Meidani Eschede is an Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah. She has a single Warder, Leonin. She has allied herself with the Salidar Aes Sedai.

Appearance Edit

Meidani is pretty, with dark golden hair, blue eyes and full lips. She is tall and slim, but has a large bust.


Meidani is a quite strong Aes Sedai, in fact she is strong enough to open a gateway to travel. Her strength is 17(5).

History Edit

She was an Accepted in the White Tower during the Aiel War when the Dragon was reborn and thus sent out of Tar Valon by the Amyrlin Tamra for the census of newborn babies.

Later, as a Grey sister, Meidani enjoyed to travel a lot and to help common people, as it is proved by the many gifts from them displayed in her rooms in the White Tower[1].


Spying Edit

Meidani, along with nine other Sisters (the so called "ten ferrets"), were sent back to the White Tower to spy for the Salidar Aes Sedai, and to spread the rumor that the Red Ajah set Logain up as a False Dragon[2][3]. Unfortunately, Zerah Dacan unwillingly betrayed Meidani and the other spies when she was under question by Pevara Tazanovni and Seaine Herimon as being suspected Black Ajah.

Meidani and Elaida were pillow friends as Novices and Yukiri orders Meidani to renew this relationship, but, due to a second betrayal by Beonin Marinye, Elaida is aware that she is a spy. She still allows Meidani to continue with her advances, however. However in another act of betrayal by Beonin, she tells Meidani that Elaida knows that she is a spy[4].

Dinner with the Amyrlins Edit

She is having dinner with Elaida when Egwene al'Vere is invited as well. Egwene requests Meidani to ask for private lessons with her. Meidani is less than impressed with being told what to do by Egwene before having to be reminded that Egwene is her Amyrlin.

Meidani finally summons Egwene for private lessons[1]. Egwene first shows Meidani how to Travel and then manages to find out that some oath has been placed on Meidani preventing her from running away from the White Tower. Egwene then gets Meidani to lead her to the ones that placed the oath on her. She leads Egwene to where Seaine Herimon and the rest of the Black Ajah hunters have based themselves[1]. She is later freed from her oath of obedience; it can be assumed the rest of the ferrets were as well.

She comes to report what is happening in the Hall of the Tower to Egwene and finds Verin Mathwin deceased in Egwene's room. Egwene tells her that both Verin and Alviarin Freidhen are Black Ajah and that the Black Ajah hunters need to take Alviarin into custody and test her with the Oath Rod[5].
