Narenwin Barda is an Aes Sedai of the Yellow Ajah.

Appearance Edit

She is thin, very short and with a square face. She usually is so quiet that people could forget she was there; she was also mousy around other sisters.

Strength and abilities Edit

In "The Wheel of Time Companion" her level of strength is described between 18(6) and 19(7) which is enough to open alone suitable gateway to Travel.

Being a Yellow sister usually indicates also to be skilled in Healing.

History Edit

Narenwin is 87 years old; she was born in 913 NE and went to the Tower in 928 NE. After spending twelve years as a novice and eight as Accepted she was raised to the shawl in 948 NE.

For a time she was the assistant to the head of the Yellow Ajah eyes-and-ears; during that period she recruited Ronde Macura as a spy and punished her severely for asking about the Black Ajah.

She later became herself head of the eyes-and-ears system, and she has been so for years, and rose high in the Yellow hierarchy.

Once a week Narenwin would allow children to bring their pets to her in the Tower, so that she could heal them.

She has no Warder.

Activities Edit

Ronde Macura reported to Narenwin as an eyes-and-ears in Mardecin, Amadicia.[1]

Nynaeve and Elayne were sure that Ronde Macura would report them to Narenwin so they changed their plans and adopted disguises. [2]

She was sent by Elaida do Avriny a'Roihan to Dorlan to take command of the Aes Sedai there. She also gave orders to Gawyn Trakand and the Younglings from Elaida[3]: they have to take guerilla action against the rebel army, with the aid of the sisters there.

She met with Katerine Alruddin, who Traveled back to Dorlan to inform the sisters that the Rebel Aes Sedai Amyrlin Seat Egwene al'Vere had been captured.[4] Katerine also taught them the weave to Travel so they could be more effective against the rebels.

Gawyn also heard from Katerine news of Egwene and left Dorlan suddenly, leaving Narenwin without the captain of her troops.
