First published in 1990, Robert Jordan began an epic series called The Wheel of Time. For the next seventeen years, readers experienced eleven books of rich and expansive storytelling. However, on September 16th, 2007, Robert Jordan passed away due to cardiac amyloidosis. His legacy is carried on by Brandon Sanderson, a fellow fantasy author and Wheel of Time fan. With the help of Harriet Rigney, Robert Jordan's wife and editor, Mr. Sanderson continues a journey over twenty years in the making.
All manner of characters populate the vast world of the series. With thirteen books and a prequel so far, The Wheel of Time series contains thousands of characters, from Aes Sedai, Warders, and nobility, to humble farmers and maids, from powerful warriors to those sworn to peace in all they do.
Berelain sur Paendrag Paeron of House Paeron is the First of Mayene. Berelain claims to be a descendent and heir of Artur Hawkwing, through his grandson Tyrn sur Paendrag Mashera. In Mayene it is claimed that Tyrn evaded the assassination attempt that killed his mother and was raised in secrecy in Mayene for his own safety. The Firsts of Mayene claim an unbroken line of succession from Tyrn and his daughter Miselle, and through him to Hawkwing. This claim is not taken seriously outside of Mayene. Berelain's first appearance, when she tries to seduce Rand al'Thor in an effort to obtain political influence, ends with disastrous results; she then goes after Perrin Aybara with no better apparent effect. She does earn the enmity of Faile Bashere, a woman interested in Perrin, however; Berelain believes that it will "amuse" her to take Perrin away from Faile. Later, Rand places Berelain in a position of stewardship over the city of Cairhien after it is ravaged by the Shaido Aiel. Upon re-encountering Perrin, Berelain renews her attempts at seducing Perrin which results in interpersonal problems with Faile, now his wife. Faile's subsequent kidnapping by the Shaido has thrown this entire dynamic into even greater chaos. She later neglects her duties in Cairhien but gets a stern reminder from Rhuarc who treats her as a daughter. When Rand is captured by the White Tower Aes Sedai she not only sends men to Rand's aid but she uncovers evidence linking Colavaere Saighan to both Lord Maringil and Meilan Mendiana's murders when she makes her move for the Sun Throne.
