! __Perrin__ POV

[Perrin|Perrin Aybara] goes to a meeting with the [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)] mediated by [Tallanvor|Martyn Tallanvor]. He rides [Stepper] in the trees beside a meadow with [Gallenne|Bertain Gallenne], [Berelain|Berelain sur Paendrag], [Annoura|Annoura Larisen], [Jur Grady] and [Gerard Arganda], [Alliandre|Alliandre Maritha Kigarin]'s First Captain. They wait for the [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)] delegation. There are fifty [Winged Guards|Mayene] and fifty [Ghealdanin|Ghealdan] soldiers. [Berelain|Berelain sur Paendrag] is still angry that [Annoura|Annoura Larisen] met with [Masema|Masema Dagar] behind her back. [Jur Grady] is nearby. [Aram] says that the [Prophet|Masema Dagar] thinks the meeting is a trap but [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] is prepared. [Balwer|Sebban Balwer] reported that [Aram] spends a lot of time with [Masema|Masema Dagar]. [Leof Torfinn] carries the Red Wolfhead banner and [Tod al'Caar] carries the Red Eagle of [Manetheren]. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] thinks of [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] and sees a swirl of colors then [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] talking to a small dark woman.[1] The [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)] arrive accompanied by [Tallanvor|Martyn Tallanvor]. There is a %%ot [sul'dam|Seanchan (People)]%% and %%ot [damane|Seanchan (People)]%% with them. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara], [Berelain|Berelain sur Paendrag], [Gallenne|Bertain Gallenne], [Arganda|Gerard Arganda] and twenty soldiers ride into the meadow to meet them. [Tallanvor|Martyn Tallanvor] introduces everyone. The two [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)] leaders are Captain [Bakayar Mishima] and Banner-General [Tylee Khirgan].[2] Noting [Perrin|Perrin Aybara]'s eyes and hammer, [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] cites the [Prophecies of the Dragon|Karaethon Prophecies] about [Tarmon Gai'don|Creator].

* When the Wolf King carries the hammer, thus are the final days known. When the fox marries the raven, and the trumpets of battle are blown.[3]

[Perrin|Perrin Aybara] thinks [Hopper] would laugh at a Wolf King. [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] notes [Berelain|Berelain sur Paendrag]'s surname [Paendrag|Artur Paendrag Tanreall]; she is descended from [Artur Paendrag Tanreall]. [Berelain|Berelain sur Paendrag] claims only [Mayene] but she will defend it proudly. To show the prowess of his men, [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] raises a flat branch into the air. From the woods three hundred paces away [Jondyn Barran] and [Jori Congar] shoot arrows into it. Then [Jur Grady] raises it into the air and flash burns it. The %%ot [damane|Seanchan (People)]%% [Norie] puts out a small grassfire and her %%ot [sul'dam|Seanchan (People)]%% reports that it was an [Asha'man]. [Tod|Tod alCaar] hands [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] the [Manetheren] banner and he offers it to [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] saying he will relinquish all claim of restoring [Manetheren] in [Emond's Field|Emonds Field] and the [Two Rivers] if she helps him free [Faile|Zarine Bashere]. A sulfurous gale suddenly blows through startling everyone.[4] [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] sends her soldiers back and [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] has [Dannil|Dannil Lewin] and [Tell|Tell Lewin] do the same. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] tells [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] that [Sevanna] and the [Shaido] have three to four hundred [channeling|True Source] [Wise Ones|Aiel]. [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] does not have the resources to face that many.[5] She will have to disturb the [Daughter of the Nine Moons|Tuon] and possibly apologize to the [Empress]. [Mishima|Bakayar Mishima] recalls the slaughter at [Semalaren|Seanchan (Country)] when there were four hundred %%ot [damane|Seanchan (People)]%% on each side. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] heard that the [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)] have something that knocks out [channelers|True Source].[6] He plans to put that in the [Shaido] water supply. [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] says the manufactory is almost to [Tarabon] and she does not have the clout to get enough. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] says they can [Travel|Weaves#t] and shows [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] and [Mishima|Bakayar Mishima] the order from High Lady [Suroth|Suroth Sabelle Meldarath].[7] [Tylee|Tylee Khirgan] is thoroughly impressed and wants to know who [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] really is. He is a man who wants his wife back and will deal with the [Dark One|ShaiTan] to get her. He and the [Seanchan|Seanchan (People)] have a deal.
