! __[Rand|Rand alThor]__ POV

[Rand|Rand alThor] walks with [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] to meet the %%amyrlin [Amyrlin|Aes Sedai]%%. They pass [Ingtar|Ingtar Shinowa] who looks troubled, and [Kajin] who salutes [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran] as %%ot [Tai'shar|Compleat] [Malkier]%% ("true blood of [Malkier]"). [Nisura], one of [Amalisa Jagad]'s attendants, lets them into the women's quarters and they are led to the [Amyrlin|Aes Sedai]'s chamber. There are three [Aes Sedai] outside the room, %%blue [Leane|Leane Sharif]%%, a [White|White Ajah],[1] and a [Yellow|Yellow Ajah].[2] [Leane|Leane Sharif] lets in [Rand|Rand alThor] alone saying [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] has a task for [Lan|al'Lan Mandragoran].[3] In the chamber are %%amyrlin [Siuan|Siuan Sanche]%%, [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] and %%brown [Verin|Verin Mathwin]%%. [Rand|Rand alThor] does his [Warder|Warder] act and [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] looks annoyed. [Verin|Verin Mathwin] says [Warder] are useful. She would not go without [Tomas] just as [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] would not go without [Alric]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] says [Tam al'Thor|Tam alThor] left the [Two Rivers] as a boy and joined the [Illian|Illian (Country)] army. He served in the [Whitecloak War], two wars with [Tear|Tear (Country)], and the [Aiel War] rising to blademaster and Second Captain of the [Companions|Illian (Country)]. He returned to the [Two Rivers] with a wife from [Caemlyn] and an infant.[4] [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] says [Ingtar|Ingtar Shinowa] will leave in a few hours to search for the [Horn|Horn of Valere]. [Mat|Matrim Cauthon] will accompany him because the [ruby dagger|Ruby Dagger] was stolen and [Perrin|Perrin Aybara] will probably go, too. She asks if [Rand|Rand alThor] wants to join them or stay with Lord [Agelmar|Agelmar Jagad]. The [Aes Sedai] are all leaving today as well with [Egwene|Egwene alVere] and [Nynaeve|Nynaeve alMeara]. [Rand|Rand alThor] says he will go with [Ingtar|Ingtar Shinowa]. [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] tells [Rand|Rand alThor] he is the [Dragon Reborn|Rand alThor]. [Rand|Rand alThor] says he will not be used like [Raolin Darksbane], [Yurian Stonebow] or [Guaire Amalasan]. He says [Thom|Thom Merrilin] told him about them. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] recounts how, when she and [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] were [Accepted] about to be raised, they were with the [Amyrlin|Aes Sedai][5] and her [Keeper of the Chronicles|Aes Sedai], %%blue [Gitara Moroso]%%. She had a [Foretelling|Weaves], "He is born again! I feel him! The [Dragon|Lews Therin Telamon] takes his first breath on the slope of [Dragonmount]! He is coming! He is coming! Light help us! Light help the world! He lies in the snow and cries like the thunder! He burns like the sun!" Then she dropped dead. The [Amyrlin|Aes Sedai] sent them searching for the [Dragon Reborn|Rand alThor]. [Moiraine|Moiraine Damodred] cites parts of the ''[Karaethon Cycle|Karaethon Prophecies]'', "The ''[Karaethon Cycle|Karaethon Prophecies]'' says that the Dragon will be reborn on the slopes of [Dragonmount], where he died during the Breaking of the World." And "He will be of the ancient blood, and raised by the old blood."[6] [Rand|Rand alThor] recovers enough from the shock to say that he will not be used. [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] cites, "When the winds of [Tarmon Gai'don|Creator] scour the earth, he will face the Shadow and bring forth Light again in the world." [Rand|Rand alThor] insists that [Ba'alzamon|Ishamael] is dead and [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] tells him he is a fool. [Siuan|Siuan Sanche] says he can go. Only the three of them know he is the [Dragon Reborn|Rand alThor]. [Rand|Rand alThor] says he will not be used and leaves.
