Occupation Ship captain

Agni Neres is the captain of the Riverserpent and a smuggler, originally from Ebou Dar.


He is a tall and bony man who has ears that stand out from his head. He has a dour cast to his narrow face.


He is married and has several children who all live in Ebou Dar.[1]


Captain Neres is hired by Galadedrid Damodred to take Elayne Trakand and Nynaeve al'Meara from Samara. Galad only has enough to pay for their way to Boannda. When Elayne and Nynaeve arrive with Birgitte Silverbow, Thomdril Merrilin, Juilin Sandar, Ragan, Uno Nomesta and several Shienarans, Captain Neres demands payment for them as well. Nynaeve then bullies Neres into taking on a large group of refugees on the docks, including Nicola Treehill, Areina Nermasiv and "Marigan."

Elayne and Nynaeve take Neres' cabin, about which he is not happy. To further Neres' unease and frustration, Elayne and Nynaeve force him to cast his cargo into the river. Wincing every time more of his cargo is swallowed by the river, he brightens when Nynaeve directs that all of his fabrics be left in the hold. His face turns very sour when he realizes that she means them for bedding.
