    Interview: Nov 11th, 2000

    Mr. Jordan, I love your books. If a person begins to channel at an old age, e.g. Sharina, will she begin to physically look younger when she slows, or will she remain the same and pick up from there?

    Robert Jordan

    She remains the same. It's not the same as having been stilled or burnt out. She's going to have a very long life, still, just not as a youthful person.


    RJ said elsewhere that she will indeed grow younger in appearance.

    Travis (Mangneth) from North Texas

    Will Sharina play a more prominent role in Winter's Heart? How big of a role will she play in books to come? Will we learn more about her, like her past, thoughts, feelings, etc.?

    Robert Jordan

    We'll certainly see her again—for the rest, read and find out. If I tell you everything that's coming, and everything that isn't coming, you're going to lose interest, aren't you?

    Interview: Dec 19th, 2005

    Robert Jordan

    For David, Warders don't slow. They age at a natural pace, but they do maintain vitality and vigor beyond the levels associated with most ordinary men. That said, I recently saw a photograph of a man in his seventies who had an absolutely ripped six-pack. In fact, from the neck down, if you were told you were looking at somebody in his 20s or 30s, you'd just think he was in incredible shape. And he wasn't bonded to anyone. Also, Aes Sedai can release a Warder from the bond. In fact, I have said that most Aes Sedai who have time to realize that they are dying will release any Warders they have in order to spare them the effects. I'm pretty certain I have said that publicly, by the way.

    As an aside, I saw somewhere that I supposedly said that Sharina Melloy will not grow younger. If I did, then I misspoke. Sharina will not grow young, but she will grow younger in appearance, as will any other older women who begin to channel. For Sharina, by way of example, she will "regress" into apparent middle age, but no younger.


    It's not clear where RJ is purported to have said this, since the only instance we have on record is from 2006.

    Interview: Jan 20th, 2006

    Robert Jordan

    For Isabel, hi, cutey. Regarding the scene at Dumai's Wells, the places they had Traveled to were not in the safety of the wagon-circle, where they were, but beyond it, among the Shaido. As for Illian, I was too crude in reinforcing something I had established earlier and wanted to reinforce, i.e. that you do not need to know a spot at all to Travel from it if the place you want to travel to is only a short distance away.

    Regarding Sharina, and other women who learn to channel at age, she will indeed grow younger in appearance. No, she will not achieve an Aes Sedai face without the Oath Rod, but where she has previously looked, say, sixty, she will look perhaps thirty-five, with accompanying changes in hair color. Think of it as analogous to slowing, which older women also do.
