Barthanes Damodred was High Seat of House Damodred and was cousin to Laman Damodred.

Appearance Edit

He was slim and handsome and tall for a Cairhienin. He had black eyes and slightly greying hair.

Activities Edit

Barthanes invites Rand to one of his parties[1] and tries to find out where Rand's loyalties lie and if he supports King Galldrian Riatin and his project of digging up the male Choedan Kal.[2] He had a waygate within his estate. He was a Darkfriend and passes a message from Padan Fain to Rand about meeting each other on Toman Head.[3] He was found torn to pieces in his bedroom after the party at his house, presumably by the then unnamed gholam.

Trivia Edit

At the party where he met Rand he shows respect beyond that given to an Aes Sedai to Verin, possibly due to Verin's status as Black Ajah.
