Cairhien


Rand left Lord Dobraine in charge of Cairhien, but Dobraine was recently attacked. He teeters near death from weakness at the moment, but Rand refuses to cave to the demand of some to name Toram Riatin as his steward...mainly because Toram is dead (Lan killed him in Far Madding). As far as Rand is concerned, the Sun Throne belongs to Elayne and all she has to do is claim it. In addition to the nobles, there are several other characters listed, including the scientists at Rand's school in Cairhien.
