She has wings of white in her dark straight hair. She was about 5'6 tall, cool and dignified with a cool deep voice, large dark eyes. She was handsome rather than pretty and looked to be in her middle years.
Though often cool, when angry her eyes would bulge and her face become engorged with blood.
When she was still Windfinder to Nesta din Reas Two Moons, Mistress of the Ships, she had five fat golden rings in each ear connected by a chain, with another finer chain running to her nose ring, thick with medallions of her clan, among other things.
After Nesta's death, she only retained three rings in each ear and had to remove some of her honor medallions.
Bargain for the Bowl Edit
She meets with Nynaeve al'Meara and Elayne Trakand over the final details of the bargain for the Bowl of the Winds. It is Matrim Cauthon who sorts this out and sends them on their way to the Kin's farm to use it. She observes the use of the bowl, and tries to assert her position over Zaida din Parede Blackwing, who would not allow it. She then travels to Andor and stays in the Royal Palace as a guest of Elayne.
While Elayne is meeting with Dyelin Taravin, Renaile bursts in and demands more Aes Sedai teachers. She in turn is interrupted by the arrival of Mazrim Taim, and she willingly links with Elayne just in case the Asha'man attacks.
When the news of Nesta din Reas Two Moons' death reaches Caemlyn, Renaile is demoted to the lowest rank after apprentice to start all over again. A number of women Renaile offended on her rise in rank now take the opportunity to get back at her.
When Elayne is captured by the Black Ajah, Birgitte Silverbow manages to convince Chanelle and the rest of the Sea Folk Windfinders that without Elayne there is no bargain. They Travel to the area where the Black Ajah are escaping on a wagon with Elayne inside. The strike force rides toward the wagon, but are decimated by balefire from Asne Zeramene. Birgitte finally convinces the Windfinders to actively attack the Black Ajah. The Windfinders all link, with Chanelle in control, and attack the wagon with lightning, killing Asne in the process. They shield all the remaining Black Ajah members and Darkfriends to be taken captive by Elayne's troops.
Egwene sets up a meeting in Tel'aran'riod, which Renaile attends, between Aes Sedai, Sea Folk Windfinders, and Aiel Wise Ones. It is decided at the meeting that Accepted will go and train with the Wise Ones for six months and then they would train with the Sea Folk for a further six months before returning back to the White Tower. They would then make a choice a year later on where they would wish to finish their training. Sea Folk and Wise One apprentices would also go through this training program but to the White Tower and the other channeling faction. It is agreed that for every two Accepted who leave, two Wise One apprentices and two Sea Folk apprentices will be exchanged. The Sea Folk Bargain is also modified so that Aes Sedai sisters no longer have to teach Sea Folk Windfinders anymore and that Sea Folk Aes Sedai can now return back to their homeland and be the channelers who teach the Sea Folk Windfinders. Finally all ter'angreal that are already owned by the Aiel or by the Sea Folk cannot be claimed by the White Tower.
