Another thought I had connecting Mordeth with Finnland... Mashadar presumably means "shadow something" or something to do with shadow. Could Mordeth have visited the foxes and wished for a means to save Aridhol from darkfriends, but ended up unwittingly sacrificing his shadow in the process? Ie, the Finns took his shadow and created Mashadar, which turned everyone against DFs--but against each other as well. Mordeth is ammune to Mashadar because it's a part of him. I know Mordeth is portrayed as a dick by Moiraine, but all this happened 2000 years ago (or however long it was). Maybe Mordeth had good intentions to save Aridhol, but ultimately got tricked by the Finn? Sorry if this has been mentioned a kazillion times, I know there have been theories connecting Mordeth and Finnland before, but I never really read them.
I speculated at one point that Mashadar actually was the weapon intended to fight against the Shadow, but went out of control and destroyed Aridhol instead. That would seem to fit nicely with your theory that it was a Finn creation.
