The Forsaken


As of the end of Crossroads of Twilight, there are only eight Forsaken left. Ishamael has been reborn as Moridin, Lanfear has been reborn as Cyndane, and Balthamel has been reborn as Aran'gar. Aginor was killed, reborn as Osan'gar, and balefired while Rand and Nynaeve were cleansing saidin. Be'lal, Rahvin, and Sammael have been balefired. Asmodean has been killed, and unless someone can give a good reason for bringing him back, he will remain dead.
