Re: I'd say there are only two serious candidates, and one clear winner ajah Send a noteboard - 23/01/2010 09:23:18 AM
Moiraine just... kept... going for 20 years. Constantly afraid the Black Ajah was on to her, never giving up, unable to even rely much on the support of the Tower, in case said Black Ajah realized what she was doing.

I can see your point here, especially just having reread New Spring. But Verin risks her very soul for infinity, when Moiraine only risks her life on this turn of the wheel.


Lan and Moridin have too big a streak of nihilism to really be "brave."
very good point

Faile just attacks the world with the blunt object that is her personality. This is different than bravery.

HA!


That said, I like Nyn a lot, and would say that she has the best mixture of common sense and determination in the series. Usually.

Do you view Nynaeve as a major character on the level of the three t'averen and Egwene? Or more of a top supporting role?
