The Black Ajah
Q: I'm curious, What happened to the Black Ajah's
Warders? Did they kill them?
Q: Would making all Aes Sedai
reswear the 3 oaths on an oath rod, and then asking them,
reveal if they are Black Ajah? (It should...)
Q: Does the Blak Ajah contain all Aes
Sedai who are darkfriends?
Q: Have you ever thought about reinstituting some of
the old ideas from earlier books? For example, in "The
Dragon Reborn" you had a situation with thirteen
dark sisters and thirteen Myrdral to forceably convert
someone to the darker side of things. It seems you have
abandoned that. Do you think you might have something
like that pop up again at some unexpected moment? It
doesn't seem realistic for the black ajah to abandon the
Q: Does the Black Ajah still have the dice they stole,
when the first thirteen left the Tower
Reports from signings
Ask about the three white black aes sedai in Liandrin's group when there should only be two. Joiya Byir (killed at Tear) Rianna Andormeran Falion Bhoda Complete surprise. Really? Mutter mutter. Have to check that out.
When an Aes Sedai turns BA, does she keep her warder?
If so, how is that accomplished. RAFO. Of course, the
easiest way is to pick a DF for a warder. But RAFO.
Oh, and he made some comments about how warder of the BA might sometimes meet with "accidents" so the BA can remain secret. Alternatively, BA might intentionally bond darkfriends.
If an Aes Sedai becomes Black Ajah, the Warder would know instantly that something was up, but wouldn't know exactly what. The Black Ajah has three choices, then-- hope the Warder is a Darkfriend or amenable to being one, hide the affiliation, or arrange for an accident. Yes, this would be painful for the Aes Sedai, but it might become necessary. The process of becoming Black Ajah is evidently quite painful in its own right and thus probably involves more than just swearing new Oaths on the Rod. (I submit that this is why he Red Ajah is rife with Black Ajah-- they have an easier time actively recruiting >from that pool. By the same token, I claim that the Green Ajah is more pure than the others.) I submit that the next person who says 'the Red Ajah is rife with Black Ajah' without proof is going to get strangled with my shawl. - Evy, Raina's Red alter ego.
13 BA that left the Tower. 2 from each ajah. This obviously didnt fly, and was a mistake from an early printing.
