Stunning is a weave formed with the One Power, it is very painful and it is used to stun and to paralyze an adversary. The male version of this weave is formed by Spirit and Fire, as was demonstrated by Osan'gar. Another version is formed by Spirit, Air, Water and a touch of Fire used by the Red Ajah, to stun and capture male channelers. Because male channelers are usually stronger than female channelers, an Aes Sedai alone would normally not be capable of maintaining a shield over a male channeler, posing a possible danger when hunting for False Dragons or maddened male channelers. This is overcome by stunning them to be shielded later by a circle of six for transport to the White Tower and gentling.
