Evanellein Lorn is an Aes Sedai of the Gray Ajah who sides with Elaida when the White Tower splits (TFoH, Prologue). She is a Sitter for the Gray Ajah (TGS, Ch. 46).

She is very concerned with her looks and clothing, so much so that Elaida often thinks she should have been Green (TFoH, Prologue).

Evanellein was one of the Aes Sedai who aided Elaida in deposing Siuan and in gaining the Amyrlin Seat (TFoH, Prologue).

Evanellein meets with Elaida and her other supporters to discuss what is going on in the world. She tells Elaida and the others that Amathera has vanished in Tarabon, and that an Aes Sedai may have been involved in the disappearance (TFoH, Prologue).

Evanellein wants to pull Elaida down over what happened to Toveine and the others at the Black Tower (KoD, Prologue).

Evanellein isn't mentioned of Verin's list of Black Ajah members, but she flees the Tower before being asked to reswear the Oaths, making her a likely member of the Black Ajah. Therefore she doesn't get to vote for Egwene as the Amyrlin (TGS, Ch. 46).

She is killed by Egwene during the attack in tel'aran'rhiod in the White Tower (ToM, Ch. 38).
