Zaired Elbar was a Seanchan officer in Suroth's service and a Darkfriend. He was tall with a dark face and a hooked nose (TGH, Ch. 40).


  • He accompanied Suroth when they captured Egwene and Min. The latter cut Elbar when he wanted to seize her and he tried to behead her then (TGH, Ch. 40).
  • After the Seanchan took Amador, he escorted Morgase to the High Lady Suroth. When he forced Morgase to prostrate herself before Suroth, Suroth had him report himself for punishment. Morgase notes, however, that the whole action was planned beforehand (ACoS, Ch. 26).
  • He died during the fighting against the Band and Musenge brought his head to Karede. He was known to be loyal only to Suroth, so she was made da'covale by Tuon for the order to have her killed (KoD, Epilogue).


"It is well known that Zaired Elbar was Suroth's man completely. He did nothing that she did not order." (Tuon to the assembled Blood; Knife of Dreams, Epilogue)
