Demandred in Wheel of Time Books Posted August 4, 2011 · Edited August 4, 2011 by True Source Creator I do think Demandred had influence over Masema, but that wasn't the only thing he was up to. Before Masema dies, he mentions that he had seen the Dragon come to him and tell him to kill Perrin Aybara. This was shortly after Moridin's proclamation to the Forsaken that they were to hunt down Mat and Perrin. Demandred was the only other male Forsaken, so he fits most obviously. Of course, a female Forsaken could have done it using Mask of Mirrors to make her look like a man, but I doubt it: Mesaana was too focused on the White Tower to give a rat's ass about the two ta'veren; Graendal was hiding out in Arad Doman; Semirhage had just been captured; Aran'gar had fled the rebel Sedai. That would leave Cyndane and Moghedian, both of whom were "in the south" according to Graendal (TGS), but it seems more logical that it would be Demandred. EDIT: That's not to say that Masema necessarily saw a man, just an Illusion. He was probably too mad and perhaps somewhat Compulsed to even know what it was, but he would think it to be the Dragon because whoever it was is the one making him that way, and Demandred fits the bill.
