Gendar is man from Mayene. He is one of Berelain's most excellent thief-catchers "experienced in ferreting out crimes" (ACoS, Ch. 5).

Perrin does not know who is Gendar and who is Santes. That either means they look very similar or he has not been introduced to them individually (WH, Ch. 5).


  • He accompanies Berelain to Tear (TDR, Ch. 53).
  • He and Santes find out that Colavaere had Maringil poisoned. Berelain tells Dobraine as much (LoC, Ch. 53).
  • They bring Annoura the servant who put the poison in Maringil's wine, as well as the two who waylaid High Lord Meilan (ACoS, Ch. 5).
  • When Perrin leaves Berelain's tent, he sees the thief-catchers laughing with Rosene and Nana, Berelain's maids. When he approaches them, Gendar and Santes disappear. All four of them think that Perrin has shared his bed with Berelain (WH, Ch. 5).
  • Berelain has Gendar and Santes them spy on Masema, taking wine they supposedly stole from her to make friends in the camp (CoT, Ch. 6).
  • Berelain sends them off to the camp with her last cask of Tunaighan, but when she talks to Perrin she says that they should have been back an hour ago (CoT, Ch. 6) and no one has seen or heard from them since. It is as clear to Gallenne that they have been killed as if a messenger had brought their heads (CoT, Ch. 25).


  • He and Santes, Berelain's other thief-catcher, share a tent in the Mayener part of Perrin's camp (TPoD, Ch. 8).
  • Perrin thinks both of them together do not find out half of what Balwer does. Berelain is not amused that Perrin makes her believe "that dried-up little secretary of [his] was finding out more than [her] thief-catchers when [he] ha[s] two dozen eyes-and-ears masquerading as Faile’s retainers" (WH, Ch. 5).
  • Perrin has never heard them saying more than three words together, so he is somewhat surprised to see them laughing with Berelain's maids (WH, Ch. 5).


"Talk stopped as he approached, and before he reached the fire, Santes and Gendar glanced from him to Berelain’s tent, faces absolutely blank, then pulled their cloaks around them and hurried away, avoiding his eyes." (Perrin about Berelain's thief-catchers as he leaves her tent; Winter's Heart, Chapter 5)
