Noal Charin is an old man that Mat spots in Ebou Dar. Over the course of his travels, Mat runs into Charin many times. Finally, they meet face to face after Mat's fight with the gholam. The old man is identified as Noal Charin and knows everything there is to know about the travels of Jain Farstrider. This leads Mat, Olver, and Talmanes to believe that Noal is actually Jain Farstrider himself.
Noal is tentatively accompanying Mat and Thom to rescue Moiraine from the Tower of Ghenjei, the only opening to the Finn's world from Randland.
