I was rereading LoC last night and really paid attention to what Taim was saying. He called Aiel "so-called Aiel", and definitely displayed a knowledge no one who wasn't well familiar with Age of Legends wouldn't have. Beside Forsaken, no one else calls Aiel "so-called Aiel". Actually, it wouldn't make any sense if anyone who didn't personally know them during AoL would call them like that. That lead me to conclusion that Taim IS a Forsaken, and that he MUST be one of them, not just one of their pupils. Now, RJ said that Taim wasn't Demandred, and I am sure it is so. Also, we all know that Lews Therin displayed maniacal hatred whenever Taim was near. It is said and well known that Demandred hated Lews Therin. However, the only Forsaken Lews can hate that much is not Demandred. To cut the long story short - to me it seems possible that DO appointed Demandred as Nae' blis and that DEMANDRED = MORIDHIN, while ISHAMAEL = TAIM. What do you think, is this possible? To me it is easily conceivable that DO gave Ishamael Taim's body when he died. How certain are we that Moridhin is Ishamael? Could all signs be only a "red herring"? If so, it would also resolve a dilemma about who killed Asmodean, my favorite puzzle.
