Perrin never gave his wife a horse that suggested she needed a shave, did he? Mat did, without having promised to do so.

Which he could do, because that Asha'man was following orders from Perrin, who knew what the mission was about. Said Asha'man wasn't too likely to try to use or manipulate him in those circumstances....

Those who do not believe the stories. There are always some.
Those who are willing to take the risk. Mat sometimes loses. If you win, that's instant fame. If you do lose, that's to be expected, so...

So when the DO is sealed away thoroughly, Mat's luck will disappear too.

Supporting evidence: Mat has gotten luckier throughout the series, while the Seals deteriorated and the DO got more...

In Caemlyn, when Rahvin lightninged him. Then he was pining for the fjords for a while, but Mat got over it. :p

Well, the "wimpy" thing would also be disproven by his decision to run off to Tear in order to save some of his friends (who can channel), despite the fact that the a couple of Forsaken and the BA...

Lemme see:

-Wimpy.
I don't think that is correct. He wants to be, but whenever it actually matters, he is brave. Then he berates himself again for having been a fool.

-Wussy.
If that were...

What steps does Egwene take to ease his way?
That may be a bit off topic*, but it is something I haven't really noticed since she hid him in TGH.

Mat does think he should help Rand if Rand needs...

He complains, but he does stick by Rand. About the only time that he really retreats is right at first, when Rand pulls that banner from his saddle bag and informs Mat and Perrin that the Tower is...

Well, Rand did get quite close to it on Dragonmount.

Elaida does give her a very good run for her money.

As for Mat: on the plus side, there's the fact that while he dislikes the OP, he does not seem to hold it seriously against the channelers.
