General

Aledrin Malenry is an Aes Sedai of the White Ajah who sides with the Salidar Aes Sedai. She is also a Sitter for her Ajah, and due to the fact that she is one of the younger Aes Sedai, it is likely that she was raised to the Hall after the split in the Tower (TPoD, Ch. 19). She is the second youngest Salidar Sitter, after Kwamesa (CoT, Ch. 19).

Aledrin is from Tarabon, but wears her hair in a net instead of in braids. Her hair is dark gold and shoulder-length. She has big, pale brown eyes and is a bit plump. Egwene thinks that she is quite lovely when she smiles (TPoD, Ch. 19; CoT, Ch. 19), though Romanda thinks that she falls short of pretty (KoD, Ch. 23).

Romanda thinks that she has a good head on her shoulders (KoD, Ch. 23).

When she was an Accepted, Aledrin was excitable (NS, Ch. 3). Egwene thinks to herself that Aledrin is a stickler for propriety, although Chesa is even more so, as to make Aledrin seem lax (CoT, Ch. 20).

Timeline

  • Tamra Ospenya summons all of the Accepted and sends them out to gather names for the bounty being given out to women who have recently given birth. Before Tamra arrives, Aledrin thinks that they have been summoned because they are all to be tested for the shawl immediately (NS, Ch. 3).
  • When the Hall votes on whether or not to go to war with Elaida, Aledrin stands, pulling Berana up with her (TPoD, Ch. 19).
  • The Hall meets to hear what the Aes Sedai sent to Shadar Logoth have found. Aledrin escorts Akarrin and the others before the Hall. She charges them to tell what they have learned, and then goes to sit on the White bench (CoT, Ch. 19).
  • When the Hall votes on whether or not to make an alliance with the Asha'man, Aledrin stands and votes "yes" (CoT, Ch. 19).
  • The Salidar Hall meets to hear and discuss Rand’s offer to allow them to bond 47 Asha’man. Aledrin enters with Saroiya. When Lelaine asks that the meeting be sealed to the Hall, Romanda asks Aledrin to make them private against eavesdropping. She seems uncertain of whether or not to speak the formal words, but since it is not a formal sitting, simply weaves the ward. When Merise enters the Hall, Aledrin actually squeaks out loud upon realizing that her Warder, Jahar, is an Asha’man. When Jahar announces that someone who can channel saidin is attempting to eavesdrop on them, Aledrin confirms that something touched her ward and that it wasn’t saidar. She is quite nervous and edges away when Jahar demonstrates using saidin on Saroiya so that Nacelle can test her new saidin detection weave. In the end, she stands in support of the bonding (KoD, Ch. 23).
  • After reunification, Aledrin steps down from her position as a Sitter (ToM, Ch. 27).

Quotes

  • Half the woman in the room seemed to be talking, all on top of one another. It was nearly impossible to make out what anyone in particular was saying, and the little Moiraine did hear was utter nonsense. All of them to be tested for the shawl? Immediately? Aledrin must have brain fever to be spouting such drivel. Well, she was excitable. (Moiraine thinks of Aledrin; New Spring, Chapter 3).
  • "There are those within earshot who are not of the Hall. What is spoken in the Hall of the Tower is for the Hall alone to hear, until and unless the Hall decides otherwise. I will make us private. I will seal our words to our ears only." (Aledrin to the Hall of the Rebel Tower; The Path of Daggers, Chapter 19).
  • "You have been called before the Hall of the Tower to relate what you have seen. I charge you to speak of these things without the evasion or holding back, and to answer all questions in complete fullness, leaving our nothing. Say now that you will do so, under the Light and by your hope of the rebirth and salvation, or suffer the consequences." (Aledrin to Akarrin and the others; Crossroads of Twilight, Chapter 19).
