  1. Forsaken

    In the fictional world of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time fantasy series, the Forsaken are the most powerful and favored servants of the Dark One. Most were formerly Aes Sedai, but became corrupted by the desire for power and immortality, and so pledged their souls to the Dark One. At the beginning of the series there are thirteen Forsaken, though at least twelve more existed during the War of Power before they were killed. The surviving Forsaken were sealed inside Shayol Ghul when Lews Therin Telamon and his Hundred Companions sealed the hole in the Dark One's prison. It was this act that ended the War of Power, but also caused the taint on saidin, the male half of the One Power. The leader of the Forsaken is named Nae'blis, and is considered to be second only to the Dark One in both power and position.
