Back to Wheel of Time characters.
  1. The Dragon, p. 9 (ix)—Name by which Lews Therin Telamon was known during the War of the Shadow. His Rebirth, the Dragon Reborn, is now alive and fulfilling all of the prophecies set to accompany him. See also al'Thor, Rand; Dragon Reborn; Kinslayer; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  2. Jurith Dorine, p. 9 (ix)—Right Hand to the Queen of Almoren in 742 AB, the Third Age. She wrote Commentaries on the Prophecies of the Dragon.

    Prologue: Fortress of the Light

    Children of the Light icon
  3. Lord Captain Commander Pedron Niall, p. 13 (1)—Lord Captain Commander of the Children of the Light. He has dark eyes and graying hair. He is the most powerful man among the Children, and even posesses king-like powers in Amadicia, where the Whitecloaks are based.
  4. Jaret Byar, p. 13 (1)—Officer among the Children of the Light with dark, deep-set eyes and a scraggly face. He comes to Pedron Niall with news of the battle at Falme. According to Niall, he is not very imaginative.
  5. Dragon Reborn, p. 14 (2)—According to the Karaethon Cycle, the Prophecies of the Dragon, the Dragon Reborn is 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. See also Ablar, Logain; al'Thor, Rand; Amalasan, Guaire; Darksbane, Raolin; Davian; Stonebow, Yurian; Taim, Mazrim.
  6. Lews Therin Telamon, p. 14 (2)—The Dragon, Lord of the Morning, Breaker of the World. He was perhaps the most influential man who ever lived, and the most powerful Aes Sedai ever. He led the strike which resealed the Dark One back into his prison, ending the Age of Legends and beginning the Time of Madness. Unfortunately, Lews Therin was driven insane along with the rest of the Hundred Companions with whom he resealed the prison; he went mad and killed everyone he loved as well as anyone who carried so much as one drop of his blood. For this reason, he was given the name Kinslayer, and his name is generally associated with evil, especially among the uneducated. He is especially despised by the Whitecloaks, the “Children of the Light,” who by their very name should be serving him. It is unfortunate that one of the greatest men who ever lived is as feared and despised as he is. See also al'Thor, Rand; Dragon, The; Dragon Reborn; Kinslayer; Lanfear; Moerelle, Ilyena Therin.
  7. Kinslayer, p. 14 (2)—Name given in fear to Lews Therin Telamon after he killed his family and everyone he ever loved in madness. See Dragon, The; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  8. Lord Captain Geofram Bornhald, p. 15 (3)—Lord Captain of the thousand or so Whitecloaks who died at Falme. He died with his men. He was the commander of the troops who captured Perrin and Egwene; when Perrin killed some of his men, Bornhald vowed to take Perrin back to Amador to be hanged. Despite this, he may have been one of the few Whitecloaks who saw beyond the propaganda of the Children, using his own wisdom to judge people instead of insisting everyone not in white cloaks was in league with the Shadow. See also Bornhald, Dain.
  9. The Creator, p. 15 (3)—The entity who created the world; in short, God. He has a strict policy of not directly interfering with worldly events, instead using a “Chosen One” to do what must be done. The last “Chosen One” was Lews Therin Telamon; the current one is Rand al'Thor. See also Shai'tan.
  10. Dark One, p. 15 (3)—Most common name, used in every land, for Shai'tan. See Shai'tan.
  11. Dain Bornhald, p. 16 (4)—Son of Geofram Bornhald. Jaret Byar was sent to tell him how his father had died. Dain was the leader of the band of Whitecloaks that stopped Verin, Egwene, Elayne, Nynaeve, and Hurin near Tar Valon. See also Bornhald, Geofram.
  12. Lord Captain Eamon Valda, p. 16 (4)—Officer of the Children of the Light. He commands Dain Bornhald. He is stationed near Tar Valon. Geofram Bornhald questioned his motives and worried that Dain would follow his orders blindly.
  13. Perrin Aybara, p. 17 (4)—Young man from Emond's Field. He is ta'veren. Byar believes it was Perrin who betrayed Bornhald's legion to the Seanchan. Perrin is a large man, and very cautious—he found it was easy to forget how big he was and really hurt other children when he was young, so he is careful not to act too quickly. He discovered that he can talk to wolves while he and Egwene were separated from the rest of the group between Aridhol and Caemlyn, when he encountered Elyas Machera. Elyas helped him learn about his ability, but not how to keep from losing his human side in the process. The wolves refer to him as “Young Bull.” He carries a curved battle ax and recently acquired a blacksmith's hammer which he sometimes carries in place of the ax. Perrin also possesses the ability to enter what he calls the “Wolf Dream,” which is actually Tel'aran'rhiod, the World of Dreams. In the Wolf Dream, Perrin can communicate with all wolves, living or dead. See also Bashere, Faile; Bashere, Zarine; Machera, Elyas; Noam; Young Bull.
  14. Mazrim Taim, p. 18 (5)—False Dragon from Saldaea. He can channel the One Power, and is of considerable strength. At last report, Aes Sedai were on their way to gentle him. He was captured by a mob after a blinding flash knocked him senseless at the moment Rand declared himself as the true Dragon Reborn. See also Dragon Reborn.
  15. Jaichim Carridin, p. 18 (5)—Inquisitor of the Hand of the Light; a Questioner. This band is much like the Spanish Inquisition, using torture to extract what it already knows to be the truth from its subjects. This position is extremely ironic, considering the fact that the chief role of the Questioners is to find Darkfriends—Carridin himself is a Darkfriend, with orders to kill Rand al'Thor whatever the cost. If he fails, one member of his family will be killed by a Myrddraal every month until Rand lies dead.
  16. Artur Hawkwing, p. 20 (7)—Name by which Artur Paendrag Tanreall was known during his conquest of the world. See Paendrag Tanreall, Artur.
  17. Ordeith, p. 25 (11)—Pedron Niall's foremost servant; he also serves as his advisor. He is a bony man with a “huge beak of a nose.” He is the only person (besides Niall himself) who knows of a secret passage into Niall's chamber, which Niall suspects he uses for eavesdropping. Ordeith is actually a fake name—the man he really is is more dangerous than any other man alive. The name “Ordeith” means “Wormwood” in the Old Tongue.
  18. Rand al'Thor, p. 26 (11)—Young man from Emond's Field. It is his picture that appears in the drawings that Niall receives. These drawings depicted the battle over the skies of Falme, in which Rand battled Ba'alzamon. Rand is probably the most strongly ta'veren individual who ever lived, with the possible exception of Lews Therin Telamon. Rand can channel the One Power with incredible strength, and is destined to fight the Dark One in the last battle—he is the Dragon Reborn. Rand is not convinced of his destiny, and plans to “test” it by going to Tear to see if he can take Callandor, the Sword That is Not a Sword, the Sword That Cannot Be Touched. See also Dragon Reborn; He Who Comes With the Dawn; Telamon, Lews Therin.
  19. Matrim (Mat) Cauthon, p. 26 (12)—Young man from Emond's Field. He is ta'veren, and has considerable luck with random events, such as dice games. He went to Tar Valon to be separated from the dagger he carries, a dagger tainted with the evil of Shadar Logoth. See also al'Thor, Rand; Aybara, Perrin; Cauthon, Abell.
  20. Wormwood, p. 27 (12)—Name Pedron Niall calls Ordeith to spite him. It is the literal meaning of the name “Ordeith.” See Ordeith.
  21. Sharbon, p. 28 (13)—Body servant of Jaichim Carridin. See also Carridin, Jaichim.
  22. Great Lord of the Dark, p. 28 (13)—Name used by Darkfriends for the Dark One. They claim that using his true name would be blasphemy. See Shai'tan.

    Chapter 1: Waiting

    Ravens icon
  23. Haral Luhhan, p. 32 (18)—Blacksmith of Emond's Field. He was Perrin Aybara's mentor at the forge. He is a very large, well-built man, perfect for striking at the forge. See also Aybara, Perrin; Luhhan, Alsbet.
  24. Stepper, p. 32 (18)—Perrin's horse, a dun stallion with quick feet. See also Aybara, Perrin.
  25. Moiraine Damodred, p. 32 (18)—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. From even before she became a full sister, she dedicated her life to finding the Dragon Reborn. She was a good friend of Siuan Sanche when she was in training. Moiraine was able to track the whereabouts of the Dragon Reborn to a small village in western Andor, Emond's field, where she narrowed the list of candidates to three young men, all of whom were ta'veren, who were born within days of each other. She guided these three away from Emond's Field, until an encounter at the Eye of the World revealed which of the three was truly the one: Rand al'Thor, who she found was actually born near Tar Valon on the slopes of Dragonmount and brought to Emond's Field by his adoptive father, Tam. Moiraine bears much importance in the White Tower, and is involved in actions which many of her fellow sisters would think to be treason, actions she would most likely be stilled for if their full extent were known. These sisters do not understand just how important the Dragon Reborn actually is. See also Mandragoran, Lan; Sanche, Siuan.
  26. Masema Dagar, p. 34 (19)—Shienaran soldier who accompanies Perrin on his missions to find Moiraine's messengers. He has a triangular scar on his face.
  27. Ragan, p. 34 (20)—Youngest of the Shienarans who accompany Perrin on his missions to find Moiraine's messengers.
  28. Heartsbane, p. 34 (20)—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  29. Soulsbane, p. 34 (20)—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  30. Heartfang, p. 34 (20)—Alternative name for the Dark One. The wolves use it for Ba'alzamon (i.e., Ishamael), who they believe is the Dark One as well. See Shai'tan.
  31. Lord of the Grave, p. 34 (20)—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  32. Lord of the Twilight, p. 34 (20)—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  33. Father of Lies, p. 34 (20)—Alternative name for the Dark One. See Shai'tan.
  34. Uno Nomesta, p. 35 (20)—Shienaran soldier, chief among those with Perrin. He is missing his left eye and has a long scar down the left side of his face. He has a very foul tongue, a habit of which Moiraine is trying to break him of. He wears his hair in standard Shienaran warrior style: shaved head except for a topknot.
  35. Leya, p. 38 (22)—A Tinker, a Tuatha'an, one of the Traveling People, who meets Perrin, Uno, Masema, Ragan, and the rest of their party with urgent news for Moiraine. She is killed in the battle with the Trollocs by a Myrddraal.

    Chapter 2: Saidin

    Dragon's Fang icon
  36. al'Lan Mandragoran, p. 42 (26)—Uncrowned king of Malkier, a nation now swallowed by the Great Blight. For years, he fought a one-man war against the Shadow in the Blight, until being bonded as a Warder by Moiraine. Lan is one of the best Warders, but he is very hard and stubborn, and is thus hard for Aes Sedai to deal with. He keeps a stone countenance, never revealing his true feelings to anyone—although sometimes he cannot hide his feelings for Nynaeve. See also al'Meara, Nynaeve; Damodred, Moiraine.
  37. Piesa, p. 43 (27)—The horse who carries Leya to meet Moiraine. She is not used to the rough terrain they had to cover, but she managed.
  38. Elmindreda (Min) Farshaw, p. 43 (27)—Young woman from Baerlon. She dresses in men's clothing, a habit she picked up while assisting her father in his mine. She has dark eyes and dark hair. She has a special talent, that of seeing images or auras around people that predict their futures. Min does not think the ability is all that great, since her viewings often forecast death, pain, or other unpleasant circumstances for those they represent. One of her viewings surprised her: she is destined to fall in love with Rand al'Thor, but is also destined to “share” him with two other women. See also al'Thor, Rand.
  39. Masuto, p. 44 (28)—Shienaran soldier. He gets the wrong idea about Min and Perrin when he sees them talking by the fire.
  40. Loial, p. 46 (29)—Ogier from Stedding Shangtai, son of Arent son of Halan. He is young for an Ogier at ninety, which for an Ogier is not even old enough to be outside the stedding alone without permission of the Elders. He is fond of books, and is rarely seen without one.
  41. Nynaeve al'Meara, p. 50 (33)—Young woman from Emond's Field. She is seven years older than Egwene. She was the Wisdom before leaving home. She was appointed the Wisdom at a very young age, mostly as a result of being able to “listen to the wind” and because of her ability to heal people. She did not know it at the time, but she now knows that these abilities are manifestations of her ability to touch saidar, the female half of the True Source. She has considerable potential, more than any Aes Sedai in recent times, possibly since the Age of Legends, but that potential is blocked—Nynaeve had to learn control of the Power by herself, without Aes Sedai guidance, and to protect herself created a block to her channeling which only comes down when she is angry or using her medicines. See also Mandragoran, Lan.
  42. Egwene al'Vere, p. 50 (33)—Young woman from Emond's Field. She has the ability to channel the One Power inborn, as did her Wisdom Nynaeve, and Moiraine took her along to Tar Valon so she could learn some control over it. This probably saved her life, since three out of four women who have to learn the way Nynaeve did do not survive. Egwene has long dark hair and dark eyes. It was generally expected that she would marry Rand al'Thor, but the two ended up loving each other more as siblings—besides the fact that Rand is the Dragon Reborn, a fact which would impede a lot of the progress in their lives. She is a good friend of Elayne, the Daughter-Heir of Andor. See also al'Meara, Nynaeve; al'Vere, Brandelwyn; al'Vere, Marin; Nedeal, Corianin; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Gawyn.
  43. Ba'alzamon, p. 52 (34)—In the Trolloc Tongue, “Heart of the Dark.” It is believed to be the Trolloc name for the Dark One. His real identity is one of the Forsaken, Ishamael. See Ishamael; Shai'tan.

    Chapter 3: News From the Plain

    Wheel of Time icon

    Chapter 4: Shadows Sleeping

    Wolf icon

    Chapter 5: Nightmares Walking

    Trollocs icon
  44. Young Bull, p. 77 (54)—Name that the wolves use to refer to Perrin. See Aybara, Perrin.
  45. Morning Mist, p. 79 (56)—One of the wolves. She is the sole survivor of the pack which attacked the last “Neverborn” when they attacked the camp where Rand, Perrin, Moiraine, Lan, Min, and the Shienarans were staying.
  46. Elyas Machera, p. 83 (59)—A man, once a Warder, who can talk to wolves. He helped Perrin discover his ability when he and Egwene were separated from the rest of their group and chanced upon his campsite. He lives in company of wolves all the time, and has the same yellow color to his eyes that Perrin has. He taught Perrin that he can communicate with wolves, but he did not tell him how to keep from losing touch with the human inside him. See also Aybara, Perrin; Noam.

    Chapter 6: The Hunt Begins

    Wheel of Time icon
  47. Lanfear, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. Unlike the rest of the Forsaken, whose names were chosen for them by those they betrayed, Lanfear chose her name herself, which means “Daughter of the Night” in the Old Tongue. Besides her name, the only thing known about her is that during the Age of Legends, before Lews Therin Telamon met Ilyena, she was his lover. She believes that Lews Therin's soul is hers, no matter whose body it now inhabits. See also Selene.
  48. Sammael, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. His name means “Destroyer of Hope” in the Old Tongue. See also Brend.
  49. Asmodean, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. He was an accomplished artist and musician during the Age of Legends, but was never the best around. It was this feeling of inadequacy that caused him to forsake the Light.
  50. Be'lal, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. He has taken up residence in Tear after being released from the Bore, convincing the High Lords of Tear to raise him up as a Lord of the Land, High Lord Samon. See also Samon.
  51. Rahvin, p. 91 (66)—One of the Forsaken. Note: his name is actually spelled incorrectly on page 91, that is “Ravhin” instead of “Rahvin.” Oh, well. See also Gaebril.
  52. Ishamael, p. 91 (66)—Most powerful of the Forsaken. His name means “Betrayer of Hope.” He is known by another name among the Trollocs, as well as among Darkfriends: Ba'alzamon, “Heart of the Dark.” Most people believe that Ba'alzamon is the Dark One, and Ishamael seems to have no problem with them thinking this. See also Ba'alzamon; Shai'tan.
  53. Arent, p. 93 (68)—Ogier of Stedding Shangtai, father of Loial and son of Halan. See also Halan; Loial.
  54. Halan, p. 93 (68)—Ogier of Stedding Shangtai, father of Arent and grandfather of Loial.
  55. Amyrlin Seat, p. 96 (71)—Chief position among the Aes Sedai. She is elected unanimously by the Hall of the Tower, and is considered to be of all Ajahs and at the same time of none. The office carries considerable influence; kings and queens, even if they hate Aes Sedai, will come if the Amyrlin calls them. The office is currently held by Siuan Sanche, raised from the Blue Ajah. See also Sanche, Siuan.

    Chapter 7: The Way Out of the Mountains

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  56. Mandarb, p. 101 (75)—The black stallion that Lan rides. Zarine tries to assume this name since it means “Blade,” and she thinks it a proper name for a Hunter of the Horn. She decided against it when Perrin told her that Lan's horse was named Mandarb. See Bashere, Faile; Bashere, Zarine.
  57. Aldieb, p. 101 (76)—The white mare that Moiraine rides. Her name means “West Wind” in the Old Tongue. See also Damodred, Moiraine.
  58. Myrelle Berengari, p. 102 (76)—Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah. Moiraine has arranged to pass Lan's bond to her in the event Moiraine dies before Lan does. Moiraine jokingly explains that she is someone who Lan must deliver a package to for safekeeping. Lan knows that he is the parcel, but does not know that the intended recipient is someone he already loves.... See also Damodred, Moiraine; Mandragoran, Lan.

    Chapter 8: Jarra

    Wolf icon
  59. Harilin, p. 108 (81)—Person after which Harilin's Leap, an inn in Jarra, is named.
  60. Harod, p. 108 (81)—Innkeeper of Harilin's Leap, an inn in Jarra. He keeps a good house, according to Simion.
  61. Simion, p. 108 (81)—Chinless groundskeeper of Harilin's Leap, an inn in Jarra. He reports to Moiraine that there have been “a lifetime of weddings” in the two days prior to their arrival. These were probably due to the presence of Rand al'Thor, who is strongly ta'veren. He also asks Moiraine to help his brother Noam, who is sick. See also Noam.
  62. Jorath, p. 108 (81)—Old widow from Jarra who marries Banas when Rand comes through Jarra. Like her new husband, she once swore that she would never marry again. See also Banas.
  63. Banas, p. 108 (81)—Old widower from Jarra who marries Jorath when Rand comes through Jarra. Like his new wife, he once swore that he would never marry again. See also Jorath.
  64. Rilith, p. 108 (81)—Daughter of the weaver of Jarra. She precipitated the series of marriages by asking Jon, the blacksmith, to marry her, despite the fact that she is young enough to be his daughter. She was probably influenced by the presence of Rand and his ta'veren quality pulling at the Pattern. See also Jon.
  65. Jon, p. 108 (81)—Blacksmith of Jarra. He married Rilith, precipitating a wave of marriages throughout Jarra. He is old enough to be her father. See also Rilith.
  66. Nico, p. 109 (82)—Stablehand in Harilin's Leap, an inn in Jarra.
  67. Patrim, p. 109 (82)—Stablehand in Harilin's Leap, an inn in Jarra.
  68. Noam, p. 112 (85)—Man from Jarra; Simion's brother. He is similar build to Perrin, and has the same ability to talk to wolves. Unlike Perrin and Elyas, Noam has lost any sense that he was ever human. See also Aybara, Perrin; Machera, Elyas; Simion.
  69. Mother Roon, p. 113 (85)—Wisdom-like person in Jarra. She was unable to offer any kind of help for Noam. See also Noam.

    Chapter 9: Wolf Dreams

    Dragon's Fang icon
  70. Hopper, p. 125 (95)—One of the wolves. Hopper died, at least in the world of the flesh, but his spirit lives on in Tel'aran'rhiod, the World of Dreams.

    Chapter 10: Secrets

    Children of the Light icon
  71. Anaiya, p. 131 (99)—Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. She is the one who “tests” Egwene to see if she is a Dreamer. She is described as “motherly.”
  72. Galadedrid (Galad) Damodred, p. 131 (100)—A young man from Caemlyn, son of Taringail Damodred and his first wife, Tigraine, and half-brother to Elayne and Gawyn. He is studying with the Warders in the White Tower, and is their star pupil. He is stunningly handsome, and has a crush on Egwene. See also al'Vere, Egwene; Damodred, Taringail; Damodred, Tigraine; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Gawyn; Trakand, Morgase.
  73. Bela, p. 131 (100)—Egwene's shaggy mare. She originally belonged to Tam al'Thor, but Rand put her into use as Egwene's transportation.
  74. Verin Mathwin, p. 133 (102)—Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She accompanies Nynaeve, Egwene, Elayne, Hurin, and Mat from Falme to Tar Valon. One of only three Aes Sedai to know that the Dragon Reborn lives.
  75. Elayne Trakand, p. 133 (102)—Novice in the White Tower. She is the Daughter-Heir of Andor, daughter of Queen Morgase, sister to Gawyn, and half-sister to Galad. She lives next door to Egwene al'Vere; the two are good friends. See also al'Thor, Rand; al'Vere, Egwene; Damodred, Galadedrid; Daughter-Heir (of Andor); Farshaw, Elmindreda; Trakand, Gawyn; Trakand, Morgase.
  76. Hurin, p. 134 (102)—Thief-taker for the king of Shienar. He is lean, and has long hair. He is also a “sniffer”—one who can “smell” evil, even where it was done in the past.
  77. Morgase Trakand, p. 136 (104)—By the Grace of the Light, Queen of Andor, Defender of the Realm, Protector of the People, High Seat of House Trakand. Mother to Elayne and Gawyn. She was trained in the White Tower, as all Queens of Andor have, but was too weak in the One Power to do anything worthwhile with the knowledge she learned there. See also a'Roihan, Elaida do Avriny; Damodred, Galadedrid; Damodred, Taringail; Damodred, Tigraine; Trakand, Elayne; Trakand, Gawyn.
  78. Sheriam Bayanar, p. 136 (104)—Mistress of Novices in the White Tower. She is an Aes Sedai of the Blue Ajah. Trips to her study are feared (with reason) by novices and Accepted alike.
  79. Mistress of Novices, p. 136 (104)—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 (or both). The current Mistress of Novices is Sheriam Bayanar of the Blue Ajah. See also Bayanar, Sheriam.
  80. Daughter-Heir (of Andor), p. 137 (107)—By Andoran tradition, the oldest daughter of the Queen succeeds her on the Lion Throne. No man is allowed to be King, at least not as more than a figurehead. The previous Daughter-Heir, Tigraine, disappeared over twenty years ago; the current Daughter-Heir is Elayne Trakand. It is also traditional for the Daughter-Heir and her oldest brother (who will become First Prince of the Sword when she becomes Queen) to train in Tar Valon, but Elayne is the first Daughter Heir, indeed, the first ruler of any kind in recent memory, to actually have enough ability to channel that she will become Aes Sedai. See also Damodred, Tigraine; Trakand, Elayne.

    Chapter 11: Tar Valon

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  81. King Easar Togita, p. 151 (116)—King of Shienar. His palace is in Fal Moran.
  82. Lord Agelmar Jagad, p. 151 (116)—Lord of Fal Dara, and commander of Shienar's army. He is one of the best field commanders alive.
  83. Faolain Orande, p. 155 (119)—Dark, curly-haired Accepted. She escorts Nynaeve, Egwene, and Elayne to their rooms after they come back from Falme. She is only slightly older than Nynaeve. She has a dislike for wilders. Egwene thinks it very likely that Faolain will choose the Red Ajah.
  84. Theodrin Dabei, p. 155 (120)—Accepted with a willowy neck and coppery skin. She moves gracefully. She was a wilder, one who learned to channel by herself before coming to the Tower. Like Nynaeve, Theodrin had a block that inhibited her channelling for a time. She learned how to knock hers down, and plans to help Nynaeve do the same.

    Chapter 12: The Amyrlin Seat

    Flame of Tar Valon icon
  85. Siuan Sanche, p. 157 (121)—Watcher of the Seals, the Flame of Tar Valon, the Amyrlin Seat. She has blue eyes. She is quite fond of fish analogies, a result of being raised on a fishing boat in Tear. Siuan is one of only three Aes Sedai that knows that Rand al'Thor is the Reborn",Dragon Reborn. After Liandrin and the other twelve sisters that went with her left the Tower, Siuan has been afraid to trust anyone except Egwene, Nynaeve, Elayne, Moiraine, and Verin, thinking that anyone else, possibly including Leane, her Keeper of the Chronicles, could be Black Ajah without her knowing. This paranoia is probably the safest course, but causes an increased level of tension in the Tower. See also Amyrlin Seat; Damodred, Moiraine; Sharif, Leane.
  86. Leane Sharif, p. 158 (122)—Keeper of the Chronicles under Siuan Sanche. She was raised from the Blue Ajah, the same Ajah as Siuan. She has short, dark hair, copper-colored skin, and is as tall as most men. She grew up in Arad Doman. See also Keeper of the Chronicles.
  87. Keeper of the Chronicles, p. 158 (122)—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 is currenlty held by Leane Sharif of the Blue Ajah. In theory, the Keeper of the Chronicles serves the Amyrlin Seat and speaks for the Amyrlin Seat; she is all but separate from her Ajah, although less so than the Amyrlin Seat herself. See also Nyram, Beldeine; Sharif, Leane.

    Chapter 13: Punishment

  107. Guaire Amalasan, p. 263 (208)—Man who proclaimed himself to be the Dragon Reborn about a thousand years ago. He could channel quite strongly.

  119. Gareth Bryne, p. 320 (255)—Captain of the Guards and First Prince of the Sword under Queen Morgase.

She was dissapointed to find out that Mat had already blown it, and was shocked to find that Rand is the Dragon Reborn.

The tree had been a gift from the Aiel in gratitude for the hospitality the people of Cairhien had displayed to them in the past. It is unknown whether Laman knew of the significance of Avendoraldera, or of the reason the Aiel allowed the people of his kingdom to cross the Waste.

Comar is killed by Mat in Tear. See also Gaebril.

    Chapter 55: What is Written in Prophecy

    Dragon icon
  225. Shai'tan, p. 666 (537)—True name for the Dark One. Saying his true name draws his attention, so many euphemisms for him have been developed, including Heartfang, Leafblighter, Lord of the Grave, Heartsbane, Soulsbane, Lord of the Twilight, and Father of Lies. He is considered to be the complete antithesis of the Creator, and the source of all evil. He has been bound in a prison the Creator made for him since the beginning of time. This prison was bored into during the Age of Legends, and was temporarily re-sealed by Lews Therin Telamon and the Hundred Companions. Those seals are now growing weak (three have broken already), and the Dark One's influence is spreading. Editor's Note: I thought it was appropriate that he was mentioned for the first time on page 666 of the paperback edition.... See also Ba'alzamon; Creator, The.
