** The Seanchan: Sul'dam and Damane **


Jordan first portrays sul'dam and damane fountaining water and fire about Bayle Domon's ship Spray: together, the most powerful weapon that the Seanchan possess:
    "... two women ... one drawing the other ... by a leash of silvery metal as she climbed aboard. The leash went from a bracelet worn by the first woman to a collar around the neck of the second. He could not tell whether it was woven or jointed - it seemed somehow to be both - but it was clearly of a piece with both bracelet and collar. The first woman gathered the leash in coils as the other came onto the deck. The collared woman wore plain dark gray and stood with her hands folded and her eyes on the planks under her feet. The other had red panels bearing forked, silver lightning bolts on the breast of her blue dress and on the sides of her skirts, which ended short of the ankles of her boots." <TGH: 29, 422, Seanchan>

A few details may be added to this detailed description: sul'dam wear soft boots, and the blue of their dresses is a dark blue. <TGH: 45, 624, Blademaster; RJWoT: 17, 159, Seanchan>
