In the [Old Tongue], Brotherless. The name for [Aiel] warriors who could not accept [Rand|Rand alThor] as the %%ot [Car'a'carn|Rand]%% and left their own clans to join the [Shaido].

After [Rand|Rand alThor]'s revelation, many [Aiel] could not accept their history. Some experienced the bleakness, a sense of melancholy and loss. Many of these threw away their spears, some moving to the wetlands and some even joining the [TuathaAn]. Others simply refused to believe and many of these left with the [Shaido].
