"I'm taking you where you can serve me."
   — Rand to Mazrim Taim

External summary

<<<   A New Arrival    >>>
Setting: Royal Palace of Andor in Caemlyn

Point of view: Rand al'Thor

The Andoran nobles get flighty again when Mazrim Taim's arrival is announced. The Aiel Maidens get tense. Rand declares that Taim is welcome under the amnesty Rand proclaimed for channelers. Rand needs male channelers to augment his forces for the Last Battle. Taim is ten to fifteen years older than Rand, surprising when madness usually overtakes channelers within a few years.

Taim is brought in and verbally spars with Davram Bashere while Rand fights to keep Lews Therin from taking over. He submits to Rand but Lews Therin wants him killed. Taim has a gift for Rand, one of the Seven Seals to the Dark One's prison which gives him three unbroken seals. Driven by Lews Therin, Rand goes slightly mad and seemingly is going to shatter the seal. Only Bashere's holding his arms until he can regain control prevents the seal's destruction. He gives the seal to Bashere to guard.

Rand decides to take Taim to the "farm".
