Valene is new to the shawl, so she lacks the ageless look of the Aes Sedai.
Since Valene lacks the ageless look, she was chosen for the expedition to Cairhien.
Particularity of this characterEdit
Valene Sural is described only in "The Wheel of Time Companion", she is never mentioned in the main books of the Wheel of Time.
There is a mistake about the rank in the hierarchy between Covarla and Valene. They are at the same level of strength 21(9), but Valene, despite being much younger, theoretically stays a little higher than Covarla because she remained less years as novice and Accepted. Instead, in The Path of Daggers it was Covarla, as the highest in the hierarchy of their group, to report the disaster of Dumai's Wells to Elaida and, after that, to secretly lead the same group to Dorlan .
