The full name was not recorded in the main series, but was given in the Wheel of Time Companion. Other information about the character is also included in the Companion, but we did not use it in the TarValon.Net Library.

Jenare Balmaen is Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah (TPoD, Ch. 26). She is pale and sturdy (KoD, Ch. 27).


  • Elaida abandons the Aes Sedai sent to capture the Black Tower, including Jenare, at Alviarin's suggestion (ACoS, Ch. 32).
  • Lemai and Desandre order Jenare and the other captured, bonded Aes Sedai to be cordial to the Asha'man in order to lull them (CoT, Prologue).


"Strangest of all perhaps were Jenare, pale and sturdy in a grayish riding dress embroidered with red on the skirts, and Kajima, a clerkish fellow in his middle years who wore his hair like Narishma, in two braids with silver bells at the end. She laughed at something Kajima said, and murmured something that made him laugh in turn. A Red joking with a man who could channel!" (Rand's observation of Jenare and Kajima; Knife of Dreams, Chapter 27).
