Current Events

Currently, Moghedien views herself as THE Chosen and leader of all those who serve the Dark. She is soon to find how much work being a self-proclaimed Nae'blis really is.

Before the Bonding Ceremony in Tar Valon, there were near simultaneous assassination attempts on the M'Hael and Amyrlin Seat. These attempts were carried out by two separate factions within the Darkfriend ranks and were basically attempts to "one up" the other. This competition foils Moghedien's carefully laid plans and causes only the M'Hael to be assassinated before bonding with the Amyrlin Seat. The unsuccessful assassins, however, left clues that point to each Tower as the culprit, concealing the Darkfriends' involvement while sowing discord between the Towers.

Julian Damodred was the only witness to the murder of Jadin Al'Vyron, the newly elected leader of the Black Tower. He believes the Aes Sedai are innocent, but many doubt him.

Further complicating matters, candidates to become the new M'Hael have been dissappearing. There are even whispers that Julian might have something to do with that and want to keep control of the Black Tower to himself.

At the White Tower, there is suspicion that the Red Ajah were the perpetrators, even among some members of the Red Ajah.

Darkfriend Factions

There are three factions within the Darkfriends in the Westlands, each technically under Moghedien, and led by one or more canon characters:

The Black Ajah is headed by Avyanna Sarat and is based in the White Tower.

The Shadow Legion, once led by Atal, is now leaderless with most of its members in the Black Tower forced to flee after the Tower War.

The Dark Assasins are under the direction of Zamon, aided by Liandrin and Alviarin, based in the Blight.

Chaos continues to be an issue within both Towers as a result of Jadin al'Vyron's assassination.

Agents affiliated with the Shadow work to stir up suspicion, particularly against the Red Ajah, in an attempt to cast blame on them for the death of the M'Hael.

They also assassinate potential candidates for M'Hael to leave the Black Tower weak and divided, as well as to increase the chances that a member of the Shadow Legion ascends to the role.

Some of these candidates are, instead, secretly captured and transported to Seanchan to continue building their army.

Moderate Red Ajah sisters are also targeted for assassination to cement the myth that this comes from hardline Red Ajah, while making the Red suspicious of everyone else.

This will, in the end, result in the Red Ajah and the Fire Legion being forced to work together to preserve both Towers, ending the Red's prohibition on cooperation.
