In my latest re-reading I've noticed some beautiful connections between these two characters. For one we know little of Stave's connection to his sons but we do know his deep rooted loss concerning his mind melding with the rest of the "Masters". By helping Linden he is giving up a connection with his sons, a connection that is exactly what Linden is fighting for with her own son.

Just recently I had suggested that one possible meaning of "Stave" is that, like a staff, he props Linden up.

Spew Doesnīt it say somewhere that Linden realises that the haruchai gets this weird feeling about a perticular women when he feels the time is right... I canīt remember the exact wordings - doesnīt have the book. But they are in her room at Revelstone
But thatīs what Cail follows to the merewifes and this is how Stave feels for Linden?

I think that's definitely the meaning Donaldson was going for.

I would like to know where this is... I agree about the stave bit propping Linden up, but I was definitely getting a Stave/Linden vibe during the whole book.

BHAHAHAHAHAHAH. XD

Stave props her up, and why refuse a Master's puissant stave while that bastard Covenant only romps around the Arch of Time, not bothering to grant her the proper Wild Magic she yearns for. Wink

were it not for unforgettable characters like Stave and Liand I might not have burned an orgiastic swath through these books, as I did in my youth for the first two series. Genuinely moving, and impossible to be so without Linden as a foil, so take that, THOOLAH! Wink

That was wonderful! I, like a few others it seems, have been hoping that Linden would forget about her past relationship and see other possibilities. Though, I highly doubt such a relationship would work out. Just imagine the arguments over lost honour if she took out the trash by accident.
