Activities Edit

Attacking the Stone of Tear Edit

He is with the group of Aiel that rescue Nynaeve al'Meara, Elayne Trakand and Egwene al'Vere from being sold off to a Myrddraal. Later he meets Matrim Cauthon and Juilin Sandar outside the Stone of Tear where he is leading a group of Aiel into it.

He is there when Rand first releases Callandor and after the battle reveals to Moiraine Damodred that the People of the Dragon are in fact the Aiel, by showing the dragon on his left forearm.

He breaks up a fight between Faile Bashere and Berelain sur Paendrag Paeron over Perrin Aybara, after Trollocs had attacked the Stone of Tear. He repremands them by telling them that enough blood had been spilt already.

Back to Rhuidean Edit

He shows Rand the symbol for Rhuidean on the Portal Stone and is then transported from Tear with the rest of the Aiel to Rhuidean. After Rhuidean he leads Rand to Cold Rocks Hold, and then onto Alcair Dal where Rand declares himself as the Car'a'carn the same time Couladin does. After this he takes his clan back to Rhuidean where he waits for all the rest of the clans to gather there.

He brings in some Tairen Lords who report about the Shaido are attacking Cairhien. After the attack he helps Berelain steward Cairhien and begins to treat her like a daughter, even reprimanding her when she started neglecting her duties and hiding out in her room. He leads a large group of Aiel warriors to help rescue Rand from the White Tower Aes Sedai and is in the Battle of Dumai's Wells.

Restoring order to Arad Doman Edit

Months later he Travels with the rest of his clan to Arad Doman. There, he is required by Rand to bring peace to the war torn country. With Dobraine Taborwin he manages to secure Bandar Eban. He then meets with Rand to tell him the news, but is reprimanded by Rand for taking to long. He is then given orders to try and capture all the missing Council of Merchants in order to force them to appoint a new ruler. When Rand finally rides into Bandar Eban, Rhuarc greets him with the rest of the Aiel there. Rand allows him and the rest of the Aiel to take the fifth, but only from the rich. He later comes to Rand with the news that the Aiel have captured Alamindra Cutren.

He then pulls out of Arad Doman with the rest of the Aiel to Tear. When Rand returns to Tear from Dragonmount the Rhuarc challenges Rand on his continual stupidity on running into danger alone. Rand promises to always take a Maiden escort from now on and tells Rhuarc that he will repay his toh.

Last Battle Edit

Rhuarc is one of the Aiel that fights at Shayol Ghul. After dispatching several of the light's enemies he stumbles across the deformed Graendal, who uses Compulsion to enslave him. Under Graendal's power he acts as one of her many guards. In an attempt to defeat the Forsaken Graendal, Aviendha, Amys and Cadsuane track her down. Cornered Graendal sends her guards at them, including, unknown to Aviendha, Rhuarc. Forced to kill her attacker Aviendha was horrified to learn, upon removing his veil, that she had killed her clan chief. In an attempt to come to terms with his death she tells herself that it was not truly Rhuarc, as Rhuarc died the moment Graendal touched him.
