Herid Fel was a philosopher and historian working for Rand in Cairhien, though he's from Andor. He was so focused on his work that he would forget minor things like brushing his hair. He told Rand that the rubble must be cleared away, but before Rand could get clarification on the instructions, Fel was killed. It is assumed that a gholam killed Fel. Min has continued Fel's studies into the Taint, the Seals and the nature of the Dark One's prison.
