"Varilin and Takima glared at one another like two maidservants supporting their mistresses, a long-legged wading bird in a scowling match with a wren." (Egwene; A Crown of Swords, Chapter 11).
"'I wish Varilin and that lot surprised me, Mother. Discounting the Blue, six Sitters from five Ajahs fled the Tower after Elaida carried out her coup,' her mouth twisted slightly on the word, 'and here we have one from each of those five. I was in Tel'aran'rhiod last night, in the Tower - '" (Siuan to Egwene; Crossroads of Twilight, Chapter 18).
