WARNING! The next sections contain spoilers for the Wheel of Time television series.


Liandrin Guirale is an Aes Sedai of the Red Ajah. She along with seven more Aes Sedai are responsible for capturing the false Dragon Logain. After Kerene was killed by Logain, Liandrin gave the order to her Sisters to link with her, and together they gentled him.

In the One Power, Liandrin is strong, possibly of the same strength as Alanna and Kerene. She is one of the few who could keep the shield on Logain before he was gentled.


Liandrin is of unknown age, with light blond hair and blue eyes. She keeps her hair back and usually has some parts of it braided. She wears red clothing, matching her Ajah color.



Season 1

Liandrin and several other Red Sisters are observed by Moiraine and Lan, while they capture and possibly gentle a man, who has already gone mad due to channeling the male part of the One Power.

Later, Moiraine and Lan meet Liandrin and the other Aes Sedai who have captured Logain, on their way back to Tar Valon.

Liandrin is one of the few Aes Sedai in the Aes Sedai camp who could shield Logain from using the One Power. Her and Alanna are channeling, when Moiraine enters the cave to see Logain. Liandrin tells her that the Aes Sedai captured the false Dragon by creeping in his camp and shielding him while he was asleep. Then summoned lightning and scattered his army.

Liandrin believes that because Logain proclaimed himself the Dragon Reborn, he doesn't need a trial, but should be punished by being gentled on the spot. She then releases the shield on him, after Moiraine takes on her part of it. She walks outside through the camp and finds Nynaeve. Liandrin tells Nynaeve about Moiraine, and that the Blue Ajah fits her character. Then Liandrin invites Nynaeve to the Red Ajah tents, where "women are always welcome".

The next day, Liandrin and Kerene hold the shield on Logain. Liandrin keeps insisting that he needs to be gentled; they will not be able to keep his shield constantly until they reach Tar Valon; if he escapes their shield, the Three Oaths will allow them to gentle him. Kerene, as the leader of the group, talks Liandrin down.

After a while they hear commotion in the camp, but Liandrin believes that no army can get past seven full Sisters. This distraction leads to Logain breaking their shield, which sends Liandrin back in the air, and she falls unconscious. She comes to the same time Kerene does, and Moiraine also has come into the cave. The three of them hold Logain and try to shield him again. A counter attack of his kills Kerene and Liandrin starts drawing too much of the One Power, an amount that could kill her if the other Aes Sedai didn't join them. Stepin, Kerene's Warder, attacks Logain with his axes, but Logain breaks them into pieces and hurls them back at the Aes Sedai and Warders.

Liandrin is one of the wounded from that attack, but is healed by Nynaeve's burst of the One Power. While Logain is dazed by that, Liandrin uses the opportunity to gather all Aes Sedai and they link together. Then Liandrin uses the linked power of all women to gentle the false Dragon.

The next day Liandrin and the rest make a funeral for Kerene and the others who have fallen on both sides.

One month later, Liandrin leads the Aes Sedai into Tar Valon and is part of the procession that takes Logain through the streets of the city.

Inside the White Tower, Liandrin meets Nynaeve in the Warder's section, seemingly by accident. She tells her that she can take a walk in the gardens.

Later Liandrin speaks with Moiraine too, asking after Nynaeve. She believes that Nynaeve will become a Novice and might eventually choose the Red Ajah. Moiraine, however, does not believe that. Moiraine is told by Alanna that Liandrin gains supporters with the Sisters inside the tower, and not only with the Red Ajah.
