****Warning! This thread contains major spoilers from the ending of Fires of Heaven. Do not read if you want it to be spoiled for you. The classic Who Killed Asmodean thread. A topic that has no definite answer, and will have no definite answer unless RJ tells us (which doesn't look hopeful.) Who do you think killed him? I haven't finished the complete series yet, but after researching around on the net I know that it isn't answered, and that RJ said we could defintely figure it out with hints from Books 1-5. My thoughts are either i) Graendal ii) Lanfear For Graendal, a couple things. She could of been in Caemlyn at the time, as we know Rahvin, Mog, Sammael and her were planning to get Rand. Another point I read on another website while reading up on this topic is pretty interesting point. After Rand balefired Rahvin, he still had fish bites on him. That means it shouldn't of been Rahvin, or else Rand wouldn't of been injured. The only counter point against this is that balefire doesn't work the same in Tel' as it does in the real world. For Lanfear, what other perfect person to get the reaction from Asmodean (You? No!). He had just seen her die the day before. Now I realize she was stuck in the red door frame world (some sites refer to it as finnland), but her motives would be set. She did not want Rand to be stronger than her, and after close battle with Rand, she realized how strong he was (though she didn't know he was using an angreal, but so was she). How did she get out of the world she was in? Maybe she was granted a wish. Not to sure. It's a big point against her being the killer, but it can't be deemed impossible (as far as I can tell). One site a visited had a very good quote: This quote provides that Lanfear had intentions of killing Asmo anyways, in the end. I can't think of any who would be better than this, but of course my opinions aren't to the full knowledge that they can be. Who do you guys believe did it?
