EWoT: Chiape

"Shaofan and Chiape insist the deaths are natural. The Will of the Pattern, they call it. To them everything is the Will of the Pattern."
   —Graendal on Chiape

Chiape is, or was, the Sh'boan of Shara, until she, along with Sh'botay Shaofan, were kidnapped by Graendal as part of a ruse.


Chiape is a very beautiful woman with very dark skin.


Graendal kidnapped both Shaofan and Chiape and placed them under very heavy Compulsion. Graendal did this only to display them to Sammael.[1]


The disappearance of Shaofan and Chiape from Shara, as well as the rebirth of the Dragon, causes a power vacuum in their native land and war in the country.[2] It is unknown if she was in Natrin's Barrow when Rand al'Thor used balefire against it.[3]
