to be wounded on the day the Aes Sedai died. He was going to be hurt more
than the blood told, hurt somehow deeper than wounds to his flesh. That
bloody mask again. More: a sword floated above his head, and a banner
waved behind it. The long-hilted sword, like those most Warders used, had
a heron engraved on its slightly curved blade, symbol of a blademaster,

banner bore Gawyn's sigil of the charging White Boar, but on a field of
green rather than the red of Andor.
