When the fighting with the Seanchan begins at Falme, Bayle Domon waits as long as he can for Egwene, Elayne, Min, and Nynaeve. When he sees a grolm, Aedwin jumps for an axe and raises it over a mooring cable. Bayle Domon seizes the axe and grabs Aedwin by the throat, claiming that they will not leave until he (Bayle) says they can leave.
