Reimon is a young Tairen Lord and a member of the Band of the Red Hand.


He is broad-shouldered with a dark beard, trimmed and oiled to a point.


He chases the latest fashions almost as assiduously as he chases women, both of which come a close second to his love of gambling.

He smokes a pipe.

He is only foolish sometimes, though he won't listen to commoners.

He has a jovial nature and smiles and laughs a great deal.


In Tear and CairhienEdit

We first encounter Reimon in the Stone of Tear as one of the young lords playing cards with Mat Cauthon. He was present when the bubble of evil caused Mat's cards to come to life.[1]

If it weren't for the fact that the Aiel followed the Dragon Reborn, he would want to use the Defenders to clear them out of the Stone. This is an idle boast, however. No army Tear could raise would be able to evict the Aiel.

He mentions that the Atha'an Miere have docked a ship in Tear and he would like to see one of their ships - the others suggest that all he wants to look at are the Sea Folk women.

He is eager at the prospect of rumors of the Dragon Reborn declaring war against Illian and of conquering the whole world in his name.

Later he is part of the escort that greets Rand al'Thor when he enters Cairhien after the battle with the Shaido.

In the Band of the Red HandEdit

Reimon goes on to join the Band of the Red Hand and leads the Fifth Squadron, also known as "Reimon's Eagles."[2]

After the rapid expansion of the Band in Murandy, Reimon now leads a full Banner. As a result, Mat promotes him to Banner-General.

Talmanes Delovinde gives his reasons for leaving Estean Andiama in charge of the rest of the Band as being that Reimon and Carlomin refuse to listen to the advice of a commoner. After Mat places Daerid Ondin above them, he says that they will either take orders from him or go home.

Reimon laughs at Tuon's inquiry about Mat being a Lord and says that Mat is only a Lord to them, and that is enough.

When Reimon and the others meet up with Mat and his party, they bow in deep respect to the Aes Sedai with him. Tuon is shocked to see him also bow to Bethamin Zeami and Seta Zarbey.

He makes a raid on a Seanchan supply camp defended by Altaran conscripts to gain much needed supplies for the Band.
