Mutch is a wiry Andoran stableman who works at The Stag and Lion inn in Baerlon (TEotW, Ch. 13).

Rand is suspicious of Mutch and thinks he will tell the first person to ask when Rand and company left the inn and where they are headed (TEotW, Ch. 17).


  • When Moiraine's group enter the stableyard of the Stag and Lion, Mutch shouts at them to go around the front. Master Fitch then appears and tells him it is alright, because they are guests he expected. He orders Mutch to take good care of their horses, which the stableman sullenly does along with two of his helpers (TEotW, Ch. 13).
  • Rand encounters Mutch when he goes outside to see Baerlon. He glowers at Rand before disappearing (TEotW, Ch. 15).
  • When Moiraine's party leaves again, Mutch readies their horses, all the while complaining softly about the late hour and having to hurry. He watches them sourly for a while until they are out of sight (TEotW, Ch. 17).


"Rand nodded to Mutch, too, but the stableman gave him a truculent look and went inside. He hoped the rest of the city was more like Sara and less like Mutch." (Rand; The Eye of the World, Chapter 15)

"Mutch would tell the first person who asked him when they had gone and everything else he could think of concerning them. A little distance down the street, he [Rand] looked back. One figure stood, lamp raised high, peering after them. He did not need to see the face to know it was Mutch." (Rand; The Eye of the World, Chapter 17)
