    Interview: Jan 25th, 2005

    Week 2 Question

    The other big murder mystery—Ispan and Adeleas. Have you given us sufficient clues in the books that you think we should be able to figure out this one? Any hints on where to look?

    Robert Jordan

    No, I haven't given you enough information to solve the murders of Adeleas and Ispan, but they will be solved in Knife of Dreams. How's that for a hint?


    There were hints, such as Careane showing her face at the Kin's farm, but there were also red herrings pointing at Sareitha.

    Interview: Oct 29th, 1998

    When an Aes Sedai turns Black Ajah, does she keep her Warder? If so, how is that accomplished?

    Robert Jordan

    RAFO. Of course, the easiest way is to pick a Darkfriend for a Warder. But RAFO.


    He either misinterpreted my question with that parenthetical comment, or intentionally avoided the point. I was thinking specifically of Vandene here, since it looks like she might have killed Adeleas and Ispan, and I have a hard time believing that she has been Black since before she ever bonded a Warder. She obviously has been Black for quite a while, since it was most likely her that warded the Draghkar who nearly killed Moiraine in The Great Hunt. But I have to think she most likely turned Black some time during her tenure as an Aes Sedai. So is Jaem a Darkfriend too? We must assume...


    It was revealed in Knife of Dreams that Adeleas was killed by Careane. Vandene was killed after killing Careane. Since Verin was sent after the boys, Liandrin seems the most likely candidate to have warded the Draghkar.

    Interview: 2006


    Robert Jordan

    When Careanne (Sareitha) is explaining about the impossibility of one woman forcing a link on another, this study should have survived from the Breaking, I think. Or, at least, it was begun during the Breaking. After this second study was begun and had gone on for a number of years, more of the original was discovered. With the destruction of the intervening years, relatively little is known, some of it only to the Black Ajah.


    This topic is explored a little more thoroughly here.

    Interview: Apr, 2012


    What happened to Merilille and Talaan?

    Brandon Sanderson



    I have this theory that they were killed by Careane to try and get the Windfinders to leave the palace.
