Is Alviarin one of the Chosen?

Towards the end of the series we see Shaidar Haran mark Alviarin out and give her his protection from Mesaana. If Shaidar Haran is an extension of the Dark One, would that make her a new Chosen if she had the spine to stand up and take it? Or was there a required ritual? I recall somebody taking Asmodean to the Bore to become one, but the Dark One might not have been out the way he is with Shaidar Haran.

No.

 

Week 2 Question: Is the mark that Alviarin received from Shaidar Haran the same as that the Forsaken received from the Dark One? If so, is she now a Forsaken, or some sort of lesser Chosen?

 

Robert Jordan Answers: The mark that Alviarin received from Shaidar Haran was not the same as that given to the Forsaken, though it shares one function: Shadowspawn will recognize her as belonging to the Dark One. They will not obey her as they will the Forsaken, however, but she doesn't have to worry about one trying to kill her, either. She is not any sort of lesser Chosen. You might think of it more like the tattoo some people get put inside the ear of their dog, an identification so others will know who the dog belongs to as soon as they see it.
