Bennae Nalsad is an Aes Sedai of the Brown Ajah. She sided with Elaida when the Tower divided (KoD, Ch. 24).

Bennae has sharp blue eyes and dark hair streaked with gray. She is from Shienar (KoD, Ch. 24).

Bennae lectures novices about Cairhien, Andor, Tear, and Illian (TDR, Ch. 37).


  • Bennae is one of Egwene's teachers after she is captured. Bennae makes her perform an exhausting set of weaves and then discusses Shein Chunla's mistakes and several other subjects. Egwene tells her about the Thirteenth Depository and the six mutinies in the history of the White Tower (KoD, Ch. 24).
  • Bennae indirectly tells Egwene that she got in trouble for asking about the Thirteenth Depository and asks her advice on how to deal with the situation. She appreciates Egwene's help (TGS, Ch. 12).
  • Bennae all but recommends the Brown to Egwene (TGS, Ch. 16).
