Owner Tuon Athaem Kore Paendrag

Akein is a horse owned by Tuon Athaem Kore Paendrag, who received it as a gift from Matrim Cauthon.


Akein is an extremely well shaped horse that even Mat counted his luck on finding.


Akein is a razor, a type of horse owned by Domani bloodborn, which gets its name from the way that the colors of its fur meet each other in neat, straight lines.[1]


Mat bought Akein from a town while on the road to escape Altara and gave it to Tuon a few days later, who rode it like the wind before naming it in the Old Tongue for "swallow."[2]

Tuon took Akein back to Ebou Dar with Karede and Selucia, who rode Rosebud.[3]
