A doubt in Therava's beliefs in Wheel of Time Books Posted November 19 she probably believed it, or close enough. i don't think she'd have gone rogue with the shaido otherwise. rand appeared in the waste with 2 aes sedai (as far as the aiel knew). aes sedai have strange knowledge, so assuming that rand was instructed by aes sedai was not a stretch. as for couladin, maybe she assumes he lied to everyone to avoid spreading the secret of rhuidean. or maybe she had doubts on couladin too, but just couldn't follow rand.
