    After a year of difficult training, Tigraine took on the name Shaiel ("woman who is dedicated" in the Old Tongue) and made her vows to the spear and was adopted into the Chumai Sept of the Taardad Aiel. She later fell in love with Janduin, Clan Chief of the Taardad, and was a member of the party he led to find and punish Laman Damodred for desicrating the Avendoraldera Tree

    Since Loki could not remember her Aiel name I'll post a question for you guys.

    Question: What is a Jumara?

    A jumara is a type of shadowspawn, and also the second month in the calander that is now used in Robert Jordan's world. I found this info in the wheel of time atlas. Take your pick as to the one you were asking

    You're right. I was talking about the latter, not the calendar. But since you looked it up and got the answers for both, you get to ask the next question. Here's the answers anyway for those that want to know:

    The Calendar:

    Taisham | Jumara | Saban | Aine
    Adar | Saven | Amadaine
    Tammaz | Maigdhal | Choren
    Shaldine | Nesan | Danu

    The shadowspan I was asking about:
    A jumara is a worm-like Shadowspawn. Created by Aginor during the War of Power, jumaras are one of the least known and perhaps most dangerous Shadowspawn ever made. Their presence is familiar in the Borderlands, where they are called Worms. No jumara has been seen outside of the Blight in recent times.

    All right next question. Not to hard, but it has been a while since I have read any of the books. What was Lanfear's real first name?

    Semirhage, Graendal, Mesaana, Moghedien and Lanfear, oh and are you counting Aran'gar? or just the originals as they were in the Age of Legend?

    Anyway 5 originals out of 13, and here's the question:
    Who succeeded Pedron Niall as head of the white cloaks?

    Simche you have to wait to be told if your answer is right before asking a question, but your answer is correct. So the answer to your question is Aemon Valda

    NO..not Aemon. Aemon was the King of Manetheren. It's Eamon Valda. But I'll assume that you had a typo. hehe.
