Fat bald man

Male angreal

The fat little man angreal was found by Rand al'Thor in the Stone of Tear. It is the only known example of a male angreal compared to the multitude in the possession of women. It is shaped as a little fat man sitting cross-legged with a sword across his knees. It is carved of shiny dark green stone.


Rand first used this angreal when he used a Portal stone to transport him, Moiraine Damodred, Lan Mandragoran, Egwene al'Vere, Matrim Cauthon all the Aiel, as well as multiple packhorses filled with supples to Rhuidean. Moiraine Damodred comments that the angreal was not strong enough to have safely transported so many people; Rand reluctantly agrees.

While linked to half of the power of the Choedan Kal, Rand was also able to draw upon the fat man angreal to sever Asmodean's ties to the Dark One.[1] He also used it to bring water to the fountains of Rhuidean, and in battle against the Shaido at Cairhien. It was lost during Rand's captivity by Elaida's Aes Sedai.

Rand makes a gift of the angreal to the Black Tower before his battle at Shayol Ghul, with his last orders for the Asha'man.
