! __Moiraine__ POV

The next morning, %%blue [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred]%%, %%amyrlin [Siuan|Siuan Sanche]%%, %%blue [Leane|Leane Sharif]%% and %%brown [Verin|Verin Mathwin]%% use the [ivory figurine] %%ot [angreal|Angreal]%% to partially [Heal|Weaves] [Mat|Matrim Cauthon].[1] He cannot be completely [Healed|Weaves] without the [Ruby Dagger]. [Leane|Leane Sharif] leaves when [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] is carried out to the infirmary. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] has only months to live unless the [ruby dagger|Ruby Dagger] is recovered. [Agelmar|Agelmar Jagad] is sending men to recover the [Horn|Horn of Valere]. They will find the [ruby dagger|Ruby Dagger] as well. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] will have to go with them since he is the only one who can safely carry it. They all wonder why [Fain|Padan Fain] is so important. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] says little is known about [Dark Prophecy]. She reads the [Dark Prophecy]:[2]

"[Daughter of the Night|Lanfear], she walks again.\\
The ancient war, she yet fights.\\
Her new lover she seeks, who shall serve her and die, yet serve still.\\
Who shall stand against her coming?\\
The [Shining Walls|Tar Valon] shall kneel.\\
Blood feeds blood.\\
Blood calls blood.\\
Blood is, and blood was, and blood shall ever be.

The man who [channels|True Source] stands alone.\\
He gives his friends for sacrifice.\\
Two roads before him, one to death beyond dying, one to life eternal.\\
Which will he choose? Which will he choose?\\
What hand shelters? What hand slays?\\

[Luc|Luc Mantear] came to the [Mountains of Dhoom].\\
[Isam|Isam Mandragoran] waited in the high passes.\\
The hunt is now begun. The Shadow's hounds now course, and kill.\\
One did live, and one did die, but both are.[3]\\
The Time of Change has come.\\

The [Watchers|Falme] wait on [Toman's Head|Toman Head].\\
The seed of the [Hammer|Artur Hawkwing] burns the ancient tree.\\
Death shall sow, and summer burn, before the [Great Lord|ShaiTan] comes.\\
Death shall reap, and bodies fail, before the [Great Lord|ShaiTan] comes.\\
Again the seed slays ancient wrong, before the [Great Lord|ShaiTan] comes.\\
Now the [Great Lord|ShaiTan] comes.\\

[Verin|Verin Mathwin] says [Serafelle] is the only other one who has seen it. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] asks [Verin|Verin Mathwin] what she makes of it. [Lanfear] means [Daughter of the Night|Lanfear] in the [Old Tongue]. [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] thinks all the [Forsaken] are still bound.[4] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] thinks she was the most powerful after [Ishamael]. She was [Lews Therin|Lews Therin Telamon]'s lover before [Ilyena|Ilyena Therin Moerelle]. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] says Lord [Luc|Luc Mantear] was the brother of [Tigraine|Tigraine Mantear], but she does not know [Isam|Isam Mandragoran]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] knows [Isam|Isam Mandragoran] was son of [Breyan|Breyan Mandragoran] and [Lain|Lain Mandragoran]; he was [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran]'s cousin. She must keep this from [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran]. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] says the [Do Miere A'vron|Falme] or [Watchers Over the Waves|Falme] are a community in [Falme] on [Toman Head] who believe [Artur Hawkwing]'s army will return. [Hawkwing|Artur Hawkwing] was also known as the [Hammer of the Light|Artur Hawkwing]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] notes that there are rumors of war on [Toman Head]. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] notes that the [Sea Folk] refuse to cross the [Aryth Ocean]. She has heard one reference to "lands under the Shadow, beyond the setting sun, beyond the [Aryth Ocean], where the [Armies of the Night|Seanchan (People)] reign." About the "ancient tree," the banner of [Almoth] was the [Tree of Life|Avendesora], [Tarabon] call themselves the Tree of Man and [Domani|Arad Doman] claim descent from those who made the [Tree of Life|Avendesora]. The Time of Change refers to the end of an Age.[5] Finally, [Verin|Verin Mathwin] notes that the man who [channels|True Source] must be one of the three boys and is the true [Dragon Reborn|Rand alThor]! [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] are so shocked they seize the [One Power] confirming to [Verin|Verin Mathwin] that she is right. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] says [Serafelle] only cares for books and does not know. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] had the cooks leave out treats for [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] and [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] when they were [novices]. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] had her first clue to all this twenty years ago.[6]

! __Perrin__ POV

[Perrin|Perrin Aybara] sneaks into the infirmary to visit [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] who is still sleeping. He was alone in one of the gardens last night so [Egwene|Egwene alVere] and [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] never found him. Lady [Timora], one of [Amalisa|Amalisa Jagad]'s attendants, found him and reported him to [Liandrin]. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] wakes briefly and remembers nothing of the dungeon. [Leane|Leane Sharif] enters. She tells [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] to leave, then stops him to check his eyes and [Delves|Weave] him. He lifts her aside and leaves.

! __Rand__ POV

[Rand|Rand alThor] is in his room. He did not sleep all night. He started to leave three times, but stayed because he has to find out about himself. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] enters. He is still mad at [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Rand|Rand alThor] tries to make conversation saying [Leane|Leane Sharif] sounds like Master [Thane|Jon Thane] the way she gives orders. They realize [Liandrin] was looking for both of them. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] is still angry and leaves. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] pounds on the door and enters telling [Rand|Rand alThor] he is summoned to the [Amyrlin|Aes Sedai]. He preps [Rand|Rand alThor] to act like a [Warder|Warder] and a [Borderlands] lord. [Rand|Rand alThor] asks, but [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] does not really explain why he is helping [Rand|Rand alThor].[7] They leave to meet the [Amyrlin|Aes Sedai].

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] There are two [Yellow Ajah] sisters at [Fal Dara]. Why did they not participate in the [Healing|Weaves]?\\
[#2] We learn more about [Dark Prophecy] in [ToM,Ch4]. And there is the open question of whether or not this was really a [Foretelling|Weaves] or something made up for the occasion.\\
[#3] [Luc|Luc Mantear] and [Isam|Isam Mandragoran] are now two facets of the same being also known as [Slayer|Isam Mandragoran]. ([TSR,Ch28] - [TSR,Ch33], [WH,Ch22])\\
[#4] Why is [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] not telling her about [Aginor] and [Balthamel]?\\
[#5] [Bair] also refers to the Time of Change at [Chaendaer]. ([TSR,Ch23])\\
[#6] We do not know what the clue is, but we get a hint as to where it came from in [TGS,Ch39].\\
[#7] When [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] asks [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] the same thing he says it was probably a %%ot [ta'veren|Wheel of Time]%% effect, but [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] suspects it was because of [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara]. ([TGH,Ch22])\\
