In POD 1, Teslyn is in Ebou Dar with Joline Maza. When she encounters Nynaeve, Elayne and the others, she says that she has decided not to tell Elaida what they are doing, but warns them to be careful. Elayne upbraids her for her condescension as well as supporting Elaida as Amyrlin. Nynaeve tries to warn her about Moghedien and the gholam, but Teslyn dismisses it as fantasy.
