Why Didn't Rand Recognise Tuon?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

During several Rand/Mat Taveren visions, Rand saw a small dark woman with Matt.

The Seanchan accompanying Sermihage found her power-woven disguise believable.

 

Why didn't Rand realise Matt was with either the real Daughter of the Nine Moons or another imposter, at some point after seeing Sermihage's impersonation?

 

???

Well seeing someone briefly a couple of time in a dream and dressed differently is different then seeing them in person.  Also being a bit mad at the time probably didn't help.  My guess with everything he had going on that he had put it out of his mind.

He was pretty focused and determined in regards to brokering a peace with the Seanchan, and saw the Daughter of the Nine Moons as pivotal to said goal.

He saw her well enough in the visions to know it was the same small, dark skinned, short haired female in each different one.

Being mad, or a bit mad, didn't seem to affect his perception or memory in any similar way to mistaking or forgetting who people were.

But I think seeing someone in quick visions is a lot different then seeing that person later with a veil on but also when she was with Mat she was letting her hair grow out.  With everything he had going on, he was just to preoccupied to notice such a thing (such as was it an ambush and making sure min was safe) also the whole seeing her and fight happened pretty quickly.  Rand was also distracted by warnings that someone was channeling and hiding the weaves.

Short answer, probably an oops, longer one, it could've had something to do with the True Power balefire and him realizing he'd used the DO's power. He could've suppressed all associated memories
