    Interview: Jun 16th, 1995

    Robert Jordan

    On the question if it is possible to find out who is "the one who is no longer" RJ answered: "Possibly".


    This was Setalle Anan, who is no longer Aes Sedai. (She was probably Martine Janata, who burned out while experimenting with ter'angreal.)

    Interview: Oct 9th, 1996


    Who was the one who is no more? The innkeeper or the guy on the barrel?

    Robert Jordan

    [an amused look] RAFO.


    Is the innkeeper an ex-Aes Sedai?




    This refers to a dream shared by Amys, Melaine, and Bair referenced in Lord of Chaos. We get a clue in The Path of Daggers that Setalle Anan was Martine Janata—an Aes Sedai who burned out while studying ter'angreal—and it's near-confirmed in Knife of Dreams when Setalle takes a particular interest in Mat's medallion. Thus she was 'the one who is no longer [Aes Sedai]', and she was the key to finding the Bowl. The guy on the barrel was Jain Farstrider (Noal Charin).

    Interview: Apr 8th, 2001

    Gonzo the Great

    A few more, possibly interesting, remarks and answers we got:

    Robert Jordan

    Being burned out is different from being stilled. The latter is not as severe as the former.


    This is just as I expected, or at least in no way in contrast with it. :)

    Interview: 2013

    Twitter 2013 (WoT) (Verbatim)

    Aaron Coventry (23 January 2013)

    When Faile, Olver, etc escaped through the gateway to Merrilor, where did Setalle go? If you told us, I missed it.

    Brandon Sanderson (23 January 2013)

    She makes it through the chaos alive.

    Regarding burning out, is it Healable?

    Brandon Sanderson

    Not in the same way that stilling is Healed. All it says in the notes is what I just said. And that Nynaeve would not be able to Heal Setalle. Being reborn would heal burning out, but transmigration would not. That's why even though Lanfear shifted bodies, she was still reduced.

    Interview: Apr, 2013


    Can someone burned out be Healed, be it similar to the severing healing process or not?

    Maria Simons

    No, someone who is burned out will stay that way. It cannot be healed.
