EWoT: Peral Torval

Peral Torval was an Asha'man and one of Mazrim Taim's men.[1] He was a native of Tarabon.


He was middle aged with a sharp nose and sneering mouth.

The Black Tower

Peral Torval was the first recruit from whom Rand heard the name Black Tower. During one of his many visits there, Rand met Torval, who sneered upon learning who Rand was and didn't think him so powerful. Mazrim Taim quickly had him disciplined, demonstrating the hardness that was expected as one of the Asha'man. He was one of the Asha'man who particapated in Rand's rescue attempt in the Battle of Dumai's Wells. Despite his insolent attitude, Torval was among the first to rise to the rank of full Asha'man.

He Traveled to where Rand has set up camp just outside Illian and gave a message from Taim. He still had an arrogant attitude but seemed very afraid of Taim.


Torval, along with Charl Gedwyn, Manel Rochaid, and Raefar Kisman, was part of the plot to kill Rand in Cairhien. Rand found his corpse in Far Madding. He had been killed by Padan Fain.
