“His coming shall be like the sharp edge of the plow, turning our lives in furrows from out of the places where we lie in our silence.”
Pedron Niall listens to Byar's report on the battle at Falme – the death of Geofram Bornhald, and a thousand Whitecloaks. Byar is convinced that the Darkfriend Perrin is responsible for their betrayal. We believe he may be under compulsion and go over our evidence. We hear reports of the Seafolk searching for their Coramoor, the Ogier calling meetings between the Stedding, and the rise and fall of several false Dragons. Carridin has also returned from the west, giving some similar reports. Niall orders Carridin to keep Rand alive, explains his plan to use the 'False Dragon', and assures Carridin that if he or the Dragon dies during this risky plan, so will Carridin. When Carridin returns to his quarters, there is a Fade waiting for him. This Fade was confirmed by RJ to be an early version of Shaidar Haran. Shaidar Haran orders Carridin to kill Rand, saying each month that the Dragon remains alive, one of Carridin's family members will die.
