Mysterious Aiel pops up in the three fold land and whispers doubts to our rather silly heroine{who is not that disturbed about the whole thingamajig,she goes to sleep feeling troubled lol}.

How convenient.

Since we{and I fully include myself}at Dragonmount are conspiracy theorists extraordinaire , who exactly was our mystery tipper with the oh-so altruistic motives {and killer timing}and what exactly was she about ?

People think she's Verin. There's even an eyewink in her comment about Wise Ones and apprentices.

That seems a bit thin.

Did Verin ever meet Aviendha? enough to take such interest in her?

Aviendha's in the middle of the Waste, half way from nowhere to nowhere, how did she find her?

What motive does Verin have to do such a thing?

 

The whole scene has an 'unreal' feel. Nakomi's mysterious coming and going, cooking food that reminds Aviendha of her mother, hte line of comments tuned exactly to all the issues that bother her, the peculiar description "I am far from my roof, yet not far at all. Perhaps it is far from me." . It all accumulates to a dream-like experience, and we all know that there are ways in Randland to induce various dream-like states of mind.

As far as I know Verin has never met Aviendha. Aviendha had gone to Salidar when Verin was in Caemlin.

Verin left Caemlin for Dumas Well. From there she went to Carhien, Far Madding, Shadar Logoth and Algarin's estate in Tear. After she left there she had trouble to reach the White Tower, ending in a meeting with Mat.

Aviendha went from Salidar to Ebou Dar and then to Caemlin. Verin made a gateway for Mat after Aviendha had already left Caemlin.

 

I consider the possibility that Nakomi is a Jenn Aiel. There are people who will object because the Jenn are extincted. I don't know why they think so, because I couldn't find any hard proof of it. Perhaps their ideas are based on the next quotation.

"Our days dwindle," Mordaine said. "A day will come when the Jenn are no more, and only you will remain to remember the Aiel. You must remain, or all is for nothing, and lost."

This quote doesn't say anything about extinction. It is just an interpretation, but another interpretation is possible as well.

Could the Jenn have left to hide themselves?

 

"There are some places one can not enter in Tel'aran'rhiod," Seana said. "Rhuidean. Ogier stedding. A few others. What happens there is shielded from a dreamwalker's eyes."

So, Rhuidean cannot be entered in the Dreamworld, but is it possible that the Jenn are hiding there.

 

Now we have 2 options about the Jenn.

They are extincted.

They are hiding

Nakomi can only be a Jenn if the second option is right.
