! __Perrin__ POV

[Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] wakes [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] telling him that [Rand|Rand alThor] is gone. [Uno|Uno Nomesta] and [Masema|Masema Dagar] come out of %%blue [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred]'s%% cabin. [Masema|Masema Dagar] is overwrought that [Rand|Rand alThor] is gone, then accepts that he left to spread his gospel. [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] thinks he is crazy. [Loial] and [Min|Min Farshaw] are in [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred]'s cabin with her. She shows a letter from [Rand|Rand alThor] saying that [Ba'alzamon|Ishamael] is after him again and that he does not want others dying for him. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] wonders which of the [Forsaken] are already free, naming [Lanfear], [Sammael], [Asmodean], [Be'lal|BeLal], [Rahvin] and [Ishamael].[1] [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] and [Uno|Uno Nomesta] enter. [Loial] mentions [Rand|Rand alThor] talking about his dreams. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] then asks [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] about his dreams and he tells her about the crystal sword. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] says it is %%ot [Callandor]%%. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] sends [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] to see if others dreamed of it. [Loial] notes that the [Prophecies of the Dragon|Karaethon Prophecies] say the [Dragon Reborn|Rand alThor] will wield %%ot [Callandor]%%. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] says that is only one of many signs and cites others. He "shall slay his people with the sword of peace, and destroy them with the leaf." He "shall bind the nine moons to serve him." He will heal "wounds of madness and cutting of hope." What chains has he broken, and who put into chains? She explains that [Rand|Rand alThor] caused [Perrin|Perrin Aybara]'s dream. [Channelers|True Source] who are strong in the [Spirit|One Power] can force their dreams others. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] returns saying others dreamed of the sword as well. [Uno|Uno Nomesta] reports that [Rand|Rand alThor] left through a newly formed crack in the mountain wall. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] sends the [Shienarans|Shienar][2] to meet someone in [Jehannah][3] and await word from her there. She sends [Min|Min Farshaw] to [Tar Valon] to report to the [Amyrlin|Aes Sedai]. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran], [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] and [Loial] will accompany [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and follow [Rand|Rand alThor]. As they leave, [Min|Min Farshaw] asks [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] if he has a message for [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara]. [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] is caught off guard and says no. Alone with [Perrin|Perrin Aybara], [Min|Min Farshaw] says she never [views|viewings] anything about [Loial]. About [Perrin|Perrin Aybara], she [views|viewings]:

* An [Aielman|Aiel] in a cage.[4] 
* A [Tuatha'an|TuathaAn] with a sword.[5] 
* A falcon and a hawk, perching on your shoulders. Both female, I think.[6]

She also tells him that if he meets the most beautiful woman he has ever seen he should run.[7] She tells [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] she loves him like a brother and he is flattered.[8] She tells him she is bound to [Rand|Rand alThor] and that [Egwene|Egwene alVere] knows. They prepare to depart.

! Notes (Possible Spoilers)

[#1] [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] apparently has not figured out that [Ishamael] is [Rand|Rand alThor]'s [Ba'alzamon|Ishamael]. [Min|Min Farshaw] is the only one who knows that [Lanfear] is free. First mention of [Asmodean]. First mentions of [Be'lal|BeLal], [Sammael] and [Rahvin] who will appear later in the book.\\
[#2] In addition to [Uno|Uno Nomesta], [Masema|Masema Dagar] and [Ragan], there are [Bartu], [Chaena], [Nangu] and [Nengar] ([TFoH,Ch38]), [Mendao], [Sakaru] and [Sar] ([TFoH,Ch40]).\\
[#3] Her name is never given, but when the [Shienarans|Shienar] arrive in [Jehannah] she is dead and buried and no one else in her family knows the name [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred]. They are left on their own. ([TFoH,Ch38])\\
[#4] [Gaul] ([TDR,Ch33])\\
[#5] [Aram] ([TSR,Ch45])\\

[#8] In early printings of [The Dragon Reborn], [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] responds that he never had a sister. This is contradicted in [TSR,Ch29] where his two sisters are slain by [Fain|Padan Fain]. In later printings this error is corrected.\\
