Kin Tovere is a craftsman that fled to Cairhien during the Shaido invasion on the city. He is now building lens and looking glasses for Rand's army. He has invented a telescope that can see farther than any of the previous scopes. Mat uses one of the scopes to view the battle prior to the final Shaido confrontation in Cairhien.
