Bertain Gallenne was the Lord Captain of Berelain sur Paendrag Paeron's Winged Guards from Mayene.

Appearance Edit

He had graying hair and wore a black eye-patch over his missing eye. He was of medium height. He didn't think about much else except how to attack.

Activities Edit

Finding the Prophet Edit

He accompanied Perrin Aybara and Berelain into Ghealdan to track down Masema Dagar. He accompanied Berelain into Bethal to meet with Queen Alliandre Maritha Kigarin.

He was with Berelain when Perrin found the Darkhound tracks and then accompanied Perrin when he looked over the Shaido Aiel camped in Malden. He went with Perrin and Berelain to So Habor, where they collected grain for their troops.

He was again guarding Berelain when she and Perrin made their deal with the Seanchan. He led the Mayene forces in the Battle of Malden, but his main duty was for him and his men to guard Berelain.

While traveling from Malden, he was with Perrin when they found land that appeared to have been affected by the Blight. Later he attended a meeting with Perrin and others to receive a report on how well the Wise Ones and the Aes Sedai cleaned up the infected land.[1] In that meeting they also decided how the army should deal with the Whitecloaks. During that meeting Seonid and Perrin both confirmed that a Forsaken had occupied Andor for a spell until Rand al'Thor rooted him out. Morgase Trakand, in the personage of Maighdin, was present and requested to be excused.[1]

Encounter with the WhitecloaksEdit

Gallenne was in the army escort provided Perrin as he moved to meet with the Whitecloaks for the first time after Malden. [2]

After Perrin and Slayer battled in Tel'aran'rhiod, he, along with Gerard Arganda, was consulted about where an ambush would be appropriately set up on the road down which they travel. He was also present or nearby when Perrin, with the help of Asha'man Fager Neald and several Wise Ones, constructed his Power-wrought hammer.[3]

He led the Mayene cavalry in defense of the Whitecloaks in the surprise Trolloc attack that occurred shortly after the conclusion of Perrin's trial, and questioned Perrin about what he owed the Whitecloaks. Perrin's response led him to call Perrin "strange" and "an honorable man." [4]

He participated in the parade led by Perrin as they marched off to the Field of Merrilor through a huge gateway formed by Jur Grady, Neald, and several others who could channel.[5]

Gallenne was killed in the battle outside Cairhien against the Shadowspawn army in the Last Battle. Despite the constant arguments he and Arganda had shared, Arganda mourned him deeply and discarded his own helmet in favour of Gallenne's.
