Rahien Demain is the son of Ines Demain, a noblewoman from Chachin, Kandor. His father, name unknown, is dead (NS, Ch. 24).

Ines gave Rahien his name because she saw the sun coming up over Dragonmount when he was born (NS, Ch. 24).


  • Siuan learns that Rahien is not the one, as he was born almost two miles away from Dragonmount, in a farmhouse (NS, Epilogue).



"I found Ines Demain almost right off, but not where I can reach her. She's a new widow, but she did have a son, for sure. Named him Rahien because she saw the dawn come up over Dragonmount. Talk of the streets. Everybody thinks it a fool reason to name a child." (Siuan to Moiraine; New Spring, Chapter 23).

"Anyway, we can go whenever you're ready. Rahien was born in a farmhouse almost two miles from Dragonmount. Merean hasn't been near him, as of this morning. I don't suppose she'll harm him on suspicion even if she is Black." (Siuan to Moiraine; New Spring, Epilogue).
