    Interview: Nov 18th, 1998

    John Hamby

    And the silly trivial 'I-just-want-to-know-without-a-doubt-question', which almost got me more than I had planned.

    I asked him whether Delana Mosalaine had been raised to the Hall as Sitter before the Tower split or after. Karl-Johan and Jed probably recall our analysis of the Halls a month ago.

    I probably pronounced the name wrong because he just looked at me. I prompted by saying, "Delana, the Gray Sitter who we know is Black. Siuan's old friend from novicedom."

    Robert Jordan

    RJ started to say something but was trying to find the right words when I foolishly helped him out by saying, "Delana was raised at Salidar". He said yes and laughed. I tried then to follow up with asking him if she was an important aspect of Siuan's pattern in the young Sitters. RAFO was the response.

    Interview: Nov 14th, 2000 Chat (Verbatim)


    Mr Jordan. I was a bit disappointed in Winter's Heart. The last chapter in The Path of Daggers has the Salidar Aes Sedai stepping through a gateway in eyesight of Dragonmount. In Winter's Heart, you have them still in Murandy. Did they get too cold to stay??

    Robert Jordan

    No. Winter's Heart overlaps the ending of the last book.

    Interview: Sep 3rd, 2005


    Who was the third Blue Ajah Sitter who didn't make it to Salidar? What became of her?

    Robert Jordan

    Well, she died. She was one of the ones who was killed after Siuan was deposed and everything went to hell in a handbasket inside the Tower.

    Interview: Nov 9th, 2009

    Brandon Sanderson

    Stated that the Ajah Heads in the White Tower conspired to send Sitters to Salidar who would speed up reconciliation, but not draw suspicion due to being supporters of Elaida previously. They chose young Sitters in the Tower as placeholders. However some of the Sitters who left the Tower went of their own accord.

    The Ajah Heads for the reunited Ajahs will likely be the ones who led their Ajahs before the split. Will be determined quietly and is Ajah business only.

    Will the Salidar Aes Sedai and Tower Aes Sedai delegations to the Black Tower be 13x13'd?

    Brandon Sanderson

    And so we had our sixth RAFO.

    Robert Jordan

    —157 (F35) Last possible day for rebel Aes Sedai in Salidar to have decided to start testing women "as old as Nynaeve."

    Interview: Nov 9th, 2009


    The next question was about the criteria that the Ajah Heads used to determine which sitters they sent to the rebels in Salidar.

    Brandon Sanderson

    Basically the Ajah heads had a small selection pool to start with. Their primary criteria were: a) loyalty to the Ajah Heads, would they do as they were told? b) would they be acceptable to the Aes Sedai in Salidar? c) finally did the Ajah Heads think they could be persuasive?

    A comment was made about age, Brandon’s answer was to reiterate the limited nature of the Ajah Heads selection pool, the fact that most of the Aes Sedai Sitters that were sent were young was coincidental. He did go on to mention that the “too young Sitters” was a completely different matter.

    He then went on to say which Sitters remain in power after reunification will be dealt with quietly. The most likely default will be who was Sitter/Head before the split.


    None of the Ajah plants in Salidar were notably young; this seems to have been a matter of confusion on the part of the questioner.
