Default Could Fain be fighting for the Light?

Okay honestly, I don't really believe this myself, but after giving it some thought, I think it might deserve some looking into. So here is my theory.

We all know the driving force between what happened to Mordeth and SL was a deep hatred for the shadow that eventually consumed them and became a dark entity of its own. But what if MorFain's(I'm calling him Morphine from now on), hatred for the shadow actually outweighs his hatred for Rand and the others?

I mean, think about it. He's killed and tortured Myrddraals to get info from them to use against the shadow, then he leaves Rand a note about Toman Head, which allows him and the others to distract the Seanchan so Eggy and the girls can escape and also get the dagger for Mat. Now we all know Morphine is crafty and intelligent in his own way, I'm sure he could've gotten that dagger back easily if he wanted to and walked right out of there, decimating anyone who got in his way, but instead he fled and let them sound the horn and defeat the Seanchan.

Secondly, when he joined the Children and went to TR, he methodically lead children away and disposed of them so Perrin and the others wouldn't have to fight so many in the future. What a kind, considerate man he is!

And then at Cairhien! He practically gave Rand the answer of how to cleanse Saidin! Out of all the places he could have cut Rand with that dagger and killed him, a stab in the shoulder, a nick on a finger or something, he went straight for that wound infected with the Shadow's taint. Coincidence? I think not!

So see, yeah, he is still a villain, in his own way, but I think he could possibly, and cryptically, be helping Rand and the others to defeat the DO. Then after that is done, he will concentrate on killing them.

Like I said before, I don't really believe this myself, but it does strike me as a possibility.

No doubt it was Trollocs that slaughtered the Aybarra family, women and children all.

I don't believe he is fighting for the light exactly, but the only person he hates more than Rand would be the Dark One. If hes not instrumental in bringing down the DO then he will at least help kill a Forsaken. I always said he was light by proxy. A great many things are attributed to his actions as if the "Creator" works Fain into the pattern. Evil to fight a greater evil.

He's evil, just a different kind. And by NO means Light sided by proxy. He's his own side. He hates the Dark One and the Dark One's minions (whom he uses at times) and he hates Rand and all those on the Light side.

His role is complex, hes the wildcard. Like golam in lord of the rings. I know hes got this evil insanity driving him to kill Rand, but I have no doubt he will play a pivitol role in the last battle. His intentions will most likely be evil, but whatever his intentions, it will probably work out for some good.
