Sakarnen is a powerful sa'angreal in the shape of a golden scepter with an hourglass or gobled affixed atop it. Demandred claims to have bonded it to him. No one can use Power drawn through it against him or they will be burned from the Pattern (AMoL, Ch. 37).
Appearances and Uses
- Demandred appears with it on the Heights and destroys some dragons with it. After hearing that Taim failed to kill Egwene, he offers him Sakarnen to finish the deed (AMoL, Ch. 37).
- Taim uses it against Egwene, but is crystallized with it when she uses the Flame of Tar Valon (AMoL, Ch. 37).
- Desautel finds Sakarnen inside a large crystal (AMoL, Ch. 43).
“'Do not channel through that toward me. I have bonded Sakarnen to me. If you try to use it against me, it will burn you from the Pattern.'
Did Demandred lie? Could a sa'angreal be attuned to a specific person? He did not know. He considered, then lowered Sakarnen, bitter despite the power surging through him.” (Demandred to Taim; A Memory of Light, Chapter 37)
