** Arad Doman **

Lord Rodel Ituralde, the Wolf, represents the Domani in the WoT thus far. Jordan mentions the presence of helmet and breastplate, steel-backed gauntlets, and longsword <CoT: Prologue, 15, 17, Glimmers of the Pattern>. Lord Shimron also appears in a breastplate <CoT: Prologue, 21, Glimmers of the Pattern>. Still, the "creak of leather and metal" Ituralde hears suggests that leather is part of the standard Domani body armor, whether under steel, or with hardened leather as the sole defence for the common soldier <CoT: Prologue, 17, Glimmers of the Pattern>.

Sword and Hand sigil, Arad Doman The longsword reappears in Lord Wakeda's fist <CoT: Prologue, 22, Glimmers of the Pattern>, and a sword appears on the Domani sigil, right <RJWoT: 30, 271, The Other Nations> - undoubtedly one of their primary weapons. The sword pictured on the right is no longsword; the rank-and-file fight in formation, and for them, a shorter sword would seem more likely. Finally, like most nations, the Domani use archers; Ituralde worries they'll "feather [him] with arrows" <CoT: Prologue, 20, Glimmers of the Pattern>.
