    At some point in TDR, Perrin thinks to himself that he had seen an aiel once (I think upon entering Remen when he sees Gaul). He saw one in the mountains, but correct me if I'm wrong, I'm fairly sure he was there when they saw the three maidens in the stedding as well? Just me nitpicking I suppose..

    You mean this one I assume?

    From The Dragon Reborn

    The Aiel he's referring to is probably this meeting of course

    From The Great Hunt
    But your correct technically he has seen other Aiel.

    From The Great Hunt
    I think its most likely a typo supposed to say Aielman in that DR passage, as its pretty clear he's comparing the mans looks to Rand rather than Aiel looks in general and the other Aiel he met were maidens.

    Or its just Perrin being a bit sexist, and not counting women as warriors. :)
