    I guess a mix of Rand and Perrin.

    Literally almost everyone. The downside of being an empath.

    I just found a reason I relate to Mat. Just finished Book 13.

    So it's when rescuing Moraine that he "pays the price" and they took his left eye. I had a cornea transplant when I was 7 months old. Partial sight in my left eye; am considered legally blind in that eye. I deal with lack of depth perception. I could feel his concern with regard to being able to fight, defend himself, and fearing how Tuon will respond. I've learned to do things in my own way and to accept myself, but it was a journey growing up.

    I like Mat for his cocky attitude and daring. Deep down he cares. And now he will deal with some if the challenges I've faced.

    I feel like a weird combination of Mat and Loial/Generic Brown Ajah. I spend a lot of time with my head in the clouds/reading books, socially awkward, worrying a lot, oversharing, but trying to be helpful to others.... mixed with being a total smart ass who sometimes just says eff it and does the fun thing

    I relate a lot to Egwene, at least lately. The constant need to know everything, always feeling like I want to help people as much as possible, and sometimes doing so against my own self-interest. Anyone who knows me knows that I do NOT handle not knowing things very well. I enjoy leadership roles, as well. And, I think Egwene sometimes forms not-the-healthiest attachments to things, which is definitely a quality I know I have, just caring so. dang. much. all the time :blink
