Jenare Balmaen is an Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah.

Appearance Edit

She is pale and sturdy. She has a pale, square face[1].

Strength and Abilities Edit

Jenare's level of strength in saidar is described by "The Wheel of Time Companion" as 25(13). She is not strong enough to open a gateway to Travel.

Activities Edit

She was a part of the group of fifty-one sisters, led by Toveine Gazal, sent by Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan to take out the Black Tower[2]. Jenare was part of the group of ten sisters led by Toviene herself when they were both shielded and captured and bonded by the Asha'man[3]. Jenare was bonded by Welyn Kajima, a fact for which she blamed Toveine.

Elaida abandons the Aes Sedai sent to capture the Black Tower, including Jenare, at Alviarin's suggestion [4].

Jenare, along with several of the other captured Aes Sedai, blames Toveine Gazal for her capture[5].

Lemai and Desandre initiate orders that all captive sisters must achieve cordial status in the relationships with their captors in a ploy to lull the men into becoming amenable to them[6].

She Traveled to Tear with Kajima to join up with Rand. Her relationship with Kajima seems a good one, at least on the surface, as Rand al'Thor observes the two of them laughing and joking together[1].

She watches from a distance Rand's meeting with the Daughter of the Nine Moons and Travels in as backup when it is revealed that the Daughter of the Nine Moons is actually Semirhage[1].

When Kajima and Jenare return to Black Tower, it is suspected that she, along with Kajima, was Turned to the Shadow.[7] This is later confirmed by "The Wheel of Time Companion".
