Raefar Kisman was an Asha'man. He had reached the rank of Asha'man and was one of Mazrim Taim's men.


He was younger than Rand al'Thor, of average height and pale for a Tairen.


He was from Tear.


He carried away Peral Torval after he had been clubbed unconsious by Mazrim Taim. He fought in the Battle of Dumai's Wells. After Rand chose Dashiva to stay with him after Dumai's Wells, Taim stalked away, calling for Gedwyn, Rochaid, Torval and Kisman.[1] After the attack on the Sun Palace, he deserted.[2] His name was placed on the deserter's list, to the surprise of Androl Genhald.[3] He was commanded by Taim, Demandred and Moridin to kill Rand. After the assassination attempt on Rand's life by the rogue Asha'man, Taim reported to Rand that Kisman was a deserter. He followed Rand's trail to Far Madding where he confronted Rand. He was forced to flee after accidently killing his partner Manel Rochaid. He was later stabbed by Padan Fain with the Shadar Logoth dagger and died soon after.[4]
