Title False Dragon

Raolin Darksbane was a False Dragon who could channel.


Born in Aren Mador in Essenia, now modern day Far Madding, he was one of the most powerful False Dragons on record.[1] After he was captured his followers assaulted Tar Valon in an effort to rescue him.[2][3]


When Ba'alzamon speaks with Rand al'Thor in his dreams, he tells of the White Tower using False Dragons such as Darksbane, Davian, Yurian Stonebow, Guaire Amalasan and Logain Ablar.[4] Thomdril Merrilin recognizes the names and knows that even speaking them is dangerous.[5] Rand says that he will not be used by the White Tower, Moiraine Damodred, Siuan Sanche or Verin Mathwin, like Darksbane and the others were used.[6][7]
