When Battle Begins

Chapter Icon: a'dam

Points of View: Egwene, Romanda, Lelaine, Siuan, Nynaeve, Elayne


Egwene finds out about Moghedien being held captive by Nynaeve and Elayne. The chapter shows the reactions of the various factions in the Rebel Tower towards Egwene's actions.


Egwene's Point of View:

Location: Salidar

Characters: Egwene, Elayne, Nynaeve, Moghedien

Nynaeve and Elayne are still in Egwene's office. It is now that Nynaeve finally confesses to Egwene that she has captured Moghedien, and how most of Nynaeve and Elayne's discoveries have come from her. Shocked, Egwene tells them to bring Moghedien to her.

While they wait, Egwene begins to speak of her plan for the Aiel to be connected to the White Tower, which then expands into all women who can channel being connected to the Tower.

Nynaeve soon returns with an older, worn looking woman, introducing her as Marigan. At first, Egwene does not realize who "Marigan" is, but then she notices the necklace of the a'dam. Nynaeve orders Marigan to drop the disguise, and Egwene is faced with the real Moghedien. She tells Nynaeve to make her resume the disguise of Marigan, and then Nynaeve hands the bracelet over to Egwene, who informs Moghedien that she will not be as gentle as Nynaeve and Elayne have been. "Set just one foot wrong with me, and I'll make you beg for death."

Egwene begins to question Moghedien. Her first question concerns using saidar to make a gateway. Egwene then creates a gateway, shocking Moghedien. Egwene tells Moghedien never to be too sure that she does not already know the answer to what she asks.

Egwene sends Moghedien away. Siuan enters the room, and Nynaeve and Elayne leave. Once they are alone, Egwene tells Siuan that she needs Siuan to teach her how to be Amyrlin.

Romanda's Point of View:

Location: Salidar

Characters: Romanda

The point of view switches to Romanda. She and her supporters are holding a meeting, and Romanda wonders where Delana is.

Lelaine's Point of View:

Location: Salidar

Characters: Lelaine

The point of view switches to Lelaine, who is halfway across Salidar, and holding her own meeting. She also wonders where Delana is.

Delana's Point of View:

Location: Salidar

Characters: Delana, Halima

The point of view switches to Delana, who is speaking with Halima/Aran'gar. Delana tries to make her see that she cannot support every faction, because she will soon be caught. Halima/Aran'gar responds that everyone needs to take risks. She tells Delana that she will continue pressing for Logain to be gentled. Delana thinks about killing Halima/Aran'gar, but knows that she would probably be the one to die instead.

Siuan's Point of View:

Location: Salidar

Characters: Siuan, Lelaine

The point of view switches to Siuan, who is with Lelaine. Siuan complains about how Egwene never listens, while inwardly thinking that Egwene will be an Amyrlin to make thrones tremble.

Nynaeve's Point of View:

Location: Salidar

Characters: Nynaeve, Romanda

The point of view switches to Nynaeve, who is with Romanda, asking what she is to do about her block. Romanda replies, "You weren't so eager earlier. I heard that you told Dagdara you were Aes Sedai too and she could find a lake and douse her head." Nynaeve replies that maybe she has just realized that being Aes Sedai still doesn't mean she can channel without being angry, and Romanda agrees to continue working to break Nynaeve's block.

Elayne's Point of View:

Location: Salidar

Characters: Elayne, Sheriam

The point of view switches to Elayne, who is giving Sheriam one of the ter'angreal rings. Elayne then tells Sheriam that she thinks Egwene is worried, and that she was wondering if Sheriam could help her. Elayne speaks of Romanda and Lelaine, and how she thinks that Egwene is a little afraid of them, and Sheriam says that she will do what she can.

Egwene's Point of View:

Location: Salidar

Characters: Egwene

The point of view switches back to Egwene, who is resting in her tub. She thinks to herself that the Wise Ones would be proud of her.
