She was stilled along with Siuan. They escaped and met with other rebel Aes Sedai in Salidar. She was healed by Nynaeve and chose the Green Ajah.
Strengths and Talents
She renewed the friendship with Siuan and Moiraine once they were raised Aes Sedai (NS, Ch. 14) Leane is also close to several of her sisters, such as Siuan; Moiraine once noted that she thought that, no matter what, Leane would support Siuan. (TGH, Ch. 7) Similarly, Siuan includes Leane among the few people that she can trust. (TDR, Ch. 14)

"If I flirt with the right man, perhaps we will not need to worry about strappings or anything else. At the least, I might get us lighter sentences." (The Fires of Heaven, Chapter 1)
"I think perhaps I've always felt I was masquerading as someone else, building up a mask until it became second nature. There was serious work to be done, more serious than merchanting, and by the time I realized there was another way I could have gone even so, I had the mask on too firmly to take off." (The Fires of Heaven, Chapter 1)
"We are who we are. Question us. No impostor could know what we know." (The Fires of Heaven, Chapter 26)
