Default TGH: Ch. 19 - Lanfear's Horn Obsession

I mentioned the oddity of Agelmar's pull to the horn as a possible indicator that he was a darkfriend. Now, while it's true that a desire for greatness is not the sole domain of darkfriends, the Liandrin's of the world sure seem to find the Dark One at will. But I thought Lanfear's obsession was worth noting for its similarity, but even more for her inability to contain it.

CHAPTER: 16 - In the Mirror of Darkness
"No, it would never do," Selene said, "for that to fall into the wrong hands. The Horn of Valere. I could not tell you how often I've dreamed of touching it, holding it in my hands. You must promise me, when you have it, you will let me touch it."

"You have it." Selene's voice was exultant as her gaze rested on the ornately worked chest on Loial's saddle. She was wearing her own dress again; it looked as white as new snow to Rand. "I knew you would make the right choice. May I . . . have a look at it?"

CHAPTER: 19 - Beneath the Dagger
"Let me try. . . ." Even for a woman of Selene's height, Loial's saddle was high above the ground. She reached up to touch the finely wrought patterns on the chest, ran her hands across them, pressed. There was a click, and she pushed the lid up, let it fall open.

CHAPTER: 20 - Saidin
"I want to see it again," Selene said as they halted. She dismounted and strode to Loial's horse. Their shadows, long and thin, pointed west from the sun just peeking over the horizon. "Bring it down for me, alantin." Loial began to undo the straps. "The Horn of Valere."
We know that she told Rand she wanted to rule the world with him and challenge the DO and Creator, but I never looked at the Horn as one of the tools she would liked to have had to herself. It makes sense that she'd start with the Horn and move on to greater and more dangerous sources of Power. But, overall, her desire for power did not slacken during her imprisonment.
