Mandarb, "Blade" in the Old Tongue, is Lan's horse, a tall, fierce, black chested stallion (TEotW, Ch. 4). He is trained for battle, and unless Lan hands a person his reins, will not let anyone too close (TEotW, Ch. 37). He rides Mandarb throughout the series and Nynaeve takes both of them to World's End in the hope that Lan will gain an army to follow him (KoD, Ch. 20). When Lan tries to cross the Saldaean border in disguise, Kaisal recognises Mandarb because Lan neglects to disguise him, and thus identifies Lan (Towers of Midnight, Chapter 42)
