! __Perrin__ POV

[Ingtar|Ingtar Shinowa] and his party are now in [Kinslayer's Dagger|Kinslayers Dagger], still following the [Horn|Horn of Valere]. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] examines [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] two or three times a day as he gets paler. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] once again recites for [Ingtar|Ingtar Shinowa] what the wolves told him. Someone they call [Shadowkiller|Rand alThor] killed the [Trollocs] they found and the [Trollocs] and [Fain|Padan Fain] now follow [Shadowkiller|Rand alThor]. The wolves are in awe of [Shadowkiller|Rand alThor]. [Uno|Uno Nomesta] reports an [Aiel] in the rocks. He steps out and [Masema|Masema Dagar] starts to attack. [Ingtar|Ingtar Shinowa] stops him and the [Aiel] identifies himself as [Urien], a [Red Shield] of the [Two Spires] sept of the [Reyn] [Aiel]. He thinks %%brown [Verin|Verin Mathwin]%% is a [Wise One|Aiel] because she looks young like women who have been to [Rhuidean]. This excites her greatly.[1] [Ingtar|Ingtar Shinowa] says they are hunting [Trollocs]. [Urien] is excited because the return of [Trollocs] is part of [Aiel prophecy|Aiel Prophecies]. He explains the [Three-fold Land|Aiel Waste]: a shaping stone to make them, a testing ground to prove their worth, and a punishment for their sin. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] asks what [Rhuidean] is. [Urien] says clan chiefs and [Wise Ones|Aiel] are marked in [Rhuidean]. It lies in the lands of the [Jenn] [Aiel]. She asks him what he is doing here. He replies that he is seeking someone. There will be signs. He will be marked. He will come from the west, but be of [Aiel] blood. He will go to [Rhuidean] and lead the [Aiel] out of the [Three-fold Land|Aiel Waste]. He will conquer under the old [Aes Sedai] symbol. Using typical [Aes Sedai] sleight of tongue, [Verin|Verin Mathwin] denies knowing anything[2] and [Urien|urien] leaves. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] wonder if it could be [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] mutters to herself, "It must be a part, and yet how? Does the [Wheel of Time] weave threads into the [Pattern|Wheel of Time] of which we know nothing? Or does the [Dark One|ShaiTan] touch the [Pattern|Wheel of Time] again?"[3] Now that they are in [Cairhien|Cairhien (Country)], the [Shienarans|Shienar] remove their armor so as not to appear threatening and ride on.
