Setting: Illian (city)

Point of view: Graendal

Graendal visits Sammael's rooms in Illian and is amazed at the items he has found from the Age of Legends. He hints that he has found something powerful, which Graendal suspects means he has an angreal or sa'angreal.[1] Sammael claims he now has a truce with Rand. Sammael wants to know where the other Forsaken are. Graendal states that Asmodean and Lanfear are dead and Moghedien probably is, too. Mesaana is in the White Tower. Graendal does not know where any of the others are. Sammael hints that the Great Lord has promised him the position of Nae'blis and tells Graendal to find where the others are so he can point Rand at them.

Point of view: Sammael

Sammael plans to do whatever he must to survive and become Nae'blis and defeat Rand in the Last Battle.
