EWoT:Peral Torval was an Asha'man and one of Mazrim Taim's men. 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.
