Barim Halle is an old warhand under the command of Gareth Bryne as a senior squadman.
He is hard and wiry with a habit of stuffing his tongue in his cheek when he has something to say.
He sets off with Bryne to track down Siuan Sanche when she breaks her oath to him. This leads him all the way from Andor to Salidar where the Rebel Aes Sedai are coming together. He is sent to Ebou Dar to help recruit men for the Rebel Aes Sedai army.
