Points of View: Perrin, Lan


The peace treaty is signed under the condition it would be void if the Seanchan refuse to sign it too and the Aiel are pointed out as the one who should enforce the document. Rand gives Egwene the Seals. The Borderlanders manage to come in time to save Lan and the remnant of his army.

Perrin watches everyone's reactions to Moiraine's presence. She speaks briefly with Rand and Egwene and is hugged by Nynaeve. Moiraine quotes the Prophecy and tells everyone they need to do what Rand wants because only he could fight this battle. It's pointed out that the peace would not exist without the Seanchan signing the document and without a mechanism for punishing those who breach the peace. Rand promises he will made peace with the Seanchan and if not the document would be void. Aviendha objects that the Aiel are not in the treaty and Rand has toh towards them. Aviendha demands her boon - to put the Aiel in the Dragon's Peace. The other Aile confirm she speaks for them. Rand finally agrees to put them in the treaty too when Perrin requires to speak with him and proposes that Aiel should used to enforce the treaty. Rand agrees and offers that solution to the Aiel who accepts eventually. Moiraine asks Rand why would he need to command the armies when he is going to Shayol Ghul. Rand agrees that someone else could lead the armies as long as the others know that there is one Commander. Moiraine addresses Egwene and insists that the Amyrlin should be the one to break the Seals and that the Prophecy requires it to which she reluctantly agrees. Rand gives the Seals to Egwene. The rulers finally sign the document. Rand decides to appoint Elayne to lead the Last Battle. Everyone signs the treaty and Rand declarea he has some tasks to do before heading for Shayol Ghul but he requests help for a friend oh his first.

Lan's Point of View:

Location: Tarwin's Gap

Characters: Lan, Andere, Bulen, Jophil, Kaisel

Lan and his companions are desperately fighting the Shadowspawn. The battle is going bad for the humans and they suffer many casualties. Another raid begins and Lan orders his man slowly pulling out of the pass. Lan is aware they will eventually be overrun. Lan's army charges the Trollocs ready to die. Lan shouts Al Chailidholara Malkier! and hears thousands roaring sound of hoofbeats which makes him turn to look back and see a gateway through which charging men were passing riding under the flag of Arafel. More gateways open and the other Borderlanders appear together with Asha'man. Lan laughs.
