For simplicity, I decided to track the character appearance separately Chapter 11 Overall, interesting, but it doesn’t really advance the plot Miscellaneous *In addition to the seven who come to collect them, there are the three sitters from each Ajah and two others *They Pass through the testing ter’angreal for the ceremony *The feeling of tightness from swearing the oaths does not fade for a full year *Neither Rafela not Leane have the Ageless look *The three Blue sitters are Lelaine, Anlee and Eadyth(?) Two (Lelaine and one other) are sitters twenty years later, and one is killed in the fighting when the Tower splits *Rafela is interested in maintaining or even bringing back ancient customs Character Development Siuan She tricks/manipulates Moiraine into Moiraine being raised first. Moiraiane *She had decided Blue a year before, *She notices when Rafela yields to Leane and thinks it strange Chapter 12 I liked this chapter, we got a lot of information on the inner workings of the Tower and Aes Sedai Character Development Siuan Shows how good she is at puzzles and patterns She is also unable to stop herself showing off Moiraine She is able to puzzle out that Cetalia heads the Blue Ajah Eyes and Ears just from learning she had Siuan look at old reports Miscellaneous *Before Moiraine and Siuan, there were around 44/45 Blue Ajah Aes Sedai in Tar Valon *Moiraine notices Cabriana and Kairen take their lead from Anaiya. It is subtle but obvious to someone trained in the Sun Palace Mystery Resolved ;Why did Elaida defer to Meilyn We see why she deferred and mostly understand how it could be possible that Siuan and Moiraine hadn’t noticed it before. We do learn that from the moment that girls enter the tower, they are taught it is extremely rude to speak of someone’s strength in the Tower and discouraged from thinking of their strength in terms of anyone else’s. They must have forgot to tell Egwene and Nynaeve this.
