Rand is wearing a red coat and he is looking directly ahead of him. Text reads: Did you know? The Chair of Remorse is the main reason that there is so little crime in Tar Valon.

The Chair of Remorse
The Chair of Remorse is a ter'angreal used for punishing criminals. It's a large block of gray, hard as steel everywhere except the top. Those who sits on it sinks into it and the top molds itself around them. The “chair” has only one break, a palm sized rectangular hole on one side with tiny notches carved around it. Channeling into this, the person sitting on the chair experiences selected consequences of their crimes. The Chair is the main reason that there is so little crime in Tar Valon.

Choedan Kal
Choedan Kal, the most powerful sa'angreal known to have existed. Two gargantuan statues, attuned to saidar and saidin, constructed during the War of Power to be used against the Dark One. The amount of Power that could be channeled through these was immense and many believed it enough to destroy the world. Their use was favoured by Latra Posae Decume and she was able to persuade the entire female Aes Sedai to support her plan rather than a rival plan by Lews Therin to fight the Dark One

Winter's Heart bu Rovert Jordan
The titles Forsaken and Chosen applied to ALL Aes Sedai who turned to the Shadow in the Age of Legends, not just the thirteen who were imprisoned. The title Dreadlord came about during the Trolloc Wars, because the Darkfriend channelers in that time didn't dare claim the title Chosen.
