General

Zakai is a Seanchan damane who battles against Rand, the Asha'man and the Illianers when Rand brings his forces to fight the Seanchan.

Zakai's "tight-faced" sul'dam says that she is a good damane.

(Reference: The Path of Daggers, Chapter 24).

Timeline

  • Zakai is used to battle Rand's forces when they attack the Seanchan (TPoD, Ch. 24).
  • The battle leaves her weeping and her sul'dam tries to calm her down by stroking her hair and crooning to her (TPoD, Ch. 24).
  • Zakai's sul'dam defends her against charges that it was the damane who made the lightning that struck the Seanchan and Taraboner forces during the battle (TPoD, Ch. 24).

Quotes

"She was on her feet in an instant, shaking her free fist and striding as far toward the Taraboner as the leash attached to her other wrist would allow. Her damane lay in a weeping heap. 'I will not hear this dog's words against my Zakai! She is a good damane! A good damane!'" (Zakai's sul'dam defends her; The Path of Daggers, Chapter 24)
