    Interview: Oct 29th, 1998

    Kevin Bartlett

    When an Aes Sedai turns Black Ajah, does she keep her Warder? If so, how is that accomplished?

    Robert Jordan

    RAFO. Of course, the easiest way is to pick a Darkfriend for a Warder. But RAFO.


    He either misinterpreted my question with that parenthetical comment, or intentionally avoided the point. I was thinking specifically of Vandene here, since it looks like she might have killed Adeleas and Ispan, and I have a hard time believing that she has been Black since before she ever bonded a Warder. She obviously has been Black for quite a while, since it was most likely her that warded the Draghkar who nearly killed Moiraine in The Great Hunt. But I have to think she most likely turned Black some time during her tenure as an Aes Sedai. So is Jaem a Darkfriend too? We must assume...


    It was revealed in Knife of Dreams that Adeleas was killed by Careane. Vandene was killed after killing Careane. Since Verin was sent after the boys, Liandrin seems the most likely candidate to have warded the Draghkar.
