"Where men have built ten houses together, there is the potential for violence. Since the Breaking the Tuatha'an have known this. Safety lies in our wagons, and in always moving, always seeking the song."
   — Raen to Perrin after his suggestion the Tuatha'an move to Emond's Field

External summary

<<<   Among the Tuatha'an    >>>
Setting: Two Rivers

Point of view: Perrin Aybara

Perrin and the Two Rivers lads he leads were ambushed by Trollocs. The survivors, many wounded approach the Tuatha'an wagons. The Aiel will not approach those they call the 'Lost Ones' and leave to make their own camp. Perrin is surprised to see that the Tinker's leader is Raen, the same man he met with Elyas Machera.[1] Raen, his wife Ila and the other Tinkers help bandage and poultice the wounded. Perrin tries to convince Raen to move his group to Emond's Field, but avoiding villages is too ingrained to the Tinker way of life.

Ila is not skilled enough to remove the arrow in Perrin's side. Faile assures her there is someone in Emond's Field that can do this, if they can keep Perrin alive to reach there. Ila and Faile bandage Perrin's wound, then Ila leaves to sleep under the wagon with Raen. Perrin begins to chastise himself over his poor leadership that let twenty-seven of his folk get killed. Faile tries to reassure him with a couple of quotes from her father, but it doesn't work. Aram enters and comments on Perrin's eyes and the relationship to wolves. He then asks after Egwene. Perrin is rude to him and tells him to go away.

Perrin finally asks Faile who her father is. She responds, Davram of House Bashere, Lord of Bashere, Tyr and Sidona, Guardian of the Blightbortder, Defender of the Heartland, Marshal-General to Queen Tenobia of Saldaea. And her uncle. As this begins to sink in he realizes Faile is a Lady. Faile explains that as heir to her father she had a duty to learn how to manage the estates, but found it dull, so she ran away to be a Hunter of the Horn. Faile then asks Perrin what Aram meant about running with wolves.

So Perrin explains how he came to have golden eyes, better senses and that he can talk with wolves. Faile finally gets him to drink the sleeping potion and he falls asleep.
