ACoS: High Chasaline

Perrin POV#

The wind blows from Braem Wood past relics of Coremanda then past the Tar Valon Road. It is the day after the battle at Dumai's Wells, High Chasaline, the twelfth day of the year. Perrin is at the main camp a mile south of the oasis. He is worried about Faile being in Cairhien. There are about two hundred Shaido prisoners.[1] Between the Aiel, the Wise Ones, the Aes Sedai, the Asha'man, the Cairhienin, and the Mayeners the situation is extremely tense. Perrin realizes he has to report the problem to Rand. Perrin tells Aram that Gaul explained gai'shain and ji'e'toh to him. Carahuin, a Maiden, teases Perrin by sending over naked gai'shain.

Nearly two dozen captive Aes Sedai, guarded by Asha'man, include Nesune Bihara, Erian Boroleos, Katerine Alruddin, Coiren Saeldain, Sarene Nemdahl, Elza Penfell, Janine Pavlara, Beldeine Nyram and Marith Riven.[2] The last three are so young they do not yet look ageless. There are even more Warder under guard.[3] Lord Dobraine leads the Cairhienin. Aram suggests killing the captives! There are three hundred Two Rivers men with Perrin.[4] Two young men, Tod al'Caar and Kenly Maerin, and an oldster, Jondyn Barran, talk about the battle. Sorilea, Edarra and another lean, yellow haired Wise One all glare at the Aes Sedai. Loial comes up and points out how tense everything is. Perrin heads north on Stepper to join Rand.

Notes (Possible Spoilers)#

[#1] One of them is Gharadin. (TPoD,Ch9)
[#2] Irgain Fatamed, Ronaille and Sashalle were stilled and captured. Twenty others were captured including Coiren Saeldain, Sarene Nemdahl, Erian Boroleos, Nesune Bihara, Katerine Alruddin, Elza Penfell, Beldeine Nyram, Nalaene Forrell, Janine Pavlara, Turanna Norill and Marith Riven, Chisaine Nurbaya, Innina Darenhold, Vayelle Kamsa and Fera. Twelve escaped led by Covarla Baldene including Lusonia Cole, Vasha and her Warder Marlesh and Hattori and her Warder Sleete. Three were killed including Amira Moselle and Laigin Arnault. Galina was captured by the Shaido for a total of thirty-nine.
[#3] So there are at least twenty-four Warder held captive. At least six of the captives have no Warder and two of the ten Green sisters in the party have no Warder (Irgain Fatamed, hers were killed, and Beldeine Nyram) so a fair number of the unidentified captives must be Green Ajah with multiple Warder for this to make sense. There could also be Warder of some of the twelve who escaped as only two Warder made it to Tar Valon and then Dorlan. (TGS,Ch13)
[#4] The Two Rivers men include Ban al'Seen, Dannil Lewin, (ACoS,Ch2) Tell Lewin, Rad al'Dai, (ACoS,Ch3) Flann Barstere, Jori Congar, Falton, Aemin, Jerasid (TPoD,Ch9) Hu Marwin, Get Ayliah (WH,Ch2) and Lem al'Dai. (WH,Ch6)
