! __Perrin__ POV

[Perrin|Perrin Aybara], [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred], [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran], [Zarine|Zarine Bashere] and [Loial] arrive at [Tear|Tear (City)]. They are looking for [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] starts to reach out for wolves, but then stops himself. He also notices how hot and humid it is. [Loial] points out that the city folk look "defeated." They stop at an inn called [The Star], which has a weaver's shop on one side and a smithy on the other. The innkeeper, [Jurah Haret], greets them and tells [Loial] that it has been a year since he has seen other [Ogier]. After they get their rooms, [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] leave the inn, telling the others to remain close to the inn. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] puts his stuff in his room and then goes down to the smithy next door. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] spends all day at the smithy. He looks up to find [Zarine|Zarine Bashere] watching him. The smith is named [Dermid Ajala]. As [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] is leaving, [Dermid|Dermid Ajala] lets him keep one of his hammers.

He goes back up to his room and puts the hammer down, when [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] calls him. He and [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] have returned and they all gather for a meeting. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] tells them that the High Lord [Samon|BeLal] is [Be'lal|BeLal].[1] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] thinks that [Be'lal|BeLal] will let [Rand|Rand alThor] take %%ot [Callandor]%% and then he will take it from [Rand|Rand alThor]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] mentions that [Ishamael] and [Lanfear] are the strongest of the [Forsaken]. She asks [Loial] what he knows about [Be'lal|BeLal]. He razed the [Hall of the Servants|Paaran Disen] just before [Lews Therin|Lews Therin Telamon] and his companions sealed the [Bore|Creator]. [Loial] recalls two [Ogier] authors who wrote about [Be'lal|BeLal]. [Jalanda son of Aried son of Coiam|Jalanda] wrote that [Be'lal|BeLal] was called "The Envious" because of his jealousy of [Lews Therin|Lews Therin Telamon]. [Moilin daughter of Hamada daughter of Juendan|Moilin] wrote that he was called "Netweaver" in ''A Study of the War of the Shadow''. [Be'lal|BeLal] and [Sammael] were leaders in the fight against the [Dark One|ShaiTan] before they forsook the Light. Both were also masters of the sword. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] plan on entering the [Stone|Stone of Tear]. She says even the [Forsaken] cannot stand up to [balefire|Weaves]. She has learned much in the last year and is now more dangerous.[2] [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] mentions that he saw [Aiel] on the rooftops. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] recalls that the [Aiel] in [Remen][3] said that when the [Stone|Stone of Tear] falls, the [Aiel] will leave the [Three-fold Land|Aiel Waste].
