    Interview: Jul 19th, 2005

    Week 23 Question

    Was the Fade who visited Jaichim Carridin in the Prologue of The Dragon Reborn an early version of Shaidar Haran? Its response that it likes to keep an eye on 'all who serve me' and its apparent sense of humor are behavior atypical of a Fade.

    Robert Jordan

    I was wondering who would spot that. Shadar Haran Version 0.5! The Dark One doesn't get it spot on the first time every time.

    Interview: 2011

    Twitter 2011 (WoT) (Verbatim)

    Darth Andrea (10 January 2011)

    Odd question: In The Dragon Reborn Prologue, a Fade comes to Jaichim Carridin, it's said that the Fade smiles...

    DARTH ANDREA

    Was that Shaidar Haran? it's mentioned later he is the only Fade who smiles or laughs?

    Brandon Sanderson (10 January 2011)

    Many think it's an early incarnation of him. I've read theories to support it.

    HBFFERREIRA

    In the RJ Q&As, he confirms that the smiling Fade is an earlier prototype of Shaidar Haran. http://tinyurl.com/5vy5ghl

    Interview: Nov 11th, 2009

    Question

    At the Darkfriend Social, Carridin is given orders by Ishamael that he can't remember. Later on in Ebou Dar, he sees Mat out the window and he sort of goes into a trance, sees more imagery, and when he snaps out of it, time is stopped and Sammael is in the room. How did this happen? Was Sammael paged somehow when Carridin's orders were triggered?

    Brandon Sanderson

    MAFO—Maria and find out. This means he will answer the question, but he wants to check with Maria first to make sure he has the details straight.

    Maria Simons (via Luckers)

    No, Sammael was not paged. Sammael had sent Carridin to Ebou Dar to find the cache of Power goodies. The notes say that Sammael became aware that there were other parties engaged in the same search, and decided that he had to light a fire under Carridin. Also note Sammael’s reaction to the news that Mat is in Ebou Dar—"'Here?" Oddly, for a moment, Sammael seemed taken aback". It seems to accentuate that Sammael is surprised; if he had been paged, it seems that his answer would have been different.

    Interview: Nov 15th, 2009

    Question

    This was asked at a previous event, and you had to check with Maria regarding whether you should RAFO of give an answer. When Carridin recognized Mat in Ebou Dar, did that trigger some method by which Sammael showed up, like a pager, or was it coincidence?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Haven't heard yet from Maria on this one, so it is still a MAFO (Maria and find out).

    MARIA SIMONS (VIA LUCKERS)

    No, Sammael was not paged. Sammael had sent Carridin to Ebou Dar to find the cache of Power goodies. The notes say that Sammael became aware that there were other parties engaged in the same search, and decided that he had to light a fire under Carridin. Also note Sammael’s reaction to the news that Mat is in Ebou Dar—“‘Here?” Oddly, for a moment, Sammael seemed taken aback”.
