This article is about the Warder. For the alias used by Rand al'Thor, see Tomas Trakand.

EWoT: Tomas

Tomas was Warder to Verin Mathwin, an Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. He was her second Gaidin, bonded years after her first Warder died.


He was short and stocky with graying hair[1].


Tomas was a Darkfriend before meeting Verin. He wanted to turn back to the Light but found that the Dark One wouldn't let him go. Verin bonds him and offers him the chance to fight the Dark One by helping her study the Black Ajah from the inside, which he agrees to[2].


He was part of the Amyrlin's escort to Fal Dara[3]. For some reason he didn't accompany Verin when she joined Rand al'Thor and the others when they were searching for the Horn of Valere[4] and ended up battling the Seanchan in Falme. Tomas was frantic with worry for Verin's departure. Presumably he returned to Tar Valon with the rest of the party.

He was then present with her when she is in the Two Rivers when Perrin Aybara comes back to confront the Children of the Light.[1] He helped the village in fighting the Shadowspawn army [5][6][7][8].

Tomas stayed for a time with Alanna, Verin, Ivhon and the Two Rivers girls in Culain's Hound in Caemlyn[9][10].

Tomas fought along Verin in the Dumai's Wells battle[11][12].

He then Traveled with Verin and Cadsuane Melaidhrin's party to Far Madding to track down Rand[13][14]. After leaving Far Madding, he stood guard over Min Farshaw and Harine din Togara Two Winds during the Battle near Shadar Logoth[15].

He accompanied Rand and Verin to Algarin Pendaloan's house in Tear, where Rand recovers after cleansing Saidin[16]. He watched Lan Mandragoran and Jahar Narishma practice sword play in the courtyard with the other Warders.

He left with Verin, when she departed from Rand and his company[17].

He is with Verin when she meets with Mat[18][19].

When Verin visited Egwene in the White Tower and confirms that she and Tomas were Darkfriends, she stated that Tomas was spending his last hour of life with his family before dying of the poison he gave himself[2].
