WoT If... the Dark One Can't Touch the Dead? in Theory Blog Posted August 8, 2013 Daedelus, you're completely right. Naturally, I don't want to think of anyone from the Two Rivers as being a Darkfriend, but it is a possibility. That would be a good reason for the Dark One to have her soul. However, I still don't think Ishy would have been able to have access to it at that time.
