Default Who is the Mystery Taveren with the Yellow Eyes?

Hi all. First post for me
We all know that when Mat, Perrin and Rand think about each other they get Instant RandVision Access to what the others are doing. In light of that, consider Perrins POV, from Knife of Dreams chapter 12, on page 321 of my softcover book:

"She and Mishima exchanged glances. Light, he hoped there was nothing in the prophecies about TWO men with yellow eyes. Those colors whirled, and he dashed them"

So...my question to you all is...who was being "summoned" by Perrins stray thought; it seems to me there is a mystery taveren, never before seen because no one thought of him in that light prior to this instance. Clearly it wasnt in reference to himself, Perrin. Elyas? Noam/ Boundless? And could either be the "Broken Wolf" of the Dark Prophecies? That may merit the character getting Taveren status. Noam certainly was in a convenient place in a convenient time.

I think that you're thinking in the wrong direction here.
The prophecies which Perrin thinks of here are the Prophecies of the Dragon, and who is the Dragon? Rand al'Thor. So it seems likely that Perrin had a stray thought of Rand, which can indeed produce such swirling colors in him (and in Mat).

Agreed on the prophecies causing the colors, and also, the second yellow-eyed man was Elyas, who was with him at the time.

Default RE: Broken wolf

I agree with what the others have said, but also wanted to point out that I believe the "broken wolf" in the Prophecies of the Shadow refers to Hopper, since it says Death has known it.

Yes. It's either Elyas or Hopper - both are broken. If it's Perrin because he met I shy once who became "Death" then this series is all sorts of downhill - and not subjectively...

I think it's Rand, but that's another thread. (I believe the second most likely is Lan.)

Are you familiar with the phrase: 'opening a can of worms'?

Sigh, I don't think Rand's it, unless you hold very important the fact that wolves see Rand as an exceptional human.

LAN? Now that sounds like a likely additional candidate. Very likely, actually...

There are other wolf references for Rand throughout the series, including the derivation of his name (from Randall). More than there are for Lan, actually. And that's not counting the Shadowkiller thing.
