Serpent icon
  2552. Ramola, ToM, p. 589—Aes Sedai of the Black Ajah. Egwene encounters her in Tel'aran'rhiod, fighting back-to-back with Alviarin; they were bait, attempting to get Egwene to chase them into Mesaana's trap. Unfortunately for all of them, no trap would hold Egwene in the World of Dreams that day.
  2553. Sammana, ToM, p. 593—Wise One Dreamwalker from Bair's youth. She once encountered something in the Dream that broke her mind. She spent the rest of her waking days drooling and needing diapers. She never spoke to anyone again.

  2554. Nakomi, ToM, p. 604—Aiel with furrowed skin. Aviendha encounters her on her way to Rhuidean in the Three-fold Land. She wears Aiel garb; not cadinsor, not Wise One garb, just normal clothes. Aviendha does not know what to make of her.

  2558. King Yukobin the Undaunted, ToM, p. 642—Legendary Kandori king. His forces were pushed back as far as the Silverwall Keeps, a large fortification on the two sides of Firchon Pass.

    Chapter 46: Working Leather

    Dragon's Fang icon
  2565. Androl Genhald, ToM, p. 677—Leatherworker for the Asha'man in the Black Tower. He was originally blocked; he could only channel the One Power while holding a piece of leather. Taim beat his block out of him personally. He is the weakest of the Dedicated—he was only raised because Logain appealed directly to Rand and got him raised over Taim's express objections. His talent for Traveling is almost beyond belief; he can make gateways much larger than he should be able to make, given his strength. He has a faint Taraboner accent.
  2566. Cuellar, ToM, p. 678—Knife sharpener for the Black Tower.
  2567. Garfin, ToM, p. 681—Androl's first guard instructor. He has one arm. His accent is of Illian, and is heavily nasal and virtually incomprehensible. He taught Androl about the Void.
  2568. Trost, ToM, p. 681—Young man from the Two Rivers, now a Soldier in the Black Tower.
  2569. Emarin, ToM, p. 684—Soldier in the Black Tower. He is old, with thin hair and wrinkled eyes. He has a short white beard that he keeps trimmed to a point. He is an enigma; he arrived one day with Logain, saying nothing of his past. He is distinguished, with a poised bearing and a delicate way of speaking. He is almost certainly nobly born. He makes no attempt to assert his presumed authority. He took to life in the Black Tower immediately. Editor's note: There is a distinct possibility that this Emarin and Emarin Pendaloan, Algarin's younger brother, are the same person. That Emarin was captured by Cadsuane and gentled, though he survived for at least ten years afterward. Algarin seemed to think that Emarin was dead, however. See also Canler; Pendaloan, Algarin; Pendaloan, Emarin.
  2570. Jonneth Dowtry, ToM, p. 684—Young man from the Two Rivers, now a Soldier in the Black Tower. He is the most skilled of the Soldiers from the Two Rivers, which is saying something. He is large and quiet, and has a round face. He is Buel's grandson. See also Dowtry, Buel.
  2571. Coteren, ToM, p. 684—One of Taim's cronies in the Black Tower. He is bulky, with black, oily hair that he wears long and loose. He has a blunt face, pudgy cheeks, and focused, dangerous eyes.
  2572. Nensen, ToM, p. 689—Man who has been exceedingly successful after Taim's “lessons.” His success has the other recruits eager for their own private lessons. He was barely powerful enough to be raised to the Dedicated a short time ago; now he is a full Asha'man. Androl worries he learns too quickly, perhaps impossibly so.
  2573. Kash, ToM, p. 690—One of the Asha'man. He appeared out of nowhere, and grew powerful very quickly.

  2576. Denezel, ToM, p. 705—Innkeeper of The Happy Throng, an inn in Caemlyn where Mat and Perrin reunite. He is all but Dragonsworn: he had a portrait of Rand commissioned and hung the common room.
  2577. Master Golden, ToM, p. 708—Pseudonym used by Perrin while in Andor to avoid drawing the attentions of Darkfriends and other unwanted people.
  2578. Villiam Bloodletter, ToM, p. 709—Man who outwitted the Banath people by painting a decoy soldier red every day so he looked like the leader. It was his first and last battle with them.

    Aiel icon
  2579. Malidra, ToM, p. 715—Eighteen year-old whom Aviendha becomes on her first step through the columns the second time through. She is scrawny enough to appear even younger than eighteen.

  2580. Jorshem, ToM, p. 716—Man who showed Malidra a large nail he pried up from the Lightmakers' massive roadway during Aviendha's first step through the columns of Rhuidean on her second trip. He used to be a clan chief, one of the three who survived to the meeting with Ladalin, Mora, Tamaar, and Takai. He is small, and has a hawk-like face. He has some Andoran blood from his grandfather. Editor's Note: I suspect most of us would call the “roadway” a “railroad.”
  2581. Flern, ToM, p. 717—Malidra's attacker; she was going through his trash for food at the time.

  2584. Meise, ToM, p. 719—Norlesh and Metalan's only living child, now that Garham is dead, during Aviendha's second step through the crystal columns in Rhuidean the second time. She has not spoken a word for months, ever since her older brother died of exposure. See also Garham; Metalan; Norlesh.
  2585. Metalan, ToM, p. 719—Norlesh's husband during Aviendha's second step through the columns of Rhuidean on her second trip. He was once a good man, but he is now a shell of what he once was.

  2586. Raven Empress, ToM, p. 719—Name used by the Aiel for the Seanchan Empress during Aviendha's steps through the crystal columns of Rhuidean the second time through.

    Chapter 49: Court of the Sun

    Aiel icon
  2590. Ladalin, ToM, p. 724—Wise One of Taardad Aiel. Aviendha sees through her eyes during her fourth step through the columns of Rhuidean her second time through. She cannot channel, though she very much wishes she could. War with the Seanchan is all she has ever known. She remembers the strikes on Almoth Plain. She spent her youth training, then fighting battles in Tear. She and Mora are the only remaining Wise Ones who, along with the three remaining clan chiefs, are all that is left of the Council of 22. She has a son. She is of the Dragon Reborn's line, one of the last living. All of his other descendants have died (in her timeline, at least). See also Mora; Takai; Tamaar.
  2591. Mora, ToM, p. 724—Wise One of the Goshien Aiel during Aviendha's fourth step through the columns of Rhuidean her second trip through. She cannot channel.

  2592. Tamaar, ToM, p. 725—Last of the five remaining members of the Concil of 22 to arrive at the meeting. Ladalin and Mora are the only remaining Wise Ones there. He looks as old as Ladalin feels. His face is scarred, and his left eye is missing. He has always been blunt. He was a friend of Ladalin's husband, who died a year ago. Tamaar's scouts brought word that the White Tower had fallen. Ladalin muses that she would have laid a bridal wreath at his feet, had times been different. See also Ladalin; Mora; Takai.
  2593. Takai, ToM, p. 725—Clan chief of the Miagoma Aiel during Aviendha's fourth step through the columns of Rhuidean on her second trip. He is the third Miagoma chief in three years, and the youngest surviving member of the Council of 22—only two other chiefs and two Wise Ones still live.
  2594. Oncala, ToM, p. 727—Person through whose eyes Aviendha sees her fifth step through the columns of Rhuidean on her second trip. She is likely to marry Hehyal. It was she who devised the plot to drag Andor into the war against the Seanchan, which eventually brought ruin to both Andor and the Aiel. She is Aviendha's granddaughter. See also Aviendha; Hehyal; Talana.
  2595. Hehyal, ToM, p. 727—Aielman from Aviendha's fifth step through the columns of Rhuidean on her second trip. He has killed more Seanchan than any of his society.

  2598. Padra, ToM, p. 731—Person Aviendha becomes during her sixth step through the columns the second time around. She is is the daughter of Aviendha and Rand. She and her siblings have been able to channel since they were children, even though the ability usually only manifests at adolescence. She is convinced that no living person understands the One Power the way she and her siblings do; all others who can channel seem awkward by comparison. She is a Maiden of the Spear as well. She can weave gateways without thinking, and holds the One Power perpetually, even when asleep. She and her siblings have elevated status amoung the Aiel, which is why she is allowed to be a Maiden despite being able to channel. The four of them are quadruplets, but nonetheless look very dissimilar. See also al'Thor, Rand; Alarch; Aviendha; Janduin; Marinna.
  2599. Tarra, ToM, p. 731—Maiden of the Spear of the Taardad Aiel during Aviendha's sixth step through the columns the second time around. She died in the Seanchan attack.
  2600. Ronam, ToM, p. 731—Clan chief of the Taardad Aiel during Aviendha's sixth step through the columns of Rhuidean the second time through. He is Rhuarc's son. He is an excellent chief, as his father was: wise, but willing to do battle when it was necessary. Rhuarc once told him that he considered the previous Empress to be an honorable woman, but her daughter is not. He is ten years older than Padra, and handsome. He met Rand when he first came to Cold Rocks Hold. See also Rhuarc.
  2601. Alarch, ToM, p. 733—Padra's brother, son of Rand and Aviendha during Aviendha's sixth step through the columns on her second trip through them. He and his siblings are supremely gifted in use of the One Power; they were able to channel since childhood.

Her plans have led to the death of three of the Chosen: Aran'gar, whom she shielded and bound in Natrin's Barrow so she would die by Rand's balefire; Asmodean, whom she killed herself, and Mesaana, who was trapped in the White Tower because of Graendal's Dreamspike and could not flee to a safe area in Tel'aran'rhiod during the fight with Egwene and the Aes Sedai.

Bayrd, aMoL, p. 15—Andoran soldier serving under Jarid Sarand. he is highly unnerved by the symptoms of the Dark One's touch on the world, especially the fact that his coins are now soft enough to accept his fingerprints. He is one of ten soldiers amongst Jarid's personal guard. He has an interest, passed from Pappil, in masonry; he felt uncomfortable as a butcher, his father's trade, but he feels at home as part of his lord's guard.

He was a horrible person, particularly to underlings. He had a strong force, large enough that the king dared not disperse it. His mercenaries deserted him, too. Though he does not admit it openly, Androl may have been one of the men who fought against him.
  2659. Fanshir, aMoL, p. 58—Soldier in the Black Tower. He used to be a scholar. His book on Tairen noble lines led Androl to discern Emarin's true identity.
  2660. Jesamyn, aMoL, p. 59—One of the Kin. She was unable to Heal Talmanes's wound, caused by multiple cuts from a Thakan'dar-forged blade. She is young looking, and has golden hair. She is the only one of the four Kin that Elayne left behind in Caemlyn that survived the Trolloc invasion.
  2661. Hessalam, aMoL, p. 68—One of the Chosen. She is, for lack of a better word, a hag. She has a hooked, bulbuous nose and off-center, pale eyes. She is the reincarnation of Graendal. Her new name means “Without Remorse” in the Old Tongue. She is now forbidden to use her Chosen name, and is even lower in the eyes of the Shadow than Moghedien. See also Graendal.
  2662. Ryden, aMoL, p. 73—Commander of Aludra's dragons.

See also al'Vere, Egwene; Nedeal, Corianin.
  2665. Kert Wagoner, aMoL, p. 90—Young man from the Two Rivers. He serves as a sentry in the Two Rivers army, and is slightly older than Perrin.

  2670. Leems, aMoL, p. 125—One of Taim's favored Asha'man. He and Welyn tailed Dobser on his quest for wine, hoping to share in his prize.

  2675. Ansai of Ryddingwoood, aMoL, p. 200—A poet. King Easar is fond of her work, as is Moiraine. Each poem was written as an elegy.

    Heron-mark Sword icon
  2677. Bakh, aMoL, p. 212—Malkieri soldier. He kept a loaded crossbow on his horse at all times. He died when his sword caught in a Trolloc's armor: two more Trollocs pulled him down as he reached for his spare sword, so he pulled out the crossbow, hit a Trolloc in the eye with it at point-blank range, then put his boot knife in the other's neck just as it gutted him.
  2678. Ragon, aMoL, p. 213—Malkieri soldier. He died charging the Trollocs who were ambushing their flanks, buying time for the rest to face them. He saved Andere, among others.

  2683. Mandevwin, aMoL, p. 252—Pseudonym used by Mat in The Yearly Brawl to protect his true identity while in Ebou Dar. The real Mandevwin is an officer in the Band of the Red Hand. See also Mandevwin.

  2689. Barrin, aMoL, p. 315—One of Fortuona's personal bodyguards. He once stopped a man from breathing on her, suspecting the man was an assassin and his mouth was filled with poisons. He was right: the man did have a mouth full of poison.

    Chapter 22: The Wyld

    Serpent icon
  2702. Bao the Wyld, aMoL, p. 405—Alleged savior of the Sharan people. He bears a striking resemblance to Demandred: dark hair, light skin, a hooked nose, and very handsome in general. He wears armor made of all coins, silvery and overlapping, polished to a mirror-like luster. His Sharan accent is not as thick as the others' accents, likely because his is an imitation. The legend of Bao the Wyld is likely the Sharan equivalent of the Prophecies of the Dragon, or at least an interpretation of their role in them. Editor's note: we are led to assume that it was Demandred's theft of Bao the Wyld's persona that caused the Dark One to laugh when Demandred asked him whether he had done well. See also Coramoor; Demandred; Dragon, The; Dragon Reborn; He Who Is Owned Only by the Land.
  2703. He Who Is Owned Only by the Land, aMoL, p. 416—Sharan pseudonym for Bao the Wyld, the Dragonslayer. Editor's note: it is unclear whether Bao the Wyld was intended to be the Dragonslayer, or simply the Dragon. It would be just like Demandred to twist the prophecy to fit his aims. See Bao the Wyld.

  2722. Kiem Lewin, aMoL, p. 542—Young woman from Emond's Field. When Egwene was thirteen, Mat jumped into the river to save Kiem from drowning.

  2723. Jer al'Hune, aMoL, p. 542—Young man from Emond's Field. The spring after jumping in the river unnecessarily in an effort to “rescue” Kiem Lewin from drowning, Mat did the same for Jer.

    Dice icon
  2724. Classen Bayor, aMoL, p. 549—Someone from Mat's memories. He lost his cavalry in the marsh, leading to, or at least hastening, his defeat at the Battle of Kolesar. Mat wonders what he would have done with a gatway that overlooked the battlefield.

Min refrains herself from objecting that it does not work that way.
  2726. Handoin, aMoL, p. 553—One of Fortuona's rivals in Seanchan. When Min sees a white boar over a female soldier, Fortuona interprets it to mean that the soldier will betray her, and guesses she must work for him.

  2751. Baelder, aMoL, p. 674—Aiel, part of the Red Shield society. Rhuarc never met him before the battle at Thakan'dar, but their societal bond was enough to fight together nonetheless as brothers.

Fortuona was very interested in Min's ability. See also Farshaw, Elmindreda.
  2764. Renel, aMoL, p. 713—Woman present in the Dark One's second vision of the future. She sells fruit in Caemlyn from around the world, even detoxified peaches. Like many other residents of that version of Caemlyn, she thinks nothing of murdering a child who steals from her cart.

  2766. Celebrain, aMoL, p. 724—Soldier under Elayne. When Elayne was attacked by Demandred, Birgitte ordered him to raise another banner and ride the opposite way so that Demandred will follow him instead of Elayne. He eagerly accepted this mission, despite knowing it was a death sentence.
