Vandene Namelle was an Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah, though she had studied history for so long since going into retreat that she took on many of the mannerisms of a Brown (TGH, Ch. 22). When the Tower split, she joined the rebels and went with the Ebou Dar delegation to look for runaways. She was killed in Caemlyn by the Black Ajah after avenging the murder of her sister. She was slender with nearly white hair (TGH, Ch. 22) and fine bones, with a patrician face (LoC, Ch. 29) and dark eyes (KoD, Ch. 14) Despite the ageless look, she somehow manages to give an impression of age, especially after Adeleas' death (KoD, Ch. 14).



Adeleas was her twin sister (TGH, Ch. 22).

She had a warder, Jaem (TGH, Ch. 22).



"Adeleas claims I should have chosen Brown." (The Great Hunt, Chapter 22).

"'Watch where you are going, Accepted. In my day, an Accepted who tried to trample Aes Sedai would have had hair whiter than mine by the time she finished scrubbing floors'" (to Nynaeve, Lord of Chaos, Chapter 29).

"We are a contentious lot in many ways, we Aes Sedai, each jealous of her place and prerogatives, but when someone is placed above us or stands above us, we tend to follow her fairly meekly for the most part. However we might grumble about her decisions in private" (To Elayne, A Crown of Swords, Chapter 30).

"A gift from Adeleas" (Knife of Dreams, Chapter 31).
