Janny is Elenia Sarand's maid, so she is possibly Andoran as well. She is plump.

She has been Elenia's maid for twenty years and during this time she has delivered loyalty and discretion. Whenever Elenia feels particularly good, Janny is promised some fine new dresses.

Once, Elenia had to sleep in a tiny soldier's tent, but without Janny to help her with her clothes or to add a little warmth under the blanket.

She accompanies Elenia when she rides around Arymilla's camp. When Lord Nasin shows up, Janny keeps placing her brown mare between the newcomer and her mistress to prevent him from groping her. Mentally, Elenia adds some embroidery to the dresses she had promised Janny earlier. When Nasin looks about to punch Janny and the woman does not back away, she even decides on silk embroidery, even though it is unsuitable for a maid.

"Abruptly, he seemed to notice Janny for the first time, and with an irritated grimace, he raised his hand high, balling it into a fist. The plump woman visibly steeled herself for the blow without moving aside, and Elenia gritted her teeth. Silk embroidery. Definitely unsuitable for a maid, but Janny had earned it." (Elenia on Nasin and Janny; Crossroads of Twilight, Chapter 15)
