How are you accounting for them co-existing? I mean, I know you just explained your reasoning, that the Gaidal soul is cast into Uno's body, but what happens to Uno's original soul? Does it just get displaced back into the stream of waiting souls?

I love Uno, but I just don't buy it. I don't think he's ugly enough, and I have it on good authority, that he's a fine papa bear. It's a shame that GC is always a swordsman, because that innkeeper was really ugly.

Hi guys !

I hope I'm not getting a too old thread up, but I couldn't resist...

It's my first post here, I just discovered this site (which is absolutely awesome, btw) an hour ago, this is the first speculation I've read, and bam ! I've been hit !

so, please forgive me if this is not the appropriate place, and for my poor english.
and without further ado (maybe that's already quite a lot, now that I think of it - well, maybe I should just stop thinking anyway), here it comes...


the secret identity of Gaidal Cain : I believe it's Olver.
- BS said we've met him already, check.
- Birgitte, a short time after being ripped of TAR, says she hadn't seen him for a while there, which would mean he's been reborn, but she doesn't know if she has to look for an infant or a boy with the difference in time passing between TAR and reality. a boy ? check. (and 9-10 years may be a big delay, but I think it's possible)
and he appears in the story a little while after Birgitte joins the girls...
honestly, Olver age is the only thing making me doubt (a little).
- she has always been the younger one and is worried of being too old for him. well, wouldn't Olver like a cougar ? check.
- they already get along pretty good, and a boy raised among soldiers ? it worries Mat, but that would be a good match for Birgitte. and she would be perhaps his only match, to be honest.
- Olver has obviously a special place in the Pattern, he attaches people to him, first Mat, then Elayne, Nynaeve and Birgitte, the red arms... an unusual boy, perhaps for an unusual destiny ?
- who the hell wins at snakes and foxes ?
- last but not least, the boy is ugly as hell. it's frequently mentioned, and that Birgitte likes her men ugly too. coincidence ? I don't think so...


ok, now it seems I may have overreached a tad, but I'm honestly convinced. it's a sum of littles things...
anyway, thanks for reading, it was quite long and quite unclear. *bows*

Welcome to TL, Chako. Feel free to say hi to everyone on the new users forum.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but Olver != Gaidal Cain, per Robert Jordan. It's a common mistake tho, and a long held theory by many until it was blown up by the Creator.

Aaargh ! I started reading the interviews (that's how I came across this thread), I knew I should have kept reading those before posting here to gloat... T__T
But it made so much sense ! that Creator is evil. I love him.
