    Can you be more specific? I know that nothing I mentioned is beyond book 4. The "character" I suggested doesn't actually exist. That's just me wanting everything. :) I also know that some other people mentioned things that ARE beyond book 4. Or is there something you want clarified, maybe?

    Ah, ok. I was going to say, I didn't know that an Aiel Far Dareis Mai could do that! :lol

    No, but it would be super cool, right? :D

    I'd be a Warder. the training and capabilities that they get is something I wish I could have, no matter how harsh it may be (though if I were actually IN that kind of training, I almost wonder if my tune would change...). On top of that, to be the guardian of someone else, to protect them and fight along side them, is a concept I dream of. from the very first time I'd ever heard of the Warders, I liked them.

    Hm, I think I'd probably be a Tinker or an Ogier. I am slow and patient and love to learn and read like an Ogier and seem to always try to find a peaceful way out of a situation like a Tinker. Besides, I love colorful clothes and trees too. :)

    I'd probably get stuck as one of the "Great Captains" although I guess I am crazy enough sometimes to be considered for channelling. I certainly would not pick that tho. The mental problems followed by the wasting sickness, and that sickly, oily, vomity, horrible feeling every time you have to touch the taint wouldn't be worth it.

    I think... one of the Kin, most probably. I've always thought that there are not enough hours in the day to do all of the things that I'd like to do. I enjoy crafts, reading, puzzles, studying, games, writing and there are never enough hours in the day for all that.

    All that time and no oaths. Sure I'd have to behave myself, after a fashion, but think of all that time to use for learning and experiencing life's riches. I'd probably share it with a collection of cats, or spend time with the Tinkers or all manner of other things. :)

    Aiel for sure, I already feel like I hold to a strong honor code, I would just have an issue with the whole running forever thing. I hate running.

    Lady Cairsora of House Nihar (a house of mid-level importance in Andor), Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah (and a very powerful one at that).

    I've always pictured myself as a wetlander, although there was a time when I considered Malkier (yes, I know that it's technically part of the wetlands, but they're not soft like the others so I'm going to exclude borderlanders in that classification). I'm not tough enough to be a borderlander, though. I want to be a noble because it comes with property, money, pretty clothes, etc. ( :lol ), but I don't need to be powerful enough to become entrenched in politics. I do, however, want to be a strong channeler so that I can use all of the weaves and not have to defer to many others. The Green Ajah is because I feel a strong calling to protect the world from the Shadow, but if Tarmon Gai'don weren't coming up I would consider the Gray Ajah because I'm rather good at working with people.

    So yeah, that's who I'd be.

    I would like to be Birgette Silverbow. She is tied to the horn, and spun out in every life you could imagine. :) I've always wanted to live out different lives and see how they affected who I would become, and that seems like the best choice to me. :D

    Same. They're the most fun girls around, strangely enough.

    My first thought is just that I'd like to be able to channel (and be able to handle it). And I do have an attachment to deserts, so maybe more specifically, Aiel.

    I have an attachment to desserts. Does that count? Perhaps I could be a fat Aiel... even though I'm quite slender in real life.

    I almost typed that myself by accident, lol. Well, something like neopolitan ice cream does have three-fold flavors.

    Just to be different i'd be from the two rivers (Blood of Manethern). The two rivers guys and gals have the strongest backbones, almost fearless, are resilient and get on with it. They seem like simple folk but with hearts of gold!
