Sea Folk


At the end of CoT, there were more Sea Folk in Tear than Tairens, due to the pending election of a new Mistress of Ships (Nesta din Reas Two Moons was executed by the Seanchan for rebellion). In Illian, there are hundreds of Windfinders (all of whom can channel) gathered, though no one knows why. More Sea Folk have headed back to the Sea Folk islands to spread word of the Coramoor. They will, undoubtedly, play a big role in fights with the Seanchan as well as Tarmon Gai'don. They have agreed to serve Rand, who will deliver all the seas in the world to them...including the seas that are presently ruled by the Seanchan.
