! __Androl__ POV

[Androl|Androl Genhald] skillfully crafts a leather armguard. He is missing his shears and [Cuellar] is sharpening his belt knife so he weaves a mini-gateway to trim the leather. He is very weak in the [One Power] but he is the best there is at [Traveling|Weaves#t]. [Logain|Logain Ablar] promoted him to Dedicated personally against [Taim|Mazrim Taim]'s wishes. He walks through the [Black Tower] village where the houses would look normal in [New Braem] or [Grafendale]. He hands candies to some children then coaches some [Two Rivers] men building a canal led by [Jaim Torfinn]. [Androl|Androl Genhald] empties himself of feeling[1] as his first sword master [Garfin] taught him. 

[Trost] asks him if he has heard from [Logain|Logain Ablar] who has been gone on a scouting mission for a long time.[2] He left in the night weeks ago taking [Donalo|Donalo Sandomere], [Mezar|Mezar Kurin] and [Welyn|Welyn Kajima] with him. And now there are two groups of [Aes Sedai], one in the [Black Tower] grounds and one camped outside. The shadows start creeping toward him so he releases %%ot [saidin|Said]%%.[3] [Androl|Androl Genhald] walks on through the village which is growing fast. He comes to the practice field and sees [Dedicated|AshaMan] divided into two groups, [Canler], [Emarin], [Arlen Nalaam] and [Jonneth Dowtry] in one and [Taim|Mazrim Taim]'s cronies including [Coteren] in another. [Jonneth Dowtry]'s whole family including his grandfather [Buel|Buel Dowtry] came with him. [Emarin] is a nobleman who arrived one day with [Logain|Logain Ablar].[4] [Androl|Androl Genhald] has traveled widely, even to a [Sea Folk] island [Retash]. [Androl|Androl Genhald] gives the armguard to [Jonneth Dowtry] who gives a brief demonstration of the [Two Rivers] longbow. [Coteren] belittles them and [Androl|Androl Genhald] has to calm the others so they do not get into serious trouble. [Nalaam|Arlen Nalaam] talks gibberish, his symptom of madness. 

[Androl|Androl Genhald] is worried that more and more men are taking personal lessons with the [M'Hael|Mazrim Taim]. [Nensen] and [Kash] became strong very fast and were rapidly promoted to full [Asha'man]. [Canler] says that [Norley], [Evin|Evin Vinchova], [Hardlin] and the [Two Rivers] men are trustworthy but not a one is full [Asha'man]. [Androl|Androl Genhald] is also worried about the [Aes Sedai] bonding them. Full [Asha'man], all of [Taim|Mazrim Taim]'s cronies, are exempt. They are also spreading rumors that [Rand|Rand alThor] has abandoned them. [Emarin] says [Rand|Rand alThor] is not mad. He met [Rand|Rand alThor] just before he came to the [Black Tower].[4] They plan to gather information against [Taim|Mazrim Taim] for [Logain|Logain Ablar] when he returns. They look to [Androl|Androl Genhald] as their leader.

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] Apparently the same as the flame and the void ([TEotW,Ch13]) and %%ot [ko'di]%%. ([NS,Ch16])
\\[#2] Reporting to [Rand|Rand alThor].
\\[#3] The taint madness still affecting [Androl|Androl Genhald].
\\[#4] Most curious! [Cadsuane|Cadsuane Melaidhrin] took [Emarin|emarin] to the [White Tower] to be gentled more than ten years ago. ([CoT,Ch23]) And when would he have met [Rand|Rand alThor]? Or perhaps [Algarin|Algarin Pendaloan] is masquerading as [Emarin|emarin] for some reason?
