And here I am again, your favourite sister of the Blue is back on the track with another blogpost. This time it concerns people who I was absolutely convinced were Darkfriends.
Number one on the list is Sorilea. She was one of the characters who were central enough to show up so often - in a Light-serving, positive manner - that she could rarely be suspected of another allegiance. However, as Shaidar Haran had Elza Penfell remove the wards surrounding the male a'dam, I was convinced Sorilea - who had been shown the wards by Cadsuane - had finally spilled the guts to us, showing her true allegiance. Too bad I pinned out wrong. I still think the case went unresolved. Also, her interest in the Car'a'carn was a bit too great to be entirely without suspicion, much like Elza Penfell's zealous guard proved to serve a shadowy cause.
Another character who went under the looking glass was Covril, but later on it turned out that she had truly only wished to preserve her people. Maybe the fact that she spoke against joining the humans in the Last Battle at the Great Stump was not enough evidence.
And Annoura, who by the end of the Last Battle became one of my favourites - I like dedicated characters - also sounded way to suspicious when answering Perrin about her having private discussions with Masema.
Curiously, it never even occurred to me that women like Moria Karentanis, Sheriam or Verin would be Black Ajah. So I missed those, but I suspected Covril. Oh please.
Anyone else had similar ideas on who may secretly serve the Dark?
