Who is Osan'gar?

All right, everyone including myself is inclined to the belief that Dashiva is Osan'gar, but I'd like to throw this out there just because it is an interesting parallel. Jahar Narishma could be Osan'gar. Narishma appears in the same book that Osan'gar appears (Lord of Chaos) and causes some excitement among the Asha'man because he has the "spark" which I would imagine Aginor/Osan'gar would have been born with. Narishma at times acts a little odd; it is mentioned that he sees things at much more than face value, and understands some of the political intrigue that Rand is involved in. The most telling point of this suggestion however is the fact that Narishma is Arafellin and one of the biggest clues to the identity of Osan'gar is that his body come from one of the Borderland nations - a group which Arafel happens to be a part of. I thought I'd just throw that out there to cause a few waves. Tell me what you think.

wotmania says: As far as I am concerned, any Asha'man who comes from the Borderlands might very well be Osan'gar. I do not know if Aginor/Osan'gar was born with the spark or not - there is certainly no reason to assume all the Forsaken were born with it. But Narishma has quite a few personality quirks - and I think Osan'gar would probably have a few quirks (being revived from the dead would tend to do that). This might be the case - I look forward to Osan'gar revealing himself.
